Of possible interest?

Typical mid-Victorian historical fiction full of purple prose and laced heavily with "German" nationalism and emotions that make The Sorrows of Young Werther look positively bland.

That being said, Luisa Muhlbach was legendary for the length and breadth of her work that covered a wide range of "important people." This one about Queen Louisa was the first one I read when I was twelve, and I simply adored it. My favorite character was Ferdinand von Schill.

I inherited all eighteen books from my grandfather, and have read every one at least twice. Not at all sure they would appeal to modern readers, but Muhlbach and Queen Louisa started me down my very long path of Napoleonic scholarship.

I have read a book of fiction about Queen Louisa and enjoyed it being a Prussian aficionado so maybe I will read it. It could be the one I read.
