In Europe’s Bohemian garnet museum, there is a piece of red garnet that already sleeps a few hundred years; she sleeps there quietly telling each visitor a beautiful love story.
Ulrike is the owner of this garnet stone; she is the last lover of the famous poet Goethe. When 17 years old young Ulrike first met 72 years old Goethe, she falls in love with Goethe. But due to the huge age difference, her love gets big obstacles. But the headstrong young girl’s love was strong as the garnet stone in her family. Every time when she went dating with Goethe she will take that garnet stone, she deeply believes that the garnet stone will transfer her love to Goethe. She let the garnet bear witness to her constancy love.
Maybe the garnet stone really works; Goethe was deeply touched by Ulrike’s love, and thus, a great ancient poem “Marienbad Elegy” was born. Ulrike remained a bachelor woman for all her life and died at the age of 95.
