Geography[edit]

I can't really tell whether the elevation (Bodenerhebung) is called by the proper name "Platte" or whether this is just the author's description of this particular geographic feature. Probably it's a description, as evidenced by the "auf dieser Platte" later. I can't google any non-Wikipedia mirrors for much mentioning of "Spreeplatte". I think I would try to rewrite this section from scratch if you can find sources for it, might be easier than imagining what is meant (it's hard for me without a map).

I don't know why I'm talking about the parts you haven't translated yet. Whatever. I think the de:Baltischer Landrücken story is slightly different, but the explanation is almost impossible to understand without a good map. I think it says that only an insignificant part of the Baltic land ridge (which is the land ridge to the north of Bbg) extends into Brandenburg, perhaps (?) the part that belongs to the de:Mecklenburgische Seenplatte. I don't get why the two ridges define the area, yet the northern one is insignificant. Perhaps I should go to bed. Kusma (討論) 23:20, 30 November 2006 (UTC)
Thanks for looking into it, Kusma. If you think the geography section is not informative in its current form, feel free to remove it until someone can clarify the terminology. Olessi 02:53, 12 December 2006 (UTC)

Small Edit[edit]

The leader of Brandenburg-Prussia was originally known as the King 'in' Prussia, since there could not be a kingship in the Holy Roman Empire. Since Prussia fell outside the HRE, he could be a king there but not in Brandenburg. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by 139.139.33.12 (talk) 15:05, 29 January 2007 (UTC).
