Trivia (4)

Her daughter with Italian dentist Ermanno Ceconi, Marie (or Marietta) Antonie Ceconi, was born on September 9, 1898; they lived together in various homes in Europe after Huch divorced Ceconi. She had long been in love with her cousin and brother-in-law, Richard or Ricardo Huch, but their eventual marriage did not end happily.
Thomas Mann referred to her as "Germany's first lady" on the occasion of her 60th birthday.
A prominent writer and intellectual of the Weimar Republic, Ricarda Huch was a German novelist, poet, cultural historian, librarian, lecturer, and anti-Nazi critic. Early on, she published her poetry under the pseudonyms 'R. I. Carda' and 'Richard Hugo.'
Huch became the first female student admitted to the University of Zurich (possibly because she came from a wealthy family, as well as being brilliant); there she studied history, philosophy, and philology, and earned a doctorate in history in 1892. She was also the President of the first Congress of German writers in Berlin and the first woman to be admitted to the Prussian Academy of Literature (1931).
