The Grand Duchy of Baden (Großherzogtum Baden) was one of the larger constituent states of the German Empire. Baden's capital was Karlsruhe, and other important cities included Baden-Baden, Rastatt, and Freiburg. Baden is located in southwestern Germany and its territory includes the storied Black Forest. Today it is part of the German state of Baden-Württemberg (Bundesland Baden-Württemberg).
Baden's dynasty goes back to the Counts of Breisgau whose title traces to the 10th century. The Margraviate of Baden (Markgrafschaft Baden) was established on April 27, 1112. Over the centuries, more territories were added. On August 24, 1535, the margraviate was split into the Upper Margraviate of Baden, usually called Baden-Baden, and the Lower Margraviate of Baden, usually called Baden-Durlach. The Baden-Baden line became extinct on October 21, 1771, and Margrave Karl Friedrich of Baden-Durlach reunited the Baden possessions and took the title Margrave of Baden. On July 25, 1803, Karl Friedrich was made a prince-elector with the title Markgraf von Baden, Kurfürst des Heiligen Römischen Reiches, Pfalzgraf bei Rhein, etc.
On July 25, 1806, in the wake of Napoleon's victories, the Holy Roman Empire was abolished and Napoleon formed the Confederation of the Rhine. Baden was elevated to a Grand Duchy. Baden grew by 1810 to 15,000 square kilometers with a population of almost one million. By 1815, Baden had joined the allies and became a member of the German Confederation.
Baden was especially hard hit by the liberal revolutions of 1848-49. The army mutinied in May 1849, and the Republic of Baden was declared on June 1. Prussian and other Confederation troops crushed the rebellion, forcing its leaders into exile and returning the Grand Duke to his throne. A number of the revolutionary leaders would flee to the United States, and several served in the U.S. Civil War.
Baden was relatively quiet after these upheavals, and enjoyed a degree of stability under one of the longest serving monarches of the 19th century. Grand Duke Friedrich I had been regent from 1852 to 1856, and reigned as Grand Duke from 1856 until 1907.
Baden had sided with Austria in the Austro-Prussian War, but lost relatively little territory. In 1871, the Grand Duchy became part of the German Empire, which it remained part of until the abdication of the Kaiser and Grand Duke Friedrich II in November 1918 (it was Grand Duke Friedrich II's cousin and heir, Prince Max von Baden, who in one of his final acts of his brief tenure as chancellor announced the Kaiser's abdication on November 9, 1918).
A republic was declared on November 22, 1918, the day the Grand Duke abdicated, and Baden went on to became a state of the Weimar Republic. After World War Two, Baden was occupied by French and U.S. troops. In 1952 it was merged with Württemberg to form Baden-Württemberg.
