Visselhövede belonged to the [[Bishopric of Verden|Prince-Bishopric of Verden]], established in 1180. In 1648 the Prince-Bishopric was transformed into the [[Principality of Verden]], which was first ruled in [[personal union]] by the Swedish Crown - interrupted by a Danish occupation (1712-1715) - and from 1715 on by the [[House of Hanover|Hanoverian]] Crown. The [[Kingdom of Hanover]] incorporated the Principality in a [[real union]] and the Princely territory, including Visselhövede, became part of the new [[Stade (region)|Stade Region]], established in 1823.
