Anna von Hessen 1836-1918

Anna von Hessen 1836-1918
Exhibitioncatalog of Schloss Fasanerie. Anna von Hessen (1836-1918) used Schloss Fasanerie in Eichenzell near Fulda intensively during the summer months and stayed in contact with the castle and the city of Fulda until the end of her life. This is the catalog of the special exhibition "Landgräfin Anna, Living in Castle Fasanerie" and shows her as a princess of the 19th century and also in her private life, in which her great passion for music occupies a special place. Anna was born in 1836 as a Prussian princess in the most powerful phase of the Prussian monarchy. In 1853 she married Prince Frederick of Hessen-Kassel, and would become heir to the throne of Hesse. 13 years later, as a result of the annexation of Hesse by Prussia, the House of Hesse-Kassel lost the title and Prince Frederick William the right to the Hessian throne. It should not be the only challenge Anna had to face in her life. Due to political and personal setbacks she came into contact with religion and music. Throughout her life she maintained contact with the great composers of her time - Johannes Brahms dedicated to her the important sonata for two pianos in F minor. After her death on June 12, 1918, Anna (converted to a Catholic faith in 1901) was buried as the only woman in the cathedral of Fulda. Hardback edition, German-language, 21x30 cm, 228 pages, illustrated.
