The Hohenzollern Lands were created in 1850 when the duchies Hohenzollern-Hechingen and Hohenzellern-Sigmaringen were merged, at which point they became a Prussian province. This area was mostly surrounded by Württemberg, with a small shared border with Baden. Today this area is part of the German state Baden-Württemberg.
