History[eedit | eedit soorce]

The Regierungsbezirk Detmold haes twa historical ruits:

  • the East Westphalie pairt (amaist 80% o the auriea) belangit tae the umwhile Proushie Province o Westphalie an thare it formit the unit o the Regierungsbezirk Minden. In 1946 the Proushie Province formit the new state o North Rhine-Westphalie alang wi the northren Rhineland.
  • the region roughly aroond the the day's destrict o Lippe wis criled Land Lippe till 1947 an it wis a separate German State juist like Prosuhie. Till 1918 it haed been a principality (Fürstentum), then a Free State (Freistaat) an so it haes a different historical backgrund than East Westphalie.
