Favorite Royal Images: Young Antoinette

Princess Antoinette of Luxembourg


  1. What a look! Is she the one who caused the fuss by marrying the Bavarian Crown Prince?

  2. She did marry Kronprinz Rupprecht von Bayern so, would have been the Queen had things not gone snafu in 1918. She was also, according to diehard Jacobites, "Queen of England, Scotland, Ireland and France" by that marriage.

  3. Ah, Queen of France.
    They'll never let that one go, eh?
    I could have sworn there was that whole hundred-year conflict that we fought over that...

  4. Oddly enough, it was the House of Hanover (longtime enemies of the French) who dropped the nominal claim to France but the French-allied Jacobites (as far as I know) never did.
