Family coat of arms of the von Dernbach family
Family coat of arms of those von Dernbach called Graul with silver shingles

Since the early 13th century, Lords of Dernbach have appeared in various places on the right bank of the Rhine. a. in the Montabaur area , in the Herborner Mark , as well as in the Gießen area ( Vetzberg Castle ). It is not known whether and how they were related to each other.

The Westerwald family, which emerged from ministeriality , was in the service of their long-established noble lords, namely the lords of Isenburg and Sayn , who had their ancestral castles in the area around Bendorf .

The sex in the Central Hessian area served the Landgraves of Thuringia / Hesse and the Counts of Gleiberg ( Grafschaft Gleiberg ).


The sex in the Westerwald

Coat of arms Dernbach (Westerwald)

From the knight and noble family of the von Dernbach near Montabaur, Gerardo de Derenbach is first mentioned in 1213, in connection with a payment made by Heinrich I von Isenburg, who resided at his Grenzau castle . The latter was built around 1213, while Dernbach Castle dates back to around 1200 and, as a moated castle, corresponded to the most common form of the individual permanent courtyard in the Westerwald at that time . It was a fiefdom of the sovereign Archbishop Theoderich II von Wied , whom the knights of Dernbach , including a knight Mantho, served with horses from 1217. Gerho von Dernbach, mentioned around this time as the owner of two farms in Heiligenroth , is certainly identical to the first named Gerardo (Gerhard), so that it was only with Cunradus de Derenbach, Rector of Nordhofen (1259/79), another member of the ministerial family von Dernbach, " who, with their eponymous moated castle, were feudal people of the Archbishops of Trier ”, is documented. Jutta de Derenbach also lived as a nun in the Dirstein Monastery near Diez / Lahn in the 13th century. In the 14th century the couple Gerhard (died 1364) and Gutgin von Dernbach continued the line. Her sons Gerhard (presumably deceased in 1374) and Philipp von Dernbach (deceased in 1393) are ultimately the last of the lower aristocratic family, whose coat of arms indicates their origins as ministerials of the Isenburg family. Dietrich von Grenzau / Isenburg had already bought their castle from Philipp in 1380. After a thorough renovation in the 19th century, it is now privately owned.

There were other genders who called themselves von Dernbach, u. a. in churches at the victory. There were two noble families (e.g. Rost von Dernbach) who called themselves that, but had different coats of arms, which emphasized their independence. These families probably died out with Herrmann von Dernbach, who was last mentioned in 1492.

The sex in Hessen

In 1226 a Conrad von Dernbach appears at Vetzberg Castle (Vogtsburg of the Counts of Gleiberg / Merenberg) near Gießen . Presumably he was a vassal of the Lords of Merenberg . He is considered the ancestor of the Dernbacher in Hesse. Five genders are known of the Hessian branch, sometimes called von Dernbach, sometimes von Voitsberg, namely: from and to Dernbach (see coat of arms : black forest clover leaves - or sea leaves or violet leaves is unclear - in Dreipas in a golden field), Wolf von Dernbach (silver leaves as above in blue with shingles), Krieg von Derbach / Vetzberg and Holzappel von Vetzberg (silver leaves as above in blue with star or crown), Rode von Dernbach (golden leaves as above in blue with and without Stern), called by Dernbach. Graul (golden leaves as above in blue with silver clapboards). There were other lines that died out early, with surnames such as, Ruchschade (Minnesänger), Mul , Kolb , Scheze and Hulsbach .

A military conflict, the Dernbacher Feud , against the up-and-coming Counts of Nassau lasted almost 100 years and ended in 1333. In 1325/27 the seat of the Lords of Dernbach, Alt-Dernbach Castle , was destroyed. Together with the Lords of Bicken , they then built Neu-Dernbach Castle in the municipality of Bad Endbach , Marburg-Biedenkopf / Hesse, by 1350 . From 1350 to 1748 the Landgraves of Hesse were their feudal lords. After the family died out in 1748, Landgrave Ludwig VIII Dernbach moved in as a fallen fiefdom and converted it into a domain .

In 1540, Peter von Dernbach called Graul sold the half of the Dernbach castle seat that belonged to him to the landgrave and moved to Wiesenfeld (Burgwald) . His descendants include Balthasar von Dernbach called Graul, prince abbot of Fulda and Peter Philipp von Dernbach called Graul, prince-bishop of Bamberg and Würzburg and the imperial counts of Dernbach.

The last resident of the castle seat in Dernbach (Ldkrs. Marburg-Biedenkopf), Peter Philipp Friedrich von und zu Dernbach, died on January 2, 1729 after falling from his horse. Friedrich Ludwig Christian von Dernbach, captain of the guard in Kassel , died in 1748, the last Hesse-Darmstadt feudal beneficiary from the Protestant line. The Electorate Hessian Catholic, baronial branch went out with Theresa Freifrau von Schorlemer née. Freiin von Dernbach on November 1, 1965 in Weilburg.

