The German state of Prussia, which reached the zenith of its power in the late 19th century, is the glorious birthplace of the distinguished surname Bethe. In the medieval era, after the fall of the Roman Empire, the German lands were inhabited by a variety of Barbarian tribes. The borders of the Barbarian kingdoms changed frequently, but the region that became known as Prussia was roughly divided between the areas of Brandenburg-Prussia, West Prussia, and East Prussia. The colorful history of West Prussia, which was nestled between Brandenburg and East Prussia on the Vistula River, provides a glimpse at the oldest origins of the Bethe family. West Prussia, is famous for its ancient cities, such as Danzig, which is renowned for its culture and fine displays of Renaissance art and architecture.

Bethe Early Origins



The surname Bethe was first found in West Prussia and Pomerelia, where the name emerged in mediaeval times as that of one of the notable families in the western region. From the 13th century onwards the surname was identified with the great social and economic evolution which made this territory a landmark contributor to the development of the nation.
