Local administration office/districts in the Holy Roman Empire were usually called Amt. Muttersholtz, Baldenheim, Oberrathsamhausen, Ehnwihr, Boofsheim and other local villages in today's Departement du Bas-Rhin, France were part of "Amt Wolfisheim", with offices in Wolfisheim, a village just west of the large city of Strasbourg

Much or all of of what is now the Departement du Bas-Rhin was under the administration of Amt Wolfisheim, which was part of the larger Grafschaft Hanau-Lichtenberg area of the Heiliges Römisches Reich (Holy Roman Empire) until about 1680.

After the French Revolution of 1789, the First French Republic created Departements including Bas-Rhin, and Haut-Rhin, and their subdivisions called Cantons including Markholsheim where the above-named villages (Muttersholtz, Baldenheim, etc.) reside.
