Bridget Dowling

Elizabeth Bridget Hitler , (nee Dowling ( 03 of July of 1891 – 18 of November of 1969 ), was the sister of Adolf Hitler , through his marriage to Alois Hitler, Jr.was the mother of the son of Alois Hitler William Patrick Hitler : She was born and raised in Dublin, Ireland.

Commitment to Alois Hitler, Jr.

In 1909, she and her father, William Dowling, attended the Dublin Horse Show, where she met Alois Hitler, Jr. , who claimed to be a wealthy hotelier who was touring Europe when, in reality, he was a poor waiter in The Shelbourne Hotel in Dublin. Alois met with Bridget at various venues in Dublin and was soon discussing marriage. On June 3, 1910, the couple fled to London, living on Charing Cross Road for a while. His father threatened to report Alois for kidnapping, but he accepted the marriage after Bridget begged him.

Early years of married life

The pair settled at 102 Upper Stanhope Street in Toxteth, Liverpool, and in 1911 they had their only son, William Patrick Hitler . The house was destroyed in the last German air strike in the Blitz of Liverpool the 10 of January of 1942, and was again a place bombarded several years ago.

Division of his family

Alois went to Germany in 1914 to settle in the business world, but these plans were interrupted by the outbreak of the First World War . Bridget refused to go with him, since he had become violent and beat his son. Alois decided to leave his family. He returned to Germany, remarried, and sent a message (under a false identity) after the war that he was supposed to be dead. His deception was later discovered, and he was accused of bigamy by the German authorities in 1924. He was acquitted because of Bridget’s intervention. Bridget raised her child alone, without the support of her husband from whom she finally divorced (although as a Catholic she opposed divorce). She settled in a house in Highgate , north of London, and contracted tenants , whom she paid at the end of each month.


In 1939, he joined his son on a trip to the United States , where he was invited to give a lecture about his uncle, whom he considered an infamous. They decided to stay and Bridget wrote a manuscript, My Brother-in-Law Adolf , in which she claimed that her brother -in- law had moved to Liverpool to live with Bridget and Alois from November 1912 to April 1913 in order to avoid military service Mandatory in his native Austria. He claims that he taught Adolf astrology , and that she advised him to cut the edges of his characteristic mustache.

She was unable to sell the manuscript and most historians dismiss the work as a written work in an attempt to capitalize on her famous relationship. Brigitte Hamann and Hans Mommsen said that the records show that Hitler was in Vienna during this period.

There is no evidence corroborating that Hitler never visited his relatives in Liverpool. Professor Robert Waite refutes his claim that Adolf Hitler had stayed with her, as it did in most of his book entitled The Psychopathic God: Adolf Hitler . According to David Gardiner, Bridget’s niece said Bridget had admitted to her that the book was fantasy. The history of Adolf Hitler’s visit to Liverpool has maintained its popularity, however, and was the subject of the novel of 1978 written by Beryl Bainbridge Young Adolf and the famous comic of 1989 of Grant Morrison and Steve Yeowell The New Adventures of Hitler .


After the war Bridget and her son settled on Long Island under the false name of Stuart-Houston. She died in this place the 18 as November as 1969 and is buried in the cemetery of the Holy Sepulchre in Coram , Long Island with his son, who died on July 14, 1987.

The family of Bridget Dowling Hitler remained a mystery until the censuses of Ireland of 1901 and 1911 were digitalized and published online. The names of family members, including Bridget, are given in the 1901 census under the name William Dowling of Flemings Place, near Mespil Road , Dublin . The family moved to Denzille Street , Dublin, now called Fenian Street, according to the 1911 census. Bridget’s name is not included in this census, since she was supposedly from England at the time. Interestingly, the 1911 census in Dublin was filled by Bridget, based on samples of her calligraphy.

According to author David Gardner, who discovered the “Hitler family” in the United States, Adolf Hitler visited the Dowling family in Dublin, presumably at Fenian St. Gardner could find no other living person willing to admit a direct relationship with Adolf Hitler . Adolf Hitler’s closest known acquaintances are the Hitler brothers of Long Island (who have since changed their name to Stuart-Houston), have renounced all their rights to Hitler’s fortune controlled by the Bavarian Government , Which means that any survivor with the Dowling surname would be the only remaining heir. William Dowling is usually associated with Kilnamanagh, Dublin, but he was born in Kildare; His parents were Martin and Elizabeth Dowling, of Crookstown, County of Kildare .
