Early Origins of the Adelsheims family
The surname Adelsheims was first found in Wuerttemberg, where the name was closely identified in early mediaeval times with the feudal society which would become prominent throughout European history. A Phillip von Adelsheim participated in a jousting tournament at Merseburg, seat of the Saxon ruling families, in 968. Poppo von Dueren built a castle named Adelsheim near Mosbach after 1298, and took the name for his family in 1323. They possessed extensive estates in the Lower Main region, their baronial seat formerly existing in the grand duchy of Baden. The name would later emerge as a noble family with great influence, having many distinguished branches, and would become noted for its involvement in social, economic and political affairs.
