August 31, 1903
King Edward VII arrived today in Vienna from Marienbad, where "an enthusiastic reception was accorded him," according to the New York Times. Kaiser Franz Joseph, wearing the uniform of a British Dragoon Guards, accompanied several Archdukes and other nobles, greeted the British king at the railroad station. King Edward arrived at 5 p.m.
Their Majesties were driven to the Hofburg in a landau driven by six horses. "Immense" crowds lined the route toward the Hofburg.
After Edward had retired to his private apartment, he was officially visited by the Austrian emperor. In the evening, the king was the guest of honor at a state banquet. All of the archdukes and archduchesses were in attendances. In a speech, King Edward "expressed his thanks for the friendly sentiments expressed toward him."
