Help with Photo Identification, Question or Caption
« on: May 09, 2006, 12:43:54 PM »
I am searching this picture of Empress Elizabeth of Austria (Sisi) with her dog Shadow. I only have it in bad quality and only a part of it. Does anybody of you have it or knows in which book it is ? Can anybody post it ? I would be so happy to find it.

Yes, it's new to me too. I read somewhere that she preferred being photographed with dogs, rather than other people! So did her mother. Is this dog called Shadow, or is it a different one? Shadow has a statue at the Emperor's villa in Ischl. There are some nice dogs pictured with the Empress in Andrew Sinclair's 'Death by Fame' (1998). Countess Kleinmichel in her 'Memories of a Shipwrecked World' (1923) has a few pages on the Empress, and recalls going riding with her. She also reproduces that wonderful photo of the Empress on a couch, with Shadow at her feet.

There are a lot of pictures of Elisabeth's mother Ludovica with her dogs. But she was also photographed with her children and grandchildren, especially with her favourite granddaughter Amélie.
Ich aber breite trauernd aus
die weiten weissen Schwingen,
Und kehr' ins Feenreich nach Haus -
Nichts soll mich wieder bringen.

Sisi's mother preferred smaller dogs while Sisi liked bigger ones.  Ludovica would let her dogs come to the dinner table with her too.

The National Photo Archive of the Hungarian National Museum has it, and it was published in 2004, in a volume about the history of colour(ed) photography in Hungary. I'll try to scan it for you.

I once read Empress Elisabeth buried her favorite dog Shadow in the park of Godollo. I wonder if the grave is still there?

Yes, the grave is still there. Sisi buried in Gödöllö two dogs. Here is a picture of the tombstones of Shadow and Plato, the queen's favorite dogs, in the front garden.

You can see today only the tombstone of Shadow. I was in Gödöllö some years ago and saw it.
