(Redirected from East Prussia)
English: East Prussia — the main part of the region of Prussia in northern Europe.
- Located along the southeastern Baltic Sea Coast, between historical Russia and Pomerania.
- A kingdom and historic state from the Late Middle Ages-13th century to the mid 20th century — with dominions of varying size and rule, including:
The State of the Teutonic Order 1224 -1525; The Germanic Protestant Duchy of Prussia 1525–1701; the Province of East Prussia in the German Kingdom of Prussia 1772–1918; and post-WW I Province of East Prussia, an exclave separated from mainland Weimar Germany by Poland until 1939; when reconnected via Polish areas annexed by Nazi Germany until the end of World War II, in May 1945.
- The expulsion of Germans (1946-1950) brought the collapse of East Prussia as a political entity. East Prussia was divided into 3 sections: the USSR—Kaliningrad Oblast (Soviet Russia 1946-1991); People's Republic of Poland—Warmian-Masurian Voivodeship (present day name); and Lithuanian Soviet Socialist Republic—Klaipėda Region.
