importance the congress was more unanimous. Thus, on the urgent appeal of the king of Denmark, Charles XIV of Sweden received a peremptory summons to carry out the terms of the Treaty of Kiel; the petition of the Prince-elector of Hesse to be recognized as king was unanimously rejected; and measures were taken to redress the grievances of the German mediatized princes (mediatized houses). The more important outstanding questions in Germany, e.g. the Baden (Baden Germany) succession (Order of succession), were after consideration reserved for a further conference to be called at Frankfurt Main. In 1981 she made her first trip to West Germany, where she, together with Mr. Reddy and her close companion Adilakshmi, settled down a year later. She married a German in 1982. Mr. Reddy died in 1985 and was buried in the local cemetery in Dornburg-Thalheim, Hesse. Adilakshmi, 'The Mother', page 7 For some years now, she has been giving Darshan (literally ''seeing'', primarily in a spiritual context) at Schloss Schaumburg in Balduinstein, a small town in Germany. Previously, in the early 1990s, she gave Darshan in a house in the town of Thalheim, some 5 km northwest of Hadamar in Germany. She also visits the United States on a regular basis (see links below). In 1771, he was appointed a Privy Counsellor (Privy Council of Great Britain) and briefly served as Lord Privy Seal before becoming Secretary of State for the Northern Department under Lord North (Frederick North, 2nd Earl of Guilford) from 1771 to 1779. In this capacity he secured the use of Hessian (Hesse) and Hanoverian mercenaries to help suppress the American Revolution. In the same capacity he helped to secure the survival of Sweden as an independent nation by counteracting Russia (Imperial Russia)'s plan to undo the Revolution (Gustav III of Sweden#Revolution) of Gustavus III (Gustav III of Sweden) in 1772. He was made a Knight of the Garter in 1778. thumb 200px City Hall (File:Fritzlar-Rathaus.jpg) '''Fritzlar''' is a small German (Germany) town (pop. 15,000) in the Schwalm-Eder (Schwalm-Eder-Kreis) district in northern Hesse, Wikipedia:Hesse Dmoz:Regional Europe Germany States Hesse Commons:Hessen

'''Bensheim''' is a town in the Bergstraße district (Kreis Bergstraße) in southern Hesse, Germany. Bensheim lies on the Bergstraße (Bergstraße Route) and at the edge of the Odenwald mountains while at the same time having an open view over the Rhine plain. With almost 40,000 inhabitants, it is the district’s biggest town. '''Seeheim-Jugenheim''' is a municipality in the Darmstadt-Dieburg district in Hesse, Germany. It has a population of approximately 17,000. In 1983, Forsythe choreographed ''Gänge,'' a controversial work subtitled "A piece about ballet," for the Frankfurt State Theater. In spite of the scandalous reception to this work, the Frankfurt theater offered him the position of Ballet Director in 1984. Forsythe directed the Frankfurt Ballet (Ballett Frankfurt) from 1984 until 2004, choreographing such seminal pieces such as ''Artifact'' (1984), ''Die Befragung des Robert Scott'' (1986) ''Impressing the Czar'' (Impressing the czar) (1988), ''Limb’s Theorem'' (1990), ''The Loss of Small Detail'' (1991), ''ALIE N ''A(C)TION'' '' (1992), ''Eidos : Telos'' (1995), ''Endless House'' (1999), ''Kammer Kammer'' (2000), and ''Decreation'' (2003). After the closure of the Frankfurt Ballet in 2004, Forsythe established The Forsythe Company with the support of the states of Saxony and Hesse, the cities of Dresden and Frankfurt am Main, and private sponsors in a public-private co-operative venture. The Forsythe Company is based at the Bockenheimer Depot in Frankfurt am Main and the Festspielhaus Hellerau in Dresden and also maintains an extensive international touring schedule. Important works created for The Forsythe Company include ''Three Atmospheric Studies'' (2005), ''Human Writes'' (2005), ''Heterotopia'' (2006), and ''Yes we can't'' (2008). In 1025, exactly one year after the death of her husband, St. Cunigunde retired to Kaufungen Abbey, in (Hesse), Germany, where she entered the monastery of Benedictine (Order of St. Benedict) nuns she had founded