Study for 'The Distribution of the Eagle Standards', c1808, (1921). Creator: Jacques-Louis David

Study for 'The Distribution of the Eagle Standards', c1808, (1921). 'La distribution des aigles au Champ-de-Mars'. Emperor Napoleon I (1769-1821) distributes 'eagles' based on the Roman aquila of the legions of Rome, as the winged figure of Nike, the goddess of victory, floats over the troops. The standards represented the regiments raised by the various departments of France. Preliminary sketch for a painting titled 'Serment de l'armee fait a l'empereur apres la distribution des aigles au champ de Mars, 5 decembre 1804', (Oath of the army made to the emperor after the distribution of the eagles at the field of Mars, 5 December 1804). Painted in 1810 by Jacques-Louis David, the scene is a military ceremony arranged by Napoleon after his assumption of power as Emperor of the French, in which he sought to revive the military ethos and pageantry of the Roman Empire. From "Napoleon", by Raymond Guyot, [H. Floury, Paris, 1921]

'The Ceremony at St. Paul's', London, 1897. Artist: E&S Woodbury

'The Ceremony at St. Paul's', London, 1897. 'The photograph was taken immediately after the conclusion of the Service, when Her Majesty (whose face is clearly seen) turned to receive the congratulations of the Prince of Wales and the Duke of Cambridge. The latter is in the act of addressing the Queen: the Prince is close behind him. The Princess of Wales and Princess Christian are the other occupants of the carriage; the latter holds her fan to screen her face from the sun. The Archbishop of Canterbury (Dr. Temple) stands directly above the Queen.' Queen Victoria (1819-1901) celebrated her Diamond Jubilee (60th anniversary of her reign - June 1837-June 1897). Her reign of 63 years and seven months was longer than that of any previous British monarch. Here her carriage is seen outside St Paul's Cathedral.

'Arrival of the Canadian Premier (The Hon. Wilfrid Laurier) at Hyde Park Corner', 1897

'The Colonial Procession: Arrival of the Canadian Premier (The Hon. Wilfrid Laurier) at Hyde Park Corner', 1897. 'The Canadian premier's carriage was preceded by Canadian troops, and followed by the New South Wales Rifles and Lancers. The Procession is just emerging from Constitution Hill by the great gates of the Arch which are opened only for Royalty. The crowd at this point was, perhaps, the biggest on the route, and stretched away down Grosvenor Place, down Knightsbridge, into Hyde Park (there were thousands of people in the Park who had given up all hope of seeing the Procession, and choked all the streets leading into Piccadilly.' From Sixty Years A Queen: The Story of Her Majesty's Reign, by Sir Herbert Maxwell. [Harmsworth Bros, Limited, London, c1897]
