The Hanseatic League, or Hansa, began as a northern European trading confederation in the middle of the 13th century and continued for 300 years. Its network of alliances grew to 170 cities, protected by a powerful fleet financed by its members. The legacy of the Hansa continues with the use of its name e.g. the German airline Lufthansa (Air Hansa).
