Brandenburg-Prussia

Brandenburg was one of the most important principalities in the Holy Roman Empire and its margraves held the dignity of elector from 1356, which meant that they had the right to participate in the elections of the German kings. The Hohenzollern dynasty who ruled Brandenburg after 1415 inherited the duchy of Prussia 1618. That land was elevated to the rank of kingdom and Prussia replaced Brandenburg as the name of the Hohenzollern Dynasty’s domains. Maps and texts over Prussia's history are available on this page.
