Elizabeth of Hesse mute Elisabeth von Hessen, 1502-1557 - Princess of Hesse, married - Crown Princess of Saxony After the death of her husband, Johann of Saxonyde, took control of the plots inherited from her marriage - first of all, the Amts Rohlitz and Kribstein - to their own hands, as a result of which is also known by the name of Elizabeth of Rokhlitsky, German Elisabeth von Rochlitz - Elizabeth’s childhood passed under the sign of the confrontation of her mother Anna of Mecklenburg with the Hessian estates, who after the death of Landgraf William II in 1509 and contrary to his will took control in Hesse Having formed a special governing body under the leadership of the landmaster Ludwig von Boyneburg zu Lengsfeld, and established custody of the widowed landgrafine and her children. During this period, Elizabeth lived with her mother in Giessen, while her brother Philip remained under the control of the noble council in Kassel Since 1514, after being released from the guardianship of the council, Elizabeth of Hesse and her mother were able to return to Kassel on March 8, 1515 - after special permission from the pope - Elizabeth of Hesse was engaged to Johann of Saxony, the eldest son of George Bearded After a short time, a church marriage ceremony took place in Marburg on August 27. However, Elizabeth finally left for the Dresden court only in January 1519. Like e her mother in Kassel, in Dresden, Elizabeth of Hesse was forced to constantly fight for her independence with the Duke George, which was probably due to the childlessness of the hereditary couple. At the same time, Elizabeth proved herself a talented mediator in family affairs, repeatedly resolving disagreements between her mother and brother: both because of Anna Meklenburgskaya’s desire to remarry her son was categorically against it, and because of the spread of the Reformation in Hesse, Anna Meklenburgskaya remained firmly committed to the Catholic oh faith
After the death of her husband on January 11, 1537, the 35-year-old Elizabeth of Hesse retired to Rochlitz, who was promised to her at the conclusion of the marriage contract the Duchy of Saxony, however, was in no hurry to allocate financial resources and administrative powers to her; in 1539 this problem was resolved thanks to the mediation of her brother Philip the Magnanimous.Since 1541, she acted as an adviser to Moritz of Saxony, who entered the ducal throne, and, in addition, devoted time to raising her niece Barbara
Already from 1537, Elizabeth - with the support of her brother - in her lands she began to actively support the introduction of Protestant dogma, while her brother-in-law Georg Borodaty remained in other Saxon territories in Catholic positions. Soon, on the recommendation of his brother Philip Elise Veta of Hesse was admitted to the Schmalkalden Union - a defensive union of the Protestant princes and estates of Germany, thereby becoming the only woman of this union. In the ensuing Shmalkanden war, she managed to supply the Protestants with information important for the conduct of the armed struggle, which, however, after the defeat of the union brought her the charge of state treason Forced to leave Rokhlits, Elizabeth found refuge in the Hessian part of Schmalkalden, and since 1547 she lived in the so-called "Hessian court" While her brother was in imperial captivity in the Netherlands, she again often visited Kassel, taking on the upbringing of the children of Philip I
seriously ill in 1556, Elizabeth of Hesse died on December 6, 1557 in Schmalkalden, and was buried in the St. Petersburg church of St. Elizabeth
