INTRODUCTION

 

 

The territory of Alsace formed part of the duchy of Alemannia, one of the four original provinces of Germany which survived as an autonomous entity until it was defeated by the early Carolingian Franks in 746/47, at which time the Alemannic dukes were deposed and a large part of the Alemannic nobility killed at Canstatt, near Stuttgart[1].  During the late 7th and early 8th centuries, dukes are recorded in Alsace, although it is supposed that they were subordinate to the dukes of Alemannia. 

 

Alsace formed part of the kingdom of Lotharingia under the division of the Frankish empire agreed at the treaty of Verdun in 843.  The Annales Bertiniani record that Lothar II King of Lotharingia invested his son Hugues with the duchy of Alsace in 867[2].  Under the 870 treaty which divided Lotharingia between the East and West Frankish kingdoms "…in Elisatio comitatus II…" were assigned to Ludwig II "der Deutsche" King of the East Franks[3].  However, Charles II "le Chauve" King of the West Franks invaded Alsace after the death of King Lothar and Duke Hugues was obliged to submit to him.  The two Alsatian counties (identified as Sundgau and Nordgau) do not appear to have been considered as part of the duchy of Upper Lotharingia after its formation in the mid-10th century.  It is likely that Alsace at that time formed part of the duchy of Swabia.  Primary sources name the Grafen im Nordgau and Grafen im Sundgau as counts in Alsace between the 9th and 11th centuries.  After that time, the counties of Egisheim and Dachsburg emerged as the primary counties in Alsace.  The county of Ferrette (Pfirt) developed in southern Alsace in the early 12th century.

B.      DUKES in ALSACE (LATE 9th and LATE 10th CENTURIES)

 

 

1.         HUGUES, illegitimate son of LOTHAR II King of Lotharingia & his [mistress/second wife] Waldrada ([855/60]-after 895).  Duke of Alsace 867, until after Aug 869.  The Annales Bertiniani record that King Lothar invested "filioque suo de Waldrada Hugoni" with "ducatum Elisatium" in 867[78]Herimannus names "Hugonem, Lotharii regis ex Waldrada filium" when recording his rebellion in 879[79].  After his father's death, Charles II "le Chauve" King of the West Franks invaded Alsace and Hugues was obliged to submit to him. 

 

 

2.         UDO (-after 1 Jul 1004).  Duke in Alsace.  "…Uto dux…" witnessed the charter dated 20 May 999 under which "Otto…Romanorum imperator augustus" confirmed "Hemediec et Egilolfi fratrum" with rights to a market "in provincia Alsacia…Nortgeuui…Altorf" naming "Eberhardi comitis" and also witnessed by "…Liutfridus comes…"[80].  As Eberhard and Liutfried were the two known counts in Alsace at that date, in Nordgau and Sundgau respectively, the implication is the ducatus of "Uto" was also in Alsace and both counts held their fiefdoms from him.  This suggests that, at that time at least, Alsace was considered as a separate duchy from Swabia, whose duke was Hermann II [Konradiner] in 999.  Count in Alsace.  "Henricus…rex" confirmed prior concessions by "duce Rudolfo" of property in "Columbra et Hittinheim…in Alsatia…in comitatu Odonis comitis" to Kloster Peterlingen by charters dated 21 Oct 1003, specifying that this property previously belonged to "Guntramnus"[81].  "Henricus…rex" confirmed prior concessions by "duce Ruodolfo" of property in "Columbra et Hittinheim…in Alsatia…in comitatu Vdonis comitis" to Kloster Peterlingen by charter dated 1004, specifying that this property previously belonged to "Guntramnus", and adding property "in villa Badelesbach in pago Mortanouua et in comitatu Chuononis comitis cæteraque in Alsatia et in comitatu Odonis comitis"[82].  "Henricus…rex" granted hunting rights in "Alsacia…iuxta Renum in comitatu Utonis" to Adalbero Bishop of Basel by charter dated 1 Jul 1004[83]

 

 

 

 

Chapter 2.    GRAFEN im NORDGAU

 

 

Use of the names Hugo and Eberhard suggest that the Grafen im Nordgau were descended from the family of the Dukes in Alsace (Chapter 1) but the precise descent has not been traced in the primary sources which have so far been consulted in the preparation of this document.  The use of the name "Matfried" in this family during the later 10th and early 11th centuries suggests a connection with the "Matfriedinger" family who were counts of Metz and, later, dukes of Upper Lotharingia.  An indication that this may be correct is found in the reference in the Annalista Saxo to Bruno von Egisheim being "Conradi imperatoris consobrinus" when recording his election as Pope Leo IX[84], Emperor Konrad's mother being the sister of Gerhard and Adalbert Counts of Metz [Matfriedinger].  Too little information is known about the wives of the Nordgau counts to speculate sensibly about where the connection might be. 

 

 

1.         HUGO [IV] .  “Huc quondam comes” exchanged property with Weissenburg monastery by charter dated 2 Sep [821/22], subscribed by “Etih, Lantberti com, Ruadberti, Gerolti com, Uitoni com, Adadramno com, Rorione com, Ingiberti com, Gundharti com, Eggiharti com, Adalberti comite stabuli…[85]

 

2.         EBERHARD [III] (-after 898).  The Gesta Francorum records that "Notingum episcopum et Eburhardum comitum, missos Hludowici nepotis sui [regis]" were "received and heard" at a council held in Feb 858 at Ulm[86].  The Annales Fuldenses also name "Notingum episcopum et Eburhardum comitem" as missi of "Hludowici nepotis sui" at a council "in villa Alemanniæ Ulma" in Feb 858[87].  Graf im Nordgau 888.  "Arnolfus…rex" granted property "in pago Mortunouua…in comitatu Ebarhardi in locis Ouuanheim et Baldanheim" to "prespitero…Isanpreht" by charter dated 26 May 888[88].  Graf im oberen Aargau 891.  "Arnolfus…rex" granted property "in comitatu Eburhardi in superiore Argowe…in loco Bach" to the church of Strasbourg by charter dated 22 Apr 892[89].  Arnulf King of Gemany confirmed grants of property "in superiori Aragouue in comitatu Hebarhardi" to St Gallen by "nobilis matrona Pirin" by charter dated 26 Aug 894[90]m ADELINDA, daughter of ---.  The primary source which confirms her marriage has not yet been identified.  Eberhard [IV] & his wife had one child: 

a)         HUGO [V] (-940).  The Vita Sancti Deicoli names Hugo son of "comes…de Alsaciæ partibus nomine Heberardus"[91]Graf im Nordgau 910. 

-        see below

 

 

The precise relationship between the following person and the Grafen im Nordgau is not known. 

1.         [son/daughter .  The Vita Sancti Deicoli names "Waldrada…Heberardo comitis consanguinitatis" as concubine of Lothaire II King of Lotharingia[92], Waldrada being described in another source as sister of Gunther Archbishop of Köln.  The precise relationship with the Alsatian Grafen im Nordgau is unknown.  It is provisionally represented here as through the family of the archbishop's mother, whose name and origin are otherwise unknown, but this is solely for the purpose of introducing the hyperlink to the document HOLLAND & FRISIA and must not be assumed to be correct.  m ---, [son/daughter] of ---.] 

 

 

HUGO [V], son of EBERHARD [III] Graf im Nordgau & his wife Adelinda --- (-940).  The Vita Sancti Deicoli names Hugo son of "comes…de Alsaciæ partibus nomine Heberardus"[93]Graf im Nordgau 910.  "Hludowicus…rex" confirmed privileges to Kloster St Gallen by charter dated 24 Jun 903 in which among "fidelium nostrum" was listed "comites…Hug"[94].  Ludwig "das Kind" King of Germany granted property "in pago et comitatu Albinense" to "vassalli Hugonis comitis…Bernardo seu Rathfrido ac Reginando" by charter dated 15 Oct 910[95].  "Chuonradus…rex" granted property "in loco Munichinga in pago Chlethgeuue" to Kloster St Gallen by charter dated 11 Mar 912 at the request of "comitum quoque Erchangarii et Chuonradi, Odalrici, Hugonis"[96].  "Chuonradus…rex" confirmed privileges to Kloster Murbach by charter dated 12 Mar 913 with the consent of "fidelium nostrorum Hathonis, Salomonis, Thiodolfi, Hildini, Einhardi, Erchangarii, Chuonradi, Hugonis, Ottonis, Heinrici, Bopponis, Udalrici, Eberhardi"[97].  He became a monk. 

m HILDEGARD, daughter of ---.  The Vita Sancti Deicoli names "Hildegardis…comitissa" as wife of Hugo[98]

Hugo [V] & his wife had [four] children: 

1.         EBERHARD [IV] (-[18 Dec 972/973]).  The Vita Sancti Deicoli names "primogenitus Heberardus, secundus Hugo, tercio Guntramnus" as the three sons of Hugo[99]Graf im Nordgau 959/67.  "Otto…rex" granted property "Luterhaa" which he received from "filiis Hugonis Heberhardo et Hugone" to Kloster Alanesberg by charter dated 6 Apr 959[100].  "Otto…imperator augustus" confirmed donations of property "de locis Ozenheim, Tetingen…in pago Moiinegouwe in comitatu Eberhardi comitis" by "nobis nepos et equivocus noster Otto dux Sweuorum" to "sancti Petri Ascaffaburg" by charter dated 29 Aug 975[101], although it is not known whether this refers to the same Graf Eberhard.  m ---.  The identity of Eberhard´s wife is not known with certainty.  She has been identified as Liutgarde, widow of Adalbert Graf [von Metz], daughter of WIGERICH [III] Graf im Bidgau & his wife Cunegondis ---.  The only basis for this hypothesis is the charter dated 8 Apr 960 under which "Liutgardis" donated property "in comitatu Nithegowe cui Godefridus comes preesse", which she inherited from "parentibus meis Wigerico et Cunegunda", to St Maximin at Trier "pro remedio…parentum meorum, seniorum quoque meorum Alberti et Everhardi vel filiorum meorum"[102].  Eberhard [IV] Graf im Nordgau appears to have been the only contemporary Count Eberhard who could be identified as Liutgarde´s second husband.  The hypothesis is accepted by Poull[103] and Europäische Stammtafeln[104].  Rösch[105] is more cautious, referring to Liutgarde's second husband as "Eberhard" without citing his origin.  Wegener[106] assumes that the wording of the 960 charter means that "Alberti et Everhardi" were Liutgard's successive husbands and that both were deceased at the date of the charter, although this is not necessarily the only interpretation of the text.  He argues that Liutgarde's second husband could not therefore have been Eberhard [IV] Graf im Nordgau, who died in [972/73], and suggests that he was Eberhard Duke of Bavaria [Liutpoldinger].  However, as the last reference to Duke Eberhard is in 938, this would mean that he was Luitgarde's first husband, which appears unlikely if the order of the names of her two husbands in the charter was chronological.  The Chronicle of Alberic de Trois-Fontaines provides some interesting corroboration for Liutgarde's marriage to Graf Eberhard [IV] by recording "comes Hugo de Daburg, pater sancti Leonis pape" as "consobrinus" of "imperator Conradus"[107].  If the origin of Liutgarde's two husbands were as shown here, Hugo [IX] Graf von Egisheim would have been second cousin once removed of Emperor Konrad, the emperor being the great-grandson of Liutgarde by her supposed first marriage, while Hugo would have been her grandson by her second marriage.  Eberhard [IV] & his wife had one child: 

a)         HUGO [VII] "Raucus" ([after 945]-before 986).  The Notitiæ Altorfenses names "Eberhardus comes…filius eius Hugo, qui erat aliquantulum raucus", specifying that he founded the monastery of Altorff where his father was buried[108]Graf im Nordgau 951/973.

