Other example of Victorian mourning is the Empress Sissi, who wore black clothes the last nine years of her life, after the daeth of her son,
the Crown Prince Rudolph. She refused to use her jewels and to use dresses of other colors, just in the wedding of Marie Valerie she
accepted to use a light gray one.

I find Post Mortem and "Lit de parade" pictures fascinating, albeit a bit morbid!

I must admit I do too, Kmerov. I think I must have dozens of these postcards, magazine images and cabinet cards. One of the saddest ones, to me, was of Friedrich III. He looked so wasted from his illness compared to what a virile man he had been.

I'm glad that I'm not the only one with this fascination. ;-)
I don't think i have ever seen a post mortem picture of Friedrich III, but I can imagine how he looked after such a long battle. Quite accidentally I just saw a picture of him taken while Emperor and he looked quite distinguished.

Not a photo, but a drawing of Alexander III on "lit de parade."

Thank you for sharing these photo's. In someones eyes it seems morbid, but on the other hand I find it touchy.
