            which associated themselves for the protection and

            1260, and was maintained for nearly four hundred years. At
            one time the league comprised eighty-five cities. Its
            remnants, L[81]beck, Hamburg, and Bremen, are {free
            cities}, and are still frequently called Hanse towns.
