The typeface’s infuences and naming go way back to legendary German type designer Ferdinand Theinhardt and his revolutionary typeset ‘Royal Grotesk’ (1880) designed for the publications of the “Königlich-Preußischen Akademie der Wissenschaften zu Berlin”. After selling his own type foundry ‘Ferd. Theinhardt Schriftgiesserei Berlin’ Theinhardt’s ‘Royal Grotesk’ later became internationally successful as Berthold’s Akzidenz Grotesk (1896) — the godmother of all modern grotesque typefaces.
