Not only by the net, everywhere. Sadly , her in latin america, buy books, in special about royalty is HIGHLY expensive, and even more for students like us.

I think there are ways of getting information.l Saw Spanish version of books of Sisi. Libraries are usually a good source.

Lets go back to the discussion.

The same goes for Argentina. Books on royalty are really rare. I consider myself very lucky whenever I find a royalty book...

I think if the interests are stronger in South America maybe the book stores will sell more royalty books.

Its even hard to find books about Royalty (expt the Brittish) and old royals in America in bookstores.  Here only easily you can find books about Queen Elizabeth II, her son and grandsons, her late and x-daughter in law Diana the Princess of Wales, whom I don't care for.

Use bookstores are good to find about some old royals, but not so much.

Well. They do have some if it famous authors like Hugo Vickers. The ones on the daughters & grandaughters of Queen Victoria isalso available in Borders & Barnes & Noble. Britian has more selection are far as Royalty books go.

question are there any photo albums?

Martha Schad: Bayerns Königshaus. Die Familiengeschichte der Wittelsbacher in Bildern.
(Translation: The Royal House of Bavaria. The story of their family in pictures.)

Hella and Eugen von Bayern: Die Wittelsbacher und ihre Hunde.
(Translation: The Wittelsbachs and their dogs.)

The biography about Marie Gabrielle in Bavaria by Mr. Huber also contains a lot of pictures as well as the biography about Antonia of Luxemburg by Jean-Louis Schlim.

And there is the famous "Fanilienalbum von Kaiser FJ und Elisabeth" by Gabriele Praschl-Bichler ... but it's really hard to get.


There is also Sisis Familienalbum by Werner Bokelberg (ed.). One section is about the Wittelsbach relations. The photos are very small, and some of the captions are incorrect, but it's nevertheless a nice little book. Unfortuantely, it is also out of print and not easy to find.

When I bought this book years ago, most of the cdvs were unknown to me. But meanwhile a lot of them were scaned and shown in all those discussion boards about Elisabeth and her family. I think you would be able to find 70% of the pictures online today.
Ich aber breite trauernd aus
die weiten weissen Schwingen,
Und kehr' ins Feenreich nach Haus -
Nichts soll mich wieder bringen.

indeed. It was the 30% that makes people want to get them.
