The coronation of a new emperor marks a distinctive moment in history. On 9 October 1790 Leopold II. ascended the throne. This special occasion brought together not only the highest representatives of aristocracy in Frankfurt, but also close to 25,000 visitors resided in that city which was about to offer a spectacle of considerable magnitude. You had to participate if you wanted to draw attention to yourself in high society.
Wolfgang Amadé Mozart was also one of the visitors. On 28 September 1790, the composer told his wife about his journey from Vienna to Frankfurt which took six days. The cities of Regensburg, Nürnberg and Würzburg belonged to the places where he stopped over. The lively descriptions render an authentic insight into the biography of Mozart in his later years.
