==Description==
 
==Description==
Apparently born in 1818, Hortensia was the grandmother of [[Elvira Duck]]. She and her [[Grandpa Gadwall|husband]] had a very active part in raising their grandchildren, children of their [[Gertrude Gadwall|daughter]]. It even seems that, by her teenage and young adult years, Elvira was living and working on Hortensia's farm.<ref>''[[The Grandma Duck Story]]''</ref> Many years later, Elvira would often tell stories of Hortensia, whom, in her own time, she came to greatly resemble.

It is known that one of [[Elvira Duck|Elvira]]'s grandmothers, [[Miranda]], was captured by a Native American tribe in her youth and stayed with them until she was rescued by her future husband.<ref>''[[Grandma Duck's Grandma]]''</ref> Whether this Miranda is the same character as Hortensia is unknown.

It can be assumed that she is Elvira's maternal grandmother, and thus, a Gadwall.
