Could it have been Elizbeth that was jealous?


It's mentioned in Fraser's biography of MA that it was in fact Maria Christina (Mimi) was the sister the rest of the girls were jealous of, particularly because they knew MC was their mother's favorite; they shared the same birthday and got along well. MC was even allowed to marry for love, while like MA, the rest of the empress' daughters were married off to the monarchs of Europe to create new alliances with Austria's enemies.

Maria Carolina (known as Charlotte) was the one sister MA grew up closest to.

No, she married to the king of Naples, didn't she?

It was Maria Christina, not Maria Carolina, who married for love.

It seems Maria Elisabeth shared the same fate as her older sister, Maria Anna. They were both scarred by smallpox, but poor Maria Anna's existence was often denied.

I just returned today from Naples and have a number of photos to share, and some nice ones of Caserta, Marie Caroline's palace.

Tomorrow I visit Compiègne for the day with a friend. These are busy times on the cultural front! :)
