How is Ludwig I connected to Urach?
The Treaty of Nürtingen was concluded between Ludwig I and his brother, Ulrich V, in 1442. In it, they divided Württemberg between them. Ludwig received the Urach portion with areas west and south, including the Alsace and later Mömpelgard. Ludwig I made Urach his residence and began developing it into a residential city. This included expanding the palace. The former residential palace, as it exists today, therefore traces its foundations back to Count Ludwig I.
