Gil,

with the bit of French that you know I guess you will be able to follow this. And if you don't understand some words look to the Dutch text, because half of the words in English are French and the other halve are Dutch...

I was gobsmacked that you had discerned the bust/waist/hip measurements of the female star in the Brussels film (btw the sight of Manneken Pis being clothed for the holidays particularly amused me). Am I to understand that the figures merely represented the reported time?

Gil,

"I was gobsmacked that you had discerned the bust/waist/hip measurements of the female star in the Brussels film (btw the sight of Manneken Pis being clothed for the holidays particularly amused me). Am I to understand that the figures merely represented the reported time?"

"I was gobsmacked that you had discerned the bust/waist/hip measurements of the female star in the Brussels film"

Gil, Gil, now I had to view the whole 8 minutes again searching for the female star...no I was the first time looking to the clothes and the façades of the houses as we have a house from 1905 with a bit the same front as those of Brussels...and female façades, you know I am always interested, but about females even at my seventies still a lot to learn...if it wasn't of my wife...and as about "her vital statistics"...have to say although I have sometimes to assist to search for clothes and about sizes you have English sizes that correspond with French/Belgian sizes, with German sizes, but from sizes of "cups" that's completely Greek to me...how the ladies discern all that stuff is a mystery to me...I think the best test is to have it on you and to see if it fits...? I heard already about the female vital measurements but nevertheless never seeking what was behind...I mean the measurements...

"Am I to understand that the figures merely represented the reported time?"

The film is from 1910 but the footage is from 1909 and is real Brussels from that year...I suppose Cinematek has added with the computer some additional pictures to have a "normal" speed of motion? And some computer "retouche" for damaged pictures?

Kind regards, Paul.

Apparently the world's oldest known moving film footage, shot in the Leeds garden of Joseph and Sarah Whitley by Louis le Prince - the "Roundhay Garden Scene" - in 1888



And was it cursed? Sarah died a mere ten days after the film was made. Louis le Prince vanished mysteriously from a train in France two years later. His brother Alphonse - the male "lead" in the scene - was shot dead in 1902.

Vizzer, thank you very much for this series. I just saw the first episode. Well made. Even Granada seems to have a BBC tradition of good documentary.
And yes although a Belgian, by my great interest in British historical novels as from WWII and in between the wars, I could understand that many British were proud to belong to the British Empire especially starting from the end of the 19th and beginning of the 20th century.

Kind regards, Paul.

Archduke Franz Ferdinand of Austria was shot on June 28, 1914. Did his demise cause the First World War? What was his funeral like?

The symbolism of the very recent killing of the Russian ambassador to Turkey is somewhat frightening, imo, may we avoid such a bloodshed again.

'What was his funeral like?' ... Well, if you go to youtube.com and type in "franz ferdinand funeral", you'll get several short films ... although most are just replaying much the same limited bit of original footage ... as you well know already, FL, since you've just posted one such clip.

As heir to the Habsburg throne Franz-Ferdinand's funeral was conducted in the classic pre-war, 'Holy-Roman', pan-nationalistic German-Hungarian-Slavic, Imperial, Catholic tradition. I'm really not sure what else you're expecting? And in 1914? .....  Rainbow flags, an assortiment of celebs from stage and (silent) screen, children bizarrely dressed as disney characters maybe, and the whole thing coordinated to rap and avant-guard Japanese pipe music. Something like that perhaps?!?
 
Although admittedly it was a bit of an odd 'do'. The Archduke's widow, Sophie Cochek, who had been killed alongside him in Sarajevo, wasn't actually at her own royal funeral. As a commoner - they were only morganatically married -  she was officially represented at her husband's state funeral solely by a pair of white gloves placed on his coffin (her own coffin was held elsewhere until his funeral was done). But she did finally, although not without considerable royal rancour, get to be buried in the Imperial tomb, but underneath, rather than next to her husband, as they had both originally wanted.



