Another view (with detail) of Archduke Franz Ferdinand and his wife, Duchess Sophie, lying in state after their assassinations. (This photo, taken from the Duchess’ vantage point, is very rare - I think it was published for the first time in an English-language book only a few years ago. Note that the coffins are resting on the floor; the photograph was taken before the formal lying-in-state.) The Duchess, a Catholic, is holding a rosary in her white-gloved hands and wearing a high-necked white silk and lace gown; the bouquet given to her shortly before her murder can be seen lying next to her body. White silk shrouds are draped over the lower halves of hers and the Archduke’s coffins. One other interesting detail is that the coffins the bodies were placed in at Sarajevo were actually the same size; as the accounts of the funeral ceremonies at Vienna have the Duchess’ coffin being smaller than that of her husband, it appears that Prince Montenuovo (a world-class jerk, if you ask me; he was behind the lion’s share of the slights poor Sophie suffered all through her marriage) directed that her body be transferred to a smaller coffin. Which makes me hot under the collar. >:(
