History

During the Middle Ages there was continuous fight between the bishops of Mainz and the counts of Rieneck. Both attempted to rule the region and erected castles in the Spessart mountains. Later other tiny counties became involved in these fights as well. Mainz is a city in Germany and the capital of the German federal state of Rhineland-Palatinate. ...


During the 13th century the cities along the Main River emerged. Due to the trade on the river their wealth grew, and this became a very prosperous region. Prosperity ended abruptly in the Thirty Years' War, when the area was devastated and depopulated. This article or section does not cite its references or sources. ...


In 1803 the clerical states of Germany were dissolved, among them the bishopric principality of Mainz. Until 1816 the state of Bavaria managed to annex the entire region.


The district of Miltenberg was established in 1972 by merging the former districts of Miltenberg and Obernburg.
