A further newspaper article in March 1846 mentions that the marriage of Archduke Stephen with Grand Duchess Olga of Russia (1822-1892) a daughter of Emperor Nicholas I of Russia was looked upon as certain. Apparently negotiations for the proposed marriage went on for eighteen months. There were religious problems with Russia being Orthodox and Austria being Cathlic, with Emperor Nicholas supposedly consenting to the marriage of his daughter embracing the Catholic religion.

Princess Anna Monika Pia took centre stage in the news in 1908. Her parents were King Friedrich Augustus III of Saxony and his unconventional wife Archduchess Luisa Antoinette of Tuscany.
Luise didn't follow the etiquette at the Saxony court which resulted in arguments with her father in law King Georg of Saxony.
On 9 (or possibly 11/12) December 1902 Luisa with the assistance of her brother Archduke Leopold left Saxony without her children but pregnant (with Anna Monika) to meet up with the teacher of her children, André Giron. She was divorced on 11 February 1903 and created Countess of Montignoso on 13 July 1903. Luise married the Musician Enrico Toselli in London on 25 September 1907.
Anna Monika Pia was born on 4 May 1903 in Lindau, Bavaria and despite the efforts of the Court of Saxony who's representatives were present for the birth it was a number of years before her mother handed her over to her father.
