The Krone surname is derived from the Middle High German words "kran," or " kron," meaning "crane;" as a name, Krone most likely evolved from a nickname, perhaps for a tall, thin crane-like person.

Krone Early Origins



The surname Krone was first found in Prussia, where the name was an integral part of the feudal society which would shape modern European history. Many prominent branches of the family would strive to make this name renowned as they contributed to the social, economic and political affairs of the region.
