Margraviate of Brandenburg, Otto IV, 1267 - 1308 A.D.
|The Margraviate of Brandenburg was a major principality of the Holy Roman Empire from 1157 to 1806 and played a pivotal role in the history of Germany and Central Europe. Brandenburg developed out of the Northern March founded in the territory of the Slavic Wends. Its ruling margraves were established as prestigious prince-electors in the Golden Bull of 1356, allowing them to vote in the election of the Holy Roman Emperor. The state thus became additionally known as Electoral Brandenburg or the Electorate of Brandenburg (Kurbrandenburg or Kurfürstentum Brandenburg). Berlin, in the Margraviate of Brandenburg, was founded in 1237.|
