Excerpt from Grete Minde: Nach Einer Altmärkischen Chronik
The parents of Theodor F ontane, the author of Greta M inda, were both descended from French Protes tants, who had sought refuge in Prussia after the Revo cation of the Edict of Nantes They were in temperament strikin... gly difierent from one another, contrasting much as the parents of the poet Heine, the father a light-hearted, irresponsible, and somewhat dashing gentleman who conducted a rather unsuccess ful business, the mother a woman of energy and prae tical common sense. Early in the year 1819 the elder F ontane bought the Lion apothecary sh0p in the little Brandenburg town of N eu-ruppin, and there Theodor F ontane was born on December 30. Fontane spent his early boyhood in neu-ruppin, but the family removed in 1827 to the Baltic town of Swinemiinde where the father had acquired the Stadtapotheke.
