Untitled[edit]

Mary didn't "pick" Maximilian--her father and step-mother had been working on him for years as a possible match for her, as well as to keep the French away. Why are you using the 1911 encyclopedia as a reference for this?

Residence[edit]

Does anyone know where the lady lived about the time when her father died? I am extensively researching her.

Pictures[edit]

The Dutch & Flemish articles have two very good pics which aren't yet on commons. I'm no good on pics - can someone put them there & here? Thanks Johnbod 17:46, 4 January 2007 (UTC) Done now Johnbod 00:30, 5 January 2007 (UTC)

I have a sideboard cabinet purchased from an antique store (originally shipped here to states from Paris) .. with brass pictures on it (3 D). Under Mary and Maximillian's it has their names. It also shows some other ancestors (Durk 1V, and V11). And 4 others. Along with this it shows 2 castles. I cannot read the names, since they have been polished almost off. Does anyone have photo's to the castles where she was born? It shows a 3D picture of Mary and Maximillian exchanging rings...so I assume the two castles are family residences. It also shows family crest over each castle.
