Long Description:
[DE]
Als Maria Theresia Miklós Esterhazy im Schloss besucht hat, hat sie der Prinz mit großer Pracht empfangen. Den Palast hat er mit einem großen Saal erweitert, um die Feier dort halten zu können, aber dieser Saal ist noch vor der Ankunft der Königin abgebrannt. Dann hat der Prinz ein kleines Schloss für Eure Hoheit plötzlich im Park bauen lassen, wo die Feier stattfand. Nach so einer Feier fragte Maria Theresia vom Prinzen, was dieses wunderschönes Schloss gekostet hat.
- Achtzigtausend Fortint.
- O, das ist für einen Fürsten Esterhazy eine Bagatelle!

Kaum haben sie sich eines gedreht, schon glänzte dieses Wort über den Tor des Schlosses: Bagatelle. Von der an war es der Name des prachtvollen Gebäudes.

When Maria Theresa visited Nikolaus Esterházy in his palace in Eszterháza, the prince gave her a royal welcome. He extended the palace with an enormous hall where the celebration would be held but this wing of the building had burned down a short time before the queen’s arrival. The prince then immediately decided to have a small mansion built for Her Majesty in the park, in which garden entertainment took place.

After a night like this, Maria Theresa asked the prince how much this wonderful little mansion had cost.
- Eighty thousand forints.
- 'O, das ist für einen Fürsten Esterhazy eine Bagatelle!’ (Oh! This is a fillip for an Esterházy Prince!)
In a bat of an eye, the word "Bagatelle" was glaring above the gate of the mansion. This has been the name of the luxurious building since then.
