The detailed history of the Lords and Stael von Holstein spots

Stael-von-Holstein-2

The sex was called initially “Spots” and was divided into two main lines, one of which retained the name of the spots and the other is called Stael. The castle was the headquarters of Holstein, and this led to the nickname of each line “of Holstein”. Later, than the sex itself further branched, still others came to nickname, e.g.. Stael v. Holstein to hard rock, Honrath, Langwit, Aspic, Suthausen etc.
