The article maps the period of the rise of the House of Mecklenburg from 1167 to 1348, when Mecklenburg was undergoing a long-term process of integrating into the imperial structures following the fall of the Obotritic tribal state. This process was officialy finalised by Charles IV, who ceremonially raised the two brothers Albrecht II. and John I. to imperial Dukes in July 1348. Albrecht was an ambitious ruler and the period of his rule marked the beginning of powerful foreign policy of the House of Mecklenburg. With the rise of the House of Mecklenburg, the need for codification and legitimization of the ancient royal tradition arose in order to support the ambitions of the Mecklenburgs. This article also mentions several aspects of the evolution of genealogic and heraldic tales about the family in the works of Ernst Kirchberg and Nicolaus Marschalk.
