Very much so ! It brings out the Hapsburg branch that was interested in Poland. Two of Wilhelm's sisters married Polish Princes (one being Radziwill) and a third married a commoner. The Red Prince  here was also gay....

'The Red Prince' is in the library, I think, so I must remember to order it.

One of the most interesting book on a Hapsburg to come out in awhile.

Hi,

I'm searching the Letters between Empress Maria Theresian and her daughter, the Dauphine and later Queen Marie Antoinette between 1770 and 1780  in english.

I would be very happy if someone can help me!

Thx

Yes the letters were translated and published in English. I have seen it on Amazon and some second hard bookstores.

Here's one  link I found online and can be downloaded free on Count Mercy in Paris... There are extracts of letters in here, together with background information on what had happened. Hope this helps a bit... enjoy!

I think Olivier Bernier edited an edition. I bought that one for my collection.

The best collection of Marie Antoinette's letters that I have come across to date was written in French: Evelyne Lever's Marie Antoinette: Correspondance (1770 - 1793).  It includes letters written by Maria Theresa and the Comte de Mercy as well as annotations by the erudite and astute Lever.  Lever also wrote a biography of Marie Antoinette which contains quotes from the letters and has been translated into English.
