THE GREAT SCHLOSS KALTENBERG CALENDAR 2021

KAROLINE, BAVARIA’S FIRST QUEEN (1776-1841)

Princess Karoline Friederike of Baden and Hochberg, born on 13 July 1776, and Duke Max Joseph of Palatinate-Zweibrücken were married on 9 March 1797. Amid great jubilation, Prince-Elector Max IV Joseph and Prince-Electress Karoline took up residence at their new royal seat in Munich on 12 March 1799. Coming from the Palatinate, they were accompanied by Max Joseph’s four children from his first marriage. With Prince-Electress Karoline, the Protestant religion also found its way into Munich. In Munich, Karoline gave her consort further descendants. In early 1806, heralds marched through the country, proclaiming with great pomp that the Prince-Elector of Bavaria had been promoted to the rank of King. Bavaria’s first Queen was a sought-after advisor to her consort and was particularly charitable towards her subjects.

The calendar depicts the life of Karoline in impressive images and honours her work as the second consort of King Max I Joseph, first queen of bavaria and mother.
