    Notes 
    • I am including Anna Margarethe Luther as Claes' wife and Emmerich's mother with the below caveat:

      "...historical documents list Georg von Kunheim (Jr.) as [Margarethe's] only husband. Margarethe and Georg were engaged in 1554 and married on 5 Aug 1555, when she was about 20/21 years-old. If she were really Emmerich's mother, she would have been barely 16--if that old--at the time of his birth.

      In fact (if I understand anything of the German narratives I have come across), the year 1552/1553 was about the time Margarethe and Georg first became acquainted. She (being about 18 years-old) was under the guardianship of Philipp Melanchthon after the death of her mother, which occurred 20 Dec 1552. He was a young law student at University of Wittenberg, who began his studies in 1550. (Melanchthon also knew the von Kunheim's.)

      It seems rather unlikely that a relationship would have blossomed between Georg and Maragarethe, had she been a young mother--widowed or otherwise. Furthermore, had young Margarethe been married, there should have been no need for a guardian. One may argue that Claes died prior to 1552; however, there is still a lack of historical evidence supporting this theory.

      Therefore, since the historical evidence does not support a marriage prior to Margarethe's relationship with von Kunheim, it is highly unlikely that she was ever married to Claus Wagner."
