INTRODUCTION

 

 

The Bavarian group of nobility presents numerous genealogical challenges to the researcher, despite the richness of primary source material on which family reconstructions can be based.  These difficulties are explained fully in the relevant chapters of this document, but the Grafen von Diessen and the Grafen von Lechsgemünd can be cited as two example families which present many problems.  The difficulties are not merely of academic significance.  Many of the families of the Bavarian nobility acquired a considerable degree of political power, as shown by the examples of the Grafen von Diessen und Andechs who were appointed dukes of Merano in northern Italy, the Wittelsbach family who succeeded as dukes of Bavaria, and the Markgrafen von Schweinfurt who achieved a position of great influence at the German court of Emperors Heinrich II and Konrad III in the earlier part of the 11th century.  Many of the Bavarian noble families made high-profile diplomatic marriages into prominent noble and royal families both in central Europe and beyond.  In addition, the duchy of Carinthia and the march (later duchy) of Austria were both created out of the original territory of the kingdom (later duchy) of Bavaria, providing new scope for expansion for the Bavarian nobility. 

 

As will be seen, much of the source material in this document is as cited or quoted by Wilhelm Wegener[1].  It has not yet been possible to verify all of these citations against the originals but full references (as shown by Wegener, who is sometimes cryptic) are given to facilitate such an exercise in the future.  Many of the connections suggested by Wegener are based solely on onomastics and do not appear to be supported by other indications.  Where this is the case, the uncertainty of the relationship has been highlighted.  A particular problem is presented by his treatment of the Grafen von Diessen in which his speculations appear especially tenuous, as can be seen below in the chapter dealing with this family. 

 

 

 

 

Chapter 1.    GRAFEN von ANDECHS

 

 

 

The possessions of the Bavarian family of the Grafen von Andechs originally lay between the upper Lech and upper Isar rivers.  They later added land in Franconia, Tyrol, Carinthia and Istria[2].  In 1180, Emperor Friedrich I "Barbarossa" dissolved the vassal relationship between the Grafen von Andechs, as marchesi of Istria and Carniola, with the dukes of Bavaria[3].  After the death of Konrad III Graf von Dachau in [1180/82], the Grafen von Andechs were installed as dukes of Merano. 

 

 

BERTHOLD [von Diessen], son of ARNOLD Graf von Diessen & his wife Gisela --- (-27 Jun 1151, bur Diessen).  The parentage of Berthold Graf von Andechs is deduced from the list of names in the De Fundatoribus Monasterii Diessenses (see the chapter dealing with the Grafen von Diessen for full details) and because Konrad von Diessen ("Chonradus de Iagobesberg") is described as his patruus (see below).  It is confirmed by the necrology of Diessen recording the death "Feb VI Id" of "Arnoldus com sepultus Atile pater comitis Bertoldi fundatoris nostri"[4].  On the other hand, the necrology of Diessen records the death "Feb XVI Kal" of "Irmilgardis, mater domini Perchtoldi"[5], although it is not certain to which Berthold this refers.  Graf von Andechs 1106/1113.  "Perhtoldus Comes et eius patruus Chonradus de Iagobesberg" donated a serf to Weihenstefan monastery, dated to [1097/1114][6].  Graf von Diessen: "Berhtolfus Comes de Diezzen" donated serfs to Diessen monastery, in the presence of "uxore sua Sophia et filiis suis Poppone et Bertolfo"[7].  Graf von Plassenberg und von Stein 1130.  The Notæ Diessenses record the death "1151 V Kal Iul" of "Berhtoldus comes", specifying that he was "conversus nostræ congregationis frater" and "fundator huius loci", and was buried "in capitolio"[8]

m firstly SOPHIE of Istria, daughter of POPPO II Marchese of Istria & his wife Richgard von Sponheim ([1095/98]-6 Sep ----, bur Diessen).  The Historia Welforum refers to the two daughters of "Poponem marchionem", specifying that they married "unam Bertholfo comiti de Andehse, aliam Alberto comiti de Bogen"[9].  Her birth date range is estimated from the probable age of her father and his death in 1098.  "Berhtolfus Comes de Diezzen" donated serfs to Diessen monastery, in the presence of "uxore sua Sophia et filiis suis Poppone et Bertolfo"[10].  The De Fundatoribus Monasterii Diessenses records the death "VIII Id Sep" of "Sophia comitissa uxor Pertoldi comitis" specifying that she was buried "in capitulo"[11]

m secondly (after 1130) as her first husband, KUNIGUNDE von Formbach, daughter of EKBERT [II] Graf von Formbach und Pitten & his wife Willibirg ---.  The Codex Traditionum of Formbach monastery records a donation by "Comes Ekkebertus", with the consent of "Willebirga et filia ipsorum Chunigunda"[12].  The primary source which confirms her two marriages has not yet been identified.  The Vita Wirntonis names "dux Dalmatie et marchio Ystrie Berchtoldus" as brother-in-law of "comes Eckebertus" but does not name his wife[13].  She married secondly Ulrich von Deggendorf (-[1170]). 

Graf Berthold & his first wife had five children:

1.         POPPO [I] von Andechs (-Constantinople 11 Dec 1148).  "Berhtolfus Comes de Diezzen" donated serfs to Diessen monastery, in the presence of "uxore sua Sophia et filiis suis Poppone et Bertolfo"[14]Graf von Andechs 1137.  Graf von Plessenberg 1142.  Count of Carniola 1141.  Graf im Radenzgau.  Graf von Giech: a charter dated 1149 records an agreement between Eberhard Bishop of Bamberg and "Bopponem filium comitis Perchtolfi de Blassenberg" concerning "castrum…Gichburg" obtained from "comitis Regenbodonis a relicta comitis Cunizza per manus Wolframi comitis de Wertheim et Friderici comitis de Bichelingen, qui prefate matrone ex cognatione paterna et materna foremundi erant"[15].  A charter dated to [1150] records that "Poppo comes de Gieche" donated property to Admont before leaving for Jerusalem for the soul of "filio suo Heinrico", but that after he died on his expedition "frater eius Perchtoldus comes" reduced the amount of the donation[16].  The necrology of Diessen records the death "III Id Dec" of "Poppo com sepultus Constantinopoli filius Bertholdi comitis fundator nostri"[17]m (before 1139, divorced 1142) KUNIZA von Giech, daughter of REGINBOTO Graf von Giech & his wife --- (-13 Apr ----).  A charter dated 1142 records that "Chuniza, comitis Reginbodonis filia" was divorced from "comite Boppone de Blassenberch", witnessed by "comes Wolramus de Wertheim"[18].  A charter dated 1149 records an agreement between Eberhard Bishop of Bamberg and "Bopponem filium comitis Perchtolfi de Blassenberg" concerning "castrum…Gichburg" obtained from "comitis Regenbodonis a relicta comitis Cunizza per manus Wolframi comitis de Wertheim et Friderici comitis de Bichelingen, qui prefate matrone ex cognatione paterna et materna foremundi erant", naming "[comes Boppo]…cum filio suo Heinrico, quem ei Cunizza ante divortium genuerat…frater eius Bertolfus"[19].  Graf Poppo [I] & his wife had one child: 

a)         HEINRICH (-1 Feb [1180/86]).  Wegener refers to Poppo and his son Heinrich being granted Giech and Lichtenfels in [May/Jun] 1143[20].  Monk at Admont [1145].  A charter dated 1149 records an agreement between Eberhard Bishop of Bamberg and "Bopponem filium comitis Perchtolfi de Blassenberg" concerning "castrum…Gichburg" obtained from "comitis Regenbodonis a relicta comitis Cunizza per manus Wolframi comitis de Wertheim et Friderici comitis de Bichelingen, qui prefate matrone ex cognatione paterna et materna foremundi erant", naming "[comes Boppo]…cum filio suo Heinrico, quem ei Cunizza ante divortium genuerat…frater eius Bertolfus", by charter dated 1149[21].  A charter dated to [1150] records that "Poppo comes de Gieche" donated property to Admont before leaving for Jerusalem for the soul of "filio suo Heinrico"[22].  Abbot of Millstatt 1166.  The Vita Gebehardi records the appointment of "Heinricum abbatem Milstatensem, Popponis comitis filius" as abbot of Admont in [1171][23]

2.         BERTHOLD [II] (-14 Dec 1188).  His parentage is confirmed by the Notæ Diessenses which record the death "1188 XIX Kal Ian" of "Berhtoldus marchio de Andehs…filius Berhtoldi comitis fundatoris nostre ecclesie"[24]Graf von Andechs 1147.  Graf im Radenzgau 1140.  Graf von Plassenburg [1158/61].  Graf am unteren Inn 1162.  Graf im Norital and Vogt von Brixen 1166.  Marchese of Istria 1173.

4.         GISELA (-8 Apr after 1150).  The De Fundatoribus Monasterii Diessenses names "Gisilam comitissam de Perg" as one of the daughters of "Bertoldus comes de Andehs" and his wife Sophia, listing her last of their children[27].  The necrology of Diessen records the death "VI Id Apr" of "Gisila com de Berge"[28]m DIEPOLD [II] Graf von Berg, son of HEINRICH Graf von Berg & his wife Adelheid von Mochental (-19 May [1160/65]). 

5.         MATHILDE (-31 May 1160, bur Edelstetten).  The Notæ Diessenses names "Berhtoldus comes" as father of "beate Machthildis abbatisse", and in a later passage records the death "1160 II Kal Iun" of "Mathildis abbatissa de Otilinestetin" specifying that she was buried "ante altare sancti Iohannis baptiste"[29].  Abbess of Edelstetten 1154.  The necrology of Diessen records the death "Jun II Kal" of "Mathildis abb de Otilinestetin 1160 sepulta s Iohannis Baptiste filia Berhtoldi fundatoris nostri"[30]

Graf Berthold & his [second] wife had two children:

6.         KUNIGUNDE (-10 Dec ----).  "Perhtoldus comes de Andehsen" offered "filiam suam Chunigunt" to Admont by charter dated to [1130][31].  A charter dated to [1130] records donations to Admont by "Perhtoldus comes de Andehsen" to "filiam suam Chunigunt" when she became a nun there[32].  Wegener refers to a 16th century source which names "Chunigundis conversa de Admunde, filia Bertholdi de Andehs"[33].  The primary source which suggests that she was the daughter of her father's second marriage has not yet been identified.  Nun at Admont. 

