Theodor Mügge (8 November 1802--18 February 1861) was a German author.
Theodor Mügge was born and educated in Berlin. His liberal sentiments, expressed in various newspapers and in such pamphlets as Die Censurverhältnisse in Preussen (1845), led in several instances to his arrest and prosecution. During the 20 years preceding his death in 1861, he wrote numerous sketches, tales, novels, and romances, which appeared in a complete edition in 1862-67 (33 vols.) Several, including Toussaint (1840) and Afraja (1854), have been translated into English. Notable are his Norwegian romances and sketches of travel: Leben and Lieben in Norwegen (“Life and love in Norway,” 1858); Skizzen aus dem Norden (“Sketches from the North,” 1844); and Nordisches Bilderbuch (“Nordic picture album,” 1858; 3d ed. 1862).
