Napoleon and Queen Louise in Tilsit (July 1807) Sovetsk (former Tilsit), 1963 - The picture shows Napoleon Bonaparte (1769-1821) meeting the Queen of Prussia, Louise of Mecklenburg-Strelitz (1776-1810) on the 6th of July 1807 in Sovetsk, where Napoleon I stayed during the peace negotiations with the Kingdom of Prussia and Russia. You can see the Queen with dressed in a white silver laced robe. On her right you can see the foreign minister Carl August von Hardenberg, who briefed her prior to the negotiations. Napoleon greets her by taking her hand and pulling of his hat. Unless personally Napoleon and Louise took to each other (as you can see by their gestures and facial expressions) the conditions for the peace treaty of Tilsit on the 9th of July 1807 resulted to be very hard for the Prussian Kingdom.
