Robert, Archduke of Austria-Este (given names: Robert Karl Ludwig Maximilian Michael Maria Anton Franz Ferdinand Joseph Otto Hubert Georg Pius Johannes Marcus d'Aviano)( 8 February 1915 – 7 February 1996), was the second son of Karl I, (beatified) last Emperor of Austria-Hungary, and Princess Zita of Bourbon-Parma. He was also known as Robert Karl Erzherzog von Österreich.


On 16 April 1917, at the age of two, his father the Emperor ceded the title of Archduke of Austria-Este in Robert's favor. Archduke Robert was thereby chosen to preserve, in the form of a distinct secundogeniture, the Habsburg-Lorraine representation of the once-sovereign Duchy of Modena which had belonged to the House of Este. He was thus made heir to his assassinated relative Archduke Franz Ferdinand of Austria, (1863–1914), who had inherited in 1875 the Austria-Este designation and what had been salvaged of the Este fortune when the duchy was annexed to Italy in 1860.


Princess Margherita of Savoy-Aosta (7 April 1930) is the first-born child of the late Amedeo, 3rd Duke of Aosta, and Princess Anne d'Orléans.


Robert and Margherita married on 28 December 1953 in Bourg-en-Bresse, Ain, France (civilly) and 29 December 1953 (religiously), in Brou, France.

It is unknown to me who designed the wedding dress.


The couple had 5 children, among other Lorenz, who married Princess Astrid of Belgium.

The Archduchess Maria Beatrice of Austria-Este (wearing the Austria-Este Tiara), daughter of Archduke Robert of Austria and Princess Margherita of Savoy-Aosta, and Count Riprand von und zu Arco-Zinneberg married at Niederaltaich Abbey in Bavaria in 1980. Count Riprand of Arco-Zinneberg, a great-grandson of the last Bavarian king, Ludwig III. The couple has 6 daughters, among others  Olympia von und zu Arco-Zinneberg, who is married to Jean-Christophe, Prince Napoléon.

Maria Beatrice is the older sister of Archduke Lorenz, who is married to Princess Astrid of Belgium and also a first cousin to Archduke Carl Christian, who is married to Princess Marie Astrid of Luxembourg.


Yet again it is unknown to me who designed the wedding dress. The bride wore the Austria-Este tiara.




She and her daughter look identical! I had to scroll back up to your details after seeing her picture because there was no way this wasn’t Olympia’s mother. Wow.

Gloria, Dowager Princess of Thurn and Taxis (Mariae Gloria Ferdinanda Joachima Josephine Wilhelmine Huberta; born Countess Gloria von Schönburg-Glauchau)(23 February 1960) is a German socialite, businesswoman, philanthropist, Catholic activist, and artist. Countess Gloria von Schönburg-Glauchau was born on 23 February 1960 in Stuttgart, Baden-Württemberg, West Germany. Her father, Joachim, Count of Schönburg-Glauchau, was the nominal head of the Glauchau branch of the German princely Schönburg family, a mediatised dynasty within the former Holy Roman Empire. Her mother, Countess Beatrix Széchenyi de Sárvár-Felsővidék, was a member of the Hungarian nobility and a descendant of Count István Széchenyi. Her parents divorced in 1986 and her father married a second time to Ursula Zwicker. Gloria descends from various European royal and noble families including the Chotek von Wognin, Trubetskoy, Rechteren-Limpurg-Speckfeld, Kinsky and Golitsyn. She is one of five children from her father's two marriages.


Johannes, 11th Prince of Thurn and Taxis (5 June 1926 – 14 December 1990) was a German businessman and head of the House of Thurn und Taxis from 1982 until his death. Johannes was born at Schloss Höfling in Regensburg, Germany, to Karl August, 10th Prince of Thurn and Taxis, and Infanta Maria Anna de Braganza. He had two older sisters and one younger brother.


