Prutsch, U - Leopoldine von Habsburg

Prutsch, U - Leopoldine von Habsburg
Tropical plants and even a samba school are named after her: Leopoldine von Habsburg, enlightener in neo-absolutist times, is considered one of the most important and influential women in the country. She was a passionate naturalist, campaigning against slavery and poverty and turning court ceremonies upside down. Leopoldine was intellectually far superior to her husband Dom Pedro - nevertheless her biography is also a story of oppression and violence at the hands of a macho monarch who could not cope with her diverse talents. He eventually drove her to an early death at age 29. For the celebration of “200 years of Brazilian independence” in the summer of 2022, the popular Habsburg woman will finally be the center of attention again, she was the one who signed the document on Brazilian sovereignty. Bound edition, German language, 272 pages, size 22cm
