Marienburg Castle - Hanover Germany

Marienburg Castle was built by King George V, the last monarch to rule over the kingdom of Hanover, between 1858 and 1867 as a gift for his wife, Marie of Saxe-Altenburg, for her 39th birthday. The castle build was completed in 1867, the very same year in which Queen Marie followed her husband into exile, and never again was she to see this beautiful gift again. More recently, the castle was owned by Prince Ernst August of Hanover, after his father signed it over to him in 2004. In 2018, Prince Ernst August announced the transfer of ownership of the castle to the state of Lower Saxony. ...................................................................... #photography #art #history #education
