9.-11. Century

Unruochinger / Counts of Urach

The Counts and later Princes of Fuerstenberg rank among the earliest of the mEuropean high aristocracy. In all probability, they can be ascribed to theUnrochinger, a Franconian countship located in inner Swabia during the times of Charlemagne (around 800 A.D.). Certifiable genealogy has been traced back to the Counts of Urach, holding estates in the Swabian Alp and the intermediary Neckar region in 11th century.
