Schleswig was under a provisional government at Kiel 1848 - 25 Aug 1849 (see under German states) and 25 Aug 1849 - 13 Jul 1850 under a Prussian-Danish state administration. Heligoland island (see under Germany) was also part of Schleswig until 5 Sep 1807.

Holstein (Holsten) Amter


Before 1864, the Duchy of Holstein
(Danish: Holsten) was a complicated administrative patchwork. There were  counties which belonged to Holstein, but in between them, were Danish enclaves (kongerigske enklaver). There were also enclaves belonging to the Bishopric of Lübeck, the County (from 1777, Duchy) of Oldenburg and the Free City of Hamburg. From 9 Jun 1815 to 1864, the Duchy of Lauenburg (which itsef contained enclaves of the Duchy of Oldenburg, Hamburg and the Duchy of Mecklenburg-Strelitz) was in personal union with Denmark. Lauenburg was annexed by Germany/Prussia on 24 Jan 1867 as part of its Schleswig-Holstein province. Holstein was under the Provisional government at Kiel 24 Mar 1848 - 22 Oct 1848 (see under German states) and 22 Oct 1848 - 1 Mar 1852 administered by the German Confederation.
