The Counts of Celje were the most known residents of Celje Castle. The most influential noble family in Slovenian history was first known under the name Lords of Sanneck. In 1341, Frederick I was named Count of Celje by the Emperor Louis IV and with that the great era of the Counts of Celje began.
The inheritance of Celje in 1333 and the attainment of the title of Count in 1341 was the basis of their rapid economic and political rise in the succeeding century. They acquired extensive land holdings in Styria (Štajerska), Carniola (Kranjska), Carinthia (Koroška) and in the countries under the crown of Saint Stephen.

Ulrich II. was the last male member of the Dynasty of the counts of Celje. With his death a secret was buried that has remained unexplored until today – a mysterious object, possessed by magic powers.
The most famous Slovenian love story of the Middle Ages has kept the myth of the Counts of Celje alive, regardless of the fact that Celje dynasty died out with Friderick’s son, Ulrich II, insidiously murdered by grudgers as the last male descendant of Celje dynasty. The locals in Celje have never ceased to believe in their counts and myths.
