    Default Madame [Louise Elisabeth] de Meuron

    Louise Elisabeth de Meuron (22 August 1882 – 22 May 1980), known as Madame de Meuron, was a well-known eccentric Swiss aristocrat from Bern.



    The tragedy of her son's suicide caused her to dress in mourning for the rest of her life. She devoted herself to philosophy and wrote innumerable letters. She regularly staged equestrian jumping events (concours hippiques) and was noted for her imperious manner. Meuron's lifestyle gave rise to innumerable anecdotes which, however, while having substance, should not all be taken at face value.

    Her reputation was derived not only from her anachronistic appearance—old fashioned widow's weeds, walking stick, and ear trumpet ("So that I hear only what I want to hear")—but also on account of her eccentric behaviour. She was often seen in downtown Bern accompanied by her Russian greyhounds. Her staff were allowed to park her car anywhere; if police came she would exclaim, "That stays here!" She never bought a tram ticket, because, as she stated:
    "I was here before the tram!"

    She would ask total strangers,
    "Are you someone or do you get a salary?"
    <- that is insanely accurate funny.

    When a farmer wanted to sit on the Frisching family pew in church, she pulled him off, stating
    "Up in heaven we'll all be equal, but in the meantime, down here, we'll have a bit of discipline."
    I'd say ILE.
    @chriscorey what do you think?

    She sounds entitled.
    Bound upon me, rush upon me, I will overcome you by enduring your onset: whatever strikes against that which is firm and unconquerable merely injures itself by its own violence. Wherefore, seek some soft and yielding object to pierce with your darts.

    Yup.
    What would you do if you inherited that much were expected to keep up with aristocratic manners and no one expected you to work? Think about it.
