Karl Theodore Korner

Author Code: GKTK

Born: Sep. 23, 1791 - Dresden, Saxony, Germany

Died: Aug. 26, 1813 - Gadebusch, Mecklenburg, Germany

The son of Christian Gottfried Korner, an eminent jurist and one of Schiller's closest friends, Karl was educated at the Kreuzschule of Dresden, the Mining Academy at Freiburg and the University of Leipzig, where he studied law. After an altercation with the police, he moved to Berlin to continue his studies. His first publication was a collection of poems, Knospen, in 1810. In 1811, he moved to Vienna and produced a number of successful plays and in 1812 he was appointed poet to the Hofburgtheater. In 1813, when Germany rose against Napoleon, Korner joined Lutzow's Corp of Volunteers. By April, he became a lieutenant and was wounded at Kitzen in June. He rejoined his corps, but was fatally wounded at a battle in Gadebusch and died at only 21 years of age. In addition to his poetry and plays, Korner also produced a number of short stories.
