Oh a beautiful portrait of Victoire!!

It shows her incredible resemblance to the Comte d'Eu.

Why was Elisabeth always so harsh to her little sister? After the Ludwig story, she blamed Sophie many years later for Ludwigs frame of mind. And the Glaser story made Elisabeth again furios. After all her criticism against the court and public, she was in reality small-minded. Or does anyone know why she was so to Sophie??

Well...Sisi was not known to be partial. But the Dr. Glaser incident was really crossing the line. It put Sophie in par with Louise of Belgium, whom all thought was silly.

I haven't heard nothing like this :-0 About the case of Ludwig I think that Sissi had not right to blame Sophie about nothing, finally she wasn't responsable of his madness. about the second situation perhaps was a bit easy to understand because it was a real scandal for the victorian age, but in any case she wouldn't be as hard as she was with her sister

It's Sch÷nbrunn.
Ich aber breite trauernd aus
die weiten weissen Schwingen,
Und kehr' ins Feenreich nach Haus -
Nichts soll mich wieder bringen.

I know, but you wrote "Schornburnn" which might confuse other members of this forum. Besides it is possible to write "oe" instead of "÷".

Sophie's hair is amazing!

Would anyone know if there is a biography of Sophie available in English?

An interesting link regarding the Fire:
