High Quality Content by WIKIPEDIA articles! The Bishopric of Liege
or Prince-Bishopric of Liege was a state of the Holy Roman Empire
in the Low Countries in present Belgium. It belonged from 1500 on
to the Lower Rhenish-Westphalian Circle. It was headed by the
Prince-Bishop of Liege. Its territory included most of the present
Belgian provinces of Liege and Limburg, and some exclaves in other
parts of Belgium and the Netherlands. The capital was Liege (which,
as the bishopric, is Luttich in German and Luik in Dutch). The
boundaries of the original diocese were those of the Civitas
Tungrorum, the capital of which was Tongeren, northwest of Liege.
The bishopric of Tongeren originally formed part of the dioceses of
Trier and Cologne. After the first half of the fourth century, the
bishopric of Tongeren received autonomous organization.