7.         EUPHEMIA (-20 Jul 1180).  The primary source which suggests that she was the daughter of her father's second marriage has not yet been identified.  Abbess of Altomünster.  The Notæ Diessenses record the death "1180 XIV Kal Iul" of "Eufemia abbatissa de Altinmunstir", specifying that she was buried "ante altare sancti Iohannis evangeliste"[34].  The De Fundatoribus Monasterii Diessenses names "Eufemia abbatissa de Altenmünster, filia comitis Pertoldi" when recording her death and burial place[35].  The necrology of Diessen records the death "Jul XIV Kal" of "Eufemia abb de Altinmunstir 1180 sep s Iohannis ewangeliste filia fundatoris nostri Berhtoldi comitis"[36]

 

 

 

 

Chapter 2.    GRAFEN von BOGEN

 

 

 

1.         [ADALBERT] [I] m LUITGARD, daughter of --- (-25 Sep ----).  A charter dated 1104 records donations to Oberaltaich by "Adelheit advocata et tres filii eius Udalrich clericus, Fridreich advocatus matricula Tyberine civitatis Hartwich" and "Leukart de Windberg et duo filii eius Bertoldus, Albertus"[37].  This charter suggests that the two families must have been closely related, although the relationship is not specified.  This hypothesis is supported by another later joint donation recorded in the same source by "Domnus Friedrich et fratres sui Hartwicus et Oudalrich et Pertholdus filius Liutgarde" which also suggests a close relationship between the two families[38].  The primary source which confirms the name of her husband has not yet been identified.  Wegener speculates that she was Liutgard von Regensburg, sister of Domvogt Friedrich [I], because her son Berthold Graf von Windberg held territory along the Bohemian border in the same area as the territories of his presumed maternal uncles[39].  Another factor is the Notæ Genealogicæ Bavaricæ which name "Fridericus advocatus Ratispon senior et Albertus Pogn fratres"[40], although the precise relationship would be brothers-in-law if the speculation about Liutgard's origin is correct.  Another interpretation of this text would be that Adalbert, husband of Liutgard, was the brother of Friedrich [III] Domvogt von Regensburg.  A further possibility is that Liutgard and Adelheid were sisters, although, assuming that the origin of Adelheid is correctly recorded in this document, this is less likely to be correct as Adelheid´s niece married Liutgard´s son Adalbert.  "Domina Luitgard cometissa mater Adelberti Comitis" donated property to Oberaltaich[41].  The necrology of Mallersdorf records the death "VII Kal Oct" of "Liukhardis coma"[42].  The necrology of Windberg records the death "VII Kal Oct" of "Liutkart coma"[43].  Adalbert [I] & his wife had four children: 

a)         BERTHOLD [I] (-2 Aug 1141).  A charter dated 1104 records donations to Oberaltaich by "Leukart de Windberg et duo filii eius Bertoldus, Albertus"[44].  "Domnus Friedrich et fratres sui Hartwicus et Oudalrich et Pertholdus filius Liutgarde" donated property to Oberaltaich[45].  The necrology of Oberaltaich records the death "VIII Id Aug" of "Perthold comes"[46]m RICHGARD, daughter of --- (-8 Oct or 11 Apr ----).  The primary source which confirms her marriage has not yet been identified.  [1100/04]/1110.  The necrology of Oberaltaich records the death "III Id Apr" of "Richkart coma"[47].  The necrology of Windberg records the death "III Id Apr" of "Richart coma"[48]

b)         ADALBERT [II] (-13 Jan 1146).  A charter dated 1104 records donations to Oberaltaich by "Leukart de Windberg et duo filii eius Bertoldus, Albertus"[49]Graf von Bogen.  The De Advocatis Altahensibus records that "Aschwinus…comes de Bogen…dicitur Adilpertum comitem" was "advocatus Altahensis ecclesie" and founded the monastery at Windberg[50] in [1140].  "Adalbertum comitem uxoremque eius Hadwicam de Windeberge" donated property to Oberaltaich[51].  The necrology of Windberg records the death "Id Jan 1147" of "Adalbertus com fundator loci huius"[52].  The necrology of Wilten records the death "Id Jan" of "Adalberti comitis de Pogn"[53]m firstly ---.  The primary source which confirms her marriage has not yet been identified.  m secondly [as her second husband,] HEDWIG of Istria, [widow of HERMANN I Graf von Windberg Ratelberg und Winzenburg, Markgraf von Sachsen,] daughter of POPPO II Marchese di Carniola e Istria [Weimar] & his wife Richgard von Sponheim (-Windberg 1 Dec 1162).  The Historia Welforum refers to the two daughters of "Poponem marchionem", specifying that they married "unam Bertholfo comiti de Andehse, aliam Alberto comiti de Bogen"[54].  The De Advocatis Altahensibus names "Hadwigam" as wife of "Aschwinus…comes de Bogen…dicitur Adilpertum comitem", specifying that her husband was "advocatus Altahensis ecclesie"[55].  Her supposed first marriage has not so far been corroborated.  Wegener records that Hadewich, widow of Graf Heriman, donated property to Göttweig with her son Heriman by charter dated [1122], witnessed by Adalbert son of Markgraf Luitpold[56], but this does not link her to the Hedwig who was the wife of Graf Adalbert.  "Adalbertum comitem uxoremque eius Hadwicam de Windeberge" donated property to Oberaltaich[57].  The necrology of Windberg records the death "Kal Dec 1162" of "Hadewich coma et fundatrix loci huius"[58].  The necrology of Oberaltaich records the death "Kal Dec" of "Hadewic coma"[59].  Both of these necrology entries refer to the widow of Graf Hermann, who in particular was clearly linked to Windberg, but do not provide proof that she was the same person as the widow of Graf Adalbert.  Graf Adalbert [II] & his first wife had one child: 

i)          ENGELBERT .  The primary source which confirms his parentage, and that he was the son of his father's first marriage, has not yet been identified.  He is not named as one of Graf Adalbert's sons by his second wife in the De Advocatis Altahensibus ("Adalpertum, Haertwicum et Perhtoldum comites" children of "Aschwinus…comes de Bogen…dicitur Adilpertum comitem" and his wife Hedwig)[60], but this should not be taken as conclusive proof that he was the son of his father's first marriage as the source could have ignored children who died young.  [1100/04]/1110. 

Graf Adalbert [II] & his second wife had four children: 

ii)         ADALBERT [III] (-21 Jun 1141).  The De Advocatis Altahensibus names "Adalpertum, Haertwicum et Perhtoldum comites" as children of "Aschwinus…comes de Bogen…dicitur Adilpertum comitem" and his wife Hedwig, specifying that Adalbert was killed during the siege of "castri Phalaia circa 1140"[61].  Monk at St Blasien 1140.  The necrology of Windberg records the death "XI Kal Jul" of "Adelbertus com et m"[62]

iii)        HARTWIG (-6 Apr [1155/56]).  The De Advocatis Altahensibus names "Adalpertum, Haertwicum et Perhtoldum comites" as children of "Aschwinus…comes de Bogen…dicitur Adilpertum comitem" and his wife Hedwig, specifying that Hartwig was "homo pessimus [et] insaniendo vitam finivit"[63].  Graf von Bogen 1146.  "Frater eius Bertholdus" donated property to Gurk, after "comitis Hartwici de Bogen" joined the crusade, dated [29 May/Jun] 1149[64].  The necrology of Windberg records the death "VIII Id Apr" of "Hartwicus c v n ex comite"[65]m HEDWIG, daughter of --- (-23 Aug ----).  The necrology of Windberg records the death "X Kal Sep" of "Haedwic ex coma cvc sor nra"[66]

iv)       BERTHOLD [II] (-21 Mar 1167).  The De Advocatis Altahensibus names "Adalpertum, Haertwicum et Perhtoldum comites" as children of "Aschwinus…comes de Bogen…dicitur Adilpertum comitem" and his wife Hedwig, specifying that Bertold was "advocatus ecclesie Altahensis"[67]Graf von Bogen

-         see below

v)        HEILWIG (-14 Apr ----).  A donation to Geisenfeld monastery names "Heilwige Abbatissa sorore Bertoldi Comitis de Pogene"[68].  Nun at Obermünster, Regensburg.  The necrology of Windberg records the death "XVIII Kal Mai" of "Heilwic m in sup mon filia Alberti comitis fundatoris loci Windberg"[69]

Graf Adalbert [II] had one illegitimate child by an unknown mistress: 

vi)        RUDOLF von Menna .  The primary source which confirms his parentage has not yet been identified.  1147/[1167/68]. 

c)         LIUTGART (-after [1120]).  [1105/06]/1112.  The Chronica Boemorum records the marriage in Sep 1094 of "dux Bracizlaus" with "matronam de Bavaria nominee Lukarth"[70].  Her parentage is suggested by the donation of property to Oberaltaich by "Ductrix Luitgart soror Adelberti Comitis"[71], the same source recording numerous donations by Adalbert and his family which demonstrate that he was Graf von Bogen.  m (Sep 1094) BŘETISLAW II Duke of Bohemia, son of VRATISLAV II Duke of the Bohemians & his second wife Adelaida of Hungary (-murdered 22 Dec 1100). 

 

 

BERTHOLD [II] von Bogen, son of ADALBERT [II] Graf von Bogen & his second wife Hedwig von Windberg (-21 Mar 1167).  The De Advocatis Altahensibus names "Adalpertum, Haertwicum et Perhtoldum comites" as children of "Aschwinus…comes de Bogen…dicitur Adilpertum comitem" and his wife Hedwig, specifying that Bertold was "advocatus ecclesie Altahensis"[72]Graf von Bogen.  "Frater eius Bertholdus" donated property to Gurk, after "comitis Hartwici de Bogen" joined the crusade, dated [29 May/Jun] 1149[73].  The necrology of Admunt records the death "XIII Kal Apr" of "Perhtoldus com Bogen"[74].  The necrology of Windberg records the death "XII Kal Apr 1167" of "Perhtoldus com"[75].  The necrology of Unteraltaich records the death "XII Kal Apr" of "Perhtoldus com de Bogin"[76].  A charter dated 1168 records the death of "Perhtoldus comes de Pogene" and the donation to Admont by "uxor…illius Liukart"[77]

ARNOLD [von Scheyern], [brother of OTTO [I] Graf von Scheyern], son of --- & his wife [Haziga von Scheyern] (-1104).  The sources are contradictory regarding Arnold's parentage.  The Chronicon Schirense names "Otto, Pernhardus et Ekkehardus", sons of Graf Otto [I], as "patrueles" of Arnold's sons "comites Chuonradus et Otto de Dachawe"[197], which indicates that Arnold was paternal uncle of the three brothers assuming that the word patruelis is used in its strict sense.  However, Wegener cites sources dated [1080] and [1095] which name "nobiles viri Arnolt et Otto de Sciren" and "Otto et frater eius Arnolt de Skiren" respectively[198].  It is unlikely that Arnold was the son of Graf Otto [I] and his wife Haziga as the Chronicon Schirense names (in order) "Ottonem, Pernhardum et Ekkardum comites" as their three sons[199] and there seems little reason why another adult son should have been omitted.  Europäische Stammtafeln[200] shows Arnold as the son of Graf Otto [I] by a supposed first marriage with a sister of Arnold Graf von Diessen.  No primary source has been identified which supports this hypothesis.  It is not impossible that Arnold was born from an earlier marriage of Otto [I], although the common use of the name Arnold appears to be the only indication that such a first wife may have been related to the family of the Grafen von Diessen.  Another factor suggests that a first marriage of Graf Otto [I] into the Diessen family is unlikely:  as noted below, Graf Otto's necrology entry appears to place him in a subordinate position to his wife, which suggests that he was of inferior importance in the ranks of the local nobility.  It is unlikely that Otto would have been considered inferior if he had been the widower of the sister of Arnold Graf von Diessen, whose own importance was probably greater than that of the heiress of the Scheyern estates.  A further possibility is that Arnold was uterine brother of Otto, Bernhard and Ekkehard, son of Haziga by an earlier marriage, which seems to be the option which most closely explains the sources, providing that a broader interpretation of patruelis can be assumed.  Graf von Scheyern.  Graf von Dachau

m BEATRIX von Reipertshofen, daughter of KUNO Graf von Reipertshofen & his wife --- (-11 Feb ----).  The Chronicon Schirense names "comitisse Beatrix" as mother of "comites Chuonradus et Otto de Dachawe"[201].  According to Wegener, her father was Graf an der oberen Ampar, which later became the Grafschaft Dachau so the heiress who passed this property to her husband[202].  The necrology of Undensdorf records the death "III Id Feb" of "Beatrix coma"[203]

Graf Arnold & his wife had [three] children: 

