The surname Vogeler is a name that originated in Thuringia, which is located between Hessen and Lower Saxony in the west and Saxony in the east. During the 2nd and 3rd centuries, Thuringia was a kingdom of the Germanic Hermunderen, but the land was conquered by the Franks and the Saxons in the mid-6th century. Thuringia was brought under the rule of Franconian counts by Charles Martel and Charlemagne founded the Thuringian Mark in 804 as a defensive region against the Slavs. In the late 15th century, Thuringia was divided into four main principalities: Sachsen-Weimar, Sachsen-Altenburg, Sachsen-Coburg, and Sachsen-Meiningen. Thuringia retained its independent status until it became a part of the German Empire after the Unification of 1871.

Vogeler Early Origins



The surname Vogeler was first found in Thuringia, in the south-eastern part of Saxony, 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. The family can be traced as far back as the year 1544, when Heinrich Vogel the Elder founded a branch of the family in the Duchy of Gotha.
