Why would Marie Valerie's marital status influence whether her brother would send her a note??

I thought that he left several (8?) suicide notes, to all family members, with one notable exception: his father...?

That's right Lee-Z, Rudolph left notes for everyone in his immediate family except his father the Emperor.

Fall of Eagles 1970's mini series which deals with the whole lead up to WWI devotes an episode to this. Available on Youtube...I just watched it a couple of months ago.
I believe both tout the double suicide theory. But I believe they both think the poor girl was given poisoned tea. In fact in Fall of Eagles, the girls corpse shows no signs of violence at all.
Anyway, do check out Fall of Eagles.
Thank you, Ana, I've just watched the Mayerling episode and Episode #1 of this series, of which I had not heard before - it looks excellent.
I'll be watching the rest of the episodes, and I'm grateful you mentioned it.
