SUBALBUM:  Elisabeth of Austria, Queen of France

The French and Austrian monarchies have a history of intermarriage. France has one Austrian border today, but had another (about where modern Belgium is) then, until the Napoleonic wars, and third border with a Habsburg realm, Spain.

This alliance worked out somewhat better than the Franco-Habsbug alliance that ended in 1789.
