Early Origins of the Litzke family


The surname Litzke was first found in Brandenburg, where the name became noted for its many branches within the region, each house acquiring a status and influence which was envied and enrolled by the princes of the region. The name possibly has its origin in the city name Lietzen in Brandenburg, but is probably much older than this mediaeval town, having its roots in the ancient Slavic tribes of the Silesian and Bohemian regions. In their later history the family became a power unto themselves and were elevated to the ranks of nobility as they grew into this most influential family.
