Archduchess Maria Anna of Austria (1738-1789) was the daughter of Empress Maria Theresa of Austria. In July 1765 the Imperial family traveled to Innsbruck for the wedding of Archduke Leopold. They stopped in Klagenfurt, where Maria Anna visited the small monastery that belonged to the Order of Saint Elisabeth. In 1766 Maria Anna was made Abbess of the Imperial and Royal Convent for Noble Ladies in Prague. She gave up the Prague position and became an abbess in Klagenfurt.

Lucien Louis Joseph Napoléon Bonaparte, 4th Prince of Canino and Musignano (1828 – 1895), was a French cardinal. He was the son of Charles Lucien Bonaparte and his wife, Zénaïde Bonaparte. His paternal grandparents were Lucien Bonaparte and his second wife, Alexandrine de Bleschamp. His maternal grandparents were Joseph Bonaparte and Julie Clary. His godfather was the future Napoleon III, first cousin to both his parents. He was ordained to the priesthood on 13 December 1856 by Pope Pius IX, giving up his Italian title. He served at numerous posts both in France and in Italy. He was created Cardinal of Santa Pudenziana in 1868. In 1879, he was given the additional title of Cardinal Priest of S. Lorenzo in Lucina, as in this year Napoleon III's progeny has died out, while cardinal Lucien was the most genetically senior member of the Bonaparte family. Cardinal Bonaparte participated in the First Vatican Council. He also was one of the voting cardinals that elected Gioacchino Vincenzo Raffaele Luigi Cardinal Pecci, as Pope Leo XIII. He died in 1895 and was buried in Rome.

Infante Ferdinand of Spain (1609/1610-1641) was the son of King Philip III of Spain.   
Ferdinand was elevated to the Primacy of Spain in 1619, becoming Archbishop of Toledo. Shortly afterwards he was created Cardinal. The style Cardinal-Infante was a combination of his dignity as Cardinal and his station as a royal Prince (Infante) of Spain. Ferdinand was never ordained a priest. However, he received the minor orders.

Some of Archduke Rudolf (b. 1950) of Austria's children have been ordained into religious orders. I know Johannes (b. 1981) has been ordained as a priest, and Thomas (b. 1983) and Joseph (b. 1991) and their sister Marie-des-Neiges (b. 1986) have taken religious vows.

There are eight siblings in all, and only two, the oldest, Carl Christian, and the sixth, Franz, are married. So two children married, four in religious orders, and two, Priscilla and Michael, who are unmarried.

Here are a couple articles about Johannes: https://www.tagesanzeiger...tzt-moench/story/29486147
