Elector and Archbishop of Mainz and Imperial Arch-Chancellor of the Holy Roman Empire of the German Nation.

As archbishop, he was primarily concerned with spiritual matters such as the new edition of liturgical books and the visitation system. The Elector, who was almost seventy when he was elected, had a hard time on the political stage.
