How It's Done: Requiem for a Catholic Monarch

From November 28-29, 1916 the coffin of Franz Joseph laid here in state inside the private chapel of the Hofburg Palace.

Notice around the coffin are laid reproductions of the crowns of the Hapsburg kingdoms along with collars of the imperial orders and even the Emperor's general's cap, arranged on cushions.

  1. Those crowns aren't reproductions. They are the actual crowns!
