Where is messina ?

Messina (Missina in sicilian) is the third largest city  on the Island of Sicily, located near the North East corner, at the Strait of Messina, opposite Reggio di Calabria.

He looks really portly even though he was rumoured to be good looking when he was a young man.

Portrait of Ferdinando II as young man, sorry for the small size.

Archduchess Maria Immakulata, daughter of Ferdinando II. She had such a childish face.

It was announced today that Pope Francis gave beatification approval for Queen Maria Christina. Francis approved the miracles attributed to MC, as well as another woman, Maria Bolognesi. Her beatification process was opened in 1859 and she was m made venerable 13 years later.

Don't think even Pope Francis can make "bomba" a saint...

Maria Luisa, Countess of Bardi

Back to Maria Luisa, Countess of Bardi. Yesterday I came across the English Wikipedia article of Maria Luisa that refers to a book written by Giovanni Spillmann in 1875.

It is told that Henri and Maria Luisa spent their honeymoon in Egypt where Maria Luisa was affected with a fever. She was taken to the French town of Cauterets where she had to take sulphur baths. She was also brought to Lourdes where she was emmersed into the holy water. Finally when her doctors said that there was no hope for her anymore, she was brought to Pau where she died on 23 February 1874.

Has anyone of you collected some more information about Maria Luisa? Does anyone know Spillmann's book?

die weiten weissen Schwingen,
Und kehr' ins Feenreich nach Haus -
Nichts soll mich wieder bringen.
