 Albert, Duke of Saxony - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Albert Wettin (January 27, 1443 – September 12, 1500), Duke of Saxony, surnamed the Bold or the Courageous, was the younger son of Frederick II the Gentle.
After the death of the elector Frederick in 1464, Albert and Ernest ruled their lands together, but in 1485 a division was made by the treaty of Leipzig, and Albert received Meissen, together with some adjoining districts, and founded the Albertine branch of the family of Wettin.
Regarded as a capable soldier by the emperor, Albert, in 1475, took a prominent part in the campaign against Charles the Bold, duke of Burgundy, and in 1487 led an expedition against Matthias Corvinus, king of Hungary, which failed owing to lack of support on the part of the emperor.

 CATHOLIC ENCYCLOPEDIA: Albert of Saxony
Albert of Saxony's treatises on physics consist of a "Tractatus proportionum" and questions on Aristotle's "Physics", "De Coelo", and "De generatione et corruptione".
At the beginning of the sixteenth century this theory of Albert's strongly attracted the attention of Leonardo da Vinci, and it was to confirm it that he devoted himself to numerous observations of fossils.
Albert's "Quæstiones" on the Physics, the "De Coelo", and the "De generatione", followed by the questions of Thémon and of Buridan on the "De anima", were printed in Paris in 1516 and 1518.

 Albert of Saxony
Albert's approach involves analyzing the logical and linguistic conditions of every proposition involving the term ‘infinite’ that is significant and capable of being true.
Albert is thus led to present a highly systematized theory of the forms of inference, which represents a major step forward in the medieval theory of logical deduction.
Albert was part of a general scientific trend which sought the first formulations of the principles of dynamics.

 CATHOLIC ENCYCLOPEDIA: Saxony
This old Duchy of Saxony, as it is called in distinction from the Duchy of Saxe-Wittenberg, became the centre of the opposition of the German princes to the imperial power during the era of the Franconian or Salian emperors.
Duke Ernest, the founder of the Ernestine line, received by the Partition of Leipzig the Duchy of Saxony and the electoral dignity united with it, besides the Landgravate of Thuringia; Albert, the founder of the Albertine line, received the Margravate of Meissen.
Saxony is the most densely peopled state of the empire, and indeed of all Europe; the reason is the very large immigration on account of the development of manufactures.

 Maurice of Saxony
Maurice, Elector of Saxony, elder son of Henry, Duke of Saxony, belonging to the Albertine branch of the Wettin family, was born at Freiberg on the 21st of March 1521.
Duke Henry had decreed that his lands should be divided between his two sons, but as a partition was regarded as undesirable the whole of the duchy came to his elder son.
In return the duke probably agreed to aid Charles in his proposed attack on the league as soon as he could gain the consent of the Saxon estates, or at all events to remain neutral during the impending war.

Albert, as duke of Saxony, ruled from Meissen and Northern Thuringia.
The role of Saxony in the 16th century, aside from its religious significance, advanced the economic development of the region, which contributed to the rise of art and the advance of culture.
One measure of the cultural life of Dresden is that it became a magnet to draw the dukes and duchesses of the realm to live there, which, in turn, increased the cultural life, and importance of the city.

The art collection of the palace's second owner, Duke Albert of Saxony-Teschen, was already famous in his own lifetime, 1738-1822.
Albert's grandson, Archduke Albrecht, allowed the public to view the collection in the family residence as early as 1873, but exhibition space was always limited.
Although Schröder says he is most moved by the combination of richness and simplicity of the staterooms, he adds that Duke Albert was above all a great collector of contemporary artists — a tradition followed by subsequent heads of the Albertina.

 The War with France
But, as shown already, he had just extended the truce with that country to January 1490, and in the interval of eighteen months many things might occur; but he was not going to make war before that date, at all events, and not after it without a very clear understanding with the Spanish sovereigns.
Such an understanding, however, he was himself very anxious to arrive at after the battle of St. Aubin and the death of the Duke of Britanny.
Early in October he sent new proposals to Ferdinand touching France, and pressed for an immediate answer, and in December he sent Dr. Thomas Savage and Sir Richard Nanfan to Spain with full power to conclude both the political alliance and the marriage treaty.
