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

Bigger here!

Glad you like them Jen!!!  :) A pair new, well these are close ups from old photos of the Habsburg family -with very interesting portraits on the background I must say!-, I expect to see them in color and better quality one day. I expect they still exist -I know many stuff was destroyed during the World Wars-... possibly the Habsburg family still owns them.

What a find!! I really hope those turn up in better quality. There could be a chance that the Habsburg family own them.

Hi folks!

I d like to know which book of Robert Massie has this image mislabeled as "Empress Elisabeth in her deathbed". We all know its an scene from Elisabeth´s first film (1921)

Here s the video

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wbRg7ZzBWvQ&playnext=1&list=PL2D6EE728D323C952&feature=results_video

The image




The questions is because a girl on D.A has this image as stock image on her page. I kindly corrected her saying it wasnt Sissi, but an scene of a movie. She had a trainwreck and send me to confront Robert Massie because in HIS book this image appeared as the real empress in her deathbed (even tho i sent her a link of the video).

Here the lil argument (from her side cause i never wanted to start it)

So , now im curious to know which book of Massie has such a mistake (and if that mostake, nowadays, have an erratum). Thanks in advanced!

I would suggest to this girl, that women in 1898 did NOT wear dark eye shadow....... ::) I would not waste time convincing her to the authenticity of this well known 'image'.

i wont do it anymore since she s so stubborn and rude , but im curious about what she said about Robert Massie. I cant believe he made such a mistake labeling that image as the real Kaiserin Elisabeth in her deathbed 0_o

Hola!

The book is "The last Courts of Europe. A Royal Family Album 1860-1914". But Robert Massie only wrote the introduction. The picture research and descriptions are by Jeffrey Finestone.

THe photo is spread in pages 88-89, and the description says "Empress Elisabeth on her deathbed, 10 September 1898. She was assassinated at Geneva while boarding a boat - stabbed in the chest, she nevertheless continued walking but collapsed some moments later".

The photo was reproduced by permission of Roger Violet, Paris.

I hope this helps ;-)

If this mistake is in a book I now can understand why it frequently appears in some sites where people firmly believe that the woman is actually the Empress in her deathbed :-/

Happy 175th Birthday for the Empress Sissi!!

Very, very pretty collage! :) A tremendously interesting and beautiful woman was born 175 years ago today, and may she rest in peace!

Funny how she was indeed very slim however her dresses during the 1850s to early 1870 made her look curvy! lol
