    Hesseball or Hessiaball is a federal stateball of the Federal Republic of Germanyball. The state capital is Wiesbadenball; the largest cityball is  Frankfurtball. Until the formation of the German Reich in 1871, Hesse was an independent country ruled by a Grand Duke ( Grand Duchy of Hesseball). Due to divisions after World War II, the modern federal stateball does not cover the entire cultural region of Hesseball which includes both the State of Hesse and the area known as Rhenish Hesseball (Rheinhessenball) in the neighbouring stateball of Rhineland-Palatinateball.


    Hesseball was born as a 2ball, then adopted by Germaniaball, HREball and Germanyball. Marburg counts as one centre of the reformation in europe, in Frankfurt the German Stock Exchange (DAX), banks and one of the biggest airports of the world are situated there. It is where the elements Hassium and Darmstadtium were discovered/created.

    As early as the Paleolithic period, the Central Hessian region was inhabited. Due to the favorable climate of the location, people lived there about 50,000 years ago during the last glacial period, as burial sites show from this era. Finds of archeological tools in southern Hesse in Rüsselsheim suggest Pleistocene hunters about 13,000 years ago. The Züschen tomb (German: Steinkammergrab von Züschen, sometimes also Lohne-Züschen) is a prehistoric burial monument, located between Lohne and Züschen, near Fritzlar, Hesse, Germany. Classified as a gallery grave or a Hessian-Westphalian stone cist (hessisch-westfälische Steinkiste), it is one of the most important megalithic monuments in Central Europe. Dating to the late fourth millennium BC (and possibly remaining in use until the early third), it belongs to the Late Neolithic Wartberg culture.

    An early  Celtic presence in what is now Hesse is indicated by a mid-fifth-century BC La Tène style burial uncovered at Glauberg. The region was later settled by the Germanic Chatti tribe around the first century BC, and the name Hesse is a continuation of that tribal name.

    The  ancient Romans had a military camp in Dorlar, and in Waldgirmes directly on the eastern outskirts of Wetzlar was a civil settlement under construction. Presumably, the provincial government for the occupied territories of the right bank of  Germaniaball was planned at this location. The governor of Germania, at least temporarily, likely had resided here. The settlement appears to have been abandoned by the Romans after the devastating Battle of the Teutoburg Forest failed in the year 9 AD. The Chatti were also involved in the Revolt of the Batavi in 69 AD.

    Hessiaball, from the early seventh century on, served as a buffer between areas dominated by Saxonsball (to the north) and Franksball who brought the area to the south under their control in the early sixth century and occupied  Thuringiaball (to the east) in 531.

    By 650, Franksball were establishing themselves as overlords, which is suggested by archeological evidence of burials, and were building fortifications in various places including Christenberg. By 690 they were taking direct control over Hessiaball, apparently to counteract expansion by Saxonsball, who built fortifications in Gaulskopf and Eresburg across the river Diemel, the northern boundary of Hessiaball. The Büraburg (which already had a Frankish settlement in the sixth century) was one of the places the Franks fortified in order to resist the Saxon pressure, and according to John-Henry Clay the Büraburg was "probably the largest man-made construction seen in Hessia for at least seven hundred years". Walls and trenches totalling one kilometer in length were made, and they enclosed "8 hectares of a spur that offered a commanding view over Fritzlar and the densely populated heart of Hessia".

    Following Saxon incursions into Chattish territory in the seventh century, two gaus had been established; a Frankish one, comprising an area around Fritzlar and Kassel, and a Saxon one. In the 9th century, the Saxon Hessengau also came under the rule of the Franconians. In the 12th, century it was passed to  Thuringiaball.

    19th century

    The ruler of  Hesse-Kasselball was elevated to the status of  Prince-Elector in 1803, but this remained without effect, as Holy Roman Empireball was disbanded in 1806. The territory was annexed by Napoleon to Kingdom of Westphaliaball in 1807, but restored to the Elector in 1813. While other Electors had gained other titles, becoming either Kings or Grand Dukes, the Elector of Hesse-Kassel alone retained the anachronistic title. The name survived in the term Kurhessen, denoting the region around Kassel. In 1866, it was annexed by  Prussiaball, together with the Free City of Frankfurtball, the small  Landgraviate of Hesse-Homburgball, and Duchy of Nassauball, which were then combined into Province of Hesse-Nassauball.

    Hesse-Darmstadtball was elevated by Napoleon to the status of a Grand Duchy in 1806, becoming the Grand Duchy of Hesseball. In the Austro-Prussian War, it fought on the side of Austriaball against  Prussiaball, but retained its autonomy in defeat because a greater part of the country was situated south of the Main River and Prussiaball did not dare to expand beyond the Main line, as this might have provoked Franceball. However, the parts of Hesse-Darmstadtball north of the Main (the region around the town of Gießen, commonly called Oberhessen) were incorporated in North German Confederationball. In 1871, after Franceball's defeat in the Franco-Prussian War, the rest of the Grand Duchy joined German Empireball. Around the turn of the 20th century, Darmstadt was one of the centres of the Jugendstil. Until 1907, Grand Duchy of Hesseball used the Hessian red and white lion as its coat-of-arms.

    20th century

    The German revolution of 1918 transformed Grand Duchy of Hesseball to People's State of Hesseball. The parts of Hesse-Darmstadtball on the western banks of the Rhine (province Rheinhessen) were occupied by Franceball until 1930 under the terms of the Versailles peace treaty that officially ended World War I in 1919.

    After World War II, the Hessian territory west of the Rhine was again occupied by Franceball, whereas the rest of the region was part of USAball occupation zone. The French separated their part of Hesse from the rest of the region and incorporated it into the newly founded state of Rhineland-Palatinateball (Rheinland-Pfalz). United Statesball, on the other side, proclaimed the state of Greater Hesse (Groß-Hessen) on 19 September 1945, out of Hesse-Darmstadtball and most of Hesse-Nassauball. On 4 December 1946 Groß-Hessen was officially renamed Hessen.

    How to draw

    Drawing Hesseball is simple:

    1. Divide the basic circle shape into two horizontal stripes, red and white
    2. Draw the coat of arms of Hesse in the center
    3. Draw the eyes and you've finised.
    4. Hesseball looks like  Polandball, but Hesseball can control and go into space.
