Empress of Austria and Queen of Hungary as wife of Emperor Franz Joseph I, known for her obsessive concern with her health and beauty (1837–1898). Manuscript DS in French, signed “Elisabeth,” one page both sides, 4 x 3.25, November 17, 1855. Document confirming receipt of her monthly apanage of 8333 guilders and 20 kreuzers [her allowance for November, out of a guaranteed yearly amount of 100,000 guilders] from the Imperial Court’s Disbursement Bureau, signed on the reverse by Empress Elisabeth. In fine condition, with light soiling and tack holes to one corner. These funds—essentially the Empress’s allowance for her private expenditures—were an explicit part of her marriage contract with Franz Joseph. A particularly early example, signed just a year and a half after the royal wedding. Pre-certified PSA/DNA.
