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 by that time of sufficient local importance to be courted by both sides in the dispute, 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. 

 

The older branch of the family were ancestors of the Grafen von Habsburg.  Albrecht [III] Graf von Habsburg (who died in 1199) was descended from the Alsatian Grafen im Sundgau (see ALSACE), as shown by the charter dated 1186 under which Albertus comes de Habesburg. Lantgravius Alsatie” confirmed the privileges of “monasterii Sancti Trudperti...in Nigra Silva” founded by “prædecessorum et progenitorum nostrorum Lutfridi comitis, Otperti et Ramperti”, 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)[2].  The precise descent is not known.  Nor is it known whether the two families were connected through the male or female line. 

 

The Genealogia Zaringorum[3] was written at the monastery of St Peter in the Black Forest, early in the 13th century judging by its recording the death of the youngest son of Konrad Duke of Zähringen.  It is accompanied by a Continuatio, probably written just over a century later as it ends with a marriage dated elsewhere to before 1318. 

 

The title "Markgraf" was never officially awarded to the Markgrafen von Baden in a way which associated it with Baden as a territory.  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 was gradually 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 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.

1.         GUNTRAM "der Reiche", son of --- (-9 Aug, after 973).  Graf im Breisgau: Emperor Otto I granted property "habere Cuntramnus comes in pago Prisecgeuue in comitatu Pirihtihonis in locis…Puckinga, Uringa, Muron" to Konrad Bishop of Konstanz by charter dated 21 Feb 962[4]m ---.  The name of Guntram's wife is not known.  Graf Guntram & his wife had one child: 

a)         LANDOLT [Lanzelin] (-991).  The primary source which confirms his parentage has not yet been identified.  Herr zu Muri 976, 981.  Graf im Thurgau.  The Liber Vitæ of Einsiedeln records the donation made in Jan by “comes Lantoldus et Lutgardis uxor eius[5]m LIUTGARD [von Nellenburg], daughter of EBERHARD [III] Graf [von Nellenburg] Graf im Thurgau & his wife ---.  The primary source which confirms her parentage has not yet been identified.   The Liber Vitæ of Einsiedeln records the donation made in Jan by “comes Lantoldus et Lutgardis uxor eius[6].  Graf Landolt & his wife had four children: 

i)          RATBOD (-30 Jun, before 1045, bur Kloster Muri).  The primary source which confirms his parentage has not yet been identified.  Founded the Convent at Muri.  Graf im Klettgau[7] 1023.  He built the castle of Habsburg in Aargau.

ii)         RUDOLF [I] (-before 29 Jan 1063).  An undated charter records the foundation of Kloster Muri by "Radeboto comes…uxorem…Itam" and records that "fratre…eius Rudolfo" founded "cellam Othmarshein"[8].  Graf im Oberelsaß (Upper Alsace) and the Rauhen Alb, following his older brother’s partition of the family territories.  "Heinricus…rex" confirmed the donation of property "in comitatu Chunonis comitis et in pago Alsatia…in comitatu Gerardi comitis…in comitatu Wernhardi comitis et in pago Mortenva…in comitatu Herimanni comitis et in pago Brisergouiaæ…in comitatu Rudolphi comitis et in pago Scerron…in comitatu Liutoldi comitis et in pago Chletgowe…in comitatu Arnoldi comitis et in pago Frichgoue" to Kloster Otmarsheim by "vidua Chunigund…a marito illius Rudolpho" by charter dated 1 Mar 1064[9].  He founded, together with his wife, the Convent of Ottmarsheim, in Upper Alsace[10]m KUNIGUNDE, daughter of --- (-after 1 Mar 1064).  The primary source which confirms her marriage has not yet been identified. 

iii)        WERNER (-Constantinople 28 Oct 1028, bur Constantinople).  His parentage is indicated by a charter dated 1027 under which "Wernherus Strasburgensis episcopus et castri quod dicitur Habesbur, fundator monasterio in patrimonio meo…Mure…in pago Argoia in comitatu Rore" donated property to Kloster Muri "per manum germani fratris mei Lancelini"[11].  An undated charter which records the foundation of Kloster Muri by "Radeboto comes…uxorem…Itam" states that Ita was "de partibus Lotharingorum…sororem Theodrici ducis ac Wernharii, Argentine civitatis episcopi" and adds that Werner died and was buried at Constantinople "anno 1027"[12]Bishop of Strasbourg 1002.  Imperial envoy at the court of Constantinople.

LANCELIN, son of LANDOLT Graf von Altenburg & his wife Lütgard von Nellenburg (-after 1027)His parentage is indicated by a charter dated 1027 under which "Wernherus Strasburgensis episcopus et castri quod dicitur Habesbur, fundator monasterio in patrimonio meo…Mure…in pago Argoia in comitatu Rore" donated property to Kloster Muri "per manum germani fratris mei Lancelini"[15]

same person as…?  LANDOLT (-after 992).  It is not known whether "Lancelini" was the same person as Landolt, husband of Bertha, but the similarity of names suggests that it is possible.  Vogt of Reichenau 992. 

m BERTHA, sister of FRIEDRICH Graf im Sündergau [Staufer], daughter of --- (-after [1000]).  The Tabula consanguinitatis Friderici I regis et Adelæ reginæ (which provided the basis for their divorce) records "Berta" and "Fridericus" as brother and sister, and their descendants[16]

Landolt & his wife had two children: 

1.         BEZZELIN [Bertilo] (-15 Jul [1024])The Tabula consanguinitatis Friderici I regis et Adelæ reginæ (which provided the basis for their divorce) names "Berta" (sister of "Fridericus") as mother of "Bezelinum de Vilingen"[17].  The Genealogia Zaringorum names "Bezelinus comes" and his brother "Gebezone" as the first known members of the Zähringer family, specifying that they built Kloster Sulzburg near Mühlheim[18]Graf in der Ortenau.  "Otto…rex" confirmed an exchange of property "villam…Nerichouua ultra fluvium Moldaha" agreed between Gisalhar Archbishop of Magdeburg and "Becilinum comitem" by charter dated 18 Sep 991[19], although it is not known whether this refers to the same person.  "Pyrtilo" founded the monastery of Sulzburg by charter dated to [993], confirmed by Emperor Otto II by charter dated 22 Jun 993 at the request of "Byrchtilonis comitis" specifying that Sulzburg was "in pago Brysichgowe…in comitatu superius iam scripti Birchtilonis comitis"[20].  "Otto…Romanorum imperator augustus" granted the right to a market in Villingen to "Berhtoldo comiti nostro" by charter dated 29 Mar 999[21].  This may have been the same person as Bezzelin, ancestor of the Zähringen family, or at least the grantee may have been closely related to him considering that the name Berthold was used frequently by Bezzelin's descendants.  "Pirctelo…cum manu fratris mei Gebehardi" donated property to Sulzburg monastery "in pago Prisicheuue in comitatu Adalberoni comitis", and granted the monastery to the church of Basel, by charter dated 28 Mar 1008, witnessed by "Adalbero comes, Beretholt comes, Ruodolf comes…"[22].  "Heinricus…Romanorum imperator augustus" renewed the privileges of Kloster Fulda by undated charter, placed in the compilation with other charters dated 1020, witnessed by "Godifridi ducis, Berinhardi ducis, Thiederici ducis, Welphonis comitis, Cunonis comitis, Kunrati comitis, Ottonis comitis, Adilbrahtis comitis, Bobonis comitis, Friderici comitis, Bezilini comitis, Ezonis comitis palatini"[23], the order of witnesses presumably giving some idea of the relative importance of these named nobles at the court of Emperor Heinrich II at the time.  m [LIUTGARD], daughter of ---, patruus of EBERHARD [IV] "dem Seligen" Graf von Nellenburg.  The primary source which confirms her parentage and marriage has not yet been identified.  Graf Bezzelin & his wife had one child: 

