Another statue, this time in Funchal, capital of Madeira, where her grand-nephew Karl died and is buried.

Sissi stayed several times in Madeira.

Today Madeira was hit by a tremendous tempest that caused much devastation and, so far, 25 people are reported killed.
RIP

The devastation in Madeira is higher than expected.

You've probably seen the mudslides that swept Funchal downtown (the island's capital) and other towns and villages.

Official records speak of 48 people killed but there are many more missing that could be buried under the mud, rocks and branches or were carried to the sea.

A huge tragedy.

 She was a real beauty with long, long hair.... a brilliant horsewoman....
 she was  perhaps the biggest "Royal Star "in the Victorian era.
Maybe Empress Elizabeth and  Princess Alexandra of Denmark were the two
outstanding beauties back then .....
In fact they did meet up to,  when Alexandra  stopped off in Vienna  en route to a
holiday in Egypt.
Perhaps they also met up on one of  Elizabeths visits to England ?

I had seen this picture in black and white in the Preussischer Bildarchiv. In colour is much better  :)

I haven't seen that painting before, it's beautiful, but the style is different than in the majority of her portraits. It made me to remember her sisters

Again the Thurn und Taxis auction. I think Albert, her nephew, owned it.

YES those collages are brilliant and must have taken a lot of
work and effort to do.
I dare say all the furniture, clothes and shoes are of the period .

The angels are just angels full of sadness because Rudolph `s death. Rudolphs is of course the gent in the coffin and its an allegory about his death (funeral)