Anyway, much more interesting (imho) is this one ... the funeral of the Emperor Franz Joseph (on 21 Nov 1916). In the middle of the war and with Austria-Hungary already facing military defeat, this might be seen, not just as the funeral of the Emperor himself, but of an entire era:



... Franz-Joseph's funeral film is much, much longer and with a noticeably more military slant than that of his son. One could do a very interesting compare-and-contrast study of those two funerals ... which were just two years apart.

As an addendum - sort of - to MM's message of Dec 22 2016, here is from the funeral of the widow of the successor of Emperor Franz Joseph, Zita on April 01 1989.




I don't know whether her sarcophagus was put beside or beneath her husband, the Emperor Karl.

And as Paul, rightly puts it,
Kind regards from me as well.

While we're on the Hapsburgs, here's the coronation parade of Emperor Karl being crowned King Karl IV of Hungary (Budapest, 30 December 1916):



and here,



... and for completeness here's the funeral (16 July 2011) of Otto von Hapsburg, the son King Karl and Queen Zita, who was four years old when his great-uncle, the Emperor Franz-Joseph died in 1916.



Here's the four year old prince Otto during the 1916 coronation in Budapest ... and he also makes a brief appearance in the above coronation film at about 1:30.

Re the sheer serenity and solemnity of the coronation of the Hungarian parade [not] I failed to view the latter Regent of the Kingdom of Hungary, the Vice Admiral Miklos Horthy - even if Commander-in-Chief of the Austro Hungarian Navy at the time, he may have been seen as of too little importance in Court circles for such an important ceremony.

As for the Austrian ceremonial parade it was a lot more militaristic, as perhaps fitted the capital of an empire at war, even when seen with eyes a 100 years later.

The burial of the private (German!) citizen Karl (von) Habsburg was perhaps that, the last sign of times gone past, and perhaps, never to return.
Even if the name 'Habsburg-Este' has appeared within the present royal family of Belgium.

Nielsen,

"Even if the name 'Habsburg-Este' has appeared within the present royal family of Belgium."

Of course:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Prince_Lorenz_of_Belgium,_Archduke_of_Austria-Este


Am I right, while it is still the Salian law, that some couple of the five children have to have a manly heir before the "house" can further proceed Wink ? Or is that already as in Belgium that even a Astrid (wife of Lorenz) can heir the title of the house? How is it in Denmark?

And while I am with you, Nielsen...since years I presume that you understand German...as in my experience many Danes speak and understand German (although I have to admit, mostly elder ones)...if you understand German you can follow the documentary that I yesterday put on this forum?

Kind regards from your friend Paul.

Paul,

Some variations of the Salic Law are in existence, mostly in Europe again mostly within the areas of the former Holy Roman Empire of German Nation - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Salic_law#Other_European_applications and lasting long after that entity had passed.

I am currently not aware of the situation in Belgium, but in Denmark, until Absolutism was introduced in 1660, the office of King was an elected post, even if always - since Gorm the Old reigning from c.  936 to his death c.  958, with exception of a few interregnums (interregni?) - within the same family.
Salic Law was introduced into the dual monarchy of Denmark-Norway lasting a 104 years longer than Absolutism, it being replaced by a variation in 1953, when the then King Frederick IX had three daughters and no sons, so these daughters took precedence over the King's brother and his sons.
The Danish Act of Succession - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Danish_Act_of_Succession -  was changed following a plebiscite in 2009, so presently it's a simple matter of the Sovereign's eldest child becoming the new Monarch upon vacancy of the throne.

And you're quite right, as I had a fairly good basic grounding in German at primary school, and as I now listen to German radio every day I do lay claim to understanding spoken German and some ability to speak it - as you say I am quite elderly - so yes, I did watch the documentary on Berlin in 1900.

Kind regards back, as well my best wishes for a Happy New Year for you and your family, from this friend of yours

Thanks Per for this rapid reply.

