Saxo-Borussia was established on 16 December 1820. In 1829 Robert Schumann became a lifelong member. During the Revolutions of 1848 in the German states the corps participated in founding the Kösener Senioren-Convents-Verband . Her motto is Virtus sola bonorum corona!
In the German Empire and in the Weimar Republic Saxo-Borussia was considered “the most distinguished corps of Christianity” – a reference to the 1st Foot Guards . Wilhelm Meyer-Förster wrote a student novel and Mark Twain reported on his visit in A Tramp Abroad. Kurt Tucholsky taunted the corps with a poem. Unlike the befriended Corps Borussia Bonn, Saxo-Borussia has never been mocked by the Simplicissimus. The group was prosecuted in Nazi Germany. It dissolved on 3 July 1935 under persecution and was recreated in 1952. In 1910 and 1998 it presided the KSCV.
