|44||Archduke||Karl of Austria (1st Duke of Teschen)||1771||1847||Princess||Henriette of Nassau-Weilburg||1797||1829||Karl was created the Duke of Teschen (1st Duke of Teschen in Habsburg line) on 10 February 1822 following the death of his adopted father Duke Albert of Sachsen-Teschen, Karl was a brother of
Emperor Franz I of Austria,
Archduke Ferdinand of Austria (Grand Duke Ferdinando III of Tuscany)
and Archduke Joseph Anton of Austria (Palatine of Hungary).
To add some complication, Karl was the birth son of the Holy Roman Emperor Leopold II but was adopted by his uncle, Duke Albert of Sachsen-Teschen (1738-1822) (Albert was the husband of Leopold II's sister Archduchess Marie Christine of Austria (1742-1798) and was born Prince of Saxony and son of Friedrich August II, Elector of Saxony (August III, King of Poland). He was created Duke of Teschen by his brother-in-law Holy Roman Emperor Joseph II in 1766. When Albert died in 1822 he left his collection of 14,000 drawings and 200,000 prints in trust to Karl, which formed the nucleus of the Albertina Collection, one of the world's great art museums.
Henriette was a sister to Prince Wilhelm of Nassau-Weilburg

for this information). See also a posting in
The Alexander Palace Discussion Board
The New York Times reported that Mathilde died on 6 June 1867 in a somewhat different situation to the cigarette being the cause of the fire to her dress. The report said that Mathilde inadvertently trod on a "lucifer" match which was lying at her feet on the floor as she leaned out of the window talking to one of her relatives. Her Summer dress was in a blaze before she was aware of it etc etc. It was further mentioned that Mathilde was the intended wife of Prince (future King) Humbert of Italy. Humbert was in Paris when news of the accident to Mathilde reached him and he immediately left it was supposed for Vienna.
The fire took place on 22 May 1867 but it was not until 06 June that she died from her horrific injuries.
Another article mentions she was transported on a covered bed which was carried the whole distance by twenty military personnel to Schloss Hetzendorf Even the untimely death of Mathilde did not apparently stop her cousin Archduchess Maria Christina (wife of King Alfonso XII of Spain) from smoking cigarettes.

The wealth of Archduke Friedrich at the time of the report was estimated at over £40 million. Whether or not Archduke Friedrich succeeded in his claim isn't known to me at present.

18.1523 - The marriage of Archduchess Isabelle and Prince Georg was to lead to consternation within the respective families. They married on 10 February 1912 at the Schönbrunn Palace in the presence of Emperor Franz Joseph (grandfather to Prince Georg). Incompatibility lead to the couple quarrelling during their honeymoon period with Isabelle leaving Georg after just three days of Bavarian Court life. Attempts at reconciliation by the families were unsuccessful and their
marriage was dissolved by the Bavarian Supreme Court on 17 January 1913.
Perhaps snubbing of Isabelle by the Bavarian Royal family also had a bearing on the quick dissolvement of their marriage.
It is interesting to note that the Pope also issued a decree to dissolve the marriage
