Move[edit]

The lady never became empress-consort of Austria since her husband shot himself before he assumed the throne. Therefore request to move to her maiden form of title. Gryffindor 12:24, 10 March 2006 (UTC)

  • Support - To the casual observer, Stephanie would appear to be the deceased Empress/Queen consort of Emperor/King Someone of Somewhere, since her article is titled as those of Mary of Teck and Alexandra Fyodorovna of Hesse. She is not. Prsgoddess187 12:54, 10 March 2006 (UTC)
  • Support as per Wiki standards, this woman was never queen-empress. Charles 14:46, 10 March 2006 (UTC)

Search Issues[edit]

Typing

Stephanie of Belgium

in the search box doesn't find this page. However, typing

"Stephanie of Belgium"

does. A subtle point, but rather user unfriendly, no?

Considering this lady never became empress-consort of Austria, shouldn't this article's name revert to her maiden form of "Princess Stéphanie of Belgium"? Wikipedia:Naming conventions (names and titles) on naming queen consorts (point 9) does not apply in this case, but point 4. Gryffindor 11:21, 10 March 2006 (UTC)

Memoirs[edit]

What conceivable court could have prevented Princess Stéphanie from publishing her memoirs? Austria was a republic in 1935, and I imagine it had other worries (such as imminent annexation by Germany) than what was in the memoirs of a defunct princess. Gsandi 13:40, 2 February 2007 (UTC)

Defunct? Princess Stéphanie wanted to publish her memoirs and in 1935 she was alive. Maybe Austria government was afraid that the truth about Mayerling would be disclosed.


Photo[edit]

Is the present photo really Stephanie of Belgium? It doesn't seem her. It is more like Queen Alexandra of UK, wife of Edward VII.
