Charlot′tenburg is a large suburb lying to the west of Berlin. It is visited by tourists for the sake of the royal palace, built here in 1696 by Frederick I for his second wife, Sophia. The grounds and statuary are of great beauty. Charlottenburg has become the seat of many factories; and its population, which in 1871 was estimated at less than 20,000, has multiplied no less than tenfold.
