History

Letzia was first established as Sovereign Duchy within the Holy Roman Empire in the Late 11th century. Rudolph of Alzenau (Rudolph I) was granted the Duchy as a reward for his participation in the First Crusade. The Duchy of Letzia later expanded, merging with the Saxon Duchy of Stägeln, forming the Grand Duchy of Letzia in 1422.

Culture

Letzia is a strongly nationalistic and religious nation, it has remained generally Lutheran since the late 16th century.
