The family seat was a manorial estate. Hardenberg descended from ancient, Lower German nobility with its ancestral seat at Nörten-Hardenberg since 1287 to this day. Different lines of the family include such important, influential magistrates and ministry officials as the Prussian chancellor Karl August von Hardenberg (1750–1822). He spent his childhood on the family estate and used it as the starting point for his travels into the Harz mountains.

The German-language title of Freiherr is rendered in English as "Baron", although the title was derived separately in the two languages. [1] Even in German, a Freiherr is often styled and addressed as "Baron" in social circumstances, although not the official title.
