Brandenburg

'''Brandenburg''' ( ) is one of the sixteen federated states (states of Germany) of Germany. The capital is Potsdam.

It lies in the east of the country and is one of the federal states that was re-created in 1990 upon the reunification (German reunification) of the former West Germany and East Germany. Brandenburg surrounds but does not include the national capital and city-state Berlin.

Originating in the medieval Northern March, the Margraviate of Brandenburg grew (Brandenburg-Prussia) to become the core of the Kingdom of Prussia, which would later become the Free State of Prussia. The eastern third (East Brandenburg) of historic Brandenburg (''Ostbrandenburg Neumark'') was ceded to Poland in 1945 (Oder-Neisse border).
