than 100. However, in the end his ideas for these projects were refused. At the same time, Gorgolewski was awarded with the construction of Kaiser Wilhelm's Bridge. Other, more successful, projects include the plans of refurbishment of royal palaces in Berlin and Kiel, expansion of University Hospitals in Halle and Bonn, expansion of Bad Oeynhausen spa in Westphalia (Province of Westphalia). In addition, he was the main architect of the Protestant cathedral in Berlin, Belle Vue (Belle Vue (Palace)) palace, courthouses in Opole (Oppeln) (Opole) and Olsztyn (Allenstein) (Olsztyn), as well as prisons in Świdnica (Schweidnitz) (Świdnica) and Chorzów (Königshütte) (Chorzów). Childhood Frankenthal was born into a family of prominent Jewish butchers in Schmallenberg, Province of Westphalia. In the Frankenthal home the Jewish religion was strictly followed mainly due to the Orthodox Jewish (Orthodox Judaism) traditions of Frankenthal's mother, Adele Frankenthal. In the village of Schmallenberg there was a strong Christian (Christianity), mainly Roman Catholic (Roman Catholic Church), presence. From 1824 to 1829 he was governor of the Confederate Fortress (Fortresses of the German Confederation) at Mainz; from 1830 to 1831 he was governor-general of the Rhine Province and Westphalia (Province of Westphalia). In this capacity, he opened on 20 September 1831 the first rail line on German soil (list of the first German railways to 1870) from Hinsbeck via the Deilbach valley to Nierenhof. Until then, the line had been called ''Deilthaler Eisenbahn'' ("Deil Valley Railway"); after its opening it was allowed to call itself ''Prince William Railway Company'' Early life Nolte was born in Witten, Westphalia (Province of Westphalia) to a Roman Catholic family. Nolte's parents were Heinrich Nolte, a school rector, and Anna (née Bruns) Nolte. Strute, Karl and Doelken, Theodor (editors) ''Who's Who In Germany 1982–1983'' Volume 2 N-Z, Verlag AG: Zurich, 1983 p. 1194 According to Nolte in a March 28, 2003 interview with a French newspaper ''Eurozine'', his first encounter with Communism occurred when he was 7 years old in 1930, when he read in a doctor's office a German translation of a Soviet children's book attacking the Catholic Church, which angered him. At its beginnings, the area was held by the Noble Lords of Gevore-Bilstein. Johann II von Bilstein relinquished his lordly claim to Count Gottfried IV of Arnsberg in 1350. After Johann’s death in 1363, however, Gottfried could not assert his claim to the land of Bilstein and it fell to Count Engelbert III von der Mark. As a result of the Soest Feud, the land of Bilstein, and thereby also the area that is now the community of Kirchhundem, ended up in the ownership of the Archbishop of Cologne in 1445. The area was held by the Electorate of Cologne right up until 1802-1803, its overlordship ending only with Secularization. The former Duchy of Westphalia passed to the Landgrave at Hesse-Darmstadt. He introduced, through many reforms after 350 years of church control, the end of the Middle Ages in the southern Sauerland. After Napoleon’s (Napoleon I of France) abdication, Grand Duke Ludwig I (Louis I, Grand Duke of Hesse) also had to relinquish his holdings in Prussia, which he had only acquired a few years earlier. The area was incorporated into the newly formed Prussian Province of Westphalia. Under Prussian governance, other reforms were implemented. Among other things, the ''Amt (Amt (administrative division))'' of Kirchhundem, the current community’s forerunner, was brought into being in the course of the introduction of the ''Landgemeindeordnung'' (“Rural Community Ordinance”) in 1843. G. Becker, M. Vormberg: ''Kirchhundem, Geschichte des Amtes und der Gemeinde.'' Thus the area became a member of the newly founded administrative district of Minden in the Province of Westphalia. In 1816, in the process of forming the new Districts of Germany, Alfen, Nordborchen, Kirchborchen and Dörenhagen were integrated into the district of Paderborn, whereas Etteln became a member of the district of Büren (Büren (district)). In 1856 the Kingdom of Hanover opened the southern railway (''Südbahn'') from Hanover to Kassel with a station in Elze. After the annexation by Prussia (Kingdom of Prussia) in 1866, the town became an important railway junction with the building of the ''Weserbahn'' branch-off to Löhne in Westphalia (Province of Westphalia) by entrepreneur Bethel Henry Strousberg, finished in 1875. Elze is also the junction of the Bundesstraße 1 and Bundesstraße 3 federal highways.
