The Diocese of Speyer is first documented for 614. From the 7th to the 11th centuries the Bishops of Speyer acquired territory, the later Stift Speyer (or Princebishopric Speyer). In 1294 the city of Speyer was granted the status of Free Imperial City, it was thus separated from the Stift. Since 1371 the bishops resided in Udenheim on the right bank of the Rhine (the later fortress city of Philippsburg); in 1723 they moved to Bruchsal.
The Stift Speyer was part of the Holy Roman Empire, and since 1512 of the Upper Rhenish Circle.
In 1795 the Stift territory on the left bank of the Rhine was annexed by France; the Stift territory on the right bank of the Rhine in 1803 (Secularisation) was annexed by Baden.
