Rastro heráldico da família: Binninger
Ancient and noble German family, of clear and ancestral virtu, that has worldwide spread, over the centuries.

Moreover, this family, in all ages, always stood out, thanks to the prominent figures, which gave birth, in the public service, in the liberal professions and in the military service. Among these, without undervalue the omitted, we would like to mention: Albertus, landowner in Baden-Württemberg, flourishing in 1502; Hainrich, eminent jurist, flourishing in Baden-Württemberg, in 1515; Karl Friedrich, councillor in Tuttlingen, flourishing in 1545; Anton Hans, landowner in Baden-Württemberg, flourishing in 1601; Gerard, doctor in law,...
