The demands of holding court
From their accession in 1891, King Wilhelm II and his consort Charlotte made regular visits to Bebenhausen palace. Every year in late autumn, at the start of the deer rutting season, the royal couple would meet with relations, friends, officers and selected guests at the palace. For two weeks, each day's hunting would be crowned with a festive feast. Three courses, nine individual dishes in total and each with matching wines: such was the kitchen's evening agenda.
