Aurora von Königsmarck was the daughter of an aristocratic German family with estates in Sweden. There Aurora participated in royal court theatricals and belonged to intellectual circles. After her mother died, Aurora left Sweden and went to Hamburg and Dresden, where she was noted for her beauty and talents. In 1694, she became the official mistress of Augustus II, Elector of Saxony and King of Poland, with whom she had a son, Maurice, Count of Saxony; he later became the famous soldier and marshal Maurice de Saxe of France. In 1702, she went on a diplomatic mission for the Elector to King Charles XII of Sweden. She died at age 65 at Quedlinburg Abbey, where she had served as provost.
