Elector Palatine of the Rhine from 1559, surnamed ‘the Pious’. Through his wife he became well-disposed towards the Reformation, though she was more inclined to Lutheranism, he to Calvinism. At first he tried to compromise, but his publication of the Heidelberg Catechism in 1563 put the Palatinate into the Calvinist camp.
