Countess Mary von Habsburg-Lothringen (née Mary Nyanut Ring Machar; born 1 July 1969) is a Sudanese woman who married into the House of Habsburg-Lorraine.


Habsburg was born on 1 July 1969 in Wau, Sudan (present-day South Sudan).

On 28 August 1999 she married Count Ferdinand Leopold Joseph von Habsburg-Lothringen in Nairobi, Kenya.[1][2] Their marriage was seen as controversial due to her socio-economic class and race. Otto von Habsburg, then head of the House of Habsburg-Lorraine, gave the couple his blessing.[3][4] Her husband is a son of Archduke Géza of Austria and a maternal grandson of Frederick Augustus III of Saxony.[5][6]

She and her husband have four children:

  • Luisa Aluel von Habsburg (born 2000)
  • László Rum von Habsburg (born 2002)
  • Gisela Aluk von Habsburg (born 2004)
  • Mátyás Malith von Habsburg (born 2009)
