ⓘ Altbayern

Altbayern is the territory and people of the three oldest parts of the Free State of Bavaria, which were earlier known as Kurbayern after the former Electorate of Bavaria.

Altbayern mainly consists of the following Bavarian Regierungsbezirke administrative districts:

  • Upper Palatinate Oberpfalz. (Верхний Пфальц Оберпфальц)
  • Lower Bavaria Niederbayern. (Нижняя Бавария Niederbayern В)
  • Upper Bavaria Oberbayern. (Верхней Баварии, Верхней Баварии)

Since the term Altbayern is based on cultural difference compared to Franconia i.e., upper, middle and lower Franconia, and Swabia i.e. Bavarian Swabia, in some areas surrounding the upper Franconian town of Wunsiedel, as well as the Swabian Aichach-Friedberg district, are considered as part of Altbayern, because they share the same history, language and culture as the three previously mentioned areas. Strictly speaking, the Upper Austrian Innviertel also belongs to Altbayern, since it was part of the Bavarian electorate, while he was attached to Ertsgertsoga Austria in accordance with the 1779 Treaty of Teschen.

The state of "Baiern" has been called "Bayern" since the reign of king Ludwig I 1825-1848. From the beginning of his reign 1825 the official spelling of Bavaria was changed from "Baiern" to "Bayern" because of the kings love for the culture of Ancient Greece. Ideally, the term "Baiern" it would be logical description for "Altbayern" area, but since there is no difference in sound between the words "Baiern" and "Bavaria", and there is a great danger to mix them in writing, the term "Altbayern" is used.

Franconian and Swabian territories were United to the Kingdom of Bavaria, while the German mediatization and at the Congress of Vienna of 1815, therefore, they still have strong cultural and linguistic differences from Altbayern. Bavarian dialects are spoken in Altbayern and the neighboring Austrian lands, in contrast to Eastern Franconia and Swabian Alemannic in the Franconian and Bavarian regions of Swabia.
