Albert commissioned a work on the history of Prussia, mainly to counter in his view the biased Polish and catholic works. However, he was only able to produce a recent history of Prussia before he died. His son, Albrecht Friedrich of Prussia (1553 - 1618), however, continued the efforts, and instructed Lucas David to compile a history of Prussia. This was also supported by various social classes, which believed that the Polish histories belittled Prussian achievements. Hence Lucas David researched documents of Prussian history, and started to write his Prussian Chronicles ("Preußische Chronik") from around 1575. While Lucas David utilized large parts of the work of Simon Grunau, he also frequently corrected errors by Grunau. Albert Frederick Hohenzollern (1553-1618) was duke of Prussia from 1568 until his death. ... // Events June 26 - Christs Hospital in London gets a Royal Charter July 6 - Edward VI of England dies July 10 - Lady Jane Grey is proclaimed Queen of England - for the next nine days July 18 - Lord Mayor of London proclaims Queen Mary as the rightful Queen - Lady Jane Grey...

Before Lucas David was able to complete his chronicles, he died in April 1583 at the age of 80. The chronicle ends with the events preceding the Battle of Grunwald (Battle of Tannenberg]) 1410 (Other sources state that his works extend till 1475). His works were largely unknown to his contemporaries, and were re-discovered only around 1720, with another 100 years before its first publication in the years between 1812-1817 in eight volumes. Since then he has become well known past the borders of his homeland for these Prussian Chronicles. He is ranked as a 'modern' historian, as he based his studies on historic sources. 1583 was a common year starting on Saturday of the Gregorian calendar or a common year starting on Tuesday of the Julian calendar. ...
