"Miramar" was the Archduke Maximilian von Habsburg's residence in the Italian seaport of Trieste, then a part of the Austrian Empire.

It was here that Maximilian received the Mexican Delegation, a group of conservative Mexicans who offered him the throne of Mexico and thus began the tragedy of Mexico's Second Empire.
