She suffered a nervous breakdown, and while she was recovering he began to pay her visits, giving her piano lessons; almost inevitably he fell in love with her. But once again, as with Countess Giulietta Guicciardi, she was of a higher social rank than he, and although she enjoyed his company, she wanted nothing more. Beethoven’s love was at its most intense during the winter of 1804–5, and in a letter she wrote from Budapest in 1806 she asked him to love her less seriously. It had ended by the end of 1807, after which she left Vienna permanently.
He was decorated with the freedom of the city of Vienna in 1815 and continued to turn out second-rate patriotic pieces during that year, including the Namensfeier overture, op. 115, in March in honour of the Emperor’s birthday, and ‘Es ist vollbracht’, WoO 97, for bass, chorus and orchestra, inspired by the Battle of Waterloo, and performed several times in July 1815.

On 4 May, as the French forces approached the outskirts of Vienna, the Emperor’s wife and family, accompanied by Archduke Rudolph, left Vienna, and by 10 May the city was surrounded.