at Kaufungen. She died in 1040, and was buried at Bamberg Cathedral by her husband. She was canonised by Pope Innocent III on 29 March 1200. Konrad also set to work seeking out heresy in both Thuringia and Hesse, and quickly gained a reputation for being unreasonable and unjust. According to most accounts, Konrad accepted almost any accusation as true, and regarded suspects as guilty until proven innocent. Those accused of being heretics were quickly sought out by Konrad's mobs, and told to repent or else be burnt at the stake (execution by burning). Those accused of heresy were also encouraged to falsely denounce others, with the implication that their own lives might be spared if they did so. Konrad included commoners, nobles, and priests in his inquisition: Heinrich Minnike, Provost (Provost (religion)) of Goslar, was one of Konrad's first targets, and was burnt at the stake. In 1227, Pope Gregory IX commissioned Konrad to eliminate heresy throughout the whole of Germany, granting him permission to ignore standard church procedure for the investigation of heresy. According to many sources, news that Konrad was to pass through an area almost invariably caused widespread panic. '''Friedberg''' ('''Friedberg in der Wetterau''') is a town and the capital of the Wetteraukreis district, in Hesse, Germany. It is located 26 kilometers north of Frankfurt am Main. Variants of Low German were widely (and are still to a far lesser extent) spoken in most parts of Northern Germany, for instance in the states of Lower Saxony, North Rhine-Westphalia, Hamburg, Bremen, Schleswig-Holstein, Mecklenburg-Vorpommern, Saxony-Anhalt and Brandenburg. Small portions of northern Hesse and northern Thuringia are traditionally Low Saxon speaking too. Historically, Low German was also spoken in formerly German parts of Poland as well as in East Prussia and the Baltic States of Estonia and Latvia. The language was also formerly spoken in the outer areas of what is now the city state of Berlin but in the course of urbanisation and national centralisation in that city the language vanished. (The Berlin dialect itself is a northern outpost of High German and typologically a Missingsch variety, although rarely recognized as the latter). Political career From 1975 to 1991, he was the mayor of Kassel, initially gaining the office at the age of only 33. From 1991 to 1999, he was Premier (''Ministerpräsident'') of Hesse in a coalition with the Greens. The coalition won again four years later and was the first red-green coalition to serve two consecutive terms. However, he unexpectedly lost the state elections in February 1999 to Roland Koch's CDU and lost his office. However, in March Oskar Lafontaine resigned as German finance minister and Eichel replaced him a month later. Eichel also served as President (President of the German Bundesrat) of the Bundesrat (Bundesrat of Germany) from November 1998 to April 1999. He has been a member of the Bundestag since 2002, but has announced to retire in 2009. It was the main university of the principality of Hesse and remains a public university of that German state. It now has about 20,000 students and 7,500 employees, making Marburg, a town of 83,000 inhabitants, the proverbial "university town" (''Universitätsstadt''). Though most subjects are grouped, the University of Marburg is not a campus university in the broader sence. The Bizone included the ''Länder'' Schleswig-Holstein, Hamburg, Lower Saxony, Bremen, North Rhine-Westphalia, Hesse, Bavaria and Württemberg-Baden – the northern part of the later Baden-Württemberg – but not the states of the French zone, to wit Württemberg-Hohenzollern, Baden, Rheinland-Pfalz or those in the Soviet zone Mecklenburg, Brandenburg, Saxony-Anhalt, Thuringia and Saxony. Neither part of Berlin was part of the Bizone nor any former parts of Germany, such as the Saarland, which was out of joint allied occupational control since February 1946. The Bizone had a population of approximately 39 million people. The Confederation was above all a military alliance: the members had to supply France with large numbers of military personnel. In return for their cooperation