German pro astrologer and author of "Astrology and Romance, " a 1926 classic on synastry. A graphologist and data collector, she was co-editor of "Blick in die Zukunst" 1917-38, with special interests in prognosis, mundane, fixed stars, psychological and partnership astrology. She was the mother of Reinhold Ebertin and grandmother of Baldur Ebertin. In 1906, she was divorced from her husband and her son was put in a foster home. Her ex-husband kept her away from their son as much as possible but she managed to form bonds with him, teaching him astrology after 1922 and supporting his first effort to publish.

Elsbeth died 11/28/1944, Freiburg, Baden, Germany at the time of an Allied bomb attack.
