Countess Elisabeth Maria Dobržensky de Dobrženicz (Czech: hraběnka Alžběta Dobřenská z Dobřenic; 7 December 1875 - 11 June 1951) was the daughter of Johan-Wenzel (Jan Václav), Count Dobržensky de Dobrženicz and his wife, Countess Elisabeth Kottulinsky, Baroness de Kottulin et Krzižkowitz.[1]

She had three elder brothers Jan, Otokar and Jaroslav and a younger brother named Karl Kunata (who became Count Kottulinský in Austria in 1905 and in 1912 married Countess Maria Theresia von Meran, member of a morganatic branch of the House of Habsburg-Lorraine).[1][2]

Elisabeth married Pedro de Alcântara, Prince of Grão Para on 14 November 1908 at Versailles, who had previously renounced his hereditary claim to the crown of Brazil because she was not of royal birth.[1][2] They had five children:[1]

Elisabeth died on 11 June 1951 at the age of 75. She was buried with Pedro.