some state rulers were given higher statuses: Baden (Baden Germany), Hesse, Cleves (Cleves (district)), and Berg (Berg (German region)) were made into grand duchies (grand duchy), and Württemberg and Bavaria became kingdoms. States were also made larger by incorporating the many smaller "Kleinstaaten (Kleinstaaterei)," or small former imperial member states. '''Bad Homburg vor der Höhe''' is the district town of the Hochtaunuskreis, Hesse, Germany, on the southern slope of the Taunus, bordering among others Frankfurt am Main and Oberursel (Oberursel (Taunus)). The town's formal name is ''Bad Homburg vor der Höhe'' (translated as "Bad Homburg in front of the height" ( Taunus)", to distinguish it from other places of the same name), abbreviated as ''Bad Homburg v. d. Höhe''. '''Deutsche Bank AG''' (literally "German Bank"; Wikipedia:Hesse Dmoz:Regional Europe Germany States Hesse Commons:Hessen

title A Guide to the History of Physical Education author Fred Eugene Leonard year 1923 pages 227–233, 235–238 location Philadelphia and New York publisher Lea & Febiger Tischbein was born at Haina, in what is now Hesse. Like many contemporary colleagues, he moved to Rome for some years. During his first stay in Rome (1779–1781) his style changed from Rococo to Neoclassicism. He painted landscapes, historical scenes and still lifes. His second stay in Rome lasted 16 years (1783–1799). He met Johann Wolfgang von Goethe there in 1786, made friends with him and accompanied him to Naples in 1787. Later, Goethe recounted this travel in his ''Italian Journey (Italienische Reise)''. thumb 200px left Diogenes of Sinope (Image:Diogenes looking for a man - attributed to JHW Tischbein.jpg) c. 1780 (attributed). Notable among these missionaries is Saint Boniface who was active in the area of Fulda (modern Hesse), establishing or re-establishing the bishoprics of Erfurt, Würzburg (Bishopric of Würzburg), Büraburg, as well as Eichstätt (Bishopric of Eichstätt), Regensburg (Bishopric of Regensburg), Augsburg (Bishopric of Augsburg), Freising (Bishopric of Freising), Passau (Bishopric of Passau) and Salzburg (Bishopric of Salzburg) (739) further to the south-east. History Lichtenau developed from a water castle that the Bishop of Strasbourg had built in the years 1293 to 1296, complete with defensive wall, ditch (ditch (fortification)) and parapet. In 1300 Lichtenau received its city charter and until its Slighting in 1686 it remained a fortress. After the line of the Counts of Hanau-Lichtenau ended the city became part of Hesse in 1736 and then was made part of Baden together with the ''Hanauerland'' in 1803. ''Schmand'' is typical for some German local cuisines, especially Hesse and Thuringia. Noteworthy is that it is not only used in savory dishes but also for cakes called ''Schmandkuchen'' and desserts. :de:Schmand thumb 300px right The "Lord of Glauberg" (c. 500 BC) (Image:Keltenfürst Glauberg Gesicht 2.jpg) The '''Glauberg''' is a Celtic (Celts) oppidum in Hesse, Germany consisting of a fortified settlement and several burial mounds, "a princely seat Prestige goods diagnostic of an elite habitation have not been found; the common designation of the Glauberg as a "princely seat" is based on the contents of the tombs located in a walled sanctuary at the foot of the southern slope. of the late Hallstatt and early La Tène periods." R.K., in John T. Koch, ed., ''Celtic Culture: A Historical Encyclopedia'', 2006, ''s.v.'' "Glauberg". Archaeological (archaeology) discoveries in the 1990s place the site among the most important early Celtic centres in Europe. It provides unprecedented evidence on Celtic burial, sculpture and monumental architecture. '''Twistetal''' is a community in Waldeck-Frankenberg in northwest Hesse, Germany, southwest of Bad Arolsen. Location The name Rhine Gorge refers to the narrow gorge of the Rhine flowing through the Rhenish Slate Mountains between Bingen am Rhein and Rüdesheim am Rhein in the South and Bonn-Bad Godesberg and Bonn-Oberkassel (Oberkassel (Bonn)) in the North. Between Rüdesheim and Lorch (Lorch (Rheingau)), the left bank belongs to the German state of Rhineland-Palatinate; the