History

This comes from the Germany Wikipedia page, translated electronically:
Bellheim was first mentioned in the Lorsch Codex on June 12, 774. [4]
The original imperial village was lent from the middle of the 13th century and was pledged to the Electoral Palatinate in 1363 . As a sign of Palatinate rule, the Palatinate lion and the lozenges have been documented in community seals since the 15th century . [5]
In the period of the Revolutionary Wars between the late 18th and 19th centuries, the ideas of freedom and fraternity also fell on fertile ground in Bellheim. A liberty tree was planted for the ideals of the revolution.
On July 30, 1793, a battle took place near Bellheim between revolutionary troops and royal units of the Prince de Condé .
Napoleon ensured the spread of the code civil and bound the municipal administration Bellheim to French law. In the course of the European reorganization after the Napoleonic era, Bellheim came to Bavaria in 1816 .
On June 13, 1848, Bellheim was the site of a battle between the so-called free troops and troops of the Germersheim fortress.
During the First and Second World War Bellheim was largely spared from destruction, however, the place was heavily used with accommodation, troops and wounded care.
In the 1950s and 1960s, Bellheim quickly grew into a large residential community .
