Princess Louise of Belgium: 'Eve after the Fall of Man'




After an unhappy childhood in the court of her father King Leopold II, Princess Louise Marie of Belgium gained some freedom in her marriage to Prince Philip of Saxe-Coburg-Gotha. However, the couple drifted apart, and Louise finally found happiness with Count Geza Mattachich. Her life with Mattachich involved scandal, debt, imprisonment, and exile, but she stayed with him until his death and outlived him by only a few months.

Marengo is continuing his series of historical biographies with an article about a very eccentric and unusual princess, Princess Louise Marie of Belgium, who scandalised Europe with her affair and ended up living in poverty and exile. As usual this is an interesting, informative, and scholarly article, and it makes a very welcome addition to the Biography section.

We have a thread about the princess here in the Belgian Royal History forum.
