>> Duchy of Saxe-Altenburg.
Saxe-Altenburg was one of the Saxon duchies (Saxe-Weimar-Eisenach, Saxe-Coburg and Gotha, Saxe-Meiningen) held by the Ernestine branch of the Wettin dynasty.
The duchy separated from the Burgraviate of Altenburg, which belonged to the House of Saxe-Meissen, by a partition treaty of 1485. Its capital was Altenburg. Altenburg was its own state, with a vote in the diet, for much of the 17th century until the extinction of its ruling line in 1672, when it was inherited by the Duke of Saxe-Gotha, who married the heiress. It remained part of Saxe-Gotha-Altenburg until the extinction of that house in 1825 , when Gotha and Altenburg were split up, with Gotha going to the Duke of Saxe-Coburg-Saalfeld and Altenburg to the Duke of Saxe-Hildburghausen, who in exchange gave up Hildburghausen to the Duke of Saxe-Meiningen.
The duchy became a separate state in 1826.
This family ruled in the duchy until the end of the monarchies in 1918.
