The city of Mühausen was part of the Sundgau, a Habsburg dominion in the southern Alsace, within the Holy Roman Empire. In 1275, the city acquired the status of a free imperial city. From 1354 to 1515 M¨lhausen was part of the Alsatian Decapolis.
In 1515 Mülhausen became an ally of the Swiss Confederation. The Protestant Reformation was introduced in 1529, Catholics and Jews chased from the city. In 1648 France acquired the Habsburg possessions in the Alsace; from 1648 to 1798 Mülhausen thus was surrounded by French territory. In 1798 Mulhouse was annexed by France.
From 1871 to 1919, as part of Alsace-Lorraine, and again from 1940 to 1944, Mulhouse, under the name of Mülhausen, was part of Germany, from 1919 to 1940 and since 1944/1945 again part of France.

In sources prior to 1798, the spelling varieties Mülhausen, Müllhausen, Mühlhausen appear. In French language sources if the early 19th century, the dominantly used spelling is Mulhausen; only gradually was it replaced by Mulhouse. This page focusses on the period prior to 1798.
