Medieval Silesia is the birthplace of the noble Stolzer family. The Stolzer surname is derived from the German word "stoltz," which means "proud," and as such, it was most likely originally a nickname, which became a hereditary surname.

Stolzer Early Origins



The surname Stolzer was first found in Silesia, where the name contributed greatly to the development of an emerging province which would later play a role in the national conflicts of the area. In later years the name branched into many houses, each playing a significant role in local social and political affairs.
