habsbourg lorraine


(modern ladies) napoleonic edition: Maria Ludovica Leopoldina Francisca Theresa Josepha Lucia de Habsbourg-Lorraine; Marie-Louise d'Autriche, Impératrice des Français

Marie-Louise is the eldest child of the Habsburg Emperor Francis II of Austria and his second wife, Maria Theresa of Naples and Sicily. When she was nineteen years old, the future which Marie-Louise envisioned for herself included remaining in the court of Austria as her older brother’s regent. But her plans unravel when the news arrives that she is to marry Napoleon which she dutifully agrees despite being raised to despise France (and always always remembering the fate of her great aunt Marie Antoinette). For the first time, Marie-Louise realizes  what it means to be a royal. She is a pawn in a game much larger than Austria.
