Yes. The female equivalent of "Herr" is "Frau", thus the female equivalent of "Freiherr" is "Freifrau", whereas "Freiin" is the equivalent of "Fräulein". Freiherrin does not exist (normally, although I am sure there are some few instances, as there will be for almost every variation). |

: I think both could have been used

: been "Freifrau von Affenberg" (for
: the wife of the Freiherr) or "Freiin
: von Affenberg" (for his daughter).
: Is Freiin (for a daughter) more correct than
: Freiherrin? Doesn't the word Freiherrin
: exist in German?
