Source Notes

This entry originally had 3:45AM: Sy Scholfield quotes from "Elisabeth, Kaiserin von Österreich und Königin von Ungarn, 1837-1898" by Hans Rödhammer (Kulturverein Schloß Ebelsberg, 1983), p. 103: "Am 5.März 1855 um 3/4 4 Uhr entbindet Elisabeth ein Kind."

Translation: On March 5th, 1855 at 3/4 before 4 o'clock Elisabeth had a child.

On 5 October 2014, Scholfield adjusted the time to 3:15PM, quoting from "Die Kaisergruft bei den Kapuzinern in Wien" by Cölestin Wolfsgruber (Vienna, 1887), p. 318: "Nachdem bereits seit 7 3/4 Uhr morgens Betsunden in allen Kirchen Wiens abgehalten worden, wurde die Kaiserin Montag den 5. März 1855 um 3 1/4 Uhr nachmittags durch die Geburt einer Prinzessin erfreut."

Translation: Having been held in all the churches of Vienna since 7 3/4 o'clock in the morning prayer meetings, the Empress was delighted on Monday 5 March 1855 at 3 1/4 o'clock in the afternoon to give birth to a princess.

The rating was changed from B to A on 10 January 2017, with Scholfield citing news report in "Der Humorist," 6 March 1855, p. 4: "Nachmittags 3¼ Uhr" (3:15pm).
