  • Note:
    Magnus (around 1328 - 1373, Leveste), called Magnus with the Necklace (Latin Magnus Torquatus) or Magnus II, was duke of Brunswick-Lüneburg.

    Magnus was the son of Magnus the Pious, Duke of Brunswick-Lüneburg, who ruled over the Brunswick subdivision of the duchy. After the death of his brother Louis in 1367, Magnus became the designated heir of both parts of the duchy, Brunswick and Lüneburg. When both his father and William II, Duke of Brunswick-Lüneburg, who ruled over Lüneburg, died in 1369, Magnus gained both parts of the duchy. But already in 1370, he lost Lüneburg to the Ascanian dukes of Saxony (Albert and Wenceslaus), who had been given the principality by Charles IV, Holy Roman Emperor, who had also banned Magnus. Several cities, including Lüneburg, Uelzen, and Hanover switched allegiance to the Ascanians; Magnus managed to keep the City of Brunswick among his allies only with difficulties. The Lüneburg Succession War continued for several years after Magnus died in battle near Leveste in 1373.
    Magnus married Catherine, daughter of Valdemar, Prince of Anhalt, who married Magnus' enemy Albert, Duke of Saxony, after his death.
