Amalie Freud


1835-1930. Mother of Sigmund Freud

Amalie Nathanson Freud was born into an orthodox Jewish family in Vienna. She got married at the age of 20 and was Jacob Freud's third wife. Amalie had seven children. The first and her most favorite was Sigismund (later Sigmund). To Amalie, her first-born was always her "golden Sigi."

Sigmund was close to his mother and during his self-analysis in the late 1890s which led to his formulation of the Oedipus Complex he remembered as a child seeing his mother naked. This and other recollections of his relationship to his mother led Freud to develop his theory of infantile sexuality, a precursor idea to the famous complex.

Freud wrote,

If a man has been his mother's undisputed darling, he retains throughout his life the triumphant feeling, the confidence in success, which not seldom brings actual success along with it.
