Thayer thought the letter must have been written around Thomas-San-Gallichecked out the official listings of guests in Bohemiaand at first in concluded that Amalie Sebald was the "Immortal Beloved".
Sebald was definitely not in Prague at the beginning of Julyand Cooperp. There was also a forged Beethoven letter by Paul Bekker in Die Musik,  But it was already shown to be a hoax by Newman —- a last-ditch effort to salvage the discredited Guicciardi hypothesis.
Kaznelson evaluated more of the documents in the Brunsvik estates, and even though he thought that Rahel Varnhagen was behind the "Distant Beloved" he concluded that the "Immortal Beloved" must have been Josephine mainly because her daughter Minona was born exactly nine months after the encounter with Beethoven and her husband Baron Stackelberg was away.
But curiously enough, it is precisely the same documents which shed a definitive light, in the negative sense, on Therese which bear witness to Beethoven's passionate love for her sister Josephine.
From the standpoint of music theory, the connections make eminent sense. It is like a dream, that he was the friend, the confidant of our house — a beautiful mind! Why did not my sister Josephine, as widow Deym, take him as her husband? They were born for each other.

However, this had not been noticed outside Japan. She also published her findings again in a recent book in German Aoki Once again and more detailed Solomonsuggested Antonie Brentano to have been the "Immortal Beloved".
Antonie arrived in Prague on 3 July after an arduous journey with husband, child and servant and was registered there ; she left at dawn the following morning: Goldschmidt showed that "for short stays, residents [as opposed to foreigners] were exempt from reporting requirements".
There are no love letters from or to Antonie, and no other documents supporting the possibility of a love relationship with Beethoven, there is only a letter by Antonie to her brother-in-law Clemens, where she expressed her "admiration" of Beethoven: There is still room for a reasonable doubt.
