There will come a time when gifted poets will write verse in praise of the Grand Duchess, her noble soul, her radiant feats, feats of love and mercy. Her beautiful and noble deeds will never be erased from the memory of human nobility and mankind will bless her as great, for she was wedded to love.
Uneasy lies the Head that Wears a Crown
"History is the witness that testifies to the passing of time; it illumines reality, vitalizes memory, provides guidance in daily life and brings us tidings of antiquity" Cicero

Happy Birthday to one of the most Amazing women who had ever lived ~ • Princess Charlotte of Belgium, Archduchess of Austria, Empress of Mexico 7 June 1840 – 19 January 1927

She was born Princess Charlotte of Belgium but became famous the world over as Carlota, Empress of Mexico. From her earliest childhood she displayed the characteristics she would be known for throughout most of her life. She was extremely hardworking, despised idleness, very driven, very intelligent, very courageous and very independent while also being very devoted to those she loved. [more]

Charlotte is part of the forgotten in History, overshadowed by her sister-in-law the Empress Elisabeth of Austria. Still too often underappreciated, she was a generous, kind and thoughtful soul, but also a great and capable regent, courageous in adversity. One of the most amazing woman in history.
