The country or principality of Liechtenstein came into being in 814. It consisted of the sub country of Lower Rhaetia. Since the establishment of its borders in 1434, it has not been altered. The place would later be annexed by the Carolingian Empire and segregated into countships.
Vaduz was formed in 1342 as a county. It was a part of the Werdenberg county. The country was attacked by the Austrians and Swedes during the course of the Thirty Years’ War (1618-1648).
The 17th century saw it being troubled by a deadly plague and witch hunts. Liechtenstein was recognized as a sovereign state in 1806 after joining Napoleon’s Confederation of the Rhine.
The country became part of the German Confederation in 1866. Two years later, the confederation collapsed. The country subsequently disbanded its army and announced permanent neutrality. This was honored in World War I and II. The decades after World War II saw its economy boom.
