He was the son of John III and Matilda of Pomerania (born: abt. 1304, died: 1331). He allegedly received his nickname from the shape and the look in his eyes.

He initially ruled the dominion Werle-Goldberg jointly with his father John III and from 1350 alone. He still signed a peace treaty on 14 March 1354, but is no longer mentioned after 13 November of that year.

He was married to Agnes (died after 1361). Presumably, she was a daughter of daughter of Ulrich II of Lindow-Ruppin. After Nicholas' death, she married John I of Mecklenburg-Stargard.


Nicholas had at least three children:
