Geiselwind

Geiselwind is a market town with 2323 inhabitants in Lower Franconia (Bavaria) in the district of Kitzingen in Germany.Autotranslaters may render its name into English as "hostage wind". However, in this case, "Geisel" means a special form of a whip, not a hostage.GeographyGeiselwind is today in the governmental district of Lower Franconia (Würzburg). Up to the administrative reform Geiselwind still belonged to the governmental district of Middle Franconia. On the edge of the town area is the Dreifrankenstein ("Three Franconia Stone"), where the Bavarian provinces of Lower Franconia and Middle Franconia and Upper Franconia all meet.To Geiselwind these areas belong: Burggrub, Dürrnbuch, Ebersbrunn, Füttersee, Geiselwind, Gräfenneuses, Holzberndorf, Ilmenau, Langenberg, Rehweiler, Wasserberndorf, Freihaslach.HistoryThe name Geiselwind can be dated to the 8th century AD. At this time by decree of the German emperor, Wends were settled in the Frankish area.Geiselwind market in today's Lower Franconia belonged to the sovereign Grafschaft of Schwarzenberg.
