Thanks Marie. Was he ill for long time? I have the impression his illness was rather short and his death almost unexpected.

He had been ill for quite a while, but neither his family nor the people in Regensburg would have expected his sudden death.

I didn't know that photograph either until it was shown in a report about Empress Elisabeth about three weeks ago.

A report about Elisabeth broadcasted by the Austrian television. It was about her childhood, her thin body, her journeys, the circumstances of her death, etc. Really interesting. If you haven't seen it, you can order the DVD on http://shop.orf.at/1/index.tmpl?shop=home&seite=home.

Sounds interesting. Is the DVD worth buying ? Does it bring new elements about Kaiserin Elisabeth or just the same old theories we all have read about ? Are there any other unknown pics like the one Veronika posted ?

In my opinion, this report was really impressive. There is a German and an English version on the DVD. Peter Prinz von Altenburg, a grandson of Archduchess Marie Valérie, talked about Elisabeth and how she is seen in the family. A historian had a look at the medicine Elisabeth had to take. Because of this he was able to find out interesting things about her health. Two other men reconstructed the day of Elisabeth's death. They went along the same streets, visited the room at the hotel Beau Rivage where she died, etc. All in all, it was the goal of the report to show the human being Elisabeth behind the mask of Sissi, which is very difficult of course.

A historian form Munich talked at Possenhofen about Elisabeth's childhood, her parents and siblings. There were some pictures I've never seen before.

That's is true! This pictures has been catches of the dvd   "Elisabeth Enigma of the Empress".

I drew these images directly from the DVD to make a criticism there on my French forum.

I've already given you the link to the website of the ORF (= Austrian televison) shop. Here it is again: http://shop.orf.at/1/index.tmpl?shop=home&seite=home On this site you can see a picture of the DVD. Then just follow the links.
