Martin von Eyb (1543–1594) was the Prince-Bishop of Bamberg from 1580 to 1583.


Martin von Eyb was born in Eybburg, which is now a part of Ansbach, in 1543.[1]

He was elected Prince-Bishop of Bamberg on 11 October 1580, with Pope Gregory XIII confirming his appointment on 15 March 1581.[1]

His health deteriorated rapidly, and he resigned on 26 August 1583 without ever having been consecrated as a bishop.[1] He died on 27 August 1584.[1]
