Hardt Early Origins



The surname Hardt was first found in Bavaria, where the name 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.

The most important of these branches was that seated at Grabenstadt who were raised to the rank of cavaliers in 1579.
