The occupation of masters of ceremonies was to keep in mind the numerous details of court etiquette, starting from the number and style of buckles on shoes and bows in hairstyles up to the ceremony of guests reception.

Precise rules governed the procedure to be adopted at the imperial court of Emperor Napoleon I of the French in Paris. When Emperor Napoleon and Empress Josephine ate in public the Grand Chamberlain proffered a basin for the Emperor to wash his hands.

AUSTRIA When the Emperor of Austria appeared in person, but also even if merely his name was uttered at public ceremonies, he was due the tiefe Reverentz (Spanish reverence). As a symbol of submission before His Imperial Majesty, courtiers made a deep bow on bended knee.

All activities at the Russian Imperial Court, including receptions, state banquets, balls, hunting parties, were governed by strict protocols. The foundations for these were laid down by Tsar Peter I in 1772. Peter published a Table of Ranks, an official list of military, civil, and court ranks and classes in Russia which established the hierarchy at court.

King Edward VII of Great Britain was unwilling to let Queen Alexandra play an important part in the ceremonial duties of the monarchy or to attend official functions without him. He insisted such work was his responsibility.

Etiquette at the court of Queen Margaret of Anjou, the spouse of King Henry VI of England, was rigorously formal. Duchesses, and even princes of the blood, were obliged to approach the Queen on their knees.

Etiquette at the Austrian Imperial Court was extremely strict. Do you believe if Empress Elisabeth had had a lot of teaching about the imperial etiquette, she would have felt more at ease?

Probably. I think Elisabeth honestly tried to fit in during the first years of the marriage. However for the court it was never enough.

Also the bad relationship with AD Sophie didn't help either. Sophie certainly meant well, but she was from a different generation and both didn't understand eachother very well.

Elisabeth certainly was quite stubborn too and she never quite understood/didn't want to understand the duties of an Empress. In later years it was all about her and her needs really.

She grew up with it.  FJ was her first cousin.  I think there was a bit of "I'm the empress, I can do what I want" going on, especially with her mother-in-law who was also her maternal aunt.  Elisabeth kept knocking up against "this is how we've always done it and this is how it will always be done" until she couldn't stand it any more.

A Royal Christmas is fictitious. However, there is a lesson to be learned. What does the young American lady Emily Taylor  know about the proper etiquette of a royal court? Victor the butler teaches her how to greet nobility, how to dance elegantly, and other protocol.

Sophie, Duchess of Hohenberg was the morganatic wife of Archduke Francis Ferdinand of Austria. She was barred from the imperial box at the theatre, opera, ballet, and the symphony. She was denied a court carriage and could not ride with her husband.

Even the coffins where placed on two different heights, when being brought back from Sarajevo.

FF knew that Sophie would never be allowed to be buried with him in the Kapuzinergruft. That's why in the bought a castle called Artstetten, where both found their last rest. The castle is now operated by their descendant Anita Hohenberg.

Amazing how the concept of royalty affects even the smallest detail.  Including coffin height. SMH
