Holbein History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms



Early Origins of the Holbein family


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.
