    Mau­rice was born in Kas­sel as the son of William IV, Land­grave of Hesse-Kas­sel, and of his wife Sabine of Würt­tem­berg.

Mau­rice's con­ver­sion was con­tro­ver­sial since the Peace of Augs­burg had only set­tled re­li­gious mat­ters be­tweens Roman Catholics and Luther­ans and had not con­sid­ered Calvin­ists.

Such a change of faith was con­trary to the in­her­i­tance rules, and re­sulted in an on­go­ing con­flict with the Hesse-Darm­stadt branch. It also brought him into con­flict with the Holy Roman Em­peror, Matthias. Eng­lish strolling play­ers ('Die En­glis­che Co­moe­di­anten') were fre­quent vis­i­tors to, and per­form­ers in, towns...
