One thing is for certain: the former nun, who came from a noble family, did not play a minor role in Luther's household in Wittenberg. Today we would say: the wife of the Reformer wears the breeches. This is why Martin Luther called her his "Herr Katie". She continues to be an inspiration as a clever and energetic woman, who did not shy away from arguments. Every year, the city of Torgau appoints a woman as "Katharina ambassador" for her outstanding commitment.
