1900 Archduke Joseph Karl Ludwig of Austria, Clotilde von Sachsen-Coburg und Gotha, Archduchess Maria Dorothea of Austria, Archduchess Margarethe Klementine of Austria by Károly Koller


The sitters are (l. to r.) Clotide's youngest daughter Clotilda Maria, Archduchess Clotilde, Clotilde's next-to-youngest daughter Elisabeth, Archduke Joseph, Clotilde's daughter Maria Dorothea, and Archduchess Margaretha Sophie. However, could the Lady identified as Margaretha Sophia, not part of Clotilde's immediate family, be Clotilde's daughter Margarethe Klementine?

Leg-o-mutton no longer the rage in 1900, although Clotilde Maria's dress shows a bit of leg-o-mutton. All wear straight coiffures and four of them have braises buns on top while Maria Dorothea wears a small bun. All of their dresses have high enclosing necklines, caused by blouses in the cases of Maria Dorothea and Margaretha Sophie who are wearing jackets.
