More about the History of Braunshorn

Braunshorn’s and Dudenroth’s founders were the Lords of Braunshorn, about 1090, one of whose lordly seats was the motte-and-bailey Castle Dudenroth, which can be regarded as the Hunsrück’s oldest defensive complex. Indeed, in both places, remnants of such mediaeval castles can be found. In 1098 came Castle Dudenroth’s first documentary mention; at this time it belonged to Gandolf von Braunshorn. The first church was mentioned in Heinrich von Braunshorn’s time, in 1175. In 1268, the lordly family moved its seat to Beilstein.

Ebschied’s beginnings, however, were somewhat different. It originally belonged to the Counts of Kessel on the Meuse. In 1295, it had its first documentary mention when the County’s heirs found themselves at odds with each other. In this same year, Walram, the Provost at Münster, sold his village, Ebschied, to the Counts Palatine.In 1352, Count Walram of Sponheim claimed comital rights in Ebschied, but because he would not comply with an arbiter’s ruling on the matter, Ebschied was pillaged under threat of burning.

In 1363, when the House of Braunshorn had no further male heirs, Braunshorn passed by marriage to the Lords of Winneburg-Beilstein. In the 17th century, Braunshorn and Dudenroth both lay in the territory governed by the “Three-Lord Court”, whose seat was in Beltem (Beltheim). Territorial holdings in this area were divided among three houses: the Counts Palatine at Simmern, the House of Boos von Waldeck and the Counts of Braunshorn.
