The construction of Schloss Charlottenburg, designed as a summer residence for Sophie Charlotte, wife of the Elector Friedrich III, began in 1695. The Orangerie was extended and a cupola was added by Johann Friedrich Eosander between 1701 and 1713. Subsequent extensions were undertaken by Frederick the Great, who added the Neuer Flügel between 1740 and 1746.