A drawing by J. Bayrer from 1764 shows the new building (from 1750) of the administrator's house with outbuildings of the Dernbach domain. This representation is often incorrectly referred to as Schlossbau Dernbach. There was never a castle in Dernbach. The gentlemen von und zu Dernbach lived in buildings on the estate outside the castle. As early as 1570, the castle was considered to be in ruins.

Hessian Dernbachers as Burgmannen in Montabaur

In 1429 Johann and Heidrich von Dernbach, brothers, are mentioned as castle men in Montabaur. Johann von Dernbach appeared in 1466 as a Burgmann in Montabaur. In the same year he assigned his Trier castle loan to Montabaur as a widow's estate to his wife Demund. Johann's brother Heidenreich is mentioned in Montabaur in 1456 and 1467. Since 1520 the lords von und zu Dernbach owned two farms in Bottenhorn (municipality of Bad Endbach) as an Electorate Castle fief from Montabaur.

Were there unknown family ties to the family of the Dernbacher in the Westerwald or why did the Hessian Dernbacher enter the service of the Bishop of Trier?

Assassination of the judge of heretics

Members of the noble family von Dernbach killed the confessor of St. Elisabeth and heretic judge (inquisitor) Konrad von Marburg and his companions on July 30, 1233 near Marburg (near Beltershausen) . They had either been suspected of heresy by Konrad themselves or were connected to other suspects, most likely Count Heinrich III. von Sayn, who was wrongly accused of heresy. The attack, to which the knights freely confessed, was not punished by an extraordinary court with the severity customary in the Middle Ages, but punished with a more symbolic “penance”, which in fact meant an acquittal. It is unclear what sex the assassins came from (Lords of Dernbach / Westerwald - obvious because of their proximity to the Count's House of Sayn - or Lords of Dernbach / Hessen).

arms book from 1701

The coat of arms of the von Dernbach bei Montabaur family has been documented since the 14th century, from the Balduineum (coat of arms book) of Archbishop Balduin von Trier , Count von Lützelburg. It shows two red and one black bars on silver and thus refers to the origin of the knightly noble family as ministerials of the Lords of Isenburg . The colors of the bars represent the main tribes of the most important noble family in the Westerwald, founded by the brothers Rembold (red) and Gerlach (black) von Isenburg. The shape of the shield (inverted Gothic arch) and the bar ornamentation are borrowed from the two family coats of arms of the House of Isenburg, the bars of which symbolize the iron fittings of their shields and at the same time the beginning of their family name (Ysen = iron). The coat of arms of Gerardo de Derenbach is today the municipal coat of arms of Dernbach (Westerwald) .

The coat of arms of the trunk line von und zu Dernbach ( Neu-Dernbach Castle ) shows in gold, in which there are three black hearts in the shape of a clover, with the tips converging; Above it rest two tournament helmets, of which the one on the right (always seen from the bearer of the coat of arms) shows a silver swan sitting between two golden flags, the one on the left a black barret (tournament hat) lined with white and decorated with two peacock tails. The helmet covers are golden on the inside and black on the outside.

Coat of arms of Heydenreich von Dernbach in the Wetzlar Cathedral

The coat of arms with the two helmets ( coat of arms association ) was probably created after the heiress of the Wetzlar line with the peacock wedeln (descendant of the Heydenreich von Dernbach, whose epitaph is in the Wetzlar cathedral ) married into the line with the swan neck. This coat of arms also led the baronial line.

The coat of arms (from Dernbach called Graul): "clover leaf without stem" or "sea leaves placed with the tips in the Schächerkreuz" also "three hearts placed in a triangle, with the tips butting together", in gold / black or blue / gold with shingles. The blue ground with silver shingles was first documented in 1323 by Heidinrich von Dernbach. The shield image in blue three golden sea leaves arranged in the shape of a drawbar, accompanied by silver shingles. The crowned helmet, with a closed flight , as the carrier of the coat of arms.

It is unclear whether it was originally three sea leaves, three forest clover leaves, three violet leaves or three hearts.

The “alliance coat of arms” should go back to Count Johann von Dernbach. Quartered and divided with heart shield; in field 1 and 4 in front three openwork black diamonds (2: 1) in silver / white, behind in silver / white half a black eagle. In fields 2 and 3 a silver diagonal bar in blue, covered with three blue rings (coat of arms of the Echter von Mespelbrunn). The heart shield is the Dernbach coat of arms. On the crowned helmet on the left, with black and silver covers, a black eagle flight, in the center a crowned helmet, shortened blue and silver covers, open blue flight as the bearer of the coat of arms and on the right, crowned helmet with blue and silver covers, two blue buffalo horns labeled as the shield.

Master lists

The inadequate, often flawed, source situation affects the entire period of the family branches. Secured data are mentioned in a document, dates of birth and death o. G. However, periods of time are often unsecured and, with the greatest possible likelihood of the often divergent data sources, to be viewed with reservations. Genealogical details, even the assignment of members of the house, remain unresolved.
