Stolberg Early Origins



The surname Stolberg was first found in the region of Thuringia, north of Franconia, where the noble surname Stolberg was anciently associated with the tribal conflicts of the area. Originating from a long line of princes and counts, they declared allegiances to many nobles and princes of early history, lending their influence in struggles for power and status within the region. The name Stolberg, mentioned in records as early as 1213, belongs to one of the oldest German houses bearing the title of count, and their contributions were sought by many leaders in their search for power.
