"Weiss" in context

Weiss is the name of both a German surname and aristocratic house. It can be traced back to early medieval documents in the mid-13th century, which refer to a group of "noblemen from Weiss". They were noblemen from what is now Saxony in Germany. The earliest records of this family suggest that they were from a place called Weiss, a small village that is no longer in existence.

Their traditional vocation of a scribe and diplomat eventually led them to become members of the empire's highest court.
