The Duchy of Saxe-Weimar-Eisenach (German: Herzogtum Sachsen-Weimar-Eisenach) was created in 1809 by the merger of the Ernestine duchies of Saxe-Weimar and Saxe-Eisenach, which had been in personal union since 1741, when the Saxe-Eisenach line had died out. It became a Grand Duchy in 1815. In 1877, it officially changed its name to the Grand Duchy of Saxony (German: Großherzogtum Sachsen), but this name was rarely used. The Grand Duchy came to an end in 1918 with the other German monarchies, and the state was merged into the new state of Thuringia two years later.
The full grand ducal style was Grand Duke of Saxony-Weimar-Eisenach, Landgrave in Thuringia, Margrave of Meißen, Princely Count of Henneberg, Lord of Blankenhayn, Neustadt and Tautenburg.
Michael-Benedikt Georg Jobst Karl Alexander Bernhard Claus Frederick, Prince of Saxe-Weimar-Eisenach, Duke in Saxony (15 November 1946), is a German prince and the current Head of the Grand Ducal house of Saxe-Weimar-Eisenach.
It has an area of 1397 sq. miles, and consists of three non-contiguous parts: Weimar (678 sq. miles); Eisenach (465); and Neustadt (254). In 1910 the grand duchy had 417,166 inhabitants; in 1905 it had a population of 388,095, including 18,049 Catholics (5 per cent), 367,789 Protestants, and 1412 Jews.
best of luck to you!

Sounds like a dynastic German family name... probably part of the Wettin family...
