Hereditary Grand Duke Pays Visit to Speyer

Hereditary Grand Duke Guillaume visited the German city of Speyer earlier this week for a meeting of the board of trustees of the Europäische Stiftung Kaiserdom zu Speyer, a foundation committed to the preservation of the local cathedral. The Imperial Cathedral of Speyer is one of Germany's largest and most important Romanesque buildings. The Kaiserdom is also the burial place of no less than eight Roman-German Kings, some of them Holy Roman Emperors. Among them is Adolph of Nassau, ancestor of the Hereditary Grand Duke. The coat of arms of the House of Nassau can be found in the western facade of the cathedral.

The Hereditary Grand Duke became a member of the board of trustees of the foundation last year. (Read all about it.) Also in attendance for the event were Duke Max and Duchess Elizabeth in Bavaria, parents of Hereditary Princess Sophie of Liechtenstein. Duke Max is the head of the foundation council.