2.         HUGO [VI] .  The Vita Sancti Deicoli names "primogenitus Heberardus, secundus Hugo, tercio Guntramnus" as the three sons of Hugo[109].  "Otto…rex" confirmed the immunities of Kloster Essen including over land "excepta in loco Ruoldinghus quam Eggihart et eius coniunx Rikilt" possessed by hereditary right and in land "in comitatu Ecberti et Cobbonis" by charter dated 15 Jan 947, signed by "Heinrici fratris regis, Herimanni ducis, Cuonradi comitis, Erenfridi comitis, Gebehardi comitis, Ekkihardi comitis, Hugonis comitis"[110], although it is not certain this refers to Hugo [VI].  "Otto…rex" granted property "Luterhaa" which he received from "filiis Hugonis Heberhardo et Hugone" to Kloster Alanesberg by charter dated 6 Apr 959[111].   

3.         GUNTRAM (-after 952).  The Vita Sancti Deicoli names "primogenitus Heberardus, secundus Hugo, tercio Guntramnus" as the three sons of Hugo[112].  The Notitiæ Altorfenses names "Guntramus filius Hugonis" in relation to a donation of property to the monastery "pro anime sue remedio"[113].  Jackman refers to "extraordinary confiscations…imposed on the rebel Guntram" in 952 but does not cite the primary source[114].  "Otto…rex" donated several named properties "in pago Elisaza…et in comitatu Bernhardi comitis…in villis Brumagad, et in Mumenheim et in Grioz et in Walahon et in Bernnesheim et in Moreseim", confiscated from "Guntrammus", to Kloster Lorsch by charter dated 11 Aug 953[115], presumably as a result of this event.  "Otto…rex" donated property "in ducatu Alamannico in comitatu Burchardi ducis Durgeuue…in villa Askinza" which had been confiscated from "Gundranmus comes" to Kloster Einsiedeln by charter dated 6 Jan 958[116].  "Otto…rex" granted property "in locis…Cholumbra et Hitinheim" which "Guntramnus in Hillisazaas…in comitatu in partibus Hillisazius Ruodolfo prænominato" held to "fideli nostro Ruodolfo" Kloster Alanesberg by charter dated 6 Apr 959[117]

4.         [ADELA (-961).  The Annales Hanoniæ record the death in 961 of "Adela comitissa Montensis…uxor Ragineri comitis"[118], although as this passage follows closely on those dealing with the exploits of "Raginerus Longi-colli" it is unclear to which Count Reginar the Annales are referring at this point.  The primary source which confirms her parentage has not yet been identified.  m REGINAR [III] Comte de Hainaut, son of REGINAR [II] Comte de Hainaut & his wife --- (920-973).]

m --- ([950]-).  The name and origin of Count Hugo's wife are unknown.  Her birth date is estimated from the estimated birth date range of her son Hugo. 

Hugo [VII] & his wife had four children:   

1.         EBERHARD [V] (-21 Jun 1016 or after).  The Notitiæ Altorfenses names "comitis Eberhardi sive comitis Hugonis vel istorum fratrum Gerhardi et Maffridi", and also "Bertha comitissa uxor Eberhardi" in relation to a donation of property to the monastery[121].  Graf im Nordgau.  "Otto…rex" confirmed rights of Kloster Peterlingen in "duas villas in Alsazia sitas…Columbra in comitatu Liutfridi comitis…Hittinheim in comitatu Eberhardi comitis" by charter dated 25 Oct 986[122].  "Otto…Romanorum imperator augustus" confirmed "Hemediec et Egilolfi fratrum" with rights to a market "in provincia Alsacia…Nortgeuui…Altorf" by charter dated 20 May 999 which names "Eberhardi comitis" and is witnessed by "Gerhardus, Mathfridus, Uto dux, Liutfridus comes, Adelhardus, Unipertus et Marguuardus"[123].  "Heinricus…Romanorum imperator augustus" granted property "ab Eberhardo comite iniuste sibi usurpatum" to Kloster Luders by charter dated 21 Jun 1016[124]m [BERTA, daughter of ---].  The Notitiæ Altorfenses names "Bertha comitissa uxor Eberhardi" in relation to her donation to Strasbourg St Marie[125], although it is not entirely clear from the context that her husband was Eberhard [VI]. 

2.         GERHARD .  The Notitiæ Altorfenses names "comitis Eberhardi sive comitis Hugonis vel istorum fratrum Gerhardi et Maffridi"[126].  "Gerhardus, Mathfridus…" were the first two subscribers of the charter dated 20 May 999 under which "Otto…Romanorum imperator augustus" confirmed "Hemediec et Egilolfi fratrum" with rights to a market "in provincia Alsacia…Nortgeuui…Altorf" naming "Eberhardi comitis"[127].  It is possible that they were Eberhard's brothers but this is not certain. 

3.         MATFRIED .  The Notitiæ Altorfenses names "comitis Eberhardi sive comitis Hugonis vel istorum fratrum Gerhardi et Maffridi"[128].  "Gerhardus, Mathfridus…" were the first two subscribers of the charter dated 20 May 999 under which "Otto…Romanorum imperator augustus" confirmed "Hemediec et Egilolfi fratrum" with rights to a market "in provincia Alsacia…Nortgeuui…Altorf" naming "Eberhardi comitis"[129].  It is possible that they were Eberhard's brothers but this is not certain. 

4.         HUGO [VIII] ([970/75]-).  The Notitiæ Altorfenses names "comitis Eberhardi sive comitis Hugonis vel istorum fratrum Gerhardi et Maffridi"[130].  His birth date range is estimated from the birth of his son Pope Leo in 1002.  Graf im Nordgau und zu Egisheim.

A.      LIUTFRIDE (FAMILY of HUGUES Comte de TOURS)

 

 

According to Thegan, this family descended from the early 8th century dukes in Alsace (see Chapter 1.A) as he refers to the wife of Emperor Lothar as "filiam Hugi comitis, qui erat de stirpe cuiusdam ducis nomine Etih"[131].  The precise relationship has not yet been identified from the primary sources so far consulted. 

 

 

1.         LIUTFRIED [I] (-after 11 Jan 813).  "Imma" donated property to Fulda by charter dated 11 Jan 813, subscribed by "Liutfrid comes"[132]

 

2.         HUGUES (-20 Oct 837, bur Monza).  Thegan refers to the wife of Emperor Lothar as "filiam Hugi comitis, qui erat de stirpe cuiusdam ducis nomine Etih" and in the following paragraph names her "Irmingarda"[133].  "Karolus…augustus…imperator Romanum…rex Francorum et Langobardorum" donated property "in pago Andegavino in loco Laniaco…et in pago Rodonico" to Kloster Prüm by charter dated 28 Apr 807 which names "Hugo comes"[134].  Einhard names "Haido episcopus Baslensus et Hugus comes Toronicus et Aio Langobardus de Foroiluii" as imperial missi who met the missi from Constantinople in 811[135].  The Annales Fuldenses record that the emperor sent "Haitonem Basilensem episcopus et Hug comitem Turonicum et Aio Langobardum de Aquileia" as missi to Constantinople in 811 to confirm the peace "cum Niceforo"[136].  The Gesta Francorum names "Hug comitem Turonicum" in 811[137].  Timiolus and abbot of St Julien d'Auxerre 811.  Thegan's Vita Hludowici Imperatoris records that Emperor Louis was met at "Compendium" by "Pippinus filius eius cum magnatis primis patris sui…Hug et Matfrido…Gotefrido"[138].  Comte de Tours, until 828.  The Vita Hludowici Imperatoris names "Hugonem et Mathfridum comites" as missi of Pepin King of Aquitaine [in 827][139].  dux de Locate, near Milan.  Thegan's Vita Hludowici Imperatoris records that "Hlutharius" submitted to his father Emperor Louis I [in 836] followed by "socer eius Hug timidus"[140].  The Vita Hludowici Imperatoris records that "Wala Corbeiensis abbas, Matfridus, Hugo, Lantbertus, Godefridus, itemque filius eius Godefridus, Agimbertus comes Pertensis…sed et Richardus" died between "Kal Sep usque ad missam sancti Martini" [in 836][141].  The Gesta Francorum records that "Lantbertus et Hugus" were among the "plureo ex primoribus Italiæ" who were killed at Ticino "837 III Kal Ian noctu octies" when "tremuisse perhibetur"[142].  The Annales Fuldenses also record the earthquake at Ticino in Italy "837 III Kal Ian" in which "plures ex primoribus Italiæ" were killed including "Lantbertus et Hugus"[143]m AVA, daughter of ---.   Her marriage is inferred from the testament of her supposed son-in-law "Gerardus [comes]" who names "coniugis meæ…Berthæ…genitoribus atque parentibus…Luthardi et Grimildis atque…Hugonis et Bavæ…filiis et filiabus ipsorum"[144].  Hugues & his wife had six children: 

a)         ERMENGARDE (-20 Mar 851, bur Kloster Erstein, near Strasbourg).  Thegan refers to the wife of Emperor Lothar as "filiam Hugi comitis, qui erat de stirpe cuiusdam ducis nomine Etih" and in the following paragraph names her "Irmingarda"[145].  The Annales Xantenses record the marriage in 821 of "Ludewicus imperator…filio suo Lothario" and "Ermingardam filiam Hugonis comitis Turonicorum"[146].  The Chronicle of Alberic de Trois-Fontaines names "Ermengardis filia…Hugonis Provincie ducis vel comitis" as wife of "Lotharius imperator"[147].  She founded Kloster Erstein in Alsace 849.  m (Thionville, Moselle mid-Oct 821) Emperor LOTHAR I, son of Emperor LOUIS I "le Pieux" & his first wife Ermengardis [de Hesbaye] (795-Kloster Prüm 29 Sep 855, bur Kloster Prüm).  He was installed as LOTHAR I King of Lotharingia in 843. 

