Paul von Rohden

Paul von Rohden (12 December 1862, Barmen – 28 February 1939, Pieterlen) was a German-Swiss schoolteacher and historian known for his research in the field of prosopography.[1] He was the son of theologian Ludwig von Rohden (1815–1889) and the brother of archaeologist Hermann von Rohden (1852–1916) and theologian Gustav von Rohden (1855–1942).

He studied history in Leipzig and Berlin, where he was influenced by Theodor Mommsen. From 1889 onward, he taught classes at the gymnasium in Steglitz, afterwards relocating to Davos in Switzerland, where in 1896 he worked briefly as a tutor. Beginning in 1899 he taught classes in ancient languages and other subjects at the Fridericianum Davos. Since the winter of 1913/14 he also gave lectures in Davos Platz.[2]
