Opulence no longer in fashion
After King Friedrich I of Württemberg ordered the erection of the majestic throne ensemble in 1807, the Order Hall was not seen again in its original design. The king ordered the outdated Baroque stucco on the walls to be replaced with neoclassical pilasters. However the ceiling fresco by Pietro Scotti was simply painted over. It was uncovered again in 1939 to reveal its architectural perspective paintings and the outlook into the realm of gods.
