Princess Sophie von Hohenberg

Princess Sophie of Hohenberg (24 July 1901 – 27 October 1990) was the only daughter of Archduke Franz Ferdinand of Austria and his morganatic wife Sophie, Duchess of Hohenberg.

Following the assassination of her parents, Sophie and her two surviving brothers, Maximilian and Ernst, were taken in by their father's close friend and shooting partner Prince Jaroslav von Thun und Hohenstein.

In late 1918, their properties in Czechoslovakia including Konopiště and Chlumec nad Cidlinou were confiscated. The children moved to Vienna and Schloß Artstetten. But in 1938, following the Anschluss they were arrested and deported to Dachau concentration camp where they spent the next seven years of their lives.

Sophie married Count Friedrich von Nostitz-Rieneck on 8 September 1920; they had four children:

* Count "Erwein" Maximilian Franz Peter Paul Hubertus Konrad Maria von Nostitz-Rieneck (1921–1949)
* Count "Franz" von Assisi Friedrich Ernst Leopold Josef Maria von Nostitz-Rieneck (1923–1945)
* Count "Aloys" Karl Joseph Maria von Nostitz-Rieneck (1925–2003) married Countess Theresia von Waldburg-Zeil
* Countess "Sophie" Amalia Theresia Quirinia Henriette Lucretia Magdalena Maria Ignatia von Nostitz-Rieneck (born 1929) married Baron Ernst von Gudenus

She lived to be 89 years old, dying in October 1990 and outliving all three of her younger siblings.

Fictional appearances

A fictional version of Princess Sophie, played by Danish actress Amalie Alstrup, appeared in "Vienna, November 1908," an episode of "The Young Indiana Jones Chronicles" later re-edited to form half of "The Perils of Cupid". Young Indy falls in love with the princess and shares his first kiss with her, but is forbidden from seeing her further.
