Palatinate-Sulzbach was the name of two separate states of the Holy Roman Empire based in the Duchy of Sulzbach in modern Bavaria, Germany.

Palatinate-Sulzbach (1569 - 1604)Edit

Palatinate-Sulzbach was partitioned from Palatinate-Zweibrücken in 1569 for his son Otto Henry. Otto Henry died in 1604 without any heirs so Palatinate-Sulzbach passed to Palatinate-Neuburg.

Palatinate-Sulzbach (1614 - 1742)Edit

In 1614 Palatinate-Sulzbach was partitioned from Palatinate-Neuburg following the death of Count Palatine Philip Louis for his son Augustus. His successor Christian Augustus was a tolerant ruler who allowed his subjects to choose their religious denomination, introduced the simultaneum, allowed Jews to live in Sulzbach in 1666, and established an important printing industry. It became clear during the reigns of his successors that Palatinate-Sulzbach would inherit the Electoral Palatinate following the death of Charles III Philip, but this would only occur in 1742 for Charles Theodore.
