Christiane Eberhardine von Brandenburg-Bayreuth
Birth: Dec. 29, 1671
Death: Sep. 4, 1727

Nobility, Electress of Saxony and titular Queen of Poland. She was the eldest daughter of Margrave Christian Ernst of Bayreuth and Sophie von Württemberg and married Friedrich August von Sachsen in 1693. She gave birth to a son three years later who was named after the father. Hurt by her husbands unfaithfulness and by his convertion to Catholicism she left Dresden and lived in the Castles of Pretzsch and Torgau. Because of her Protestant beliefs she was never crowned Queen of Poland. The cultural live at her courts flourished during her reign, but she also cared for orphans in the surrounding villages. She died at age 55 and was buried far away from husband and son. (bio by: Lutetia)
