The Empress-Dowager Victoria of Germany.

From s sketch made by the late E. M. Ward, R.A., at the time of her Marriage.

The tragic reign of the Emperor Frederick, so brief and suffering, and yet so full of pathos and true greatness, has spoken poerfully to the universal sympathies of humanity. Courage and devotion to duty have seldom more nobly encountered adversity in its sternest shape.


But our rhoughts in this hour of national loss cluster even more thickly round her upon whom the blow has fallen with the greatest weight. Our Princess Royal, our beloved Queen’s eldest child, is made a widow in the prime of her life. “The light of her home is darkened; the fireside warmth of her heart is quenched in cold ashes.” All England has but one heart to pray that the God of all comfort may be with the bereaved, and manifest Himself fully to her as the Father of the fatherless and the God of the widow. (p. 171)

Victoria, Princess Royal, was the eldest child of Queen Victoria of England. The event described here is the death of her husband Prince Frederick of Prussia in 1888.
