Topic: Nicholas II
Members of the Russian Imperial family join members of the Danish, Greek and British royal houses at Bernstoff Castle, Denmark in 1899.
This rare vintage film clip shows Emperor Nicholas II, relaxed in civilian attire enjoying himself immensely with other members of his family and his royal relations. We even see the Empress Alexandra Feodorovna laughing while standing next to her smiling mother-in-law, the Dowager Empress Maria Feodorovna.
The newsreel was filmed by Peter Elfelt, who was appointed Royal Court Photographer to the Danish Royal family in 1901. During his career he produced more than 200 films and newsreels, including many about the Danish Royal family.
