RUSSIAN POLITICIAN AND POET
In Germany, Fyodor Ivanovich Tyutchev (1803–1873) was primarily known for poems that were rich in depth of thought, warmth of feeling and perfection of form. Tyutchev came to Germany as part of a Russian delegation and was active here for several years. It was supposedly while traveling during this time that he encountered the Sepulchral Chapel on Württemberg Hill. His poem "Rotenberg" was translated from Russian into German by Ludolf Müller in 1835.
