I have put here an old film with Tsar Nicholas II of Russia during a visit in Denmark to King Christian IX, his grandfather, in 1901. They had the tradition of gathering in September to celebrate Queen Louise’s birthday, a tradition that continued even after her death in 1898. Parades and military processions were part of the festivities. Official photographer Peter Elfelt captured these early days of autumn 1901 on film.
