Map of Württemberg-HohenzollernFlag of Württemberg-Hohenzollern






















As a result of the Yalta Conference, France was given its own occupation zone in Germany. The border between the American and French sectors was set along the highway Karlsruhe-Stuttgart-Ulm (nowadays the A8). Regions south of the road became part of the French Zone.


France joined the Prussian Hohenzollern(-Sigmaringen) with the southern part of Württemberg to form Württemberg-Hohenzollern and created the state of South Baden from the southern part of the former Baden Free State.


On 18 May 1947 Württemberg-Hohenzollern adopted a constitution. In 1949 parliament adopted the constitution for the West German states and Württemberg-Hohenzollern became a Land of the Federal Republic of Germany on 23 May 1949.
