The German state of Silesia is the glorious birthplace of the distinguished surname Rosenow. 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.

Rosenow Early Origins



The surname Rosenow was first found in Silesia, where this family name became a prominent contributor to the development of the district from ancient times. 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.
