Theresa Pulszky, also Terézia Pulszky, (1819 - 1866) was a European author and translator.[1] Fellow author and Hungarian political leader Ferenc Pulszky was her husband. They lived in London before her husband was allowed to return to Hungary. According to Worldcat 22 editions of her memoir and 24 editions of the travelogue she wrote with her husband were produced.[2]

Theresa Walter was the daughter of a wealthy Viennese banker.[3] She moved with her husband to London after the Hungarian Revolution of 1848. She learned Hungarian.[3]

Her book The Tradition of the Hungarian Race (U.S. edition) includes a portrait of her, an essay, and 20 Hungarian myths and legends including "The Baron's Daughter" and "The Hungarian Outlaws". She and her husband recounted their travels in the U.S. with Lajos Kossuth, abdicated leader of Hungary, in the book White, Red, Black; Sketches of Society in the United States During the Visit of Their Guest.[4]
