Coat of Arms of Rhöntal

This is a list of monarchs of Rhöntal (German: Herzöge von Rhöntal). The list includes all rulers of Rhöntal since the countries de facto independence in 1573.

County of Rhöntal (1573–1645)

The origin of the Rhöntal monarchy can be traced back to the succession of a junior Line of the Landgraves of Groten to the Principality of Redlingen. From the main line of their descendants the current monarchs succeded to the throne of Rhöntal through Prince Johann of Redlingen who founded the House of Scharnwart.
