Biography[edit]

She was born in Vienna on 27 January 1892 to Archduke Franz Salvator of Austria and his cousin Archduchess Marie Valerie, youngest daughter of Emperor Franz Joseph I of Austria. She married at Niederwallsee on 19 September 1912 Georg Graf von Waldburg zu Zeil und Hohenems (1878–1955). The marriage was one of love and not a political marriage. Georg Graf von Waldburg had no money or property, and had been hired as a tutor for her brothers.[1] She died on 29 January 1930.
