BY LA MAHQCISE in. FONTENOY. THE Court of Vienna was quite en fete the other evening when the.' otllcia.1 engagement of Princess Isabella of Croy with Prince Frans of Bavaria was announced. The palace of Archduke Frederick \nd of in? eonsort Archduchess Isabella, born Princess of Croy, was Illuminated from top to bottom and tilled with the moat beautiful Mowers, as well as With the choicest members of the- Inner couit circle, to celebrate the occasion. The bridegroom that Is to be Is the third son of Prince Ludwin and Princess Maria Theresa of Bavaria. He Is also a grand-nephew of Archduchess Adel? gunde. Duchess of Modena, and Is lleu tenant-colonel and commander ot Bavatian No. 1, heavy cavalry regl ment. As to the bride, she is the only sis? ter of the now reigning linke Karl of Croy, and the daughter of the twelfth Duke Karl von Coy. \crto on the 28th of J-epttmber, lHUS, died during a hunting party at Karabaii' sa. wnlcn he was giving to his brother-in-law. Archduchess Isabella especially re? joices In this new tie, which connects her still further with the imperial and royal houses. For It U not yet fot gotten in Europe, nor possibly ip. America, what dlifu ultles preceded her own marriage with Archduke Ferdi? nand. Although mediatized, the house of Croy did not appear to the Haps hurgs sufficiently lofty for them to ally themselveB with, it, especially as In thin particular ease the intending bride? groom was nut only the favorite nephew of Archduke Albrecht, whose Immense wealth he was to Inherit, but also d-.-ariy beloved by the Emperor' himself. I However, the father of the then Isabella Cloy held firm and refused his own consent lj the union, except? ing on the condition tluit his daughter would enter the houso of llapstmrg with all the rights ac-orded to an Archduchess of Austria. The question became almost an int-rnational one at tlie time, and had It not been for Isa? bella's remarkable stubbornness und headstrongncss. It would very likely not have conic to pass at all. For Arch? duke Frledrlch'a character is not molded of the simo steely material a.v Isabella's, and without her ?'contin? ual support." he. without the possibility of a doubt, would have yielded and gone his way. At first Vienna and the Viennese did not accord to her what could be called a very warm Welcome. The higher aristocracy there, although as simple and charming in manners as they can be. have very fixed and deeply rooted opinions about who shall really become one of them, and when it happens that a non-royal or iron-imperial person is added lo the lung list of the Austrian i imperial family, it is the nobles them? selves, in thi immediate entourage of tlie Emperor, who resent it most. When one comes to think that when the late Empress Elizabeth, in all the glory and beauty of her youth, (she was still a mere girl) entered her hus? band's capital, sho was treated with a coldness she never forgave, because it happened that she was a princess "in" Bavaria, Instead of "of" Bavaria, and therefore strictly speaking not of royal birth, one may easily imagine what an upset resulted from the announce? ment that an Archduke of Austria was about to marry a Princess Croy. There was a general feeling .it the time that this alliance would prove an unlucky one for Emperor and country, and, bo be sure, one can state that it resulted at Icaat In one misfortune for t:..- crown. Count, ss Chotok. lady in waiting of Archduchess Isabella (Croyi. nnd who is now the morganatic wife of Arch? duke Franz Ferdinand, he-ir presump? tive, and bears the name of Duchess j of Hohenberg, as his morganatic wife, is a subject of rreat distress on the part of both Austria and Hungary, since her children are naturally debarred from ever succeeding to the double crown. The story of that "romantic'' mar? riage is very Interesting and curi? ous, if one goes right down to bed? rock. Before it took pla*.e Archduke Francis Ferdinand was?little as one might believe it from seeing him to tia>?suffering from consumption. He had tried cure after cure, watering place after watering place, the .sum? mit of the Alps, and the sand:- of the desert, in order to get rid of this ter? rible malady, but all in vain; and, completely discouraged, he returned to Vienna. A little later he went to visit Archduke Frederick In the country, and there met daily the lady-in-wait - Ing and read, r of Ap hduchess Isa? bella. "More Catholic than the Pope." as the saying p.".". Isabella, once she had become Archduchess of Austria, held the rights of so great a rank, far high? er than those actually born to it. and never did it occur to her that there might be some danger In allowing the not by any means pretty "Chotek," ss she called her. to be In the com? pany of Frans Ferdinand. She was therefore, horrified on discovering a locket, studded with magnificent dia? monds, and containing the miniature of the archduke in "Chotek's" bedroom. There was a frightful scene, as one may readily suppose. But the most amusing part of the whole thing is. that when he was questioned sharply by her. In order to tlnd out what he meant by "flirting" with her lady-ln waitlng, the Kood-hearted archduke re? plied, with immense simplicity, thai as C?untess ?'liotek had during some weeks looked after him with so great a care and solicitude that he already felt the better for It, he had made a vow to the effect that he would marry her In case of his entire recovery. This Is how to-day the heir presump? tive has no eligible son to present as heir to the throne to the people or Austria-Hungary when so great a misfortune happens as the death of Emperor Francis Joseph. On the other hand, one Is forced to admit that tin- "Duchess of Hohenberg" has certainly completed the cure which she so Btormlly began when Countess Cliotek. For It is Impossible to evoko from the darkest eornnr of one's mind any fears as to the excel? lent health of Francis Joseph's next successor. Indeed, she, may perchance have overdone It a trifle. For, juat like Aivhduke Friedrich himself, he 1? what tine might term, In speaking of ordinary people, a trifle "over the fence" In the matter of stoutness. That great old man. Prince Luit? pold, Regent of Bavaria, as well us tne Nestor of European rulers, and who celebrated quite lately the ninetieth anniversary of his birth, is the only .acrmau jp/lnce who has received, fromj France Ute Grand Cross of the Legion of Honor. Indeed, he has owned it for a very long time, for It was given to him on the .list of December, 1857. at which time tn- Military Moni? tor of the Kingdom of Havana pub? lished the following n te: "Hin Majes? ty Maximilian II. has deigned to uuthori/.e Lieutenant - General Luit? pold of Bavaria, commander of the Klrst Division, 10 accept and to wear th" Insignia of the Grand i'ross ot the Legion of H->nor." As a matter of fact, this high dis? tinction had been conferred a few Jays previously on the Bavarian prince by Napoleon III., to itrhoae person he had been attached by the King of Bavaria for the length of his stay, and tue prince actually received the Insignia above mentioned from the hands of the French Kmptror. Of course, ever since the war of 1870-1871, the rela? tions between Berlin and t'aris have remained sufficiently strained to pre? vent the L'Kion of Honor being given to any of the members of the imperial or royal houses of the CJcrman con? federation, i (Copyright, 1312. by tho Brentwood Company.?
