The Haus Trautson from Tyrol was ground in the 13th century under Emperor Rodolph I, hence the R in the arms on the eagle. It received the County of Falkenstein (Niederösterreich) at the end of the 16th century (1572) from Emperor Maximilian II.
Sprechenstein belonging to the Trauston family, is located in Italy, current South Tyrol. Only the ruins of the Burg Schrofenstein still exist in Stanz bei Landeck in Austrian Tyrol.
