    From St Andrews - Lucy Coatman on the Mayerling Affair: Who? What? Where? Why? How?

    From St Andrews - Lucy Coatman on the Mayerling Affair: Who? What? Where? Why? How?

    I am very pleased to share my conversation with historian Lucy Coatman. Lucy has an undergrad in Theology but will soon be completing her Mlitt at St Andrew's University. Her main focus is 19th century women. However, Lucy is particularly fascinated by Baroness Mary Vetsera. Baroness Mary was found dead with heir to the Austro Hungarian thrown: Crown Prince Rudolph. Their bodies were discovered at Mayerling hunting lodge, approximately 20 miles outside Vienna, on 30th January 1889. This story has been heavily dramatised on stage and screen, but Lucy helps us clear up the fact from the fiction by charting us through what we know and what we'll never know about one of history's most fascinating and tragic tales. I hope you enjoy the episode...
