  • Notes 
    • Count of Oldenburg. Called by The Ancestry of Charles II (citation details below) "Christian IV (V)". Called by Leo van de Pas (citation details below) Christian III.

      "[I]n 1272 gave an estate to the church for violating asylum, suppressed various rebellious nobles and sought to protect his farmers against their oppressions. […] He was described in the chronicle of Rastede Cloister as a friendly lord who liked wine, gladly had guests at his court, sang psalms daily, was devoted to priests, and especially favored Hude and Rastede cloisters. […] He reportedly followed knightly raiders into the Bremen cathedral and personally dragged them out." [The Ancestry of Charles II, King of England (citation details below)]

      His first wife was Hedwig of Oldenburg-Wildeshausen, daughter of Heinrich IV, Count of Oldenburg in Wildeshausen, but The Ancestry of Charles II establishes that she was not the mother of Johann II.
