Philip Cluver (Cluwer, Cluvier or Cluverius) (1580 – 1623), German geographer and historian, was born in Danzig in Prussia (Civitates Liber Imperiales Dantiscum quae Gedanum Borussiae), Free Imperial City Danzig, (since 1945 Gdansk, Poland)

correct -- the city of Danzig appears to have refused to join the kingdom of Poland in 1575, and successfully withstood a siege in 1577, thus remaining a free imperial city at the time of Clüver's birth. --dab (𒁳) 19:13, 7 November 2008 (UTC)
