. This must have been some early form of gunpowder and is thought to be one of the first records of the use of firearms in a siege in Germany. The only earlier recorded use of ordnance dates back to the siege of the town of Meersburg on Lake Constance by Ludwig von Bayern (Louis IV, Holy Roman Emperor) in 1334. The oldest reports in all of Europe are from Italy (Florence 1326, Cividale 1331) and from the French fleet (1338-1346). He was born in Florence to a butcher with the family name of Giovanni; however he took the name of Squarcialupi, a well-known family from Tuscany, by mid-century, possibly to disguise his less than aristocratic origins. Most of his early life must have been spent in Florence, and he likely studied with both organist Giovanni Mazzuoli (also called Jovannes de Florentia, who was a pupil of Francesco Landini), as well as Matteo di Pagolo da Prato. In 1825, Giovanni Ricordi purchased the complete musical archives of La Scala and in 1839 he bought the copyright to Giuseppe Verdi's music that marked the beginnings of a long working relationship. During the 1840s, Casa Ricordi grew to be the largest music publisher in southern Europe and in 1842 the company created the musical journal the ''Gazzetta Musicale di Milano.'' In 1864 it expanded to Naples and then to Florence (1865), Rome (1871), London (1878), Palermo

It was also performed in Brunswick (Braunschweig) in August 1741. The first modern performance was in Abingdon (Abingdon, Oxfordshire) on 21 April 1963.

It was also produced at the Komische Oper, Berlin by Harry Kupfer in 1985. Toepfer was born in Wiesbaden, Hesse-Nassau. From 1893 to 1895, he attended the ''Zeichen-, Mal- und Kunstgewerbeschule'', a private artist's school led by H. Bouffier, where he was commended for his diligence ("''recht gutes Auffassungsvermögen und recht gutes Können, gepaart mit großem Fleiße''"), then studied at the ''Großherzogliche Akademie der bildenden Künste'' in Karlsruhe, led by Leopold Graf von Kalckreuth, until mid-1898. Starting in 1898, Toepfer then studied at the ''Königlich-Akademische Hochschule der bildenden Künste'' in Berlin-Charlottenburg for ten years, from which he graduated in late 1908 as a master student with his own studio. Toepfer married Maria Theresia Klaus, who he had met during a stay in Brandenburg (Province of Brandenburg), in Berlin in 1909; the couple then moved to Idstein in 1910 after finding a suitable house, the "''Heerhof''" (also "''Höerhof''"; Obergasse 15), complete with antique furniture. thumb 220px Charles Louis Auguste Fouquet, duc de Belle-Isle, by Hyacinthe Rigaud (File:Charles Louis Auguste Fouquet-Hyacinthe Rigaud mg 9513.jpg) He had been named marshal of France in 1741, and received a large army, with which it is said that he promised to make peace in three months under the walls of Vienna. The truth of this story is open to question, for no one knew better than Belle-Isle the limitations imposed upon commanders by the military and political circumstances of the times. These circumstances in fact rendered his efforts, both as a general and as a statesman, unavailing, and the one redeeming feature in the general failure was his heroic retreat from Prague. In ten days he led 14,000 men into and across the Bohemian Forest, suffering great privations and harassed by the enemy, but never allowing himself to be cut off, and his subordinate François de Chevert defended Prague so well that the Austrians were glad to allow him to rejoin his chief. The campaign, however, had discredited Belle-Isle; he was ridiculed at Paris by the wits and the populace, even Fleury is said to have turned against him, and, to complete his misfortunes, he was taken prisoner by the English (England) in going from Cassel Commons:Category:Berlin Wikipedia:Berlin Dmoz:Regional Europe Germany States Berlin
