Maria Theresia fearlessly celebrated the victory over enemy troops when they were chased out of Bohemia. Alongside the other ladies of her court, Maria Theresia travelled the streets of Vienna on a sophisticated and elegant ladies' carousel. Among them, only the Golden Carriage of Maria Theresia has stood the test of time and is now preserved in the Imperial Carriage Museum Vienna. 

The Child’s Phaeton of Napoleon’s Son

The Black Hearse of the Viennese Court

Also known as the Imperial Hearse, the black hearse of the Viennese court was a distinctive ceremonial carriage which was mainly used for state and royal funerals under the Habsburg rule and later, in the Austro-Hungarian Empire. Intricately designed and adorned with mourning symbols, the carriage was used to transport the coffins of the deceased high-ranking officials and members of the imperial family.

The Personal Landaulet of Empress Elisabeth

The Imperial College is home to the exquisite and graceful personal Landaulet of Empress Elisabeth.
