The Land of Wursten, an autonomous peasants' republic including Misselwarden, had long been claimed by the Prince-Archbishopric of Bremen until 1524, when it could be definitely be subjected. In 1648 the Prince-Archbishopric was transformed into the Duchy of Bremen, which was first ruled in personal union by the Swedish and from 1715 on by the Hanoverian Crown. In 1823 the Duchy was abolished and its territory became part of the Stade Region.
