    Land of Drahim in West Pomerania



    This little known fragment of West Pomerania was part of Poland until 1772 (while it is usually said that Poland lost West Pomerania already during the High Middle Ages):

    "Draheim (German: Starostei Draheim) or Drahim (Polish: Starostwo Drahimskie) was a starostwo (crown territory) of the Polish Kingdom. Pawned to Brandenburg-Prussia in 1657, it was directly incorporated into the Kingdom of Prussia in 1772."

    During times of the Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth, Drahim belonged to Poznań Voivodeship:

    Fragments about Drahim from the 1841 book by Leon Plater, titled "Opisanie wojewˇdztwa poznańskiego" ("Description of the [pre-1772] Poznań Voivodeship"), in Polish:

    In the 19th century, this area was part of Regierungsbezirk K÷slin (Departament Koźliński, Koźlin was archaic Polish name for K÷slin; while now the city is called Koszalin):
