After a further attack of French troops, the palace fell again in rubble and ashes. The elector, Karl-Theodor, who resided in Schwetzingen, and to whom the Heidelbergers owe thanks for the 'Alte Brücke' (old bridge) and the 'Karlstor' (Karl's gateway), tried in vain to make the palace once again inhabitable.
In the end, the French baron, Charles de Graimberg, saved the palace ruins from total destruction. He asserted the old walls no longer served as a quarry. The Heidelberger Palace became the symbol for the Romantic era. The Kings courtroom, in spite of it's gothic interior, dates from the year 1934.
