 Albert III, Margrave of Brandenburg - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Albert III (in German Albrecht Achilles), (9 November 1414 – 11 March 1486), Margrave of Brandenburg, given the cognomen Achilles because of his knightly qualities, was the third son of Frederick I of Brandenburg of Hohenzollern, elector of Brandenburg, later Burgrave of Nuremberg, and was born at Tangermunde.
In 1470 Albert, who had inherited Bayreuth on the death of his brother John in 1464, became Margrave of Brandenburg owing to the abdication of his remaining brother, the elector Frederick II.
Albert was a man of relentless energy and boundless ambition, who by reason of his physical and intellectual qualities was one of the most prominent princes of the 15th century.

 Albert I of Brandenburg - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Taking the title "margrave of Brandenburg", he pressed the "crusade" against the Wends, extended the area of his mark, encouraged German migration, established bishoprics under his protection, and so became the founder of the margraviate of Brandenburg in 1157, which his heirs—the Ascanians"—held until the line died out in 1320.
It was possibly at this time that Albert was made arch-chamberlain of the Empire, an office which afterwards gave the margraves of Brandenburg the rights of a prince-elector.
A feud with Henry's son, Henry the Lion, duke of Saxony, was interrupted, in 1158, by a pilgrimage to the Holy Land, and in 1162 Albert accompanied the Emperor Frederick Barbarossa to Italy, and distinguished himself at the storming of Milan.

 CATHOLIC ENCYCLOPEDIA: Albert of Brandenburg
Albert employed Tetzel for the actual preaching of the Indulgence and furnished him a book of instructions: "Instructio summaria ad Subcommissarios Poenitentiarum et Confessores." Later, Martin Luther addressed a letter of protest to Albert concerning the conduct of Tetzel, found fault with the Bishop's book of instructions, and asked him to suppress it.
Luther's charges are altogether groundless; the instructions of Albert to the preachers are both wise and edifying.
Though many of the accusations against Albert's morals were, doubtless, false, Luther was probably justified in thinking that he would findin Albert a strong partisan.
