Empress Maria Theresa and Emperor Francis I had 16 children. Here is a short list of Marie Antoinette's Siblings
Palaces of Europe by country
While Austria was ruled by the holy roman emperor, a char ruled in Russia. Italy was divided into several small city-states and kingdoms where the Doge ruled Venice and a Queen resided in Parma. French was ruled by a lot of Louis', always fighting with the United Kingdom on the other side of the sea.
European Countries that still have a royal family today are Andorra Belgium, Denmark, Liechtenstein, Luxembourg, Monaco, Netherlands, Norway, Spain, Sweden and last but not least the United Kingdom. In most of these countries, the monarch has a mere ceremonial role these days.
All these royals left a wide variety of palaces and castles in almost all countries in Europe. Here are some of my favourites.
