The colorful history of the German region of Silesia provides the setting for oldest origins of the Kärgel family surname. The name Kärgel comes from the Middle High German word "karc," meaning "cunning," or "sly." As such, the surname was most likely originally a nickname which later became a surname.

Kärgel Early Origins



The surname Kärgel was first found in Silesia, where this family made important contributions toward the development of this district from ancient times. Always prominent in social and political affairs, the family formed alliances with other families within the Feudal System and the nation. Ancient chronicles first mention Heinczel Kergel of Prague (c.1321,) Nicolaus Karger of Olmuetz (c.1361,) and Wigund Karge of Hessen (c.1265).
