Chronologie universelle des souverains et chefs d'Etat, 1961:p. 88-89 (Brunswick, former duchy of Lower Saxony; formed as a countship in 955, became duchy 1235; in 1404 was divided, the chief parts being Wolfenbüttel and Brunswick-Lunebourg; Wolfenbüttel was ruled 1404-1634 by house of Liguria, 1634-1735 by house of Lüneburg, 1735-1885 by house of Bevern (except 1807-1813 when it was in Napoleonic Kingdom of Westphalia), 1885-1918 regency, 1918 incorporated into republic of Saxony; Brunswick-Lunebourg, on the other hand, was ruled by house of Liguria (but different members from the Ligurian rulers of Wolfenbïttel) from 1404 to 1648, when it passed to Brunswick-Calenberg and Brunswick-Zelle) [Saillot, like all lists of dynasties and rulers, is inaccurate or misleading regarding this complex situation; as an aid to determining entry of publications, read as necessary in Sante, cited above])
