    In the 11th century Eschenbach belonged to the bishops of Eichstätt and towards the end of the 12th century, various counts were the lords of Eschenbach or Obereschenbach. To 1212/1220 Obereschenbach (since 1917 Wolframs-Eschenbach) was handed over by the Wertheim counts as a gift to the Teutonic Order. From this point on, the Teutonic Order played a significant role in the history of Eschenbach. He ruled the city for over 600 years. Eschenbach was located on an important trade route and became after some time a regional trading center as well as a secular and spiritual center. Emperor Ludwig the Bavarian gave the place on December 18, 1332 the city law.de.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wolframs-Eschenbach
