indicated by narrow colored borders.
The color scheme, furthermore, shows how the Saxon portion of the
County of Henneberg, held
in common by the Albertines and the Ernestines till 1660, was
divided between them at that time;
also, how the County of Sponheim, held in common by Baden and the
Palatinate, was divided between
them in 1707 and 1776. The areas in the Empire left uncolored were
divided into petty states.
