"Dit geschah zu Bunne" - This Was Done at Bonn


When the Archbishops, who as electors were among the most distinguished and powerful men in the Holy Roman Empire, issue documents here they write: ‘This was done at Bunne’. Besides their palace in Bonn, the Cologne Electors and Archbishops highly appreciate the Godesburg Castle as one of their favourite abodes while they keep losing support among the self-confident citizenry of their capital Cologne. Consequently, Siegfried of Westerburg is the first archbishop to be elected in Bonn’s Minster instead of Cologne’s Cathedral as early as 1274 (to 1297).
