In the fall of 1635, sixteen-year-old Moritz (28 March 1619 – September, 1635) joined his parents, John George and Magdalene Sibylle in fleeing Saxony after it was clear that the electorate would fall to the United States of Europe. While fleeing through the Vogtland, all three were killed by explosives planted by Georg Kresse.
