Thanks MV!

Agree, we don´t know much about Giselas personality, besides that she was a "simple housewife". But she was the daughter of Empress Elisabeth and Franz Joseph. I don´t think that she was that average. And it´s always shocking for me how young she was when she married and the whole Leopold-Amalie-Max Emanuel story.

Thank you, Marie Valerie!

Sorry, I wasn't able to read the first part of your post, that the book is still due to come out.  I should pay more attention!  :)

As my German is very poor (still trying to improve my reading skills on it), I'd appreciate any future posts you may wish to make on the book. I like all 3 children, and I concur with what you said that Gisela deserves to be covered more extensively.

Yes. Sisi looked at the child critically and wrote "she was healthy and ugly... just like Gisela !"...

Taken approx. 1888-1890.
