Hessen-Darmstadt Rheinprovinz
First posted on November 23rd 2007, last revised on February 6th 2010







Following the Seven Weeks War 1866, Prussia annexed Nassau, Hessen-Kassel, Hessen-Homburg, Frankfurt, and the Hessisches Hinterland (hitherto part of Hessen-Darmstadt) and formed these territories into the new province of Hessen-Nassau.
In 1871 Prussia joined the German Empire (1871-1945); within the Reich and within Prussia, Hessen-Nassau remained an administrative entity. In 1929 Waldeck was annexed into Prussia and into Hessen-Kassel.
In 1944, Hessen-Nassau was dissolved into the provinces Kurhessen and Nassau. In 1946, most of the former territory of Hessen-Nassau, was merged with Hessen Darmstadt to form the new state of Hessen, which in 1949 joined the Federal Republic of Germany.
