Marie von Clausewitz (née von Brühl)
Starting in 1803, Clausewitz's ambitious romance with Marie von Brühl, whose family and social position far outshone Clausewitz's, led to marriage (1810) and to a famous intellectual partnership crucial to the evolution of On War. After her husband's death in 1831, Marie edited the book and wrote a preface to it. Wikipedia (Deutsch) entry.
