Born 1863-02-09 in Germany dead 1939-01-20 in Germany .

Born on February 9, 1863, south of Berlin in Lower Elbe, Julius Seeth left his family in 1880 to train in wild animal training with Wilhelm Hagenbeck in Hamburg. After his training, he puts on his wild numbers; his largest Group included 25 lions with whom he worked in various circuses. At the start of his career, he worked for a few years until 1884 under the name Julius Batty in reference to William Batty, a famous English trainer who had achieved great success touring Europe in the 1860s.

1905: In 1905 he became a shareholder and manager in the new stable Albert Schuman Circus in Frankfurt City in which he died on January 20, 1939.

When Hagenbeck’s trainer, Julius Seeth, appeared with 21 lions at the long-awaited opening of the London Hippodrome in 1900, he was costumed in quasi-military dress. Hagenbeck’s trainers had risen to prominence wearing evening dress, now even their acts had succumbed to the prevailing aesthetic of army dress.
