Ida, Countess von Hahn-Hahn (1805–1880)

Hahn-Hahn, Ida von, Countess (hän’hän). A German novelist; born at Tressow, Mecklenburg-Schwerin, June 22, 1805; died at Mainz, May 12, 1880. The scenes familiar to her were reproduced in her novels, which met with popular favor, particularly ‘Ulrich’ and ‘Two Women.’ At the height of her career she became a convert to the Catholic faith. She now produced various books of a proselytizing nature, and in 1852 took the veil, dying in a convent founded by herself.
