Combined Photo of Crown Prince Rudolf (Rudolf  Franz Karl Josef) (1858-1889) Austria & his lover Baroness Marie “Mary” Alexandrine Vetsera (1871-1889) Austria by unknown photographer. Intially the deaths were ruled poison but In Jul 2015 Vetsera's letters of farewell to her mother & other family members were found in a safe deposit box in an Austrian bank.
