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.
