He trained to be a career officer. Then he was a lieutenant colonel in the 3rd Württemberg cavalry regiment. The regiment was stationed in Esslingen am Neckar , where Alexander von Württemberg lived in the Obere Palmsche Palais on the market.
The Serach Castle served as his summer residence . There he met with poets such as Emma Niendorf , Gustav Schwab , Theobald Kerner , Justinus Kerner , Ludwig Uhland and Hermann Kurz . These meetings were also called Serach Poets' Circle .
He had a deep friendship, especially with Nikolaus Lenau , as he shared Weltschmerz and melancholy with him, which shaped his condition from 1832 onwards.
