Hohenlohe (noble family)
Hohenlohe is a Franconian noble family of the high nobility . His domain extended over the Hohenlohe plain, later named after him, between Kocher , Tauber and Jagst . Despite repeated partitions in the 13th and 15th centuries and donations to the Teutonic Order (1219), Hohenlohe was able to form an almost closed territory. The Lords of Hohenlohe were raised to the status of imperial counts in 1450 , from the middle of the 18th century the area and its rulers were princely .
History of the House of Hohenlohe
Family name and origin
The home country of the house is the former Taubergau and Gollachgau . The name Hohenlohe as a family name was the first to use Konrad, one of the three sons of Konrad von Weikersheim , first mentioned in 1153 , in the form of "Hohenlach" or "Holach". This name was later also used by his brothers Heinrich and Albert. It is derived from the no longer existing Hohlach Castle near Uffenheim in Middle Franconia , to which the Lords of Weikersheim had relocated their headquarters. This was probably due to the proximity of Hohlach Castle to the trade routes between Frankfurt , Würzburg and Augsburg . Proof of this assumption is the fact that the Lords of Hohenlohe held the right of escort on the streets there until the 14th century in the Central Franconian areas around the Taubertal .
For the time before Konrad von Hohenlohe, his father Konrad von Weikersheim and his brother Heinrich, there is no reliable evidence. It is considered plausible, but it cannot be proven, that the lords of Weikersheim and later lords of Hohenlohe are of the same tribe as the noble lords of Pfitzingen near Niederstetten . It is possible that the name change occurred when a member of the Weikersheim family married the heiress of an existing family on Hohlach. Other theories try to prove that the Hohenlohe family descended from the dukes of Franconia or from the lords of Mergentheim . In 1219 the brothers Andreas, Friedrich and Heinrich von Hohenlohe, who returned to Damiette from the crusade , donated property and rights to the Teutonic Order as well as their castle in Mergentheim, making it the Teutonic Order Castle Mergentheim .
Of the three sons of Konrad von Weikersheim, Konrad and Albrecht died childless. Heinrich von Hohenlohe, the third son, had five sons, of whom Andreas, Heinrich and Friedrich entered the Teutonic Order and thus the clergy. Gottfried and Konrad were at the head of the house in the Staufer period and were followers of Emperor Friedrich II , after their uncles Konrad and Albrecht had appeared several times at the Reichstag in the 12th century and Albrecht had participated in the Third Crusade of 1189. Frederick II rewarded the two brothers for their services by granting counties as fiefdoms. Konrad von Hohenlohe received the County of Molise in Abruzzo as a fief in December 1229 , but had to have it as early as 1230 as part of the emperor's removal from the church ban by Pope Gregory IX. give back again. From 1230 Konrad and Gottfried (both individually and together) carried the title Count of Romagna .
A family contract from 1230 regulated, among other things, the delimitation of the communal fiefdom. Konrad received the eastern part, which is now largely in Bavaria, with the main castle in Brauneck . His family branch died out in the male line in 1390, the possessions were lost to the Hohenlohe family. Gottfried received the western part with the ancestral seat Burg Hohlach . In addition, he received rule over Langenburg from Emperor Friedrich II as a Würzburg fiefdom , whose lords had joined the Teutonic Order and had family ties to the Hohenlohe. Gottfried became educator and advisor to King Conrad IV . This allegedly survived a murder plot in Regensburg in 1250, the mastermind of which is said to have been the bishop of Regensburg . King Konrad gave Gottfried as gratitude for his help Regensburg fiefdoms . This also included the bailiwick of the Canons' Monastery of Öhringen, founded in 1037, and the places Neuenstein and Waldenburg . Gottfried's son, Kraft I. von Hohenlohe, expanded his territory through numerous acquisitions of properties belonging to the lower nobility, including Lichteneck Castle with the town of Ingelfingen . His son Kraft II also made numerous enlargements of the area, especially in the area of the middle cooker and the Jagst .
