Such a large country is Mexico.
I see it takes 30 hours to drive from San Diego to that Castle and only one hour to drive to beachside resort towns on the Pacific.

The history in certainly interesting.

Would the Mexican people say that overthrowing the empires was worth it? Well, on the one hand Mexico does have a monarchist movement to this day, but, on the other hand, monarchism only enjoys the support of about five percent of Mexicans (by comparison, something like 13 percent of the population of the arch-republican United States are amenable to the idea of a constitutional monarchy), so I'd venture to say yes, the Mexican people by and large probably feel it was worth it to overthrow both empires.

Which certainly sheds some light as to why Maximilian von Götzen-Iturbide has been so reluctant to press his pretense to the Imperial Crown of Mexico.

The article MAXIMILIAN AND CARLOTA declares:
Carlotta was the dominant personality in the marriage and had to persuade her husband to take the throne of Mexico.

Well from the detailed books I read, it is really not sure she gave birth to Weygan.... unless a DNA test having proven it...
Maximilian had natural children. Members of her family told her doctors when she lost her reason that she never had intercourse. Of course we will never be sure... It may be completly false.
