The distinguished Austrian surname Manns is a proud sign of a rich and ancient ancestry. Austria, which was originally home to a Celtic people, was conquered by the Roman Empire in about 15 B C. Following the fall of Rome, Austria was repeatedly invaded by barbarian tribes, such as the Vandals, Visigoths, and Huns, who swept in from the east. During the 5th and 6th centuries, the Alemanni, Avars and Slavs settled Austria. The Avars were defeated in 785 by the Frankish emperor Charlemagne, who set up the East Mark, which later became known as the Österreich. Austria was ruled by the Babenburger dynasty until 1278, when they were succeeded by the Hapsburg dynasty, which ruled Austria until the 20th century.

Manns Early Origins



The surname Manns was first found in Styria, where the name could be considered to have made a great early contribution to the feudal society which became the backbone of modern Europe. The name became prominent in local affairs and branched into many houses. They played important roles in the tribal and national conflicts in which each group sought power and status in an ever changing territorial profile.
