  Hohenstaufen - LoveToKnow 1911
HOHENSTAUFEN, the name of a village and ruined castle near Lorsch in Swabia, now in the kingdom of Wurttemberg, which gave its name to a celebrated Swabian family, members of which were emperors or German kings from 1138 to 1208, and again from 1214 to 1254.
The second Hohenstaufen emperor was Frederick Barbarossa's son, Henry VI., after whose death a struggle for the throne took place between Henry's brother Philip, duke of Swabia, and Otto of Brunswick, afterwards the emperor Otto IV.
Regained for the Hohenstaufen by Henry's son, Frederick II., in 1214, the German kingdom passed to his son, Conrad IV., and when Conrad's son Conradin was beheaded in Italy in 1268, the male line of the Hohenstaufen became extinct.

 9.SS-Panzer-Division "Hohenstaufen"
The 9.SS-Panzer-Division "Hohenstaufen" was formed in December, 1942, and was subsequently trained in Maille le Camp in France.
"Hohenstaufen" therefore was taken out of the line, reorganized (Both the Panzergrenadier-Regiments were combined to form Panzergrenadier-Regiment "Hohenstaufen") and sent to the east to be placed under the command of the I.SS-Panzerkorps and again acted as a reserve for the coming crisis.
After the initial battles "Hohenstaufen" succeeded with the help of regular German troops in Holland (Gruppe von Tettau and others) in pushing the major part of the British/Polish forces back in Oosterbeek near Arnhem which was evacuated in the night of 25th/26th of September.
