About Johann Paul Achilles Jung

Paul's wife's family, the Preiswerks, were Swiss citizens with an impeccably conservative lineage, of the vom Tieg, the oldest patrician families in Basel. The Jungs were newcomers who became accidentally Swiss when their German patriarch, Dr. Med. Carl Gustav I Jung, was exiled for political agitation. He became notorious among the good burghers of Basel, not only for his liberal political views but also for the story he so enjoyed telling, that he was an illegitimate son of the poet Goethe, who is said to have had a relationship with his mother.
