Guests at the Wedding of Archduke Imre

I went through the pictures of the wedding of Archduke Imre and new Archduchess Kathleen of Austria taken by Marlene A. Koenig from the Royal Musings blog (in case you've hadn't had a look you, I encourage you to do so: "Archduke Imre and Archduchess Kathleen of Austria" and "Washington's Imperial Wedding: Archduke Imre and Kathleen Walker") to see who attended the wedding.

The groom's parents Archduke Carl-Christian of Austria and Archduchess Marie-Astrid of Austria (née Princess of Luxembourg) and their children Archduchess Marie-Christine, Archduke Christoph, Archduke Alexander and Archduchess Gabriella. Archduchess Marie-Christine's husband Count Rodolphe de Limburg-Stirum was also among the guests.

The groom's cousins, and children of Grand Duke Henri, Prince Félix, Prince Louis, Princess Alexandra and Prince Sébastien of Luxembourg also attended the wedding.

The groom's aunt Princess Margaretha of Liechtenstein (née Princess of Luxembourg) and her children Princess Marie-Astrid and Prince Josef of Liechtenstein were present as well.

While the twin brother of Princess Margaretha, Prince Jean, was not in Washington D.C., his children and thus cousins of the groom Princess Marie-Gabrielle, Prince Constantin, Prince Wenceslas of Nassau and Prince Carl of Nassau were.

The groom's uncle Prince Guillaume of Luxembourg, his wife Princess Sibilla and their youngest son Prince Jean were also among the guests.

From the other side of his family tree, Archduchess Marie-Hélène of Austria (née de Villenfagne de Vogelsanck), wife of Archduke Rudolf, who is the older brother of the groom's father, and her children Archduchess Priscilla, Archduke Franz-Ludwig and Archduke Michael were pictured.

Archduke Carl-Christian's sister Archduchess Alexandra of Austria and her husband Héctor Riesle Contreras came with their son Felipe Riesle de Habsbourg-Lorraine.

Archduke Simeon of Austria, who is a cousin of Archduke Carl-Christian, was also among the guests.

As were Archduke Simeon's sister Archduchess Maria-Anna of Austria, a married Princess Galitzine, and her children Princess Tatiana and Prince Ioann Galitzine.

Archduke Simeon's and Archduchess Maria-Anna's younger half-sister Archduchess Catharina-Maria, married Countess Secco di Aragona, was also in attendance.

Archduchess Maria-Beatrice of Austria (married Countess of Arco-Zinneberg), another cousin of Archduke Carl-Christian, and her daughter Countess Margherita of Arco-Zinneberg made their way to Washington D.C. with another few members of the Arco-Zinneberg family.

Prince Alois-Konstantin of Löwenstein-Wertheim-Rosenberg, who is a knight of the Order of the Golden Fleece, and his wife Princess Anastasia of Löwenstein-Wertheim-Rosenberg (née Princess of Prussia) were among the guests.

From Portugal there were the Duke of Branganza and the Duchess of Braganza.

Other guests I could indentify were Prince Jean-Christophe Napoleon, Princess Maria-Luisa of Bulgaria, Duchess Marie-Thérèse of Croy and Prince Carl-Philipp of Croy.

Further guests included Adélaïde Drapé-Frisch, fiancée of Archduke Christoph, and Claire Lademacher, girlfriend of Prince Félix.
