The former municipality of Ebratshofen had been one district capital of the Lordship of Hohenegg. The lower sinister quarter displays the family arms of the Knights of Laubenberg. They were first mentioned in 1247 and had been in service as commissionaires of the Counts of Montfort, the Imperial Kempten Abbey and the Bishopric of Augsburg. The former municipality of Schönau was ruled by the knights as an Austrian fiefdom.
