Biography

German caterer, gastronomer and hotelier, founder and owner of the famous Hotel Adlon in Berlin (1907).

After the first world war, Lorenz Adlon remained reluctant about acknowledging the dethronement of the monarchs. For instance, he refused driving through the Brandenburg Gate by the central line, which had once been reserved for the German nobility; by this obstinacy, Adlon had suffered a severe street accident in 1918, at that spot. On 7 April 1921—again at the same place—Lorenz Adlon suffered a second accident, fatal one this time, being hit by a car.

Birth certificate quoted by Dietrich Nummert: "In Adlons Geburtsurkunde lesen wir, am 29. Mai 1849 sei vor dem Civilstandsbeamten der 32jährige Schuhmacher Jacob Adlon erschienen und habe »erklärt, daß den neunundzwanzigsten Mai achtzehnhundertneunundvierzig um ein Uhr des Morgens in dem in der Steingasse gelegenen ... Hause Anna Maria Elisabeth Schallot, Hebamme, dreißig Jahre alt, Ehefrau des genannten ..., hier wohnhaft, mit einem Kinde männlichen Geschlechtes, welchem der Vorname Laurenz beigelegt worden, niedergekommen sei«. Laurenz war das sechste Kind der Familie, drei sollten folgen."
