The distinguished and ancient German surname Lichtenburg is derived from "Lichtenberg," the name of a village on the Elbe river. The place name is composed of the German elements "licht," meaning "light," and "berg," meaning "mountain."

Lichtenburg Early Origins



The surname Lichtenburg was first found in Thuringia, where the family was known for its contributions to the prosperity and culture of the emerging feudal society. The family branched into numerous houses, many of which acquired estates and manors throughout the surrounding regions in the Duchy of Saxe Coburg.