As a result of this enlargement of the area, there was a territorial rule of Hohenlohe, which went beyond the old form of noble rule with manorial rule and jurisdiction . The Lords of Hohenlohe received money from customs duties and escort rights, they held the right to mint the mint in Öhringen , the right to protect Jews and numerous market rights in Hohenlohe towns. As bailiffs , the Hohenlohe were first in Öhringen and in Kochergau , later for all possessions, owners of jurisdiction. The mayors were also subordinate to them. In 1418, the Roman-German king and later Emperor Sigismund granted Albrecht von Hohenlohe absolute jurisdiction over the entire territory. The Hohenlohe could only be prosecuted by the emperor or an imperial court, while their subjects and servants could only be prosecuted by a Hohenlohe court. Thus all essential rulership rights were in the hands of the Hohenlohe, so that one can speak of a state rule. The Empire earldom had the Hohenlohe but not obtained at the end of the Middle Ages, they were only nobilis vir and not comes .
On May 13, 1450 Kraft V. was from the later Emperor Friedrich III. raised to the rank of imperial count, the lending related to the counties Ziegenhain and Nidda , whose lordships were extinct and with whom the Hohenlohe had family ties through marriage. The lending led to a dispute with Landgrave Ludwig I of Hesse , who also asserted claims on the two counties. It was not until 45 years later, at the Diet of Worms in 1495, the dispute was through the Roman-German King I. Maximilian be settled. The Hohenlohe paid the landgrave compensation and retained the title of count, which was now related to the home country. The year 1495 is thus the hour of birth of the County of Hohenlohe and the Counts of Hohenlohe.
During the Reformation the Hohenlohe family became Protestant , Count Georg I is said to have received the Lord's Supper on his deathbed in 1551 according to Protestant custom. With the church ordinance of 1553, his sons ordered the Augsburg Confession ( Confessio Augustana ) for all pastors and preachers in the county. With the Peace of Augsburg in 1556, the Reformation in Hohenlohe was completed, and the Canons' Monastery of Öhringen was also reformed.
Main land division
The main land division of the house came about in 1555, when the two half-brothers Ludwig Casimir and Eberhard agreed on a division of the home land and the two main lines Hohenlohe- Neuenstein and Hohenlohe- Waldenburg were created. Both lines were named after their ancestral home. Öhringen, which remained in the joint ownership of the two lines, was not affected by the division of land. Numerous other divisions of the lines took place up to 1806. An ideal connection between the rulers was always preserved. This was expressed, among other things, in the fact that the emperor awarded the imperial fiefs to the respective senior of the ruling counts.
After the counts of Gleichen died out in 1631, the Counts of Hohenlohe-Langenburg were given the Thuringian county of Obergleichen with its seat at Ehrenstein Castle in Ohrdruf . In 1663 they divided them up under the lines Hohenlohe-Langenburg and Hohenlohe-Neuenstein. Count Johann Ludwig von Hohenlohe-Langenburg-Gleichen had Bartenau Castle built in Künzelsau in 1679 .
The Hohenlohe area was initially largely spared from the Thirty Years War , but later, due to the fact that the Count of Hohenlohe-Weikersheim supported King Gustav II Adolf of Sweden, the Weikersheim rule was withdrawn.
Only after the Peace of Westphalia in 1648 was the house reinstated in its old rights and received back in full the drafted lordships, which had in the meantime been transferred to the Teutonic Order as a fief. The Peace of Westphalia confirmed the imperial estates and thus also the Hohenlohe their old rights and the high regional authority, so that they could rule like sovereign rulers .
