Calvinist[edit]

So, was he a calvinist? If he was Lutheran instead, change WPCalvinism above to WPLutheranism

yes, a Calvinist. If he had been a Lutheran, the princes probably would have supported him. But Calvinism was a heresy then, not an approved form in the Augsburg Peace 1555.Auntieruth55 (talk) 02:04, 9 July 2009 (UTC)

Military History[edit]

added template because his notability rests in large part upon his triggering the Cologne War.Auntieruth55 (talk) 02:44, 7 October 2009 (UTC)

    Excellent article, Ruth! Deserves to pass. Just one thing, is there much literature in regards to his personal life? It would be nice to have that extra little bit of detail. -- Jack1755 (talk) 21:10, 26 October 2009 (UTC)
Hi Jack, no very little on his personal life. I might uncover some later when I do an article on the House of Waldburg, but so far, very little. Auntieruth55 (talk) 14:15, 27 October 2009 (UTC)
