Biography

Leopold Louis (German: Leopold Ludwig) (1 February 1625 – 29 September 1694) was the Duke of Veldenz from 1634 until 1694.

Life

Leopold Louis was born in Lauterecken in 1625 as the youngest son of George Gustavus, Count Palatine of Veldenz, from his second marriage to Maria Elizabeth of Palatinate-Zweibrücken (7 November 1581 – 18 August 1637), daughter of Duke John I.

After his father's death in 1634 he succeeded him as his elder brothers had already died. During the Thirty Years' War his lands were occupied, and again during the Nine Years' War by Swedish, Spanish and later French soldiers. Leopold Louis died in Strasbourg in 1694 and was buried in Lützelstein (now called La Petite-Pierre, in France). As he had no surviving sons, Veldenz was inherited by the Palatinate-Kleeburg line, the head of which was Charles XI, king of Sweden.
