Description

Hesse is right in the middle of Germany. Cassel is a town between Hannover and Frankfurt. Hesse was put in the charge of a landgrave (military commander) in the 13th century. In 1567 the domain was divided into four smaller territories. Two of them: Hesse-Cassell and Hesse-Darmstadt, survived into the 19th century.