1.         KONRAD [I] von Scheyern (-5 Dec, after 1130, bur Scheyern).  The Chronicon Schirense names "Arnoldus comes et filius eius Chounradus de Schyren" specifying "postea Dachawe castrum possederunt"[204]Graf von Dachau.  The necrology of Undensdorf records the death "Non Dec" of "Chunradus com"[205]m WILLIBIRG, daughter of --- (-11 Jan or 23 Sep ----).  The primary source which confirms her marriage has not yet been identified.  According to Wegener[206], she was probably Willibirg, daughter of Udalschalk Graf im Lurngau & his second wife Adelheid di Carniola, suggesting that the title Duke of Merano may have been transmitted through her mother to her son.  However, this assumes that the transmission of the title had some hereditary basis which, as can be seen from the case of other ducal appointments in Germany in the 11th and 12th centuries, is not inevitable.  The necrology of Undensdorf records the death "III Id Jan" of "Willibirch coma" and "IX Kal Oct" of "Willebirch coma"[207].  Graf Konrad [I] & his wife had three children: 

a)         KONRAD [II] von Dachau (-killed in battle Bergamo 18 Feb 1159, bur Scheyern).  The Chronicon Schirense names (in order) "Arnoldum et Chounradum" as the two sons of "Chounradus", specifying that Konrad held "Dalmatiæ ducatum" and was buried at Scheyern[208].  Vogt of St Andreas at Freising [1150].  Graf von Dachau 1152.  Duke of Merano 1153.  The necrology of Undensdorf records the death "XII Kal Mar" of "Chunradus dux de Dach"[209].  "Oudilhilt eius vidua" donated property to the monastery of Scheyern after the burial there of "Chounrado Duce de Dachawe"[210]m firstly (before 19 Mar 1140) as her third husband, ADELHEID van Limburg, widow firstly of FRIEDRICH "der Streitbare" Graf von Arnsberg and secondly of KUNO [Graf] von Horburg, daughter of HENDRIK I Graf van Limburg, Duke of Lower Lotharingia & his second wife Adelheid von Botenstein (-before 6 Feb before 1146, bur Bamberg St Michael).  The Annalista Saxo records the second of the two daughters of "Heinricus dux de Lintburh" and his wife Adelheid von Botenstein as the wife of "Fridericus comes de Arnesberge" but does not name her[211].  "Chuno de Horberch…cum uxore sua Adelheit" donated property to Osterhove monastery[212].  The primary source which confirms Adelheid, wife of Kuno, as the widow of Friedrich Graf von Arnsberg has not yet been identified.  The primary source which confirms her third marriage has not yet been identified.  m secondly MATHILDE von Falkenstein, daughter of RUDOLF von Falkenstein Graf an der Mangfall & his wife Gertrud von Weyarn.  "Oudilhilt eius vidua" donated property to the monastery of Scheyern after the burial there of "Chounrado Duce de Dachawe"[213].  "Machtildis Ducissa de Dachaue…cum filio suo Conrado" donated property to Undensdorf monastery, witnessed by "Arnoldus Comes de Dachau et Chunradus puer filius Conradi…"[214].  Graf Konrad [II] & his second wife had one child:

i)          KONRAD [III] von Dachau (-8 Oct 1182, bur Scheyern).  The Chronicon Schirense names "Chonradus" as son of "Chounradum [Dalmatiæ ducis]", specifying that he died without heirs and was buried at Scheyern "in sepulcro patris et attavi et proavi"[215].  "Machtildis Ducissa de Dachaue…cum filio suo Conrado" donated property to Undensdorf monastery, witnessed by "Arnoldus Comes de Dachau et Chunradus puer filius Conradi…"[216]Graf von Dachau, Duke of Merano.  The Annales Schaftlarienses record the death of "Chounradus dux de Dachau" in 1182[217].  The necrology of Undensdorf records the death "VIII Id Oct" of "Chunradus dux de Dachawe"[218]m UDELHILDE, daughter of ---.  The Chronicon Schirense names "Oudilhilde" as widow of "Chonradus"[219]

b)         ARNOLD von Dachau (-1 Nov, after 1185).  The Chronicon Schirense names (in order) "Arnoldum et Chounradum" as the two sons of "Chounradus"[220]Graf von Dachau 1156-1172.  "Machtildis Ducissa de Dachaue…cum filio suo Conrado" donated property to Undensdorf monastery, witnessed by "Arnoldus Comes de Dachau et Chunradus puer filius Conradi…"[221].  The necrology of Undensdorf records the death "Kal Nov" of "Arnoldus com"[222]

c)         WILLIBERG [Adelheid].  The primary source which confirms her parentage and marriage has not yet been identified.  m ALBRECHT III Graf von Tirol, son of ALBRECHT II Graf von Tirol & his wife Adelheid [von Andechs] ([1101]-24 Jan [1165]).

2.         OTTO von Scheyern (-1 Aug, after [1134/35]).  The Chronicon Schirense names "comites Chuonradus et Otto de Dachawe" as sons of "comitisse Beatrix"[223].  Graf von Valley 1124/25. 

          -        GRAFEN von VALLEY

3.         [BEATRIX .  The primary source which confirms her parentage and marriage has not yet been identified.  She is named as daughter of Graf Arnold in Europäische Stammtafeln[224] but not referred to as such in Wegener[225]m BERTHOLD Graf von Burgeck, son of of KUNO Graf von Lechsgemünd & his wife Mechtild von Horburg (-25 Oct before 1123).] 

 

 

 

 

Chapter 6.    GRAFEN von DIESSEN

 

 

 

The mention in the De Fundatoribus Monasterii Diessenses of the construction by "Razzo comes" in 954 of "cœnobium in honore Salvatoris omnium Werde" at the foot of his castle "Razenwerge" is the earliest reference to a member of the family of the Grafen von Diessen[226].  The De Fundatoribus records that the church, in which Razzo was buried, was consecrated by "sanctus Udalricus episcopus Augustensis" (chronologically consistent with the bishopric of Ulrich von Dillingen who died in 973) but that it was later destroyed "ab hostibus et invasoribus".  Count Razzo has not been identified and his connection with the later counts of Diessen is unknown.  "Razo comes" heads a long list of family members associated with the monastery of Diessen which is also included in the De Fundatoribus[227], which suggests a tradition of family relationship.  However, the accuracy of the document is uncertain, at least so far as its coverage of the earlier years is concerned, as the author records that it was compiled as late as 1478, although presumably based on earlier sources which have since disappeared.  The De Fundatoribus should not be dismissed entirely, however, as despite its late composition many details can be verified against other earlier sources as will be seen below. 

 

 

1.         RAZZO, son of --- (-19 Jun 954, bur Werde).  The De Fundatoribus Monasterii Diessenses names "Razzo comes" as founder in 954 of "cœnobium in honore Salvatoris omnium Werde" at the foot of his castle "Razenwerge", specifying that he was buried there[228].  "Razo comes" heads a long list of family members associated with the monastery of Diessen which is also included in the De Fundatoribus[229].  The necrology of Diessen records the death "Jun XIII Kal" of "Raze com qui cenobium in Werde construxit"[230]

 

 

The next recorded Graf von Diessen is Friedrich, who died before 1020.  The De Fundatoribus Monasterii Diessenses names "Fridericus comes dictus Roch" as successor of "Razzo comes"[231], without specifying any relationship between the two.  The chronological gap between the death of Razzo (recorded as occurring in 954) and the appearance of Friedrich (first recorded in 1003) suggests an intervening generation if the two were related.  The absence of the name Razzo, or any derivatives resembling the name, among the descendants of Friedrich suggests that there was no family connection between them.  According to Wegener, Graf Friedrich [I] was the son of Berthold von Reisensburg, son of Arnulf Pfalzgraf in Bavaria [Luitpoldinger][232].  He bases this on a "Berthold" witnessing several exchanges of property in the oberen Isar dated [990/99], and equating him with Berthold von Reisensburg.  Several points can be made about this theory.  Firstly, it seems surprising that such an illustrious connection with the Luitpoldinger Dukes of Bavaria would not have been mentioned by the various contemporary sources which relate the early history of the Grafen von Diessen.  Secondly, the estimated birth date of Berthold von Reisensburg is restricted to the limited period [929/31], bearing in mind the known dates of his own career and the likely birth date of his father.  His last known mention is dated 976.  Another burst of activity fourteen years after that date would be surprising when he would then have been in his sixties.  Thirdly, judging from the 976 entry, Berthold von Reisensburg appears to have fallen into disgrace with Emperor Otto II.  There is no record of his return to favour.  It is likely therefore that he died soon after and that his descendants (if any) fell into obscurity.  Fourthly, it is surprising that Berthold von Reisensburg would not have been described as comes even in entries relating to the period after his disgrace as he would presumably have continued to claim and use the title. 

 

 

1.         FRIEDRICH [I] "Roch" (-Jerusalem before 1020, bur Jerusalem).  The De Fundatoribus Monasterii Diessenses names "Fridericus comes dictus Roch" as successor of "Razzo comes"[233], without specifying any relationship between the two.  The same source records that Friedrich went to Jerusalem where he died and was buried.  "Henricus…rex" granted property "inter suos fluvios Ysara et Liubasa…in comitatu Friderici…in Hachingun in pago Sundergouue" to "comitis Adalberonis" by charter dated 30 Jun 1003[234].  Wegener refers to "Fridericus comes, Dietricus comes" witnessing a charter relating to land at Weiher, near Wasserburg, dated [1010/20][235]m KUNIGUNDE [Kunizza], daughter of [KONRAD I Duke of Swabia [Konradiner] & his wife Richlint ---] (-6 Mar after 1020, bur Diessen St Stefan).  The Genealogia Welforum refers to the four daughters of "Chuno comes [et] filia Ottonis Magni imperatoris", specifying that the fourth (unnamed) married "comite de Andhese"[236].  The Historia Welforum refers to the four daughters of "Couno comes" and "filia Ottonis magnis imperatoris…Richlint", specifying that they married "una Roudolfo isti [=Welforum], alia cuidam de Rinveldin, parenti Zaringiorum, tercia regie Rugiorum, quarta comiti de Diezon"[237].  As noted in the document SWABIA DUKES, these two sources are unreliable in their recording of the sons of Konrad I Duke of Swabia, so should not be assumed to be any more precise in recording his daughters.  The De Fundatoribus Monasterii Diessenses names "Kunizza comitissa" as wife of "Fridericus comes dictus Roch", but specifying that she was the sister of "sancta Richgardis que Ebersberg cenobium construxit" and that "Otto imperator magnus" was their "avus"[238].  On the other hand, the Chronico Eberspergense names "Rihcardem sororem Marhwardi presidis de Carinthia"[239].  No other indication has been found that Richardis may have been the sister of Kunigunde.  The De Fundatoribus records that Kunizza founded "monasterium sancti Stephani" in 1020 after the death of her husband.  The necrology of Diessen records the death "Mar Non" of "Chuniza com, sepulta in media basilica s Stephani, uxor Friderici comes Rochen"[240]

 

2.         DIETRICH (-[1010/20] or after).  Wegener refers to "comes Dietricus" named in a charter dated [1003/12][241].  He also refers to a donation to Pfans/Pfons (near Innsbruck) by "Dietricus comes" dated [1015][242].  Wegener refers to "Fridericus comes, Dietricus comes" witnessing a charter relating to land at Weiher, near Wasserburg, dated [1010/20], suggesting that the two may have been brothers[243]

 

 

The following Graf Friedrich [II] is recorded in 1025 (as the father of Berthold [I]), in 1027 (twice, once as father of Otto [I]), and in 1030.  He was therefore presumably a different person from Graf Friedrich [I], who is recorded as having died in Jerusalem before 1020.  It is not known how the two Grafen Friedrich may have been related, if at all.  However, the continuity of references to Diessen suggests a close connection, maybe father and son.  Wegener conflates Graf Friedrich [I] and Graf Friedrich [II] as he appears to ignore the reference to the death of the former before 1020[244].  The De Fundatoribus Monasterii Diessenses does not name a second Graf Friedrich, although this is not surprising considering that it appears to ignore the generations between Graf Friedrich [I] and Otto Graf von Wolfratshausen[245].  Generally, the reconstruction of the family of the Grafen von Diessen is hindered rather than helped by the speculative connections suggested by Wegener.  An attempt has been made in the following passages to explain these speculations and highlight any contradictions with primary sources which he does not cite.  Unfortunately, it appears that many of these misleading speculations have found their way into the tables in Europäische Stammtafeln in which they appear as definite.  In the case of this family, therefore, it is more important than ever to use the "back to basics" approach and start again from scratch in compiling information from primary sources.  Hopefully, the results are relatively accurate but it is admitted that it is particularly challenging to achieve a definitive reconstruction of this family and no doubt further improvements are possible. 

