Count Zinzendorf

1700 - 1760

Nicholas Louis, Count and Lord of Zinzendorf and Pottendorf (to give him his full title), was born at Dresden on 26 May 1700. His father, Count George Louis, was one of the chief ministers in the court of Saxony. Sadly, he died of tuberculosis only six weeks after Nicholas’ birth, so Nicholas never knew his father.
