Provostry of Berchtesgaden
PROVOSTRY OF BERCHTESGADEN
The Provostry of Berchtesgaden was established in 1559 as the secular successor state of the Abbey of Berchtesgaden with the rank of Principality. The provostry was led by a prince-provost and a chapter consisting of noble canons and vicars. In 1803 it was incorporated into Bayern. Many of the Prince-Provosts were also bishop of one or more dioceses.
