Koháry was an ancient Hungarian noble family[1] with seats at Csábrág and Szitnya, now Čabraď and Sitno Castle and the palace of Svätý Anton within Slovakia. The Kohárys belonged among the magnates of Hungary. Their holdings were calculated to be around 150.000 hectares making Princess Maria Antonia Koháry de Csábrág at the time of her marriage to Prince Ferdinand of Saxe-Coburg and Gotha one the richest heiresses in Europe.

Prince Koháry

On the 15th of November 1815, the head of the house, the then imperial chancellor Ferenc József (1760–1826), was made Fürst Koháry (Prince Koháry)[2] by Emperor Francis I of Austria. At the death of Ferenc József, his only surviving child, a daughter named Mária Antónia (1797–1862), was proclaimed heiress of the name (fíúsított). When she married in 1816 (January 2), her husband Prince Ferdinand of Saxe-Coburg and Gotha took the name Saxe-Coburg-Gotha-Koháry. Among the descendants of Mária Antónia and Ferdinand are the last emperor of Austria (Charles I), the last three kings of Portugal (Luis I, Carlos I, Manoel II), and the last three kings of Bulgaria (Ferdinand I, Boris III, Simeon II).
