Württemberg

Heilsbronn Abbey In the Middle Ages it was the seat of one of the great monasteries of Germany, with possessions around Franconia as far as Regensburg and in Württemberg. It was founded in 1132 and continued to exist till 1555. Its sepulchral monuments, many of which are figured by Hocker, ''Heilsbronnischer Antiquitätenschatz'' (Ansbach, 1731-1740), are of exceptionally high artistic interest. It was the hereditary burial-place of the Hohenzollern family and ten burgraves of Nuremberg, five margraves (Margrave of Brandenburg) and three electors of Brandenburg (elector of Brandenburg), and many other persons of note are buried within its walls. The building was designed by architect Arnold Zenetti and built under the direction of Heinrich Adam in 1863. Initially, it was planned as a city palace (''Stadtpalais'') of Duke (Duke of Württemberg) Philipp of Württemberg (1838-1917) and his spouse Duchess Marie Therese (1845-1927), née Archduchess of Austria, and its original name was '''Palais Württemberg'''. However, the Duke and the Duchess did not like their new home very much and, after having moved there in 1866, sold it only five years later. For the Universal Exhibition (Weltausstellung 1873 Wien) it was converted into a hotel in 1873. In 1928, two stories were added. But the original architecture is still very much in evidence and is an integral part of the luxurious atmosphere. Born in the Württemberg village of Niederstetten, Witt became a cellist (some accounts say a violinist) in the court orchestra of Oettingen-Wallerstein (House of Oettingen-Wallerstein) when he was nineteen. Greene, David Mason. ''Greene's Biographical Encyclopedia of Composers'', Reproducing Piano Roll Fnd., (1985) ISBN 0385142781, p. 442 Witt was most famous in his lifetime for his oratorio ''Der leidende Heiland'', securing an appointment as Kapellmeister for the Prince of Würzburg, and later for the theater, where he stayed until his death. He also wrote two operas: ''Palma'' (1804) and ''Das Fischerweib'' (1806). His other compositions include concertos, church music, chamber music and symphonies (symphony). His best known work, a symphony in C major known as the Jena, is largely plagiarised from the Symphony No. 97 (Symphony No. 97 (Haydn)) by Joseph Haydn. DATE OF BIRTH 8 November 1770 PLACE OF BIRTH Württemberg village of Niederstetten DATE OF DEATH 3 January 1836 :: I'm absolutely on your side here, but I fear that we're gonna run into trouble especially if we start to stub sort events or persons which other users feel to be, e.g., polish et al.; there are people around who would allow the term Germany to be used only after 1945, or, in extreme cases, after 1989 Lectonar (User:Lectonar) 6 July 2005 09:30 (UTC) ::: It's only going to get worse - soon. I've already got plans to heavily populate Salm (Salm (state)) (probably about 20 - 30 stubs here), Isenburg (another 10 or so), Baden (10), Württemberg (10), and am about to begin a co-ordination on Furstenberg (which will almost definately contain considerably more). I don't think the hist-stub or even a euro-hist-stub would do well with all of these emerging in the near-future. Of course, the concerns you have also apply with most European countries: they'd be objection to a French history stub because the Bretons, Basques, and Catalonians wouldn't like it. You couldn't do an Italy history stub due to the Ladin and Germanic regions of Trentino-Alto Adige, and it emerged in 1860 or thereabouts. A line needs to be drawn somewhere. - Nomadic1 (User:Nomadic1) 7 July 2005 09:31 (UTC) :::: To that I can only add: Germany as it was in 1071: Naples must stay german! :) Lectonar (User:Lectonar) 7 July 2005 10:02 (UTC) Life Born in Rottenburg am Neckar, Eugen Bolz was his parents' twelfth child. His father, Joseph Bolz, was a salesman. His mother was Maria Theresia Bolz (née Huber). Bolz studied law in Tübingen and there became a member of A.V. Guestfalia Tübingen, a catholic student fraternity or Studentenverbindung, which belonged to the ''Cartellverband der katholischen deutschen Studentenverbindungen''. Not long after finishing his studies in Bonn and Berlin, he latched onto politics as a career and joined the Centre Party (Centre Party (Germany)), which he represented in the Reichstag (Reichstag (German Empire)) from 1912 to 1933, and from 1915 to 1933, also in the Württemberg ''Landtag''. In Württemberg, he became Justice Minister in 1919 and Interior Minister in 1923. She reestablished contacts with the now banned KPD. From late 1934, she worked as a technical aid with Stefan Lovasz, the Württemberg KPD leader. She obtained from Arthur Göritz information about secret weapons projects — munitions production at the Dornier factory in Friedrichshafen and the building of another, underground munitions factory near Celle — which she relayed to the KPD's office that had been set up in Switzerland. The castle "Stof" is assumed to be a corruption of "Stauf", meaning either castle Stauf in Staufen im Breisgau (Staufen, Germany) or the Hohenstaufen castle in Württemberg. The king mentioned is Péter Orseolo (Peter Urseolo of Hungary), placing the arrival of the Gutkeleds to Hungary sometime around the 1040s.

