Source Notes

Sy Scholfield quotes "Die Kinder Maria Theresias: Leben und Schicksal in kaiserlichem Glanz" by Charlotte Pangels (Callwey Georg D.W. GmbH, 1983), p. 163: "Um elf Uhr nachts schenkte die Königin einem gesunden Mädchen das Leben. Die Kirchenglocken begannen zu läuten und auf den Basteien rund um Wien wurde die angemessene Anzahl von Kanonenschüssen gelöst. Das vierte Mädchen ..."

Translation: At eleven o'clock at night the queen gave birth to a healthy girl. The church bells began to ring and on the bastions surrounding Vienna, the appropriate number of cannon shots has been resolved. The fourth girl ...

On 5 October 2014, Scholfield adjusted the time to 11:15pm, quoting from "Die Kaisergruft bei den Kapuzinern in Wien" by Cölestin Wolfsgruber (Vienna, 1887), p. 270: "Erzherzogin Marie Christine ... 13. Mai 1742 ... um ¼ nach 11 uhr gegen Mitternacht durch die Geburt einer Prinzessin erfreut."

Translation: Archduchess Marie Christine ... 13 May 1742 ... at a quarter past 11 o'clock near midnight was born a princess."

Daughter's birth data from "Preßburger Zeitung," 20 May 1767, p. 4: "Pressburg, den 20. May. Von Wien haben wir Nachricht: daß Ihre konigl. Hoheit, die Erzherzoginn Maria Christina, den 16ten dies Abend gegen 9 Uhr von einer Prinzeßinn glücklich entbunden worden" (Pressburg, May 20th. From Vienna we have news that Her Highness, the Archduchess Maria Christina, on the 16th in the evening around 9 o'clock was happily delivered of a princess).
