Bertha von Suttner was an Austrian novelist, peace activist, and the first woman to receive the Nobel Peace Prize. Bertha von Suttner became friends with Ekaterine Chavchavadze-Dadiani. He left for Georgia in 1876 after a secret marriage to Arthur von Suttner in Vienna. The couple lived here for 9 years. They lived in Zugdidi and Kutaisi and then in Tbilisi. Suttner wrote books, taught foreign languages and music.
Bertha von Suttner was particularly popular in the novel Lay Down Your Arms!, published in 1889. That was one of the factors why Suttner received the Nobel Peace Prize in 1905.
