Helene Von Donniges, Countess Von Racovitza

Helene Von Donniges was a writer. Ferdinand Lassalle, founder of Germany's Democratic Socialist party, writer, and labor organizer, wished to marry her but her father refused, so in 1864 Lassalle challenged him to a duel and died. Helene married the Wallachian Count Von Racovitza and, subsequently, the actor Siegwart Friedmann, a leader in German theater. In a dramatic and romantic posture worthy of Sarah Bernhardt, Von Racovitza poses at the Mora studio.
