Nicolaus Marschalk: Genealogy of the Mecklenburg princely house (Mecklenburgische Fürstengenealogie)

After his studies in Louvain, Heidelberg, Erfurt and Wittenberg, Nicolaus Marschalk initially worked as a town clerk in Rostock. At the Mecklenburg court he was a ducal councillor in Schwerin in diplomatic service. At the same time he taught at the University of Rostock since 1510. In his genealogy he tried to connect the origin of the Mecklenburg princely house with Alexander the Great via a legendary Obodite army leader from the 4th century BC. He died in Rostock in 1525.
