  • Notes 
    • Duke of Kleve (Cleves). "[A] public-spirited ruler who simplified the legal system, insured the maintenance of dikes and drains throughout his lands, raised to Duke by the emperor Sigmund, preserved the independence of his duchy from the ambitions of his powerful neighbor Dietrich von Mörs, Archbishop of Cologne, strengthened by his Burgundian connections." [The Ancestry of Charles II, King of England (citation details below).]
