A question about the "ancient" nobility:) The German version of Wikipedia article about Sophia Charlotte von Platen-Hallermund, supposed daughter of Hanover elector Ernst-August, says she was born 10 APR 1675. I can't find any information about the source of this exact date. And unfortunately I am unable to verify this fact on publications, which are listed in the sources section.In all works of her life there is only the year of her birth.
Does anyone know the source of this date?
Thank you in advanced.
The Complete Peerage has her birth year as circa 1673. Her 'parents'
apparently married in September 1673 and her older brother (Ernst
August!) was born 3rd August 1674. My guess is that the 1673 date is
the correct one. Though German Wikipedia
has 10th April, presumably using one of these sources (not specified)
1. Paul Gerhard Zeidler: Elisabeth von Platen, eine deutsche
Pompadour. Roman. Richard Bong & Co, Berlin 1921.
2. Ragnhild Marie Hatton: Georg der Erste. Ein deutscher Kurfürst auf
Englands Thron. Societäts Verlag, Frankfurt a.M. 1985, ISBN
3. Dieter Lohmeier: Kielmansegg, Johann Adolph von, in: Biographisches
Lexikon für Schleswig-Holstein und Lübeck, Band 13, S. 262265
Google Book Search shows that source 2 has 1675 as the birth year, I
didn;t search the text for a fuller date.
Hope this helps,
