The details
Biography

Johann II (21 March 1492 – 18 May 1557) was the Count Palatine of Simmern from 1509 until 1557.

Johann II was born in Simmern in 1492 as the eldest surviving son of Johann I, Count Palatine of Simmern. In 1508 he married Beatrix of Baden, daughter of Margrave Christoph I. He succeeded his father in 1509. Johann II allowed printing to be established in Simmern and was a patron of sculpture. He introduced the Reformation into Simmern which led to increased tensions with his neighbours, the Archbishoprics of Trier and Mainz.