a)         BERTHOLD (-Limburg 5/6 Nov 1078, bur Hirsau).  The Tabula consanguinitatis Friderici I regis et Adelæ reginæ (which provided the basis for their divorce) names "Bertolfum cum Barba" as son of "Bezelinum de Vilingen"[24].  The Genealogia Zaringorum names "Berchtoldus Cum-barba" as son of "Bezelinus comes", specifying that he was buried at Hirsau[25].  "Heinricus…Romanorum imperator augustus" confirmed property "…in pago Brysihcgowe in villis Mulinheim et Ougheim in comitatu Bertholdi comitis…in pago Brisihcgowe in villa Piccensole in comitatu supra dicti Bertholdi comitis…" to the cathedral of Basel by charter dated 1 Jun 1048[26].  "Eberhardus comes Turegie provincie" exchanged property with "Bertholdo Carinthiorum duce" by charter dated early Mar 1050, witnessed by "…Burchardus et Eberhardus et Adelbertus, filii Eberhardi comitis…"[27].  This charter is presumably misdated as Berthold did not become Duke of Carinthia until 1061, and his son Marchese in 1072.  He was promised the duchy of Swabia by the emperor.  He was installed in 1061 as BERTHOLD I "the Bearded" Duke of Carinthia.  The Annals of Berthold record that "Berhtoldus comes Suevigena" was appointed Duke of Carinthia in 1061 after the death of "Chounradus…Carantanis ducis"[28].  He never obtained actual possession of the duchy[29], and was deposed in 1077.  Marchese di Verona 1066.  Graf im Breisgau until 1077.  Heinrich IV King of Germany confirmed the privileges of Basel church in property "in comitatu Berchtoldi in pago Brisichgowi" by charter dated 20 May 1073[30].  He founded Kloster Weilheim unter Teck before 1073.  He was one of the principal adversaries of Emperor Heinrich IV in the investiture dispute, demonstrated by King Heinrich redistributing Berthold's properties by charter dated 1 Jul 1077 under which "Heinricus…rex" granted property "in pago Brisgowe Bertholfi iam non duci iusto iudicio sublatum" to the church of Strasbourg[31]m firstly RICHWARA, daughter of --- (-before [1056]).  .  The wife of "Berchtoldus dux de Zaringen" is named "Richwara" in a list of founders of the monastery of St Peter in Schwarzwald[32].  According to Wegener, she was Richwara of Swabia, daughter of Hermann IV Duke of Swabia [Babenberg] & his wife Adelaida di Susa.  However, this seems unlikely from a chronological point of view.  Richwara gave birth to five children, presumably between [1045/55], so is unlikely to have been born later than 1030, when her supposed father was only 15 years old and her supposed mother about 10.  m secondly ([1056]) BEATRIX de Mousson, daughter of LOUIS Comte de Mousson & his wife Sophie of Upper Lotharingia  (-26 Oct 1092, bur Toul Cathedral).  The Chronicon of Bernold records the death "1092 VII Kal Nov…in civitate Leucorum" of "Beatrix soror Friderici marchionis et uxor quondam Berthaldi ducis" and her burial by the bishop of the same place[33].  Duke Berthold & his first wife had five children:

i)          HERMANN ([1045/48]-Cluny 26 Apr 1074)The Genealogia Zaringorum names "Berchtoldus" as son of "Berchtoldus Cum-barba", and "Hermannus" as brother of "Berchtoldus [et] Gebehardo", specifying that Hermann was appointed "in marchionem" but abandoned his post to become a monk at Cluny[34].  "Eberhardus comes Turegie provincie" exchanged property with "Bertholdo Carinthiorum duce" by charter dated early Mar 1050, witnessed by "…Herimannus marchio filius B. ducis…"[35].  This charter is presumably misdated as Berthold did not become Duke of Carinthia until 1061.  He was installed as Marchese di Verona: "Hesso" placed property "in pago Brisgoacensi sive Archaim...in manum Hermanni marchionis marchie Veronensis" to donate “capellam...Rimesengen” to Cluny by charter dated to 1072 or before[36].  The Annals of Berthold record that "Herimannus marchio, filius ducis Bertholdi, adolescens adhuc" left all his possessions, his wife and only son in 1073 to become a monk at Cluny[37].  The Chronicon of Bernold records the death "1074 VII Kal Mai" of "Heremannus marchio, filius Bertaldi ducis", commenting that "adhuc adolescens" he had left his wife and only son to become a monk at Cluny[38]m JUDITH, daughter of --- (-Salerno 27 Sep 1091, bur Backnang).  The wife of "Hermannus [1] marchio" is named "Iudinta" in a list of founders of the monastery of St Peter in Schwarzwald[39].  The Chronicon of Bernold records the death "V Kal Oct" in 1091 of "Iuditha...marchionissa...uxor quondam Heremanni...marchionis", adding that after her husband became a monk she went "ad domnum papam Salernum" where she lived under his protection[40]Graf Hermann [I] & his wife had one child: 

(a)       HERMANN [II] (-[7 Oct] [1130], bur Backnang Stiftskirche)The Annals of Berthold record that "Herimannus marchio, filius ducis Bertholdi, adolescens adhuc" left all his possessions, his wife and only son in 1073 to become a monk at Cluny[41]Graf im Breisgau 1087.  "Theodericus" donated property "in pago Briscaugia in comitatu Hermanni in locis…Anemotinga, Zaizmannersmate, Regol, Richinbach, Winedoriuti, Baldinga" to Schaffhausen St Salvator by charter dated 2 Apr 1094[42]Markgraf 1089.  Markgraf von Limburg 1100.  Graf im Ufgau 1102.  Markgraf von Baden 27 Apr 1112.

ii)         BERTHOLD ([1050]-12 Apr 1111, bur St Peter in Schwarzwald)The Genealogia Zaringorum names "Berchtoldus" as son of "Berchtoldus Cum-barba", referring to him first among the brothers, specifying that he was buried at St Peter in 1111[43]He was installed in 1092 as BERTHOLD II Duke of Swabia.  He was installed in 1092 as BERTHOLD II Duke of Carinthia, in opposition to Duke Heinrich II [Eppenstein].  Herzog von Zähringen 1100.

