The Duke of Brunswick died in Geneva in 1873. He left the city a large sum of money. One of the terms of his will stipulated that the city was to build a mausoleum in an eminent and worthy location without consideration of cost. The Mausolee du Duc de Brunswick, in the style of Scglieri's tomb in Verona is located on the south bank of the lake.
