Sibylle of Brandenburg
She married Duke Wilhelm von Jülich and Berg (1455–1511) in Cologne on July 25, 1481 . The wedding was celebrated very lavishly. In addition to numerous archbishops, bishops and prelates, the Archduke of Austria, the Duke of Burgundy, the Elector of Brandenburg, the Margrave of Baden, more than 50 counts and countless nobles were invited. Because of the great crowd, the marriage was concluded in the open in front of Cologne's Severinstor by Archbishop Hermann IV of Cologne .
Wilhelm wrote to his brothers-in-law several times, concerned and in writing, about his wife's bride and groom . After ten years the only child in the marriage was born, a girl. Jülich and Berg therefore fell to his son-in-law after Wilhelm's death. Sibylle outlived her husband by 13 years.
Sibylle is buried in Altenberg Cathedral .
