Summary Note

The work describes imperial or royal sceptres, diadems and crowns, orbs and robes kept at the Schatzkammer, Vienna, and elsewhere. The forms of these regalia derive from those of the court of Charlemagne, first emperor of the renewed western Roman Empire, and ultimately from the insignia and ceremonial used by Roman emperors at Constantinople.
