It's funny how the youngest of the Hapsburg children turned out to be the prettiest!

Yes, I have known that to happen in other large families. The youngest are so often the most beautiful. I don't know the reason for it. Interesting.

Which one ? All these Habsburg girls are called Marie ! You have to use their own names ! For instance, Marie Antoinette is Antoinette. Marie Charlotte is Charlotte (they would later say Caroline).

Thank you for stating that, Pim! I always get so annoyed when ignorant people call her "Marie" thinking that it is her first name, and that Antoinette is her last. Her last name is not Antoinette, her whole first name is Marie Antoinette! That's why you never see any movies simply called "Marie." Her last name is Hapsburg, no? And I think there's a Lothloringen or something to that effect in there.

I am afraid they called her "Marie" is Sofia Coppola's recent catastrophy... :oops: Ddin't they also in Van Dyke's ?

Her full name is Maria Antonia Josepha Johanna von Habsburg-Lothringen.

Her name was thus Antonia, or Antoine or Antoinette, and her "name day" was on Sint Anthony, on June 13th.

I wonder, for "Toinette" is a current nickname for "Antoinette". But I don't know... Where did you read that, dear ? It is very interesting !

:? I'll have to check and get back to the post, I've had to return my books to the library and am waiting to get them from Amazon! I want to say Webster's 'Louis XVI and M.A. Before the Revolution' but am not certain..

Ah .. I did not realise she had been called Marie in the film ... I suppose that explains why people turn up here and refer to her by that name, I had wondered. That is a very elemental mistake for the film makers to make though .. how in hell did they manage to do that?

Yes, in the 1938 movie Fersen calls her Marie, but when does anyone call her Marie in the new one?

Oh, yes, I think I remember Jason calling her that at some point. Isn't it during her birthday party?
