in Vienna, succeeding Sophie Schröder. She married the actor
Karl Rettich in 1833.|
Because of intrigues against her she returned to Dresden in 1833, but in 1835 she was once more engaged at the Burgtheater and she never left in again. She had connections at the Court and her salon was visited by people like Franz Grillparzer, Friedrich Hebbel, Heinrich Laube and Adalbert Stifter. She was a close friend of Friedrich Halm, who wrote some of her finest parts.
From 1863 onwards her health was failing and she was no longer able to work as an actress. She died in 1866. The Rettichgasse in Vienna is named after her.
