I understand that in compensation for depriving him from his throne, Prussia paid GDk Adolph of Nassau 15.million florins plus interest of 4,5% per year and gave him 4 of his former castles -Schloss Biebrich, Schloss Weilburg, Jagdschloss Platte and the Luxemburgischen Schloss in Königstein.
Nice way to treat a defeated.
Had Adolph been a popular ruler ?
I read that he was extremely conservative .
Following the revolutionary wave that swept Europe around 1848, he conceeded the Nassauer Demands only to revoke them a couple of years later.
