There is a book on his cousine Therese whichs states that she remained unmarried because she wanted to marry Otto.

To celebrate his 300th birthday (on January 24th) there is a new german TV movie on Frederick's life. Frederick is played by the famous german actress Katharina Thalbach. (Young Frederick is played by her daughter Anna.)

Hi Eric,

here is a map of Germany at the time of 1789.

If you are looking for Zweibrücken.

1. Enlarge the map
2. Look for "Frankreich"  (France)
3. Look for Lothringen (Lorraine) and "Luneville"
4. Go north-east over the frontier to Germany
5. There is irregular dark green spot in which you can read: "FSM Zweibrücken" (Princedom Zweibrücken)

Very smal indeed?

A part of the Habsburgs a countries is shown in the far South and east of the map.

A Duke of Zweibrücken was no military much for the Habsburg-emperator.

No, Karl August was DUKE of Pfalz-Birkenfeld-Zweibrücken.

Well, I'm quite astonished that there is at least ONE foto. Thanx for your answer and have a nice and interesting time in Vienna :-)

Sorry Eric,

Karl never became King. He died before his cousin elector Karl Theodor of Bavaria. His younger brother Maximilian became elector Max IV Josef
and in 1806 King Max I.

Karl August had a son named Karl August Friedrich, who was born in 1776 and died 1784.

At ebay Germany someone sells a catalogue about the Wittelsbachs exibition in 1980. I thhink the cover shows Max I with a earring.

I think you are talking about Max I Josef. I remember seeing paintings of him with a big, golden ring in his ear (like a pirate). At time of Max II (1811-1864) earrings for man were quite out of fashion.

Mediatized Noble Families / Re: "Mediatized" - what is it?
« on: July 27, 2007, 04:28:47 PM »
From Wikipedia:

The term "mediatization" was originally applied to the reorganization of the German states during the early 19th century. many monarchs married German princesses: German mediatized families were especially abundant.

I didn't know what it meant, either.  :-[

Does anyone know what the German term is?

Thanks in advance,


German it is "Mediatisierung" .
