Crown Princess Louisa loses archducal titles

January 28, 1903

Emperor Franz Josef of Austria has stripped the Crown Princess of Saxony of her archducal titles, styles and prerogatives. This act has been done with the approval of the Crown Princess' father, the Grand Duke of Tuscany, and her father-in-law, the King of Saxony.
The former Archduchess Louisa of Austria is estranged from her husband, the Crown Prince of Saxony. She fled the marital home with her children's tutor, Monsieur Giron.
The Emperor's act is without parallel in the Imperial House, and is considered as a drastic measure.
