My past of  Marie Larisch

MGS Press - 255 p.

EUR 20.50

It 's always hard to dig deep into the personality of an historical character, especially if equipped with an introverted nature and elusive as that of the Empress Elizabeth of Austria, all better known as Sissi. Today, the already generous literature tells us about her, you add a title expected to be published by year MGS Press, a publishing house specializing in Trieste biographies and history. It is in fact the diary that her niece of the Empress, Maria Larisch, wrote after the death of the august aunt in order to justify its awkward position against the imperial family, who accused her of having an active role in the tragedy of Mayerling , where he was killed the Archduke Rudolph, ere to the throne and son of the Empress. Though replete with inaccuracies unmasked the chronicle of events, the diary of Marie Larisch is a complex mosaic tile fundamental of which draws the last, tragic years of an ancient dynasty. In addition it adds the chronicle of a life as adventurous few: favorite niece of the Empress of the world's greatest death in poverty.

from site :

It is an autobiography by Stephanie of Belgium, the unhappy wife of Archduke Rudolf of Hapsburg. The memoirs give a voice to the third star, or victim, dell'irrisolto "historical mystery" of Mayerling. Stephanie of Saxe Coburg Gotha, daughter of King Leopold II of Belgium, recounts his childhood spent among the coldness of the parents and the rigors of a court anticipates that the rigid discipline of the Vienna Hofburg, remembers the sad marriage to the heir of Francis Joseph, union intended for convenience and poorly accepted by both.

As I was Empress

Gabriella Ziani


From site: non fui Imperatrice&product_id=59

On the morning of January 30, 1889 sensational news shakes the Chancelleries and the Royal Houses of Europe. The Austrian Crown Prince Rudolph of Hapsburg , was found dead in the hunting lodge at Mayerling , a few kilometers from Vienna. His body lies beside that of a little girl in her teens , Baroness Mary Vetsera .
Thus began one of the most intriguing mysteries of the late nineteenth century, a yellow , not to mention a spy story that continues to fascinate historians and reporters all over the world even today .
From the first hours , there are too many details that do not fit. Beginning with the awkward reaction of the government and the Court of Austria- Hungary , who first speak of a " stroke " and then an act of " sudden madness" that would bring the Archduke to kill the young and then to take his life with a gunshot . A classic example of a murder-suicide , then, at least in appearance.
But is this the truth? The restless Rodolfo is a victim of its existential torment and of an impossible love ? Or nothing to do with the strong political disputes that divide the prince for years by his father , Emperor Franz Joseph, and environments " clerical- feudal " ? Or the young Hapsburg is involved in some obscure international conspiracy that aims to upset the precarious geopolitical balance of the Old Continent ?
Amodeo and Cereghino reconstruct the events piece by piece , with the air of detectives of contemporary history , comparing situations, characters , documents and testimonies. And the news there . It thus appears that Rodolfo and Maria are victims of a murder committed by one or more assassins. Beyond a reasonable doubt. A full-blown crime , therefore , dictated by political reasons , if not geopolitical . Confirmation of this is above all the secret reports drawn up by Prince Heinrich von Reuss - Ambassador of the German Reich in Vienna - that reveal , inter alia, the investigation conducted by the Apostolic Nuncio Msgr. Luigi Galimberti in the days immediately following the murder .
But the highlight of the story are top secret telegrams written by Sir Augustus Paget, the British ambassador to the Court of Vienna. They were found by the authors in the fall of 2012, in the British National Archives in Kew Gardens , south of London. It is unpublished documents that are published here for the first time. By comparison , the dispatches of von Reuss and Paget offer a truth quite different from the official one. Finally plausible. For the first time , perhaps, since 1889.
Mayerling , Anatomy of a Murder is a work halfway between the journalistic investigation and the judicial report , a book that will not fail to raise debate and controversy . In Italy and especially abroad.
