German politician who served as Prime Minister of the Kingdom of Württemberg from 1906 to 1918. He was a member of the prominent Weizsäcker family.
He was the son of the theologian Karl Heinrich Weizsäcker and his wife, the former Auguste Sophie Christiane Dahm. While serving as a politician at the court of the Kingdom of Württemberg, his family was raised to nobility as von Weizsäcker.
Weizsäcker studied at the University of Tübingen. While serving in the administration of King Wilhelm II of Württemberg, he was raised to personal nobility on 24 February 1897.
From 1900, he served as Minister of Culture — until 4 December 1906 when he was made Prime Minister. He served in this office until 6 November 1918, shortly before the monarchy was abolished.
In 1916, he and his family were raised to the hereditary noble title of Baron (Freiherr).
Weizsäcker was the father of Ernst von Weizsäcker and thus grandfather of the physicist Carl Friedrich von Weizsäcker and of Richard von Weizsäcker, who was President of Germany from 1984 to 1894. He died in Stuttgart on 2 February 1926 at age 75.