b)         ADELAIS (-after 866).  The Miraculis Sancti Germani name "Adheleid" as wife of "Chuonradus princeps"[148].  A poem by Walahfridus Strabus records the epitaph of "Adelheidam"[149].  The primary source which confirms her parentage has not yet been identified.  Some secondary works[150] assert that the second husband of Adelais was Robert "le Fort" [Capet].  If this is correct, Adelais must have been Comte Robert's second or third wife as Conrad died after 862 by which date Robert's known children were already born.  The assertion appears based on the Chronicle of St Bénigne de Dijon which names "duo filii Rotberti Andegavorum comitis, frs Hugonis abbatis, senior Odo…Robertus alter"[151].  Settipani states that the passage is a 12th century interpolation and has little historical value, although he does suggest that it is likely that the wife of Comte Robert was a close relation of Adelais without providing the basis for this statement[152].  A family connection between Comte Robert and Conrad Comte de Paris is also suggested by the former being invested with the county of Auxerre in 865, after this county was confiscated from the latter (as recorded by Hincmar[153]), on the assumption that there was some basis of heredity behind the transmission of counties in France at that time (which is probable, but remains unproven).  m CONRAD "l'Ancien" Comte de Paris, son of WELF I Graf in Swabia & his wife Heilwig --- (-22 Mar [862/66]).    

c)         BERTA (-[6 Nov] 877).  Her parentage is confirmed by her husband's testament under which "Gerardus [comes]" names "coniugis meæ…Berthæ…genitoribus atque parentibus…Luthardi et Grimildis atque…Hugonis et Bavæ…filiis et filiabus ipsorum"[154].  Pope John VIII recalls "Gerardus comes…cum Berta quondam conjuge sua" as founders of the monastery referred to in his letter[155].  Charles II "le Chauve" King of the West Franks confirmed the foundation of the monastery "in pago Avalensi in parrochia Augustudunensis civitatis in loco…Virziliacus" by "Gerardus…comes", with the consent of "coniugis sue Berthæ", by charter dated 6 Jan 868[156].  The Chronico Vezeliacensi records that "Berta comitissa hujus loci fundatrix" died in 844 and was buried "apud Pulterias"[157], although the year is incorrect.  The 13th century obituary of the Eglise primatiale de Lyon records the death "VIII Id Nov" of "Berta comitissa"[158]m GERARD [de Roussillon] Comte de Vienne, son of [LIUTHARD & his wife Grimhild ---] (-[11 Feb or 4 Mar] 874, bur Avignon). 

d)         HUGUES (-before 25 Jan 835, bur Milan San Ambrogio).  The primary source which confirms his parentage has not yet been identified.  

e)         LIUTFRIED [II] (-[864/66]).  The Annales Bertiniani name "Liutfrido avunculo suo et Waltario" recording their support for "Hlotharius [rex]" when he purported to marry "Waldradam concubinam" in 862 and crown her[159].  The Annales Alamannicorum record "Liutfridis Hugonis Alsatiæ filius" among those who swore allegiance in 864[160]

f)          BERENGAR (-838).  The Vita Hludowici Imperatoris names "Beringarii H. Turonici quondam comitis filii" as a candidate to govern Septimania, in competition with Bernard, but that he died young [in 838][161]

Lantgravius Alsatie” confirmed the privileges of “monasterii Sancti Trudperti...in Nigra Silva” founded by “prædecessorum et progenitorum nostrorum Lutfridi comitis, Otperti et Ramperti”, by charter dated 1186, which quotes the earlier charter dated 21 Feb 903 (“anno III regnante Ludevico filio Arnolfi, sub comite Wolfilino”) under which “Luitfridus...et fratre meo Hugone” confirmed the foundation by “antecessoribus meis Otperto...et Ramperto”, with the consent of “filiis meis Hunfrido (...in Norgauwe), Luitfrido (...in Sungawa), Hugone (...in Eginsheim)[176].  "Hludowicus…rex" confirmed privileges to Kloster St Gallen by charter dated 24 Jun 903 in which among "fidelium nostrum" was listed "comites…Liutfrid"[177].  The Chronicon Laureshamense records an exchange of property between "Hattonis archiepiscopi et abbatis de Riamnis" dated "904 XVIII Kal Iul" witnessed by "…Liutfridus comes"[178].  "Hludowicus…rex" confirmed an exchange of properties between Kloster Fulda and Kloster Echternach after consulting "fidelium nostrorum comitum vero Kebeharti, Liutpoldi, Burcharti, Eginonis, Liutfredi, Iringi et Cunpoldi" by charter dated 19 Mar 907[179].  "Chuonradus…rex" made donations by charter dated 5 Mar 912 with the consent of "fidelium nostrorum comitum vero Sigihardi, Arnolfi, Erchangarii, Odalrici, Perchtoldi, Chuonradi, Herimanni, Luitfredi atque Iringi"[180].  Konrad I King of Germany granted property "in pago Lobotungouue in comitatu Liutfridi comitis" to the monk Sigulf of Heiligenberg, and after his death to Kloster Lorsch, at the request of "Erkangeri comitis ac…Erlolfi et Folnandi" by charter dated 23 Aug 912[181].  The Annales Alamannicorum record that "Erchanger, Perahtolt et Liutfrid" were killed in 916[182], although it is not known whether this refers to the same Liutfried.  m ---.  The name of Liutfried´s wife is not known.  Liutfried [III] & his wife had four children: 

a)         HUNFRIED .  “Lutfridus” donated property “quod ego et fratre meo Hugone in partem hereditariam possedi”, with the consent of “filiis meis Huntfrido, Lutfrido, Hugone”, to St Trudpert´s monastery, by charter dated 21 Feb 903[183].  “Albertus comes de Habesburg.

1.         LIUTOLD (-before 1044)Graf im Sundgau.  He held the castle of Montbéliard.  Hlawitschka suggests that he was Liutold, son of Konrad I Duke of Swabia [Konradiner] & his wife Richlint [Regenlindis][197], but this assumes that the son of Duke Konrad of this name existed in the first place (the doubts concerning this are discussed in the document SWABIA DUKES).  m WILLIBIRG, daughter of [UNRUOCH & his wife ---].  Her marriage is confirmed by the charter dated 1044 under which her son "Hunfredus…non infirmus ortus natalibus…Argentinensis ecclesia canonia" appointed the church of Strasbourg as his heir, excluding "patris mei Lutoldo meeque matris Willebirge fratris quoque mei chare memorie Wottonis" who had attempted to disinherit him[198].  Ortlieb's Chronicon of Zwiefalten names "Willibirgæ de Mumpilgart seu de Wulvelingen" as wife of "comitis Liuthoni"[199].  Jackman[200] speculates that Willibirg was the daughter of Adalbert II associate King of Italy & his wife Gerberge de Chalon, his reasoning being the onomastic connection between the Ivrean name 'Berengar', imported into the family of Liutold, and the use of 'Willa' among the ancestors of Adalbert King of Italy.  However, another origin is suggested by the necrology of Zwiefalten which records the death "XIV Kal Dec" of "Unruoch proavus Liutoldi comitis"[201].  If this great grandfather were the father of Willibirg, it may also explain how the name Berenger entered the family, assuming that Unruoch was related to the Unruochingi Counts of Friulia.  Liutold & his wife had seven children: 

a)         HADAMOT .  She is named as daughter of Liutold and Willibirg in Europäische Stammtafeln[202] but the primary source on which this is based has not been identified. 

b)         GERBERGA (-1061).  She is named as daughter of Liutold and Willibirg in Europäische Stammtafeln[203] but the primary source on which this is based has not been identified.  Abbess of Geisenfeld. 

c)         LIUTGARD .  She is named as daughter of Liutold and Willibirg, with her husband, in Europäische Stammtafeln[204] but the primary source on which this is based has not been identified.  m WERINGAND, son of --- (-1037/[1052]). 

d)         OTTO (-[1025/44]).  "Hunfredus…non infirmus ortus natalibus…Argentinensis ecclesia canonia" appointed the church of Strasbourg as his heir, excluding "patris mei Lutoldo meeque matris Willebirge fratris quoque mei chare memorie Wottonis" who had attempted to disinherit him, by charter dated 1044[205].  "Heinricus…Romanorum imperator augustus" donated property "Chonenheim…in pago Alsaciæ in comitatu Ottonis comitis" to Kloster Erstein by charter dated 4 Nov 1023[206].  "Heinricus…Romanorum imperator augustus" donated property "in loco Steinebrunno in pago Suntgouue in comitatu Ottonis" to Kloster Erstein by charter dated 15 Jul 1025[207]m ---.  Otto & his wife had [two possible children]: 

i)          [BERENGAR (-after 1048).  "Heinricus…Romanorum imperator augustus" confirmed property "…in pago Elyzazen in villa Kembyz in comitatu Beringeri comitis" to the cathedral of Basel by charter dated 1 Jun 1048[208].  Graf im Sundgau.  Jackman speculates that he was the brother of Louis I Comte de Mousson as his name is the same as that of his supposed paternal uncle[209].] 

ii)         [HILDEGARD ([1030]-).  This speculative affiliation is suggested by Jackman[210] who emphasises that it could provide an explanation based on heredity for the appointment of Hildegard's son, Friedrich von Büren, as Duke of Swabia in 1079.  This assumes the need for such a hereditary basis, whereas it appears that the duchy of Swabia was awarded on the basis of the political or economic power of the nominee.  In addition, if heredity had been the basis for the nomination, there would clearly have been other candidates with a senior claim.  Decker-Hauff[211] suggests that Hildegard, wife of Friedrich von Büren, was the daughter of Louis de Mousson, but Jackman says that this should be rejected on chronological grounds given the birth of Sophie de Lotharingia, wife of Louis de Mousson, in [1020] which means that she could not have been the grandmother of Friedrich I Duke of Swabia who was born in [1050].  The wife of Friedrich von Büren is not named in Europäische Stammtafeln[212]m ([1047]) FRIEDRICH von Büren, son of FRIEDRICH Pfalzgraf von Schwaben & his wife --- (-[1068]).] 

