Is that Eugene's wife?

A cousin, actually. One of her daughters married a prince of Hohenzollern-Sigmaringen and was ancestress to the kings of Romania. Another married the Duke of Hamilton. The princes of Monaco are descended from that one. There was another daughter who married the last of the Vasas.
Rumor had it that she might have been the mother of Kaspar Hauser, and a DNA test seems to have shown it possible.
