Wikipedia, July 29, 2014 (Carlota of Mexico; birth name: Charlotte of Belgium (Marie Charlotte Amélie Augustine Victoire Clémentine Léopoldine); born 7 June 1840 in Laeken, Brussels; died 19 January 1927 in Meise, Belgium; empress consort of Emperor Maximilian I of Mexico, the former Archduke of Austria. She was first cousin to both Queen Victoria and her husband, Prince Albert, as well as Ferdinand II of Portugal. She belonged to the House of Saxe-Coburg and Gotha. As Empress, she took the name of Carlota. In a desperate attempt to save her husband's throne, Carlota returned to Europe, seeking assistance for her husband in Paris, Vienna, and finally in Rome from Pope Pius IX. Her efforts failed; she manifested symptoms of paranoia, suffered a profound cognitive and emotional collapse, and never returned to Mexico)
