The details

Nicholas IV, Lord of Werle[-Goldberg], nicknamed Poogenoge ("Pig's eyes") (born: before 1331; died: between 14 March and 13 November 1354) was from 1350 to 1354 to Lord of Werle-Goldberg.


He was the son of John III and Matilda of Pomerania (born: before 1319, died: 1331). He allegedly received his nickname from the shape and the look in his eyes.

He initially ruled the dominion Werle-Goldberg jointly with his father John III and from 1350 alone. He still signed a peace treaty on 14 March 1354, but is no longer mentioned after 13 November of that year.

He was married to Agnes (died after 1361). Presumably, she was a daughter of daughter of Ulrich II of Lindow-Ruppin. After Nicholas' death, she married John I of Mecklenburg-Stargard.


Nicholas had at least three children:

  • John IV succeeded him as Lord of Werle-Goldberg
  • Matilda (died: before 17 December 1402) married Lorenz of Werle
  • Agnes married John VI of Werle-Waren
