The German surname Bansher emerged in the lands that formed the powerful German state of Prussia
, which at one time was an immense German territory that stretched from France and the Low Countries to the Baltic sea and Poland. After the fall of the Roman Empire
, the German territories were inhabited by a variety of Barbarian tribes. The borders of the Barbarian kingdoms changed frequently, but the region that became known as Prussia
was roughly divided between the areas of Brandenburg-Prussia
, West Prussia
, and East Prussia
. West Prussia, where the distinguished surname Bansher was born, was nestled between Brandenburg and East Prussia
on the Vistula River. It is famous for its ancient cities, such as Danzig, which is renowned for its culture and fine displays of Renaissance
art and architecture.
