Franconia's Reputation in Aachen
Posted by Manfred Hofmann on 2019-04-01 08:34:28
Since the napoleonic"Flurbereinigung" (land consolidation) about 200 years ago, the largest part of Franconia is ruled by "Bavaria". While other large artificial federal states in Germany use "hyphen-names" to show, that there live different people with different culture in that states, the federal state "Bavaria" does not so. Bavarians do not want to be hosest an are proud of it. They call it "mia san hund" (we are dogs).
That is the reason, the "Bayerische Rundfunk" (bavarian broadcasting corporation under public law) with an annual budget of more than 1,000,000,000 Euro does not inform the rest of Germany about Franconia.
The term "Bayern" (Bavaria) has two meanings:

1. "Staatsbayern" (the name of the federals state) and
2. "Stammesbayern" (people and region with bavarian culture), the south of the Federalstate of Bavaria.

Most Germans do not know that!
