The Corps Borussia Bonn is a German Student Corps at the University of Bonn.

History

Borussia was established on 22 December 1821 and joined the Kösener Senioren-Convents-Verband (KSCV) in 1856. It is the corps of the House of Hohenzollern and – along with others – Prussian nobility. Its motto is Virtus fidesque bonorum corona! (Bravery and loyalty of the crown.)

Karl Marx fought a duel with a Borrussia Korps member in August 1836.[1]

In 1864 and 1883 Borussia headed the KSCV. Notwithstanding some members of the Nazi Party it refused to expel Jews and dissolved in 1935. It restituted herself in 1949.
