History in Liechtenstein

In the 3rd century AD Alemanni (the common ancient name for the Germans) pushed the borders of the Roman Empire to the south and began to populate the current territory of Liechtenstein. Around the same time, Christianity came here. In the 6th century, the Franks conquered these territories and until 911 the imperial Carolingian dynasty ruled here.

Later, the German Empire broke up into separate duchies, one of which contained the possessions of Schellenberg and Vaduz. In the 14th century they were given to the Holy Roman Empire, and in 1507 Emperor Maximilian granted Vaduz special rights and privileges, including sovereignty and tax collection. These rights were transferred to the Austrian Liechtenstein family.

At the end of the 17th century and the beginning of the 18th century, Schellenberg and Vaduz were completely sold to the Prince of Liechtenstein, and in 1719 they were united into one Principality of Liechtenstein.

During the Napoleonic Wars, the principality was captured either by the French or by the Russians, as a result, an agreement was signed according to which it entered the Confederation of the Rhine. In 1815, after the defeat of Napoleon, the Principality of Liechtenstein joined the newly formed German Confederation. After secession from the Confederation in 1866, the Principality gained full independence. Since then, the country began to maintain close ties with Austria-Hungary.

After the First World War, the Principality of Liechtenstein terminated the treaty with Austria and shifted its focus to Switzerland. In 1924, a customs union was concluded between the countries. Since then, Swiss currency units have been in circulation in the Principality of Liechtenstein, and Swiss diplomats represent the Principality in other countries. Today the country is a member of the UN.
