Waldeck first came into existence as a county in the Holy Roman Empire around 1200 AD. In 1625, Pyrmont was added to the county. In 1712, by order of the kaiser, the counts were elevated to the dignity of prince and Waldeck-Pyrmont became a principality. From 1815 to 1867, Waldeck-Pyrmont was confirmed in its independency by the Congress of Vienna.

In 1867, administration passed to Prussia. The principality was fully integrated in 1870. By a successful plebiscite Pyrmont voted to join Hannover, but it was overridden.

The prinicipality was taken over by Prussia during the Second Great War. Autonomy was restored after the fall of the Hesslerian Regime.
