Source Notes

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. 427: "Sophia, geboren 1[4]85 den 10ten Marz früh zwischen 2 und 3 Uhr." [born between 2 and 3 o'clock in the early hours]. Her birth year is listed as 1585 but is obviously a misprint because she is in the chronological list of births between her siblings George (1484) and Anna (1487).
