Well, not personally however royalty did have servants that practically raised the children themselves or governesses.

Wealthy people could simply hire nannies. And for the less fortunate have the older siblings help the younger siblings, in modern terms.

My famiy had au pairs and a nanny but that is only because my family is large and I was a small child at the time.

Maria Theresia was also Duchess of Limburg, the House of Hapsburg if my information is correct. I would love to read some more information about her, she truly is very fascinating :D I hope I have revived this topic.. anyone?

For me Maria Theresia was one great ruler, one smart and wise woman, very reasonable and we can see that from her relationship with her daughter.

Since you are very interested in her, can you tell me something interesting from her private life?
I know that she had 16 children but did she have lovers?
I know for her military reforms, for her enlightened absolutism but not so much about her personality and youth.

Teach me! I will try to find some interesting detail about her and post it also. :rainbow:

From what I have read and seen is that Marie Therese was a tough cookie!

She reminds me of my grandma.
She was courageous, and ruled with an iron fist.
She raised the bar so high, she made all the other rulers look feeble.
