 Albert of Prussia - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
During the ensuing year Prussia was devastated, and Albert was granted a four-year truce early in 1521.
This proposal, which was understandably appealing to Albert, had already been discussed by some of his relatives, but it was necessary to proceed cautiously, and he assured Pope Adrian VI that he was anxious to reform the Order and punish the knights who had adopted Lutheran doctrines.
Albert was a voluminous letterwriter, and corresponded with many of the leading personages of the time.

Ducal Prussia and the Kingdom of Prussia, to 1786.
In 1850 Austria challenged this union, and Prussia was obliged to abandon its ambitions by the Punctation of Olmütz (Nov. 29, 1850).
Northern East Prussia was annexed by the Soviet Union; the rest of the Land east of the Oder-Neisse line was transferred to Poland; and the remainder was divided between the Soviet, British, and French zones of occupation.

Her favourite Prime Minister, Benjamin Disraeli, persuaded her to assume, by Royal Proclamation of April 28, 1876, the title of "Empress of India," reflecting the fact that she had presided over a massive expansion of the British Empire and the continued rise of Britain as an industrial power.

 PBS : Empires : Queen Victoria : The Changing Empire : Characters : Prince Albert
Prince Albert's father, Duke Ernest of Coburg, was a brother of Queen Victoria's mother, the widowed Duchess of Kent.
Although Albert's role at the start, despite desks in tandem, was only to wield the blotting paper for her signature, and he chafed at his being far less than the master in his own house, biology altered the marital and political balance.
With peace, Albert turned to the education of the Prince of Wales, Albert Edward, who seemed unadaptable to Albertine rigor, and the betrothal of the truly Albertine Princess Victoria to the future crown prince of Prussia, Frederick.

Missionary activity was brought by the empire to Pomerania from the west and to eastern Prussia coming from the east via Riga.
The feeling of grief felt by the citizens of Gdansk when their city was incorporated into the state of Prussia is well reflected in the pessimistic philosophy of Arthur Schopenhauer.
From 1824 until 1878, East and West Prussia were combined as a single province under the Prussian kingdom.

The main feeder of Albert Edward Nyanza, and western head-stream of the Nile, the Ruchuru, rises on the north side of the volcanoes north of Lake Kivu (see MJUMBIRO).
A feature of Lake Albert Edward Nyanza is the thick haze which overhangs the water during the dry season, blotting out from view the mountains.
The entire area of Albert Edward Nyanza was found, by the work of the Anglo-German Boundary Commission of 1902-1904, to lie within the limits of the sphere of influence of the Congo Free State as defined in the agreement of the I2th of May 1894 between that state and Great Britain.

Luther for his part did not stop at the suggestion, but in order to facilitate the change made special efforts to spread his teaching among the Prussians, while Albert's brother, Georg, Prince of Ansbach, laid the scheme before their uncle Sigismund of Poland.
Summoned before the imperial court of justice, Albert refused to appear and was proscribed, while the Order, having deposed the Grand Master, made a feeble effort to recover Prussia.
But as the German princes were experiencing the tumult of the Reformation, the peasants' revolt, and the wars against the conquering Turks, they did not attack the duke, and agitation against him soon died away.

Joachim I (reigned 1499–1535) introduced the Roman law into Brandenburg; under his sons and heirs, Elector Joachim II and John, Lutheranism was accepted and the lands of secularized bishoprics were taken over by the dynasty.
At his death on May 9, 1688, the state of Brandenburg, with Prussia behind it, was inferior to Austria alone among the principalities of the empire.
It was at length decided that the kingly title should be taken from Prussia rather than from Brandenburg because the former country lay outside the empire, and in return Frederick promised to assist Leopold with 8,000 men.

"After the royal family entered the Riding House, Queen Victoria and Prince Albert came in and to the front, where I was introduced to her Majesty and the Prince Consort, while sitting on the back of a large wild colt, which stood perfectly quiet with its head up.
When Queen Victoria and Prince Albert entered, they found the animal lying down, and I lying beside him, with one of his hind feet under my head and the other over my chest.
This colt was led in by a halter and left alone with the horse tamer, who intimated a wish that the company would retire for a few minutes to the farther end of the building.

Old Prince Albert of Prussia, his father, was married to the eccentric and half-crazy Princess Marianne of the Netherlands.

 Johanna Amelia Mueller-[455]
IGI confirms that Johanna Amelia is the daughter of Fredrick and Johanna Haupt Mueller and marriage to Albert Fenzke with 4 "unavailable" children listed.
That record is unsource, giving her birthdate as "About 1814", which would relieve current conflicts as to her 1824 birthdate making her really too young to start having children in 1837.
The last child "Tilla" b.1862 doesn't seem to fit well into this picture either, as their previous child Albertina was born 1853.

 CATHOLIC ENCYCLOPEDIA: Friedrich Staphylus
In 1546 Duke Albert of Prussia appointed Staphylus professor of theology at the new University of Königsberg, which the duke had founded in 1544.
At this time Staphylus was still under the influence of Luther's opinions, as is shown by his academic disputation upon the doctrine of justification, "De justificationis articulo".
In 1560 Duke Albert of Bavaria, at the request of Canisius, appointed Staphylus professor of theology at the Bavarian University of Ingolstadt after Staphylus had received the Degree of Doctor of Theology and Canon Law in virtue of a papal dispensation, as he was married.
