Palatinate ~ CoA Grunge Flag (1356 - 1803) by Undevicesimus Palatinate ~ CoA Grunge Flag (1356 - 1803) by Undevicesimus
The Electoral Palatinate (German: Kurpfalz) was one of the electoral member states of the Holy Roman Empire. Established in the late eleventh century, its electoral dignity and strategic position on the Rhine made it one of the most important imperial states. The Palatinate was mauled by Napoleonic France in 1803 and ceased to exist with the dissolution of the Holy Roman Empire in 1806.

The Palatine coat of arms originally consisted of only a black field with a gold lion, a design which dates back to the year 1156, when Conrad of Hohenstaufen became count palatine. The coat of arms was eventually quartered with that of the House of Wittelsbach, which inherited the Palatinate in the mid fourteenth century.

Oh thanks^^ But I know also some french songs that are beautiful, especially when french women sing.
I´d say every culture has its own kind of beautiful music.

True!

 There's a great female version of the revolutionary/Napoleonic anthem "Chant du Départ" on youtube, check it out if you have time: www.youtube.com/watch?v=RgcSuN…

Yes I know this video, she sings so awesome! I have a french friend, and we exchange a lot
of our cultures. The old times where German and French culture are enemies are long over,
today we can enjoy both together :)
