Immediately after the battle of Dürnkrut (1278), the Roman King Rudolf von Habsburg moved in with his entourage in Vienna. After he had thanked God in St. Stephen for the victory over the Czech King Przemysl Ottokar, he wanted to receive the homage of the people of Vienna. As he hurried Wenzel against the son of the enemy and later King Wenceslas II. Of Bohemia. He asked for his father's body, which can be seen on the hearse right. Not strange Vienna this was to be buried, but in his hometown of Prague. The presentation is the heroic poem "Rudolf von Habsburg" (published in 1825) were taken that had the then Patriarch of Venice, Ladislaus Pyrker written. Petter, who was then a professor of history painting at the Vienna Academy was created one of his most expressive work with this image. The genre-like view of historical events is otherwise used in any of his works. Noteworthy is the exact reproduction of the facade of the giant gate of St. Stephen's Cathedral. The cloak Rudolf shoulders is the coronation robe that was 1133/1134 made for the Norman King Roger II.. This was part of the vestments of the coronation of kings and emperors of the Holy Roman Empire was used (most recently in 1792 at the coronation of Francis II. [I]). Today it is in the treasury in the Hofburg. [Sabine Grabner 8/2009]
