Foundation Information
 

Nuns living according to Augustinian rule dwelt originially at the community of Michelfeld near Kitzengen. The lords of Hohenlohe were probably the founders of this female community. Krafto von Hohenlohe conveyed patronage rights over the parish of Königshofen to the community, which the nuns transferred to the abbot of Zell when they moved to Tückelhausen (Link, 609).
