Elisabeth, Queen of Hungary - May 27, 2010

Elisabeth of Austria when she was crowned Queen of Hungary on June 8, 1867 at the age of 29. The coronation dress was on display in the Imperial Appartments in the Hofburg (city palace) of Vienna. Elisabeth was a very tiny person and to wear such an outfit must have been very stressful. I can only imagine the weight of all the finery!
