Hide Profile

Friedrich von Schlegel (10 March 1772 – 12 January 1829) was a German poet and philosopher; with his older brother, August Wilhelm Schlegel, he was one of the main figures of Jena Romanticism. In 1808, Schlegel was baptized into the Catholic Church leading to an estrangement from family and old friends. He moved to Austria in 1809, where he became a diplomat and journalist.
