Where was the princess from?
Sabina was of noble European birth. Her mother was the daughter of an emperor from the House of Habsburg, her father a Bavarian duke from the Wittelsbach family. In a political calculation, a six-year-old Sabina was promised to the then eleven-year-old Ulrich von Württemberg. Sabina's father, Albrecht IV and her maternal uncle, Maximilian I, Emperor of the Holy Roman Empire as of 1508, were behind the arrangement. Both wanted to secure political influence in Württemberg.
