The territories of the Swabian Circle

The Swabian Circle (German: Schwäbischer Reichskreis) was an Imperial Circle of the Holy Roman Empire. It was created in 1500 comprising of a great number of states (most emerging after the collapse of the old Duchy of Swabia), although only Württemberg, Baden, and the Bishopric of Augsburg were of any great importance. The circle lost several members in the 16th and 17th Centuries to the growing Swiss Confederation which was confirmed by the Peace of Westphalia in 1648.
