Born 600 years ago at Heidelberg Palace: Mechthild von der Pfalz

2019 marks the 600th anniversary of her birth. Her story: On March 7, 1419, Mechthild von der Pfalz was born in Heidelberg Palace, the daughter of Prince-Elector Ludwig III, later the wife of two important rulers. She was a highly cultured woman and the center of a "Musenhof", a court of muses. She was the driving force behind the founding of two of the state's academic institutions, continuing a family tradition, which began with the founding of Heidelberg University by Prince-Elector Ruprecht I in 1386. Her birthday falls the day before International Women's Day, which is celebrated on March 8 — one more reason why the State Palaces and Gardens of Baden-Württemberg is commemorating this famous resident of the Electoral Palatinate.
