About This Design
SOUVENIR PLATE-Königsberg Coat of Arms Plate
Coat of Arms of Königsberg, a 700 year old German city that no longer exists. It was founded by the Teutonic Knights just south of the Sambian peninsula in 1255 during the Northern Crusades and named in honour of King Ottokar II of Bohemia (the German-language name Königsberg literally means "King's mountain"). The city successively became the capital of their monastic state, the Duchy of Prussia, and East Prussia. The Baltic port developed into a German cultural centre, being the residence of, among others, Richard Wagner, Immanuel Kant, E. T. A. Hoffmann, and David Hilbert............................By the act of coronation in Königsberg Castle on January 18, 1701, Elector Frederick III became Frederick I, King in Prussia. The elevation of the Duchy of Prussia to the Kingdom of Prussia was possible because the Hohenzollerns' authority in Prussia was independant of Poland and the Holy Roman Empire. Since "Kingdom of Prussia" was increasingly used to designate all of the Hohenzollern lands, former ducal Prussia became known as the Province of Prussia (1701–1773), with Königsberg as its capital. However, Berlin and Potsdam in Brandenburg were the main residences of the Prussian kings.........................In 1945 it was occupied and totally destroyed by the Russians. After the war all remaining Germans were killed or deported and the country became an impoverished satellite of the Soviet Union.
