The Palais Thurn und Taxis (German: [paˈleː ˈtuːɐ̯n ʊnt ˈtaksɪs]) in Frankfurt, Germany was built from 1731 to 1739 by Robert de Cotte commissioned by the Prince Reichserbgeneralpostmeisters (English: Imperial Hereditary General Postmaster) Anselm Franz von Thurn und Taxis (1714–1739). The building was heavily damaged in World War Two and then demolished. Today a reconstruction houses some shops. == History == The palace has a very checkered history: 1748 it was the seat of the Imperial Headquarters of Thurn and Taxis post, from 1805 to 1813 the residence of the Prince Primate and the Grand Duke of Frankfurt, Karl Theodor von Dalberg. After the restoration of the Free City of Frankfurt here was held the Bundestag from 1816 to 1866, the Federal Assembly of the German Confederation.Read more
