..the Story about 1291 and Switzerland..


The federal Letter of Alliance documents the eternal Alliance of Switzerland - the "Rütlischwur".

The Union of three Cantons Uri, Schwyz and Unterwalden.

It is dated in early August 1291 and initiates the current 1 August Swiss national Day.

This Agreement, in Latin, cites a previous similar Pact. It is currently exhibited at the Museum of the Swiss Charters of Confederation in Canton Schwyz.
