Photograph of a sketch drawn by Queen Victoria in her journal after watching a production of THE CORSICAN BROTHERS. It shows the death scene of Louis dei Franchi.

She wrote the name, "Louis" under the prone character and "Chateau Renaud" under his figure. She also notes some dates, possibly those of the productions she saw, "Feb ; 28 - March 23 - Ap ; 19". The photograph also shows a royal crest stamped on the right hand side.
