The German state of Saxony is the glorious birthplace of the distinguished surname Gotscha. 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 Saxony derived its name from the Germanic tribe named the Saxons, who occupied Saxony between the 2nd and the 6th centuries.

Gotscha Early Origins



The surname Gotscha was first found in Saxony, where the name Gottschalk emerged in medieval times as one of the notable families of the region. Since the 13th century the surname has been closely associated with the social and economic advancement of the region's feudal society.
