In 1816 the Prussian Province Sachsen (Saxony) was created by merging the territories of Altmark, Duchy of Magdeburg, the Principality of Halberstadt, County Hohenstein, Stift Quedlinburg, parts of the Eichsfeld with Erfurt, the former immediate city of Nordhausen (until 1807 Prussian, 1807-1815 Napoleonic Kingdom of Westphalia), and large stretches of the Kingdom of Saxony ceded to Prussia in 1815.
