Clam-Martinic is a noble family from the former Habsburg Empire. It was established when Carl Josef, Count of Clam, a member of the old Austrian noble family Clam, married Maria Anna, Imperial Countess of Martinic (z Martinicz or Martinicové in Czech), a member of an old Czech Bohemian noble family claimed to be descended from the Vr?ovci family.[1]

The family originates from Berg near Henndorf am Wallersee and appeared under the name Berger or Perger. Around 1209 a Carinthian branch owned Höhenbergen castle near Völkermarkt. In 1524, the family acquired Clam Castle in Upper Austria, which to this day is owned by the family.
