  Brandenburg - LoveToKnow 1911
When Gero died in 965, his mark was divided into two parts, the northern portion, lying along both banks of the middle Elbe, being called the north or old mark, and forming the nucleus of the later margraviate of Brandenburg.
He was gladly received by the king of Poland, and other neighbouring princes, welcomed by a large number of the people, and in 1348 invested with the margraviate by King Charles IV., who eagerly seized this opportunity to deal a blow at his enemy.
Louis, who then undertook the government, made peace with his neighbours, finally defeated the false Valdemar, and was recognized by the Golden Bull of 1356 as one of the seven electors.

As outlying areas tended to have great importance to the central realms of kings and princes, and they often became larger than those nearer the interior, margraves assumed quite inordinate powers over those of other counts of a realm.
The territory of the Margraviate of Meissen was extended in the 11th century up to the Neisse and later in southern direction to the Erzgebirge.
In 1423, Friedrich the Militant became the Margrave, was assigned the Duchy of Saxony-Wittenberg.

 Moravia - LoveToKnow 1911
MORAVIA (Ger., Mahren; Czech, Morava), a margraviate and crownland of Austria, bounded E. by Hungary, S. by Lower Austria, W. by Bohemia and N. by Prussian and Austrian Silesia.
Physically Moravia may be described as a mountainous plateau sloping from north to south, just in the opposite direction of the adjoining Bohemia plateau, which descends from south to north, and bordered on three sides by mountain ranges.
Towards the close of the 12th century Moravia was raised to the dignity of a margraviate, but with the proviso that it should be held as a fief of the crown of Bohemia.

 Moravia
In 1371 John divided the country among his three sons, Jobst (Jodocus) receiving the title of Ancient Margrave and Overlord; his two younger sons were also given the title of Margrave, but they were to hold their lands in fief from Jobst.
In 1464 he promised the Moravian Estates that the margraviate should never be separated from the Crown of Bohemia by sale, exchange, or mortgage.
Politically speaking the Margraviate of Moravia is an Austrian crown land, the highest administrative authority being vested in the governor at Brünn.

 Cheb
The handsome and imposing St Nicholas church was built in the 13th century and restored in 1892.
The district of Cheb was in 870 included in the new margraviate of East Franconia[?], which belonged at first to the Babenbergs, but from 906 to the counts of Vohburg, who took the title of margraves of Cheb.
By the marriage, in 1149, of Adela of Vohburg with the emperor Frederick I, Cheb came into the possession of the house of Swabia, and remained in the hands of the emperors until the 13th century.

 Fief of Viipuri at AllExperts
Margraviate of Wiburg or fief of Viipuri or Viipuri county, 1320-1534, was for some two centuries a late medieval feudal fief in the southeastern border of Finland and the entire Swedish realm, held by its chatelain, a fiefed, appointed feudal lord.
For extended periods the medieval commanders of Viipuri castle (chatelains, castellans), on the border with republic of Novgorod, did in practice function as margraves, collecting the crown's incomes from the fief in their own name and being entitled to keep them all to use for the defense of the realm's eastern border.
However, the margraviate was, almost without exception, held by descendants (or husbands of such) of their extended family until its very end, over two centuries.

 The Divine Right of the Hohenzollern
The original importance of the two border states — Brandenburg and Austria (Eastern Margraviate) — is traceable to the fact that they were the advance guard of Germany against the neighboring Slavs, whether for defensive or offensive purposes.
Even Pomerania, whose feudal lords were the margraves of Brandenburg from the time of the 12th century, had not been entirely incorporated in the kingdom of Prussia in the year 1815, and by the time the electors of Brandenburg tried to appropriate it piecemeal, it had long since ceased to be a slavic state.
In the beginning of the 15th century the Margraviate of Brandenburg belonged to the house of Luxemburg, at the head of which was Sigismund, who at the same time wielded the scepter of Imperial Germany.

 Kingdoms of Eastern Europe - Slovenia
After the collapse of the Roman Empire, Slovenia followed the same path as its neighbours, being controlled successively by the Huns (c.400-c.460), the Ostrogoths (c.460-488), undergoing Slav incursions during the sixth century before falling to the Avars until c.745.
Then the Bavarii ruled (c.745-788), followed by the Carolingian Franks (788-843), Germany (843-907), Hungary (907-955), and then back to Germany as part of Carinthia until it was established as a margraviate.
The margraviate passes to the Patriarchate of Aquileia.

 WHKMLA : History of Brandenburg-Prussia, General Observations
The history of Brandenburg is dominated by two dynasties, the Askanier Dynasty which created the Margraviate of Brandenburg, and the Zollern Dynasty (rechristened Hohenzollern Dynasty by historians of the nationalistic-romanticist 20th century) which turned Brandenburg- Prussia into a military and later also political great power.
Accounts of the History of Brandenburg-Prussia therefore tend to shift focus; in chapters dealing with the earlier history, the focus is on the two nuclei of the later great power - the Margraviate of Brandenburg and the state of the Teutonic Order, centered on East Prussia.
Chapters dealing with the 19th century focus on the history of the entire state and her central government.
