: Last month I posted a thread on this subject
: as I had read on PdV that it might have been
: ADss Maria Teresa (née Braganza) the author
: of the plan to create an independent
: grand-duchy of Lorraine for Max Hohenberg,
: and that she had written to the kaiser
: asking his support.
: I am reading Greg King and Sue Wolmans'
: "The Assassination of the
: Archduke" and it seems the idea came
: from Kaiser Wilhelm who presented it to
: Franz Ferdinand when he visited the ADke at
: Konopisteck on the early summer of 1914.
: I am loving the book ... and I loved
: Interesting to read that Q.Mary, herself the
: product of a morganatic marriage, had some
: reserves on Sophie Chotek, reserves that
: were swept away when the two ladies had the
: chance to meet and talk.
