Chassalla or Chassella is a historical term for the town Kassel in the North of Hessia. The   name   is   probably   of   Latin   origin.   The   1000-year-anniversary   of   the   city,   in   1913,   referred   to   the   documentary mention of Chasalla, where King Conrad I. (about 881-918) stayed on 18 February 913. King   Conrad   I   had   been   Duke   of   Franconia   since   906   (and   Count   in   Hessengau   at   the   same   time)   and   King   of   eastern Francia. He   was   the   eldest   son   of   Count   Conrad   (the   elder)   of   Fritzlar   from   the   house   of   the   Conradians.   In   913   he   married   the Swabian count’s daughter Cunegonde. On   18   February   913   King   Conrad   I.   stayed   in   the   fortified   court   “Chasella”   at   the   Fulda   and   signed   two   documents, which are considered the oldest known written documents in the history of the town Kassel. King Conrad I. died in Weilburg on 23 December 918 and was buried in the monastery. His reign marked the transition from the Carolingians to the Ottos. In   1913   an   outstanding   event   took   place   in   Kassel:   In   September   the   city   celebrated   its   millennial   existence.   Kassel   was a single dressed up fairground. Since Michael is originally from Franconia and Regina is born in Kassel, the name Chasella was established.
