  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.

The foundations of the collection of Flemish paintings was laid by the Wittelsbach Elector, Duke Maximilian I of Bavaria (ruled 1597-1651), for whom Rubens executed four hunting scenes, and his cousin, Duke Wolfgang Wilhelm of the Palatine-Neuburg (ruled 1614-1654), who commissioned four altarpieces from the Flemish painter.
The collecting tradition was continued by their respective grandsons Maximilian II Emanuel of Bavaria (ruled 1679-1726), and Johann Wilhelm of the Palatine-Neuburg (ruled 1690-1716).
Johann Wilhelm’s famous collection in Düsseldorf was united with that in Munich when upon the extinction of the Wittelsbach line in 1777, the Palatine line inherited the Electorate of Bavaria.

The Elector Palatine, the archdukes of Austria held from the Emperor the power of ennoblement and used it within their domains independently of the emperor from the 16th c., soon followed in the 17th century by several other states (Prussia, Bavaria).

The electoral conclusum of the same day adopted the modified wording, and the draft of a collegial letter to the emperor asking that a more precise definition of mismarriages to resolve doubtful cases be the subject of imperial legislation.

The exhibition indeed intends to offer the public a broader picture in art and collecting, centred on the figure of the Electress Palatine and, through her, on that of her father Cosimo II, her brother Ferdinando, and her husband Johann Wilhelm, among the greatest patrons and collectors in Europe at that time.
