On the death of Philip von Hachberg-Sausenberg in Montpellier, France, on 9th September 1503, the Hachberg-Sausenberg branch of the House of Baden dies out.

First established in 1306 as a branch of the Baden-Hachberg line, itself a branch of the main Baden line, the Hachberg-Sausenberg lands and title in Germany (Philip also had interests in France and Switzerland which passed to his daughter) is inherited by Christoph (Christopher) I von Baden, Margrave of Baden, thus returning them to the main Baden line, though not for long.

The former Hachberg-Sausenberg land that is the south west corner of Germany, centred around Müllheim, is today known as Markgräflerland (Margrave's Land).

Alamanicus is wandering his old Alemanni haunts, revisiting the places where once he used to drink, carouse, and beat up the odd Roman legionnaire or two. Things have moved on since his day, and the old Alemanni country now lies across south west Germany, French Alsace, and northern Switzerland. Cut through by the mighty Rhine, it is an area of great beauty, and a lot has happened there since Alamanicus last walked this land.
