MORE DETAILS

 The powerful Von Gallas family were from northern Bohemia. Johan Wenzel Von Gallas built a palace in Prague in the early 18th Century. When the male line died out, Christian Philip Von Clam inherited estates from his uncle in 1757, and the Clam-Gallas line was created. You can see the arms above the massive doors to the palace, the family seat. Beethoven and Mozart performed concerts here for the family.

Motto, "Recte Faciendo Neminem Time". By acting justly, I fear nobody. The motto was commonly seen on Brunswick silver Thaler coins. Also Prussian coinage of Frederick I.