 

 

1.         FRIEDRICH [II] (-1030 or after).  "Chonradus…Romanorum imperator augustus" donated property "forestum Hesilinestuda…iuxta villam Garza ubi ille rivus Inum fluvium influit…usque ad Pikkilinstein in comitatu Friderici" to the church of Salzburg by charter dated 7 Jul 1027[246].  Wegener quotes a reference to Graf Friedrich and his son Friedrich dated [1030][247]m ---.  The name of Friedrich's wife is not known.  Graf Friedrich [II] & his wife had [five] children: 

a)         BERTHOLD [I] (-after 16 May 1060).  "Chunigundæ imperatricis augustæ" donated property to the church of Freising by charter dated 1025, witnessed by "…Perahtolt filius Friderici comitis…"[248].   Wegener quotes a reference to "comes Perhtoldus de Diezan" dated [1050][249]Graf von Diessen.  Wegener quotes a reference to "Otto son of Graf Perhtold" dated 16 May 1060[250]m ---.  The name and origin of the wife of Berthold [I] is not known.  Wegener suggests that she was --- von Hohenwart, daughter of Konrad [von Hohenwart] & his wife ---, to explain the entry of the name Konrad into the family of the Grafen von Wolfratshausen and because property held by the latter previously belonged to the Ratpotonen family of Hohenwart[251].  However, this seems chronologically improbable.  Otto Graf von Wolfratshausen, son of Graf Berthold [I], is named between the years 1060 and 1117.  It therefore seems unlikely that he was born before 1040 at the earliest.  In contrast, any daughter of Konrad von Hohenwart must have been born before [1005], when Konrad is recorded as deceased.  Graf Berthold [I] & his wife had [three] children: 

i)          OTTO [II] von Diessen (-24 Apr ----, bur [Diessen] St Stephan).  Wegener quotes a reference to "Otto son of Graf Perhtold" dated 16 May 1060[252].  Graf von Wolfratshausen und Diessen. 

-         GRAFEN von WOLFRATSHAUSEN

ii)         DIEPOLD (-19 Feb ----, bur [Diessen] St Stephan).  The De Fundatoribus Monasterii Diessenses records the death "XI Kal Mar" of "Diupoldus comes frater Ottonis comitis prescripti", in the following paragraph recording that "Otto comes de Wolfraczhausen maior domus", was buried "in…Sancti Stephani…iuxta fratrem suum"[253]

iii)        [daughter .  Wegener suggests that Graf Hermann married twice, his first wife being the daughter of Berthold [I] Graf von Diessen in order to explain the transmission of the name Berthold to his second son[254].  Unfortunately, Wegener reduces the effect of his own argument when on the next page he highlights the absence of proof that Berthold was in fact the son of Graf Hermann [I][255]m [as his first wife,] HERMANN [I] Graf von Poigen, son of [GEBHARD [I] Graf von Sulzbach & his first wife ---] .] 

b)         OTTO [I] von Diessen (-17 Jan [1057/62 or after]).  Wegener quotes a reference to "Otto filius Friderici" dated [1027][256]m ---.  The name of Otto's wife is not known.  Graf Otto [I] & his wife had [two] children:

i)          [BERTHA .  Wegener quotes the witness list of the marriage treaty of Adalbert Vizedom von Freising and Bertha, dated [1070], which lists in order "Heinrih filius Marchwardi Carinthiensis comitis, Arnolt comes de Diezan, Meginhart comes de Giltichingen, Otto comes de Daningan, Otto comes de Skyryn, Ernust comes"[257] and assesses that the names indicate that Bertha must have been a member of the family of the Grafen von Diessen.  He speculates that Otto [I] must have been her father as she named her second son Otto[258]m ([1070]) ADALBERT Vizedom von Freising, son of [HARTWIG [II] Graf an der unteren Ampar & his wife Avisa ---] (-[Aug 1096]).] 

ii)         [BEATRIX von Diessen (-24 Feb ----).  Having established the paternity of Bertha, wife of Adalbert Vizedom von Freising (see above), Wegener assumes that Beatrix must have been Bertha's sister as her husband was the first witness to Bertha's [1070] marriage contract[259].  The necrology of St Lambert records the death "VI Kal Mar" of "Beatrix fundatrix h l"[260]m ([1070]) as his first wife, HEINRICH II Duke of Carinthia, son of MARKWARD IV Graf von der Kärtner Mark [Eppenstein] & his wife Liutbirg --- [Wilhelme] (-4 Dec 1122).] 

c)         FRIEDRICH [III] (-30 Jun 1075, bur Seeon).  Wegener quotes a reference to Graf Friedrich and his son Friedrich dated [1030][261]

-        see below

d)         [CHRISTIANA .  Wegener suggests that the wife of Graf Friedrich was the daughter of Graf Friedrich to explain the transfer of Wehrbach, which belonged to Preising, to Friedrich von Eppenstein[262] but presumably there are other possible ways in which the transfer of ownership could have been effected.  If the hypothesis is correct, the chronology suggests that her father must have been Friedrich [II] rather than Friedrich [I] (the two being conflated by Wegener as referred to above).  "Frideric comes" donated property for the soul of "uxorisque eius Christiane" and for "aliorumque parentum suorum…Ebrohart, Frideric, Ernost, Cuono, Adalpero, Hartwich, Hemma, Rickart, Hadamuot", undated[263]m FRIEDRICH Graf [an der Isar und Vils], son of EBERHARD [Ezzo] Graf an der Isar und Vils [Eppenstein] & his wife Richgard [Sieghardinger] (-after [1065]).]  

e)         [PILIHILD .  Wegener suggests that the wife of Graf Sieghard was the daughter of Graf Friedrich, to explain the arrival of this name in the Sieghardinger family.  If the hypothesis is correct, the chronology suggests that her father must have been Friedrich [II] rather than Friedrich [I] (the two being conflated by Wegener as referred to above).  "Heinricus…Romanorum imperator augustus" donated property "in comitatu Otacchari situm, ipso vero Otaccharo et Pilihilda vidua Sizonis comitis duobusque filiis eius Sigehardo et Friderico…" to the church of Salzburg by charter dated 9 Apr 1048[264].  Wegener refers to a donation by Graf Friedrich, with the consent of his mother Pilihild, his wife Mathild and his brother Syrus, to Michaelbeuren dated [1060][265].  The necrology of Salzburg St Rudpert records the death "X Kal Nov" of "Pilhilt com"[266]m SIEGHARD [VII] or [VIII] Graf im Chiemgau, son of [Graf SIEGHARD [VI] & his first wife Hildburg --- OR son of ENGELBERT [III] Graf im Pongau [Sieghardinger] & his wife Adela ---] (-killed in battle 5 Jul 1044).] 

2.         [daughter .  Wegener suggests that the wife of Graf Ratpoto was the sister of Graf Friedrich, the date of the latter's death suggesting that this must have been Friedrich [II] rather than Friedrich [I] (the two being conflated by Wegener as referred to above), although he cites no primary source to support his position[267].  According to Europäische Stammtafeln[268], the wife of Graf Ratpoto was the daughter of Luitpold Markgraf der Bayerischen Ostmark [Babenberg], but the primary source which confirms this has not yet been identified.  m RATPOTO [III] Graf von Diessen, son of RATPOTO [II] Graf im oberen Traungau & his wife --- (-18 Jun [1050]).]   

 

 

The reconstruction of the following family sub-group is based mainly on the first part of the De Fundatoribus Monasterii Diessenses which consists of a long list of names of persons in the family of the Grafen von Diessen and Grafen von Andechs but specifies no relationships[269].  It is not known how these individuals were related to the earlier Grafen von Diessen shown above but a close connection is indicated by the common use of many names between the two family groups.  Although the De Fundatoribus was written in 1478, as noted in the introduction to this chapter, this list gives the appearance of having been copied verbatim from an unknown earlier source.  The reconstruction depends on a careful analysis of the placing of the names in the list relative one to the other.  Some reassurance about the reliability of this technique is gained from applying it to the names in the sub-group relating to the Grafen von Wolfratshausen, about whom corroborative information is available from other sources.  No indication has been found about how the Diessen/Andechs sub-group is related to the Diessen/Wolfratshausen sub-group, although a close connection is likely considering how frequently the two sub-groups are mentioned together in different sources.  The names in the relevant part of the Diessen/Andechs sub-group are as follows: "…Chuonradus canonicus, Fridericus comes, Tuota canonica, Arnoldus comes, Gisila cometissa, Otto comes, Mathildis abbatissa de Oetilinstetin, Eufemia abbatissa de Altenmunster, Gisila cometissa de Berge, Berhtoldus marchio, Hadewich cometissa, Poppo summus prepositus Babenberch, Mathildis marchionissa de Hohenburch, Kunigundis comitissa de Eberstein, Sophia comitissa de Hennenberch, Berhtoldus dux et marchio, Agnes ducissa…".   It appears that these names fall into further sub-sub-groups, suggested by information available from other sources and also because clerical names appear to take precedence over lay persons in the list.  On this basis, the following sub-sub-groups have been identified: 

-           three brothers "…Chuonradus canonicus, Fridericus comes… Arnoldus comes",  "Tuota canonica" being the daughter of "Fridericus comes". 

-           "Gisila comitissa" wife of "Arnoldus comes". 

-           "Otto comes, Mathildis abbatissa de Oetilinstetin, Eufemia abbatissa de Altenmunster, Gisila cometissa de Berge, Berhtoldus marchio" brothers and sisters, the names of their parents being omitted from the list. 

-           "Hadewich cometissa" wife of "Berhtoldus marchio" and their children "Poppo summus prepositus Babenberch, Mathildis marchionissa de Hohenburch, Kunigundis comitissa de Eberstein, Sophia comitissa de Hennenberch, Berhtoldus dux et marchio…". 

From a separate source, it is known that "Chuonradus canonicus" was patruus of Berthold Graf von Andechs, the missing father of the third group.  That Berthold was the son of Arnold is confirmed by the necrology of Diessen. 

 

 

FRIEDRICH [III], son of FRIEDRICH [II] Graf & his wife --- (-30 Jun 1075, bur Seeon).  Wegener quotes a reference to Graf Friedrich and his son Friedrich dated [1030][270].  Wegener identifies Friedrich with Friedrich Domvogt von Regensburg named in [1035][271].  "Heinricus…Romanorum imperator augustus" granted property "in loco Lanthartesdorf in comitatu Friderici comitis" to Kloster Ebersberg by charter dated 13 Mar 1055[272].  "Heinricus…Romanorum imperator augustus" granted property "cum ipsis enim aliquando Otto marchio precarium fecit et dedit…in loco Leian inter Montana in comitatu Popponis et in loco Ufchirchin in comitatu Friderici et in loco Ebarhusen in comitatu Burchardi" to Freising Cathedral by charter dated 10 Dec 1055[273]Graf von Diessen.  Graf von Andechs.  The necrology of Seeon records the death "II Kal Jul 1075" of "Fridricus com de Andex et hic iacet"[274].  It is possible that Graf Friedrich was the father of Graf Arnold shown below.  A close connection is suggested by the entry in the same necrology "X Kal Feb" for "Fridericus com", who was probably the same person as the Graf Friedrich who is recorded in the necrology of Diessen as the uncle of Berthold Graf von Andechs, and who would have been the son of this Graf Friedrich. 