In the 1970s Johannes threw avant-garde parties and, because he was bisexual, he was often seen in gay discos. Before he was married, his "constant companion" was Princess Henriette von Auersperg, later von Bohlen und Halbach. On 31 May 1980 he married the much younger Countess Gloria of Schönburg-Glauchau (born 1960). The pair were fourth cousins twice removed, both descended from Karl Alexander, 5th Prince of Thurn and Taxis. The Schönburg-Glauchaus were a mediatised branch of the Schönburg dynasty of counts, which still possessed large estates in Germany after World War I, but became refugees in Africa under the Nazi regime and fell on hard times. The couple attracted massive media attention into the mid 1980s, with a haut bohème lifestyle locating them among the jet set and the Princess Gloria's over-the-top appearance (characterized by bright hair color and flashy clothes) prompted Vanity Fair to describe her as "Princess TNT, the dynamite socialite", a sobriquet that stayed with her a long time. The couple had three children.


The wedding dress of Gloria was by Valentino



May I add that Gloria wore a tiara  from the French royal jewels on her wedding day? https://www.tatler.com/ar...the-month-empress-eugenie

Astrid of Sweden (17 November 1905 – 29 August 1935) the third child and youngest daughter of Prince Carl, Duke of Västergötland, and his wife, Princess Ingeborg of Denmark. Her father was the third son of Oscar II, King of Sweden and Norway, by his wife, Sophia of Nassau. Her mother was a daughter of King Frederick VIII of Denmark by his wife, Louise of Sweden. As an eligible princess, Astrid was mentioned as a potential bride for a number of princes including the future Edward VIII of the United Kingdom and the future Olav V of Norway. Astrid's successful suitor was Prince Leopold of Belgium, Duke of Brabant. In September 1926, their engagement was announced. In Stockholm on 4 November 1926 civilly and in Cathedral of St. Michael and St. Gudula, Brussels on 10 November religiously, Princess Astrid married Prince Leopold. They had 3 children. On 17 February 1934, King Albert I died in a mountain-climbing accident in Marche-les-Dames, Belgium. Leopold and Astrid became the new King and Queen of the Belgians with the style of Majesty. She died in an car accident, which left her husband injured.


Leopold III[1] (3 November 1901 – 25 September 1983) was King of the Belgians from 1934 until 1951. Prince Leopold was born in Brussels, the first child of Prince Albert, Duke of Brabant, heir to the Belgian throne, and his consort, Duchess Elisabeth in Bavaria. In 1909 his father became King of the Belgians, as Albert I, and Prince Leopold became Duke of Brabant. He married Princess Astrid of Sweden in a civil ceremony in Stockholm on 4 November 1926, followed by a religious ceremony in Brussels on 10 November. The marriage produced three children. On 29 August 1935, while the king and queen were driving along the winding, narrow roads near their villa at Küssnacht am Rigi, Schwyz, Switzerland, on the shores of Lake Lucerne, Leopold lost control of the car which plunged into the lake, killing Queen Astrid. Leopold married Lilian Baels on 11 September 1941 in a secret, religious ceremony, with no validity under Belgian law. They originally intended to wait until the end of the war for the civil marriage, but as the new Princess of Réthy was soon expecting their first child, the ceremony took place on 6 December 1941. They had three children in total.


For the civil ceremony, Astrid wore a white satin gown trimmed with seed pearls. She donned the same Brussels lace veil that had been worn by her mother and her sister Margaretha at their own weddings, plus a traditional crown of Swedish myrtle. A necklace (possibly the diamond necklace given to her by King Gustaf?) was the only significant jewel she wore with her ensemble.

In Sweden, Astrid received a number of sparkling wedding presents. The people of the city of Stockholm gave her an unusual diamond and pearl tiara made by Andersson. Astrid’s uncle, King Gustaf, gave her a diamond necklace, while her parents gave her a ruby necklace and a diamond and emerald brooch. Another newspaper report identifies Astrid’s parents’ gift as an emerald and diamond necklace. Leopold’s parents presented their new daughter-in-law with a tiara set with diamonds and a single large emerald.

