Black mourning dress reached its peak during the reign of Queen Victoria (1819-1901) of the United Kingdom in the second half of the 19th century. Queen Victoria wore mourning from the death of her husband, Prince Albert (1819-1861), until her own death. With these standards in place, it was considered a social requisite to don black from anywhere between three months to two and a half years while grieving for a loved one or monarch. The stringent social custom existed for all classes.

8. The Dog Collar Necklace: This is a photo of Queen Alexandra the Princess of Wales from ca. 1882. She often wore a dog collar necklace to hide a scar on her neck. The dog collar was simply an elaborate choker seen in various styles: thick ribbon, multiple thinner ribbons, metalwork, and pearls. It was fitted to the neck and was often worn with other neck ornaments of different lengths.
Alexandra of Denmark, the Queen Consort of Edward VII. She nearly always wore a 'dog collar' choker necklace or a necklace on a band of velvet, as in this photo, to hide a scar on her neck.

Jeanette "Jennie" Jerome (1854-1921) was one of three pretty daughters of financier Leonard Jerome and his wife Clara. She married Lord Randolph Churchill, second son of the Duke of Marlborough. She had two children, Winston Churchill, the future prime minister, and John. She had many affairs during her marriage, including with King Edward VII. After her husband died, she married a man as young as her sons, which was very shocking for the time. She subsequently married an even younger man. It's been said W. Churchill was bipolar. Look at his mother.

Titanic Survivors Louis & Lola (last name unknown) April, 1912
History, Vintage Photos, Titanic Survivor, Edmonds Navratil, Sue, Children, Rms Titanic, Fathers, Titanic Orphan
The little boys in the photograph hardly look like shipwreck survivors in their clean playclothes, one holding a stuffed cat, the other a ball. The caption above their heads hints at the rest of the story: Louis and Lola ? – Titanic survivors. The names were a guess, given by very young children who spoke only French. It soon became clear the man who had handed them into the last lifeboat was their father, and that he was one of over 1,500 victims as the Titanic sank into the North Atlantic on April 15, 1912. Newspapers picked up the story of the apparent orphans, with numerous articles looking for answers and hopefully, family. At the same time, in Nice, France, a woman was searching for her two sons, spirited away by her estranged husband weeks before. When news accounts reached her about the ‘Titanic orphans,‘ she thought they might be her boys, an ocean away. She described them in detail, sent questions only they could answer, and it was confirmed. These were her sons, Michel, 4 and Edmond, 2. Their father had traveled under an assumed name with the boys, fatefully choosing the Titanic as their getaway ship. Soon, Mme. Marcelle Navratil steamed across the Atlantic to America to find her sons, and by May 1912, they were reunited. For a sad time in the world, it was that rarest of things: a happy ending.
Love Titanic history. "Louis and Lola" were actually two little boys, Edmond and Michel Navratil. They were the "Titanic Orphans," the only children rescued with no parent or guardian. When the Titanic sunk, their father had been in the process of fleeing Europe with the boys, stealing them from their mother, who had full custody of them. Their dad put them on the last successfully launched lifeboat. Their mother found them through newspaper accounts of their story. Michel was one of the last living survivors.
New York. April 22, 1912. "Titanic survivors." Brothers Michel ("Lolo") and Edmond Navratil, ages 4 and 2, whose father perished when the RMS Titanic sank and were known as the "Titanic orphans" until their mother was located in France.