[m ---.  Wegener speculates that Graf Friedrich [III] married firstly Hadamut, and that she was Hadamut von Eppenstein, daughter of Eberhard [Ezzo] von Eppenstein & his wife ---, as she is named in the donation to St Castulus dated [1060] by her supposed brother Friedrich von Eppenstein among his relatives "Ebrohart, Frideric, Ernost, Cuono, Adalpero, Hartwich, Hemma, Rickart, Hadamuot"[275], but the speculation is tenuous.  If it is correct, it is unclear why Graf Friedrich's sister, who would have been his closest relative, was named last in the list in this source.  However, the objections to this first marriage are more basic.  In another part of his work Wegener repeats the assertion[276], but cites no supporting source that Graf Friedrich was married firstly or that his first wife was called Hadamut.  The suspicion is that Wegener based his postulation on the need for a first marriage to identify the mother of Haziga, wife of Hermann von Kastl and subsequently of Otto von Scheyern, whom he suggests was the daughter of Graf Friedrich [III] by this supposed first marriage.  However, his argument for the affiliation of Haziga is itself flawed.  He bases it on stating that the Chronicon Schirense says that Sieghard Patriarch of Aquileja was the son of Haziga's aunt, Patriarch Sieghard being the son of Sieghard Graf im Chiemgau and his wife Pilihild, whom Wegener suggests was the sister of Graf Friedrich [III] (see above).  However, his reading of the Chronicon Schirense is incorrect.  The Chronicon in fact names "Heinricus patriarcha Aquileiensis et supradictus episcopus Polensis [=Ellenhardo] duo fratres" as sons of "matertere ipsius Hazige"[277], referring therefore to the patriarch who succeeded Patriarch Sieghard.  It is probably best to ignore this alleged first marriage of Graf Friedrich.] 

m [firstly] [IRMGARD], daughter of ARNOLD Graf [von Gilching] & his second wife Irmgard ---.  The primary source which confirms her parentage and marriage has not yet been identified. 

[m [secondly] [TUTA] von Regensburg, daughter of HARTWIG [I] Domvogt von Regensburg & his wife ---.  Wegener bases his speculation about this second marriage of Graf Friedrich [III] on his co-identification of Friedrich, brother of Arnold Graf von Diessen, with Friedrich [I] Domvogt von Regensburg.  However, this co-identity appears to be disproved by the necrology of Diessen which records the death "IX Kal Feb" of "Fridericus com sepultus ad S Blasium in Nigri Silva, patruus Berhtoldi fundatoris nostri"[278], who is presumably to be identified as Friedrich who was the brother of Graf Arnold, as shown below.  On the other hand it is interesting to note that both of these Grafen Friedrich are recorded as having a daughter named Tuta, a factor which is not highlighted by Wegener.  It is impossible to tell whether this is coincidence or whether it is an indication that Wegener's theory is after all correct.] 

Graf Friedrich [III] & his [first] wife had [three] children: 

1.         [UTA (-9 Feb ----).  Wegener speculates that the wife of Kuno von Rott was the daughter of Graf Friedrich [III] by his first wife, but his speculation is tenuous[279].  The Vita Sancti Marini et Anniani names "Chonradus alias Chuno comes palatinus" as founder of the monastery of Rott immediately followed by "Werta fundatrix"[280], implying that the latter was Kuno's wife.  The necrology of Seeon records the death "V Id Feb" of "Uta"[281], although it is not certain that this refers to the wife of Kuno.  m KUNO von Rott, son of POPPO [II] von Rott & his wife --- im Ramgau (-27 Mar [1086]).] 

2.         [ARNOLD von Diessen (-8 Feb after 1091, bur Atile).  The primary source which confirms his parentage has not yet been identified.  Wegener highlights the absence of proof that Arnold was the son of Graf Friedrich [III], apart from the continuity in the holding of the county of Diessen[282].  Graf von Diessen 1070/91.  Hallgraf 1063/1080.] 

-        see below

3.         [MEGINHARD (-after [1070]).  Wegener cites a donation by Ellenhart Bishop of Brixen to Freising dated 1070 witnessed first by "Megenhart comes", and the marriage contract of Adalbert Vizedom von Freising and Bertha (whom he speculates elsewhere was the daughter of Otto [I] von Diessen, see above) dated [1070] witnessed by "Heinrih filius Marchwardi Carinthiensis comitis, Arnolt comes de Diezan, Meginhart comes de Giltichingen, Otto comes de Daningan, Otto comes de Skyrun, Ernust comes"[283].  Wegener also uses the latter witness list as the basis for suggesting that Bertha was the daughter of Otto [I] von Diessen (see above).  His argument is therefore circular.] 

 

 

The sources indicate that the following were brothers and sisters, as shown below.  If, as Wegener speculates, Arnold Graf von Diessen was the son of Graf Friedrich [III], they were all of course his children but this link is not made in any of the sources consulted. 

1.         ARNOLD von Diessen, son of [FRIEDRICH [III] Graf von Diessen & his [first] wife [Irmgard] von [Gilching] (-8 Feb after 1091, bur Atile).  Arnold being the brother of Konrad and Friedrich is deduced from the list of names in the De Fundatoribus referred to above.  Graf von Diessen 1070/91.  Hallgraf 1063/1080.  The necrology of Diessen records the death "Feb VI Id" of "Arnoldus com sepultus Atile pater comitis Bertoldi fundatoris nostri"[284]m [as her second husband,] GISELA, [widow of ---], daughter of --- (-22 Feb ----).  The De Fundatoribus Monasterii Diessenses names "Gisila cometissa" immediately after "Arnoldus comes" in a long list of names linked with this family, which suggests that she was Arnold's wife although no relationship is specified[285].  The relationship is confirmed by the necrology of Diessen recording the death "Mar VIII Kal" of "Gisila com uxor comitis Arnoldi"[286].  Wegener suggests that Gisela was the wife of Graf Berthold, presumably Graf Berthold [II] shown below, and that the couple were the parents of Graf Berthold [III].  He explains the reference to Arnold in the necrology as an error on the part of the 13th century compiler.  This explanation appears to be rather a desperate attempt to make the facts fit the author's theory, which in any case apparently ignores the evidence from other sources which points to Gisela being Arnold's wife and Arnold, not Berthold [II], being Berthold [III]'s father.  According to Europäische Stammtafeln[287], Arnold's wife Gisela was Gisela von Schweinfurt, daughter of Otto Markgraf von Schweinfurt Duke of Swabia & his wife Irmgard [Aemilia/Immula] di Susa, who married secondly as his first wife, Wichmann Graf von Seeburg.  Wegener also identifies Gisela as the daughter of Markgraf Otto[288], citing in support the Kastler Reimchronik of [1323/24] according to which Sophie, daughter of "Graf Otto", married a Graf von Andechs[289].  As this is the only reference to Otto Markgraf von Schweinfurt having a daughter named Sophie, Wegener identifies her with Gisela, in another apparent attempt to make the facts fit his theory.  Presumably the compiler of Europäische Stammtafeln adopted the same solution without too much enquiry into the background.  The Annalista Saxo, however, names Gisela as one of the five daughters of Otto von Schweinfurt and assigns "Wigmanno comiti de Seburch" as her only husband[290].  Gisela's being described as "uxor comitis Arnoldi" in the Diessen necrology suggests that she predeceased Arnold, or at least that Arnold had been her only husband.  In addition, if she had left Bavaria for Saxony to marry a second time it is less likely that her death would have been recorded at Diessen.  There is also a strong chronological argument against any supposed first marriage of Gisela von Schweinfurt.  Arnold Graf von Diessen died after 1091.  This raised the unlikely prospect that Wichmann Graf von Seeberg married, as his first wife, a widow probably in her late 30s/early 40s with limited prospects of further child-bearing.  The case against Graf Berthold [II] as her first husband is conclusive as Graf Berthold was still alive in [1100] (see below) whereas Graf Wichmann married his second wife (presumably after the death of Gisela) in [1096].  In conclusion, therefore, it appears appropriate to dismiss definitively the supposed Schweinfurt origin of the wife of Graf Arnold.  There is, on the other hand, another possibility which deserves consideration.  This is that Graf Arnold was in fact Gisela's second husband.  Europäische Stammtafeln[291] shows five children Gebhard, Friedrich Rocho, Otto, Dietrich and Adelheid as possible children of Graf Arnold (see GRAFEN von WASSERBURG).  The necrology of Diessen reveals that at least three of them, Gebhard, Otto and Dietrich, were brothers of "Berhtoldi comitis fundatoris nostri".  The same source explicitly states that Berthold was the son of Graf Arnold.  The difficulty lies with the chronology.  As is shown under the Grafen von Andechs, it is likely that Berthold was born towards the end of his father's life, assuming that there was not a large difference of age between Berthold and his first wife, and who is therefore unlikely to have been born much before [1095/98].  On the other hand, the dates of death of three of the other possible children indicate that they are unlikely to have been born after the early 1070s.  If all were full brothers, it is puzzling why Berthold, a younger brother, should have inherited the most important of their father's counties.  One possible explanation is that the other children were Graf Berthold's uterine brothers, born from an earlier marriage of their mother.  This could also explain the sudden appearance of the name "Gebhard" into the family, unused before this time.  It would also explain why the necrology of Diessen names Graf Berthold's father while recording that Gebhard and Dietrich were "brothers of Berthold" without naming their father.  Graf Arnold & his wife had [two] children: 

a)         BERTHOLD [III] (-27 Jun 1151, bur Diessen).  The parentage of Berthold Graf von Andechs is deduced from the list of names in the De Fundatoribus referred to above and because Konrad is described as his patruus (see below).  It is confirmed by the necrology of Diessen recording the death "Feb VI Id" of "Arnoldus com sepultus Atile pater comitis Bertoldi fundatoris nostri"[292].  On the other hand, the necrology of Diessen records the death "Feb XVI Kal" of "Irmilgardis, mater domini Perchtoldi"[293], although it is not certain to which Berthold this refers.  von Andechs 1106/1113.  Graf von Diessen [1125].  Graf von Plassenberg und von Stein 1130.

b)         [ADELHEID (-[1163]).  Wegener suggests that the wife of Graf Albrecht II was the daughter of Graf Berthold [II] (although as he confuses Graf Berthold with Graf Arnold, it is assumed that the latter is indicated)[294], but this would appear to be only one of many possibilities.  According to Wegener, she married secondly Arnold Graf von Mareit und Greifenstein but he cites no source in support of this.  m ALBRECHT II Graf [von Tirol], son of ALBRECHT I Graf [von Tirol] & his wife Bertha --- ([1055]-[1110/25]).]

3.         BERTHOLD [II] (-[1100] or after).  Wegener cites a reference to "Chounradus clericus de Jaubisperc germanus Perhtoldi comitis de Andehse senioris" dated [1095][296], and a reference to "Perhtolt de Andehse, Liupolt de Dieze" dated [1100][297].  [m SOPHIE von Schweinfurt, daughter of OTTO Markgraf von Schweinfurt Duke of Swabia & his wife Irmgard [Aemilia/Immula] di Susa.  Wegener refers to the Kastler Reimchronik of [1323/24] according to which Sophie, daughter of Graf Otto, married a Graf von Andechs[298].  He uses this as part of the justification for his theory concerning the Schweinfurt origin of Gisela, whom he identifies as the wife of Graf Berthold [III].  The difficulties with this co-identification have been fully explored above.  However, the reference in the Kastler Reimchronik still needs to be explained.  The author has insufficient knowledge about the Reimchronik to be able to comment on its reliability as a source.  However, if the reference is correct, a convenient explanation would be that Sophie was the wife of Berthold [II].] 

4.         KONRAD (-16 May ----, bur Diessen).  "Chuonradus clericus de Iaubesperc germanus Perhtoldi Comitis de Andehse senioris" donated property to Tegernsee monastery, dated to before 1102[299].   "Perhtoldus Comes et eius patruus Chonradus de Iagobesberg" donated a serf to Weihenstefan monastery, dated to [1097/1114][300].  The De Fundatoribus Monasterii Diessenses records the death "XVII Kal Iun" of "Cunradus…patruus comitis Bertholdi de Andichs" specifying that he was "possessor huius loci" and buried "in capitulo"[301].  Monk at Jakobsberg 1096/1114. 

