Maximilian I of Mexico (6 July 1832 -- 19 June 1867; born Archduke Ferdinand Maximilian Joseph of Austria) was a member of the Imperial House of Habsburg-Lorraine. After a distinguished career in the Austrian Navy, he was proclaimed Emperor of Mexico on 10 April 1864 during the Second Mexican Empire with the backing of Napoleon III of France and a group of Mexican monarchists. Many foreign governments, including that of the United States, refused to recognize his government. This helped to ensure the success of Liberal forces led by Benito Juárez, and Maximilian was executed, after capture by the Liberals, in 1867.
In Mexico, he and his consort are known as Maximiliano and Carlota.
Charlotte of Belgium (Princess Marie Charlotte Amélie Augustine Victoire Clémentine Léopoldine of Belgium), (7 June 1840 -- 19 January 1927) is remembered today as Carlota of Mexico as empress consort of Emperor Maximilian I of Mexico, ex-Archduke of Austria.
