Daisy Beth, who probably became Daisy von Duckenstein in the second half of her life, was a female anthropomorphic duck.
Orphaned at a young age, British-born Daisy Beth became Scrooge von Duck's ward at the turn of the 19th century. In his Bellerive House near Geneva, she met the two boys who would go on to vie for her love, elegant Gladstone Clerval and his cousin, creative and eccentric Victor von Duckenstein.
As the three young persons grew, Daisy seemed to secretly favor Victor's attentions, though she never made that explicit, much to both young men's chagrin. Full of quiet and elegant charm, the clever Miss Beth was an amateur philosopher who liked to muse about the nature of fate and the inevitable, and shared her thoughts — quite unlike his — with Victor.
While Victor was studying in Ingoldstadt, Daisy continued her idle life, waiting for her beloved to return. When Gladstone Clerval proposed to her, she accepted but delayed the wedding, hoping this would be pressure enough for Victor to finally grow up, return to Bellerive, and admit his feelings to her. The plan backfired however, as, coupled with his belief that Growl had died, these news contributed to breaking Victor's heart and spirit.
On the day of Gladstone and Daisy's wedding, fortunately, Wilm, Wolf and Waldo von Duckenstein, together with Growl himself, prevented the ceremony by faking the triplets' kidnapping at the "monsters"’s hands. In the ensuing manhunt, Victor manned up and admitted his feelings to Daisy, later moving to Calisota with her and founding a family. It is hinted that Daisy and Victor became the ancestors of Donald Duck (who, amusingly, would himself become enamored with one Daisy, with a rival named Gladstone to boot).
Behind the scenesEdit
Daisy Beth appears in the 2016 story Duckenstein.
As the story is one of the Grandi Parodie, he is a historical counterpart to a present-day regular — namely, Daisy Duck, though she is still a distinct character in look and personality. As to the "Frankenstein parody" aspect of things, she serves as the story's equivalent to Elizabeth Lavenza, though unlike the original Elizabeth, Daisy survives the events of the story — her murder at the Monster's hand being replaced with the kidnapping of the triplets. This is reminiscent of the 1931 film Frankenstein, where, while the Monster still attempts to kill her, Elizabeth survives and eventually marries the scientist (here named Henry Frankenstein).
