Early Origins of the Nieder family

The surname Nieder was first found in Bohemia, where the family contributed greatly to the development of an emerging nation and would later play a large role in the political conflicts of the area. The family branched into numerous houses, many of which acquired estates and manors throughout the surrounding regions, where they played significant roles in the social and political affairs.
