Trent,

did you obtain John's permission to post nearly the entire text of his article ...if not, you cannot publish (and that is what a post is) a huge amount of text from an article without permission of the copyright holder ... and you didn't cite the source when you first started posting the text ... it gave the impression that you were the author ....

copyright is the life of the author plus 75 years. A few sentences here and there are permitted on fair use.  I do realize that you want to share the information - and the articles are super -- but it is not fair to the writer or to the publisher (who still sells back issues) to post nearly the entire text ...

I don't mean to harp on this, but it is really important to respect copyright  ... quotes here and there are permitted but not huge chunks of text ....

thanks

There indeed isn't much information on Elisabetta, although one wishes there were. I appreciated these things being posted. Elisabetta undoubtedly had her bad side, and her good side like many people. It is her bad side that perhaps dominated her, but it's nice to look at her in a different light. Her bad side certainly has dominated her reputation, and I don't know if she would have been all that nice to know.

I've written to Trentk80 and offered to remove his post. I just want to confirm I have the correct one and that he hasn't secured the author's permission. The author may well permit this if the material is used with proper attribution.

At Trentk80's request, I have deleted two posts due to possible copyright infringement issues.

For reference, the law does allow copyrighted works to be quoted, always with proper attribution, under the "fair use" provision of the law. Generally, something less than a paragraph is permissible.

I would also invite the copyright holder to contact the Alexander Palace website if he is interested in permitting some of the Princess' letters to be published here.

John Wimbles would not own the copyright to Elisabetha's letters.  I would expect that the copyright belongs to Elisabetha's heirs or the museum that has the letters.

I did enjoy reading her letters; it illuminates her, and makes you think of her a bit differently.

 Here what it says about Elisabeth in the book " The last romantic" :
     " While Marie ador her oldest son,she have dificultis to like her oldest daugher,Elisabeta.It wasn't the only one. Auntis and uncles, nanis and friends haave graet dificultis to like this enigmatic children,whom birth producced to her mother more fizical and psihic pain than other event in her younger life.
           As a child,Elisabeth was very beutiful,a pride for her mother.Retrayered and ansociable like a little girl, at puberty Eliabeth become very fat.
        When Elisabeth  turn 18, the Kaiser wanted to marry her  with one of his children. Marie was afraid that her daugher familiary with the liberty of Romania, it will be very hard to her to get used to the German court. But t the son of the Kaiser didn't like har.Marie wasn't surprised,as she tell to her mother:"Young men didn't like Elisabeth,is too inteligent and to quiet,is not enought happy,is somehow a live statue." The only time Elisabeth was entuziasm was  for clouths and juwls,wich she colection avid."
    Sorry if you don't understand but I tray to traduce it from Romanian.

Most likely, she was. She had no children and no spouse. Her family had little money in exile, and her ex husband's family was not terribly wealthy, either. At least, not wealthy enough to tranport her remains elsewhere and then bury her. The only thing that makes me a little less than certain is the slight possibility that her older brother may have made some provision for her. But, I doubt this - he was far too selfish (as was she) for this to be likely.

Elizabeth is buried in the crypt of the Hedinger Kirche, Sigmaringen with her Hohenzollern ancestors.
