"Some time after her father's death, she took his 'Lodenmantel' - the green Austrian overcoat which he had worn - and after carefully cleaning it and repairing it, hung it in the wardrobe of her own bedroom. There it would remain, unused, almost until she died. But for as long as she lived she would wear the mantle of her father's authority, endeavouring as she did so to guard the kingdom that was her inheritance."

Richard Webster, Why Freud was wrong: sin, science and psychoanalysis, Harper Collins Publishers, London 1996, p.430