And indeed the Salian law is now I see abolished in Denmark as in Belgium.

Now that I know that you understand German... Wink
if I have something in German... Wink

But I didn't mean the Berlin 1900 but the more difficult documentary about the white mummies in the Chinese Sinkiang desert from the Celtic culture...

Kind regards from your friend Paul.

Thanks for that one Paul.

Having walked in exactly some of those people's footsteps ... in particular along the Unter den Linden up to the Brandenburg Gate - I was there before The Wall had fallen and so it was still a leafy route with very little traffic, and so very like in about 1900 - I found it very poignant to reflect on all the pomp, parades, and pandemonium that have passed there in just the last one hundred years.

But I do have to just mention that, in the footage, something very odd occurs at about the 3mins mark. Suddenly all the right-hand driving trams, and single deck autobuses ... change to London, double-deck buses driving on the left (one bus even has an advert for "Hudsons" on the side). And at 3:25mins I'm sure that is St Martin in the Fields church in Trafalgar Square, London, and so Nelson's Column is just out of side to the right, ... while Berlin would be about 1000km away further East. There's a Berlin 1900 part 2 youtube as well ... and while it interestingly depicts footage of the Kaiser, a ball on board the royal yacht 'Standardt', and numerous pickelhaube-wearing soldiers ... it also bizarrely has a few seconds of a British policeman watching while children buy refreshments clearly advertised, in English: "rice pudding"; "ginger pudding" etc ... so I do wonder just how much might actually be from outside Berlin.

However just for information - since there is no narrative with that Berlin 1900 film - the footage from about 3:30mins depicts the 1913 state visit of King George V to Germany. In the open carriage, King George is sat on the right with the Kaiser to his left. I think George is wearing a German uniform as he'd just been made an honourary Colonel or something like that ... so both of them still playing at soldiers right up to the last months of peace.

Regards, MM

PS - Archduke of Austria-Este? Isn't that tautology: Archduke of the-East-of-the-East-of the-Kingdom?

Ah but hang on ... it's me being the dumbo . It's "Este" not "Est" so it's actually a territory in it's own right (Este is somewhere in northern Italy I think).

In the same vein as Paul's 'Berlin in 1900 in colour', there are also these two...

Berlin in 1936:


.... oh the bitter irony of that clip of a squad of schoolboys in Hitler youth uniforms meekly crossing the street, with the voice-over:
"Die Jugend maschiert für den Führer im Glauben an eine bessere Zukunft" -
"The youth marches for the Führer in the belief of a better future."




Berlin in July 1945:



The second is re-coloured but I think the first might be original colour footage.

MM,

According to the (hardly) never failing wiki, Este can be either or both, a comune in present days North Eastern Italy, or a princely Italian family which then even if close to the Papal States was within the familar/family sphere of influence of the Habsburgs.

Regarding the sequences of Berlin, the one from 1936 surprised me positively when the speaker used a moderate voice, and not the sonorous tones often heard from dictatorships, even News from present days N Korea, which still make me giggle by its sheer ridiculousness.
Equally I was positively surprised by the dance music and dancers relayed as influenced by jazz - until realizing that this was part of the propaganda up to and during the Olympic Games ...

The 1945 one was obviously again showing the major streets - Paradestrassen - already having been cleared, and relatively many bikes, apparently in civilian German use.
As an aside I was reminded of having heard, that when the Nazi-German armed forces retired from the Netherlands they stole a lot of push-bikes, leading to, when Dutch Princess Beatrix married Claus von Amsberg in 1966, demonstrators shouted "Mijn fiets terug" (Bring back my bike).

Of course you are right...if you can't trust the ZDF (and ARD, somewhat the BBC from Germany), even I recognize London while I was there many times too. Ah, those "perfidious" Germans and they once blamed the British...

"Chapeau" Meles meles for your attention in looking to that footage and thanks for the two new youtubes about Berlin.

Kind regards, Paul.