HERMANN, son of HERMANN Marchese of Verona & his wife Judith --- (-[7 Oct] [1130], bur Backnang Stiftskirche).  The Annales of Berthold record that "Herimannus marchio, filius ducis Bertholdi, adolescens adhuc" left all his possessions, his wife and only son in 1073 to become a monk at Cluny[51]HERMANN II Markgraf.  The primary sources do not consistently use the title “Markgraf” for Hermann, and apply his titles to different territories.  "...Hermannus marchion..." witnessed the charter dated 1 Feb 1089 under which Emperor Heinrich IV confirmed acquisitions by the church of Regensberg[52].  "Bertaldo duci et fratrueli suo Hermanno comiti" donated property at "Bösinga et Hemmental" to Schaffhausen by charter dated 14 Apr 1090[53].  "Theodericus" donated property "in pago Briscaugia in comitatu Herimanni..." to Schaffhausen by charter dated 2 Apr 1094[54].  "...Herimanni marchionis de Linthburc..." {Limburg am Kaiserstuhl bei Breisach} witnessed the charter dated 27 Feb 1100 under which "Burchardus comes de Nellenburc" donated property “predium meum Hemmendal cum silva Randa” to Schaffhausen[55].  "...Marcionum Brucardi et Hermanni..." are named among interveners in a charter dated 16 May 1101 which Emperor Heinrich IV issued for Lobbes[56].  Graf im Ufgau 1102.  Pope Paschal II instructed “duci Guelphoni et fratri eius Henrico, duci Bertholdo et nepoti eius Herimanno et cæteris principibus per Sueviam” to obey the bishop of Constanz, dated 10 Feb 1103[57].  "Herimannus marchio beate memorie Herimanni marchionis filius" donated property "apud villam Amparingen" towards the foundation of St Peter im Schwarzwald by charter dated 1111, witnessed by “Berhtoldus dux patruelis eiusdem comitis[58].  Markgraf von Baden: "...Hermanni marchionis de Baduon..." witnessed the charter dated 27 Apr 1112 under which Emperor Heinrich V donated property to the church of Regensberg[59].  Emperor Heinrich V confirmed the privileges of St Georg im Schwarzwald, on the intervention of “...Leopoldi, Odachori et Hermanni de Badin, marchionum...”, by charter dated 16 Jul 1112[60].  He founded Stift Backnang 1116-1120.  The Notitia Fundationis Monasterii Backnang records the foundation in 1116 by "Hermanno Marchione Badensi" and by "filio suo juniore Hermanno" in 1134[61].  Bruno Bishop of Speyer confirmed the foundation of Backnang by "Hermanni marchionis…et uxor eius Juditha" by charter dated 1122[62].  The necrology of St Peter im Schwarzwald records the death "7 Non Oct" of "Hermannus marchio in marchione"[63].  It is not certain that this refers to Markgraf Hermann II.  The necrology includes no other names from the Baden branch of the Zähringer family, although the branch of the Dukes of Zähringen is well represented.   

m JUDITH, daughter of --- (-23 Jul 1122, bur Backnang Stiftskirche).  Bruno Bishop of Speyer confirmed the foundation of Backnang by "Hermanni marchionis…et uxor eius Juditha" by charter dated 1122[64]

Chapter 3.    HERZOGEN von ZÄHRINGEN

 

 

An obscure minor noble family in Swabia, the Zähringen dynasty owed their rise to power to the support they gave to the cause of the nobility in its long running dispute with Emperor Heinrich IV King of Germany in the last decades of the 11th century.  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.  This family provides one of the earliest examples of what Otto von Freising called "an empty title"[198], unlike a duchy in the ancient sense despite being recognised by the imperial government.  The Zähringer increased their power west of the Rhine when Konrad von Zähringen acquired the rectorship of Burgundy in 1127.  They consolidated their position in the Black Forest south of the Kinzigtal by transferring the family monastery of Weilheim to St Peter in 1093, establishing Alpirsbach in 1095[199], holding the advocacies of the monasteries of Gengenbach, Schuttern and Stein am Rhein, and acquiring those of St Georgen (in 1114) and St Blasien (in 1125)[200]

 

They dominated the other two independent baronial families in the region between the Kinzig valley and the upper Rhine, the Markgrafen von Breisgau and the Herren von Schwarzenberg (advocates of Waldkirch)[201].  Their dominance was challenged by the Hohenburg family in the Dreisamtal, when Bruno von Hohenburg (later Bishop of Strasbourg) founded the monastery of St Märgen in 1118, accepted by the Zähringer family under a settlement reached by arbitration in 1121[202].  After gaining control of the road from the Breisgau, they founded the towns of Freiburg and Villingen at each end, as well as Offenburg, to consolidate their position[203].  They acquired Breisach in 1198[204]

 

The Dukes of Zähringen achieved internal administrative authority and territorial unity due to the lack of serious rivals, their ducal title (which attracted more prestige and authority than if they had been mere counts), encouraging colonisation into the uninhabited Black Forest areas, and fostering commercial development by granting freedoms to the citizens of the towns they founded such as Freiburg.  Their land  became one of the earliest "new" territorial states in Germany which did not trace its development to evolution from one of the ancient tribal duchies.  Their unified state did not survive the extinction of the dynasty in 1218, as the lands on the eastern bank of the Rhine were inherited by the Grafen von Urach, while the Burgundian and Swiss properties went to the Grafen von Kiburg, and on the extinction of the latter in 1263 to the Grafen von Habsburg, a fragmentation which mirrored the process experienced in most parts of medieval Germany. 

 

The Genealogia Zaringorum[205] was written at the monastery of St Peter in the Black Forest, early in the 13th century judging by its recording the death of the youngest son of Konrad Duke of Zähringen.  It is accompanied by a Continuatio, probably written just over a century later as it ends with a marriage dated elsewhere to before 1318. 

