Albert, who had married Elizabeth, daughter of Hermann III., count of Orlamiinde, after the death of his second wife in 1286, died on the 13th of November 1314.
After meeting with some success in his efforts to take possession, he was driven from Saxony, and also from his mark by Henry, and compelled to take refuge in South Germany, and when peace was made in 1142 he renounced the Saxon dukedom and received the counties of Weimar and Orlamiinde.
In early times Weimar with the surrounding district belonged to the counts of Orlamiinde, and from the end of the 10th century until 1067 it was the seat of the counts of Weimar.
After passing into the possession of the German kings and then of the rulers of Orlamiinde and of Weimar, it came into the hands of the counts of Schwarzburg in 1335.
Besides these there are the towns of Lucka, Orlamiinde and Russdorf in an exclave.
