In Reply to: House of Conrad (Konrad?) connection? by glkennedy of 607

This name gained popularity during the Middle Ages as it was the Christian name of two German kings, Konrad 11 and Konrad 1V. Konrad 11, the Salian (c.990-1039), was King of Germany and Holy Roman Emperor (1024-390)
he founded the Salian Dynasty and began Germany's great imperial phase, while crushing rebel factions in Germany and adding Lusatia and Burgandy to his empire, he did much to overcome northern Italy. Konrad 111, reigned from 1093-1152, but was forced to concede Saxony to Henry the Lion in 1142. References to this name in written records in Germany may be found as early as the fourteenth century. In 1362, on Heinrich Kontz is noted to have been a citizen of Zurich. Variants include Konz, Kontz, Kunz and Kuntz.
