Prince Albrecht (eldest son of Crown Prince Rupprecht of Bavaria) with his first cousins, Maria Antoinetta, Maria Cristina, Barbara, Lucie and Urraca of Bourbon-Two Sicilies. The princesses' mother was Princess Maria of Bavaria who married the Duke of Calabria in 1897. (Maria's only son, Ruggerio, died in 1914, at the age of 13.)
The postcard on top shows Prince Albrecht with his maternal first cousins, Leopold and Marie José of Belgium. Their mother, Queen Elisabeth, and Albrecht's mother, Marie-Gabriele, were sisters.
