Emperor Joseph II and Archduchesses Maria Anna and Maria Elisabeth by Joseph Haunzinger (Kunsthistorisches Museum, Wien)

Joseph II was the musical Emperor in the play and movie Amadeus. The Emperor and Archduchesses were children of Empress Maria Theresia. Archduchess Maria Anna was deformed and never married and, like Maria Elisabeth, became an Abbess.

The Archduchesses straight but lofty coiffures date this to the later 1770s or 1780.
