On Swan Lake. The landscape garden surrounding Rosenau Palace

Schloss Rosenau / Rosenau Palace (near Coburg, Upper Franconia, Bavaria, Germany) and the landscape garden surrounding Rosenau. 

This palace, basically a medieval structure, was rebuilt from 1808 to 1817 in the neo-Gothic style as a summer residence for Duke Ernst I of Sachsen-Coburg-Saalfeld.

Prince Albert of Sachsen-Coburg and Gotha, who married Queen Victoria in 1840, was born 1819 in Rosenau.

The landscape garden surrounding Rosenau Palace has a rich variety of park scenery and extensive views. Created in the early 19th century as an "ornamented farm" covering an area of 200 hectares.

"In Service" by Julia Fullerton-Batten

"During the Edwardian era in Britain (1901 to 1911) over 1.5 million men and women were employed as servants in the homes of the wealthy. Being ‘In Service’ was a way to escape poverty, but it was not the relatively comfortable life frequently illustrated in today’s media. It was hard work, and there was exploitation and abuse, some of it sexual in nature. “In Service” exposes some of the going-on behind the walls of the houses of the privileged class in that era.

A scullery maid in a great London house in the early 1900s was the lowest rank of servant. She had to do the most menial of tasks, scrub the floors, wash dishes and clothes, carry heavy buckets full of water, iron using primitive flat-irons heated on the stove, clean the fireplace and front steps, polish shoes and boots of everyone in the household – also those of fellow servants – even iron shoe-laces. Starting in her early teenage years she would have had hopes in time of working her way up to better positions, perhaps a maid at table or a lady’s maid waiting on the lady of the house.

There were many levels of staff employed, some great houses employed staff in considerable numbers. Status was just as important among servants as it was elsewhere in society; the cook was responsible for all kitchen staff, the butler for all the staff engaged in the daily running of the house. The upper rank servants were entitled to hire, discipline and dismiss those for whom they were responsible. With the privilege of power it’s not surprising that there were many reports of servants abusing other, lower ranking, servants.

Male employers often looked to female servants as sexual partners. It was also not unknown for a lady of the house to form a liaison with male members of staff, as described by D.H. Lawrence in his notorious exposé of morals of the time, “Lady Chatterley’s Lover”. Gay sex between males was prohibited by a law passed in 1885 and was punished by imprisonment. Despite this, there was a significant upsurge in homosexuality in this era, especially among the intelligentsia and upper class. Notoriously, the famous playwright, Oscar Wilde, was sent to prison in 1897 after being arrested for ‘gross indecency’.

It was probably difficult for servants to resist the advances of their employers. Many may have thought that such a relationship would enable them to escape their lower class status. Affairs of this kind were secretive as both partners feared being caught. For servants the consequences were inevitably life-changing. If an affair did come to light, the servant would be immediately dismissed and thrown back onto the street. Being caught in a gay relationship could mean both participants would end up in prison.

Another risk was pregnancy. This would result in both loss of job and disgrace for the mother-to-be. Many expectant mothers ended up in a workhouse until the birth took place, then the baby was adopted and the mother left to restart her life. Some new mothers became wet-nurses, breast-feeding the babies of rich mothers, who either couldn’t or didn’t want to breastfeed their children themselves. Earlier, Queen Victoria had set a trend as she chose not to breast-feed any of her own nine children, complaining that she suffered enough in pregnancy and these had already ‘robbed’ her sufficiently of her powers as queen.

“In Service” concentrates on amoral episodes that took place in some of the stately homes of Britain during the Edwardian era. I was fortunate to find three stately homes in the south of England that provided eminently suitable backdrops for shooting the series. Built in the 18th Century their interior decorations closely resemble those found in grand houses in the Edwardian era. I dressed the servants in authentic Edwardian era style clothing. To heighten the class difference I went for a contrast in fashion styles and dressed some of the female employers in clothing designed by Alexander McQueen and Chanel.

As an interesting side-note, one of the houses, Gaddesden Place, was rebuilt after it was almost completely destroyed by fire in 1901. Although everybody was evacuated from the building before the fire took hold, a butler and a footman were killed when they returned wine to the undamaged wine cellar and an interior wall fell in on them."

Dolmabahce Palace, turkey istanbul.

The Dolmabahce Palace was built between 1843 and 1856 when the Ottoman Empire was losing its power. This superb palace displays the richness and power that the Sultans had. The decline of the Ottoman Empire began and people starting revolting; the Ottoman army was obsolete and disorganized, the economy was out of control.
The Dolmabahce Palace is located on the west, European shore of the Bosphorus and is enormous. It has 248 rooms, 43 entrance halls, 6 Turkish baths and approximately 2.700 windows. It is divided into two sections: the official part – where the sultan would receive distinguished guests from all over the world and the Harem – where the Sultan’s wife, mother and concubines lived.
The palace is sumptuously decorated throughout – Bakara crystals, pictures by famous artists, luxurious furniture, rugs and carpets from the famous carpet manufacturers of the city Hereke. Every square meter was decorated with the best money can buy.
A 2,000 square-meters salon has a crystal chandelier weighing 4.5 tons which was a present from the Queen Victoria of England. To heat this enormous salon it was necessary have to begin 3 days before the event.
Ataturk, the founder of the Turkish Republic, lived and governed Turkey from this palace for just 3 months. You can visit his simple, modest bed-room and office, symbolic of a man who lived and died for his country

I've staid in this one a couple of times in the past. Not quite in the centre of things, but it's not far from town and transport. The Queen Victoria Markets are two blocks away, full of colour and bargains, and the city begins another couple of blocks on. In the other direction is North Melbourne, a sub-urban centre with a fantastic array of restaurants and cafes.

“Wear that scarf," he said, pointing to a blue cashmere scarf hanging on a peg. "It matches your eyes."
Alec looked at it. Suddenly he was filled with hate - for the scarf, for Magnus, and most of all for himself. "Don't tell me," he said. "The scarf's a hundred years old, and it was given to you by Queen Victoria right before she died, for special services to the Crown or something."
Magnus sat up. "What's gotten into you?"
Alec stared at him. "Am I the newest thing in this apartment?"
"I think that honor goes to Chairman Meow. He's only two."
"I said newest, not youngest," Alec snapped.
Magnus Alec stop it :"(

I am Ciel Phantomhive, owner of Funtom Company and known as Queen Victoria's Watchdog. I also have a butler whom goes by the name of Sebastian. The ring he wears on his left thumb, an ornate silver piece that holds an emerald-cut deep-blue stone, glimmers at the light hits the surface of it. A simple black eyepatch covers his right eye, the strings are tied in the back and slightly blend into the boys hair. He gives a small smile which seems unnatural on his face since it is something he rarely ever does.
