This detailed sheet depicts the genealogy of the Margraves and Electors of Brandenburg in a traditional "family tree" style. Also included are the rulers of the Duchy of Prussia, which was ruled in personal union with Brandenburg beginning in 1618. At left are columns of text listing each of the rulers from 785 to 1712 (and noted at top as a "short" explanation). A small stone at bottom right identifies the abbreviations used. A very striking chart.
Full original color with a few tiny holes at top and a chip in top blank margin that has been professionally repaired. Trimmed close to neatline at bottom, apparently as issued, with the margin extended to accommodate framing.
