First edition.  Perched on the Zollenberg, just south of Hechingen, is the castle of Hohenzollern, which gave its name to the ruling house of Brandenburg–Prussia from 1415 to 1918, arguably the most powerful family in German history.  The ancestral lands were divided in 1575 by Count Karl I among his three sons, thereby founding the three lines Hohenzollern-Hechingen, Hohenzollern-Sigmaringen, and Hohenzollern-Haigerloch (this last dying out in 1634 and its territory absorbed by Hohenzollern-Sigmaringen).  The present work charts the early history of the area and the men who ruled it.  In 1849, the two remaining principalities were united to form the Province of Hohenzollern, at the time the smallest in Prussia.
