Deutsch: Kurfürsten des Heiligen Römischen Reiches
English: The prince-electors or electoral princes of the Holy Roman Empire — German: Kurfürst (singular) Kurfürsten (plural) — were the members of the electoral college of the Holy Roman Empire, having the function of electing the Emperors of Germany. There were 3 clerical electors (Archbishop of Mainz, Trier and Cologne) and 4 wordly electors (King of Bohemia, Duke of Saxony, Marquess of Brandenburg and Count of Palatinate). After 1648 the duke of Bavaria was added. Since 1697 was Brunswick-Lüneburg the ninth prince-elector. In 1803, the Grand Duke of Baden, the Duke of Salzburg, the Duke of Württemberg and the Count of Hessen-Kassel were made electors. In 1806, the Empire (and its electoral college) dissolved.
