Photographer's Note

At the entrance to the palace, Princess Marianne of Orange-Nassau welkomes personally her guests.
This is an "artistic" vision of Marianne's portrait made of wicker.

Princess Marianne of Orange-Nassau (1810-1883) was the daughter of King William I of the Netherlands. In 1830 she married her first cousin Prince Albert of Hohenzollern and had five children. But it was a failed marriage, her husband was cheating on her. In 1845 she left her unfaithful husband, began to live with her lover and bore him a child. It was a scandal, the family broke all contact with her. She spent the following years in Italy and died in Erbach in the Rhineland.
In Lower Silesia, she was very popular and called by people "a good lady" due to her charity activity.
