About Basel elsewhere
"After Basel joined the Swiss Confederation in 1501, it became a Protestant region."
"Their pact of mutual assistance is seen as the origin of the Swiss Confederation, and their struggles against the Habsburgs is idealised in the familiar legend of William Tell. Encouraged by early successes, the Swiss gradually acquired a taste for territorial expansion themselves and gained independence from the Holy Roman Emperor Maximilian I in 1499."
"In 1501 Basel de facto separated from the Holy Roman Empire and joined the Swiss Confederation as 11th canton,  and began the construction of the city council building."
"The death of the Habsburg ruler Rudolf I in AD 1291 led to the formation of the Swiss Confederation."
"The Swiss Confederation (abbreviated in Latin to " CH ") dates back to 1291, when Alpine peasants formed an alliance to defend themselves against the Hapsburgs."
"During the sixteenth century, the Swiss Confederation was composed of thirteen self-governed states."
"At the battle of Morgarten in 1315 the Swiss defeated the Hapsburg army and secured quasi-independence within the German Empire as the Swiss Confederation."
