Mug "Hohenzollern", white


The “Hohenzollern”

The “Hohenzollern” is more than the name of a family, but often called the “House of Hohenzollern” is the brand of an entire dynasty. It not only forms one of the most powerful conglomerate of family networks in the north of Germany stretching from Prussia to Brandenburg further east into Romania, but as the family originated in the 11th century rather from the south-west of Germany, more precisely from Swabia with its town Hechingen where we find the famous Hohenzollern Castle, its network also contains those southern often Catholic areas as, for example, Sigmaringen and others. But also the south-east is represented with a branch of the family in Franconia. No wander, therefore, that this powerhouse provided electors, kings, princes and, finally the Hohenzollern became the hereditary emperors of the German Empire and Kings of Prussia. Only after WWI their empire crumbled, the emperor was removed and Germany developed into a democracy. Yet, although less known today, the family still exists and lives on.


The mug “Hohenzollern” 

Enjoy your tea or coffee with this celebratory mug “Hohenzollern”, produced with the official coat of arms of the Kingdom of Prussia of the year 1873. On closer inspection, one recognizes the 52 coat of arms of all the territories that represent the vast network of connections and the highly developed empire under the rule of the Hohenzollern. In addition to the banners of Brandenburg and Prussia we can discover the chain of the Black Eagle Order, an expression of royal dignity, and enthroned above all, the Prussian crown .
