Hedwig Maria Adolphine Gobertina von Trapp (28 July 1917 - 14 September 1972) was the fifth child of Georg Ludwig von Trapp and his first wife Agathe Whitehead (1890-1922). She was a member of the Trapp Family Singers, whose lives were the inspiration for the play and movie The Sound of Music. She was portrayed as the character "Brigitta." Hedwig was named after her paternal grandmother. Hedwig had brown hair and grey eyes. She grew up in Zell am See during World War I with her siblings: Rupert von Trapp (1911-1992) Agathe von Trapp (1913-2010), Maria Franziska von Trapp (born 1914), Werner von Trapp and Johanna von Trapp (1919-1994). The last sister Martina von Trapp (1921-1951) was born in Klosterneuburg (Austria). The Von Trapp family moved from Zell-am-See to Klosterneuburg, when their home, the lake hotel "Kitzsteinhorn," was flooded.
