Note: Alemannia is an ancient region of Central Europe on either side of the Upper Rhine River. It was originally inhabited by the Alamanni, a Germanic tribe. It was conquered by Clovis I in 496, and became a Frankish province. From about 1000 it became one of the five great tribal duchies of early Medieval Germany, comprising modern Baden-W├╝rttemberg, Hesse, and western Bavaria, as well as parts of eastern Switzerland and Alsace. It was ruled by the Hohenstaufen dynasty from about 1077 to 1268, when the duchy was divided. The region was a territorial division of the Holy Roman Empire in the 16th-19th century. Its chief cities included Augsburg, Freiburg, Konstanz, and Ulm.
