Casualties[edit]

Whoever wrote that the war led to the death of more than one millions Paraguayan have issues, there were not so many people in the country even at the start of the conflict... JidGom 00:48, 13 Jun 2004 (UTC)

Cerro Cora[edit]

I erased a part on the Paraguay section which recounted how she buried López and their son. It read "in a tatterd dress in the rain (the lovely queen who thought she deserved the world came to a humiliating end)". Again, this seems highly romantized and hardly encyclopedic material, even more so when the article itself mentions towards the end the great liberties taken by authors who based books on her life. If I find any real historic documentation on the events I'll add them. Veritiel (talk) 12:05, 27 October 2009 (UTC)

Biographical Section[edit]

This section reads a bit like a mini article on Lillis. I think it should be edited in way that it doesn't lose its focus on Lynch by maybe removing some of the info on Lillis bio and focusing a bit more on the book itself. Veritiel (talk) 11:36, 13 November 2009 (UTC)

Adulteress?[edit]

Much has been said about Elisa Lynch marital status. Until 1992, the Roman Catholic religion had official status in Paraguay, therefore divorce was forbidden and any woman who attempted to marry or, for instance, cohabited with a second man was considered an adulteress, a legal figure. If Madame Lynch's french marriage was not annulled by the Roman Catholic Church before the time she came to Paraguay with F.S. López, then her situation would have been the aforementioned. If she came from Europe with a clean marital record, then by her cohabition with López without marriage she would have committed fornication, a lesser offense. There is an urban legend that says that she is interred separate from López, who is at the National Heroe's Pantheon in Asunción, which is also a Roman Catholic temple consacrated to Our Lady of the Assumption, because the Church bans any adulteress to rest in such a holy place.
