May 21, 1864: The Birth of Princess Stéphanie
Today is the birthday of Princess Stéphanie of Belgium, the second daughter of King Leopold II and Queen Marie-Henriette, and an often forgotten victim of the Mayerling tragedy. (Above is a photograph of Princess Stéphanie with her husband, Crown Prince Rudolf of Austria-Hungary). I have discussed the Princess in more detail in the past, HERE and HERE. Finally, HERE are some beautiful paintings of Stéphanie.
