RAO2 for Rudolf Virchow, famous physician and biologist

Recommended Posts

Dear fellow collectors

Netflix has recently released a new series called 'Charité', it's about the famous Berlin hospital, which is still in use today. It plays in the Dreikaiserjahr 1888. The second episode has a few shots of Rudolf Virchow (played by Ernst Stötzner) received the order of the red eagle 2nd class, given to him personally by the new emperor Friedrich. Is there any actual evidence of him receiving the order? I would also like to know how many (if any at all) awarding ceremonies took place during his 99-day reign as monarch due to his illnes.

Kind regards and thanks in advance, Laurentius

There were awards in his short reign. Virchow got the Red Eagle Order 2nd class with star and oak leafes on 19th of May 1888.
