History
Brandenburg was the center of the power on which the kingdom of Prussia was founded, and it was merged with that kingdom in 1701. It became a province of Prussia in 1815 and remained after the unification of Germany in 1871and until the end of World War II. After the war the part of Brandenburg west of the Oder River was constituted as a separate state upon the end of Prussia by the Allies in 1947. In 1952, however, Brandenburg’s old identity was lost when the East German states were dissolved into new districts. The state of Brandenburg was re-created mainly out of the former East German districts of Potsdam, Frankfurt, and Cottbus in the process of the unifying of East and West Germany in 1990.
