The Habsburgs / Re: Empress Elisabeth, Part V.

How wealthy was the Empress family in Bavaria? Also, did her "pedigree" seemed enough for the Austrian Court?

Bear in mind that at that time TB was considered highly infectious and that is one reason why most 'ordinary' sufferers were sent to sanatoria for treatment.

In fact, it's rather more complicated than that. The bacillus spreads quite easily, but a person in good physical health with a strong immune system will develop antibodies without developing 'active TB'. There was quite a lot of TB in earlier generations of my family, and I have the antibodies, but never a sign of actual TB.

My father's much older half-brother (over 20 years between them), got TB in the 1930s and died from it aged 26. One of the concerns was apparently that he was likely to infect my father ands his sister (aged 6 and 4). So not surprising that the rest of the family stayed away from poor Georgi.


Indeed. He must have felt alone staying so much time away from his family

Did George ever get to meet Alix?

Is this book available somewhere for free?

Thank you very much!

Anyone knows who are  the children with the Imperial Children in those photos? :

QV stated that being the Queen of England was, in term of status, the biggest thing in the world. I think she was a little naive on this, considering Britain was only a constitutional monarchy and there were, at the time, monarchs with REAL power and wealth available. So, if Alix was in search for status, Victoria's choice for Eddy, really wasn't the best.

Sissi bavarian family posessed any family connection to the romanovs?

From the portraits, it seems to me that Nicholas, George & Michael had blue eyes and Xenia and Olga brown ones.

Thank You !

Thank you for the replies! I always thought that GD George had blue eyes like his brothers.
