Schleswig-Holstein, which is the northernmost state in western Germany, is the homeland of the proud surname Cähne. Schleswig, which was included in the empire of the Franks as the "Danemark," was a northern border protectorate against the Danish Vikings. The duchy of Holstein was settled by the German Saxons during the 6th century. The Danemark, however, was granted to the Danes by Emperor Conrad II (990-1039), and the remainder of Schleswig-Holstein's history has revolved around the political question of Danish or German control of this region. Following the dissolution of the Holy Roman Empire in 1806, the two duchies were incorporated into Denmark. However, the Congress Of Vienna in 1815 granted the Holstein and Lauenburg to the German Confederation. In 1866, Schleswig-Holstein became a Prussian province and it became a part of the German Empire after the unification of 1871. After the First World War, a part of Northern Schleswig was restored to Denmark after the majority of the population had voted for reunion with Denmark.

Cähne Early Origins



The surname Cähne was first found in Schleswig-Holstein, where the family contributed greatly to the development of an emerging nation and would later play a large role in the political conflicts of the area. The family branched into many houses, many of which acquired estates and manors throughout the surrounding regions, where they played significant roles in the social and political affairs. "Kahn" or "Kan" is a north German word meaning "skiff" or "barge."
