This is what Donald Gene Henderson had to say:

Archival sources in Dresden indicate that the decision to bring back Weber's remains to Dresden with an accompanying ceremony was very controversial. Conservative elements at court, including Karl Winkler (Theodor Hell), opposed the project. Maintains that the division between supporters and opponents of the reburial was similar to the division between liberals and conservatives in the 1848 revolution four years later.
