St. Elizabeth of Hesse

Post  princess garnet on Wed May 23, 2012 1:37 pm

A profile of Tsaritsa Alexandra's older sister by Mad Monarchist:

I'd like to add Ella was offered opportunities to leave but she refused. One offer came from Kaiser Wilhelm. (p. 520, Robert K. Massie's Nicholas & Alexandra) Although she turned him down as a suitor, they were still cousins.

I think the Kaiser truly loved Ella until the end of his life and his desire to rescue her sprang partly from his knowledge that - against his will! - Lenin had been allowed to pass through Germany to cause trouble in Russia. The Kaiser was also keen to help Nicholas & Alexandra escape - he offered them safe haven, too, and told his brother Henry to ensure that any ship bearing the Tsar's flag be allowed to pass safely through the Baltic.

Thank you, Elena. I think the fact that this is rarely mentioned, is one of many examples of the way in which the Kaiser's true character has often been distorted by historians.

A post on St. Elizabeth. http://teaattrianon.blogspot.com/2013/07/a-sacrificing-and-transforming-love.html To quote:
All of her spiritual qualities were strictly balanced, one against another, never giving an impression of one-sidedness. Femininity was joined in her to a courageous character; her goodness never led to weakness and blind, unconditional trust of people. Even in her finest heartfelt inspirations she exhibited that gift of discernment which has always been so highly esteemed by Christian ascetics….
