The Grand Duchy of Baden



For most of the early modern period, the Baden lands were divided into two parts, one ruled by the Catholic Margraves of Baden-Baden, and the other by the Protestant Margraves of Baden-Durlach.

In 1771, the main Baden-Baden line became extinct, and all of the Baden lands came under the rule of Baden-Durlach. During the Napoleonic era, in the imperial reorganisation of 1803, Baden gained a great deal of additional territory, and its rulers were made one of the few prince-electors of the Holy Roman Empire.

However, this pre-eminent dignity lasted only for three years, until the end of the Empire in August 1806, eight months after the crushing Battle of Austerlitz. Consequently, in that year, the Margraves took on the title of Grand Duke of Baden, and gained additional territory.

In 1815 it joined the German Confederation. During the Revolutions of 1848 in the German states, Baden was a center of revolutionist activities.

In 1849 it was the only German state that became a republic for a short while, under the leadership of Lorenzo Brentano. Finally the revolution in Baden was suppressed mainly by Prussian troops, the Grand Duchy of Baden remained a sovereign country until it joined the German Empire in 1871.

After the revolution of 1918 Baden became part of the Weimar Republic as the Republic of Baden.

And monarchy was abolished soon after...then END!

Princess Margarita of Baden

(Margarete Alice Thyra Viktoria Marie Louise Scholastica) (14 July 1932 – 15 January 2013) was the daughter of Berthold, Margrave of Baden and Princess Theodora of Greece and Denmark.

Princess Margarita's paternal grandparents were Prince Maximilian of Baden and Princess Marie Luise of Hanover, a great great granddaughter of George III. Her maternal grandparents were Prince Andrew of Greece and Princess Alice of Battenberg. She was therefore a niece of Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh, husband and consort of Elizabeth II. She was a first cousin to The Prince of Wales and his siblings.
 
She was in the Line of succession to the British throne. Following the death of Princess Katherine of Greece and Denmark in 2007, Princess Margarita became the most senior female in the line of descent from Queen Victoria, of whom she was a great-great-great-granddaughter.


On June 5, 1957, Princess Margarita married Prince Tomislav of Yugoslavia, younger brother of King Peter II of Yugoslavia. The couple had two children and were divorced in 1981.

Thank you so much!! Star

My mother is from Baden-Baden, so this topic is very close to my heart!!! 

Isn't there a Dorothea in there somewhere?  That is my mom's middle name and I thought it came from a member of the local noble/royal (Baden) house?

Philip is doing well to attend his niece's funeral.
Prince Philip's family were all quite striking in looks.
Margarita of Baden, was a pretty bride.
 
Margarita's ex-husband's relationship with Yugoslavia was passionate; his was a rather dramatic story.

What does the title ``Margrave'' mean? 

Margrave was the medieval title for the hereditary nobleman with military responsibility for one of the border provinces of a kingdom. The greater exposure of a border province to military invasion mandated that the margrave be provided with military forces and autonomy of action (political, strategic, tactical) greater than was accorded other lords of the realm, thus the title came to indicate a superior noble rank. As a military governor, the margrave often extended over a territory greater than the province proper, because of border expansion subsequent to royal wars.

As territorial borders stabilised with the political progress achieved by the late middle ages (AD 1300–1500) and the early modern era (AD 1500), the margraves' politico-military role and superior authority gradually diminished, leaving them as substantially independent rulers of states under the nominal jurisdiction of the Holy Roman Emperor, like other Dukes, Landgraves, Counts palatine and Fürsten (princes).

A few nobles in southern Austria and northern Italy, whose suzerain was the Emperor, received from him the title of margrave, sometimes translated in Italian as Marquis (Marchese), those who reigned as virtual sovereigns (Marquis of Mantua, Marquis of Montferrat, Marquis of Saluzzo) exercised authority closer to the dynastic jurisdiction associated with the margrave, while nobles of less jurisdiction (e.g., Pallavicini) retained use of the margravial title but held the non-sovereign status of a marquis.
