Memory Monday (Surviving Pre Revolution Portraits of Emperor Christian of Scot-Britania)

Since most of the photographic records of Imperial Scot-Britania were destroyed during the 96 Revolution obviously very few photographs of Emperor Christian exist today. However some did escape the destruction and have been published on this blog. We also have the odd never-before-seen photo pop up from under the cracks every once in a while. Today we will list the photos we have published along with a miracle find of another over looked archive portrait that was never even released to the public in the days of the short lived Empire.

This is one of many photos that still exist today due to the fact that copies were kept by the Swanobian Royal family. They depict the wedding of Empress Crystobel and Emperor Christian of Scot-Britania a few years before the establishment of the United Empire.

This photo is the only known to exist depicting the bride and groom (or anybody else for that matter) at the reception of the aforementioned wedding. 

This photo of the Emperor and Empress of the United Empire was a casual one taken by a friend of Empress Crystobel using a pocket camera. It is the only record of the fateful night in 1996 when the Bloody Revolution began with a missile strike on Roswind Castle.

This, never before published photo of Emperor Christian, was recently found in the Britanian Governmental Archives. It seemingly fell behind stacks of other files and remained there till now. Due to the ban on Royalty being lifted, the law does not require its destruction and it has found its way onto the internet as a historic find of great value. The photo depicts the young Emperor in what obviously was a pre-coronation official photo. He stands next to the Imperial Canon that was re-Christened as such to serve as the ceremonial canon for the new Empire. The original Royal Britanian Ceremonial Gun was ordered for King George V of Britania's Coronation in the early 1900's in Reichenthal. It recently served as the Gun Carriage carrying the coffin of Empress Crystobel.

  2. I love the photo of the Gun Carriage. It is very formal and creates that austere, formal and military feel that befits a Prince of the Realm.
