Schonberg Early Origins



The surname Schonberg was first found in Bavaria, where the name was anciently associated with the tribal conflicts of the area. They declared allegiances to many nobles and princes of early history, lending their influence in struggles for power and status within the region. They branched into many houses, and their contributions were sought by many leaders in their search for power. Frederick Schomberg accompanied William III to England in 1688 and ultimately created the Duke of Schomnberg there. [1]CITATION[CLOSE]
