Life

Albert II, German king from 1438, king of Hungary, king of Bohemia, and Duke of Luxembourg. As a member of the Habsburg dynasty, he was archduke of Austria from infancy. On the death of his father-in-law, Holy Roman emperor Sigismund, Albert was crown king of Hungary, elected king of Germany, and, despite opposition, actually crown king of Bohemia. Calling diet at Nurnberg, he ended all feuds based on the right of private warfare and appointed arbiters to settle disputes. He further divides Germany into administrative circles, again with the maintenance of peace in mind. Although he died the following year during the campaign against Turks, rule of Alberts successors was stabilized through implementation of his measures.
