HT Recommends: Empress Maria Therese
This time is a bit different because the request comes from a Twitter conversation where Ari from Reading in Color asked for recommendations about Marie Antoinette's mother.
Empress Maria Therese was the only female ruler of the Hapsburg dominions, was the last of the Hapsburgs to rule, mother of one of the more famous women in history, and so you would think that there would be some historical fiction written about her, but I don't know of anything. There are certain people in history that you would think that there would be more written about, and this would seem to be one of those times!
So, for this HT Recommends post, I am asking our readers for recommendations of books about Empress Maria Therese.
