Electress of Saxony Agnes


German nobility, a Princess of Hesse by birth and by marriage Electress of Saxony.

Agnes was a daughter of Landgrave Philipp of Hesse and his first wife Christina of Saxony. She married the Duke and later Elector Maurice (German: Moritz) of Saxony on 9 January 1541. From this marriage, she had two children: Anna of Saxony (23 December 1544 – 18 December 1577) and Albrecht (28 November 1545 – 12 April 1546).

After her mother Christina's death in 1549, she took on the education of her younger siblings. Elector Maurice died on 9 July 1553 from his injuries in the battle of Sievershausen.

On 26 May 1555, Agnes married her second husband, Duke Johann Friedrich II of Saxony. She was already of poor health at the time, and died six months later in Weimar, on 4 November 1555, aged 28, from a miscarriage.
