Download E-books Die kranken Habsburger: Befunde und Befindlichkeiten einer Herrscherdynastie (German Edition) PDF

By Hans Bankl

Nach dem großen Erfolg seines Buches "Der Pathologe weiß alles ... aber zu spät" setzt sich der stets zu einem Bonmot bereite Hans Bankl hier mit Österreichs liebster Familie auseinander: den Habsburgern. In seinem unerschöpflichen Fundus an Krankengeschichten, Autopsieberichten und medizinischen Anekdoten über berühmte Persönlichkeiten hat Hans Bankl natürlich auch so manche Köstlichkeit zu diesem Thema parat. Der Bogen spannt sich von Rudolf IV., dem Schwindler, und Friedrich III., der mit seinem "AEIOU" auch als Quizmaster in die Geschichte einging, über Gepflogenheiten im Hause der "stattlichen Landesmutter" Maria Theresia und die erotischen Eskapaden der Isabella von Bourbon-Parma bis zur Pedanterie Kaiser Franz Josephs und der tragischen Persönlichkeit Kronprinz Rudolfs. Kurze Geschichten und knappe Porträts, schrille Anekdoten und bemerkenswerte Zitate sind es, mit denen der Autor ein ungewöhnliches, ein wenig desprektierliches, aber doch liebevoll koloriertes Bild einer Familie zeichnet, deren Schicksale auch heute noch die Gemüter bewegen.
