Johann VIII of Franconia was born in 1580 as the son of Friedrich VII of Franconia and Pomerania. His father divided his lands between his sons: Johann received Franconia, while his brother Friedrich VIII got Pomerania.

He gave his country some stability after the chaotic reign of his father.

In 1640, he joined the Baltic League that was founded by king Erik XVII of Sweden at this year.

After his death, being childless, he was succeeded by his nephew Johann IX, who was already duke of Pomerania at this time.
