Prussia - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (2243 words)
Prussia as a state was de facto abolished by the Nazis in 1934, de jure by the Allied Powers in 1947.
From the late 18th century the expanded Prussia dominated North Germany politically, economically and in terms of population size, and was the core of the unified German Empire formed in 1871.
Being predominantly a northern and eastern German state, Prussia had a large Protestant majority, although there were substantial Roman Catholic populations in the Rhineland, while a number of districts in Posen, Silesia, West Prussia, and the Warmia and Masuria regions of East Prussia had populations of predominantly Catholic Poles.
