When, in 1089, Henry of Eilenburg of the House of Wettin became Margrave of Meissen, nobody could guess that his family would rule over Saxony for 829 years. A unique testimony to this success story is the Procession of Princes, located at the rear of the Stables Courtyard of Dresden Castle. Except for the last king, all the margraves, electors and kings from the House of Wettin are shown realistically on the largest porcelain image in the world. Included are also those whose names are inseparably connected with the Reformation. Without their protection and support, Martin Luther could not have succeeded and would have faced certain death.
