Perkeo

Perkeo is back !


The small man Perkeo (Pankert Clemens, or according to other sources, Giovanni Clementi) was born 1702 in Salurn and died around 1773/80. In about 1720, Prince Philip took an interest in Pankert, and brought him along to the Heidelberg Castle. Here he was initially court dwarf, then steward and butler.

In these days Perkeo came back to his hometown.
He got the keys of the city and was greeted and celebrated by the residents.
