And now as much of his epic story as is currently known to me. Still lots of gaps in his career... like what he DID after ... 1890 besides artsy stuff... and when he died.

Did you figure out from the "impossible" (without ribbons showing) combination what the key GERMAN rarity was? And how about that British Ethiopia campaign medal!!!

As a start as always Wikipedia? He belongs to the 100 wealthiest Germans of his time. Reason enough to become a Freiherr. I am quite sure, that a great painting of him is to be seen in the Deutschen Historischen Museum in Berlin. Unfortunately I can not find the foto I made of it a few years ago.

Regards, Komtur.

PS: The painting in the DHM is the one to be seen in the Wikipedia-Link.
