Zone tampon entre la France et l'Allemagne, le territoire de la Sarre fut fortifié par Louis XIV et forma un département français entre 1795 et 1814 avant de revenir à la Prusse puis au Reich. La région se développa surtout après 1871 avec l'exploitation des mines de charbon. En 1945, la Sarre fut comprise dans la zone d'occupation française et pourvue en 1947 d'un gouvernement. Par divers accords de 1955 à 1959, la Sarre fut rendue à l'Allemagne concurremment au rapprochement franco-allemand.
