Duke of Saxe-Römhild Heinrich


German duke, as the seventh but fourth surviving son of Ernst I the Pious of Saxe-Gotha and Elisabeth Sophie of Saxe-Altenburg. After the death of their father, in 1675, Henry and his brothers co-ruled the duchy of Saxe-Gotha-Altenburg. On 24 February 1680, after the treaty of division of the family lands with his brothers, he received Saxe-Römhild, which consisted of the cities of Römhild, Königsberg (now in Bavaria), Themar, Behrungen and Milz and the fiefdom of Echter.

In Darmstadt on 1 March 1676, Henry married Marie Elisabeth of Hesse-Darmstadt, daughter of Ludwig VI of Hesse-Darmstadt. They had no children.

The sideline of Römhild died out with his death on 13 May 1710, aged 59.

Source Notes

Sy Scholfield quotes from "Ernst der Fromme, Herzog zu Sachsen-Gotha und Altenburg: ein Beitrag zur Geschichte des 17. Jahrhunderts, Part 1" by August Beck (Böhlau, 1865), p. 781: "Heinrich war geboren Dienstags den 9. November 1650 Morgens vor 6 Uhr" (Heinrich was born on Tuesday, 9 November 1650, in the morning before six o'clock). This is clearly a typo as the 19th Old Style was a Tuesday.
