Schöne Münchenerin

The daughter of a shoemaker, Helene Sedlmayr, the "Beauty of Munich", caught the eye of Bavarian King Ludwig I when she was only fifteen. He ordered a painting to be made of her, so as to capture her beauty and display it in his palace. Her picture now hangs in the Munich Residenz in the Gallery of Beauties of KingLudwig I. But enough historical education! 

Look at her lovely eyes, her tiny waist and that shiny hair. Beautiful. (She was 15)

Thanks to Jen K. for the submission of Ms. Sedlmayr!

  1. Wow. She is really pretty. Reminds me of myself at that age. KIDDING! But no, really, she's gorgeous.