e)         HUNFRIED (-22 Aug 1051).  Ortlieb's Chronicon of Zwiefalten names "Hunfridi Ravennantiam archiepiscopi" as brother of "Adelheidem, filiam comitis Liuthoni ac Willibirgæ…"[213].  Canon at Strasbourg 1044.  "Hunfredus…non infirmus ortus natalibus…Argentinensis ecclesia canonia" appointed the church of Strasbourg as his heir, excluding "patris mei Lutoldo meeque matris Willebirge fratris quoque mei chare memorie Wottonis" who had attempted to disinherit him, by charter dated 1044[214].  Archbishop of Ravenna 1044.  Imperial Chancellor for Italy 1045.  He founded Kloster Embrach.  The Herimanni Augiensis Chronicon records the death in 1051 of "Ravennæ quoque archiepiscopus Hunfridus" by poison[215].  The necrology of Zwiefalten records the death "X Kal Sep" of "Hunfrit eps Ravenne avunculus Liutoldi comitis"[216]

f)          BERENGAR (-killed Rome 1027, bur Rome, St Peter's).  Wipo names "iuvenis…Berengarius filius Liutoldi comitis de Alamannia" when recording that he was killed in the riots which followed the coronation of Emperor Konrad II in 1027 in Rome and was buried in the tomb of Emperor Otto II[217]

g)         ADELHEID (-29 Aug [1065], bur Strasbourg Cathedral[218]).  Ortlieb's Chronicon of Zwiefalten names "filiam comitis Liuthoni ac Willibirgæ de Mumpilgart seu de Wulvelingin Adelheidam" as wife of "Rudolfus", specifying that she was sister of "Hunfridi Ravennantiam archiepiscopi"[219].  A charter dated to [1053] records that "sue sororis Adelheide, eiusque filiorum" confirmed the donations to Strasbourg by "Hunfrit Argentinensis ecclesie…canonicus, postea…Ravennas archiepiscopi" after first challenging them[220]m RUDOLF Graf von Achalm, son of --- (-24 Sep ----, bur Dettingen, transferred to Zwiefalten). 

 

 

 

 

Chapter 4.    OTHER EARLY COUNTS in ALSACE

 

 

 

1.         BERNHARD [I] (-after 4 Jan 896).  King Zwentibold confirmed Kloster Münster in Gregoriental with property including in "Iebinesheim, Sundhoua…in comitatu Bernhardi comitis in pago Alsacensi" by charter dated 4 Jan 896[221]

 

2.         BERNHARD [II] (-after 11 Aug 953).  "Otto…rex" donated several named properties "in pago Elisaza…et in comitatu Bernhardi comitis…in villis Brumagad, et in Mumenheim et in Grioz et in Walahon et in Bernnesheim et in Moreseim", confiscated from "Guntrammus", to Kloster Lorsch by charter dated 11 Aug 953[222].  The comitatus of Bernhard in Alsace is not described in the 953 charter as being in either Nordgau or Sundgau.  Guntram, named in the charter, may have been the younger son of Eberhard/Hugo counts in Nordgau (see above).  It is not known whether Guntram's older brother, Eberhard [IV], was also implicated in his brother's rebellion.  Subsequent mentions of Eberhard [IV] and his descendants as counts suggest that the property confiscation was limited to Guntram.  It is therefore more likely that Bernhard held another county in Alsace, at the same time as Eberhard [IV], although its precise geographical location is not known. 

 

3.         RUDOLF (-after 14 Apr 959).  "Otto…rex" granted property "in locis…Cholumbra et Hitinheim" which "Guntramnus in Hillisazaas…in comitatu in partibus Hillisazius Ruodolfo prænominato" held to "fideli nostro Ruodolfo" Kloster Alanesberg by charter dated 6 Apr 959[223]

 

4.         WEZILO (-after 1027).  "Chonradus…Romanorum imperator augustus" confirmed property "in Alsatia et in comitatibus Gisilberti et Wezilonis comitum" to Kloster Peterlingen by charter dated 1027[224]same person as…?  WEZILO (-after [1047]).  "Heinricus…Romanorum imperator augustus" granted property "in villa Subenhara in pago Hamaland in comitatu Wecelonis comitis" to "fideli nostro Anselmo" by an undated charter, grouped with charters dated 1047 in the compilation[225].  It is not certain that Wezilo in Hamaland, in the northern part of Lower Lotharingia, and Wezilo in Alsace are the same individual.  However, "Gisilberti" in the 1027 charter was probably Giselbert Comte de Looz, another Lower Lotharingian territory.  This suggests that the Alsatian territories of Wezilo and Giselbert may have represented only a minor part of their respective landholdings, their main bases being in Lower Lotharingia. 

 

 

 

 

Chapter 5.    GRAFEN von EGISHEIM und DAGSBURG

 

 

A.      GRAFEN von EGISHEIM und DAGSBURG (ETICHONEN)

 

 

HUGO [VIII], son of HUGO [VII] "Raucus" Graf im Nordgau & his wife --- ([970/75][226]-).  The Notitiæ Altorfenses names "comitis Eberhardi sive comitis Hugonis vel istorum fratrum Gerhardi et Maffridi"[227].  His birth date range is estimated from the birth of his son Pope Leo in 1002.  Graf im Nordgau und zu Egisheim

m HEILWIG von Dagsburg, daughter of LUDWIG Graf von Dagsburg & his wife --- (-1046).  The Vita Leonis names "patre Hugone, matre Heilewide" as parents of Pope Leo IX[228].  Her parentage is confirmed by the Chronique of Jean de Bayon which names "Ludovico comite de Dagesburg, avo S. Leonis papæ noni" as founder of the monastery of Saint-Quirin[229].  It is possible that she was related to Emperor Konrad II: the Annalista Saxo names [her son] Bruno "Conradi inperatoris consobrinus…oriundus de Alsatia ex castello…Egenesheim" when recording his election as Pope[230].  The precise relationship has not been traced and it is possible that it was through Bruno´s maternal family. 

Hugo [VIII] & his wife had [eight] children: 

1.         GERHARD [I] (-killed in battle 1038).  His parentage is confirmed by the charter dated 18 Nov 1050 under which Pope Leo IX donated property to Heiligenkreuz Kloster in Woffenheim, near Egisheim, naming "patris mei Hugonis et matris meæ Heilwigdis, amborumque fratrum meorum Gerardi et Hugonis…iam defunctorum" and "nepoti meo Heinrico, castrum Egensheim"[231]Graf von Egisheimm KUNIZA, neptis of RUDOLF III King of Burgundy, daughter of ---.  She is recorded in Europäische Stammtafeln as neptis of RUDOLF III King of Burgundy[232] but the primary source on which this statement is based has not yet been identified.  1038. 

2.         [MATHILDE .  The Gesta Episcoporum Tullensium names "Udonis" as successor of Bruno as Bishop of Toul and "pater eius comes Riquinus ex Reubariorum regione ortus, mater Mathildis ex Alemannia…genus"[233].  The wife of Richwin may have been the daughter of Hugo [VIII], if it is correct that her son Louis was the same person as Louis Comte de Mousson, and also if it is correct that Pope Leo IX was the maternal uncle of the latter as suggested by Picard[234].  If this is correct, Mathilde would have been one of her parents´ older children considering the probable birth date of her son Louis.  m RICHWIN Comte de Charpeigne, son of LOUIS [I] & his wife --- ([980/90]-after 2 May 1028).] 

3.         HUGO [IX] (-[1046/18 Nov 1049]).  His parentage is confirmed by the charter dated 18 Nov 1050 under which Pope Leo IX donated property to Heiligenkreuz Kloster in Woffenheim, near Egisheim, naming "patris mei Hugonis et matris meæ Heilwigdis, amborumque fratrum meorum Gerardi et Hugonis…iam defunctorum" and "nepoti meo Heinrico, castrum Egensheim"[235]Graf von Dachsburgm MATHILDE, daughter of ---.  Pope Leo IX donated property to the abbey of Hesse by charter dated to [1050] which names “patrueles nostros comites Mathfridum et bonæ memoriæ Gerhardum, eiusque uxorem...Cunizam...fratrem nostrum Hugonem...domnæ Mathildis [...uxoris fratris nostri Hugonis prædicti] et filii eius Henrici nostri quondam nepotis” who was buried at the abbey and “pater noster Hugo[236].  Carutti identifies her as Mathilde, daughter of Conrad I King of Burgundy & his second wife Mathilde de France [Carolingian], but he cites no primary source on which this hypothesis is based[237].  Hugo [IX] & his wife had two children: 

a)         HEINRICH [I] (-28 Jun [before 1050], bur Hesse abbey).  Pope Leo IX donated property to the abbey of Hesse by charter dated to [1050] which names “patrueles nostros comites Mathfridum et bonæ memoriæ Gerhardum, eiusque uxorem...Cunizam...fratrem nostrum Hugonem...domnæ Mathildis [...uxoris fratris nostri Hugonis prædicti] et filii eius Henrici nostri quondam nepotis” who was buried at the abbey and “pater noster Hugo[238]Graf von Egisheim und Dachsburg

-        see below

b)         GERBERGA .  The primary source which confirms her parentage has not yet been identified.   Abbess of Hesse[239]

4.         BRUNO (21 Jun 1002-Rome 19 Apr 1054).  The Chronicle of Alberic de Trois-Fontaines names "sancti Leonis pape" as son of "comes Hugo de Daburg"[240].  The Annales Argentinenses record the birth of "Leo Papa, qui et Bruno, de castro Egenheim" in 1002[241].  The Annalista Saxo names Bruno "Conradi inperatoris consobrinus…oriundus de Alsatia ex castello…Egenesheim", when recording his election as Pope[242].  Bruno´s precise relationship with Emperor Konrad II has not been ascertained.  Canon at Toul.  Bishop of Toul 1027 until 1051.  The Gesta Episcoporum Tullensium records that “Bruno”, who was later elected as Pope Leo IX, succeeded as bishop of Toul[243].  The Chronicle of Alberic de Trois-Fontaines records the election of "Bruno Tullensis episcopus…filius comitis Hugonis Daburgensis" as Pope Leo IX[244].  He was elected as Pope LEO IX in 1049.  Pope Leo IX donated property to the abbey of Hesse by charter dated to [1050] which names “patrueles nostros comites Mathfridum et bonæ memoriæ Gerhardum, eiusque uxorem...Cunizam...fratrem nostrum Hugonem...domnæ Mathildis [...uxoris fratris nostri Hugonis prædicti] et filii eius Henrici nostri quondam nepotis” who was buried at the abbey and “pater noster Hugo[245]

5.         ADELHEID .  Her origin is deduced from the Annalista Saxo naming "comitem Adalbertum" as son of the sister of Pope Leo IX[246], and more specifically the Historia Hirsaugiensis Monasterii which names "Leo papa avunculus eiusdem Adalberti [de Kalwa]"[247], but her name is given in neither of these sources.  m ADALBERT [I] Graf im Ufgau [Calw], son of --- (-[1046/49]). 

