English Edelen coat of arms copyright House Of Names.
According to the House Of Names: This German surname of EDELEN was originally derived from the Old German word EDEL meaning nobel. In the Middle Ages this was a term applied to the lowest order of free citizen, ranking below the nobility and knightly class, but above the masses of the servile population.
The surname Edelen was first found in Bavaria, where the name was anciently associated with the tribal conflicts of the area. They declared allegiances to many nobles and princes of early history, lending their influence in struggles for power and status within the region. They branched into many houses, and their contributions were sought by many leaders in their search for power.
