Alf uncovered this nugget of nonsense while delving into Nobel Prize winners.
As the first woman ever, Bertha von Suttner was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 1905
There goes Eve’s claim to the title.
Baroness Bertha Sophie Felicita von Suttner – for what it’s worth – was born Countess Kinsky von Chinic und Tettau in Austria (and deserves to be added to Whale Oil’s list of silly names).
She lived from 1843-1914
She was an author, and Honorary President of the Permanent International Peace Bureau (Bureau International Permanent de la Paix), Bern.
