German family of musicians. The earliest professional musicians in the family were two brothers, (1) Fridolin Weber (i) and (2) Franz Anton Weber; their father, also Fridolin (1691–1754), is said to have been a singer, violinist, and organist. For further information on their ancestry, see below under (9) Carl Maria von Weber.
