Very many inconsistencies!
and *lol* very interesting screenplay-story....ready for a great Hollywood-film.
also Stöffel and Stoffel not the same names!!!
"Mrs. Wood is interested in the Stoeffel silk mills in Switzerland, one of the largest plants of its kind in the world, and she owns one European castle, the Largo di Maggiore et Tessin, situated at one of Switzerland’s beautiful lakes. This castle was tendered to the United States during the war."
" Margarita returned home to Vienna and in 1898, with the help of Count Louis K. Stoeffel of the Arbon Castle at Lake Maggiore at Ticino, she regained custody of her son."http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Countess_Stoeffel
it´s wellknown at Europeans that the castle Arbon is at Bodensee/lake Constance in the north of Switzerland and not at Lago Maggiore, which is located in the south. the castle had never anything to do with USA or needed to be tendered there. it belonged since 2011 to the family Saurer and was later sold to the town Arbon where the castle is located.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Arbon_Castle
"the tale of a woman who, educated in the leading European universities, dared defy and make little of the ridiculous formalities and august customs of the German court....."
i thought it was only Vienna? now some universities more.....?
“Later I went to Switzerland and married Count Louis K. Stoffel of that county....."
it´s wellknown that Switzerland had no nobility that time! the stated Stoffel of this story where normal industrial people and not of nobility!
"former countess of Switzerland and lady of the royal court of Germany,...."
german royality and german nobility is not the same!
"Eighteen years ago he was taken from her by order of the German court because she had become estranged from his father, one of Germany’s leading nobles. Why she was separated and later divorced from Graf Fischer is a tale of its own".
never heared about a german "leading noble" family "von Fischer".
