    As a result of the Congress of Vienna Congress in 1816 the Siegerland was separated from the Duchy of Nassau and had to be ceded to Prussia. Thus, a demarcation was made from the Haincher height to the Kalteiche, which already in 1607 formed the border between Nassau-Dillenburg and Nassau-Siegen (certainly of little importance). When surveying and Erstvermarkung in 1835 under the letter combinations HN for Duchy of Nassau, GDBT for community Dillbrecht and on the other side KP for Kingdom of Prussia, GRDF for community Rudersdorf the consecutive number has been set. This numbering began with the tripod chair above almonds (here once three dominions collided with each other). After the Prussian-Austrian war of 1866, the Duchy of Nassau was annexed by Prussia. Thus, on both sides of this border line was Prussian territory. Since 1946, the state border between Hesse and North Rhine-Westphalia has been running here.
