House of Palatinate-Neumarkt

Palatinate-Neumarkt (German: Pfalz-Neumarkt) was a subdivision of the Wittelsbach dynasty of the German Palatinate. Its capital was Neumarkt in der Oberpfalz.

First creation

This line divided after the death of Rupert of Germany in the year 1410 into four lines: Palatinate-Neumarkt, Palatinate-Simmern, Palatinate-Mosbach, and the electoral line with the capital in Heidelberg.

Palatinate-Neumarkt prospered under Rupert's son John (1383–1443). From his marriage with Catherine of Pomerania-Stolp, Christopher of Bavaria (1416–1448) was born, who governed the Kalmar union (Denmark, Sweden, and Norway).

With Christopher's death, Palatinate-Neumarkt line expired, and its possessions fell to the line Palatinate-Mosbach, which became Palatinate-Mosbach-Neumarkt.

Second creation

Neumarkt Castle.

In 1524, a new apanage named Palatinate-Neumarkt was created for Wolfgang. When he died in 1558, it fell back to the Electoral Palatinate.

Name Reign
John 1410–1443
Christopher 1443–1448
   
Wolfgang 1524–1558
