This section holds a short summary of the history of the area of present-day Liechtenstein, illustrated with maps, including historical maps of former countries and empires that included present-day Liechtenstein.
|In the feudal Holy Roman Empire the County of Vaduz is founded in 1342. When it is acquiered by the Austrian Liechtenstein family in 1712, it merges in 1719 with the Lordship of Schellenberg (acquiered in 1699) as the Principality of Liechtenstein. France occupies the country for a few years, but Liechtenstein regains its independence in 1815 within the new German Confederation. Liechtenstein remains part of Germany until 1868, and becomes after the dissolution of Germany a fully independent state. Since 1919 Liechtenstein entrusts its external relations to neutral Switzerland.|
