We have already talked about this very book on the thread about the upcoming book 2009, but this book certainly deserves it's own thread. On and .de it is still labeled as "not yet available" - any informations about this?

The Wittlesbachs / Duke Franz Joseph in Bavaria (1888-1912)

Hello there,

as there is no thread on this member of the ducal Wittelsbachs, I thought I could start one as I would like to know more about him.  :) He was the youngest son of Duke Carl Theodor in Bavaria and his second wife Duchess Marie José, née Infanta of Portugal, born in 1888 and was the brother of Queen Elisabeth of Belgium and Princess Marie Gabrielle of Bavaria. Franz Joseph died of polio (?) in 1912, the very same year as his sisters Marie Gabrielle and Amélie, which makes this year quite an "annus horriblis" for the Wittelsbach Family...

Any info on Franz Joseph out there?


Hi there,

which was your best book deal ever? Did you ever get an usually very expensive and rare book for a bargain price?
My best book deals were Michael of Greece´s "Nicholas and Alexandra: The Family Albums" for $40, "Mon album de famille" by the same author for $35 and "Das Familienalbum von Kaiser Franz Joseph und Elisabeth" by Praschl-Bichler for $60.

Now to you! :)


I´d like to konw if the memoirs of Countess Marie Kleinmichel ("Memoirs of a shipwrecked world") are any good?


This book was sold on ebay one month ago and it looks so interesting:

It was printed in Russia in 2004 and is written in Russian and English.
Now the most important question: Does anybody know if one can get this book somewhere?

The Wittlesbachs / Prince Heinrich of Bavaria (1884-1916)

I am interested in Prince Heinrrich of Bavaria (1884-1916), the son of Prince Arnulf and his wife Princess Therese, a born Princess v.u.z. Liechtenstein. I would like to learn more about his character etc. The only things I have read about him was that 1) his aunt Gisela wanted him to marry her niece Archduchess Elisabeth and  2) that he was killed in action in 1916 in Eastern front (?).
Of course it would also be nice to illustrate this thread with pictures. :D


I have been searching for quite a while to find some of the books written by Jacques Ferrand, but sadly all my searches failed. :'( Maybe somebody knows where one can get his books? Many thanks. :)
