This chapter discusses the case of Duchess Elisabeth of Rochlitz. It presents in-depth studies of noblewomen practitioners in early modern medicine from the patient's viewpoint. Elisabeth relied on physicians to aid her with her ill health. Doctors frequently acted as close associates and friends and rather than merely professionals to noblemen and noblewomen. This chapter also explains the experience of illness in early modern Germany.

Keywords:   Duchess Elisabeth of Rochlitz, noblewomen practitioners, early modern medicine, noblemen, ill health
