Recent Comments "Elizabeth, empress of Austria,"
I read this book because of recently reading 'Sisi: Empress On Her Own', a modern look at this lady. While the newer book has a more novel style, and is written from the Empress's point of view, it contains all the same details so I expect that Count Corti's work will have been source material. At the start the Count tells us that almost nothing has been published about Sisi, although copious written materials and witnesses exist. He sets out to build a portrait of this lady, one of the last Emp [...]
"Firmly resolved to live her own life and follow the desires of her own mind and heart"By sally tarbox on 8 January 2018Format: PaperbackFirst published in 1935, this is a very readable, fact-based account of Empress Elizabeth of Austria - something of a Princess Diana figure.After a free and easy childhood near Munich (she was a member of the Wittelsbach family), Elizabeth was just sixteen when she married Franz Josef of Austria. Life suddenly changed dramatically as a member of the Viennese co [...]
Quite a good biography of the Empress Elisabeth. But it's from the 1930s, when many people who had known the Empress and the people close to her were still alive, and Count Corti was very sympathetic to the Empress and (especially) the Emperor, to the extent that he paints a more positive image of them than really is just, and avoids saying much about uncomfortable things such as the Crown Prince Rudolf. Therefore it's best to read other books, too, if you want a more complete image of Elisabeth [...]
its been quite some time since i bought and read this one, but still to me is a must have for anyone interested in the period and the people - sissi more specificallythough it is dated and at times the author can be somewhat partial, he also had privileged access to sources and persons who had met the empress and her circle - especially some of her ladies in waiting - so just for that alone, it is worth the trouble of tackling the language and style of writing much has been written about sissi a [...]
Ein sehr interessantes Buch. Es ist ein gut Komplimente für die Biographie bei Brigitte Hamann über Sisi, weil es zusätzlich Informationen hat.Ich habe es in Spanische gelesen. Es hat ein paar falsches Daten, obwohl es wert es zu lesen.
