Archduchess of Austria Luise (late 1890s)


Austrian Archduchess by birth, she was by marriage Crown Princess of Saxony as the wife of the future King Frederick Augustus III (Friedrich August III).

She was the second child of Ferdinand IV, the last Grand Duke of Tuscany and his second wife, Princess Alice of Bourbon-Parma. Through her mother, she was a great-great-granddaughter of Charles X of France.

She married Prince Frederick Augustus of Saxony at Vienna on 21 November 1891 in a lavish ceremony. Luise fulfilled her royal duties, and bore him six children; however, she did not follow etiquette at the strict Dresden court, which resulted in arguments.

Threatened by her father-in-law with being interned in a mental asylum at the Sonnenstein Castle for life, on 9 December 1902 and with the help of two of her maids, Luise (pregnant with her seventh child) fled from Dresden towards Lake Geneva to meet her elder brother.

Without consulting his son, King Georg of Saxony officially declared the civil divorce of the Crown Princely couple on 11 February 1903 by a special court. She died in poverty as a flower seller on 23 March 1947.
