Archduchess of Austria (1738) Maria Anna


Austrian royalty, the second but eldest surviving daughter of Maria Theresa, Queen of Hungary and Bohemia, and Francis I, Holy Roman Emperor. She was known as "Marianna."

Maria Anna was described as her father's favourite, sharing his interest in science, chemistry and physics. She completed her father's coin collection, wrote a book about her mother's politics, drew and painted.

Maria Anna was intelligent but physically disabled, suffering from a fusion of her spine which caused a lump on her back. In 1757, she contracted pneumonia and permanent damage to her breathing capacity. Maria Anna's health deteriorated further in 1788, and she died on 19 November 1789. Close to her younger sister Maria Elisabeth, the two lived together in the same convents till their deaths.
