Die Nebeldame
Gabriel Janer Manila: Die Nebeldame. Domus Editoria Europaea; Frankfurt am Main, 2003.
Originally published in 1987, this historical novel portrays 19th century Majorca, during the period of the Austrian archduke Lluís Salvador (Ludwig Salvator, a member of the Habsburg dynasty), who purchased land in the north of the island, where he built his private 'kingdom'. The novel is also a formidable psychological portrait of a cultured and refined personage, who dedicated himself to the study of the Balearics - language, history, culture and natural habitat - but who was also despotic and had a dark side to him, disturbed as he was by his desires and passions.
