Life

Jobst Nikolaus I became the nominal ruler of the County of Hohenzollern shortly after his birth Initially, he stood under the regency and guardianship of his father Eitel Friedrich I c 1384 – 1439 Under a succession treaty of 1429 with the House of Württemberg, the County would fall to the Counts of Württemberg if the Swabian branch of the House of Hohenzollern were to die out in the male line With Jobst Nikolaus's birth, this risk was averted

Emperor Friedrich III granted Jobst Nikolaus I and his heirs in 1471 the right to operate a mine in his county, and the right to mint coins In 1488, Jobst Nikolaus acquired the Lordship of Haigerloch He rebuilt the ancestral seat, Hohenzollern Castle It would serve as the residence of the Counts of Hohenzollern until the late 18th century

The county had come in a precarious political situation during the reign of the preceding generation The county was fragmented when it had been divided between his father and his uncle Friedrich XII The financial situation was almost hopeless and there was a risk that the Swabian line of the Hohenzollerns might die out Friedrich XII had sold some land to improve the financial situation, however, this meant that the county became politically insignificant The situation began to improve during the reign of Jobst Nikolaus's father, Eitel Friedrich I Jobst Nikolaus managed to enlarge the territory significantly This positive development continued under his son Eitel Friedrich II
