History

the text in this section is copied from an article in Wikipedia

During the French occupation under Napoleon the district was part of the departement Donnersberg (fr.:Mont-Tonnerre). After the Congress of Vienna, the area north of the Nahe river went to the Prussian Rhine province, the biggest part however became part of the Grand Duchy of Hesse and was called Rhenish Hesse. In 1835 the district Mainz was created, when the province Rheinhessen was abolished. In 1852 the district Oppenheim was created, and took some of the area of the Mainz district; in 1938 this district was abolished again. The district became the current borders in 1969, when the districts Mainz and Bingen were merged.
