About the Book

Though Lausanne is so near Geneva, its history, in historical times, has been widely different from that of the neighbouring town. Geneva enjoyed a modified independence from an early date, and became completely independent early in the sixteenth century. Lausanne, until nearly 300 years later, endured the domination, first of Savoy, and subsequently of Berne. The early history is obscure and full of vexed questions as well as unfamiliar names; but the central fact is that the Counts of Savoy-they were not promoted to be Dukes of Savoy until later-took possession of the Canton of Vaud, as well as of the Chablais and the lower Valais, after the death of the last of the Zaeringen, at the beginning of the thirteenth century. For the next 300 years they exercised overlordship, limited by the charters of the towns, and, in the case of Lausanne, by the jurisdiction of the Bishop-a complicated state of[2] things which the Swiss historical societies may be left to unravel.
