The Empress

Die Kaiserinn.

Gradientes in superbia potest Deus humiliare. — Danie iiii.

THE EMPRESS.
The Empress, walking with her women, is intercepted by a female Death, who conducts her to an open grave.

Qui marchez en pompe superbe

La Mort vng iour uous pliera.

Cõme soubz uoz piedz ployez l’herbe

Ainsi uous humiliera.
