About Burchard von Zollern, Graf von Zollern

In line with many dynasties, origin and beginning of the Hohenzollern dynasty is not defined in history. In 1061 the first documented mention was in the “World Chronicle“. Monk Berthold of the Abbey in Reichenau stated that both brothers Wezil and Burchardus ”de Zolorin” were killed in battle.
