German psychiatrist who was a leading figure in the Völkisch movement known for her esoteric and conspiratorial ideas. Together with her third husband, General Erich Ludendorff, she founded the Bund für Gotteserkenntnis (Society for the Knowledge of God), a small and rather obscure esoterical society of theists, which was banned from 1961 to 1977.

She launched a number of attacks on astrology, arguing that it had always been a Jewish perversion of astronomy and that it was being used to enslave the Germans and dull their reasoning. The title of her main work on the subject, Fraud of Astrology, indicated her position succinctly.

She died on 24 June 1966 in Tutzing, aged 88.
