Forgotten Habsburg Women
… because everyone knows the famous ones! Explore the exciting lives of those Habsburg women who have been unjustly forgotten. Whether by marriage or born into the imperial family – Julia Meister has set herself the goal of recalling important personalities to the collective consciousness in the mirror of female social history.
Her main occupation to date has been to look after the Marienfließ monastery in Brandenburg as a historian and in marketing matters. There she created a bilingual audio guide and led interested groups around the monastery grounds.
She can be booked as a copywriter and editor via her website.
Definitely worth seeing!