5.         FRIEDRICH (-24 Jan ----, bur St Blasium in Nigri Silva).  Friedrich being the brother of Konrad and Arnold is deduced from the list of names in the De Fundatoribus referred to above.  It is confirmed by the necrology of Diessen recording the death "IX Kal Feb" of "Fridericus com sepultus ad S Blasium in Nigri Silva, patruus Berhtoldi fundatoris nostri"[302].  The necrology of Seeon records the death "X Kal Feb" of "Fridericus com"[303], although it is not certain that this refers to the same individual.  The Liber Anniversariorum of Einsiedeln records the death in Jan of "com Fridericus de Bavaria"[304], which may refer to the same Graf Friedrich.  m ---.  The name of Friedrich's wife is not known.  Graf Friedrich & his wife had one child:

a)         TOTA .  "Tuota canonica" being the daughter of Friedrich is deduced from the list of names in the De Fundatoribus referred to above. 

 

 

 

 

Chapter 7.    GRAFEN von EBERSBERG

 

 

This is the Bavarian family often referred to, for convenience, as the "Sieghardinger" after the name of their first ancestor which was used repeatedly in succeeding generations.  The senior branch of the family was closely associated with Ebersberg.  The younger branch established themselves as Grafen im Chiemgau, later Grafen von Tengling, Burghausen und Schala, and Peilstein.  The early history of the Grafen von Ebersberg is recorded in the Chronico Eberspergensi[305], a collection of manuscripts collated at Ebersberg monastery in the mid-13th century but which probably dates from much earlier judging from the detail of the information which it contains.  The last event recorded probably dates to the 1030s.  This means that this is one of the few German families for which any details have survived for the crucial 10th/11th century period for which information is usually so sparse.  The Chronico specifies that the Grafen von Ebersberg were "de genere" of Karloman King of the East Franks [Carolingian].  This relationship with the later Carolingians appears corroborated by Graf Sieghard (d. 906) being described as "propinquo nostro" by Emperor Arnulf (see below) in the charter under which the emperor granted him a chapel at Ebersberg.  This document also represents the first proven connection between the family and the location of Ebersberg.  The charter dated 21 Jul 946 under which "Otto…rex" transferred property "in pago Chiemihgovue in comitatu Sigihardi" to "comiti nostro Eberhart…talem proprietatem qualem antecessor noster…Arnolfus rex avo illius Sigihardo comiti" also provides a cryptic reference to the Carolingian relationship, although it is not possible to see how "avus" could be correct[306].  The first recorded possessor of the castle of Ebersberg was Graf Ratold (d. 919), elder grandson of the first known Graf Sieghard, who is also recorded as having borne the title "Markgraf".  This appears to have been an isolated example of the grant of this title to members of the family as none of his descendants is recorded as Markgraf. 

 

 

SIEGHARD [I], son of --- (-861 or after).  A charter dated 5 Jan 848 records an exchange of property "in pago Chochinguue et in Mulehgouue" between Hatto Abbot of Fulda and "Sigehardus comes", subscribed by "Gerharti comitis, Sigifridi comitis"[307].  Ludwig II "der Deutsche" King of the East Franks donated property which "comes Sigihardus comes in villa Heitungesfelden in beneficium nobis habuit" to Kloster Fulda by charter dated 12 Feb [849?][308].  The geographical distance of Fulda from Kraichgau suggests that these two documents may not refer to the same person as the other diplomas cited below.  Graf im Kraichgau 858:  King Ludwig II "der Deutsche" granted property "in pago Lobodengouue in comitatu Werinherii in villa…Walestat" to Tuto in exchange for property "in comitatu Sighardi in pago…Creichgouue in villa Vhratesheim" by charter dated 7 Dec 858[309].  An agreement between Charles II "le Chauve" King of the West Franks and his brother King Ludwig II dated Jun 860 names "nobilis ac fidelibus laicis…Chuonradus, Evrardus, Adalardus, Arnustus, Warnarius, Liutfridus, Hruodolfus, Erkingarius, Gislebertus, Ratbodus, Arnulfus, Hugo, item Chuonradus, Liutharius, Berengarius, Matfridus, Boso, Sigeri, Hartmannus, Liuthardus, Richuinus, Wigricus, Hunfridus, Bernoldus, Hatto, Adalbertus, Burchardus, Christianus, Leutulfus, Hessi, Herimannus, item Hruodulfus, Sigehardus"[310]

m [---, sister of LIUTSWINDIS, daughter of ---.  This possible marriage is shown to explain why Sieghard's son, Sieghard, is referred to consistently in primary sources as consanguineus of Emperor Arnulf I, on the basis that the most likely connection is through the family of the emperor's mother Liutswindis.] 

Graf Sieghard & his wife had [one] child: 

1.         [SIEGHARD [II] (-10 Oct 906, bur Freising).  The primary source which confirms his parentage has not yet been identified, although his name suggests that he was the son of Siegfried [I].  The Chronico Eberspergense names "Sighardus" specifying that he was "consanguineus" of "Arnolfus cæsar filius Karolomanni"[311].  The Chronico Eberspergensi Posteriore names "comes Sighardus" in Bavaria specifying that he was "de genere regum [Karlomanni filii Ludwici Regis]"[312].  "Arnolfus…rex" gave a chapel at Ebersberg to "comes noster…Sigihart" by charter dated 1 Jan 888[313].  "Arnolfus…imperator augustus" gave land in "comitatu Regingarii…Chaganinga" to "comiti et propinquo nostro…Sigihardo" by charter dated 8 Jul 896[314].  Emperor Arnulf granted property "in pago…Duria…in comitatu Arnolfi in loco ad Rotu quos Adalgoz…tenuit" to "comiti et…propinquo nostro…Sigihart" on the request of "comite…Adalhardo" by charter dated 18 Oct 898[315].  "Hludowicus…rex" granted property to the church of Freising by charter dated 30 Nov 903 in which among "fidelium nostrum" was listed "Liutboldi illustris comitis et cari propinqui nostri, Sigihardi etiam"[316], presumably indicating that Sieghard was also "propinquus" of King Ludwig which is consistent with references in other sources listed above.  The Chronico Eberspergensi Posteriore record the death "906 sequenti die post Dyonisii martyris" of "Sighardus comes" and his burial at Freising[317].  The necrology of Ebersberg records the death "VI Id Oct" of "Sigihardus com pater Ratoldi"[318]m GOTINA, daughter of --- (-20 Dec 906, bur Freising).  According to Europäische Stammtafeln[319], Gotina was the possible daughter of Rabold Graf an der Amper.  Graf Rabold has not been identified and the reasoning behind this speculative origin is not known.  It may be based on the supposed onomastic connection between "Rabold" and "Ratold", the name first used in the Ebersberg family for Gotina's older son, both possibly derived from "Ratbold".  The Chronico Eberspergensi Posteriore names "Gottina" as wife of "Sighardus comes", specifying that she died a few days after her husband "in vigilia sancti Thome apostolic" and was buried with her husband[320].  The necrology of Ebersberg records the death "XIII Kal Dec" of "Cotini com uxor Sigihardi"[321].  Graf Sieghard [II] & his wife had two children:

2.         EBERHARD (-Sep or 16 Nov [949], bur Freising).  The Chronico Eberspergensi Posteriore names "Eberhardum et Adalperonen" as the two sons of "Ratoldus [Sighardi filius]" & his wife[328].  "Otto…rex" transferred property "in pago Chiemihgovue in comitatu Sigihardi" to "comiti nostro Eberhart…talem proprietatem qualem antecessor noster…Arnolfus rex avo illius Sigihardo comiti"[329].  "Otto…rex" transferred property "in villa Niuchinga in pago Hehsinga in comitatu Eberhardi comitis" to St Emmeram, Regensburg by charter dated 16 Jul 950 which also refers to property "in villa Helphendorph sitam in Friero marca in comitatu Biligrimi comitis et Sigehardi in Sneideseo et Kadalhoi Ysinachgouue"[330], although this casts doubt on the accuracy of the year of Eberhard's death recorded in the following source.  The Chronico Eberspergensi Posteriore records the death in Sep 949 of "Eberhardum" and his burial in "ecclesia Frisingensi", specifying that he was unmarried[331].  The necrology of Ebersberg records the death "XVI Kal Dec" of "Eberhardus com filius Ratoldi et Willipirc soror eius"[332].  The necrology of Freising Cathedral records the death "XVI Kal Dec" of "Eparhart com"[333]

Chapter 10.  GRAFEN von FORMBACH

 

 

A.      GRAFEN im TRAUNGAU

 

 

Formbach, now Vornbach, is in eastern Bavaria on the Austrian border just north of the Austrian town of Schärding and about 10 km south of Passau. 

 

The relationships between the early Grafen im Traungau are mostly uncertain, as shown below.  Wegener attempts a reconstruction[431].  Another possible outline, different in the details, is shown in Europäische Stammtafeln[432].  The primary sources so far consulted contain little definite information to support either reconstruction.  The continuity in the references to Traungau provides some assurance that all the individuals were related.  It is also a reasonably safe assumption that the number of different individuals with the same names has been correctly identified, although this is not completely certain.  However, there could be many permutations in the precise relationships, speculation about which appears fruitless.

3.         ARNOLD [I] (-1 Mar [1020]).  According to Wegener, Graf Arnold [I], ancestor of the Grafen von Wels und Lambach, was the younger son of Graf Ulrich [III] (of the family who later became Grafen von Formbach), basing this on his name being inherited from the Luitpoldinger family of his supposed mother[454].  If this is correct, the names "Arnold" and "Arnulf" must be interchangeable, but this appears disputable.  According to Europäische Stammtafeln, Arnold was the possible son of Graf Meginhard [III][455], possibly a relative of Graf Ulrich [III].  There appears too much uncertainty surrounding both these theories to decide if one is more attractive than the other.  No hint is provided by the geographical location of the properties of Arnold's family.  The towns of Lambach and Wels are located to the south-west of Linz in Upper Austria, while the properties of the family of Grafen von Formbach were in Bavaria, which suggests that a connection is unlikely.  In addition, none of the typically Formbach names (for example Ulrich, Meginhard, Thiemo) appear among the descendants of Arnold [I].  The Historia Cremifanensis names "comites de Welsa et de Lembach…Arnoldum et Wilhelmum" which suggests an entirely different origin through the Wilhelme family (see the document CARINTHIA)[456].  Wegener refers to an alliance between Christian Bishop of Passau and Graf Arnold over a disputed wood, dated [991/1012][457].  Graf im Rotagau.  The necrology of Lambach records the death "Kal Mar" of "Arnolfus com avus ep Alberonis"[458]

THIEMO [I] [Dietmar], son of Graf BERTHOLD & his wife --- (-7 Mar [1050]).  Wegener refers to Graf Berthold, son of Graf Ulrich, transferring his bondsman Rihgart on his deathbed into the hands of his son Graf Thiemo by charter dated [1000/05][459].  According to the 14th century Genealogia comitum Neuburgensium sive Formbacensium, "Udalricus senex comes genuit sex filios Arnoldum, Piligrimum, Brunonem, Tyemonem, Chounradum clericum Salzburgensem prepositum, Meginhardum"[460], but this appears to be inaccurate.  The Vita Wirntonis names "Eckebertus comes, avo suo Thymone"[461].  "Heinricus…rex" restored property "villam Flinsbach dictam in pago Sueinihgouui sitam et in comitatu Tiemonis comitis" to Kloster Niederaltach by charter dated 5 Nov 1005[462].  Graf im Schweinachgau.  "Heinricus…rex" granted market and customs rights at "villa Helmgerisperk…in comitatu Thiemonis" to Kloster Niederaltach by charter dated 7 Jun 1009[463].  Graf in Reichenhall.  Graf im Salzburggau 1007.  "Chunigundæ imperatricis augustæ" donated property to the church of Freising by charter dated 1025, witnessed by "…Tiemo comes…Heinrih filius Tiemonis comitis…"[464].   "Heinricus…Romanorum imperator augustus" confirmed market and customs rights "in villa Helmgerisberk…in comitatu Theimonis" to Kloster Niedaltaich by charter dated 19 Feb 1049[465].  Wegener refers to an exchange of property between Thiemo grandfather of Oudalrich von Windeperge and Egilbert Bishop of Passau dated [1045/50][466].  The necrology of the Niedermünster at Regensburg records the death "Non Mar" of "Diemar com"[467]

m ---.  The name of Thiemo's wife is not known. 

