One genealogy branch - House of Sax (Hohensax)


One of the branches of my family recently unearthed is the family von Hohensax.  I've been researching information about this line that started with Albert I von Sax, my 23rd great-grandfather. His father was noted as Alcherrius De (da) Torre. 

A good summary I found is here: https://www.wikiwand.com/en/House_of_Sax

One note from the site lists the da Torre family as having been part of Churrätien nobility, which was from a medieval province after the Roman province Raetia Prima: 


Fascinating history!  I can't wait to visit these areas on a future trip.
