History

According to some sources, Faust was born in Roda in 1480. The house where he was born was torn down and sold to Chicago in 1896, where it was going to be shown in the Germany-Hall of the World's Fair. The fate of the house is unknown.

Within the German Empire (1871-1918), Roda was part of the Duchy of Saxe-Altenburg.
