BurgundyFrom 888 to 1032 the Burgundian kingdom is split in two: the kingdom of Upper Burgundy from the Reuss and the Saône, and the kingdom of Arles. The latter also includes the Rhone Valley and the Alps. The passes of Mont-Cenis as well as the Greater and Lesser Saint Bernard are in the hands of the kings of Burgundy. When the last Burgundian king dies in 1032, the king of the Germans, Conrad II, receives the crown of the Burgundians in Payerne.Around 925 the present Baden-Württemberg, Alsace and northern Switzerland are united in the Duchy of Swabia. Coming into being here are the dioceses of Constance and Basel, the monasteries of Muri and Einsiedeln, as well as the All Saints Cloisters in Schaffhausen, Zurich, Reichenau and Säckingen.With the appointment of a new head of this duchy in 1079, a new lineage asserts itself at the head of the empire: the Hohenstaufen. This duchy is not a state in the true sense, as it is principally under the military control of the dukes. This scenario of official power inherited from the Carolingian empire is one of the last of its kind.SwabiaNo other family assumes the title and position of Duke of Swabia following the decline of the Hohenstaufen. As a result, smaller political parties can increase their influence, but only up until the time when the Hapsburgs take hold of this title again under Rudolf IV.BavariaOne of the principal constituents of the German Empire is the Duchy of Bavaria which allows its rulers, due to its geographical position, to control the passageways between Italy and the German Empire. The Duchy extends over the Alps and includes present-day Tyrol in Austria and South-Tyrol as well as the territory around Salzburg where the seat of a very significant archdiocese is located. The area around Vienna comprising the eastern border breaks away in 1156 from the Bavarian Duchy. This occurs with the start of control by the Babenbergs who rule until 1246.