 

 

BERTHOLD, son of BERTHOLD I "the Bearded" Duke of Carinthia & his first wife Richwara of Swabia [Babenberg] ([1050]-12 Apr 1111, bur St Peter im Schwarzwald)The Genealogia Zaringorum names "Berchtoldus" son of "Berchtoldus Cum-barba", referring to him first among the brothers, specifying that he was buried at St Peter in 1111[206].  The Gesta Friderici of Otto of Freising records that "Berhtolfus de castro Zaringen" usurped the duchy of Swabia after his father-in-law died[207], although this does not appear to have happened until after the death of his brother-in-law.  Berthold took over the rights and estates of his brother-in-law Berthold von Rheinfelden in Swabia and Burgundy on the latter's death in 1090[208].  He was installed as BERTHOLD II Duke of Swabia in 1092 by Emperor Heinrich IV.  He was unable to obtain effective control and in 1098 renounced his claims to Swabia[209] in favour of Friedrich [I] von Staufen, although he retained the title of duke and was enfeoffed with imperial estates in and around Zürich[210]Mayer says that Berthold II retained "both the Reichsvogtei in Zürich and the title duke"[211]He was installed in 1092 as BERTHOLD II Duke of Carinthia, in opposition to Duke Heinrich II [Eppenstein].  Together with Duke Welf IV, he organised an oath of peace at Ulm in 1093, valid for Swabia and later extended to Bavaria, to strengthen opposition to the Salian monarchy[212].  He founded Kloster St Peter in Schwarzwald in 1093.  He adopted the title Herzog von Zähringen from 1100, named after his family castle.  The Gesta Friderici of Otto of Freising comments that Berthold held "the empty title of duke" without the substance[213].  The necrology of St Peter im Schwarzwald records the death "II Id Apr" of "Berchtoldus 2 dux de Zaeringen qui primus huius loci fundator extitit 1111"[214]

m ([1077/79]) AGNES von Rheinfelden, daughter of RUDOLF von Rheinfelden Duke of Swabia [later King of Germany] & his second wife Adelaide de Savoie (-19 Dec 1111).  The Genealogia Zaringorum names "Agnes filia regis Rudolfi Arulacensis" wife of "Berchtoldus", specifying that she was buried with her husband at St Peter in 1111[215].  The Annales of Berthold record the marriage in 1079 of "Berhtoldus marchio, ducis Berhtoldi filius, adolescens" and "Agnetem, Roudolfi regis filiam"[216].  The Gesta Friderici of Otto of Freising records that "Berhtolfus de castro Zaringen" married "Radolfi filia" but does not name her[217].  The necrology of St Peter im Schwarzwald records the death "XIV Kal Jan" of "Agnes uxor ducis Berchtoldi et filia Ruodolfi regis de Arle"[218]

Herzog Berthold & his wife had nine children: 

1.         BERTHOLD (-killed in battle near Molsheim 19 Feb 1122, bur St Peter im Schwarzwald)The Genealogia Zaringorum names "Berchtoldus…et Conradus" as sons of "Berchtoldus", specifying that Berthold was the older son, his death in battle at Molsheim in Alsace against "comite Hugone de Tagsburg", and burial at St Peter in 1122[219]The documents dated Feb 1111 relating to the coronation of Heinrich V King of Germany as emperor name "Fridericum filium sororis suæ, marchionem Engilbertum, marchionem Thiebaldus, comitem Hermannum, Fridericum palatinum comitem de Saxonia, Berlingarium de Bavaria, Godefridum comitem, Fridericum Saxonum, Albertum cancellarium, Cononem fratri Berengarii, Sigebot de Bavaria, Henricum ducem Carinthie, Bertoldum filium ducis Bertoldi" as the emperor's guarantors[220]He succeeded his father in 1111 as BERTHOLD III Herzog von Zähringen.  Vogt of St Georgen 1114.  He founded the market at Freiburg im Breisgau by charter dated 1120[221]The necrology of St Peter im Schwarzwald records the death "XI Kal Mar" of "Berchtoldus 3 dux de Zaeringen"[222]Europäische Stammtafeln[223] records the death of Duke Berthold III on "3 Dec".  However, the necrology of St Peter im Schwarzwald assigns this date to Duke Berthold V.  m as her first husband, SOPHIE of Bavaria, daughter of HEINRICH IX "dem Schwarzen" Duke of Bavaria [Welf] & his wife Wulfhild of Saxony (-10 Jul before 1147).  The Historia Welforum names (in order) "Iuditham, Sophiam, Mahtildem, Wulfildem" as the four daughters of "Heinricus dux ex Wulfilde", specifying that Sophie married firstly "Bertoldus dux de Zaringen" and secondly "Leopaldus marchio de Stira"[224]The Annalista Saxo names "Heinricum inclitum ducem Saxonie et Bawarie et Welfonem et quatuor filias" as children of Duke Heinrich & his wife Wulfhild, specifying that Sophie (named second in the list of daughters) married firstly "Bertoldus dux de Zaringe" and secondly "marchio Liuppoldus de Stire"[225]The Genealogia Zaringorum names "Sophya soror Heinrici ducis Saxonie" as wife of "Berchtoldus", specifying that they were childless and that she married secondly "comiti de Stire"[226]She married secondly ([1122/23]) Leopold “der Starke” Markgraf of Styria.  The necrology of Admunt records the death "VI Id Jul" of "Sophya ex marchionissa cv"[227].  The necrology of Weingarten records the death "V Id Jul" of "Suophia com de Stira hic sepulta"[228]

2.         [BERTHOLD] (-3 May ----).  The Genealogia Zaringorum names "Berchtoldus…et Rudolfus" as brothers of "Conradus", specifying that they were "in adolescentia defuncti" and buried in the same tomb as Konrad[229].  It appears that "Berchtoldus" was a different brother from "Berchtoldus dux", unless the latter was younger than is otherwise indicated above when he died.  If this is a different brother, it is possible that the name is an error, as this would be the only example in this family of two brothers being given the same first name. 

3.         KONRAD ([1095]-8 Jan 1152, bur St Peter im Schwarzwald)The Genealogia Zaringorum names "Berchtoldus…et Conradus" as sons of "Berchtoldus"[230]He succeeded his brother in 1122 as KONRAD I Herzog von Zähringen.

-        see below

4.         RUDOLF (-[11 Nov/Dec] 1111).  The Genealogia Zaringorum names "Berchtoldus…et Rudolfus" brothers of "Conradus", specifying that they were "in adolescentia defuncti" and buried in the same tomb as Konrad[231]

5.         [LIUTGARD (-9 Aug ----).  The necrology of St Peter im Schwarzwald records the death "V Id Aug" of "Lutgart filia ducis Berchtoldi"[232].  Presumably this refers to an otherwise unrecorded child who died young.  She may have been the daughter either of Duke Berthold II or of Duke Berthold IV.  It is slightly more probable that Duke Berthold II was the father as he is the only duke referred to in other entries in the necrology without a number, presumably being considered by the compiler as not requiring a clarifying qualification as he was the founder of the monastery and therefore in his eyes the most important of the dukes.] 

