History[edit]

In 1112, Deuselbach had its first documentary mention. After the French Revolution, the Rhine’s left bank, and thereby Deuselbach too, were ceded to France in 1794 and 1795. Through a law from 26 March 1798, the French abolished feudal rights in their zone of occupation. After French rule ended, the village passed in 1814 to the Kingdom of Prussia. Since 1947, it has been part of the then newly founded state of Rhineland-Palatinate. Until administrative reform in Rhineland-Palatinate in 1969, this village in the Hunsrück belonged to the Bernkastel district, whose seat was at Bernkastel-Kues. Today, Deuselbach is part of the Verbandsgemeinde of Thalfang am Erbeskopf.
