Short biography
Princess Theresa of Bavaria was the only daughter of the Prince Regent Luitpold of Bavaria and his wife, Auguste Ferdinands of Austria. She was educated at home along with her two brothers, and showed a keen interest in languages and botany. She fell in love with her cousin Prince Otto of Bavaria, but his mental illness prevented a marriage. At age 21, she began traveling in Europe and North Africa. She learned to read and write in a total of 12 languages and collected thousands of plant and animal specimens. She wrote several books about the natural history of places she visited, often under the pseudonym "Th. v. Bayer." In an era when women were not permitted to study at universities, she became the first woman to receive an honorary doctorate from the Ludwig Maximilian University of Munich in 1897.
