Irene, Archduke Franz Ferdinand (1863-1914) and his wife Sophia (1868-1914) had three children:


Sophie (Princess Sophie of Hohenberg)
born 24 July 1901 at Konopischt (Konopiste) Palace in Bohemia
died 27 October 1990 in Thannhausen, Styria, Austria
married 8 September 1920 to Count Friedrich von Nostitz-Rieneck (who died in 1973 in Graz, Austria)

Maximilian (Duke Maximilian of Hohenberg)
born 28 September 1902 in Vienna
died 8 January 1962 in Vienna
married 16 November 1926 to Countess Elisabetha von Waldburg zu Wolfegg und Waldsee (who died in 1993 in Salzburg, Austria)

Ernst (Prince Ernst von Hohenberg)
born 27 May 1904 at Konopischt (Konopiste) Palace in Bohemia
died 5 March 1954 in Graz, Styria, Austria
married 25 May 1936 to Marie-Thérèse Wood (who died in 1985 in Radmer, Styria, Austria)


If Archduke Franz Ferdinand and his wife Sophia were your great-grandparents, then one of the above three couples must have been your grandparents.

If one of the above three couples were your grandparents, then one of the following 12 children would have had to have been either your father or your mother:


Sophie and Friedrich had four children:

Count Erwein von Nostitz-Rieneck (1921-1949)
Count Franz von Nostitz-Rieneck (1923-1945)
Count Aloys von Nostitz-Rieneck (1925-2003) -- 4 children born between 1963 and 1970
Countess Sophie von Nostitz Rieneck, married name von Gudenus (1929-still living) -- 4 children born between 1954 and 1960


Maximilian and Elisabetha had six children:

Duke Franz Ferdinand von Hohenberg (1927-1977) -- 2 children born 1958 and 1960
Duke Georg Friedrich von Hohenberg (1929-still living) -- 3 children born between 1961 and 1970
Prince Albrecht von Hohenberg (1931-still living) -- 4 children born between 1963 and 1969
Prince Johannes von Hohenberg (1933-still living) -- 4 children born between 1970 and 1976
Prince Peter von Hohenberg (1936-still living) -- 2 children born 1970 and 1972
Prince Gerhard von Hohenberg (1941-still living)


Ernst and Marie-Thérèse had two children:

Prince Franz Ferdinand von Hohenberg (1937-1978) -- 1 child born 1969
Prince Ernst von Hohenberg (1944-still living) -- 1 child born 1974


So the big question now, Irene, is this: Which of the above-listed 12 people was your father or your mother?
