  1. Hesse

    Hesse or Hessia is both a cultural region of Germany and the name of an individual German state. ⁕The cultural region of Hesse includes both the State of Hesse and the area known as Rhenish Hesse in the neighbouring Rhineland-Palatinate state. The oldest city of the cultural region of Hesse, Mainz, is in Rhenish Hesse. ⁕The State of Hesse is part of the larger cultural region. It has an area of 21,110 km² and just over six million inhabitants. The capital is Wiesbaden. Hessen's largest city is Frankfurt am Main. The English name "Hesse" comes from the Hessian dialect. The variant "Hessia" comes from the medieval latin Hassia. The German term Hessen is used by the European Commission because their policy is to leave regional names untranslated. The term "Hesse" ultimately derives from a Germanic tribe called the Chatti, who settled in the region in the first century B.C. An inhabitant of Hesse is called a Hessian.

Military Dictionary and Gazetteer

  1. hesse

    A territory in Western Germany, the seat of the Catti; formed part of the empire of Charlemagne; from the rulers of it in his time the present are descended. It was joined to Thuringia till about 1263, when Henry I. became landgrave of Hesse. The most remarkable of his successors was Philip, who signed the Augsburg Confession in 1530, and the League of Smalcald in 1531. At his death Hesse was divided in Hesse-Cassel and Hesse-Darmstadt, and in 1803 the former became an electorate, and the latter a grand duchy. Hesse-Cassel was incorporated with Prussia in 1866, and Hesse-Darmstadt became a part of the North German Confederation in 1867, and as such it took part in the Franco-Prussian war in 1870.

Examples of Hesse in a Sentence

  1. Theodor Weimer:

    Transformational transactions, whereby we thereafter no longer hold majority, or our headquarters is no longer in Hesse, are not an option for us.

  2. Germany Economy Minister Sigmar Gabriel:

    What's not going to happen is to follow a 'not-in-my-back yard' principle, that won't work. We'll try to use existing routes and underground cables. What we can't do is to move routes to Hesse and Baden-Wuerttenberg.

  3. Gero Neugebauer:

    The The Cold War paranoia breaking out in Thuringia is bizarre - you get a feeling it's a state bordering Russia rather than Hesse and that Soviet tanks are ready to roll in, the reality is that the Left taking control of a state is a big step toward more German unity.

  4. Deodatta V. Shenai-Khatkhate:

    One of the genius writers of 20th century, Hermann Hesse, Nobel Laureate and my most favorite author, wrote: "Most people...are like a falling leaf that drifts and turns in the air, flutters, and falls to the ground. But a few others are like stars which travel one defined path: no wind reaches them, they have within themselves their guide and path." I like this quote, because it is so enlightening and powerful. It's also a constant reminder that you are the Star, and you must maintain your character - no matter what others say or do. Also not to forget that the Star does have ability to turn into Supernova, which brightens the Universe with such a powerful light that can only come from millions of Suns. Always strive to be that shining Star, and ultimately Supernova, to illuminate the world.

  5. Deodatta V. Shenai-Khatkhate:

    Uno de los escritores de genio del siglo 20, Hesse Hermann, premio Nobel y mi autor favorito, escribió: "La mayoría de la gente ... son como una hoja que cae que se desplaza y gira en el aire, palpitaciones, y cae al suelo, pero. Algunos otros son estrellas como el que viajan una ruta definida: no hay viento les alcanza, tienen dentro de sí mismos su guía y camino ". Me gusta esta cita, porque es muy instructivo y de gran alcance. También es un recordatorio constante de que usted es la estrella, y usted tiene que mantener su carácter - no importa lo que otros digan o hagan. También no hay que olvidar que la estrella tiene capacidad de convertirse en supernova, que ilumina el universo con una luz tan potente que sólo puede venir de millones de soles. Siempre nos esforzamos por ser esa estrella, y en última instancia supernova, brilla para iluminar el mundo.