6.         GERTRUD (-21 Jul 1077).  The Annales Stadenses refers to the mother of "Ida [de Elsthorpe]" as "sororis Leonis papa qui et Bruno"[248].  The Libro Memoriarum Sancti Blasii records the death in Jul 1077 of "Ghertrudis marchionissa senior"[249]m LIUDOLF Markgraf von Friesland, son of BRUNO [I] [von Braunschweig] & his wife Gisela of Swabia ([1003/05]-23 Apr 1038). 

7.         [daughter .  A possible daughter of Hugo [VIII] is shown as possible wife of Otto in Europäische Stammtafeln[250], but the primary source on which this is based has not so far been identified.  m OTTO Graf im Deutzgau, son of EZZO Pfalzgraf of Lotharingia & his wife Mathilde of Germany (-Tomburg 7 Sep 1047).  He succeeded in 1035 as OTTO Pfalzgraf von Lothringen.  He relinquished the Pfalzgrafschaft in 1045 when he was installed as OTTO Duke of Swabia.]

a)         HEILWIG (-29 Jan before 1126, bur Belval).  The Chronicle of Alberic de Trois-Fontaines refers to the wife of "Gerardum…primus comes Wanderi Montis" as "filiam comitis de Daburc, neptem sancti Leonis papa" but does not name her or her father[256].  Heiress of Egisheim.  “Helwigis comitissa, filia comitis Gerhardi de castro Egensheim…cum filiis ambobus laycis Hugone maiore et minore Udalrico” donated property to the church of Strasbourg by charter dated 1118[257]m ([1080]) as his second wife, GERARD de Lorraine Comte de Vaudémont, son of GÉRARD Duke of Upper Lorraine & his wife Hadwide --- ([1057]-1108, bur Belval). 

2.         HUGO [X] von Egisheim (-murdered Niedersasbach 5 Sep 1089).  His parentage is confirmed by a charter dated 1091 which records the foundation of the monastery of Toul Saint-Léon and the part played by "Hugoni comiti filio comitis Henrici…et sua comitissa"[258].  Pibon Bishop of Toul granted privileges to the monastery of Toul Saint-Léon and recorded the donations made by "comes Hugo de Dasborc…Henrici filius…et nobilis prosapie beati Leonis…assensu coniugis suæ" by charter dated 1091[259]Graf von Dachsburg.  The Chronicon of Bernhold records that "Ugo comes de Eginisheim" was killed by a servant of the Bishop of Strasbourg "in cubiculo ipsius…II Non Sep" in 1089[260]m MATHILDE de Mousson, daughter of LOUIS Comte de Mousson & his wife Sophie of Upper Lotharingia  (-[28 Nov 1091/8 Mar 1105]).  "Filia Wilelmi comitis de Burgundia Hermentrudis…" founded the Cluniac abbey of Froidefontaine by charter dated 8 Mar 1105 in which she names "suis antecessoribus…Lodewico, Sophia eius uxore, et filiis eorum Brunone, Theoderico, Lodewico, Friderico, filiabus vero Mathilde, Sophia, Beatrice…"[261].  She was present with her mother at the château de Bar 28 Nov 1091[262].  "Matthildis ancilla" (assumed to be Mathilde, daughter of Louis Comte de Mousson) confirmed donations to the abbey of Sainte-Croix, Wolfenheim, "ad Herlischesheim" donated by "comitissa Hiltegardis" for the soul of “filii sui Lodewici comitis”, “ad Dambach” which “mater mea” donated for the soul of “patris mei”, “ad Monstrol” which “dominus noster Hugo” donated, by undated charter which states that “domnus Hugo attavus meus” built the monastery[263].  She addressed a charter pre-1100 to the abbey of Sainte-Croix, Wolfenheim, in which she names her maternal grandmother[264].  Grosdidier de Matons reports a claim that Mathilde married secondly "Valéran Redon de la maison de Crépy-en-Valois"[265], which is based on a spurious document allegedly dated 20 Aug 1118 in which "Renauldz quenz de Bar et de Monceonz" confirmed an agreement whereby "ma ante madame Mahauz monsigneor Walranz Redon sun mari" received Fontenoy and Nanteuil-le-Haudoin under his wife's inheritance[266].  He highlights the apparent confusion with Clémence, great niece of Mathilde and daughter of Renaud I, who married Thiébaut de Crépy Seigneur de Nanteuil-le-Haudoin and speculates that the document in question was a 17th century copy of a spurious act which was fabricated in 1313 by Renaud de Bar Bishop of Metz to prove a property claim against the king of France[267]

3.         BRUNO (-1102).  Archdeacon of Toul.  "Hugo comes" donated property to Kloster Lüders for the soul of "patris sui…Albertis comitis et avunculi sui Brunonis archidiaconis Tullensis" by charter dated 1137[268]

B.      GRAFEN von EGISHEIM und DAGSBURG (MOHA)

 

 

ALBERT [II] [de Moha] (-24 Aug 1098).  It is possible that Albert [II] was the son of Albert [I] but the primary source which confirms that this is correct has not yet been identified.  Graf von Egisheim und Dachsburg 1089.  Comte de Moha: "Albertus comes de Musau" donated property "ecclesias unam in Monte Sancti Martini et alteram in Villari" to the church of Verdun Sainte-Vanne by charter dated 10 May 1096[271].  The necrology of Verdun Saint-Vanne records the death "IX Kal Sep" of "Albertus comes Dasburgensis qui nobis cellam Montis Sancti Martini…dedit"[272]

m firstly HEILWIG von Dachsburg, daughter of HEINRICH [I] Graf von Egisheim und Dachsburg & his wife ---.  The Codex Hirsaugiensis names "Adalbertus comes de Egensheim et uxor eius Heilewig"[273].  Her origin is confirmed by a charter dated 1137 under which "Hugo comes" donated property to Kloster Lüders for the soul of "patris sui…Albertis comitis et avunculi sui Brunonis archidiaconis Tullensis"[274]

m secondly as her first husband, ERMENSENDE de Luxembourg, daughter of KONRAD I Comte de Luxembourg & his [second] wife Clémence --- (-26 Jun 1141).  The Chronicle of Alberic de Trois-Fontaines names "comitem Guilelmum de Luscelenburg…et Ermensendem…et Mathildem" as children of "Conrado comiti de Luscelenburch" and his wife Ermensendis, specifying that Ermesinde was wife of "Namucensem…comitis Godefridi"[275].  However, Ermensende´s correct parentage is stated in the charter dated 17 Jun 1129 under which Meginher Archbishop of Trier confirmed the foundation of Kloster Schiffenberg by "Clementia…comitissa" with the consent of "filii sui Willehelmi et filie Irmesindis"[276].  "Ermensendis comitissa Namucensis" confirmed the prior donation of property to the church of Verdun Sainte-Vanne by "senioris mei comitis Alberti" by charter dated to [1124], subscribed by "domni mei Godefridi comitis et filii mei Henrici comitis, Hugonis filii Folmari comitis, Everardi filii Aiulfi comitis"[277].  In a charter dated 1139, "Albero…Leodiensium episcopus" notes a donation of property to the abbey of Marcigny-sur-Loire by "domna Ermensendis comitissa de Musalt, quæ uxor extitit…comitis Alberici" on the suggestion of "quadam nobili et religiosa fœmina nomine Regina, sibi enim consanguinea"[278], the original donation presumably being dated before [1109] when Ermesinde married her second husband.  She married secondly ([1109]) as his second wife, Godefroi I Comte de Namur.  "Ermensendis comitissa de Muhalt, quæ uxor…comitis Alberti" founded the monastery of Saint-Victor, Huy by charter dated 1130[279].  Heiress of Luxembourg and Longwy, after the death of her nephew Comte Conrad [II] in 1136.  "Comitissa de Musal Ermensendis cum viro suo Namucensi comite Godefrido" donated property to Flône, at the request of "Guntranni et Gisle uxoris eius", by charter dated 1137[280].  The necrology of Verdun Saint-Vanne records the death "VIII Kal Jun" of "Ermensendis comitissa Namucensis qui cum viro suo…comite Alberto cellam Montis Sancti Martini…confirmavit"[281]

Albert [II] & his first wife had one child: 

1.         [HEINRICH] HUGO [XI] (-after 1137).  "Hugo comes" donated property to Kloster Lüders for the soul of "patris sui…Albertis comitis et avunculi sui Brunonis archidiaconis Tullensis" by charter dated 1137[282].  It is assumed that Hugo [IX] was born from his father´s first marriage, as he inherited the county of Dachsburg, but the primary source which confirms that this is correct has not yet been identified.  Graf von Dachsburg

Albert [II] & his [second] wife had [two] children:

2.         MECHTILD (-after 1157).  The subscription by "Hugonis filii Folmari comitis…" of the charter dated to [1124] under which "Ermensendis comitissa Namucensis" confirmed the prior donation of property to the church of Verdun Sainte-Vanne by "senioris mei comitis Alberti"[283] is explained by Hugo being the grantor's grandson.  m FOLMAR [VIII] Graf von Metz, son of FOLMAR [VII] Graf von Metz & his wife --- (-1145, bur Beaupré).

[HEINRICH] HUGO [XI] von Dachsburg, son of ALBERT [II] [de Moha] Graf von Egisheim und Dachsburg & his first wife Heilwig von Dachsburg (-after 1137).  A charter dated 20 Jun 1107 records that “comes Albertus” had donated property to Toul St Leo, later confirmed and increased by “Hugo filius Alberti comitis iam defuncti”, and now confirmed by Heinrich V King of Germany, at the request of “...Girardi comitis, Godefridi comitis, Fulmari comitis[286].  “Counradus Dux de Zaringen, Gotefridus comes palatinus de Calewo, Adelbertus Comes de Lewinstein fratruelis eiusdem Gotefridi palatini, Hugo comes de Tagesburc, Volmarus Comes de Huneburc, Willehelmus Comes de Lucelenburc, Addelbero Comes de Areburc et frater eius Herimannus et ipse Comes Counradus de Horeburc...” witnessed the charter dated 1123 under which Emperor Heinrich V [IV] confirmed the foundation of Alpirsbach monastery[287].  "Hugo comes" donated property to Kloster Lüders for the soul of "patris sui…Albertis comitis et avunculi sui Brunonis archidiaconis Tullensis" by charter dated 1137[288].  It is assumed that Hugo [IX] was born from his father´s first marriage, as he inherited the county of Dachsburg, but the primary source which confirms that this is correct has not yet been identified.  Graf von Dachsburg

m GERTRUD, daughter of ---.  The primary source which confirms her marriage has not yet been identified.   [1153]. 

