Anhalt-Bernburg was a German principality whose capital was Bernburg, and existed until 1863. The principality was created in 1252 when the Principality of Anhalt was partitioned between Anhalt-Aschersleben, Anhalt-Bernburg and Anhalt-Zerbst. After the ruling family became extinct in 1468, Anhalt-Bernburg was merged with Anhalt-Zerbst. The latter was divided in 1603 among the lines of Anhalt-Dessau, Anhalt-Köthen, Anhalt-Plötzkau, Anhalt-Bernburg and Anhalt-Zerbst. In 1635 the line of Anhalt-Harzgerode, which existed to 1709, was separated from Anhalt-Bernburg. In 1718 the Principality of Anhalt-Bernburg-Schaumburg-Hoym was created, and was reunited with Anhalt-Bernburg in 1812. In 1847 Anhalt-Bernburg inherited the Principality of Anhalt-Köthen. After the death of the last Prince of Anhalt-Bernburg, the principality was merged with Anhalt-Dessau.
