Johann Gottlieb Blümner

from Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Johann Gottlieb Blümner (born May 10, 1763 in Strehlen , † February 17, 1837 in Breslau ) was a Prussian civil servant.


Johann Gottlieb Blümner was born the son of a surgeon who later took the position of excise collector in Munsterberg and was transferred to Breslau as chief excise collector; he had five siblings.

Johann Gottlieb Blümner attended the city ​​school in Münsterberg and, after he had mastered the Latin language a little, he went back to his grandfather in Strehlen to take part in the lessons of a theology candidate.

From 1775 he attended high school in Hirschberg until 1779 , but was unable to study for lack of financial reasons, but gave lessons in French while attending the high school in order to earn a living.

In 1779 he became supernumarius (civil servant candidate) at the excise office in Münsterberg and after a year and a half an excise officer in Kartschen in Upper Silesia .

In 1783 King Friedrich II cut the civil servant positions that had not served in the military, this also affected Johann Gottlieb Blümner, who then had a certificate issued by the Accis management in Neisse about his management and the reason for his dismissal and traveled with his father to Baron Adolph von Danckelmann , Minister of Justice at the time , whom his father knew from childhood. He soon hired Johann Gottlieb Blümner as an office assistant, after he had refused his re-employment at Excise; the excise directorate had admitted a mistake and wanted to reinstate him as the son of an officer so that he could take over his father's position.

In 1790 Johann Gottlieb Blümner became Ministerial Registrar, but shortly afterwards he lost an important sponsor due to the resignation of the Minister of Justice.

In 1800 he was promoted to the senior official government advance loan . In 1809 he was given the position of a render of the advance fund combined with the salary fund (salary fund) at the Breslau Higher Regional Court , a position he held until his retirement in 1829.

In 1798 he married the daughter of the baker elder Rühl from Breslau; they had six children together, but only his wife and two children survived.


In 1824 he received, at the suggestion of the Higher Regional Court President Karl von Falkenhausen (1760-1835), from King Friedrich Wilhelm III. bestowed the title of royal councilor .
