WikiProject Prussia

WikiProject Prussia is a collaboration to organise articles about Prussia. There is clearly far too much information about Prussia to be confined to a single page. This project originally concentrated on just the Kingdom of Prussia, but now it will cover all periods, including modern.

In addition to developing articles on the geopolitical subdivisions of Prussia, this WikiProject is also a place for the coordination of all other articles related to Prussia. Wikiproject Prussia was inactive for most of the 2010s, but with your help, suns that have set may rise again.

Article Organization for Subdivisions Edit

The articles shall be organized in a hierarchy that matches the administrative structure of the Prussian Kingdom as it existed in 1905. Alternate organizations (before and after this time) can be made if sufficient material can be found to accompany the division breakdowns. Otherwise, the alternate organizations should be treed in the main article.

The article hierarchy is therefore:

Examples: See these articles for examples of the structure, organization and linkage

In the Standesämter series of articles, links to the towns will be to the article for the current day version of the town, which may use the current name in a language other than German if the town is no longer part of Germany. These town articles should contain the entire history of that town, so it would be unnecessary to create pages for only the history of the scope of this project. ---->
