Maria Christina, Duchess of Teschen

Born in 1742 and died in 1798


Maria Christina, Duchess of Teschen, called "Mimi", was the fourth daughter and fifth child of Maria Theresa of Austria and Francis I, Holy Roman Emperor.

Maria Christina was the fourth but second surviving daughter of Maria Theresa, Queen of Hungary, Croatia and Bohemia and Francis I, Holy Roman Emperor.

She was her mother's favourite child because they shared the same birthday.

Maria Christina was not only beautiful but she was also highly intelligent and artistically gifted.

The doting partiality that the Empress showed her, caused intense jealousy with her brothers and sisters, especially Emperor Joseph II. His first wife, Isabella of Parma, became her best friend, and named her second daughter after her.