Hugo [XI] & his wife had [four] children: 

1.         [HEINRICH] HUGO [XII] (-1178 or after).  1138/1178.  "Hugo comes de Dagsburc" donated the church of Antheit "in allodio meo de Musac" to Flône abbey by charter dated 1146[289].  “Comes Hugo de Dagesburc” reached agreement with "abbas Novillarensis ecclesiæ" relating to land "Warthenbergensi castro adjacentia" by charter dated 1158[290].  The Annales Argentinenses record that "comite Hugone de Dagesburg" destroyed Horburg in 1162[291]m (1143) as her second husband, LUTGARDIS von Sulzbach, widow of GODEFROI VI Duke of Lower Lotharingia, daughter of BERENGAR [I] Graf von Sulzbach & his second wife Adelheid von Wolfratshausen (-after 1163).  The Genealogia Ducum Brabantiæ Heredum Franciæ names "Ludgarde ducissa de Saltzebach" as the wife of "Godefridus…secundus dux"[292].  Her second marriage is suggested by the undated charter under which her son "Adelbertus…comes Metensis et de Dasbourch" appointed "nepotem meum ducem Lotharingiæ" as his heir "de castro meo Dasbourgh…"[293].  Hugo [XII] & his wife had four children: 

a)         HUGO [XIII] (-1172, bur Wangias).  The primary source which confirms his parentage has not yet been identified.   The Chronicle of Alberic de Trois-Fontaines names "Hugo" brother of "Albertus comes Dasburgensis et domnus de Musal", specifying that he was buried "apud Wangias"[294].  It also states incorrectly that both were sons of "ducis Lovanii Godefridi II ex secunda uxore Ermengarda", which evidently represents a misinterpretation of the precise relationship with the Dukes of Lotharingia through their mother.  The Annales Parchenses record the death in 1172 of "Hugo frater ducis Godefridi"[295], the two being uterine half-brothers.  1163/1173. 

b)         ALBERT [II] (-1212).  The primary source which confirms his parentage has not yet been identified.   Graf von Dachsburg 1175.  "Albertus comes de Dagesberge…" witnessed the charter dated 1192 under which "Henricus…dux Lotharingiæ" granted freedoms to "burgensibus…de Filfordia"[296].  "Henricus dux Lotharingiæ et marchio et…Luduicus comes de Lon" agreed to divide "terram de Mussal" if "comes de Dasborc" died without heirs by charter dated 1197[297]"Adelbertus…comes Metensis et de Dasbourch" appointed "nepotem meum ducem Lotharingiæ" as his heir "de castro meo Dasbourgh et abbatia de Hessen, de castro Gerbaden, abbatia de Altorf, de castro de Drotein, de castro Albapai, de abbatia et advocatia de Herbreheym…comitatu et advocatia…de Metis…allodium de Musal et Waleve"[298]The Chronicle of Alberic de Trois-Fontaines in 1211 records the death of "Albertus comes Dasburgensis et domnus de Musal"[299]m GERTRUD von Baden, daughter of HERMANN IV Markgraf von Baden & his second wife Udalhildis --- (-before 30 Mar 1225).  Her parentage and marriage are indicated by the charter dated 1226 under which "Hermannus et Henricus fratres…Marchiones de Baden" donated property inherited from "neptem nostram Gertrudim comitissam bonæ memoriæ filiam comitis Alberti de Tagisburc" to Strasbourg church[300].  From a chronological point of view, her father must have been Markgraf Hermann IV if she belonged to the family of the Markgrafen von Baden, assuming the birth of her daughter Gertrud is correctly dated to [1205/06].  The primary source which confirms her name has not yet been identified.  Albert [II] & his wife had three children: 

i)          HEINRICH (-Andain 1202).  The primary source which confirms his parentage has not yet been identified.   He was killed in a tournament[301]

ii)         WILHELM (-Andain 1202).  The primary source which confirms his parentage has not yet been identified.   He was killed in a tournament[302]

iii)        GERTRUD ([May 1205/mid-1206]-before 19 Mar 1225).  The Chronicle of Alberic de Trois-Fontaines names "Albertus comes Dasburgensis et domnus de Musal…parvulam filiam Gertrudem"[303].  Poull suggests the birth date shown above[304].  The Vitæ Odiliæ names "Gertrudem filiam defuncti comitis [de Moha Albertus]" as wife of "Theobaldus ducis Lotharingie filius"[305].  Richer records that "ducem Lotoringie Theobaldum" was married to "filiam comitis de Daxporc", that he inherited the county through her, that after her first husband died she married "comes…Campanie adhuc adolescens" who in his turn inherited the county, that she was repudiated for sterility by her second husband and married thirdly "comiti de Lignigne", and that after the couple's death soon afterwards there were no heirs to her county which (including "castra…Hernestem et Turquestem, et…opida…Albam et Saleborc") was annexed by "Metensis episcopus Iohannes" but that "frater…dicti comitis defuncti" captured "castrum Daxporc"[306].  The Chronicle of Alberic de Trois-Fontaines names "Gertrudam filiam comitis Alberti Dasburgensis" as wife of "dux Theobaldus natus de filia comitis Barri"[307].  The Chronicle of Alberic de Trois-Fontaines records the second marriage in 1220 of "Gertrudem comitissam de Daburc [relictam Theobaldi iuvenis dux Lotharingie]" and "iuvenis comes Theobaldus Campaniensis" and their separation two years later on grounds of consanguinity[308].  The Chronicon Ebersheimense names "filie comitis de Dagesburc" as the wife of "comite de Lyningen"[309].  The Chronicle of Alberic de Trois-Fontaines records the death in 1225 of "Gertrudis…heres unica de Daborch et de…Musacum" recording that she was "novissime…de Linengis comitissa", without naming her third husband[310]m firstly (betrothed Sep 1206, end 1215) THIBAUT I Duke of Lorraine, son of FERRY II Duke of Lorraine & his wife Agnès de Bar (-17 Feb or 24 Mar 1220).  m secondly (mid-May 1220, repudiated 1222) as his first wife, THIBAUT IV Comte de Champagne, son of THIBAUT III Comte de Champagne & his wife Infanta doña Blanca de Navarra (Pamplona 3 May 1201-Pamplona 8 Jul 1253, bur Pamplona).  He succeeded in 1234 as TEOBALDO I King of Navarrem thirdly (1224 before Sep) SIMON von Leiningen, son of FRIEDRICH [III] Graf von Leiningen & his [first] wife Agnes von Eberstein ([1202/05]-[16 Mar 1234/1236]).  Graf von Dachsburg 1234. 

c)         LUITGARD .  The primary source which confirms her parentage and marriage has not yet been identified.   m DIETRICH [I] Graf von Ahr und Hochstaden, son of OTTO Graf von Ahr & his wife Adelheid von Hochstaden (-before 22 Jan 1197). 

d)         GERTRUD .  The primary source which confirms her parentage and marriage has not yet been identified.  m LUDWIG [I] Graf von Saarwerden, son of FOLMAR Graf von Saarwerden & his wife Etiennette de Montbéliard (-after 1200). 

2.         PETRONILLA (-after 14 Nov 1157).  “Libaldus de Baffrimont et uxor eius Petronilla filia comitis de Dasburg et Hugo filius eius” granted "castrum suum de Bafrimont" to Emperor Friedrich I "Barbarossa" by charter dated 14 Nov 1157[311]m LIEBAUD [II] de Bauffremont, son of --- (-after 14 Nov 1157). 

3.         [MATHILDE .  A manuscript dated to [1180] names “Isabeau” as the oldest daughter of “Liebaz li second”, married “à signour de Liney...Odes”, by whom she had “trois fils et deux filles”, adding that she inherited “de par Mahat sa tante Ovieres[312].  The father of “Isabeau” is identified as the husband of Petronilla de Dachsburg (see above).  If “sa tante” can be interpreted as maternal aunt, Mathilde would have been Petronilla´s sister.  “Ovieres” has not been identified.] 

4.         [CLEMENTIA (-before 1169).  According to Europäische Stammtafeln[313], the wife of Heinrich [I] Graf von Salm may have been the daughter of Albert [I] Graf von Dachsburg, although the basis for this speculation is not known.  In any case, this parentage appears unlikely from a chronological point of view if it is correct as shown above that Graf Albert died in 1098, given the likely date of Clementia's grandson's marriage in the 1180s.  If Clementia was related to the Grafen von Dachsburg, it is therefore more likely that she would have been the daughter of Graf Hugo [XI].  m HEINRICH [I] von Salm, son of HERMANN [II] Graf von Salm & his wife Agnès de Mousson (-after 1153, bur Notre-Dame La Ronde, near Metz Cathedral).  He succeeded his brother [after 1140] as Graf von Salm und Langenstein.] 

 

 

 

 

Chapter 6.    COMTES de FERRETTE [PFIRT] 1125-1324

 

 

Ferrette is located approximately midway between Basel and Montbéliard, in the southern part of Alsace.  The primary sources which confirm the parentage and marriages of the following family have not yet been identified, unless otherwise stated below. 

