Life

Conrad was the son of Burgrave Frederick I originally Count Frederick III of Zollern, the first Nuremberg Burgrave of the Hohenzollern, and Sophie of Raabs As a count of Zollern he is enumerated as Conrad I After the death of his father around 1204 the rank of burgrave passed first to Conrad's younger brother, Frederick II However, in 1218 or possibly 1214 the house's possessions were divided again and Conrad then received the possessions in Franconia with the title of burgrave

In this period he strengthened his power and supported the House of Hohenstaufen in the fight between Guelphs and Ghibellines for the royal crown Emperor Frederick II wished to develop Nuremberg to a dependable base, and therefore in 1219 bestowed a great charter of freedom upon the castle market While Conrad took over the military protection of the town as a Burgrave, the citizens were able to attain an increasing autonomy in their internal affairs Conrad also supported the emperor when he was banished The death of Frederick II in 1250 was a heavy blow to the Hohenzollerns, because they now lacked their major support against the other German nobility

Between 1237 and 1239 Conrad was an administrator of the duchy of Austria together with the Counts of Henneberg and of Andechs, although for political reasons he often opposed these families Among other territories, he acquired the Rangau with Ansbach, significant parts of the Pegnitz valley and gained control over the most important trade routes to Nuremberg He successfully fought against the marauding knights and warded off the nobility
