Rhenania uses the colors "blue-white-red" with golden percussion . In addition, a dark blue hat with a white-red border and white piping is worn. Like all SC Corps in Heidelberg, Rhenania does not have a fox band, the foxes only wear hats, but with a blue, white and blue border.

The oldest reliably verifiable Rhenania in Heidelberg (Rhenania I) was donated on July 23, 1802 by members of the Rhenania Gießen. It was based on a country team and agitated against the Masonic-influenced student orders that had existed since the second half of the 18th century , but was infiltrated around 1804 by members of the Heidelberg Order of Constantists .

In 1803, Rhenania and Franko-Badenia, founded in 1803, joined forces to form a senior citizens' convent (SC) and agreed on the oldest surviving Heidelberg SC-Comment . After a conflict between the student body and the military in July 1804, both played a key role in the student body moving to Neuenheim . In December 1804 there were tumultuous clashes between the Heidelberg Renoncen and the Constantists. As a result of investigations by the academic authorities, both country teams disbanded in the spring of 1805. On May 19, 1805, three Rhenans (Morgenstern, Wenz, Bayer) participated in the foundation of the Landsmannschaft Palatia (I). From the remnants of the old Rhenania, the two country teams of the Upper Rhine (colors: red-blue-white with silver ) and Lower Rhine ( red-blue-white with gold ) were formed in August of that year .

After the reorganization of the university under Elector / Grand Duke Karl Friedrich von Baden , numerous foreign students moved in from 1805, who founded new, partly short-lived compatriots (Suevia, Guestphalia, Curonia, Vandalia, Hannovera , Holsatia, Hanseatia, Helvetia, Saxo-Borussia and others). In 1806 they agreed a new comment that assigned fixed recruiting cantons to the individual country teams. The division was based on the demarcation of the Peace of Lunéville (1801) and the Peace of Pressburg (1805). The Lower Rhine received Hessen-Darmstadt, Kurhessen, Nassau, Waldeck and the Thuringian states. Its district bordered in the north on the Duchy of Berg, the Duchy of Westphalia, Paderborn, Göttingische and Eichsfeld, in the east on Saxony and Würzburg, in the south on Wertheim, Leiningen, Erbach and the Lower Palatinate and in the west on the Rhine. The Upper Rhine received France including the former German departments on the left of the Rhine, Baden with the exception of the upper principality on Lake Constance and the Baden possessions in Swabia, Switzerland and Franconia, as far as it did not belong to Bavaria.

When the Heidelberger SC split up in 1810, the term corps was first used for a group of the local compatriots, including the Niederrheiner, who later returned to the uniform name Rhenania and probably dissolved soon after the wars of liberation.

In 1818 the Corps Hassia I was founded, which two years later was transformed into Rhenania II. In the minutes of the foundation it was explicitly stated that one sees itself as a continuation of Rhenania from 1802. The phase of Rhenania II falls in the politically heated period of Vormärz . Its members included numerous liberals from Baden and the Palatinate, such as Friedrich Wilhelm Knoebel , Ludwig Frey (both participants in the Hambach Festival ), Friedrich Hecker (leader of the revolution in Baden) and Joseph Martin Reichard (president of the provisional government of the Palatinate). As a result of the events surrounding the storm in prison and the move of the Heidelberg student body to Frankenthal (after differences with the Heidelberg Museum Society over the membership status of students, August 14, 1828), a three-year disrepute was issued against the university, which the SC withdrew a little later. Rhenania II existed until November 3, 1833.

In their place, members of Hassia II, founded in 1829, donated the Corps Rhenania III (until 1842) in July 1836.

In November 1838 foreign corps students, namely members of Nassovia Göttingen, founded the Corps Nassovia II, which recruited its offspring primarily from the grammar school in Weilburg . In addition to Nassovia Göttingen, Nassovia entered into closer relations with the two other Nassau "Landescorps" Hasso-Nassovia Marburg and Nassovia Würzburg, but also maintained a lively exchange with the Corps Rhenania in Bonn.

The year of the revolution, 1849, also became the founding year of the Rhenania IV, which still exists today. In a deliberate departure from the small German states , the Nassovia activists dissolved the corps on January 15, 1849 and founded a new Rhenania (IV) on the same day. The constitution, motto (“Virtuti semper corona!”) And Nassovia tradition were adopted. The catchment area expanded over the whole of Germany in the following years. The members of the corps also included students from other European countries and from overseas (Switzerland, Greece, England, the United States, Canada and South Africa). As a member of the Heidelberger SC, the Corps Rhenania has belonged to the Kösener Senioren-Convents-Verband (KSCV) founded in 1848 . In 1872 Rhenania was the presiding suburb corps and also provided Kösener suburb speakers in 1868 and 1877.

