The Barons Hardt Von Welienstein were ennobled in the kingdom of Wurttemberg on 1st November 1843. They use the same arms as Hardt Zu Grabenstadt of Bavaria who were ennobled in the Holy Roman Empire on 25th November 1762.
The Kings of Wurttemberg once ruled Swabia, a South Western medieval duchy extending from the River Rhine in the West to the Alps in the South, Bavaria in the East, and Franconia in the North, which contained the artistic centres of Strasbourg, Constance and Augsburg. The area provides an infinite variety of beautiful picturesque landscapes, bounded on the South by the blue line of the Swabian Jura which rise to over 874 metres, and with small valleys enlivened by orchards and vineyards that alternate with the gentle slopes of wooded hillsides.
