I was doing a search and I found this portrait labeled as Princess Gisela of Bavaria by Kaulbach 1889. I think that the portrait is beautiful indeed but I'm not sure that the woman portrayed on it is really Gisela.
Click here!

Won't be surprised if it is simply mislabeled.

It is beautiful but doesn't look a bit like Gisela.  ???
I love that very young Gisela painting that Mandie posted...my favorite of her too.  ;)

Gisela and her Bavarian family, love this detail of the portrait of the dead King Ludwig II on the table!

I have a rather odd question:  Were Archduchess Gisela and her husband Prince Leopold cremated when they died?  As they were Catholic and the church was rather against such things at that time I was just wondering since they are buried in the colombarium of St. Micheal's Church, Munich.

There are also urns in the columbarium that just contain the heart of a deceased person. But I don't know if that's what happened to Gisela and Leopold.

A new book comes out this year:

Sisi's Kinder: Leben im Schatten einer exzentrischen Mutter










See: http://www.amazon.de/Sisis-Kinder-Schatten-exzentrischen-Mutter/dp/3218008255/ref=wl_it_dp_o?ie=UTF8&coliid=I2H2T5BECOAFDI&colid=3A6MPUNPO8JRM

Verlagstext:

Kind von Kaiserin Elisabeth zu sein, war ein schweres Los: Sie war exzentrisch, überspannt, eine faszinierende, romantische Figur.
Sie hasste das Leben am kaiserlichen Hof, suchte ihr Heil in der Flucht, geißelte ihren Körper, um ewig jung und schön zu bleiben …
Was bedeutet es, eine solche Mutter zu haben?
pannend und mit feinem psychologischem Gespür erzählt Hanne Egghardt das Leben der vier Kinder im Schatten der Kaiserin:
Sophie, die im Alter von zwei Jahren starb, Gisela, Rudolf und Marie Valerie.
Gisela und Kronprinz Rudolf wurden von ihrer Mutter ignoriert und abgelehnt, Marie Valerie hingegen vergöttert und verzärtelt.
Beide Töchter widmeten ihr Leben später der Wohltätigkeit, Gisela in München, verheiratet mit Prinz Leopold von Bayern, Marie Valerie mit Erzherzog Franz Salvator, der sie jedoch ungeniert betrog. Kronprinz Rudolf hingegen fand seinen Platz im Leben nicht. Er versank in Depressionen – bis zu seinem Freitod mit Baronesse Mary Vetsera in Mayerling. Die Geschichte der unglücklichen Kaiserin Elisabeth und ihrer Kinder, die Hanne Egghardt hier erzählt, berührt und lässt niemanden kalt.

---


I hope for more informations of Gisela, I have many books on Rudolf and Marie Valeries Diary, but infos of Gisela are rare, although she outlived all her siblings and died 1932.

The title is translated:

Sisi's children: Life in the shadow of an eccentric mother


The text:

Being s child of Empress Elisabeth was a hard life, she was eccentric, exaggerated, a fascinating, romantic figure.
She hated life at the imperial court, tried her luck in running away, lashed her body to stay forever young and beautiful ...
What does it mean to have such a mother?
Exciting and with fine psychological sense Hanne Egghardt tells the lives of four children in the shadow of the Empress:
Sophie, who died at the age of two years, Gisela, Rudolf and Marie Valerie.

Crown Prince Rudolf and Gisela have been ignored and rejected by her mother, Marie Valerie, however idolized and pampered.
Both daughters devoted their later lives to charity, Gisela in Munich, married to Prince Leopold of Bavaria, Marie Valerie married Archduke Franz Salvator, who openly cheated on her.
Crown Prince Rudolf, did not find his place in life. He sank into depression - until his suicide with Baroness Mary Vetsera in Mayerling.
The story of the unfortunate Empress Elisabeth and her children, Hannah Egghardt tells the touching story that leaves nobody cold.

Do you think the book is good, Marie Valerie?  :) Was the author able to balance facts with her own insights and suppositions? And how were the children affected (in a gist)?

The book is not yet out, so I can't say anything about it.
 
Amazon says the book is available in September 2011

But the topic "Sisi's children" is a good and interesting one, and I'm looking forward to it.

Just as I said I hope for more informations on Gisela, she is so underrated.

Marie Valerie as her mothers favourite and Rudolf with his tragic end, it seems Gisela is forgotten.

Their sister Sophie died as an infant, so there won't be much about her.