 

 

FREDERIC, son of THIERRY de Mousson & his wife Ermentrude de Bourgogne [Comté] ([1074/78]-19 Jul [1160], bur Oelenberg).  He was mentioned first in order in the list of his mother's living children in her 1105 document.  "Filia Wilelmi comitis de Burgundia Hermentrudis et filii sui Fridericus, Raginaudus, Theodericus" founded the Cluniac abbey of Froidefontaine by charter dated 8 Mar 1105 in which she names "suis antecessoribus…filiis autem Theoderici atque sue uxoris Hermentrudis, Lodewico, Wilelmo, Hugone"[314].  The Chronicle of Alberic de Trois-Fontaines names (in order) "Theodoricum de Monte Beliardi, Fredericum de Ferretes…et Renaldum Strabum comitem de Barro Ducis" as the three brothers of Etienne Archbishop of Metz[315].  During his youth he was miraculously cured of paralysis thanks to Saint Morand[316].  He succeeded his father in 1103 in his territories of Altkirch and Ferrette.  He subscribed an act in 1111 with his father-in-law[317].  He became avoué of the abbey of Lure on his second marriage[318].  He is titled Comte d'Amance in 1112 and 1137, and Comte de Ferrette in 1125[319].  "Fridericus comes de Firretho cum uxore mea Stephania et filio meo Lodoyco" founded the monastery of Feldbach by charter dated 1144[320].  The necrology of Basel records the death "XIV Kal Aug" of "Fridericus comes de Ferreto" and his burial "in Oelenberg"[321]

m firstly (before 12 Apr 1111) PETRISSA von Zähringen, daughter of BERTHOLD Herzog von Zähringen (-[1115]).  Her parentage and marriage are confirmed by a charter dated to [1115] which records that "domina Petrissa, filia ducis Bertholdi" donated "predium…apud Volpach", by the hands of "viri sui comitis…Friderici de Phirrith"[322]

m secondly ETIENNETTE de Vaudémont, daughter of GERARD Comte de Vaudémont [Lorraine] & his wife Heilwig von Egisheim (-[4 Dec 1160/1188], bur Oelenberg).  "Fridericus comes de Firretho cum uxore mea Stephania et filio meo Lodoyco" founded the monastery of Feldbach by charter dated 1144[323].  The necrology of Basel records the death "II Non Dec" of "Stehania comitissa" and her burial "in Oelenberg"[324]

Comte Frédéric & his second wife had one child:

1.         LOUIS [I] de Ferrette (-[1189/90]).  The Chronicle of Alberic de Trois-Fontaines names "comitis Ludovici" as son of "Fredericum de Ferretes"[325].  "Fridericus comes de Firretho cum uxore mea Stephania et filio meo Lodoyco" founded the monastery of Feldbach by charter dated 1144[326].  He succeeded his father in [1160] as Comte de Ferrette.  "Ludovicus comes Ferretensis et dominus de Wadens" confirmed donations to the abbey of Rosières by "domini Vualcherii Salinensis et…domini Friderici imperatoris", previous holders of the castle of Vadans {Vadans, canton d´Arbois, Jura}, by charter dated 1173[327].  "Ludvicus comes Ferret, Odo comes de Rupe" are named as present in a charter dated 6 Sep 1178 which records a judgment by Emperor Friedrich I "Barbarossa" in favour of the abbey of Baume-les-Dames[328].  "Louis comte de Ferrette" notified the abbot of Lucelle about the settlement of a dispute between the abbey and Oelenberg, and confirmed the abbey´s possessions, by charter dated 1182[329].  He was heir to his maternal uncle Ulric de Vaudémont Comte d'Egisheim in 1187[330].  "Lodoicus comes de Firreto" confirmed donations made to the abbey of Lucelle by charter dated 1188[331].  The Annales Marbacenses record that “Bysuntinensis archiepiscopus, comes Luodewicus de Phyrrete” accompanied “dux...Austrie Luopoldus”, who did not wish to cross Hungarian territory, through Italy and by sea on their way to participate in the Third Crusade[332].  Presumably he died some time during the journey as no further reference to Comte Louis has been found.  m RICHENZA von Habsburg, daughter of WERNER [I] Graf von Habsburg & his wife --- (-Dec 1180).  A Habsburg genealogy names "Adelberctum, Gerdrudem de Mümpelgard, Richenzam de Fierrito" as the children of "Wernherus"[333].  No source has yet been identified which specifically states that Richenza was the wife of Comte Louis [I].  However, from a chronological point of view this marriage appears likely to be correct.  Louis [I] & his wife had [one child]: 

a)         [ULRIC [I] (-murdered 27 Sep 1197).  No primary source has been found which confirms the parentage of Ulric [I].  However, it appears possible that he was the son of Louis [I], named after his maternal great-uncle Ulric de Vaudémont Graf von Dachsburg.  Another possibility is that Ulric was Louis [I]´s grandson, son of an otherwise unrecorded son of Louis.  Comte de Ferrette.  He was assassinated on the orders of Othon Comte Palatin de Bourgogne[334].  The Annales Maurimonesterienses record that "Hulricus comes" was killed in 1197[335]

 

 

1.         [--- de Ferrette .  [Comte de Ferrette.]  There is no direct proof of the existence of this person or, if he did exist, whether he was the same person as one of the other individuals in the Ferrette family who lived in the latter part of the 12th century.  Quiquerez suggests that “la seconde fille du comte de Sogren...Agnès” married into the Ferrette family in order to explain how it acquired possession of “[le] château de Sogren, de l´avouerie du Sornegau...[et] de celle de Grandval[336].  This appears to be a good suggestion, as the acquisition of these properties is best explained by marriage, although as discussed in more detail below Agnes von Sogren is not the only possible candidate.  If the properties were brought into the family by Agnes, there appear to be three possibilities for identifying her husband.  Firstly, Quiquerez suggests that he was Louis [I] Comte de Ferrette, assuming that he married Agnes as his second wife after the death of Richenza von Habsburg.  Agnes´s marriage (assuming that she did marry) would most likely be dated to after [1170], when she is named in a charter without any indication of her having a husband ("Comitissa Adeleidis uxor…comitis Odelardi" confirmed the donation by "prædictus vir eius comes Ovdelardus" to the abbey of Frienisberg, with the consent of "duæ filiæ sæpe dicti comitis Berhta et Agnesa…Radulfus comes prædictæ Berhtæ filius", by charter dated to [1170][337]).  If the dating of that document is correct, Louis [I] would have married Agnes about 30 years after his marriage to Richenza (dated approximately to [1140], given his birth after [1115]), which, while not impossible, seems unlikely.  Secondly, some secondary sources posit the existence of “Louis [II] Comte de Ferrette”, son of Louis [I], as the husband of Agnes.  If that is correct, all the sources dated after 1180 in which Louis is named (see above) would relate to this Louis [II].  No primary source document has been found which confirms the separate existence of Louis [II].  Thirdly, Comte Ulric [I], supposed son of Louis [I], could have been Agnes´s husband and ancestor of the later comtes de Ferrette, although no primary source has been found which supports that suggestion.  But is Agnes the most likely possibility for the wife of this unidentified [comte de Ferrette]?  One difficulty is that Agnes von Sogren may already have been old for child-bearing in [1170].  The charter dated to [1170] also names Agnes´s sister Berta, as well as Berta´s son Graf Rudolf, which indicates that Berta was a widow and that her son already bore his father´s comital title and was therefore of age.  Agnes is named second in the document and was therefore presumably Berta´s younger sister.  It is true that insufficient sources have been found to speculate reliably on the chronology of the Sogren family, but if the difference of age of the sisters was not great Agnes´s birth could be dated to as early as [1130].  The [1170] charter suggests another possibility for the identity of the wife of the unnamed [comte de Ferrette].  If Graf Rudolf, Agnes´s nephew, was already of age, it is possible (as shown below) that he had a sister of marriageable age who could have brought Sogren properties to her husband as dowry.  m (after [1170]) EITHER: AGNES von Sogren, daughter of UDELHARD [II] Graf von Sogren [Soybières/Saugern] & his wife Adelheid ---], OR: --- von Thierstein, daughter of --- Graf von Thierstein & his wife Berta von Sogren.] 

 

 

1.         FREDERIC [II] de Ferrette, son of --- (-murdered [1232/25 Jan 1233]).  No primary source has been identified which confirms the parentage of Comte Frédéric [II].  He could have been the son of Comte Ulric or a grandson of Comte Louis [I] by another unknown son of Louis.  He succeeded as Comte de Ferrette"...Riccardus comes Montisbelgardensis, comes Fridericus de Ferreto, comes Sibertus de Vuerda..." subcribed the charter dated 1 Jun 1207 under which Philipp King of Germany confirmed his imperial fiefs to “consanguineus noster Thomas comes Sabaudiæ[338]"Fridericus comes de Phirreto" donated property to Lieucroissant abbey by charter dated 1210[339].  "Fridericus comes Ferretarum" authorised the abbey of Lucelle by charter dated 1215 which names "abbas Bercholdus eiusdem ecclesie, frater uxoris meæ Hilvidis"[340].  The Annales Colmarienses record that "Fridericus comes Phirretarum" was killed by "filio suo dicto Grimmel" in 1234[341].  This date can be adjusted backwards by the charter dated 25 Jan 1233 under which his son "Uolricus comes Phirretensis" confirmed the donation to the church of Basel, made by "mater mea Helvvigis comitissa Phirretensis et Berhtoldus frater meus, Basiliensis ecclesie canonicus" with the consent of "pater meus felicis recordationis Fridericus comes Phirretensis" at the court of "consanguineo meo Alberto comite de Habespurg lantgravio Alsatie"[342]m firstly --- von Egisheim, daughter of ---.  She founded the abbey of Valdieu[343]m secondly (before 1215) HEILWIG [Stephanie] von Urach, daughter of EGINO [IV] "dem Bärtigen" Graf von Urach & his wife Agnes von Zähringen.  Her parentage and marriage are indicated by the charter dated 1215 under which her husband "Fridericus comes Ferretarum" authorised the abbey of Lucelle which names "abbas Bercholdus eiusdem ecclesie, frater uxoris meæ Hilvidis"[344].  “Stephana comitissa Phirrecensis” donated property to the church of Basel to found anniversaries for herself and “comitis Friderici viri mei”, with the consent of “filio meo Lodoico”, by charter dated to [1232][345].  As can be seen below, the name Stephanie was introduced into the family of the comtes de Ferrette after this marriage.  "Uolricus comes Phirretensis" confirmed the donation to the church of Basel, made by "mater mea Helvvigis comitissa Phirretensis et Berhtoldus frater meus, Basiliensis ecclesie canonicus" with the consent of "pater meus felicis recordationis Fridericus comes Phirretensis" at the court of "consanguineo meo Alberto comite de Habespurg lantgravio Alsatie", by charter dated 25 Jan 1233[346].  1262.  Frédéric [II] & his first wife had two children: 

a)         ALIX [Algéarde] (-before 1268).  A charter dated 15 May 1226 records that "Fridericum comitem Firretensem" and "Richardum comitem Montisbilig" agreed to end the war between them with the marriage of "Tierricus filius comitis Montisbiligardi major natu" and "Adeardim filiam comitis Firretensis", with the consent of "Olrico et Lodovico filiis ipsius comitis Firretensis"[347].  Dame de Belfort.  m (after 15 May 1226) THIERRY "le Grand" de Montbéliard, son of RICHARD [III] Comte de Montbéliard & his second wife Agnes d'Auxonne [Bourgogne-Comté] (-[15 May/4 Sep] 1283).  He succeeded his father in 1227 as Comte de Montbéliard

b)         AGNES (-before Jul 1272, bur [Clairefontaine]).  Dame de Montreux-en-Ferrette [Münsterol].  "Fredericus Tullensis comes" donated property to the abbey of Clairefontaine, with the consent of "Renardus frater meus, Agnes comitissa uxor mea, Odo, Matheus et Philyppus filii mei", by charter dated 1227[348]m (before 1227) FERRY Comte de Toul [Lorraine] (-before 1250, bur Clairefontaine). 

