Summit Signatures

19F Mount Marie Louise

Location: San Bernardino County, California

Seemingly named for French Emperor Napoleon's second wife Marie-Louise von Habsburg (1791-1874), an Austrian princess whom he married in 1810. However, what (if any) connection exists between this peak and the Empress remains a mystery. It could have been named after an unknown surveyor's sweetheart, since there is no record of any early resident's wife or daughter being given this name. More likely it was a recent addition, given as a whim by a fire-boss.

Name first appears on USFS San Bernardino National Forest map (1959).

Peak was added to the HPS Peak List in 1960.
