A statistic for you I couldn't work into the article but which illustrates the degree of attrition from death and desertion by this point.

After retreating in August 1638, Görz received 13,000 men in reinforcements while at Rottweil.

A month later and his total strength including the troops Savelli had at Philippsburg had fallen to 12,000.

Can you imagine? Saxe-Breisgau? Just to make that name completely useless as a place marker.

Do you mean Upper Saxony, Lower Saxony, Electoral Saxony, Ducal Saxony, Swabian Saxony, Transylvanian Saxony...

Based on the naming conventions, it'd have been Saxe-Breisach of course.
I was thinking of Saxe-Anhalt too, and Saxe-Breisach surviving to the modern day to form its own Land.

I've just realised.

It'd be Saxe-Weimar-Breisach
Naturally.

At least the Baden-Badens and Baden-Durlachs make some sense.

And considering where this is situated in Germany plus Bernhard's family inheritance laws, you can bet that it would divide itself multiple times.
