Later, Leopold met Constanze Geiger, a common woman. She bore him a son, cried Franz in Vienna on 12 October 1860. Leopold an Constanze mairit sax month later, on 23 Aprile 1861. Immediately, he recognised his son, wha wis created Freiherr von Ruttenstein on 24 Julie 1862. The same day, Constanze wis created Freifrau von Ruttenstein in her own right.
