The sixth commandment
“You shall not practice immodesty”

A small Viennese chronicle of scandal

Highlights

  • Seductive opera singers and actresses from the Imperial Theater
  • An archduke in women’s clothes
  • In love with her sister-in-law

“The Habsburgs were Catholic and puritanical!”

But were they? Empress Maria Theresia established a chastity commission to police both nobility and average citizens, even sending spies into their bedrooms. Were the Viennese cowed into abstaining? Are promiscuity, homosexuality and cross-dressing purely modern phenomena? How did Mimi, Katherl, Otto the Handsome, Luziwuzi and other members and associates of the Habsburg rulers deal with morality? A “scandalous” search for clues in central Vienna.
