POSTCARD – KAISERIN FRIEDRICH (VICTORIA)
The Kaiserin Friedrich (1840-1901), as she was known after her husband, Kaiser Friedrich III’s [1831-1888] death, was Queen Victoria’s only daughter and namesake, Victoria. A Princess Royal of England, she married Friedrich when he was Prussia’s Kronprinz. Upon his father Wilhelm I’s death, Friedrich III assumed the throne for a mere ninety-nine days before he also died. He was succeeded by his eldest son, who became Kaiser Wilhelm II. This postcard, which has a message written on its obverse, depicts the Kaiserin. The postcard was mailed in 1901, her death year.
This is a fine color postcard of Kaiser Wilhelm I. It commemorates the 100th anniversary of his birth (1797-1897). To the left, Wilhelm I appears in a Küraßier’s uniform. To the right, we see his place in Berlin.
I'm Kenneth (Ken) J. Greenfield, currently of New Port Richey, Florida, located on the West Coast of Florida in the Tampa Bay area. I started out as a collector of Imperial German Militaria, particularly items dealing with the Imperial German Air Service in the early 1960's. After more than forty years of avid collecting, I began to sell a few items to upgrade my collection and help finance my collecting "habit." I attended militaria shows, both to buy and sell. I wanted to spend more time at home and less traveling for the national companies that I had worked for; so, starting my own business seemed like an attractive alternative. I like nothing better than talking with others about militaria, and introducing newcomers to the joys of owning a "piece of history."
