Marktheidenfeld district court

from Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The Marktheidenfeld district court was an older Bavarian district court that existed from 1840 to 1879 and was based in Marktheidenfeld in what is now the Main-Spessart district . In the Kingdom of Bavaria , the regional courts were judicial and administrative authorities, which were replaced in administrative matters by the district offices in 1862 and in legal matters by the local courts in 1879 .


In 1804, in the course of the administrative restructuring of Bavaria, the Homburg district court with its seat in Marktheidenfeld was established. After the establishment of the Kingdom of Bavaria, this was added to the Main District .

In 1840 the Homburg district court was renamed Marktheidenfeld district court after its seat.
