Biography

At the court of Hungary there were two parties arrayed against each other: Magyar party under the leadership of Zapolyas and the German party under the leadership of George of Brandenburg, whose authority was increased by the acquisition of the duchies of Ratibor and Oppeln by hereditary treaties with their respective dukes and of territories of Oderberg, Beuthen, and Tarnowitz as pledges from King of Bohemia, who could not redeem his debts. By further appropriation of the Duchy of Jagerndorf, George come into possession of all Upper Silesia. As owner and mortgagee of these territories, he prepared the way for the introduction of the Protestant Reformation, here as well as in his native Franconia. Earlier than any other German prince or any other member of the Hohenzollern line, including even his younger brother Albert, Grand Master of the Teutonic Order, he turned his eyes and heart to the New faith proceeding from Wittenberg.
