Gisela did look better as she got older ( unusual!!), although she was a lovely child! Her mother was such a celebrated beauty, so obviously some of of it carried over to her. Thanks for the pictures of her especially that one of in the white dress! I am so glad I revived this thread just because I saw these pictures. Was Gisela ever considered much of a beauty? I think she was, although it was her mother's beauty that was so celebrated.
