IS JULIAN FELLOWES IN CAHOOTS WITH GEORGE RR MARTIN? COME ON!!!!
Representation of the Empress Elisabeth(Sissi) of Austria. She was killed by an Italian anarchist who stabbed her in the chest with a home-sharpened metal file. This picture is frighteningly gorgeous.
“After being attacked and stabbed, empress Elisabeth of Austria boarded a ship, unaware of the severity of her condition as consequence of an acute stress reaction. Bleeding to death from a puncture wound to the heart, Elisabeth’s last words were, “What happened to me?”
“Not realising she was hurt because of her extremely tight corset and wanting to board as quickly as possible, Elisabeth got to her feet straightaway and walked onto the ship, where she later collapsed and died.”
This is pretty and all, but she was like 60 when she got stabbed. KNOWLEDGE IS POWER.
This poem was the definition of romance to me…A lady in love with an outlaw! He kisses her hair! She kills herself to warn him! But he goes and gets killed anyway because he’s so angry! SO ROMANTIC!!!!!!!