right bank belongs to the wine region of Rheingau in the state of Hesse. Downstream of Lorch, both banks belong to Rhineland-Palatinate until the river crosses the border with North Rhine-Westphalia shortly before Bonn. The Allied forces ended hostilities of the Second World War on the Middle Rhine on 19 March 1945. The French again took up the administration of the territory in its occupation zone. At end of 1946, the Americans created the State Hesse in their occupation zone; six months later the French founded of the State of Rhineland-Palatinate. Although some areas were combined in the new states that historically do not belong together, a sense of togetherness quickly appeared. The desire for state boundaries more in line with historical territorial boundaries, however, never ceased entirely. Due to its strategic position the town changed regularly. The town was captured in 1586 during the Cologne War, and then occupied by the Spanish from 1589 to 1592. In 1636 the town was captured again by the forces of Hesse. When in 1688 the Elector of Cologne made an alliance with Louis XIV during the War of the Grand Alliance he gave the French access to the Rhine crossing at Kaiserswerth. This caused the Dutch and Brandenburg to lay siege to the town in the June 1689. The French garrison surrendered at the end of the month when their supplies were destroyed by fire. The French reoccupied Kaiserswerth in 1701 during the War of the Spanish Succession and the Allies laid siege to it again in 1702. After a long and hard struggle the town surrendered and the Alliance decided to demolish the fortifications. http: www.fortified-places.com kaiserswerth The '''Kinzig''' is a river in southern Hesse, Germany. It is a right tributary of the Main (Main (river)). It is 82 km long. Its source is in the Spessart hills, near Schlüchtern. The Kinzig flows into the Main in Hanau. The Main-Kinzig-Kreis (district) was named after the river. Towns along the Kinzig are Schlüchtern, Steinau an der Straße, Bad Soden-Salmünster, Gelnhausen, and Hanau. '''Peter Gruss''' (born 28 June 1949 in Alsfeld, Hesse) is a German (Germany) developmental biologist, and the current president of the Max-Planck-Gesellschaft Prof. Dr. Peter Gruss, President of the Max Planck Society (having been elected for the term from 2002 to 2008 and reelected for the current term 2008-2014). DB negotiated with the states (States of Germany) of North Rhine-Westphalia, Rhineland-Palatinate and Hesse over the route. Each state had objections to the bypassing of the cities on the Rhine, particularly Bonn, Andernach, Koblenz, Mainz and Wiesbaden and four other routes were examined that passed through some of these. No agreement was reached and the Federal Cabinet (Cabinet of Germany) agreed on 20 December 1989 to a recommendation of the Transport Minister to adopt the A3 route and, among other things, to include a station at Limburg (Limburg an der Lahn).

Norton & Company, 1999 edition, ISBN 0-393-31839-7, p. 61. to immigrate and farm Russian lands while maintaining their language and culture. Although the first received little response, the second improved the benefits offered and was more successful in attracting colonists. People in other countries such as France and England were more inclined to migrate to the colonies in the Americas than to the Russian frontier. Other countries, such as Austria (Habsburg Monarchy), forbade emigration. The settlers came mainly from Bavaria, Baden, Hesse, the Palatinate (Palatinate (region)) and the Rhineland, over the years 1763 to 1767. ''Bodenreform'' As landed aristocrats, the Junkers owned most of the arable land in the Prussian and eastern German states. This was in contrast to the Catholic southern States such as Bavaria, Württemberg or Baden, where land was owned by small farms, or the mixed agriculture of the western states like Hesse or Westphalia. This gave the Junkers a virtual monopoly on all agriculture in the German states east of the Elbe river. Examples: Landgrave of Thuringia, Landgrave of Hesse (later split in Hesse-Kassel and Hesse-Darmstadt (Landgraviate of Hesse-Darmstadt)), Landgrave of Leuchtenberg.
