Princess Sophie of Hohenberg (German: Sophie Fürstin von Hohenberg, fully Sophie Marie Franziska Antonia Ignatia Alberta von Hohenberg, 24 July 1901, Konopiště – 27 October 1990, Thannhausen) was the only daughter of Archduke Franz Ferdinand of Austria and his morganatic wife Sophie, Duchess of Hohenberg.

Following the assassination of her parents, Sophie and her two surviving brothers, Maximilian and Ernst, were taken in by their father's close friend and shooting partner Prince Jaroslav von Thun und Hohenstein.

In late 1918, their properties in Czechoslovakia including Konopiště and Chlumec nad Cidlinou were confiscated. The children moved to Vienna and Schloß Artstetten. But in 1938, following the Anschluss they were arrested and deported to Dachau concentration camp where they spent the next seven years of their lives.[citation needed]

Sophie married Count Friedrich von Nostitz-Rieneck (1891–1973), son of Count Erwein Felix von Nostitz-Rieneck and Countess Amalia von Podstatzky-Lichtenstein on 8 September 1920; they had four children:

 Count Erwein Maximilian Franz Peter Paul Hubertus Konrad Maria von Nostitz-Rieneck (1921–1949); died in a Soviet POW camp
 Count Franz von Assisi Friedrich Ernst Leopold Josef Maria von Nostitz-Rieneck (1923–1945); killed on the Eastern Front
 Count Aloys Karl Joseph Maria von Nostitz-Rieneck (1925–2003) married 1962 Countess Theresia von Waldburg-Zeil (b. 1931)
 Countess Sophie Amalia Theresia Quirinia Henriette Lucretia Magdalena Maria Ignatia von Nostitz-Rieneck (born 1929) married 1953 Baron Ernst von Gudenus (1916–1972)

She lived to be 89 years old, dying in October 1990, and outliving both of her younger siblings.

  • London Bird - The Hawk
    More info
    Hawks have the power to see with 20/20 clear vision. These birds of prey use the power of focus to take the lead -when the time is right. For our latest collection we've been inspired by the Renaissance jewellers. With the arrival of Baroque pearls to Europe in the 15th century a new style of jewellery was born:The Sculptural Pendant. When looking at each unique pearl our imaginations ran wild transforming them into birds and other animals. As no two pearls are alike in shape, each pendant has to be sculpted by hand, to fit the pearl. This means every pendant is unique. White Baroque freshwater pearl pendant with natural black and white sapphires (body), black sapphires (eyes). Yellow gold and rose gold, plated on sterling silver. Comes on a 30’’ sterling silver chain. Handcrafted in Italy Sterling Silver.
