The album of 112 albumen cartes-de-visite and one cabinet card features portraits of Emperor Maximilian, Empress Carlota, and Napoleon III, as well as other key figures in the period known as the French intervention in Mexico (1861-1867) when the French invaded Mexico and ultimately installed Ferdinand Maximilian Archduke of Austria as Maximilian I Emperor of Mexico. Many portraits are of French and Mexican political and military leaders such as General Élie Frédéric Forey, the original commanding general of the French expeditionary corps to Mexico and his successor, Marshall Achille Bazaine; and Generals Miguel Negrete, a hero of the first Battle of Puebla and Jesús González Ortega, who played a key role in the second battle of Puebla.
Mexican heads of state depicted include Agustín de Iturbide I, Emperor of Mexico and seven presidents: Antonio López de Santa Anna; José Mariano de Salas; Mariano Arista; Juan Álvarez; Ignacio Commonfort; Miguel Miramón; and Benito Juárez. Photographic reproductions of portraits of figures related to the first Mexican Empire and the Mexican War of Independence include Miguel Hidalgo y Costilla; Agustín de Iturbide; José María Morelos; and Vicente Guerrero.
Other portraits are of diplomats to Mexico from Austria, England, Spain, and Belgium. Members of the Maximilan's court and Mexican elites are also represented.

When the French army withdrew from Mexico in 1867, Maximilian garrisoned himself and his followers in Querétaro. After the city fell to republican troops he was captured and eventually executed by firing squad on June 19 in the Cerro de las Campanas. Although close access to the execution was not permitted, one of Franois Aubert's studio operatives photographed Maximilian's bullet-riddled clothing, Maximilian in his coffin, the members of the firing squad, and views of the execution site as well as views of Queretaro associated with Maximilian. Aubert, in accordance with the prevailing studio practices of the time, took credit for the photographs. The images circulated widely in cartes-de-visite bearing the imprint of numerous Mexican and European photographers.
