Castle in Glött

The rule of Glött was acquired in 1537 by Anton Fugger (1493-1560). His son Hans Fugger (1531–1598) inherited the lordships of Glött, Kirchheim , Stettenfels Castle and Duttenstein . Anton Fugger's great-grandson, Johann Ernst, founded the Fugger-Glött line, which has since become extinct in the male line, as a branch of the Fugger von der Lilie .

The place Glött became the seat of the rule of the imperial counts Fugger-Glött with the places Baumgarten (1621 the rule Baumgarten was bought by the Fuggers), Dürrlauingen , Hafenhofen , Windhausen and Winterbach . Due to the Rhine Confederation Act in 1806, rule came to the Kingdom of Bavaria as part of mediatization . "At the end of the 18th century, the Fugger-Glött owned the Glött rulership , acquired in 1537, and the Hilgartsberg , Oberndorf am Lech and Ellgau rulers ." In 1869, the Fugger von Glött sold Glött Castle . The Fugger Castle in Kirchheim / Swabia , owned by the Fugger since 1551, came to the Fugger von Glött Count's line in 1878.

Joseph-Ernst Fugger von Glött (1895–1981) was childless and adopted his nephew Albert (* 1932), son of his older sister Maria (1894–1935) and Ferdinand Graf von Arco -Zinnebergs (1882–1940), who took the name Graf Fugger von Glött accepted and inherited the Fugger Castle in Kirchheim / Swabia .
