About Georg III of Erbach-Breuberg, Count

George was the eldest son of Count Eberhard XII (19 January 1511 – 12 July 1564) and his wife Margaret of Dhaun (25 September 1521 – 5 April 1576). He was heir of Reichenberg Castle, which he converted into a Renaissance style fortress.

Around 1560, the Elector Palatine enfeoffed George III, jointly with his father and his uncle Valentin II (16 July 1517 – 27 August 1563) with the district of Wildenstein.

When his uncle George II (18 January 1506 – 27 August 1569) died, George inherited his territory and thereby all the possessions of the House of Erbach were reunited in one hand.

Between 1588 and 1590 he expanded Fürstenau Castle.
