ex Imperio = or ex Imperium /i.e. Imperium romanum, Imperium romanun sacrum is the Latin form for "from the empire" [in german: "aus dem Reich"]. By "Imperio" was always understood the territory of the Holy Roman Empire [of German Nation; founded in 962]. Even if the "core" of the Imperio were the German states, this was much bigger than today Germany [including during the time some regions in today Holland, Belgia, Luxembourg, Czech, etc.]. Following the Thirty Years War [1618-1648], the Holy Roman Empire was almost an abstract concept. The emperor [with a single exception, always belonging to the House of Habsburg] was almost powerless. Still this concept will resist another 150 years [up to 6.08.1806]. So, "ex Imperio" does not provide any specific information on place of birth / origin and you can use the term "unknown" for the place of origin as well !
