Hotel named after Archduchess Stéphanie of Belgium

    Princess Stéphanie Clotilde Louise Herminie Marie Charlotte of Belgium (b. Brussels, Belgium, 1864 – d. 1945, Pannonhalma, Kingdom of Hungary) was a Belgian princess who became Crown Princess of Austria through marriage to Crown Prince Rudolf, heir to the throne of the Austro-Hungarian Empire. In 1900, Stéphanie married again to Count Elemér Lónyay de Nagy-Lónya et Vásáros-Namény, a Hungarian nobleman of lower rank. For this, she was excluded from the House of Austria-Hungary. The arrival of the Red Army in April 1945 at the end of the war forced Stéphanie and her husband to leave their residence and take refuge in the Pannonhalma Archabbey in Hungary. Stéphanie died of a stroke in the abbey later that same year.
