Archduchess of Austria (1743) Maria Elisabeth


Austrian Archduchess, the sixth child of Maria Theresa, Queen of Hungary, Croatia and Bohemia and Francis I, Holy Roman Emperor. She was abbess of the Convent for Noble Ladies in Innsbruck from 1780 until 1806. Beautiful in her youth, she later suffered from smallpox which terribly scarred her face. Maria Elisabeth was called "Liesl", and known for her sharp tongue. She eventually became greatly overweight. She died on 22 September 1808, aged 65, at Linz.

Sy Scholfield quotes from "Die Kinder Maria Theresias: Leben und Schicksal in kaiserlichem Glanz" by Charlotte Pangels (Callwey Georg D.W. GmbH, 1983), p. 228: "... wurden gegen 3 Uhr Nachmittag mit einer zwar sehr klein und schwachen Prinzessin entbunden, welche noch selben Abends gegen 8 Uhr laut aufschlüssigen Protocolls Extract von dem Nuncio getaufft und Maria Elisabeth Josepha Johanna Antonia benammset wurde."

Translation: ... around 3 o'clock in the afternoon a very small and weak princess was delivered, and the same evening at 8 o'clock she was baptized with the names Maria Elisabeth Josepha Johanna Antonia.

Same data in Wiener Zeitung, 14 August 1743, p. 7: "Dienstag, den 13... Nach-mittag gegen 3. Uhr" (Tuesday, the 13th ... in the after-noon at about 3 o'clock).
