Mostly Monarchs: Royal Relics at The Rosenbach | Behind the Bookcase tour (in-person)
Sun, October 2, 2022 2:00 P.M.
Put on your crown and come to The Rosenbach for a close look at some of the many royal relics in our collection. You will view and even handle documents written and signed by some of history’s most legendary queens—Elizabeth I of England, Mary Queen of Scots, and Queen Victoria—as well as other notable royals, including James I of England and Scotland. Examine letters written and signed by Marie de Medici and Louis XIV of France. Hold a book that Britain’s Queen Victoria presented to the 7-year-old Count of Paris. Touch a walking stick Marie Antoinette once owned, examine a Bonaparte family tiara set with semiprecious jewels, and delve into the complex dynastic origins of World War I by means of Habsburg family letters and an artifact from Archduke Franz Ferdinand’s pocket. Get up close and personal with some of Europe’s most famous and notorious monarchs.
