She received the sobriquet "Messalina of Germany" for her political intrigues, and was instrumental in creating the Order of the Dragon.

Slovenian euro coins, first issued for circulation on 1 January 2007, feature a unique design for each coin. The selection process for the coins started in April 2004, involving preliminary discussions with numismatists, designers and experts.
