In 15 AD, the Romans conquered the area now called Vorarlberg and built the city Brigantium on the territory of the present state capital Bregenz as an important military base and Constance harbor.
Around 260 the invasion of the Alemanni began, then from about 450 they settled here too. With the Alemanni, the area came to the Frankish Empire, 843 to the East Frankish Empire. As heirs of Udalrichinger, which have been Carolingian Count in the Lake Constance region, the Counts of Montfort gained the rule in the area of Bludenz, Bregenz and Feldkirch in 1200.
