• Yes. "All living descendants of Luther trace their lineage through his youngest daughter, Margarethe." "Margarethe married into a noble and wealthy Prussian family. Her untimely death came in 1570 at the age of 36. Her descendants, and therefore Martin Luther’s offspring, have continued to the present time. How many? As of September 2004 there were 351 members in the German Association of Lutherides. This is a society whose members are all descendants of Martin Luther's family, reaching back to his grandfather's generation. There are undoubtedly many more descendants who don’t realize their connection to the 16th century Reformer." "However, her descendants have continued to the present, and include President Paul von Hindenburg, the Counts zu Eulenburg, and Princes zu Eulenburg und Hertefeld."
