The Nordostenland League, known in German as the Nordostenland Bund, was a confederation of Swiss colonies in the Nordostenland region, collectively associated and dependent on the Swiss Confederacy.


Colonial Cantons

The colonial cantons consist of the original members of the league, and all other colonial territories that have since joined the league. Each colonial canton is administered by its respective European canton. The founding cantons (Urkantone) were:

  • Waldbourg (Bern), founding canton named in the Federal Charter of 1553.
  • Heiligzunft (Freiburg), founding canton named in the Federal Charter of 1553.
  • Bundsylvania (Unterwalden), founding canton named in the Federal Charter of 1553.

Additional cantons added to the league by 1564:

  • Tellsburg (Uri), canton since 1556.
  • Landsburg (Schwyz), canton since 1556.
  • Gundeldingen (Luzern), canton since 1563.

Cantons created in the aftermath of the Second Burgundian War, or during the late sixteenth century.

  • Bannerschatz (Vaud), canton since 1565.
  • Hohenzähring (Solothurn), canton since 1566.
  • Höhrohnen (Zug), canton since 1570.
