"John Casimir, Prince of Anhalt-Dessau (17 December 1596 – 15 September 1660), was a German prince of the House of Ascania. He was ruler of the principality of Anhalt-Dessau from 1618 to 1660.

During his reign the tasks of government were carried out by a committee of court officials, because he devoted much of his time to hunting." - (en.wikipedia.org 17.11.2019)
