Silver wedding anniversary[edit]

On the occasion of their silver wedding anniversary in 1907, Emperor Wilhelm II presented to Georg and Marie Anne the family ancestral seat, Schaumburg Castle.[1] The castle had been controlled by the Hohenzollerns ever since Georg's grandfather sided with the Austrians in the 1866 Austro-Prussian War.[1] The gift was also meant to be in recognition of Georg's support in the dispute over the succession to the Lippe-Detmold throne.[1]
