    From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. The text of Wikipedia entries on the Kingdom of Wurttemberg and the province of Baden have been extracted, edited and additional comments have been added.

    The Kingdom of Württemberg (German: Königreich Württemberg) was a state in Germany that existed from 1805 to 1918, located in the area that is now Baden-Württemberg. The kingdom was a continuation of the Duchy of Württemberg, which existed from 1495 to 1805.[1] Prior to 1495, Württemberg was a County in the former Duchy of Swabia, which had dissolved after the death of Duke Conradin in 1268.

    The borders of the Kingdom of Württemberg, as defined in 1813, lay between 47°34' and 49°35' north and 8°15' and 10°30' east. The greatest distance north to south comprised 225 km and the greatest east to west was 160 km. The border had a total length of 1800 km and the total area of the state was 19,508 km².

    The kingdom had borders with Bavaria on the east and south, with Baden in the north and west. In the southwest it held a short border with the Prussian province of Hohenzollern and Lake Constance.

    The army of the German state of Württemberg was until 1918 known in Germany as the Württembergische Armee.[1]

    Its troops were maintained by Württemberg for its national defence and as a unit of the Swabian Circle (district), the Confederation of the Rhine, the German Confederation and finally of the Imperial German Army.

    Amalgamated within the overall Imperial German army in 1871, it was renamed the XIII (Royal Württemberg) Corps until 1918, mainly comprising the 26th and 27th infantry divisions and the 26th dragoon regiment.[2

    Baden was a historical German territory. It joined the German Empire in 1871 as a separate province. In 1914, the province of Baden and the Kingdom of Wurttemberg sent units separately to join the Imperial German Army. Together withWürttemberg and Hohenzollern, two other historical territories, it now forms the Federal State of Baden-Württemberg.[1]

    This thread combines images of Baden and Wurttemberg troops and equipment because the two are now one Federal State.