6.         LIUTGARD (-25 Mar ----).  The Annales Sindelfingenses name "sorori suæ [=comes Albertus Axinbart, residens in castro Sindolphingen] Uotæ", identified as Adalbert [II] Graf von Calw, as mother of "Uotam [uxorem Welphoni de Spoleto] et Lutgardam"[233].  This document appears garbled, considering the following source.  The necrology of St Peter im Schwarzwald records the death "VIII Kal Apr" of "Liugart com soror ducis"[234].  Although this entry is cryptic, the only ducal family recorded in the other entries was that of Zähringen.  On the basis of the information currently available, Liutgard sister of Duke Konrad I is the only member of the family with this name.  The primary source which confirms her marriage more precisely has not yet been identified.  m GOTTFRIED [I] Graf von Calw, son of ADALBERT [II] Graf von Calw & his wife Wiltrudis of Upper Lotharingia (-6 Feb 1131).  He was installed in 1113 as Pfalzgraf von Lothringen [am Rhein]. 

7.         AGNES .  The Relatio Piis Operibus Ottonis Episcopi Bambergensis names "Agnate palatina comitissa", implying that she was sister of "Chuno dux"[235]This is confirmed by the Gesta Friderici of Otto of Freising which names her son "Gwillehelmus…puer…ex parte patris consanguineus, Conradi vero ducis sororis filius"[236]m ([1107]) GUILLAUME II Comte Palatin de Bourgogne et Comte de Mâcon, son of RENAUD II Comte Palatin de Bourgogne & his wife Regina von Oltigen ([1085]-murdered after 3 Jan 1125).   

8.         PETRISSA 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"[237]m (before 12 Apr 1111) FREDERIC Comte de Ferrette, son of THIERRY de Mousson & his wife Ermentrude de Bourgogne [Comté] ([1080]-19 Jul [1160], bur Oelenberg).  He subscribed an act in 1111 with his father-in-law[238]

9.         JUDITH (-5 Aug ----).  Ortlieb's Chronicon of Zwiefalten names "Iudintæ filiæ Berhtolfi ducis de Zaringen natæ" in a list of those who became nuns at Zwiefalten[239].  The primary source which confirms her marriage has not yet been identified.  m ULRICH [II] Graf von Gammertingen, son of ULRICH [I] Graf von Gammertingen & his wife Adelheid von Dillingen (-12 Jun [1144/50]).  Vogt von St Gallen 1120. 

 

 

KONRAD von Zähringen, son of BERTHOLD II Herzog von Zähringen [Baden] & his wife Agnes von Rheinfelden ([1095]-8 Jan 1152, bur St Peter im Schwarzwald)The Genealogia Zaringorum names "Berchtoldus…et Conradus" as sons of "Berchtoldus", specifying that Konrad succeeded his brother and was buried "in sepulcro parentum suorum" in 1152[240]He succeeded his brother in 1122 as KONRAD I Herzog von Zähringen.  Vogt of St Blasien 1125.  He claimed the county of Burgundy after the death of his nephew in 1127.  The Gesta Friderici of Otto of Freising records that Emperor Lothar granted Konrad "comitatum inter Iurum et montem Iovis" after the death of "Willehlmi comitis", referring to Guillaume Count of Burgundy[241]Lothar von Süpplingenburg King of Germany conferred the territory on Konrad in order further to isolate the Staufen family, his rivals in southern Germany[242].  Duke of Burgundy 1138.  He was apparently the only German prince to take part in the crusade against the Wends in [1149][243].  He allied himself with the Welf party in southern Germany, confirmed by his daughter's marriage to Heinrich "der Löwe" Duke of Saxony[244]The Annales Engelbergenses record the death in 1152 of "Chounradus dux"[245].  The necrology of St Peter im Schwarzwald records the death "VI Id Jan" of "Cuonradus dux de Zaeringen"[246]

m ([1130]) CLEMENCE de Namur, daughter of GODEFROI I Comte de Namur & his second wife Ermesinde de Luxembourg ([1114/15] -28 Dec 1158, bur St Peter im Schwarzwald).  The Genealogia Zaringorum names "Clementia de nobilissuma progenie Francorum de castro…Nammecensi" as wife of "Conradus", specifying that she was buried in the same tomb as her husband[247].  The Chronicle of Alberic de Trois-Fontaines names (in order) "ducissa Cyringie…Beatrix…Alidis…" as the three daughters of "comes Godefridus de Namuco" & his second wife[248].  The Chronicon Hanoniense refers to the three daughters of "Godefridus comes Namurcensi" & his second wife as "ducissam…Ciringiorum et comitissam de Retest et…Alidem comitissam Hanoniensem"[249].  The necrology of St Peter im Schwarzwald records the death "V Kal Jan" of "Clementia ductrix"[250]

Herzog Konrad & his wife had six children: 

1.         KONRAD (-4 Jan before 1140).  A list of founders of the monastery of St Peter in Schwarzwald names (in order) "Cunradus, Rudolfus, Adalbertus, Hugo" as the four brothers of "Berchtoldus 4 dux"[251].  The Chronicle of Alberic de Trois-Fontaines names (in order) "Radulphum Leodiensium episcopum, ducem Bertoldum et Conradum et Albertum" as the children of "ducissa Cyringie [filia comitis Godefridi de Namuco]"[252].  The necrology of St Peter im Schwarzwald records the death "II Non Jan" of "Cuonradus filius ducis Cunradi"[253]

[Two possible brothers.  The chronology suggests that they could have been sons of Graf Ulrich [III], but the primary source which confirms that this speculation is correct has not been identified.  Their names were not otherwise associated with the earlier family of Grafen von Urach, the name Berthold being noted only after the marriage of Graf Egino [IV].] 

1.         GERHARD (-after [31 Jan] 1180).  Graf von Urach.  "...Gerhardus et Bertholdus comites de Uraha..." witnessed the charter dated [31 Jan] 1180 under which Emperor Friedrich I confirmed the settlement of a dispute in favour of Kloster Kitzingen[591]

2.         [BERTHOLD (-after [31 Jan] 1180).  Graf von Urach.  "...Gerhardus et Bertholdus comites de Uraha..." witnessed the charter dated [31 Jan] 1180 under which Emperor Friedrich I confirmed the settlement of a dispute in favour of Kloster Kitzingen[592].]  same person as...?  BERTHOLD (-after Jun 1214).  Graf von Urach"…Comes Egino et comes Bertoldus de Urach…" witnessed the charter dated Jun 1214 under which Friedrich II King of Germany confirmed property of "Henrico de Randeg" to Kloster Salem[593].  This Graf Berthold has not been identified.  It is unlikely that Berthold, son of Graf Egino [IV] (the other witness), would have been accorded the comital title. It is possible that the two witnesses were brothers, in which case Berthold may have been the same person as Berthold supposed brother of Graf Gerhard. 

