Madrid, ca. 1891. Original photograph, cabinetcard, albumen print, 16,5 x 10,5 cm. Maria Christina Henriette Desideria Felicitas Raineria of Austria, also known as Maria Christina Henrietta Désirée Félicité Rénière[2] (21 July 1858 - 6 February 1929) was Queen of Spain as the second wife of King Alfonso XII. She was regent the vacancy of the throne between her husband's death and her son's birth, and during the minority of their son, Alfonso XIII, between 1885 and 1902. Known to her family as Christa, she was born at Zidlochovice Castle (Groß Seelowitz), near Brno, in Moravia, a daughter of Archduke Karl Ferdinand of Austria and his wife, Archduchess Elisabeth Franziska of Austria. Her paternal grandparents were Archduke Charles of Austria and Princess Henriette Alexandrine of Nassau-Weilburg. Various sources attributed good traits to Maria Christina before her marriage. One states she was "tall, fair, sensible, and well educated". She was Princess-Abbess of the Theresian Royal and Imperial Ladies Chapter of the Castle of Prague (1875-1879). Maria Christina married King Alfonso XII of Spain on 29 November 1879 at the Basilica of Atocha in Madrid, and became the mother of his only three legitimate children: Infanta María de las Mercedes of Spain; married Prince Carlos of Bourbon-Two Sicilie. Infanta María Teresa of Spain; married Prince Ferdinand of Bavaria. Alfonso XIII of Spain (born posthumously); married Princess Victoria Eugenie of Battenberg. His previous wife was Mercedes of Orléans, who had died half a year after their marriage, leaving no issue. She lived a discreet life as queen. (Wikipedia). KEYWORDS:photo/spain.
