Following his untimely death his widow, Therese Krupp (1790 - 1850), continues to run the small business with a handful of employees, helped by her then 14 year old eldest son Alfred (1812-1887).

biography - German diplomat and industrialist

—died Jan. 16, 1950, Blühnbach, near Salzburg, Austria), German diplomat who married the heiress of the Krupp family of industrialists, Bertha Krupp, and took over operation of the family firm. At the time of their wedding, the Krupp name was added to his own. Bertha’s father, Friedrich Krupp, committed suicide in scandal in 1902, having been exposed in the newspapers as a homosexual. Because it was deemed unthinkable for the Krupp armament empire to be run by a woman, the emperor William II personally sought an acceptable husband for the young Bertha (1886–1957), eventually choosing Gustav von Bohlen und Halbach, a Prussian diplomat.

They were married on Oct. 15, 1906, and Gustav was authorized by the emperor to add the name Krupp to his own. In World War I, Gustav Krupp made many contributions to Germany’s arsenal.

Alfried Krupp von Bohlen und Halbach

—died July 30, 1967, Essen, W.Ger.), German industrialist, last member of the Krupp dynasty of munitions manufacturers. Alfried Krupp was the son of Bertha Krupp, the heiress of the Krupp industrial empire, and Gustav Krupp von Bohlen und Halbach. Shortly after the outbreak of World War II it became evident that his father was drifting into senility. Alfried assumed his duties, and in 1943 Adolf Hitler issued an unprecedented decree, the Lex Krupp (“Krupp Law”), which, abolishing in this one case the laws of inheritance, preserved the firm as a family property. Alfried now assumed the name of Krupp and became the sole owner of his mother’s vast holdings. German company. Krupp AG, also known as Fried.

German company

Krupp, former German corporation that was one of the world’s principal steelmakers and arms manufacturers until the end of World War II. For the rest of the 20th century it was an important manufacturer of industrial machinery and materials. It became a limited-liability company in 1968 when its assets were transferred from the private ownership of the Krupp family to the Alfried Krupp von Bohlen und Halbach Foundation. The corporation merged with Thyssen AG in 1999, creating ThyssenKrupp AG, a leading global manufacturer of steel, construction materials, automotive parts and assemblies, and industrial and mechanical services. The history of the Krupp industrial empire is essentially the history of the Krupp family through much of the 19th and 20th centuries. Under the direction of Alfred’s son, Friedrich Alfred Krupp (1854–1902), the business experienced enormous expansion resulting from the rise of the German navy and the demand for armour plate.

Elle était à l'origine le siège d'un couvent aristocratique fondé en 852, dont subsiste la cathédrale (Münsterkirche, où siège aujourd'hui un évêché catholique), achevée au xve siècle. Une abbatiale fut fondée en 796, au sein d'un monastère, dans le faubourg de Werden. Le couvent et l'abbaye exercèrent la souveraineté locale en tant qu'États impériaux jusqu'à leur dissolution en 1802, date à laquelle Essen est rattachée à la Prusse.

Le développement des ateliers sidérurgiques et des mines de charbon au xixe siècle stimulèrent l'essor rapide d'Essen, petite bourgade d'environ 3 000 habitants en 1802, qui devint la plus grande ville industrielle du bassin houiller de la Ruhr. Autrefois au cœur de la première industrie de la ville, les mines de charbon ont aujourd'hui fermé leurs portes. Les quartiers sud d'Essen s'ouvrent sur des bois et des parcs. Germany. Essen, Villa HügelArchiv für Kunst und Geschichte, Berlincity, North Rhine–Westphalia Land (state), western Germany. It is situated between the Rhine-Herne Canal and the Ruhr River. Essen was originally the seat of an aristocratic convent (founded 852), still represented by the cathedral (Münsterkirche; now the seat of a Roman Catholic bishop), completed in the 15th century. In the suburb of Werden the abbey church was founded in 796 as part of a monastery.

The convent and the abbey exercised local sovereignty as imperial states until their dissolution in 1802, when Essen passed to Prussia.
