Margareta Elisabeth Sandhofer was born on September 10, 1968 in Innsbruck, Austria.
Her parents were Friedrich Josef Sandhofer and Elisabeth Erzherzogin von Habsburg, Archduchess of Austria.
Margareta Elisabeth Sandhofer is a direct descendant of Her Imperial and Royal Highness Ileana, Archduchess of Austria, Princess Royal of Hungary and Bohemia, Princess of Tuscany, Princess of Romania, Princess of Hohenzollern.
Princess Ileana of Romania was the youngest daughter of King Ferdinand I of Romania and Queen Marie. This basically makes Margareta Elisabeth Sandhofer a third-degree cousin of the queen.
This is why she is so far down on the line of succession – at present, I think she is something like 155, which isn’t even tracked on most official lists, as they tend to stop tracking past 100.
I think she goes by Elisabeth instead of her full name of “Margareta Elisabeth”.
She married Ernst Helmut Klaus Lux on June 20, 1992. When she married she became Margareta Elisabeth Lux. The couple had two children, both boys:
- Maurito Maria Ernst Lux (born 29 April 1999 in Vienna, Austria)
- Dorian Augustinius Maria Lux (born 12 May 2001 in Vienna, Austria)
