Sophie of Liegnitz(1525-1546)
« on: July 26, 2007, 12:31:02 PM »
Sophie of Liegnitz(1525-1546) , first wife of Elector Johann Georg of Brandenburg (1525-98) seems to have died shortly after the birth of her only son, who is the ancestor of all the Brandenburg Hohenzollerns. She is therefore their ancestress as well. I have searched high and low and can find very little info on her. Does anybody have any info and is there a portrait of her anywhere?
