Salve - Willkommen ! (ER)Lebenswertes Trier! Älteste Stadt Deutschlands! 8 x Welterbe Trier – Zentrum der Antike

Trier in the 19th Century

A wealthy segment of townspeople grew up under French government. But in 1815, with the transfer of the Rhine Province to Prussian sovereignty, poverty in the city increased rapidly. Nevertheless, the spirit of Enlightenment in the Casino Officers’ Mess and at the upper levels of the secondary school was ever-present, a situation exacerbating the tensions between the Trier townspeople and the Prussians. This mixture of poverty and democratic thought forms the breeding ground for the Revolution of 1848.
