History can be hot and sexy. You don´t believe me? Look at them (Female version):
Empress Elisabeth of Austria, Duchess in Bavaria (1837-1898) nowadays known as Sisi. Mostly famous for her beauty and amazing hair, she was also a passionate rider, loves Hungary and was the first empress, the first woman of the really high nobility who had in every of her residences a sports chamber. Hot in everyway.
Archduchess Marie Valerie of Austria (1868-1924), daughter of Empress Elisabeth. She worked for the Red Cross and in military hospitals during WWI and gave birth to 9 children. She was the most beloved child of Elisabeth and was also known as the ´hungarian child` or the ´only child`. Beautiful as her mother.
Archduchess Elisabeth ´Erzsi´ Marie of Austria (1883-1963), only child of Crown Prince Rudolf of Austria-Hungary, married later a member of a social democratic party in Germany and was known as the ´Red Archduchess`. Truly the daughter of Rudolf.
Princess Viktoria Luise of Prussia (1892-1980), Duchess of Braunschweig-Lüneburg, Princess of Hannover, Princess of Great Britian and Ireland and the only daughter of Emperor Wilhelm II of Prussia/Germany. A princess in Uniform is hot, that´s law.
The letters of the picture are: Princess Viktoria Luise in the Uniform of her own hussars regiment.
Princess Luise in Mecklenburg-Strelitz, Queen of Prussia (1776-1810) was the wife of King Friedrich Wilhelm III. and was a symbol for resurgence of the Prussian Empire. She became an icon even during her life time.
Maria Christina of Austria (1742-1798), was one of the 16 children of Empress Maria Theresia of Austria, was called Marie or Mimi, was intelligent and manipulativ. She manipulated her parents so far, that she was the only daughter who not had to marry because of political reasons. And she had a sexual affair with her sister in law Isabella of Parma. That´s sexy and badass, right?
I just discovered again, that the only reason I am reasonable and don’t travel to towns in other countries just to stand there like a huge stalking fangirl, waiting for someone to sign anything, is probably that Maurice Ravel is dead already…
*sigh*..I mean…*sigh* *having a severe history crush, listening to quartet*