Graf Thiemo [I] & his wife had eight children:

1.         THIEMO [II] [Dietmar] (-killed in battle 28 Aug 1040).  According to the 14th century Genealogia comitum Neuburgensium sive Formbacensium, "Tiemo senior genuit iuniorem Tiemonem, Hermannum Bambergensem prepositum, Dietricum clericum, Fridericum, Heinricum"[468]

-        see below.   

2.         HEINRICH [I] [Hesso] (-[1030]).  According to the 14th century Genealogia comitum Neuburgensium sive Formbacensium, "Tiemo senior genuit iuniorem Tiemonem, Hermannum Bambergensem prepositum, Dietricum clericum, Fridericum, Heinricum"[469].  "Chunigundæ imperatricis augustæ" donated property to the church of Freising by charter dated 1025, witnessed by "…Tiemo comes…Heinrih filius Tiemonis comitis…"[470]m HIMILTRUD, daughter of ---.  Wegener refers to the donation to St Emmeram dated [1030] by Himildrud widow, with powers to her son Hermann, for the soul of her husband Heinrich, witnessed by "Routpreht comes, Meginhart comes"[471].  Graf Heinrich [I] &  his wife had [three] children: 

a)         HERMANN .  Wegener refers to the donation to St Emmeram dated [1030] by Himildrud widow, with powers to her son Hermann, for the soul of her husband Heinrich, witnessed by "Routpreht comes, Meginhart comes"[472]

b)         [TUTA .  Proof that Heinrich [I] [von Formbach] had a daughter named Tuta seems shaky.  It depends on the interpretation of two documents, the first of which is the Codex Traditionum of Formbach monastery which records a donation by "domna Himildrudis filia Hessonis"[473], and the second the same source which records a dispute with Suben monastery and names "due…sorores Touta et Himildrud…nobilissimis"[474].  The basis for assuming that "Hesso" is the same person as "Heinrich [I]" is unclear.]  same person as…?  TUTA (-2 Feb or 14 Mar [after 1070]).  "Tuta von Formbach" is shown as the wife of Péter King of Hungary in Europäische Stammtafeln[475].  No primary source has been identified which indicates either the marriage of King Péter to "Tuta" or Tuta's parentage.  As shown below, there are late references to a "Queen Tuta" having founded the monastery of Suben (near Schärding in Upper Austria), one of which states that she was "queen of Hungary".  No primary source has been found which links "Queen Tuta" with Tuta, joint founder of Vornbach monastery together with her sister Himiltrud, whose father "Hesso" is assessed by Wegener to have been the same person as Heinrich [I] [von Formbach].  Wegener says[476] that "Queen Tuta" was the second wife of Béla I King of Hungary, the marriage having taken place after the death of his first wife which he dates to "after 1052" (Europäische Stammtafeln suggests that King Béla's first wife died "after 1059"[477]).  He bases his argument on connections with the monastery of Suben founded in 1040.   He explains[478] that Archbishop Eberhard (von Sulzbach) names "Tuta" (in a document dated 1153, more than a century after the events) as "die Gründerin von Suben, Königin", and that in an even later document from the monastery she is called "Königin von Ungarn", although it cannot be concluded from these documents that she was queen at the date she founded the monastery.  He then highlights a connection between possible descendants of King Béla's daughter Sophia (by her first husband Ulrich Marchese of Istria) and the same monastery which, he suggests, indicates that Sophia was the daughter of "Queen Tuta".  The chronology of his argument is shaky as Sophia must have been born before [1050], when King Béla's known Polish wife appears still to have been alive.  Who, then, was "Queen Tuta" and who was her husband?  The existence of a "Queen Tuta" is confirmed by the necrology of Regensburg Monastery which records the death "IV Non Feb" of "Tuta regina"[479], although this gives no indication of the country involved or the date of her death.  Assuming that Tuta was queen of Hungary, and that she lived during the mid-11th century, her possible husbands are King Péter, King Sámuel Aba, King András I and King Béla I.  The last-named is unlikely, as shown above.  His brother and predecessor, King András, is recorded as having married a Russian princess.  This leaves King Sámuel and King Péter.  Nothing is known of the wife of the former, but considering his probable date of birth it is likely that he was married before his accession in 1041, in which case his wife was most likely a Hungarian noblewoman.  This leaves King Péter, a possibility which Wegener apparently ignores.  There appears no factual basis for the speculation that "Queen Tuta" was the wife of King Péter, although the necrology of Regensburg St Emmeram which records her death also includes a reference to the death "III Kal Sep" of "Petrus Ungariorum rex"[480].  An alternative explanation for the Suben connection would be that Sophia was the daughter of King Péter and Tuta.  However, contemporary political realities suggest that a prominent marriage for a daughter of the disgraced King Péter is unlikely.  Until more information comes to light, it is safer to assume that Sophia was the daughter of King Béla and [Ryksa] of Poland, that another (so far unidentified) factor explains the apparent connection between Tuta and Sophia through Suben monastery, and that Tuta was the wife of King Péter.  This last conclusion suggests that it is even less likely that Tuta's parentage was as suggested in Europäische Stammtafeln.  If the marriage took place before Péter's accession, it is difficult to explain why the son of an ex-Doge of Venice (his father had been deposed in 1026) would marry the daughter of an obscure Bavarian noble.  If the marriage occurred after Péter became king, it seems likely that his supporters would have been able to arrange a more prominent marriage for their new ruler, particular as his sister was married to the Markgraf of Austria soon after his accession.  No primary source has been identified which throws light on the year of Tuta's death.  Assuming that her husband's second marriage is correct, she must have died many years before the "after 1070" which is suggested by Europäische Stammtafeln[481]m [as his first wife,] PÉTER King of Hungary, son of PIETRO OTTONE Orseolo Doge of Venice & his wife Maria [Grimelda] of Hungary ([Venice] [1010/15]-[30 Aug] [1060], bur Pécs, St Peter's Cathedral). 

c)         [HIMILTRUD .  Proof that Heinrich [I] [von Formbach] had a daughter named Himiltrud seems shaky.  It depends on the interpretation of two documents, the first of which is the Codex Traditionum of Formbach monastery which records a donation by "domna Himildrudis filia Hessonis"[482], and the second the same source which records a dispute with Suben monastery and names "due…sorores Touta et Himildrud…nobilissimis"[483].  The basis for assuming that "Hesso" is the same person as "Heinrich [I]" is unclear.  She founded Kollegiatstift Vornbach before 1050.  1070.] 

3.         PILGRIM .  Wegener refers to a donation by "Edle Tiemo" to St Emmeram for the entry of his brother Piligrim into the monastery[484].  Monk at St Emmeram [1035]. 

4.         DIETRICH (-5 Jul after [1059/64]).  According to the 14th century Genealogia comitum Neuburgensium sive Formbacensium, "Tiemo senior genuit iuniorem Tiemonem, Hermannum Bambergensem prepositum, Dietricum clericum, Fridericum, Heinricum"[485].  Canon at Bamberg Cathedral. 

5.         ULRICH [IV] .  "Heinricus…Romanorum imperator augustus" donated property "in orientali pago iuxta flumen Suarzaha…quam ibi possedet Odalricus filius Tiemonis comitis" to Kloster Niederaltaich by charter dated 8 Apr 1048[486]

6.         HERMANN (-23 Dec 1064).  According to the 14th century Genealogia comitum Neuburgensium sive Formbacensium, "Tiemo senior genuit iuniorem Tiemonem, Hermannum Bambergensem prepositum, Dietricum clericum, Fridericum, Heinricum"[487].  Provost at Bamberg Cathedral 1059.  He inherited the town of Kunstadt from Adalbert "urbis comes"[488]

7.         FRIEDRICH (-killed [1060], bur Vornbach).  According to the 14th century Genealogia comitum Neuburgensium sive Formbacensium, "Tiemo senior genuit iuniorem Tiemonem, Hermannum Bambergensem prepositum, Dietricum clericum, Fridericum, Heinricum"[489]m as her first husband, GERTRUD von Haldensleben, daughter of KONRAD Graf von Haldensleben [Nordmark] & his wife --- [von Friesland] (-21 Feb 1116).  According to the 14th century Genealogia comitum Neuburgensium sive Formbacensium, "Fridericus senioris Tiemonis filius" married "neptem ipsius regis Gertrudem", the king referred to being Heinrich IV King of Germany, and was buried at Formbach[490].  The primary source which confirms her precise parentage has not yet been identified.  She married secondly as his second wife, Ordulf Duke in Saxony [Billung].  The Annalista Saxo records the death in 1116 of "Gertrudis ductrix, avia Liuderi ducis"[491].  Graf Friedrich & his wife had one child: 

a)         HEDWIG (-[1090/93]).  The Vita Wirntonis names "Fridericus" as father of "Hedwigis, mater Lotharii regis"[492].  According to the 14th century Genealogia comitum Neuburgensium sive Formbacensium, "Hadewic mater Lotharii regis et Ite comitisse de Purchausen" was the only daughter of "Fridericus senioris Tiemonis filius" & his wife[493].  Her alleged first marriage to "Graf Heinrich" is based on a misinterpretation of the report that Simon Duke of Lorraine married "his stepmother's daughter whom she had by her first husband Graf Heinrich"[494], assuming that Duke Simon was therefore the son of Hedwig's second husband, Thierry II Duke of Lorraine, by his second wife Gertrud de Flandre.  According to Europäische Stammtafeln[495], Duke Simon was the son of his father's first wife Hedwig.  Poull[496] refers to several sources which apparently indicate that he was the son of Duke Thierry II's second marriage, including Duke Simon's own act dated 11 Apr 1126 referring to his deceased "mother Gertrude".  However, the chronology is highly unfavourable for this possibility.  If Duke Simon's wife had been the daughter of Hedwig von Formbach, by an otherwise unknown first husband, she must have been born before 1072, considering that Hedwig gave birth to two children by her husband Gerhard von Süpplingenburg who died in 1075.  This would be incompatible with Duke Simon's wife having given birth to at least seven children, even if their marriage took place as early as [1112/13] as suggested by Poull.  m firstly GERHARD von Süpplingenburg Graf im Harzgau, son of Graf im Harz- und Derlingau und in Nordthüringen & his wife Ida von Querfurt (-killed in battle Homburg 9 Jun 1075).  m secondly ([1080]) as his first wife, THIERRY II Duke of Lorraine, son of GERARD Duke of Upper Lotharingia [Matfriede] & his wife Hadwide --- (-30 Dec 1115). 

8.         [MEGINHARD IV (-killed in battle 1066).  According to the 14th century Genealogia comitum Neuburgensium sive Formbacensium, "Meginhardus frater senioris Tiemonis genuit Oudalricum, Hermannum provincie comitem et Chunradum"[497], although it appears chronologically more probable that Meginhard was the son rather than brother of "senioris Tiemonis" considering that it is unlikely that Meginhard's sons were born much before [1045/50].  Vogt von Niederaltaich [1060].]

