Office Kossenblatt

from Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The Kossenblatt office was an electoral-Brandenburg and royal-Prussian domain office based in Kossenblatt ( Oder-Spree district , Brandenburg ). The office took on a special position within the electoral Brandenburg offices, because before the transition from Lower Lusatia to Prussia in 1815, the official area lay not only in the two lordships of Brandenburg, Beeskow and Storkow, but also in Lower Lusatia, which was then Saxon. The Kossenblatt office was dissolved between 1818 and 1837 and the official villages were transferred to the Trebatsch office .


On January 18, 1736, the then Brandenburg elector and king in Prussia, Friedrich Wilhelm I, bought the small rule of Kossenblatt for 125,000 from Count Karl Friedrich Ludwig v. Barefoot. At that time, this included the castle, Vorwerk and village of Kossenblatt, Vorwerk and village of Briescht, the villages of Werder / Spree and Wiese as well as the Schlauheide and the Plattkowsche Heide with the sheep farm. From this he formed the office of Kossenblatt, which he incorporated into his rule Wusterhausen (later rule King Wusterhausen).