Frédéric [II] & his second wife had [eight] children: 

c)         ULRIC [II] (-1 Feb 1275, bur Feldbach).  A charter dated 15 May 1226 records that "Fridericum comitem Firretensem" and "Richardum comitem Montisbilig" agreed to end the war between them with the marriage of "Tierricus filius comitis Montisbiligardi major natu" and "Adeardim filiam comitis Firretensis", with the consent of "Olrico et Lodovico filiis ipsius comitis Firretensis"[349].  His mother´s identity is confirmed by the charter dated 1230 under which "Ulricus comes Firretensis" donated property to the abbey of Lucelle, naming "abbatis eiusdem loci domini Bertholdi avunculi nostri"[350].  He succeeded as Comte de Ferrette

-        see below

d)         LOUIS [III] (-Rieti 1236 after 26 Aug).  A charter dated 15 May 1226 records that "Fridericum comitem Firretensem" and "Richardum comitem Montisbilig" agreed to end the war between them with the marriage of "Tierricus filius comitis Montisbiligardi major natu" and "Adeardim filiam comitis Firretensis", with the consent of "Olrico et Lodovico filiis ipsius comitis Firretensis"[351]Comte de Ferrette.  "Lodowicus comes Ferretensis" confirmed a donation to the abbey of Lucelle, previously confirmed by "patris mei Friderici comitis Ferretensis", by charter dated 1230[352].  “Stephana comitissa Phirrecensis” donated property to the church of Basel to found anniversaries for herself and “comitis Friderici viri mei”, with the consent of “filio meo Lodoico”, by charter dated to [1232][353].  The Annales Colmarienses record that "Fridericus comes Phirretarum" was killed by "filio suo dicto Grimmel" in 1234[354].  This record refers to Louis [III], as demonstrated by the charter dated 25 Jan 1233 under which [his brother] "Uolricus comes Phirretensis" confirmed the donation to the church of Basel, made by "mater mea Helvvigis comitissa Phirretensis et Berhtoldus frater meus, Basiliensis ecclesie canonicus" with the consent of "pater meus felicis recordationis Fridericus comes Phirretensis" at the court of "consanguineo meo Alberto comite de Habespurg lantgravio Alsatie", which appoints guarantors to ensure that “Ludewicum qui nunc prescriptus est” to confirm the donation if he was purged of his infamy (“si infamia, qua laborat, purgatus, reconciliatus fuerit”)[355].  However, Quiquerez publishes a French translation of a deathbed confession of “Ulric comte de Ferrette” dated 31 Jan 1285 which states that “le meurtrier de notre père Frédéric n´est point notre frère Louis que nous avons accusé injustement et exclu de sa succession...mais nous Ulric” requesting absolution for this killing and that of “Rodolphe comte de Sogren[356].  "L...comes Ferretarum" donated "domum unam in castro Purrendrut" [Porrentruy] to Bellelay abbey by charter dated 16 Jan 1233[357].  The Historia Novientensis Monasterii records that Heinrich King of Germany (son of Emperor Friedrich II) donated “Danne” [Thanne] held by “comite de Phyrreto qui dicebatur Grimel, qui parricidium in patrem suum commiserat” to Strasbourg Cathedral[358].  "Lodoicus comes de Ferreto" swore to obey the orders of Pope Gregory IX who lifted the excommunication against him, by charter dated 18 Aug 1236[359].  The testament of "Lodoicus comes de Ferreto", dated 20 Aug 1236 at Rieti, bequeathed his property to the church, except “duabus villis...Aghentale et Durlenstorph...in Basiliensi dioecesi” which were bequeathed to “uxori meæ[360]m --- (-after 20 Aug 1236).  The testament of "Lodoicus comes de Ferreto", dated 20 Aug 1236 at Rieti, bequeathed his property to the church, except “duabus villis...Aghentale et Durlenstorph...in Basiliensi dioecesi” which were bequeathed to “uxori meæ[361]

e)         BERTHOLD (-10 Dec 1262, bur Basel Münster).  "Uolricus comes Phirretensis" confirmed the donation to the church of Basel, made by "mater mea Helvvigis comitissa Phirretensis et Berhtoldus frater meus, Basiliensis ecclesie canonicus" with the consent of "pater meus felicis recordationis Fridericus comes Phirretensis" at the court of "consanguineo meo Alberto comite de Habespurg lantgravio Alsatie", by charter dated 25 Jan 1233[362].  Canon at Basel Cathedral 1230/1233.  Canon at Strasbourg Cathedral 1237/1240.  Provost at Moutier-Grandval 1243/1249.  Coadjutor of Basel 1248.  Bishop of Basel 1249.

ULRIC [II] de Ferrette, son of FREDERIC [II] Comte de Ferrette & his second wife Heilwig von Urach (-1 Feb 1275, bur Feldbach).  A charter dated 15 May 1226 records that "Fridericum comitem Firretensem" and "Richardum comitem Montisbilig" agreed to end the war between them with the marriage of "Tierricus filius comitis Montisbiligardi major natu" and "Adeardim filiam comitis Firretensis", with the consent of "Olrico et Lodovico filiis ipsius comitis Firretensis"[366].  His mother´s identity is confirmed by the charter dated 1230 under which "Ulricus comes Firretensis" donated property to the abbey of Lucelle, naming "abbatis eiusdem loci domini Bertholdi avunculi nostri"[367].  He succeeded as Comte de Ferrette.  "Uolricus comes Phirretensis" confirmed the donation to the church of Basel, made by "mater mea Helvvigis comitissa Phirretensis et Berhtoldus frater meus, Basiliensis ecclesie canonicus" with the consent of "pater meus felicis recordationis Fridericus comes Phirretensis" at the court of "consanguineo meo Alberto comite de Habespurg lantgravio Alsatie", by charter dated 25 Jan 1233, witnessed by "Hermannus comes junior de Froburg…" and which appoints guarantors to ensure that “Ludewicum qui nunc prescriptus est” to confirm the donation if he was purged of his infamy (“si infamia, qua laborat, purgatus, reconciliatus fuerit”)[368].  "Ulricus et Albertus fratres de Ferreto comites" relinquished claims in favour of Murbach abbey by charter dated Dec 1235[369].  Seigneur de Florimont [Blumberg] 1256.  Berthold Bishop of Basel recorded that "Johannes...von der Halden" had renounced rights in "monasterium Bellelagie" by charter dated 13 Oct 1261, in the presence of "Ulricus comes Phirretarum...Fridericus et Lodwicus filii comitis eiusdem"[370].  “Comes Ulricus Phirretensis” confirmed donations by "Heilewigis mater mea…Friderici patris mei", with the consent of "Fridericus, Lodowicus et Theobaldus fratres", by charter dated 1262[371].  [The Annales Colmarienses record that "comes Phirretarum" captured "fratrem suum...Grevelinum" in 1270[372].  It is unclear to whom this entry refers as all the known brothers of Comte Ulric [II] were deceased by 1270.  Quiquerez suggests that “comes Phirretarum” in this passage was Thiébaut, son of Ulric, not Ulric himself[373], and the source dated 1 Apr 1274 quoted below shows that Thiébaut used the comital title during his father´s lifetime.]  “Ulricus comes Ferretensis nec non Fridericus et Theobaldus filii nostri” signed an agreement with Kloster Murbach dated 8 Aug 1269[374].  The Alberti Argentinensis Chronicon records that “comes Ferretarum”, to the indignation of his relatives (“ex quadam indignatione suorum”) proposed exchanging “terræ suæ” with the bishop of Basel for “munitionem et vallem Telschberg” [Delémont], but he eventually agreed to resign “castrum Zouger et advocatiam in Sergowe” to the bishop who granted “Ferretum, Altkilch” to him as fiefs[375].  The Annales Basilienses record that "dominus Heinricus episcopus Basiliensis" bought the county of Ferrette from "comite Phirretarum Ulrico et filius eius" for "mille marcis et ab eo in feodum receperunt" in 1271[376].  Quiquerez publishes a French translation of a deathbed confession of “Ulric comte de Ferrette” dated 31 Jan 1285 which states that “le meurtrier de notre père Frédéric n´est point notre frère Louis que nous avons accusé injustement et exclu de sa succession...mais nous Ulric” requesting absolution for this killing and that of “Rodolphe comte de Sogren[377].  The Annales Colmarienses record that "comes Ulricus de Phirreto" died "vigilia purificationis" in 1275[378].  The Annales Basilienses record the death "vigilia purificacionis" in 1275 of "comes Ulricus de Pfirreto"[379]

Thiébaut & his first wife had [six] children: 

1.         ULRICH [III] von Pfirt (-Basel 11 Mar 1324, bur Thann Barfusserkirche).  His parentage is confirmed by the charter dated 2 Jan 1312 under which Heinrich VII King of Germany confirmed the marriage of "filiam…Theob. comitis Phirretarum" and "filium Eberhardi comitis de Wirtenberg", with "Ulricus comes Phirretarum frater dictæ filiæ" acting as proxy[401].  Seigneur de Rougemont 1305/1309.  He succeeded his father in 1311 as Comte de Ferrette.  "Vlricus comes Pherretarum" granted protection to the monks of the abbey of Lieu-Croissant by charter dated 29 Feb 1311[402].  "Graue Vlrich von Phirte" issued judgment in favour of Lucelle abbey relating to property at Lutterbach by charter dated 21 Apr 1312[403].  The bishop of Basel declared that "dominus Ulricus comes Ferretarum...filie ex...domina Johanna de Montebellicardi eius uxore" could succeed her father by charter dated 30 May 1318[404].  The necrology of Basel records the death "V Id Mar" in 1324 of "Ulricus comes Phirretarum pater…Johanne…principis dni Alberti ducis Austrie Styrie et Carinthie…ducisse" and his burial "in oppido dicte Tanne in ecclesia fratrum Minorum"[405]m (Betrothed 19 Nov 1295, 1303 before 28 Jul) as her first wife, JEANNE de Bourgogne, daughter of RENAUD de Bourgogne [Comté] Comte de Montbéliard & his wife Guillemette de Neuchâtel Ctss de Montbéliard (-[26 Aug 1347/11 Sep 1349]).  She married secondly (before 23 Feb 1326) Rudolf Hesso Markgraf von Baden, and thirdly (before 2 Aug 1339) as his first wife, Wilhelm Graf von Katzenelnbogen.  Ulrich [III] & his wife had two children:
