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

It's been said that the Oberhofmeister Alfred von Montenuovo (a descendant of Empress Marie Louise through her morganatic marriage to Count Neipperg) took it out on them, because as descendant of a Habsburg Princess he was even worth less than a mere countess.

Emperor Napoleon I of France initiated a regular schedule of receptions for ambassadors, senators, generals, and other dignitaries. Every two weeks a grand parade of troops took place.

German Imperial Court etiquette required that a man invited to a luncheon at the Emperor's Imperial Palace must wear a special white tie and a frock coat.       
When the Emperor and Empress entered, all rose to their feet in silence. They remained standing until their imperial host permitted them to resume their seats by a wave of the hand.

Amelie (Amelia) of Leuchtenberg (1812-1873) was Empress of Brazil as the second wife of Pedro I of Brazil. Upon settling into the imperial palace, Amelie established French as the court language and adopted a ceremonial modeled after European courts.

During King Edward IV of England's reign, The Black Book of the Household was drawn up. The book described the rights and duties of all members of the royal household.   
The book also described the details of ceremonial to be observed at court. King Edward had this book compiled so economies would be imposed and wastefulness would be curbed.

When King Philip V of Spain's first wife, Queen Marie Louise was dying, the doctors filed past her and examined her from a distance. Court and royal etiquette forbade them to touch the Queen.

She might have been lucky they didn't touch her.  In the early 1700s, medical science hadn't yet worked out that disease could be spread by hand contact and doctors wouldn't start washing their hands between patients till the mid 19th century.

Countess Sophie Chotek, the wife of Archduke Francis Ferdinand of Austria, had to walk behind the least important ladies of royal blood and to sit at a distant end of the Imperial table.
