NOTES

Duvillard

In Geneva Mary Shelley hired a local nursemaid for her son William named Louise Duvillard, who would remain with the Shelley family until 1818, when she left them to marry in Naples. William Frankenstein's sweetheart bears her first name, and this rich banker her second. To some extent Justine Moritz may be modeled on her.
