Germany Governmental District Boundaries, 1848, German Historical GIS

These polygons represent 74 governmental districts (Regierungsbezirke) existing in several of the sovereign states of the German Confederation (the Deutscher Bund) in 1848. All were located within the (future) boundaries of the German Empire that would be founded in 1871("core Germany"). In 1848, governmental districts formed the middle level administrative units in nearly all of the larger territorial German states: Prussia, Hanover, Saxony, Bavaria, Wurttemberg, Baden, Hesse-Kassel, and Hesse-Darmstadt, where in comparison to 1834, ten new units had been created in 1848, while the former ones had been changed into provinces.
