And I Quote- Empress Maria Theresa

"At any moment I may be called before my Judge. I don't want to be surprised, I want to see death come." - Empress Maria Theresa, mother of Marie-Antoinette

The Empress refused to sleep, and died finally on the 29th of November, 1780; asserting her formidable will to the last.
