The True Story of Joseph Haydn's Head - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia


"Through a series of devious maneuvers Peter and Rosenbaum managed to maintain possession of the skull. With both men’s houses due to be searched, Peter gave the skull to Rosenbaum, who hid it in a straw mattress. During the search of Rosenbaum’s house, his wife Therese lay on the bed and claimed to be menstruating—with the result that the searchers did not go near the mattress. Eventually Rosenbaum gave Prince Esterházy a different skull.”
