The details

Sophie of Solms-Laubach (15 May 1594 – 16 May 1651), was a Countess of Solms-Laubach by birth and Margravine of Brandenburg-Ansbach by marriage.
Sophie's parents were Count John George I of Solms-Laubach (1547–1600) and Margarethe of Schönburg-Glauchau (1554–1606). She married Margrave Joachim Ernst of Brandenburg-Ansbach in 1612.
After her husband's death in 1625, she took over the reign of the Margraviate of Brandenburg-Ansbach, as guardian and regent for her minor son Frederick. Frederick died in 1634 in the Battle of Nördlingen, shortly after he came of age. Sophie then continued reigning as regent for her son Albert, until he came of age in 1639. She was supported during her reign by Frederick of Solms-Rödelheim.

  • Sophie (1614–1646)
