Christopher Dukeof Wurtemberg

Christopher, Duke of Wurtemberg, born in 1515, on reaching years of discretion adopted Lutheranism, and boldly asserted the claims of his father Ulric against the oppression of the Emperor Charles V. The battle of Laufen restored Ulric to his dominions, in which he was succeeded by Christopher, who abolished Catholicism in Wurtemberg, applying the revenues of the Church to educational purposes, especially to the theological university of Tubingen. He died in 1568.
