Schleswig and Holstein



Overview.

From the 12th century until 1375, Schleswig or South Jutland was a hereditary Duchy under the Danish suzerainty that was given as appanage to younger members of the Danish Royal House of Sven Estridsen.

In 1375, with the death of Duke Henry, the Schleswig branch of the House of Estridsen became extinct, and the Duchy returned to the Crown of Denmark.

In 1386, Regent Margaret of Denmark invested Count Gerhard VI of Holstein-Rendsburg with Schleswig as a hereditary Duchy under the Danish suzerainty. Holstein had been a County in the Holy Roman Empire

In 1459, with the death of Adolphus VIII, the last male descendent of Gerhard VI, the Rendsburg branch of the House of Schaumburg became extinct in the male line. The Duchy of Schleswig and Adolphus VIII's portion of the County of Holstein passed to Christian I of Oldenburg (+1481), King of Denmark, who was Adolphus VIII's nephew, in 1460. Christian I founded the Holstein branch of the House of Oldenburg.

In 1474, the Emperor of the Holy Roman Empire elevated the County of Holstein-Rendsburg-Plön (with the land of Dithmarschen) to the rank of Duchy.

In 1544, Christian III (+1559), John "the Elder" (+1580) and Adolphus (+1586), the sons of Frederick I, King of Denmark and Duke of Schleswig-Holstein, divided Schleswig and Holstein. In Holstein the brothers equally enjoyed the status of Imperial Estate, and their Holstein possessions were Imperial immediate territories under the suzerainty of the Holy Roman Empire. In Schleswig John "the Elder" and Adolphus recognized the Danish suzerainty. John “the Elder", whose capital was in Hadersleben, left no children and his parts of Schleswig and Holstein passed to his brothers' descendents. The portion of Schleswig and Holstein, which passed to Adolphus, became known as the Gottorp / Gottorf Schleswig-Holstein. Christian III, who became King of Denmark as the first-born son of Frederick I, received the portion of Schleswig and Holstein that remained united with the Crown of Denmark. It became known as the Glückstadt or the "Royal" Schleswig-Holstein.

In 1658, by the Peace of Roskilde, the King of Denmark gave up his suzerainty over the Gottorp part of the Duchy of Schleswig, and the Dukes of the Gottorp branch became sovereign rulers in their portion of Schleswig.

In 1721, by the Peace of Nystaedt, the King of Denmark annexed the possessions of the Gottorp branch in Schleswig.

In 1773, the Duke of Holstein from the Gottorp branch ceded his portion of Holstein to the King of Denmark who united the whole of Holstein.

In 1806, with the abolishment of the Holy Roman Empire, the King of Denmark acquired a full sovereignty in the Duchy of Holstein.

The Congress of Vienna (September 1814-June 1815) created the German Union, and the King of Denmark became its member in his quality of Duke of Holstein and Lauenburg.

According to the succession arrangements of 1852-1853, Christian (+1906) from the Sønderborg-Glücksburg branch of the Oldenburg-Holstein House was chosen to succeed Frederick VII in Denmark, Schleswig and Holstein. In Nov 1863, with the death of King Frederick VII of Denmark, the direct branch of the House of Oldenburg-Holstein became extinct in the male line, and Christian succeeded as Christian IX, King of Denmark and Duke of Schleswig-Holstein. On November 18, King Christian IX signed the so-called "November constitution" establishing a shared law of succession and a common parliament for both Schleswig and Denmark. The German Confederation saw this as a violation of the London Protocol of 1852. In response, on December 24, Saxon and Hanoverian troops marched into Holstein on behalf of the Confederation. Supported by the German soldiers and by loyal Holsteiners, Duke Frederick-Christian-Augustus (+1880) from the Sønderborg-Augustenborg branch, who had proclaimed himself Duke Frederick VIII of Schleswig-Holstein, assumed the government of Holstein. On February 1, 1864, the Austrian and Prussian forces invaded Schleswig. As the result of the campaign Denmark capitulated. By the Treaty of Vienna (October 30, 1864), King Christian IX ceded Schleswig, Holstein and Lauenburg to Prussia and Austria. The rights of Duke Frederick VIII were put aside, as Prussia and Austria took over the administration of Schleswig and Holstein respectively under the Gastein Convention (August 14, 1865). After the Austro-Prussian War of 1866 Prussia annexed Schleswig and Holstein.

In June 1920, Northern areas of Schleswig officially passed to Denmark after a referendum.



Notes:
1. All male legitimate descendants of King Frederick I of Denmark had the right to the title "Heir of Norway".
2. In the 15th-16th centuries, Denmark was an elective monarchy; its Kings between their elections and coronation bore the title "Elected King of Denmark"; after the coronations they bore the title "King of Denmark, the Wends, and the Goths".
3. Frederick III, King of Denmark, gave his younger brother John "the Younger" (+1622), some territories in Schleswig and in Holstein as apanage. This branch became known as Sønderborg / Sonderburg. His sons and grandsons founded several sub-branches of the Sønderborg branch: Franzhagen, Wiesenburg, Plön, Norburg, Glücksburg, Augustenborg / Augustenburg, Beck, etc.). By the end of the 18th century all of them but Augustenburg and Beck became extinct in the male line. The appanages of the Sonderburg branch were under the territorial overlordship of the Kings of Denmark in their quality of the Dukes of Holstein and Schleswig.

Holstein

Overview.

In the 12th century, Adolphus I of Schaumburg (Schauenburg) (+1131), received the County of Holstein as a fief of the Holy Roman Empire.

John I (+1263) and Gerhard I (+1290), sons of Count Adolphus IV of Holstein founded, respectively, the branches of Kiel and Itzehoe of the Schaumburg House.
Count John I left his possessions to his sons Adolphus V (+1308), who resided in Segeberg, and John II "the One Eye", who resided in Kiel (+ca 1321). Both the brother left no male heir, and by 1316, their possessions had passed to the descendents of Gerhard I (+1290).

Gerhard II (+1312), Adolphus VI (+1315) and Henry I (+1304), sons of Count Gerhard I of Holstein-Itzehoe (+1290), founded, respectively, the branches of Plön, Pinneberg-Schaumburg and Rendsburg.

In 1390, the branch of Plön became extinct in the male line, and its lands passed to the branch of Rendsburg.

In 1386, the branch of Rendsburg acquired the Duchy of Schleswig.
In 1459, the branch of Rendsburg became extinct in the male line with the death of Adolphus VIII.
In 1460, Schleswig with the Rendsburg and Plön parts of Holstein passed to Christian I of Oldenburg (+1481), King of Denmark, who was son of Hedwig, Adolphus VIII's sister.
Holstein remained a fief of the Holy Roman Empire.

In 1640, with the death of Otto V, the branch of Pinneberg, which also possessed the ancestral County of Schaumburg, became extinct in the male line, and its possessions in Holstein (Pinneberg) passed to the Kings of Denmark.

Catherine (II), the wife of Peter III, Emperor of Russia and Duke of Holstein-Gottorp, had her husband arrested and forced him to abdicate the Russian Throne; Catherine became Empress of Russia. In several days, Peter III died, and their son and heir, Paul, succeeded in the Gotorp Holstein (June 1762).
Notes.
In 1773, Paul ceded the Gottorp portion of Holstein to the King of Denmark. In his turn the King of Denmark ceded him the Counties of Oldenburg and Delmenhorst. Paul did not keep the Counties and ceded them to his male relative, Frederick-Augustus (+1785).
In 1796, Paul succeeded his mother, Empress Catherine II, in Russia.
