14.21 - Louise eloped to Nice 1898 with her husband's chamberlain Géza Mattachich (1868-1923). She was eventually captured and returned to Vienna and placed in a lunatic asylum at the instigation of her husband. Prince Philip was considered one of the most dissolute princes and his drunken and violent behaviour towards his wife led to her attachment to Géza Mattachich. Louise managed to escape in 1904 and fled to France with her lover Géza Mattachich, she
obtained her divorce from her husband Philip in 1906 (one source mentions 1907) and
lived the rest of life with Géza Mattachich although they never married. Géza Mattachich was the stepson of Count Oskar Keglewitch (or Keglevich) and unofficially assumed the countly title of his stepfather (i.e. assumed title Count Keglewitch).
It was reported in 1905 that two eminent specialist jointly appointed by friends of Louise and Philip after examination pronounced her sane. However in 1923 it was reported that Louise who was in financial straits was allowed by her sister Princess Stephanie to spend the rest of her life in the castle of Oraszvar, in Hungary, on condition that she parted from Géza Mattachich which she apparently agreed.
An interesting article from The New York Times which includes the introduction to a book by Géza Mattachich.
It was reported that Prince Philip offered a reward of £3,000 in 1904 for the recapture of his wife Louise.
According to The New York Times 31 December 1905 Prince Philip was to pay Princess Louise $211,000 a year as alimony plus $1,000,000 by instalments as part of the settlement for their divorce.
