He is considered an important representative of German baroque poetry . He was a popular casual poet in the baroque aristocratic and court society of the German south-west. He was ennobled in 1641.


After attending school in his home town of Dinkelsbühl, Rompler enrolled in Altdorf near Nuremberg in 1626 , acquired a master's degree in law in Tübingen two years later , and enrolled again in Strasbourg in 1628 . Together with other interested friends, including Johannes Freinsheim , Johann Michael Moscherosch and Johann Matthias Schneuber , he founded the Aufrichtige Tannengesellschaft here in 1633 to keep the German language clean. Even Philip of Zesen German minded cooperative took him in 1645 to. Around 1647 he moved to the vicinity of the Württemberg court in Mömpelgard .
