The parents of Prinz Matzi von Grönland (1995, Bosco x Cäsi von Bosco) born in the years 1893 and 1894, were the oldest Dobermanns to be entered in one of the studbooks. Although it is uncertain who the breeder of Prinz Matzi was, it is a fact that the male came from the kennel "von Ilm-Athen", owner G. Krumpholz from Wikkerstedt near Apolda. When Prinz was show under in Berlin he was purchased by O. Göller. He later gave him to his friend O. Vorwerk in Hamburg.

Prinz Matzi was not a perfect Dobermann even for those days. Although he was the first Dobermann Sieger. He had a coarse and heavy body with long hair and undercoat. His head was very strong, especially his skull. His eyes were too light and his temperament was too wild. Characteristics he passed on to his descendants. One of the stories about him tells us that on the day of his arrival in Hamburg he attacked and killed a Great Dane who had just been bought by O. Vorwerk for 1100 German Marks. The dog was immediately returned to O. Göller in Apolda with the message "before you shoot him I want you to use him for breeding", which O. Göller did. After a few years Matzi was sold as a stud to Frankfurt where he sired some good local dogs, like Siegwart v. Hochheim. Although he was of no real importance in the founding of the breed.
