Ferdinand Albert, Duke of Brunswick-Lüneburg, was a relative of the princes of Brunswick-Wolfenbüttel.
Ferdinand Albert was the third son of Augustus the Younger, Duke of Brunswick-Lüneburg. After the father's death in 1666, the three sons quarreled about the heritage, and Ferdinand Albert received a palace in Bevern, some feudal rights, and a certain amount of money in exchange for his claims to the government of Wolfenbüttel, which was to be ruled jointly by his elder brothers.
Ferdinand Albert grew more and more eccentric, and at some point his brothers had to send a military force to restore order at his palace. He collected many works of art, which later became part of the Herzog Anton Ulrich Museum. He died in 1687; his son, Ferdinand Albert, inherited the Principality decades later.
