The surname Diehl was first found in Frankfurt, where the name came from humble beginnings but gained a significant reputation for its contribution to the emerging mediaeval society. It later became more prominent as many branches of the same house acquired distant estates, some in foreign countries, always elevating their social status by their great contributions to society. The family is known to have come with the Teutonic Order to Prussia; Knoghts bearing this name fought against the Poles at the decisive battle of Tannenberg.
