Biography

German nobility, a Margrave of Brandenburg as George Albert II.

George Albert was a member of the House of Hohenzollern. He was a son of the Elector John George of Brandenburg (1525–1598) from his third marriage to Elisabeth (1563–1607), daughter of Prince Joachim Ernest of Anhalt.

In 1614, he succeeded as Grand Master (Herrenmeister) of the Order of Saint John (Johanniterorden), seated at Sonnenburg, which his older brother Frederick had headed until his own early death. After an agreement with Electoral Brandenburg, George Albert received a fief from Duke Philipp Julius of Pomerania. In 1615, he confirmed the privileges of the city of Sulęcin (German: Zielenzig).

George Albert died of smallpox at the age of 24 on 29 November 1615 in Sonnenburg (present-day Słońsk).

Sy Scholfield quotes the chronicle of events in "Allgemeine preussische staats-geschichte, samt aller dazu gehörigen königreichs, churfürstenthums, herzogthümer, fürstenthümer, graf- und herrschaften, aus bewährten schriftstellern und urkunden bis auf gegenwärtige regierung," Volumes 3-4, by Karl Friedrich Pauli (C. P. Francken, 1762), p. 299:

"George Albrecht, geboren 1591 den 20ften Nov. um 6 Uhr des Morgens, nicht aber, wie Rentsch sagt, den 19ten Nov. den 30ften Nov. wurde er getauft." [Translation: George Albrecht, born in 1591 on the 20th Nov. at 6 o'clock in the morning, and not Nov. 19th as Rentsch says. On Nov. 30th he was baptized.]
