Notes A Portrait presumed to be Arcduchess Hildegard of Austria, Duchess of Teschen (1825-64) with Child. Hildegard was the wife of the sucessful austrian Field Marshal, Archduke Albrecht, the victor of the battle of Custozza in 1866. The Child could be one of the three born to the couple; Arduchess Maria Theresia (1845-1927), Archduke Karl (1847-8) and Archduchess Mathilde (1849-1867), who tragically died in her teens when she hid a cigarette in her dress during a family party. Her clothes caught fire and she died of burns in front of her whole family.
