THE ANTEROOM TO THE ANCESTRAL HALL
The anteroom to the ancestral hall is bright, welcoming and adorned with elegant stucco. Baroque and Rococo décor merge in the tightest spaces here. The arched openings to the staircase depict trophies of war and figures of captive Turks - a reference to Ludwig Wilhelm's victories in the Turkish Wars, an often-repeated motif throughout the palace. The playful Rococo stucco, also seen in the garden room, was part of the modernization commissioned by Ludwig Georg in 1747.
