Hohenzollerische Lande

The Hohenzollerische Lande, or Hohenzollern for short, is a historical administrative region of Prussia. Hohenzollern is today a part of the German state of Baden-Württemberg. It had 74,000 inhabitants (1939); its capital was Sigmaringen.

Hohenzollern was created in 1850 by joining the principalities of Hohenzollern-Sigmaringen and Hohenzollern-Hechingen. In 1946, the French military administration made it a part of the state of Württemberg-Hohenzollern.
