Staatliche Bibliothek Neuburg an der Donau


The print with a declaration by the Margrave Albrecht of Brandenburg (1490-1545) from the Staatliche Bibliothek Neuburg originally comes from the library of Duke Ottheinrich of Palatinate-Neuburg (1502-1559), who introduced the Reformation in his principality in 1542. The portrait on the front cover shows Ottheinrich as an elector. When Ottheinrich took over the Palatinate electoral dignity in 1556, his new status was obviously also to be visible in his library. // Author: Gerhard Robold // Date: 2018
