Forchtel Early Origins



The surname Forchtel was first found in Bavaria, where the name Vorchtel was anciently associated with the tribal conflicts of the area. They declared allegiances to many nobles and princes of early history, lending their influence in struggles for power and status within the region. They branched into many houses, and their contributions were sought by many leaders in their search for power.
