John Vanbrugh in Kneller's Kit-cat portrait, considered one of Kneller's finest portraits. Kneller was born '''Gottfried Kniller''' in the Free City of Lübeck, the son of Zacharias Kniller. Kneller studied in Leiden, but became a pupil of Ferdinand Bol and Rembrandt (Rembrandt Harmenszoon van Rijn) in Amsterdam. He then traveled with his brother John Zacharias Kneller, who was an ornamental painter, to Rome and Venice in the early 1670s, painting historical subjects and portraits in the studio of Carlo Maratti, and later moved to Hamburg. They came to England in 1674, at the invitation of the Duke of Monmouth. He was introduced to, and painted a portrait of, Charles II (Charles II of England). In England, Kneller concentrated almost entirely on portraiture. He founded a studio which churned out portraits on an almost industrial scale, relying on a brief sketch of the face with details added to a formulaic model, aided by the fashion for gentlemen to wear full wigs (Wig (hair)). His portraits set a pattern that was followed until William Hogarth and Joshua Reynolds. 19th century thumb right 120px Postage stamp (File:Heligolandstamp.jpg) showing Queen Victoria and denominated in Hamburg schillings.

It has been speculated that he met with Eugen Fischer during his stay, but at this stage, Social Darwinism was not the focus of Verwoerd's research. He published a number of works dating back to that time. Beyers, C.J. (1981). Dictionary of South African Biography, Vol.4, Durban: Butterworth, pp.730–40 Verwoerd's fiancee, Betsie Schoombie, joined him in Germany and they were subsequently married on 7 January 1927 in Hamburg.

A Concise Dictionary of South African Biography, Cape Town: Francolin, pp.275–6 Most of the German federal states (States of Germany) (''Bundesländer'') have their own orders of merit, with up to three ranks (member, officer, commander). This excludes the Free (Free Imperial City) and Hanseatic (Hanseatic League) Cities of Bremen and Hamburg, which reject any orders; by old tradition their citizens, particularly former or present senators, will refuse any decoration in the form of an order (most famous example: former Chancellor (Chancellor of Germany (Federal Republic of Germany)) Helmut Schmidt).

Aantal halsbandparkieten in Nederland verdubbeld There also exists a feral population in Belgium, with as many as 5,000 pairs estimated in Brussels. Halsbandparkieten These originate from an original population that was set free in 1974 by the owner of the Meli Zoo and Attraction Park near the Atomium who wanted to make Brussel more colourful. In Germany, these birds are found along the Rhine in all major urban areas like Cologne, Bonn, Ludwigshafen and Heidelberg, Wiesbaden and in the northeast of Hamburg.

Hamburg

thumb Official logo of the Free and Hanseatic City of Hamburg (File:Hamburg-logo.svg) thumb Hamburg, seen from the International Space Station (File:HamburgFromTheISS.jpg) '''Hamburg''' ( It is also the thirteenth largest German state (States of Germany). Its population is over 1.8 million people, and the Hamburg Metropolitan Region (including parts of the neighbouring Federal States (States of Germany) of Lower Saxony and Schleswig-Holstein) has more than 5 million inhabitants. The port of Hamburg, on the river Elbe, is the second largest port in Europe (after the Port of Rotterdam) and tenth largest worldwide.

The official name reflects its history (History of Hamburg) as a member of the medieval Hanseatic League, as a free imperial city of the Holy Roman Empire, a city-state, and one of the 16 states of Germany. Before the 1871 Unification of Germany, it was a fully sovereign state. Prior to the constitutional changes in 1919, the stringent civic republic was ruled by a class of hereditary grand burghers or Hanseaten (Hanseaten (class)).

Hamburg is a major transport hub and is one of the most affluent (Affluency) cities in Europe. It has become a media and industrial centre, with plants and facilities belonging to ''Airbus'', ''Blohm + Voss'' and ''Aurubis''. The radio and television broadcaster ''Norddeutscher Rundfunk'' and publishers such as ''Gruner + Jahr'' and ''Spiegel (Der Spiegel)-Verlag'' are pillars of the important media industry in Hamburg. Hamburg has been an important financial centre for centuries, and is the seat of the world's second oldest bank (List of oldest banks in continuous operation), Berenberg Bank. There are more than 120,000 enterprises.

The city is a notable tourist destination for both domestic and overseas visitors; it ranked 17th (Mercer Quality of Living Survey) in the world for livability in 2012.
