Biography[edit]

Georg Marschalk von Ebnet was a member of the Marschalk von Ebnet family, which derived its name from being hereditary Marshal of Ebnet, now a district of Burgkunstadt.[1]

The cathedral chapter of Bamberg Cathedral elected Marschalk von Ebnet to be Prince-Bishop of Bamberg on 19 September 1503.[2] Pope Julius II confirmed his appointment on 11 December 1503.[2]

He died on 30 January 1505 without ever having been consecrated as a bishop.[2]