 

 

EGINO [IV] "der Bärtige" von Urach, son of --- (-12 Jan [1230], bur Tennenbach).  The primary source which confirms his parentage has not been identified.  The chronology suggests that Egino [III] Graf von Urach would have been too old to have the father of Egino [IV].  Graf von Urach.  "Comes Lodewicus de Werthenberc, comes Egeno de Ura…" witnessed the charter dated 18 May 1181 under which Emperor Friedrich I granted protection to the church at Denkendorf[594].  “...Egeno comes de Urach...” witnessed the charter dated 1185 under which Friedrich Duke of Swabia granted protection to Salem monastery[595]Egeno...comes de Ura” confirmed his allegiance to Kloster Bebenhausen by charter dated to [1188], witnessed by “Albertus dux de Tecche, Rudolfus palatinus de Tuingen et frater eius Hugo...[596].  "…Comes Egino et comes Bertoldus de Urach…" witnessed the charter dated Jun 1214 under which Friedrich II King of Germany confirmed property of "Henrico de Randeg" to Kloster Salem[597].  Friedrich II King of Germany confirmed imperial property at Dürbheim, which “Bertoldus miles de Egisheim” held in fief from “comite Egenone de Urach...et filio illius Egenoni”, to Kloster Rotenmünster by charter dated 17 May 1217[598].  “Egeno...comes in Ura” donated property in “Cimburbuch” to Kloster Bebenhausen, with the consent of “nostrorum liberorum...Egenonis iunioris comitis de Friburch, Rudolfi et Bertoldi comitum de Ura”, by charter dated 27 Nov 1228[599]The necrology of Tennenbach records the burial in the monastery "II Id Jan" of "Ego com de Urach…secundus dictus mit dem Bart dominus in Friburg et Agnes eiusdem coniunx ducis Bertoldi de Zaeringen V et ultimi soror"[600].  This entry is somewhat confusing as Egino [V] was “dominus in Friburg”, whereas the other information relates to Egino [IV]. 

m AGNES von Zähringen, daughter of BERTHOLD IV Herzog von Zähringen & his first wife Heilwig [von Froburg] (-1 May [1236]).  The Chronicle of Alberic de Trois-Fontaines names "ducem Bertoldum…et duas sorores" as children of "ducem Bertoldum" & his wife, specifying that the elder daughter married "comiti Huguenoni de Eura in Suavia"[601].  The Genealogia Zaringorum names "Agnes" as one of the two sisters of "Berchtoldum rectorem Brisgaudie et Burgundie crudelissimum", specifying that she married "comiti Egenoni seniori Cum-Barba dicto" and that they were parents of "Egenonem qui contraxit cum Adelheid de Nifen et hic primus intravit dominium Friburg et est sepultus in Teninbach monasterio…qui genuti Cunradum comitem, qui contraxit cum Sophya de Zolre.  Qui genuit Egenonem comitem, qui contraxit Katerina de Lichtenberg.  Qui genuit Cunradum comitem, qui contraxit cum filia ducis Lutoringie.  Qui genuit Fridericum, qui contraxit cum filia Rudolfi margravii de Hachberg"[602]

2.         [BURCHARD [II] von Usenberg (-before 16 Oct 1248, bur Wonnental).  He is named as deceased in the 1248 charter quoted below.]  m --- von Urach, daughter of EGINO [IV] "der Bärtige" Graf von Urach & his wife Agnes von ZähringenThe primary source which confirms her parentage and marriage has not been identified.  Burchard [II] & his wife had one child: 

a)         HESSO von Usenberg .  "Hermannus et Rudolfus frater meus marchiones de Baden" confirmed that "R. & B. fratres de Usenberc, Hessoni filio domini B. de Usenberc defuncti" held “feodum in Eistat” from them, by charter dated 1248[665]

 

 

1.         HESSO von Usenberg (-after 1306).  “Hesso...dominus de Usinberc” confirmed a donation to Wonnenthal convent made by “patruo meo Rudolfo bone memorie domino de Usinberc”, with the consent of “...Cunradi avunculi mei comitis de Friburc [Ulrici] consanguinei mei domini de Rapoldesteine tutorum...meorum”, by charter dated 16 Aug 1259[666].  "Hesso et Ruod. junior de Uesinberg" settled a dispute with St Trudpert “super sylva Ramspach” by charter dated 24 Apr 1283[667]...Hern Hessen von Usenberg und Hern Rudolfen von Usenberg...” were named in the charter dated 1300 issued by “Graven Egen und sine Sune Graven Cunrate von Vriburg[668].  "Herr Hesso von Usenberg unn unser Sun Burcart" consented to the sale of revenue from "gute ze Uringen" by charter dated 1306[669]m CLEMENTIA, daughter of --- (-[Jan] 1303, bur Wonnental).  The Manuel généalogique pour servir à l’histoire de la Suisse records the burial 1 Feb 1303 in Kloster Wonnental of “Clementa...Gattin des Hesso von Usenberg[670].  The Manuel then suggests that her name indicates a connection with “Clementia von Werdenberg”, supposed wife of Friedrich [III] Graf von Toggenburg.  If that is correct, she was Clementia von Toggenburg, daughter of Friedrich [III] Graf von Toggenburg & his wife [Clementia] [von Werdenberg].  The suggestion about her parentage appears highly speculative, implying (1) that the identity of Friedrich [III]’s wife is confirmed (open to debate, as discussed in the document GERMAN-SPEAKING SWITZERLAND) and (2) that no other families in southern Germany used the name Clementia (which is clearly not the case as the name arrived in the Werdenberg family from the comital family of Kiburg).  The name Clementia is not found among Hesso’s known descendants, which suggests that Clementia may have been his second wife and not the mother of his children.  Hesso & his wife had children: 

a)         BURCHARD von Usenberg (-[2 Dec 1331/30 Dec 1336]).  "Herr Hesso von Usenberg unn unser Sun Burcart" consented to the sale of revenue from "gute ze Uringen" by charter dated 1306[671]"Margrave Heinrich von Hahberg...mit unser Kinte Heinriches und Hermannus und...unsers öheimes Hugens und Herren Burchardus Herren von Usenberg" renounced rights in property of Thenebach sold by "unseren Herren selig unseren Vatter" by charter dated 1324[672]Burchart herre ze Usenburg” confirmed “daz dorf und gerichte ze Sliengen” to “hern Jacob von Ruwenuels Rittere”, previously granted by “unser vatter selig her Hesse von Usenberg”,  by charter dated 2 Dec 1331[673]Johannes von Rapoltzsteine herre in der Obern stat”, on behalf of “der eptissen von Andelahe”, challenged “Heinriches des margraven von Hachberg” in relation to property donated to Andlau by “her Burchart selige von Usenberg” by charter dated 30 Dec 1336[674]m ---.  The primary source which names Burchard’s wife has not been identified.  Burchard & his wife had five children:

A.      HERREN und GRAFEN von EBERSTEIN

 

 

Schloß Eberstein was located on a mountain between the valleys of the rivers Murg and Oos, near Baden-Baden.  In the 13th century, the family moved to Neu Eberstein, near Gernsbach.  The primary sources which confirm the parentage and marriages of the following family have not yet been identified, unless otherwise stated below. 

