Beds that were made in the 19th and early 20th century in Europe were were not made in standard sizes that fit today's modern mattress measurement.  When you look at the interior measurements of the bed and compare that to modern mattresses sizes it's usually possible to see which modern mattress is the best fit.  Of course, it is also possible to order custom mattresses, some are very inexpensive depending on the material used.  If the mattress is a bit too long for the bed the people often times do not use the side rails.  Rather they get a $50  metal bed frame for the mattress size they want.  It sits on the floor and connects to the headboard and footboard.  This is probably better since today's box spring and mattress can be quite heavy and the bedframe supports the weight instead of the bed itself.
Listed below are the mattress sizes.
