More about the History of Bad Bederkesa

Bad Bederkesa belonged to the Prince-Archbishopric of Bremen (Bremen vacation rentals | Bremen travel guide) (est. as principality of imperial immediacy in 1180). In 1380 - under the reign of Prince-Archbishop Albert II - knights of the family von Mandelsloh and other Verdian and Bremian robber barons ravaged burghers of the city of Bremen and people in the entire Prince-Archbishopric. In 1381 the city's troops successfully ended the brigandage and captured the castle of Bederkesa and the pertaining bailiwick. In 1386 the city of Bremen made the noble families, holding the estates of Altluneburg (a part of today's Schiffdorf) and Elmlohe (a component municipality of today's Samtgemeinde Bederkesa), its vassals.

In 1648 the Prince-Archbishopric was transformed into the Duchy of Bremen, which was first ruled in personal union by the Swedish Crown. In November 1654, after the Second Bremian War, Bremen had to cede Bederkesa and Lehe (a part of today's Bremerhaven) to the Duchy of Bremen (Recess of Stade (Stade vacation rentals | Stade travel guide) Treaty). In 1715 the Duchy of Bremen became a fief to the House of Hanover. In 1807 the ephemeric Kingdom of Westphalia annexed the Duchy, before France annexed it in 1810. In 1813 the Duchy was restored to the Electorate of Hanover, which - after its upgrade to the Kingdom of Hanover in 1814 - incorporated the Duchy in a real union and the Ducal territory, including Bederkesa, became part of the new Stade Region, established in 1823.
