Archduchess Maria Dorothea and Duke Phillipe d'Orléans

The photographer's name is in plain sight, but I cannot resolve the second part of the name, the part past "Koller." The couple wed in 1896 so this could be a wedding photo; she was 29 when she married.

Posted to the Alexander Palace Time Machine Discussion Forum by Rani on 11 October 2010. The image was very light so I fully darkened it and then, using Photoshop, evened out spotting in the upper background brought out by the darkening.
