German royalty, the eldest son of Christian I of Saxony and Sophie of Brandenburg. Christian succeeded his father as Elector of Saxony in 1591 at the age of eight. Because of his youth, his kinsman, Duke Friedrich Wilhelm I of Saxe-Weimar, assumed the regency of the Electorate until 1601, when Christian was declared an adult and began to govern. In the course of the event that eventually led to the Thirty Years' War, his refusal to join the Union of Auhausen deepened the division between the Protestant German states. In Dresden, on 12 September 1602, Christian married Hedwig (Hedevig), daughter of the King Frederik II of Denmark. This marriage was childless. He died in Dresden on 23 June 1611. Upon his death his brother Johann Georg succeeded him as Elector.