The time of the empire is considered to be the "heyday" of corps students. In contrast to the SC Corps Saxo-Borussia, Guestphalia and Vandalia, in whose old rulers East Elbian, Hanoverian and Mecklenburg large agrarians and civil servants dominated, Rhenania developed into a corps of large-scale industry and capital with recruiting focuses in the Rhine-Ruhr area, in Frankfurt, Hamburg and in the central German industrial area. Rhenania was one of the corps that were classified as "particularly exclusive".

In 1875, for the first time, printed "corpschroniken" (semester reports) were sent to the external members (old men). In 1882 the last living old gentlemen of Rhenania II recognized the existing corps as the legal successor to the old Rhenania of 1802/20. Still living members of Rhenania III and Nassovia II were taken over into the corps.

In 1886, Rhenane Emil Hartwich (1843–1886, district judge in Düsseldorf) fell in a duel with Armand Léon Baron von Ardenne . Theodor Fontane used the affair as a template for his novel " Effi Briest ".

Active operations were discontinued from 1914 to 1919 during the First World War. The corps was hardly affected by the politicization of the student body in the early days of the Weimar Republic. The Heidelberger SC maintained its self-chosen isolation and largely sealed itself off from influences from the rest of the student body.

The seizure of power by the National Socialists initially had just as little influence on the corps operations. However, the implementation of the Aryan provisions according to the guidelines of the General German Arms Ring in the spring of 1934 was carried out. On September 8, 1935, the exclusion of the KSCV from the "Community of Student Associations" by the head of the Reich Chancellery, Hans Heinrich Lammers, initiated the dissolution of the association. After its end, the Corps Rhenania also decided to suspend it. Participation in the Heidelberger SC comradeship " Axel Schaffeld " was restrained, limited to financial contributions and was discontinued at the end of the war in 1945. There were no personal and organizational interfaces between comradeship and corps as in other university towns.

The celebration of the 100th foundation festival by the old rulers took place in 1949 in a framework appropriate to the circumstances of the time. In the same year, the “Rhinelander Circle”, which was sponsored by the Heidelberger Rhenanen Association, was formed, which in part continued the forms of the earlier corps, but also sought new approaches for contemporary student coexistence. On May 3, 1951, the old rulers decided to integrate the Rhinelander Circle into the Corps and thus its reconstitution. In the 1950s, Rhenania was the initiator of the establishment of the Heidelberg Interest Group (HIG), the special purpose association of local corporations. After a separate agreement between the SC and the university, it broke with the HIG in 1958. Since then the SC has gone its own way.

In 2011 the Merian travel magazine portrayed the Corps in its Heidelberg edition.

External relations

In the 1870s and 1880s, Rhenania pursued a lively relationship policy and established official relationships with numerous corps in other university cities up to the First World War. a. in Bonn, Gießen, Marburg, Freiburg, Tübingen, Würzburg, Munich, Jena, Leipzig, Halle, Breslau, Göttingen, Berlin, Strasbourg and Zurich. Since the corps did not want to commit itself to a certain direction within the association, stagnation occurred from 1900 and after the First World War a real isolation that could only be overcome shortly before the suspension. Today the Corps maintains friendly relationships with the Corps Suevia Freiburg , Hasso-Nassovia , Nassovia Würzburg and Tigurinia .

Corp houses

After the Corps had gekneipt in changing Heidelberger inns (u. A. In Seppl , most recently at the inn vineyard at the market), in 1882 the purchase of the baroque town house in the main street 231, formerly owned by the theologian Carl Daub and his son- Wilhelm theophoric name Dittenberger found had, as a corporation and the establishment of the "Rheinländische Gesellschaft AG" as the carrier.

When the old house no longer satisfied the changed need for representation, it was torn down and the present Corphaus was built between 1906 and 1909 according to plans by the royal Bavarian court building councilor Eugen Drollinger (Munich) with a mixture of neo-baroque and art nouveau elements. It is the only Art Nouveau building on Heidelberg's main street. At the same time, the house at Neckarmünzgasse 14, located behind the garden, was purchased and converted into a student residence.
