Gottwald Early Origins



The surname Gottwald was first found in Silesia, where the name could be considered to make a great early contribution to the feudal society which became the backbone of early development in Europe. The name became prominent in local affairs and branched into many houses which played important roles in savage tribal and national conflicts, each group seeking power and status in an ever changing territorial profile.
