The building, today, is a museum, housing several worthwhile displays of very interesting pieces of art and artifacts. This palace was mostly destroyed in the bombing, but the exterior has been carefully restored. the interior spaces were created for museum needs and crowd movement. It was done very nicely and the result is a wonderful focal point of the AltStadt.

Restored palaces can become a dime-a-dozen if they are simply used to show how their royal occupants once live. Bedrooms, dining rooms, art galleries, throne rooms, etc all become very much alike. The mixed-use concept seems to work well, I think, and while maintaining the historic appearance of the exterior, it's a win win for all concerned.

Nice post cards! Note the Taschenbergpalais on the far right. This was a lovely palace for Augustus' mistress. Completely destroyed in 1945, it is not rebuilt with original exteriors but a modern and wonderful hotel inside. Here's the Taschenberg today in the background with the royal palace on the left:




The facades are all restored now. in the next years they will redecorate the state and semi-state rooms of the Castle. f.e. this years opend the "English Staircase". The museum part contains also the historic rooms (in historic manor) of the Green Vault. After the restauration there will be nearly 50 per cent of hirstoric rooms restaurated.

The Taschenberg Palais is rebulit, but with small varioations on the facades (f. e. without the arms on the roof base)... the inside also have some restaured rooms, stairs and so on.

Hello,
Does anyone know how I might contact HRH the Margrave Maria Emanuel of Saxony? I am writing a book about royal opposition to Hitler and should like to send him a couple of questions by way of interview if possible.

Maria Emanuel's younger brother Albert has a website. Maybe you could ask him.

For Miguel II. it must be really awful. His other son was involved in scandals, too. Just Maria Teresa was carefree (but the poor woman lost a daughter and a son early).

The "second last king of Saxony" was Albert's father Georg.

Johann > Albert > Georg > Friedrich August III.

Hi there (Reply to Cimbrio re morganatic marriage of Georg TIMO to Margrit Lucas.) Why is there all the Kaffuffle about equal marriages still?. Beautiful Margrit died when only 26 years old.She was a faithful wife and mother and certainly the LUCAS family had noble virtues. (Lucas means "of light" by the way) My mother (Irmgard)told me that when she was little, their father Karl gave them  small packages of food to hide in  specific places in the forest for Jewish people to pick up. Certainly,had Margrit lived, she would have been accepted as a princess. (Note that currently Mary Princess of Denmark though morganatically married has rightly had a title conferred on her.) In my most humble and politically ignorant place I must say that if a Prince finds a woman worthy of marrying then surely, that  woman at his side, is worthy of title? Margrit  was of noble character. Certainly Rudiger is of true blood line and should in my opinion regardless of any history still hold the "next in line position" for the fact of being born to the last successor. There are those of you who say well he has a "chequered past". I would say to that...there are few people on the planet that have the right to cast stones and I still hold hope that this family (part of my own) will shine as they recover those things that have been previously ripped from them. I am thinking about if my mum died when I was so young and I lost my father too through grief and depression and then finding out that my family in fact had to flee for their life. I also believe that power and finance are not given for personal prestige and glory but for doing good. Wait...their story is not finished yet... bless ya

Interesting. It´s quite sad, that Maria Emanuel didn´t changed the rules, so that Rüdiger could be the successor. But it were Timos brothers Dedo, Gero and Prince Albert who decided with Maria that Alexander Afif will be the next successor.
You can not compare the Danish royal dynasty with the German dynasties. The German dynasties have a problem with their identity. I think they are ludicrous. Because they can´t distinguish between children from a marriage between a king´s son and a commoner, and the adoption of very odd people like ZsaZsa Gabors husband and his much more weird adopted sons. :)

Timo and Margit

They are not Timo and Margit. The photo is from 1920s when Timo was a child.

If I knew I'd say who are they. I said they were not Timo and Margit.

The photo of them had been posted at another Royal Forum - Royal Weddings message board I think.
