The Hanseatic League was formed in the 13th century by a group of merchants in northern Europe to protect their trading interests and rights, using their own laws and armies. It lasted about 300 years.
The League has been reformed in modern times, open to all former members, to promote cultural and social ties as well as economic.
It seemed a good topic for collection, either the modern or the old members, but up till now I have very few cards. Part of the reason may be that it seems quite difficult to find a definitive list of members.
