Germany: History of Koblenz

On Thursday I got six postcards: three from Germany, one from the Philippines, one from Malaysia and one from France.

One of the cards from Germany is the Chronicle card of Koblenz. Koblenz was founded in the 1st century as Roman military camp. Later a Frankish royal court was formed in the city. In 1018 Koblenz became a part of the Archbishopric of Trier. It was destroyed in the Nine Years' War and was later reconstructed with Baroque buildings. In 1794 Koblenz became a part of France and in 1816 of Prussia. Today is Koblenz a part of the German State of Rhineland-Palatinate.


The card was sent from the Postcrossing Meet-up in Limburg.
Stamp:
Dresden (from set of two) (issued 03-04-2014)


Thank You very much Kate!
