Source Notes

Taeger quotes Lescaut quoting Cahiers Astrologiques Nr. 86, incorrectly transcribed as 1579.

Michael Keller wrote on the Forum in November 2014: "Ferdinand II was born july 1578 - not 1579. The time is right. The source: Nativitätsbiechl aller Kinder des Erzherzogs Karl (mentioned at Hurter). He died because of a lung infection. Source: Wilhelm Knappich, Die Habsburger Chronik ".
