Bretzenheim was a minor Principality in pre-Napoleonic Germany. It was created in 1790 for Charles Augustus of the line of Wittelsbach-Bretzenheim. Its territory in central Germany was mediatised to Hesse-Darmstadt in 1803, and its territory north of Lake Constance was mediatised to Austria in 1804.
