According to Hola!, the 31-year-old princess was a descendant of Emperor Karl I and Zita de Borbon-Parma. Tatler describes the princess as descending “from the Habsburg dynasty.” Her great-grandparents “were the last Emperor and Empress of Austria.” After World War I, Maria’s great-grandparents were exiled from Austria. Her great grandfather was Charles I of Austria.
The Hapsburg line comes through Maria’s mother, Maria Anna, who is the daughter of Archduke Rudolf of Austria, Charles I’s youngest son, according to Paper City. Her father Piotr was described as a “Russian aristocrat.” The Hapsburg dynasty ruled Austria for nearly 600 years, the magazine notes. The family is quite cosmopolitan in nature. One of Galitzine’s sisters, Tatiana, told that publication, “At home, my father speaks Russian to us, the girls speak French to each other, and the boys speak German.”