 

 

1.         BERTHOLD [I] von Eberstein (-after 1085).  "Bertoldus de Eberstein et duo filii Bertoldus et Eberhardus" witnessed a charter dated 1085 under which Wazzelius and Mangold von Lienstetten donated property[698]m ---.  The name of Berthold's wife is not known.  Berthold [I] & his wife had two children:

a)         BERTHOLD [II] (-after 1085).  "Bertoldus de Eberstein et duo filii Bertoldus et Eberhardus" witnessed a charter dated 1085 under which Wazzelius and Mangold von Lienstetten donated property[699]

b)         EBERHARD [I] (-after 1085).  "Bertoldus de Eberstein et duo filii Bertoldus et Eberhardus" witnessed a charter dated 1085 under which Wazzelius and Mangold von Lienstetten donated property[700]

 

2.         BERTHOLD (-before [1113]).  The Codex Hirsaugiensis records that “Bertholdus et uxor eius Adelhait de Eberstein cum filiis suis Bertholdo, Eberhardo et Hugone” donated “quartam partem ville Eltingen” to Kloster Hirsau, for the soul of “mariti sui” who was on his deathbed, undated[701].  The chronology is consistent with the husband of Adelheid being either Berthold [I] or Berthold [II] who are shown above.  m ADELHEID, daughter of --- (-after [1113]).  The Codex Hirsaugiensis records that “Bertholdus et uxor eius Adelhait de Eberstein cum filiis suis Bertholdo, Eberhardo et Hugone” donated “quartam partem ville Eltingen” to Kloster Hirsau, for the soul of “mariti sui” who was on his deathbed, undated[702].  Four children: 

a)         BERTHOLD [III] von Eberstein (-after 18 Jul 1137).  Consistent with the observation concerning the identity of the husband of Adelheid, mother of Berthold [III] and his two brothers, it is possible that Berthold [III] was the same person as Berthold [II] who is shown above.  The Codex Hirsaugiensis records that “Bertholdus et uxor eius Adelhait de Eberstein cum filiis suis Bertholdo, Eberhardo et Hugone” donated “quartam partem ville Eltingen” to Kloster Hirsau, for the soul of “mariti sui” who was on his deathbed, undated[703].  "…Bertholdus de Eberstein et filius sororis eius Wecel de Zolra…" witnessed the charter, dated "VI Kal Jun" 1115 and "post XX diebus et uno…XIV Kal Jul", under which "Liutfridus" donated property "in Onesvvilare" to Kloster Reichenbach[704].  "Burkardus de Scibenhard per manum domni sui Bertoldi de Eberstein" donated property at Singen to Kloster Hirschau by charter dated to [1120][705].  "Bertoldus von Eberstein und Emich von Wirtenberg" are named in the foundation book of Kloster Hirschau dated 1136[706].  "Bertoldus von Eberstein und Emich von Wirtenberg" are named in the foundation book of Kloster Hirschau dated 1136[707].  "…Bertholdo seniore et iuniore, Hugone de Eberstein…" witnessed the charter dated 18 Jul 1137 which records an agreement between Speyer cathedral and the abbot of Odenheim concerning property at Elsenz and Berenbach[708]m ---.  The name of Berthold's wife is not known.  Berthold [III] & his wife had one child: 

i)          BERTHOLD [IV] von Eberstein (-1158 or after, bur Herrenalb).  "…Bertholdo seniore et iuniore, Hugone de Eberstein…" witnessed the charter dated 18 Jul 1137 which records an agreement between Speyer cathedral and the abbot of Odenheim concerning property at Elsenz and Berenbach[709].  "Bertholdus dominus de Eberstein" founded Kloster Herrenalb, with the consent of "coniugis nostre Ute et heredum nostrorum", by charter dated to [1149/52][710].  The History of Salem Monastery lists those present at a court of "duce Friderico", including "Bertoldo de Ebirstein", undated but dateable to [1152][711]Konrad Bishop of Worms confirmed donations to Kloster Schönau by charter dated 1152 witnessed by "Heinricus comes de Chacenelenbogen, Bobbo comes de Loufen, Egere comes de Vehingen, Berchtolt comes de Calwen, Bertholdus de Eberstein…"[712]"Egene comes de Vehingen, Conradus comes de Calwe, Wezelo comes de Grezingen, Bertoldus de Eberstein…" witnessed the charter dated 1158 under which Günther Bishop of Speyer donated property to Kloster Maulbronn[713].  [Graf] von Eberstein.  A non-contemporaneous inscription at Herrenalb records the burial of "Berchtoldi comitis de Eberstein et domine Ute uxoris eius fundatorum hujus monasterii et plurimorum comitum de Eberstein"[714].  It should be noted that this is the only source so far identified which accords the comital title to Berthold [IV].  It is possible that this was an ex post facto invention, considered flattering to the status of the later Graf von Eberstein under whose auspices the monument was installed in the monastery.  m UTA, daughter of --- (-[1185], bur Herrenalb).  "Bertholdus dominus de Eberstein" founded Kloster Herrenalb, with the consent of "coniugis nostre Ute et heredum nostrorum", by charter dated to [1149/52][715].  According to Neuenstein, she was "Utta von Sinsheim", suggesting that she was "aus dem Geschlechte der Grafen im Kraichgau, die eine Burg zu Sinsheim besassen"[716].  An inscription at Herrenalb records the burial of "Berchtoldi comitis de Eberstein et domine Ute uxoris eius fundatorum hujus monasterii et plurimorum comitum de Eberstein"[717].  Berthold [IV] & his wife had [four] children: 

(a)       [WETZEL (-after 1163).  Graf von Eberstein.  "…Wetzele comes de Eberstein…" witnessed the charter dated 1163 under which "Friedrich der Rothbart" donated property to Kloster Mauermünster[718].  There is no indication of the parentage of Graf Wetzel but, assuming that he was a member of the same family as the other Grafen von Eberstein, from a chronological point of view it is probable that he was the son and successor of Berthold [IV].  However, it should be noted that no other reference has been found to the name Wetzel in any other record relating to this family.] 

