Source Notes

Sy Scholfield originally quoted from "Ehrenspiegel des glorreichen Hauses Wittelsbach: Ein bayerisches Geschichts- und Volksbuch für alle Stände" by Friedrich Wilhelm Bruckbräu (Fleischmann, 1867), p. 285: "Geboren in München den 28. Nov. 1811, Nachmittags 3 Uhr 10 Minuten." Death data from same book, same page.

Scholfield later quoted same data from news reports, Baierische National-Zeitung, 29 Nov 1811, "28. November. Heute Nachmittag nach 3 Uhr... entbunden worden."; Allgemeine Zeitung, 30 Nov 1811, page 4: "München, 28 Nov. Heute zehn Minuten nach drei Uhr sind Ihre königl. Hoheit die Kronprinzessin von Baiern von ei nem Prinzen glüklich entbunden worden."

The Rodden Rating was thus upgraded from B to A.
