There are many boroughs of Slavic origin in the city: Berlin-Karow, Berlin-Malchow, Berlin-Pankow, Berlin-Spandau (earlier: Spandow), Berlin-Gatow, Berlin-Kladow, Berlin-Steglitz, Berlin-Lankwitz, Berlin-Britz, Berlin-Buckow, Berlin-Rudow, Berlin-Alt-Treptow, Berlin-Schmöckwitz, Berlin-Marzahn, Berlin-Buch, and Berlin-Köpenick.Since the Ber- at the beginning sounds like the German word Bär (bear), a bear appears in the coat of arms of the city. The first written records of towns in the area of present-day Berlin date from the late 12th century.
In 1709, Berlin merged with the four cities of Cölln, Friedrichswerder, Friedrichstadt and Dorotheenstadt under the name Berlin, "Haupt- und Residenzstadt Berlin".In 1701, the dual state formed the Kingdom of Prussia, as Frederick III, Elector of Brandenburg, crowned himself as king Frederick I in Prussia.Berlin became the capital of the new Kingdom, replacing Königsberg.This protest was not successful and the citizenry lost many of its political and economic privileges.
After the royal palace was finished in 1451, it gradually came into use.In 1861, neighbouring suburbs including Wedding, Moabit and several others were incorporated into Berlin.
