Princess of Bavaria Alexandra Amalie (Portrait by Joseph Karl Stieler)


Bavarian princess, and a member of the House of Wittelsbach who devoted her life to literature.

Alexandra was the eighth child and fifth daughter of King Ludwig I of Bavaria and of his wife Princess Therese of Saxe-Hildburghausen.

Alexandra never married, and instead was appointed abbess of the Royal Chapter for Ladies of Saint Anne in Munich and Würzburg; this was a religious community specifically for noble ladies.

In 1852 Alexandra began a literary career. Her first book of stories was entitled Weihnachtsrosen (Christmas roses). In 1870 Alexandra produced Das Kindertheater (The children's theatre), a German translation of some French children's plays from Arnaud Berquin's L'ami des enfants.

Notwithstanding her literary accomplishments, Alexandra suffered from a number of psychological eccentricities, including a fixation with cleanliness as well as wearing only white clothes. In her early twenties, she notably developed a delusion that as a child she had swallowed a grand piano made of glass, which remained inside her.

Alexandra died on 21 September 1875, aged 49, at Schloss Nymphenburg.