Confessional division of the two main lines
The two main lines split in October 1667 when the two sons of Georg Friedrich II. Von Hohenlohe-Waldenburg-Schillingsfürst, Count Christian (progenitor of the Bartenstein line ) and Ludwig Gustav (progenitor of the Schillingsfürst line ) joined the Roman Catholic family Returned to the church . With the extinction of the Hohenlohe-Waldenburg-Waldenburg line in 1679 and Hohenlohe-Waldenburg- Pfedelbach in 1728, the entire ownership of the main Waldenburg line fell to the Catholic counts.
Efforts to be elevated to the rank of imperial princes also contributed to the division of the two lines. On May 21, 1744, Emperor Karl VII raised Imperial Count Philipp Ernst von Hohenlohe-Waldenburg-Schillingsfürst and Imperial Count Karl Philipp von Hohenlohe-Waldenburg-Bartenstein and their descendants to imperial princes. Their parts of the country were only raised to the status of imperial principality on August 14, 1757 by Emperor Franz I. The elevation of the Waldenburg line to princes led to a dispute about priority in the entire house. It was not until January 7, 1764 that the older Neuensteiner line was elevated to the rank of imperial prince by Emperor Franz. The conflicts over the priority in the entire house persisted. It was only in the context of the Öhringen Convention of June 12, 1782, with which Ludwig Friedrich Karl Prince of Hohenlohe-Neuenstein acquired the share of the Waldenburg main line in Öhringen and now became the sole ruler of the residential city , did the princes agree that the hierarchy in the entire house should be determined by the age of the ruling prince.
Mediatization: end of the Hohenlohe state rule
Acquisition of ownership in Silesia
Prince Friedrich Ludwig zu Hohenlohe-Ingelfingen came into the possession of the Slawentzitz rule in Upper Silesia through marriage in 1782 . In 1804 he also acquired the Landsberg and Koschentin lords . His grandson Hugo, Prince zu Hohenlohe-Öhringen , who held dominion Slawentzitz in 1849, reached their appointment as outdoor caste domination and gained in 1861 with the coronation of William I the title of Duke of Ujest . The duchy, which had its seat in Slawentzitz, united the Fideikommisse Slawentzitz, Ujest and Bitschin with an area of 175 km². With its entry into calamine mining and zinc smelting in Upper Silesia, the Hohenlohe-Oehringen company became one of the world's largest zinc producers.
Hohenlohe Central Archive
The Hohenlohe Central Archive in Schloss Neuenstein is jointly owned by the six Hohenlohe lines and is responsible for all former and still active administrations of the House of Hohenlohe as well as for the bequests of family members.
coat of arms
The Hohenlohe coat of arms first appeared at the beginning of the 13th century: two striding black leopards with bowed tails. They can be seen for the first time on a seal on the oldest Hohenlohe document from 1207. This document attests to the donation of the church in Mergentheim to the Order of St. John by Albert von Hohenlohe, who came into contact with this order through his participation in the crusade with Emperor Friedrich I. Barbarossa .
The coat of arms of the Hohenloher family shows two black leopards standing on top of one another, striding to the right with downcast tails; Originally two silver buffalo horns on the helmet with red and silver covers, each equipped with five golden linden branches on the outside, later a silver phoenix with red flight feathers on the wings.
The motto of those at Hohenlohe is "ex flammis orior" (German: I rise from the flames). This motto goes back to Prince Philipp Ernst zu Hohenlohe-Waldenburg-Schillingsfürst, the builder of Schillingsfürst Castle , who founded the House Order of the Golden Flame in 1754 in order to raise the splendor of the entire Hohenlohe House. His son, Prince Karl Albrecht I zu Hohenlohe-Waldenburg-Schillingsfürst, renewed the order in 1775 with the name House and Knight Order of the Phoenix with the motto "ex flammis orior".
The Order of the Phoenix was only awarded to people of old nobility, from 1793 to 1818 to a total of 59 nobles. The most famous bearer of the Hohenlohe Order of the Phoenix was King Ludwig XVIII. of France .

