_. Mária Erzsébet Ilona Anna Josefa Walpurga "Mausi" Lockwood, who died 15 August, 2019, aged 74, was a scion of the Eszterházy dynasty.

She was born at Budapest, 12 Nov, 1944, daughter of Jozsef Mária Dániel Kazmer Ferenc Rudolf László János Evangelista Eustachius Eszterhazy [1917-80], by his first wife Elisabeth Princess zu Windisch-Grätz, a relative of Princess Michael of Kent.
