Schierer (formerly Schierer von Waldheim zu Falknov)[edit]

Is a medieval family name dating back to the first Bohemian glassmakers. Paul Schierer, the Elder, invented the colouring process of blue glass by adding cobalt (c27). The Schierer family later became purveyors to the German-Roman Emperor, Rudolph II, in Prague and have been ennobled by the latter in 1592 and confirmed in 1663. Forced by the 30 years war (1618-1648) the knighted Protestant branches of the Schierer family extended to Sweden and Denmark having their baronial status confirmed. The Roman Catholic branches remained in Lower Austria, Litschau and Vienna and were confirmed as freiherrlich, "Barons of the Holy Roman Empire", and as knights.