On November 9, Astrid arrived in Belgium, and the crowds were so massive that she and the royal party were jostled about during her reunion with Leopold. The following day, the couple married in a religious ceremony at the Cathedral of St. Michael and St. Gudula in Brussels. Thousands gathered inside the cathedral to await the arrival of the bride and groom; their wait was fairly long, as delays meant that Astrid arrived at the church half an hour later than expected. When she stepped out of her carriage, she was wearing a second white wedding gown, but the same veil of Brussels lace covered her head. A necklace was again her only major piece of jewelry, but during the religious ceremony, Leopold gave her a ring set with a diamond.

Astrid didn’t wear a tiara to either of her wedding ceremonies, but the Belgian government was planning a major new tiara gift for their new Duchess of Brabant. In February 1927, they presented Astrid with the Nine Provinces Tiara, a grand diadem made by Van Bever of platinum and diamonds, including eleven large diamonds sourced from the Congo, which was then a Belgian colony. The New York Times explained, “The diadem is so made that it can be taken apart without difficulty and made into bracelets, rings, necklaces, or brooches, should the fashion change or its shape cease to please.” Astrid only had a few years to wear her tiara; she died in a tragic car accident in 1935. But the tiara is still with the Belgian royal family today

Sophie Anastasia Assunta Marie Pauline of Württemberg was born 15 January 1994 in Munich, Germany as the daughter of Duke Philipp Albrecht Christoph Ulrich Maria of Württemberg and Princess Marie-Caroline Hedwig Eleonore of Bavaria.

Through her paternal grandfather Carl, Duke of Württemberg (born 1936) Sophie is a descendant of the former royal family of the Kingdom of Württemberg near Bavaria. Sophie is also related to the Orléanist claimant to the French throne, Prince Henri, Count of Paris (1908-1999), who was the father of her grandmother Diane, Duchess of Württemberg (née Princess Diane Francoise Maria da Gloria d’Orleans in 1940). Sophie’s maternal grandparents are Max-Emanuel Ludwig Maria Herzog in Bayern (sometimes styled Prince Max of Bavaria, Duke in Bavaria) and Duchess Elisabeth of Bavaria (née Swedish Countess Elisabeth Douglas).


Duchess Sophie of Württemberg married French Count Maximilien d’Andigné (1989), son of Count Hervé d’Andigné and Marie-Adélaïde de la Barre de Nanteuil.


The couple got married in a Civil Ceremony at Schloss Altshausen, the home of her paternal grandparents, on September 15, 2018


Sophie wore a vintage white shift dress that used to belong to her ever stylish maternal grandmother, duchess Elizabeth in Bayern (née Douglas).  The pearl choker with a central Brazilian emerald was a wedding gift from Sophie's paternal grandparents, Carl& Diane von Württemberg. Sophie had been crazy about the design for a while. After the wedding ceremony which took place in one of the state drawing rooms of Schloss Alsthausen there was a champagne reception. At night a gala was held for the 62 guests. The bride switched outfit.





The religious wedding took place on October 20th, 2018 at the Parish Church of St. Quirinus in Tegernsee, a town in the Miesbach district of Bavaria, Germany, on the shore of Lake Tegernsee. For her wedding day, the bride chose to wear two custom dresses: one for the church ceremony and reception, and one for the cocktail party and dancing that followed. She paired both gowns with a family tiara, an heirloom veil, and her engagement ring from Max, who proposed in July 2017 while on vacation in Venice, Italy.

Duchess Sophie wore a white gown which was created in Stuttgart, along with a lace veil and the Württemberg ‘Small’ Diamond Tiara, which is the traditional wedding Tiara for most Württemberg brides.


In the evening, the couple celebrated their wedding ball at the Schloss Tegernsee (Tegernsee Castle).
