Royal Profile: Countess Margherita von und zu Arco-Zinneberg

Countess Margherita Ginevra Maria von und zu Arco-Zinneberg was born 18 June 1983 as the second of six daughters of Archduchess Maria-Beatrice of Austria-Este and Count Riprand of Arco-Zinneberg {Source}. Her one elder sister and four younger sisters are{Source}:

  4. Countess Marie Gabrielle Hillary von und zu Arco-Zinneberg (1992)
  5. Countess Giorgiana Astrid Maria von und zu Arco-Zinneberg (1997)
It's likely she had a worldly education, having been raised in Germany and the United States. It's also fairly likely that she has lived some-what of a normal life. 

She is a niece of Princess Astrid of Belgium, The Archduchess of Austria-Este & Prince Lorenz of Belgium, The Archduke of Austria-Este.

 She is named:
  • Margherita: for her maternal grandmother
  • Ginevra: the italian form of Juniper, meaning Guinevere (Guenièvre in French), a variant Old French spelling of Gwenhwyfar, which in Welsh is a combination of the word gwen (mod. gwyn) which means "white" or "fair" and hwyfar which means a "spirit" or "fairy".
  • Maria: for her paternal grandmother, Countess Maria Theresia von und zu Arco-Zinneberg
