The crown looks like an Austro-Hungarian arch-ducal bonnet or coronet
(or possibly the coronet of a Prince of the Holy Roman Empire), would there
be a historical link to such a title?

The coronet comes from the Coat of Arms of the Radziwill clan, very prominent in the history of Poland and Lithuania. Since 1515 the Radziwill family were elevated to Reichsfürsten of the Holy Roman Empire. In modern times, they are known due to their family's connection to the Kennedy clan (Princess Lee Radziwill) and to my family as well (which is not so well known or publicized fact).
