A multitude of prestigious family names, such as the surname Reinhart, were formed in the lands which became the modern state of Silesia. In the medieval era, Germany was fragmented and inhabited by numerous barbarian tribes, who fought amongst themselves for control of the land. The ancient dukedom of Silesia derived its name from the Germanic tribe named the Silingers, who occupied Silesia between the 2nd and 6th centuries.

Reinhart Early Origins



The surname Reinhart was first found in Saxony, where this family became a prominent contributor to the development of the district from ancient times. The name stems from the Old-German word "Regin-hard" which means "brave in council." Always prominent in social affairs, the name became an integral part of that turbulent region as it emerged to form alliances with other families within the Feudal System and the nation.
