[1] Encke had no PhD, but nevertheless Gauß is seen as his advisor in the Mathematics Genealogy Project, "to show a connection in our intellectual heritage". One of Encke's students was Leopold Kronecker, who obtained his Dr. phil. in Berlin in 1845.

[2] Jakob Thomasius was one of the advisors of Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz, who obtained his Dr. phil. in Leipzig in 1666.
