About Maria Constanze Josepha Johanna Aloisia Weber

Wikipedia Biographical Summary:

"...Constanze Mozart (born Constanze Weber) (5 January 1762 – 6 March 1842) was the wife of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart..."

"...Constanze Weber was born in Zell im Wiesental. Her mother was Cäcilia Weber, née Stamm. Her father Fridolin Weber worked as a "double bass player, prompter and music copyist." Fridolin's half-brother was the father of composer Carl Maria von Weber. Constanze had two older sisters, Josepha and Aloysia and one younger one, Sophie. All were trained as singers, and Josepha and Aloysia both went on to distinguished musical careers, performing later on in the premieres of a number of Mozart's works...."

"...The marriage did indeed take place that day, 4 August 1782. In the marriage contract, Constanze "assigns to her bridegroom five hundred gulden which [...] the latter has promised to augment with one thousand gulden", with the total "to pass to the survivor". Further, all joint acquisitions during the marriage were to remain the common property of both..."

"...The couple had six children, of whom four did not survive infancy.

  1. Raimund Leopold (17 June – 19 August 1783)
  2. Karl Thomas Mozart (21 September 1784 – 31 October 1858)
  3. Johann Thomas Leopold (18 October – 15 November 1786)
  4. Theresia Constanzia Adelheid Friedericke Maria Anna (27 December 1787 – 29 June 1788)
  5. Anna Maria (b/d 25 December 1789)
  6. Franz Xaver Wolfgang Mozart (26 July 1791 – 29 July 1844)

"...Mozart died in 1791, leaving debts and placing Constanze in a difficult position. At this point Constanze's business skills came into fruition: she obtained a pension from the Emperor, organized profitable memorial concerts, and embarked on a campaign to publish her husband's works..."

"...Toward the end of 1797, she met Georg Nikolaus von Nissen, a Danish diplomat and writer who was, initially, her tenant.[13] The two began living together in September 1798,[14] and were married in 1809 in Bratislava. From 1810 to 1820 they lived in Copenhagen, and subsequently travelled throughout Europe, especially Germany and Italy. They settled in Salzburg in 1824. Both worked on a biography of Mozart; Constanze eventually published it in 1828, two years after her second husband's death.

During Constanze's last years in Salzburg, she had the company of her two surviving sisters, Aloysia and Sophie, also widows, who moved to Salzburg and lived out their lives there..."
