She exercised great influence over her husband and was blamed for Charles's letters to her brother, Sixtus of Bourbon-Parma, during World War I that corroborated French claims to Alsace-Lorraine. She was also blamed for Charles's attempts to regain his throne after the war. After her husband's death (1922), Zita brought up her large family in Belgium.