ISBN 963-9116-31-9 History Bretten was first mentioned as "villa breteheim" in the "Lorsch codex" in 767. Since 1148 Bretten had the right to mint and issue coins. In 1254 Bretten received city rights. In 1492 Bretten was granted to hold four fairs by Pfalzgraf Philipp. Philipp Melanchthon was born in Bretten in 1497. The residents of Bretten successfully sallied against the Swabian besiegers around Ulrich of Württemberg in 1504. In 1803 Bretten became “Badische Amtsstadt”. After the industrial revolution, the local economy was dominated by cooker production for many years. In 1975 Bretten was given the status of a "Große Kreisstadt" (district city). thumb left Coat of arms of the Swabian Circle, 1737 (File:Wappen schwäbischer Reichskreis 1.jpg) The directors of the Swabian Circle were the Bishop of Constance (Bishopric of Constance) (replaced by the margrave of Baden after the 1803 ''Reichsdeputationshauptschluss (German Mediatisation)'') and the Duke of Württemberg; meetings of the circle's diet were usually held at the Imperial city (Free imperial city) of Ulm. Though it was shattered into a multitude of mainly very small states, the circle had an effective government, which, in view of the eastward expansion of France (Early Modern France), from 1694 on even maintained its own army based at the Kehl fortress. '''Olaf Saile''' (August 27, 1901 - June 29, 1952) was a German (Germany) writer born in Weitingen (Eutingen im Gäu), Württemberg. Saile's principal claim to fame is the historical novel ''Kepler, Roman einer Zeitwende'' first published in German (German language) in Stuttgart in 1938 and many times reprinted. It is an imagined biography of the life and times of the astronomer and mathematician Johannes Kepler. The novel was translated into English (English language) by James A Galston and published in New York in 1940 by Oskar Piest, under the title ''Troubadour of the Stars''. The novel has occasionally been interpreted as a coded protest against the Nazi régime which Saile had experienced at first hand. Following the banning of the Social Democratic Party (Social Democratic Party (Germany)) by the Nazis, in June 1933 as editor of the newspaper ''Rathenower Zeitung'', during the subsequent wave of arrests Olaf Saile was briefly detained in the Oranienburg Concentration Camp, during which time he was maltreated. His release was apparently secured after a friend and fellow-journalist Käthe Lambert used her journalistic credentials to enter the camp and then to write a report detailing conditions there. They subsequently married. Saile died at the age of 50 and was buried in the Church of St. Bernhardt in Esslingen am Neckar. Käthe Saile is buried alongside her husband. Falkenhayn (Erich von Falkenhayn)'s forces made several probing attacks into the mountain passes held by the Romanian Army to see if there were weaknesses in the Romanian defences. After several weeks, he concentrated his best troops (the elite ''Alpen Korps'') in the south for an attack on the Vulcan Pass. The attack (Battle of Vulcan Pass) was launched on November 10. One of the young officers was the future Field Marshal Erwin Rommel. On November 11, then-Lieutenant Rommel led the Württemberg Mountain Company in the capture of Mount Lescului. The offensive pushed the Romanian defenders back through the mountains and into the plains by November 26. There was already snow covering the mountains and soon operations would have to halt for the winter. Advances by other parts of Falkenhayn's Ninth Army (9th Army (German Empire)) also pushed through the mountains; the Romanian Army was being ground down by the constant battle and their supply situation was becoming critical. * Michałów (Michałów, Pińczów County) (1953) of Poland, which breeds Arabians. *Marbach stud, (1477) also known as Weil-Marbach, Württemberg (present day Germany).
