Margarita Hofer

Life Sketch
Margarita Hofer was the wife of Johannes Zumbrunnen the Landammann of Uri. She was probably born around the mid-1400s. She must have been deeply familiar with Uri’s civic life as her father Arnold Hofer was also the Landammann of Uri several decades before her husband took the office.

They had only one known child, also named Johannes Zumbrunnen. Margarita and her husband resided in Attinghasuen but also owned land in Schattdorf.
