Karoline von Wolzogen (1763–1847)

Wolzogen, Karoline von (vōl-tso’gen). A German novelist; born at Rudolstadt, Feb. 3, 1763; died at Jena, Jan. 11, 1847. She was a sister of Schiller’s wife, and his intimate friend; and her ‘Life of Schiller’ is a charming and trustworthy biography. She published two romances, ‘Agnes von Lilien’ (2 vols., 1798), for a time thought to be Goethe’s work by the most eminent critics; and ‘Cordelia’ (2 vols., 1840).
