- ‘The margravate took its name from the town of Brandenburg, west of Berlin.’
- ‘Although it would remain under Bohemian control for most, but not all, of the next several centuries, Moravia was actually run as a separate margravate, usually under the control of a younger son of the Bohemian ruler.’
- ‘Although Moravia had lost its primacy to Bohemia in the 10th century, becoming a margravate in 1029, it maintained separate musical interests.’
- ‘Any road to Austria would have to cross the Rhön mountains and a myriad of tiny margravates and bishoprics, then continue through the Bavarian forests until it reached the border.’
