Earls of Konigsfeld – Georg Josef

An Earl from the House of Königsfeld, Germany. 1684 – 1749.

Historical records indicate he is the son of Josef Wilheim. However, DNA analysis proved that he is not the true biological son of Josef Wilheim.

Wife of Maria Anna and father of Karl Albrecht. No remains were discovered for Karl Albrecht, despite historical records indicating that he was buried at this site. However, the remains of a young female were discovered, which DNA analysis indicates to be a daughter of Maria Anna and Georg Josef (and hence a brother to Karl Albrecht).
