Frohberg, Regina

German writer; born at Berlin Oct. 4, 1783; date of death not known. She was the daughter of a very wealthy merchant by the name of "Salomo" (Kayserling gives it as "Saaling"). When only eighteen years of age (1801) she married a certain Friedländer, but the marriage proved unhappy, and she soon procured a divorce. She then became a Christian, and took the name "Frohberg." She lived for a short time after this in Berlin, and moved in 1813 to Vienna, where she resided until her death.

She has published: "Louise, oder Kindlicher Gehorsam und Liebe im Streit," Berlin, 1808; "Schmerz der Liebe," Berlin, 1811, 2d ed. Vienna, 1815; "Erzählungen," Dresden, 1811, new ed. Vienna, 1817; "Das Opfer," Amsterdam and Leipsic, 1812, 2d ed. Vienna, 1815; "Das Gelübde," Vienna, 1816; "Stolz und Liebe," Brünn, 1820; "Der Liebe Kämpfe," Leipsic, 1826; "Eigene und Fremde Schuld," ib. 1837; "Vergangenheit und Zukunft," Gera, 1840; "Gedankenfrüchte auf dem Pfade des Lebens," Vienna, 1842, 2d ed. 1845.
