Alsatian Nordgau

The Alsatian Nordgau was a medieval county.

In medieval times the area of the former was Alsace in two districts divided, the Nordgau ( "Nordgowe" Lower Rhine ) and Südgau ( "Suntgowe" Sundgau , Haut-Rhin ) were called. The border roughly corresponded to that which was established in 297 when the Roman province Germania superior was divided into Maxima Sequanorum in the south and Germania prima in the north - at the Landgraben south of Schlettstadt . Until well into modern times, the diocese of Strasbourg ( ecclesiastical province of Mainz ) also bordered the diocese of Basel (Ecclesiastical province of Besançon ).

The Alsatian Nordgau must be differentiated from the Bavarian Nordgau that also existed at the same time .

From the 9th to the end of the 11th century, the northern Alsace region was almost entirely in the hands of the Etichones . The family developed into the Counts of Egisheim and Dagsburg , but their property can be seen in Upper Alsace. The north gau was largely absorbed by the bishopric of Strasbourg, parts of it also came to the Habsburgs and to Upper Austria. Other territories belonged to Rappoltstein , the imperial city of Strasbourg and some of the imperial cities of the ten- city league, as well as the possessions of the Lower Alsatian knighthood.
