Several anecdotes are told about this first meeting between the fifty-three-year-
old Emperor and the thirty- year-old Katharina Schratt. According to Heinrich
Benedikt, Katharina Schratt had been extremely shy and unsure of herself; before
Franz Joseph to Katharina Schratt: "The Empress thinks that it may be an honor
to be my friend, but assomant [sic; immensely boring] because of my constant
inquiries about your whereabouts."19 When Prince Albert of Thurn und Taxis was
Franz Joseph to Katharina Schratt in 1890: "How happy I would be if I could talk
over my fears for the Empress with you and find comfort with you."29 Elisabeth
regularly sent her regards to Schratt, as she did, for example, from Arcachon.
