The name Palatine is generally used to refer to two geographically separate regions, the Lower and the Upper Palatinate. The Lower Palatinate occupied both banks of the mid-Rhine between its Neckar and Main tributaries. Today it is mostly part of the German state of Rhineland-Palatinate. The Upper Palatinate was located in northern Bavaria on both sides of the Naab river, stretching to the east as far as the Bohemian forest.
