County of Nieder Lausitz
COUNTY OF NIEDER LAUSITZ (Lower Lusatia)
The County Nieder Lausitz (now in Saxony, Germany) became a possession of the Kings of Bohemia in 1364. On May 30, 1635 Ober and Nieder Lausitz were sold to the Dukes of Saxony. The Kings of Bohemia, and their successors, the Austrian Emperors, however, kept using the title of Margrave of Nieder Lausitz.
The arms are identical to the arms of the city of Luckau, which still uses the arms today. The arms are known as such since the 14th century.
