Multiply reflection




Bratislava Castle
 
 
 
When Maria Theresa of Austria  became the queen
 
of the Kingdom of Hungary in 1740,
 
she promised to the nobles of the kingdom that she would have
 
a residence both in Austria  and in the Kingdom of Hungary –
 
that is in Bratislava (Pressburg) Castle.
 
 
She kept the promise and  a corresponding conversion
 
of the defense castle into a (at that time)
 
modern royal residence was performed between 1761 and 1766.
