Arvydas Juozaitis' play "Queen Luise" reviews the royal era of Klaipeda - 1807-1808, when the port city became the capital of Prussia. Then, running from Napoleon Bonaparte, the royal family - King of Prussia Frederick Wilhelm III with Queen Luise and the children - settled in Memel. It was Louis, not his husband, Wilhelm Friedrich, who brought together a coalition of states against Napoleon. Napoleon Luiz admired and hated her. The contemporaries called it the brightest angel, the holy, Prussian star in storm clouds. Who was this woman - adored Queen, Mother, who raised ten children? Where are its incredible fortress secrets?
