In 1848 the "1. Angler Gueter-Distrikt" ("1st estate district of Angeln") was
not very large, about 15 km from the coast of the Baltic Sea to the west.
Intersting: the "2. Angler Gueter-Distrikt" consisted of the parts, two large
ones in the area belonging to modern Danmark, one small area halfway between
Flensburg and the North Sea.

There probably were no definite boundaries, but would cities of

Flensburg and Schleswig are not part of Angeln.

Angeln was/is part of Schleswig.
