About Friedrich V, Burggraf von Nürnberg

Friedrich V, Burggraf von Nürnberg

  • Son of Johann II, Burgrave of Nuremberg-Zollern and Elisabeth von Henneberg-Schleusingen, Burggräfin zu Nürnberg

Frederick V, Burgrave of Nuremberg, by Wikipedia

He was the elder son of John II, Burgrave of Nuremberg and Elisabeth of Henneberg. From the death of his father in 1357, Frederick bore the title of Burgrave and so was responsible for the protection of the strategically significant imperial castle of Nuremberg. His zeal in the imperial cause led Charles IV to elevate him in 1363 to be the first Burgrave of royal rank.

After his death, his sons divided their inheritance. The eldest son, John III became the first Margrave of Brandenburg-Kulmbach. Johann's brother Frederick VI became the next Burgrave of Nuremberg as well as the first Margrave of Brandenburg-Ansbach. Frederick VI went on to become the first Hohenzollern Elector of Brandenburg.
