Nice to know
Josephine von Deym describes her love for Beethoven, but decidedly declines any further approaches. After Beethoven and Josephine Deym had written intimate letters to one another in winter 1804/05, their relationship noticeably cooled in 1806; Beethoven's love was too insistent and demanding for Josephine, she also energetically repulsed his petty jealousies. The break occurred in September 1807.
