History
Minden was first mentioned in 798, when Charles the Great (Charlemagne) held a convention at the place.

In the following centuries Minden became a cultural centre of the region. The marriage of Henry the Lion took place in the cathedral of Minden (1168). Minden was a member of the Hanseatic League and capital of the Bishopric of Minden, a principality of the Holy Roman Empire.

After the Peace of Westphalia in 1648 the state was annexed by Brandenburg.

During the Seven Years" War, the Battle of Minden was fought nearby. This British victory is recalled in the British Army"s Queen"s Division maintaining the "Minden Band".
