Archbishop Ruprecht von der Pfalz

Period of office 1463-1478

Archbishop Ruprecht was the son of the Elector Ludwig III of the Palatine. In 1463 he concluded the "Confederation of Patrimonial Lands" with the Estates, which was the legal foundation of the Archdiocese up to the time of its secularization. But he soon came into conflict with the Estates by not adhering to the agreement. After the failed siege of the city of Neuss, he was deposed by the Emperor in 1475, and in 1478 he was forced to resign.
