Marie Karoline von Fuchs-Mollard

The beloved governess of the Empress Maria Theresa, whom she had buried in the Imperial Crypt. To quote:
A portrait of Countess Marie Karoline von Fuchs-Mollard, the Governess of Maria Theresa, done by Martin van Meytens. They had an extremely close relationship, with the Countess practically having raised her. When she died in 1754, Maria Theresa had her buried in the Imperial Crypt, and she is the only person buried there that was not a member of the Habsburg Family.
