Ernst of Schaumburg

Deceased Person from Germany

Ernst of Schaumburg (September 24, 1569 – January 17, 1622) was the first of the Counts of Schauenburg-Pinneberg to earn the title of Prince, in 1619. However he died in 1622 without an heir. Schauenburg-Pinneberg had been a Protestant (Reformed) region since his grandfather Otto IV of Schaumburg had been won over to Martin Luther's teachings. After Ernst's death a Catholic Count, Jobst Hermann, received a portion of Schauenburg but he also died without children, and Otto V, who was a Protestant, succeeded.  ( Wikipedia article )
