Comments: Schönbrunn wanted the Norwegian Nobel Committee to bestow an honorary peace award on Czar Nikolai II of Russia for his initiative that resulted in the 1899 Hague Peace Conference. In addition, Schönbrunn wished that the Nobel Committee would divide the prize money between some worthy peace workers, namely William Randal Cremer, Frédéric Passy and Bertha von Suttner. Lange did not include this nomination among the official nominations. However, Schönbrunn was a memeber of the Arbitraion Court at the Hague and he was thereby entitled to nominate a candidate for the peace prize.
