Basel Stadt Aargau
First posted on December 8th 2007, last revised on December 12th 2013







In 1833 the Canton of Basel split into Basel Stadt and Basel Land. For too long the city of Basel had denied the residents of the countryside proper representation. Part of the population of Laufenthal, in 1815 annexed (until 1798 part of the Princebishopric of Basel, was Catholic, in a canton dominated by the reformed burghers of the city of Basel.
Both Basel Stadt and Basel Land formed part of the Swiss Confederation.
