Germany: History of Bremen

Yesterday I got four postcards: two from Germany and two from Italy.

One of the cards from Germany is the Chronicle card of Bremen. Bremen was mentioned for the first time in 782 and in 787 it became a bishop's see. In the 11th century was Bremen known as Rome of the North. The city joined the Hanseatic League in 1358 and got the imperial immediacy in 1646. After the Congress of Vienna in 1815 the city became a free city within the German Confederation. In 1867 Prussia got the military sovereignty over Bremen and in 1871 Bremen became a State of the German Empire. Today is Bremen the capital of the German State of Bremen.
