✧ Empress Elisabeth of Austria and her family Spam [39/50] ✧
Ten months later Sisi’s youngest daughter, Marie Valerie, was born. She was called, affectionately, the “Hungarian child” and was raised in the Hungarian language beloved by Sisi. She was always closer to her mother than those children raised by Sophie. In 1890, Valerie married her close cousin Archduke Franz Salvator a relatively minor prince from the Tuscan branch of the Austrian imperial family who had no great wealth to offer. But Elisabeth, as promised, supported her favorite daughter. This caused a deep rift between Valerie and her sister and brother Crown Prince Rudolf for a time, but eventually Rudolf became reconciled to the marriage when Valerie and Franz became engaged at Christmas 1888. They had 10 children, while the marriage of Valerie and Franz was harmonious at first, it became less so with time, Franz had many affairs. She was known and loved for her generous involvement in local charitable endeavors. Valerie died in Schloss Wallsee on 6 September 1924 of lymphoma.

She looks like her mom.
