Miramare Castle in Trieste was built for Emperor Maximilian and his wife Empress Carlotta.  I'd love to see it someday; it looks so beautiful and apparently there are even references to Mexico throughout it.

I actually became interested in Emperor Maximilian when I saw a meme of how he and Nicolas Cage are doppelgangers!  I'm not overly proud of that.  Secret

Empress Charlotte tried to take an active interest in her imperial duties. She toured the Yucatan and hosted charity events. However, by 1865-1866 she was wilting. She hated Mexico City. She found it overwhelmingly dirty and dangerous. Thumb down Thumb down Thumb down Thumb down

I don't know how many of you listen to podcasts, but Stuff You Missed in History Class did a podast on Charlotte/Carlota in April if anyone is curious to know more about her and Maximilian.

While several European powers including Great Britain recognized the monarchy of the Empire of Mexico, the United States considered Benito Juarez as the legal president of Mexico.

Of course they didn't. A republic not even 100 years old and in the middle of a war, they didn't need this enemy/threat beside them.
