Sigismund I. von Anhalt-Dessau, Fürst von Anhalt-Dessau, was born circa 1366 to Johann I. von Anhalt-Zerbst (c1345-c1380) and Elisabeth von Henneberg-Schleusingen (1351-1397) and died circa 1405 in Coswig, Germany of unspecified causes.

Notable ancestors include Charlemagne (747-814), Rurik (c832-879), Hugh Capet (c940-996), Alfred the Great (849-899), Henry II of England (1133-1189), William I of England (1027-1087).

In 1382, after the death of his father, Sigismund inherited the principality of Anhalt-Zerbst jointly with his brothers Albrecht IV. and Waldemar III.. After the death of Waldemar in 1391, Sigismund and Albrecht became the sole co-rulers.

Five years later, in 1396, both brothers decided to settle upon a formal division of the principality of Anhalt-Zerbst. Sigismund assumed the title "Lord of Zerbst," but established the town of Dessau as his main residence and capital of his newly-created principality of Anhalt-Dessau.
