The origin of the proud surname Krause can be traced to the historic kingdom of Bohemia, which today encompasses the Czech republi c. The name is derived from the Upper German word "Kraus," meaning "curly."

Krause Early Origins



The surname Krause was first found in Bohemia, where the name was anciently associated with the tribal conflicts of the area. They declared allegiances to many nobles and princes of early history, lending their influence in struggles for power and status within the region. They branched into many houses, and their contributions were sought by many leaders in their search for power.
