Introduction

The later duchy of (Upper) Saxony was formed out of the Saxon palatinate after the duchy of Saxony proper —nowadays Lower Saxony / Niedersachsen— was liquidated in 1180. In 1423 margrave Frederick of Meissen, count of Wettin, received the duchy and the electoral dignity of Upper Saxony. The Electorate of Saxony was declared a kingdom on 20th December 1806.
