Friedrich Christoph Dahlmann

Dahlmann, Friedrich Christoph (frēˈdrĭkh krĭsˈtôf dälˈmän) [key], 1785–1860, German historian. He was dismissed from his professorship at Göttingen for protesting (1837) the abrogation of the constitution by King Ernest Augustus of Hanover. He later taught at Bonn, and he was prominent in the Frankfurt Parliament (1848–49). His Quellenkunde der deutschen Geschichte [sources of German history] (1830), enlarged in many subsequent editions, is an indispensable aid to the study of German history.
