History

Swabian government building in Augsburg
The Bavarian administrative region of Swabia is the eastern part of the duchy of Swabia. Already after the execution of the Swabian duke Conradin in Naplesmarker in 1268, his uncle, the Bavarian duke Louis inherited some of Conradin's possessions in Swabia. In 1803 with the German Mediatisation Bavaria acquired the further East Swabian territories which were merged together with Palatinate-Neuburgmarker under the old name Swabia which was introduced in 1837 by king Ludwig I of Bavaria. In 1945 Lindaumarker was divested by France, but reunited with Swabia in 1955. In 1972 the former Swabian city Neuburg an der Donaumarker was reunited with Upper Bavaria.
