Abstract

Aikin, Professor of German (emeritus) at the University of Iowa, presents Aemilia Juliana’s life and her different roles in Schwarzburg-Rudolstadt as mother of the dynasty and the people (Landesmutter), as partner supporting her husband in his reign or acting regent during his absence, as head of the household and land owner, as artistic sponsor and poet in her own right, and, especially, as pillar of prayer (Betsäule) for the dynasty and within the Protestant community.
