Andrew Sinclair:
Death by Fame: A Life of Elisabeth, Empress of Austria - gebunden oder broschiert

ISBN: 0312198523

[SR: 4180422], Gebundene Ausgabe, [EAN: 9780312198527], St Martin's Press, St Martin's Press, Book, [PU: St Martin's Press], St Martin's Press, She was the Princess Diana of her day: beautiful, anorexic, trapped in an unhappy marriage and a stifling court routine from which she escaped through constant traveling and charity defiantly lavished on those least acceptable to her in-laws (in this case, the Hungarians and the Irish). But Empress Elisabeth of Austria (1837-98) was a Victorian celebrity, not a contemporary one, and though her biographer strives mightily to equate her assassination by an Italian anarchist with Diana's fatal accident while in flight from the paparazzi, "death by fame" is not a very accurate title. Nor do all historians accept Sinclair's contention that Elisabeth's husband, Hapsburg emperor Franz Joseph, infected her with a venereal disease that made him guiltily willing to indulge her every whim. He may simply have loved her despite her obvious mental instability and his equally open infidelities. Whatever its factual wobbles, Sinclair's overheated biography is nonetheless good, tawdry fun for its gossipy portrait of the quarrelsome, overbred, and intermarried royalty of Europe on the eve of its final eclipse. Romantic and kind-hearted--but also hysterically restless and incapable of sustained devotion to anything but horseback riding and obsessive physical exercise--Elisabeth was a fitting empress for the enervated fin de siècle. --Wendy Smith, 56833011, Historisch, 56797011, Biografien & Erinnerungen, 54071011, Genres, 52044011, Fremdsprachige Bücher, 56861011, Königshaus, 56858011, Politiker & Persönlichkeiten, 56797011, Biografien & Erinnerungen, 54071011, Genres, 52044011, Fremdsprachige Bücher, 1316991031, Frauen, 1316987031, Spezifische Gruppen, 56797011, Biografien & Erinnerungen, 54071011, Genres, 52044011, Fremdsprachige Bücher

ID: 922870

In 1898 the beautiful Empress Elisabeth of Austria-Hungary, wife of the Emperor Franz-Josef, was stabbed to death by a madman. Her murder marked the end of a life spent wandering the globe in a kind of self-imposed exile from hollow royal duties and a profoundly unhappy marriage. It was a life whose echo could be heard in that of another princess whose own arranged royal mismatch would end in tragedy nearly a century later.
