The details

Herman Adolph, Count of Lippe-Detmold (1616–1666) was a ruler of the county of Lippe.


He was the son Count Simon VII and his wife, Countess Anna Catherine of Nassau-Wiesbaden-Idstein (1590 -1622).

In 1659 he completed the expansion of the castle at Horn-Bad Meinberg with a splendid baroque entrance gate. The coat of arms of Herman Adolph and his wife can still be seen above this gate.

From 1663 to 1664, he fought in the 4th Austrian-Turkish war, leading a company of 140 soldiers. His soldiers returned to Lippe after the Peace of Vasvár.
