Arms of Westphalia

Westphalia has been attributed to several entities over the centuries, but today’s Westphalia is roughly the land between the Ruhr, Rhine and Weser rivers. Westphalia began as a duchy of Saxony, but was later made its own duchy by the Emperor Barbarossa in 1180, although the Duchy of Westphalia was only a small area south of the Lippe river, and drastically smaller than today’s area.

Westphalia became a kingdom in 1807, and remained so for the next six years, as a vassal state under Napoleon. Westphalia is today a largely industrial area, with mostly industrial exports.
