Canton of Lucerne in the Swiss Confederation (1332-1848)

The monastery of St. Leodegar im Gough was founded at the beginning of the 8th century. A village grew up around the bridge over the Rois River leading to the monastery. The year of foundation of Lucerne is considered to be 1178, when this settlement ceased to be completely dependent on the monastery.

In 1220, the Saint Gotthard Pass was opened, which served as an impetus for the development of the city. A fortress wall with towers was erected.

In the 14th century, as self-government developed, Lucerne became a city-state, one of the founders of the Old Swiss Confederation.

At the end of the 18th century, power in the city belonged to patrician families.

In 1843, Lucerne led the Sonderbund (unification of Catholic cantons), which was defeated in 1847. In 1848, residents voted against the federal constitution, greatly weakening the city's political influence.
