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 ".

Sy Scholfield has same data from Geschichte Kaiser Ferdinands II. Und seiner Eltern, bis zu dessen Krönung in Frankfurt. Volume 2 (Hurter, 1850), page 230: "Ferdinand , nachmals Erbe aller habsburgischen Länder deutscher Linie , Nömischer Kaiser , geboren den 19. Juli 1578 , ein Viertel nach drei Uhr Vormittags , getauft durch den Bischof von Seccau am 23. Juli ; gestorben den 15. Februar 1637."
