Empress of Farewells
The Story of Charlotte, Empress of MexicoBook - 2002
As full of drama as any opera, "The Empress of Farewells" tells the story of Charlotte, daughter of King Leopold I of Belgium. Dazzlingly beautiful and gravely intelligent, she fell in love with Archduke Maximilian of Austria, brother of Habsburg emperor Franz Josef. Drawing on previously unpublished documents, Prince Michael answers some of these questions for the very first time. The result is a compelling, historically illuminating portrait of a remarkable woman.
