The brother of the Austrian emperor, Ferdinand Maximilian of Habsburg, was brought to the execution site by his adventurous nature.
A brief biography of the Colonel-General of the Austro-Hungarian Army.
Marie Antoinette has played a number of roles during her short life. They are performed by an exhibition at the Grand Palais in Paris. About 300 works of art borrowed from all over Europe are set in a spectacular spectacle. The administrators of the exhibition chose well when they invited Robert Carsen to design the exhibition. The imaginative Canadian opera director, among others the author of Dvořák's remarkable production of Rusalka in Paris in 2002 at the beginning of the Czech season in France, boldly combines scenery, light and music. And it offers the audience a dramatically theatrical journey through the life of the last French queen.
The suicide of Crown Prince Rudolf of Habsburg and his mistress Baroness Mary Vetser still offers a number of mysteries.
