Work on the Hofkirche (Royal Chapel) started during the reign of Frederick August II, under the oversight of Italian architect Gaetano Chiaveri, who designed the church in the Romanesque style of the late baroque period. The foundation stone was laid in 1739 with construction completed in 1754, whereafter the church became the coronation and burial place for generations of Saxon kings.
