Sangerhausen describes the color of Kaiserin Friedrich as yellow/pink.
Victoria Adelaide Mary Louisa von Sachsen-Coburg und Gotha (November 21, 1840 Buckingham Palace/London - August 5,1901 Schloss Friedrichshof/Kronberg im Taunus) was the eldest child of Queen Victoria and Prince Albert of England. She married 1858 Prince Friedrich Wilhelm Nikolaus Karl, the son of Kaiser Wilhelm I. of Germany. Her husband became Kaiser Friedrich III (see the rose of this name) of Germany on March 9, 1888 on the death of his father. Unfortunately, he died already on June 15, 1888 due to larnyx cancer. Following the death of her husband, Victoria was called "Kaiserin Friedrich".
