Biography

Karoline von Woltmann, née Stosch (6 March 1782 in Berlin – 18 November 1847 in Berlin) was a German author who also wrote under the pseudonym Luise Berg. She was regarded by her contemporaries as "the German Genlis".

Biography

Karoline was the eldest daughter of physician and Prussian secret advisor Karl Wilhelm Stosch and of Auguste Stosch, née Hönig. She developed an interest in literature at an early age.

In the age of 17, she married poet and war advisor Karl Müchler. They separated in 1804, but in the same year Karoline met the author Karl Ludwig von Woltmann [de], whom she married on October 25, 1805. Around 1804, she wrote her first novel named Euphrosyne, that was later reworked with Karl Ludwig von Woltmann and published under the title Heloise. Then she wrote a few works and worked with her husband. In 1813 they moved to Prague, where Karoline translated several works of Maria Edgeworth. Since Karl Ludwig von Woltmann stopped writing because of a right arm paralysis, his wife has edited his works. He died in 1817.

In the same year, Karoline von Woltmann wrote a supplement to Karl Ludwig's autobiography and started publishing his Sämmtlichen Werke in 14 volumes until 1827. In 1824, she became an editor of the Prague-based periodical Der Kranz, where her works were also published. Two years later she went back to Germany and lived in Berlin, where she died in 1847. She traveled to Italy and Switzerland in 1832 and 1833.
