Vaduz is the capital of Liechtenstein and also the seat of the national parliament. |
The town, which is located along the Rhine River, has 5,450 residents. Although Vaduz is the best-known town
in the principality internationally, it is not the largest; neighbouring Schaan has a larger population.
Vaduz is mentioned in historic 12th-century manuscripts as Faduzes. In 1322 a mention of the castle is made
which was sacked by the Swiss in 1499 during the Swabian War. The entire town was also destroyed.
In the 17th century the Liechtenstein family was seeking a seat in the Imperial diet, the Reichstag. However,
since they did not hold any territory that was directly under the Imperial throne,
they were unable to meet the primary requirement to qualify.