see Duchy of Ratibor
From the royal Prussian chamber property at Ratibor in Upper Silesia, which was expanded as a secularized church property by (1810), the rule Ratibor arose, which was acquired in 1812 by the Prince Elector of Hesse-Kassel . In 1820, the rule of Ratibor was elevated to a media principality , which Landgrave Viktor Amadeus of Hesse-Rotenburg (1779–1834) got together with the Corvey Monastery in Westphalia as a replacement for areas left of the Rhine that had been ceded to France. The childless landgrave had decided to bequeath his property - Ratibor in Silesia, Corvey in Westphalia and Treffurt in the Erfurt administrative district - to the two eldest sons of his brother-in-law, Prince Franz-Joseph zu Hohenlohe-Schillingsfürst (1787–1841). In an inheritance contract, his three sons had divided up the estate of their father and uncle in such a way that the eldest, Hereditary Prince Viktor, took control of Ratibor, Clovis (who later became Chancellor) took control of Corvey and Philipp Ernst took control of Schillingsfürst. In 1840 Viktor , who resided in the secularized monastery of Rauden , received the hereditary title Duke of Ratibor from the King of Prussia. When Philipp Ernst died in 1845 without male descendants, Clovis ceded the Corvey reign to his brother Viktor and took over his father's family house, Schillingsfürst, with the title of prince. In 1894 the wife of Duke Viktor II. Amadeus von Ratibor , born Countess Breuner , inherited the Lower Austrian estates of her male family, Grafenegg , Neuaigen and Asparn , which, together with Corvey, are still owned by the ducal family.

- The civil name of all lines of the House of Hohenlohe in Germany begins in 1919 with Prince zu Hohenlohe-… or Princess zu Hohenlohe-… . The respective heads of the lines traditionally call themselves Fürst zu Hohenlohe-… in public to this day . This traditional designation with the so-called first -born title can usually be interpreted as a pseudonym. As a form of courtesy, it is common in non-official contexts, both in literature and in society, to use the name with the title of first-born. The practice, which goes back to the no longer existing and inheritable primogeniture nobility , should actually be officially irrelevant according to a judgment of the Federal Administrative Court of March 11, 1966. In some cases, in particular of the Hohenlohe family, the part of the name Fürst was included in the register of residents due to the goodwill of the local authority (see also Wilfried Rogasch : Schnellkurs Adel , DuMont, Cologne 2004, ISBN 978-3-8321-7617-4 , P. 17)

- Genealogy of the House of Hohenlohe in Paul Theroff's online Gotha
- The son of Karl-Albrecht zu Hohenlohe-Schillingsfürst died at the age of 26 in Cologne. The Bavarian line of the House of Hohenlohe-Schillingsfürst expired in 2005 in the male line. The succession of the House of Hohenlohe-Schillingsfürst now went to an Austrian descendant of Konstantin Viktor Prinz zu Hohenlohe-Schillingsfürst (* 1828, † 1896). Prince Konstantin Viktor was a younger brother of Chancellor Chlodwig zu Hohenlohe-Schillingsfürst and founded the Austrian line of the House of Hohenlohe.
- The qualified engineer Constantin zu Hohenlohe-Schillingsfürst is an Austrian citizen and therefore bears the real name Constantin Hohenlohe , because according to the Austrian Nobility Repeal Act , in contrast to the situation in Germany, neither the nobility sign “from” or “to” nor aristocratic denominations such as for example “Prinz” or “Fürst” are part of the name. Constantin Hohenlohe is a great-great-grandson of Prince Konstantin Viktor zu Hohenlohe-Schillingsfürst (* 1828, † 1896), who founded the Austrian line of the House of Hohenlohe. Constantin Hohenlohe has appeared in public under the unofficial traditional name of Fürst zu Hohenlohe-Schillingsfürst since 2005 , which characterizes him as the head of the house. Constantin Hohenlohe's younger brother is the well-known Austrian journalist Karl Hohenlohe .
