* AmbiguouslyJewish: Not ambiguous enough for 19th century Germany, though. Yes, Mendelssohn was ethnically Jewish, but he was raised without religion and later became Lutheran. He was still the victim of antisemitism, though, and his music was banned by the Nazis.

* CoolBigSis: His older sister Fanny, a talented composer in her own right who was nonetheless discouraged from publishing her works due to her gender. She would often help critique his pieces while he, in turn, published a few of her works under his own name (which led to an incident where he had to admit to UsefulNotes/QueenVictoria that one of her favorite piees of music was written by Fanny, not himself). The two were close and after her death Felix would dedicate his last major work, the ''String Quarted No. 6 in F minor'', to her memory.
