History

Under the Gastein Convention negotiated by Bismarck in 1865, Prussia obtained the Duchy of Saxe-Lauenburg from the Austrian Empire When Prussia established the German Empire in 1871, Bismarck was awarded the Saxony Forest as an endowment by Emperor Wilhelm I Bismarck built his retirement home there, next to the Berlin–Hamburg Railway He chose the site so that when he died he could be carried in state from his manor house down the railway to the mausoleum[1] Initially, Wilhelm II considered entombing Bismarck in the royal crypt of Berlin Cathedral The poet Theodor Fontane argued in favor of this, with his poem "Wo Bismarck liegen soll" "Where Bismarck should lie", which appeared in the newspaper on 3 August 1898, four days after Bismarck's death

Half a year after his death, on 16 March 1899, the coffins of Otto von Bismarck and his wife, who had been buried at the Bismarck estate in Varzin, Pomerania now Warcino, Poland, were ceremonially interred in two marble sarcophagi in the Friedrichsruh chapel This date was chosen because it was the 11th anniversary of the funeral of Kaiser Wilhelm I The funeral was attended by Wilhelm II, with his wife and a large entourage
