Historical background


GERMANY - Mecklenburg-Schwerin - FREDERIC FRANCOIS-IV

(1897-1918)

The Grand Duchy of Mecklenburg-Schwerin is governed by the Grand Duke Friedrich Franz IV from 1898 to 1918. The diet, the political assembly of the time, consisted of knights (nobles and wealthy bourgeois landowners) and representatives cities. Democratic representation of the rural population does not exist. Although serfdom was abolished in 1820 in the German Empire, Mecklenburg remains the stronghold of the Knights, who kept it the absolute supremacy through the old feudal constitution. Their areas are the smallest administrative units in the region. The industry is virtually nonexistent in Mecklenburg in 1900 and agriculture reigns supreme: cereals, fodder, potatoes and legumes. The harvest is sold in Berlin and Leipzig.
