Division of space

According to data from the State Statistical Office , as of 2014.


The early history of Satteldorf was shaped by the manorial power and lower jurisdiction of various noble families. The question of the jurisdiction of the high jurisdiction was disputed several times up to the year 1700, but in the end the Margraves of Ansbach , who also exercised the state rule , were able to prevail. In 1806, Satteldorf fell to the Kingdom of Bavaria for four years . On the basis of the border treaty of 1810 , the community came to the Kingdom of Württemberg in 1810 and was subordinated to the Crailsheim District Office. During the district reform during the Nazi era in Württemberg , Satteldorf came to the newly established Crailsheim district in 1938 . From 1945 to 1952, Satteldorf belonged to the state of Württemberg-Baden , which was founded in the American occupation zone in 1945 . In 1973 the district reform took place in Baden-Württemberg , when Satteldorf became part of the Schwäbisch Hall district. On January 1, 1974, as part of the regional reform in Baden-Württemberg , Satteldorf merged with the neighboring communities of Ellrichshausen and Gröningen, which were independent until then, to form today's community.