(b)       EBERHARD [III] (-[1218/19]).  "Ebrahrdus de Ebrestin" confirmed the donation of property "in villa…Gelstorf in Berowa" to Kloster Berau (founded by "ego et mater mea") made by "pater meus Berchtoldus…cum filias suas sorores meas Otam et Heduwidem" by charter dated to [1185][719]

UTA (-after 1193).  Krieg von Hochfelden suggests that "Uta" abbess of Frauenalb, named in a bull of Pope Celestine III dated 1193, was "möglich…eine Tochter Bertholds und nach ihrer Mutter genannt wurde"[721].  The last phrase suggests that his hypothesis is based only on onomastics, supported by no other evidence.  Nun at Berau [1150].  Abbess of Frauenalb 1193.] 

(d)       HADWIDE .  "Ebrahrdus de Ebrestin" confirmed the donation of property "in villa…Gelstorf in Berowa" to Kloster Berau (founded by "ego et mater mea") made by "pater meus Berchtoldus…cum filias suas sorores meas Otam et Heduwidem" by charter dated to [1185][722].  Nun at Berau [1150].  Nun at Frauenalb. 

b)         EBERHARD [II] .  Consistent with the observation concerning the identity of the husband of Adelheid, mother of Berthold [III] and his two brothers, it is possible that Eberhard [II] was the same person as Eberhard [I] who is shown above.  The Codex Hirsaugiensis records that “Bertholdus et uxor eius Adelhait de Eberstein cum filiis suis Bertholdo, Eberhardo et Hugone” donated “quartam partem ville Eltingen” to Kloster Hirsau, for the soul of “mariti sui” who was on his deathbed, undated[723]

c)         HUGO von Eberstein (-after 18 Jul 1137).  The Codex Hirsaugiensis records that “Bertholdus et uxor eius Adelhait de Eberstein cum filiis suis Bertholdo, Eberhardo et Hugone” donated “quartam partem ville Eltingen” to Kloster Hirsau, for the soul of “mariti sui” who was on his deathbed, undated[724].  "…Bertholdo seniore et iuniore, Hugone de Eberstein…" witnessed the charter dated 18 Jul 1137 which records an agreement between Speyer cathedral and the abbot of Odenheim concerning property at Elsenz and Berenbach[725]

d)         daughter .  Her parentage and marriage are indicated by the following document: "…Bertholdus de Eberstein et filius sororis eius Wecel de Zolra…" witnessed the charter, dated "VI Kal Jun" 1115 and "post XX diebus et uno…XIV Kal Jul", under which "Liutfridus" donated property "in Onesvvilare" to Kloster Reichenbach[726]m --- von Zollern, son of ---. 

 

 

EBERHARD [III] von Eberstein, son of BERTHOLD [IV] von Eberstein & his wife Uta --- (-[1218/19]).  "…Duce Konrade de Dachowe dux, Otdone comite de Chilberc, Eberhardus de Eberstein…" witnessed the charter dated 1181 under which the Graf von Tübingen donated property in Derdingen to Kloster Herrenalb[727].  "Ebrahrdus de Ebrestin" confirmed the donation of property "in villa…Gelstorf in Berowa" to Kloster Berau (founded by "ego et mater mea") made by "pater meus Berchtoldus…cum filias suas sorores meas Otam et Heduwidem" by charter dated to [1185][728]Eberhardum de Eberstein...” witnessed the charter dated 13 Apr 1197 of “Hermannus...marchio Veronensis...et frater meus” relating to “Salsensis...advocatiam[729]"Eberhardus…dominus de Eberstein" confirmed a donation to Kloster Herrenalb by charter dated 1207, witnessed by "Eberhardo et Ottone domicellis de Eberstein, Alberto de Rastede et Eberhardo fratre suo…"[730].  "Eberhardus…dominus de Eberstein…et uxor nostra Chunigunt et filii mei Eberhardus et Otto, Bertholdus et Albertus" donated property to Kloster Herrenalb by charter dated 1207, witnessed by "Cunrado et Godefrido comitibus de Kalwe, comite Fridrico de Saroponte…"[731]

m ([1185/90]) KUNIGUNDE von Andechs, daughter of BERTHOLD I Marchese of Istria, Graf von Andechs & his first wife Hedwig --- (-10 Feb after 1207).  The De Fundatoribus Monasterii Diessenses lists (in order) "Poppo summus prepositus Babenberch, Mathildis marchionissa de Hohenburch, Kunigundis comitissa de Eberstein, Sophia comitissa de Hennenberch, Berhtoldus dux et marchio…"[732], increasing the probability that all were children of "Berhtoldus marchio".  The chronology of the two families suggests [1185/90] as the date of Kunigunde´s marriage.  "Eberhardus…dominus de Eberstein…et uxor nostra Chunigunt et filii mei Eberhardus et Otto, Bertholdus et Albertus" donated property to Kloster Herrenalb by charter dated 1207, witnessed by "Cunrado et Godefrido comitibus de Kalwe, comite Fridrico de Saroponte…"[733]The necrology of Diessen records the death "IV Id Feb" of "Chunigundis com"[734]1207.]

Adelheidis de Eberstein uxor dni. Henrici de Lichtenberg” without citing the source from which he takes this quote[781].  The question of the identity of Adelheid’s husband is discussed under Lichtenberg in the document ALSACE.  m (contract 8 Jan 1251) HEINRICH von Lichtenberg, son of [HEINRICH [II] von Lichtenberg & his wife ---].

m ---.  The primary source which confirms the name of Walter’s wife has not been identified.  The following documents suggest that she was --- von Fürstenberg, daughter of Egon Graf von Fürstenberg & his wife --- von Hachberg: “Walther herr zu Gerolzecke” and “myne vetter Georige von Veldenzen” reached agreement concerning certain properties in Alsace, naming “grauen Ecken von Furstenberg mynen sweher und lantgraue Ulrichen von Elsass und mynen vettern Walther von Gerolzecken den alten” as guarantors, by charter dated 25 Sep 1314[914].  “Walther herre ze Geroltzegge” promised property to “grave Gotze min swager” by charter dated 30 Apr 1323[915].  This assumes that “swager” can be interpreted in its strict sense of brother-in-law, which is not necessarily the case.  In particular, it is not impossible that the term refers to the indirect relationship between Walter Herr von Geroldseck and his cousin Walter von Geroldseck Herr von Sultz (see below), who was the son of Anna von Fürstenberg (a first cousin of Gottfried Graf von Fürstenberg).
