KARL PETER WILHELM MAURENBRECHER (1838-1892), German historian, was born at Bonn on the 21st of December, 1838, and studied in Berlin and Munich under Ranke and Von Sybel, being especially influenced by the latter historian. After doing some research work at Simancas in Spain, he became professor of history at the university of Dorpat in 1867; and was then in turn professor at Konigsberg, Bonn and Leipzig. He died at Leipzig on the 6th of November, 1892. Many of Maurenbrecher's works are concerned with the Reformation, among them being England im Ref ormationszeitalter (Dusseldorf, 1866) ; Karl V. and die deutschen Protestanten (Dusseldorf, 1865) ; Studien and Skizzen zur Geschichte der Reformationszeit (Leipzig, 1874) ; and the incomplete Geschichte der Katholischen Reformation (Nordlingen, 188o). He also wrote Don Karlos (Berlin, 1876); Grundung des deutschen Reiches 1859—1871 (Leipzig, 1892, and again 1902); and Geschichte der deutschen Konigswahlen (Leipzig, 1889). See G. Wolf, Wilhelm Maurenbrecher (Berlin, 1893).
