August Victoria was the eldest daughter of Frederick VIII, Duke of Schleswig-Holstein-Sonderburg-Augustenburg. She was born on 22 October 1858, married Wilhelm II in February 1881, and died on 11 April 1921.
The back-label title is simply EMPRESS OF GERMANY, and it was first included on label 31+29a of 1895. Like most Stevens portrait silks of Continental personages, this subject is now extremely rare.
Within the narrative, Godden notes that this portrait is recorded as facing both right and left - as shown above
