Christian II (23 September 1583 – 23 June 1611) was Elector of Saxony from 1591 to 1611.

He was born in Dresden, the eldest son of Christian I of Saxony and Sophie of Brandenburg.

Christian succeeded his father as Elector of Saxony in 1591 at the age of eight. Because of his youth, his kinsman, Duke Frederick Wilhelm I of Saxe-Weimar, assumed the regency of the Electorate until 1601, when Christian was declared an adult and began to govern.

In the course of the event that eventually led to the Thirty Years' War, his refusal to join the Union of Auhausen deepened the division between the Protestant German states.

In Dresden on 12 September 1602, Christian married Hedwig, daughter of the King Frederick II of Denmark. This marriage was childless. He died in Dresden in 1611.

Without direct heirs, on his death his brother Johann Georg succeeded him as Elector.

boggle

Boggle gives you 3 minutes to find as many words (3 letters or more) as you can in a grid of 16 letters. You can also try the grid of 16 letters. Letters must be adjacent and longer words score better. See if you can get into the grid Hall of Fame !
