The colorful history of Germany
provides a glimpse at the oldest origins of the Goldbach family. In the medieval era, Germany
was fragmented and inhabited by numerous Barbarian tribes who fought amongst themselves for control of the land. The ancient dukedom of Silesia
derived its name from a Germanic tribe called the Silingers, who occupied Silesia
between the 2nd and the 6th centuries.
Early Origins of the Goldbach family
The surname Goldbach was first found in Saxony
, where the name could be considered to make a major contribution to the feudal
society which became the backbone of early development of Europe. The name became prominent in local
affairs and branched into many houses which played important roles in the regional and national conflicts, as each group sought power in an ever changing territorial profile.
