Excerpt from Das Edle Blut: Erzählung
Ernst von wildenbruch was born February 3, 1845, at Beirut, Syria. His father, Ludwig von Wildenbruch, at that time Prussian consul-general at Beirut, is described as a man of straightforward, independent character. His mother, Ernestine ... née von Langen, was a woman in whom religious and patriotic feelings were unusually strong. Ernst inherited the traits of both parents, and these have become in no small degree characteristic ot'his literary work. In 1847 the von Wildenbruch family returned to Berlin, remaining there till 1850, when Ludwig von Wil denbruch was appointed Prussian ambassador to Greece. After a year in Athens, he was transferred to Constantino ple, where the family lived about six years. In the spring of 1857 the mother, accompanied by the children (three sons and a daughter), returned to Berlin. She was in fail ing health and died in January of the following year.
