Sibylle Elisabeth von Württemberg


German royalty, a Princess of Württemberg and by marriage, Duchess of Saxony.

Sibylle Elisabeth was the oldest daughter of Duke Friedrich I of Württemberg (1557–1608) out of his marriage to Sibylla of Anhalt (1564–1614), daughter of Prince Joachim Ernest, Prince of Anhalt. She married John George I, Elector of Saxony on 16 September 1604. As wittum, she was given the castle, city, and jurisdiction of Weißensee. The couple were granted a separate court which was mainly financed with revenue from the Bishopric of Merseburg. Sybille Elisabeth was known for providing free medicines to the needy, but suddenly died of a serious fever before age 22 (at Dresden, 20 January 1606) at the birth of their only child, a stillborn son. She was buried in Freiburg Cathedral (also known as St Mary's Cathedral).
