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.

His portraits set a pattern that was followed until William Hogarth and Joshua Reynolds. * the Evangelical Lutheran Church in the State of Hamburg (Hamburg)'' ( although there was also a need to compensate Prussia for its losses to Hamburg. Besides Lübeck, which was incorporated into the Prussian Province of Schleswig-Holstein (Schleswig-Holstein Province), Hamburg had to cede its possessions of Geesthacht, which went to Schleswig-Holstein as well, and Ritzebüttel (which included Cuxhaven), which went to the Province of Hanover. From the possessions Prussia gave up to Hamburg, Altona (Altona, Hamburg) and Wandsbek had belonged to Schleswig-Holstein, while Harburg-Wilhelmsburg (Harburg, Hamburg) had been a part of Hanover. By this ceremony, the North German Confederation ('''''Norddeutscher Bund''''') was transformed into the German Empire ('''''Deutsches Kaiserreich'''''). This empire was a federal state (Federation); the emperor was head of state and president of the federated monarchs (the kings of Bavaria (Kingdom of Bavaria), Württemberg (Kingdom of Württemberg), Saxony (Kingdom of Saxony), the grand dukes of Baden (Grand Duchy of Baden), Mecklenburg, Hesse (Grand Duchy of Hesse), as well as other principalities, duchies and of the free cities (free city) of Hamburg (Free City of Hamburg), Lübeck (Free City of Lübeck) and Bremen (Bremen (state))).

Count Adolf IV (Adolf IV of Holstein) of Schauenburg and Holstein (Counts of Schauenburg and Holstein) — leading an army consisting of troops from the cities of Lübeck (Free City of Lübeck) and Hamburg, about 1000 Dithmarsians (Dithmarschen) and combined troops of Holstein next to various north German nobles — defeated King Valdemar II of Denmark. Saxe-Lauenburg ceded Bleckede - with toll and castle - to Margrave Waldemar of Brandenburg-Stendal (Waldemar, Margrave of Brandenburg-Stendal), who quickly sold his new acquisition in 1308 to the Welf duke Otto the Strict, ruling the branch Principality of Lunenburg (Lüneburg) (Lüneburg-Celle). Two years later the duke granted Bleckede town privileges, comprising the obligation to fortify the town. In 1379 Duke Albert of Lunenburg-Celle (Albert of Saxe-Wittenberg, Duke of Lüneburg) pawned Bleckede castle to his creditors Hamburg, Lübeck (Free City of Lübeck), Hanover and Lunenburg (Lüneburg) (Lüneburg). The latter managed to hold Bleckede by way of pawn until 1600. Every Protestant sovereign hereafter claimed and exercised the so-called ''jus reformandi religionem'', and decided the church question according to his own faith and that of the majority of his subjects. Saxony, Hesse, Prussia (Duchy of Prussia), Anhalt, Lüneburg, East Friesland, Schleswig-Holstein, Silesia, and the cities of Nuremberg, Augsburg, Frankfurt, Ulm, Strasburg (Strasbourg), Bremen, Hamburg, and Lübeck (Free City of Lübeck), adopted Protestantism. The princes of the territories and the magistrates of the cities consulted the theologians and preachers. The powerful house of Austria, with the Emperor, and the Dukes of Bavaria, adhered to the old faith, and hotly contested the principle of independent state action on the church question, as being contrary to all the traditions of the Empire and of the Roman Church. 1934 Formed from the Prussian Province of Schleswig-Holstein, the Free City of Lübeck and territory belonging to the Free State of Oldenburg -
