Bust "Queen Louise of Prussia"
£43.20 inc. tax

£36.00 ex. tax
? Tax based on United Kingdom.


A sculpture of the upper bust of one of the most famous women in the 18th century.
This bust of Queen Louise of Prussia was made by famous sculpture Johann Gottfried Schadow. The sculpture is a homage to the wife of King Frederick William III whose kind heart and altruistic personality earned her the respect and adoration of the Prussian people. As such, a bust with such intricate details of her head and upper body is the ideal form of reverence to Prussia's Queen Consort who gave her people hope and strength through her actions during the Napoleonic Wars. 


Queen Louise of Prussia

Before Princess Diana, the endearment "Queen of Hearts" was given by a German poet to Queen Louise. She was such a famous and an admired sovereign and political actor during her time that until today she is remembered as the woman who stood up to Napoleon Bonaparte during the Napoleonic Wars. Despite her prominence in the political sphere through supporting her husband, King Frederick William III, she was still a fashion icon and impressed others with her intelligence and charisma. Her tragic death at the young age of 34 caused such grievance among the Prussians and those who knew of her but has also given rise to a huge following of her legacy for the years to come.
