Translation Info  
Notes This plate book commemorates the crowning of Austrian empress Maria Theresa in 1740. It was probably given later as a gift to those in attendance at the banquet. She was the only female monarch of the Habsburg dynasty, and also its last ruler--with her son’s succession to the throne, the dynasty became styled Habsburg-Lorraine.
