from Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The Taubergau was a medieval district in the Taubergrund in north-eastern Baden-Württemberg . The Gau included, among other things, today's places Tauberbischofsheim , Bad Mergentheim , Weikersheim and Lauda-Königshofen . The seat of the count was probably Mergentheim Castle , but Ingersheim was also an important place.

The Taubergau was one of the largest districts in the Duchy of Franconia . Due to its size, it was divided into an "upper" and a "lower Taubergau" at the level of Lauda and Tauberbischofsheim.
