Limestone epitaph of Urzula Krüger (?-1601).
Ursula Krüger was the widow of merchant Berend(t) Butte and the cognate of influential aldermann Andres Coye and Lukas Hübner, the counselor of the Courland’s Duke Gotthard.
Ursula Krüger married the Prussian humanist and Neo-Latin poet Daniel Hermann (1539–1601) in 1582.
Krüger was a remarkable woman: a mix of a learned woman who could compose Latin dedications and of a businesswoman who could financially and organizationally complete the editing and publishing.
