Does anyone out there know anything about the HANSEATIC LEAGUE?
Started by my ancestors(flemish merchants)in the 16th century. Partly or solely responsible for the introduction of the pound sterling. I have spent many hours researching my ancestry via many different sites and places. My brother works at The National Archives!!
asked in History, genealogy, ancestry

Apparently it was a 12th century kind of trade union. Involving around 160 cities, a sort of Merchants association. Go into Ask.com there is a lot of information there about it.
