Hessen-Kassel Germany (the Reich)
First posted on November 14th 2007, last revised on January 2nd 2011







County, since 1712 Principality, in the Holy Roman Empire. Located between Princebishopric of Paderborn, Landgraviate of Hessen-Kassel, Landgraviate Hessen-Darmstadt, Duchy of Westphalia (to Princearchbishopric of Cologne). From 1512 to 1806 part of the Upper Rhenish Circle. In 1625 the territory of Pyrmont was acquired by the way of inheritance. Waldeck-Pyrmont survived the territorial changes of the Napoleonic period unharmed. During the Seven Weeks War it sided with Prussia, joined the North German Confederation in 1867, unified Germany in 1871. In 1919 the prince abdicated, Waldeck-Pyrmont declared a Free State. In 1922, following a plebiscite, the Pyrmont territory was annexed into the Prussian province of Hannover; in 1929 Waldeck unified with Prussia, annexed into the province of Hessen-Nassau.
