Duke of Saxe-Eisenach Albrecht (1760)


Duke of Saxe-Eisenach as the seventh (but fourth surviving) son of Johann, Duke of Saxe-Weimar, and Dorothea Maria of Anhalt. His regnal name Albrecht IV derives from the numbering of the duchy of Saxony as a whole, not specifically to the succession in Saxe-Eisenach.

In the years 1619-1621 he completed his Cavalierstour (Study Tour) with his younger brother Johann Friedrich. The two princes travelled to France and Switzerland.

In Weimar on 24 June 1633 Albrecht married Dorothea of Saxe-Altenburg, daughter of Friedrich Wilhelm I, Duke of Saxe-Weimar. The marriage was childless.

In accordance with a divisionary treaty concluded with his brothers, Albrecht received Eisenach in 1640. He died four years later, on 20 December 1644, after which his state was merged with Saxe-Weimar under Wilhelm of Saxe-Weimar.
