INTRODUCTION

 

 

An obscure minor noble family in Swabia, the Zähringen dynasty owed its rise to power to their support for the nobility in its long running dispute with Emperor Heinrich IV in the last decades of the 11th century.  They sided with the anti-king of Germany, Rudolf von Rheinfelden Duke of Swabia, after his election in 1077.  The Zähringer were courted by both sides, the emperor appointing different members of the dynasty as duke of Carinthia and duke of Swabia at different times.  The dynasty concentrated its attention on building its territorial influence around Freiburg im Breisgau.  Like the less powerful family of the Grafen von Hohenburg, centred on Wiesneck[1], the Zähringer held property in the Black Forest on both banks of the upper reaches of the river Rhine.  It held countships in the Thurgau, Albgau, Ortenau and Breisgau.  The ducal branch acquired the family's Swabian possessions, maintained the title duke after the head of the family ceased to be Duke of Swabia and eventually applied it to the imperial fief of Zähringen which it held directly from the crown (see the document SWABIA NOBILITY). 

 

The title "Markgraf" was never officially awarded to the Markgrafen von Baden in a way which associated it with Baden as a territory.  The first "Markgraf" of the family was the father of Markgraf Hermann [II] who is shown below.  Hermann [I] was installed as "Markgraf" in the March of Verona in northern Italy by Heinrich IV King of Germany in 1072.  He resigned the appointment to become a monk at Cluny in the following year.  His son subsequently used the title, which gradually came to be applied to his home-base of Baden in Swabia.  No record of any objection to this process by the German king has survived.  It is assumed that no difficulty was raised in view of the numerous other examples of such transformations in 11th and 12th century Germany, for example those relating to the titles of Duke of Dachau and Markgraf der Bayerischen Nordgau.  The first recorded mention of the title associated with the territory of Baden is a charter of Emperor Heinrich V dated 27 Apr 1112 (see below).  The son of Markgraf Hermann [II] was briefly installed in the march of Verona by Konrad III King of Germany in 1148, but this had no further effect on his title.
