“Only now do I understand what bliss a child means. Now I have finally  had the courage to love the baby and keep it with me. My other children  were taken away from me at once. I was permitted to see the children  only when Archduchess Sophie gave permission. She was always present  when I visited the children. Finally I gave up the struggle and went  upstairs only rarely." Empress Sissi after the birth of her fourth child Marie-Valerie
