Wiki: Empress Elisabeth of Austria Wiki

The death of her only son in a murder-suicide tragedy at his hunting lodge at Mayerling was a shock from which she never recovered. She withdrew from court duties, and travelled widely, unaccompanied by her family. In the palace, she was seen to be obsessively concerned with her health and beauty, having to be sewn into her leather corsets and spending two or three hours a day on her coiffure.

While travelling in Geneva in 1898, she was stabbed to death by an anarchist, who had missed his chance to assassinate the Duke of Orléans and wanted to kill the next member of royalty that he saw.

She was the longest-reigning Empress of Austria, at 44 years. [WIKI]  -30-
