Archduchess Maria Antonia of Austria,  Princess of Tuscany,  was the sixth of ten children of  Archduke Leopold Salvator of Austria, Princess of Tuscany, and Infanta Blanca of Spain.
She was born Maria Antonia Roberta Blanka Leopoldina Karole Josepha Raphaela Michaela Ignatia Aurelia in Zagreb on July 13, 1899.  She was married twice.  The first marriage took place in Barcelona on July 16, 1924, when she married Ramon Orlandis y  Villalonga (1896-1936.)  In 1942, in Uriguay, she married Argentine-born Don Luis Perez Sucre.

The archduchess and her first husband were the parents of five children who bore the surname Orlandis y Habsburgo: Blanca Maria (1926-1969), Juan, Baron de Pinopar (1928-1977); Maria Antonia (1929-1991), Isabel (1931) and Maria Alfonso (1936).

One brother, Archduke Anton, was the first husband of Princess Ileana of Roumania.
