Mrs Von Drake née Gadwall, sometimes known within the fandom as Lucinda Von Drake, is a female anthropomorphic duck.


Mrs Von Drake is the hot-tempered no-nonsense sister of Gertrude Gadwall and Grandma Duck's aunt. Living in Calisota despite her Austrian origins, Mrs Von Drake married a young Humperdink Duck, with whom she had at least two son (one named Ludwig, another whose name is unknown), and possibly a third one, who may have been Otto Duck. She moved back with him to Vienna where she finished to raise Ludwig.

Both eventually moved back to America in 1961. By 1999, Ludwig and his bossy mother were living together in a Duckburg house. However, by 2008, she was again living in Austria. From there, she would send Ludwig a pre-made wiener schnitzel each week, about which he said that if he didn't get it every week, he would have to go back to Austria "and mother!".

Behind the scenes

Mrs Von Drake, after being mentioned in the 1961 Barn Dance Doctor (and in the German translation of Duckburg, U.S.A.; there is some debate on whether this was the case in the original version), made an actual appearance, albeit on-screen in the 2001 TV series House of Mouse, where she'd often embarrassingly call her son on the phone whilst he was in the middle of a lecture.
