    Christiane Vulpius came from a poor family. Her father Johann Friedrich Vulpius, official archivist in Weimar, i.e. file copyist, had studied law for several semesters, but discontinued his studies. His job was badly paid, the family lived in very precarious conditions, especially since his father did everything to make it possible for his eldest son Christian August to study. Christiane was forced to accept a job as a plasterer in a small Weimar manufactory with Caroline Bertuch. This was al...

    Christiane was the one woman that should change the life of the most prominent writer of his age to become his wife and the mother of his children. And they should only meet by chance. Christiane Vulpius was a comely damsel of 23 years when Goethe met her, with golden curling locks, rosy cheeks, laughing eyes and a neatly rounded figure. She met Goethe on 12 July 1788 as she spoke to him to ask for help for her brother, who needed support as a starting writer. In fact, Goethe later spoke up s...

    Goethe took the young woman into his house together with her half-sister Ernestine and her aunt Juliane; the two women’s sphere of influence was completely limited to the house and garden. The Weimar court and society rejected the illegitimate and improper connection, so that Goethe, on the advice of the duke, had to leave the house at the Frauenplan in the centre of Weimar and move temporarily to the “Jägerhaus” in Marienstraße.This changed only around 1806. After death of his close friend a...

    Nothing in Goethe’s life has been so misunderstood and misrepresented as his relations with Christiane Vulpius. She was always treated as a wife, and very much better than most wives, the two being united by bonds more indissoluble than those of the church. Christiane was from a much lower rank in society; but she understood Goethe’s nature as no one else did. Christiane loved the theatre. She visited plays in Weimar as well as in other places. As she grew older, Christiane’s state of health...

    In 1788, when Chris­tiane was a young woman of Weimar, Goethe ad­dressed to her the Römis­che Elegien, an ep­i­thal­a­mium. They lived to­gether quasi-mar­i­tally from 1788 until their mar­riage in 1806, and af­ter­ward until her death in 1816, to the scan­dal of the ladies of Weimar and the vex­a­tion of Bet­tina von Arnim-Brentano. Friedrich Schiller's wife Char­lotte von Lenge­feldwrote of Goethe after Chris­tiane's death, "The poor man wept bit­terly. It grieves me that he should shed tears for such objects." Chris­tiane, who is buried in the Ja­cob­s­fried­hof in Weimar, was the sis­ter of Chris­t­ian Au­gust Vulpius.

    Chris­tiane Vulpius and Goethe had a son, Julius Au­gust Walther von Goethe (25 De­cem­ber 1789 – 28 Oc­to­ber 1830), who be­came cham­ber­lain to the Grand Duke of Saxe-Weimar, and died while on a visit to Rome. He mar­ried Ot­tilie von Pog­wisch (31 Oc­to­ber 1796 – 26 Oc­to­ber 1872), a highly ac­com­plished woman. She later cared for Goethe until he died in 1832. Julius Au­gust and Ot­tilie had three chil­dren: Walther Wolf­gang, Frei­herr von Goethe (9 April 1818 – 15 April 1885), known as a com­poser of op­erettas and songs; Wolf­gang Max­i­m­il­ian, Frei­herr von Goethe (18 Sep­tem­ber 1820 – 20 Jan­u­ary 1883), a ju­rist and poet; and Alma von Goethe (29 Oc­to­ber 1827 – 29 Sep­tem­ber 1844).
