Anyone who argues that Leopold was “good” to Regina needs to look at this picture. Anyone who thinks that Regina’s marriage to Leopold was “just one of those things that happened in those days” needs to look at this picture. Anyone who thinks that this woman wasn’t forced into a marriage where she was unhappy, heartbroken, grieving and utterly miserable needs to look at this goddamn picture. It’s not just regret on Regina’s face here. It’s not even just sadness. This is a woman who has been broken by the things her mother made her do, who was trapped in a marriage where her husband not only ignored her most of the time, but compared her unfavorably to his first wife. And being compared to someone who was, to all intents and purposes, a martyr, rendered Regina completely powerless. And anyone who thinks that it “wasn’t that bad” or that Regina felt ANYTHING but rejected by him needs to LOOK AT THIS PICTURE.
