Holbein Early Origins



The surname Holbein was first found in Austria, where the name became noted for its many branches in the region, each house acquiring a status and influence which was envied by the princes of the region. They held a family seat at Holbeinsberg and became nobles of the Holy Roman Empire in 1612. In their later history the name became a power unto themselves and were elevated to the ranks of nobility as they grew into this most influential family.
