Werle (or Wenden) was a fiefdom, or Herrschaft (territory) in German, in the Holy Roman Empire that was founded in 1235. It was created in the partition of territories in Mecklenburg that followed the death of Henry Borwin II of Mecklenburg (died 1226).
He was the son of Nicholas IV and Agnes of Lindow-Ruppin. As he was still a minor when he inherited Werle, his mother put him under the guardianship of Duke Albert II of Mecklenburg. However, a dispute arose between Albert II and John's mother, and she then chose Lord Nicholas III of Werle -Güstrow as his guardian.
