It was there Karsch hit her highest peak of popularity, "Karsch presented herself successfully as an autodidact, as a "Naturdichterin". Frederick II agreed to give her a pension and build a house for her but her novelty at court waned and she descended into poverty. On the death of the king she approached his successor, Friedrich Wilhelm II in 1787, and he agreed to fill the promise, calling her "Deutschlands Dichterin" — Germany's poet. A house was built for Karsch, and she lived there, continuing to compose poetry, until her death in 1791. Her memorial is to be seen on the exterior wall of Berlin's Sophienkirche.
