  Johann Wilhelm, Elector Palatine - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Johann Wilhelm II, Elector Palatine, also known as Johann Wilhelm von Pfalz-Neuburg, (April 19, 1658 – June 8, 1716) was Elector Palatine (1690-1716), Duke Palatine of Neuburg/Danube (1690-1716), Duke of Jülich and Berg (1679-1716), and Duke of Upper Palatinate and Cham (1707-1714).
He was the son of Philipp Wilhelm von Pfalz-Neuburg and Elisabeth Amalie von Hessen-Darmstadt and was born in Düsseldorf, where he resided, rather than in Heidelberg, which had been largely destroyed.
In the Peace of Rijswijk (1697), he was restored to many of the possessions which had been taken by the French, with the provision that the Palatine not revert to Protestantism.
