The colorful history of Germany provides a glimpse at the oldest origins of the Goldbacher 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.

Goldbacher Early Origins



The surname Goldbacher 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.