THIEMO [II] [Dietmar], son of THIEMO [I] [Dietmar] Graf im Schweinachgau & his wife --- (-killed in battle 28 Aug 1040).  Wegener refers to a document which names "Tietmarus filius Dietmari presidis"[498].  According to the 14th century Genealogia comitum Neuburgensium sive Formbacensium, "Tiemo senior genuit iuniorem Tiemonem, Hermannum Bambergensem prepositum, Dietricum clericum, Fridericum, Heinricum"[499].  The Annalista Saxo records that "Gebehardus comes, Wulframus, Thietmarus cum pluribus Bawaricis militibus" were killed fighting the Bohemians with Otto Markgraf von Schweinfurt 28 Aug 1040[500]

m ---.  The name and origin of Graf Thiemo's wife are unknown.  Wegener suggests that she was --- von Braunschweig, daughter of Bruno [I] Graf von Braunschweig & his wife Gisela of Swabia, to explain the transmission of the names Bruno and Ekbert into the family of the Grafen von Formbach[501], although the reference to the name Bruno may be incorrect as shown below.  This appears supported by "Conradus…Romanorum rex secundus" granting the right to market and minting coins in Dorf Neunkirchen to "consanguinei nostri Ekkerbti comitis" by charter dated [Jun/Jul] 1141[502], King Konrad III being the great grandson of Heinrich III King of Germany who was the son of Gisela of Swabia by her third husband King Konrad II. 

Graf Thiemo [II] & his wife had [five] children: 

1.         EKBERT [I] (-1109).  According to the 14th century Genealogia comitum Neuburgensium sive Formbacensium, "Tiemo iunior genuit Ekkebertum, Heinricum"[503]Graf von Formbach

-        see below

2.         [BRUNO (-after 1064).  Graf von Künzinggau 1064.  The existence of a Graf Bruno is proved by the charter dated 4 Feb 1064 by which "Heinricus…rex" restored and confirmed property "Otmaringen in pago Cunzingowe in comitatu Brunonis comitis…post mortem Reginhardi comitis qui illud in beneficium habuit" to Kloster Obermünster at Regensburg[504].  Wegener suggests that "Reginhardi" in this document is a mistranscription of "Meginhardi" and therefore that Bruno was a member of the family of the Grafen von Formbach.  He suggests that he was the oldest son of Graf Thiemo [II][505], presumably to fit with his theory concerning the Brunswick origin of Graf Thiemo's wife.  He is not mentioned as son of Graf Thiemo [II] in either of the other sources which name Graf Thiemo's sons (see above).  The Annales Necrologici Fuldenses record the death "1062" of "Reginh com"[506] which suggests the separate existence of Reginhard.  If this is correct, the only link with this family is broken.  According to Europäische Stammtafeln[507], Bruno was another son of Graf Thiemo [I] but it is not known on what information this is based.] 

3.         HEINRICH [II] (-[1070]).  According to the 14th century Genealogia comitum Neuburgensium sive Formbacensium, "Tiemo iunior genuit Ekkebertum, Heinricum"[508].  The Codex Traditionum of Formbach monastery records a dispute with Suben monastery, and names "due…sorores Touta et Himildrud…nobilissimis" and "filios Meginhardi comitis Odalricum et Hermannum ac filios Tiemonis Ekkebertum et Heinricum et domnam Itam"[509].  Vogt von St Nikola 1070.  m as her first husband, ADELHEID, daughter of --- (-[1090]).  Wegener refers to a donation by brothers Gebhard and Dietrich to Göttweig after the death of their mother Adelheid dated [1090][510].  Wegener suggests that she was Adelheid von Sulzbach, daughter of Gebhard [I] Graf von Sulzbach, to explain why the name Gebhard was given to her older son[511].  Graf Heinrich [II] & his wife had three children:   

a)         GEBHARD (-[1105]).  According to the 14th century Genealogia comitum Neuburgensium sive Formbacensium, "Heinricus genuit Gebehardum et Dietricum"[512].  Wegener refers to a donation dated [1074] witnessed by "comes Ekkebertus et puer Gebehardus nepos eius"[513].  Wegener refers to a donation by brothers Gebhard and Dietrich to Göttweig after the death of their mother Adelheid dated [1090][514]Graf von Formbach.  Wegener refers to a donation to Göttweig by Dietrich brother of Graf Gebhard for the soul of the latter dated [1105][515]

b)         BENEDIKTA .  [1130].  Wegener refers to the grant by "matrona nobiliter ingénue Benedicta de Adelgeresbach", with the consent of her brother Graf Dietrich, to her "Getreuern Reginger" dated [1130], confirmed by her son Dietrich von Ollersbach after his parents' death[516]m GEBHARD von Ollersbach, son of ---. 

c)         DIETRICH (-29/30 Nov [1145], bur Kloster Vornbach).  According to the 14th century Genealogia comitum Neuburgensium sive Formbacensium, "Heinricus genuit Gebehardum et Dietricum"[517].  Wegener refers to a donation by brothers Gebhard and Dietrich to Göttweig after the death of their mother Adelheid dated [1090][518].  Graf von Viechtenstein 1116.  The Codex Traditionum of Formbach monastery records a donation by "Domnus Dietricus comes de Viehtensteine" for the soul of "uxoris sue domne Adelheide"[519].  The necrology of Seeon records the death "III Kal Dec" of "Dietricus com"[520].  The necrology of Scheftlarn records the death "III Kal Dec" of "Dietricus com"[521].  The necrology of Melk records the death "II Kal Dec" of "Dietricus com"[522]m ADELHEID, daughter of --- (-14 Jun ----).  The Codex Traditionum of Formbach monastery records a donation by "Domnus Dietricus comes de Viehtensteine" for the soul of "uxoris sue domne Adelheide"[523].  Wegener suggests that she was the daughter of Luitpold III Markgraf of Austria, on the basis of her husband's death being recorded in the necrology of Scheftlarn, a foundation of Markgraf Luitpold's son Otto Bishop of Freising with which the Grafen von Formbach had no other known connection[524].  However, this hypothesis is difficult to sustain from a chronological point of view as Markgraf Luitpold III second marriage took place in 1105 while Adelheid was already married to Dietrich in 1120.  The necrology of Melk records the death "XVIII Kal Jul" of "Adalheid com"[525].  Graf Dietrich & his wife had [one] child: 

i)          [HEDWIG (-4 Feb 1170, bur Reichersberg).  "Dominus Engelbertus Hallensis Comes…cum uxore sua Hadewiga et duobus filiis suis Gebehardo et Diterico" donated property to Reichersberg monastery by charter dated to [1150][526].  Her parentage is confirmed by the charter dated to [1160] under which "Domina Hadewick Comitissa" donated property to Reichersberg monastery, for the souls of "senioris sui Comitis Engelberei et patris sui Comitis Diterici"[527], on the assumption that "Comitis Diterici" was Dietrich Graf von Viechtenstein although this is probably not without all doubt.  Wegener refers to the uncertainty about the identity of Hedwig´s father, but adds that this is indicated by Graf Engelbert owning Viechtenstein and Kreizenstein after Graf Dietrich's death[528].  "Nobilis Princeps Dominus Gebehardus Hallensis Comes…cum matre sua Domina Hadewiga comitissa" donated property to Reichersberg monastery, with the consent of "fratre suo comite Diterico", by charter dated to [1160][529].  She became a nun at Reichersberg.  The Chronicon Magni Presbiteri records the burial "VI Id Feb 1170" of "domna Hadewich ex comitissa conversa" in "capitolio canonicorum"[530]m (before 1145) ENGELBERT Graf von Wasserburg, Hallgraf, son of GEBHARD [I] [von Wasserburg] Graf von Diessen & his wife Richgard von Sponheim (-20 Sep 1161).] 

4.         THIEMO [III] [Dietmar] (-1102).  The Passio Tiemonis Archyepiscopi Iuvavensis records that "Tiemonis seu Theodamari…" was "parentibus alto Baioariorum genere oriundus, in primeval ætate Altensi monasterio"[531].  Wegener suggests that this must indicate the family of the Grafen von Formbach which was the only one with whom the name Thiemo was associated[532].  Abbot of St Peter 1070.  Archbishop of Salzburg 1090. 

5.         IDA (-after 1101).  The Codex Traditionum of Formbach monastery records a dispute with Suben monastery, and names "due…sorores Touta et Himildrud…nobilissimis" and "filios Meginhardi comitis Odalricum et Hermannum ac filios Tiemonis Ekkebertum et Heinricum et domnam Itam"[533]same person as…?   IDA von Ratelberg (-Asia Minor [Sep] 1101 or after).  According to Europäische Stammtafeln[534], the wife of Luitpold II Markgraf of Austria was the daughter of Graf Thiemo [II], although the primary source on which this is based has not yet been identified.  The chronology is not favourable for this hypothesis in view of Graf Thiemo's death being recorded in 1040.  If this paternity was correct, Ida would have been about twenty years older than her husband, and at least in her early to mid-forties when she gave birth to her son Luitpold, which seems improbable.  The primary source which confirms her name "von Ratelberg" has not yet been identified.  The Auctarium Mariaecellense in 1100 records that "Ita marchionisse Austrie, Liupoldi marchionis relicta" left for Jerusalem[535].  Albert of Aix records that "Guillaume comte et prince du Poitou de la famille d'Henri III empereur" crossed Hungary peacefully with Welf Duke of Bavaria and "la noble comtesse Ida de la marche d'Autriche", entered the territory of the Bulgars in which "le duc des Bulgares nommé Guzh" refused their passage into Adrianople[536], undated but a passage adjacent to this text records events in 1101.  The army was scattered after being defeated by the Turks near Tarsus in Asia Minor in [Sep] 1101.  It is not known what happened to Markgräfin Ida, but she was presumably killed.  Albert of Aix says that "some say that she was taken into permanent exile in the kingdom of Khorazan[537].  According to later legend, she ended her days in a harem where she gave birth to the Muslim hero Zengi: the Historia Welforum records that "Itam comitissam, matrem Leopaldi marchionis orientalis" was kidnapped by "unus de principibus Sarracenorum…ex eaque Sanguinem illum sceleratissumum, ut aiunt, progenuit"[538]m LUITPOLD II Markgraf of Austria, son of ERNST Markgraf of Austria & his first wife Adelheid von Meissen [Wettin] ([1058/63]-12 Oct 1095, bur Gars). 

 

 

EKBERT [I], son of THIEMO [II] [Dietmar] Graf [von Formbach] & his wife [--- von Braunschweig] (-1109).  According to the 14th century Genealogia comitum Neuburgensium sive Formbacensium, "Tiemo iunior genuit Ekkebertum, Heinricum"[539].  The Codex Traditionum of Formbach monastery records a dispute with Suben monastery, and names "due…sorores Touta et Himildrud…nobilissimis" and "filios Meginhardi comitis Odalricum et Hermannum ac filios Tiemonis Ekkebertum et Heinricum et domnam Itam"[540]Graf von Formbach [1070].  The Annales Reicherspergenses record that in 1078, during the war between Rudolf von Rheinfelden and Emperor Heinrich IV, the latter destroyed "Niwenburch castrum"[541].  Graf im Kinziggau 1067.  He founded Kloster Vornbach in 1094.  The Codex Traditionum of Formbach monastery records the foundation of the monastery by "Eckebertus comes…avo suo Thymone" and "uxor eius Mathilt…patrui sui Adalberonis episcopi"[542].  The Codex Traditionum of Formbach monastery records a donation by "domnus Ekkebertus comes", witnessed by "Ekkeberti et Eberhardi filiorum Ekkeberti comitis…"[543].  The Annales Reicherspergenses record the death in 1109 of "Ekkebetus comes"[544]

[m firstly ---.  Wegener suggests that Graf Ekbert must have had an earlier wife who was the mother of his son Eberhard, in order to explain the introduction into the family of this name which is not found either among the ancestors of Graf Ekbert or his known wife Mechtild[545].] 

m MECHTILD von Lambach, daughter of GOTTFRIED Markgraf in der Kärtner Mark & his wife --- (before 1050-[1100]).  The Vita Wirntonis names "Mahtilt" wife of "Eckebertus comes, avo suo Thymone"[546].  The Codex Traditionum of Formbach monastery records the foundation of the monastery by "Eckebertus comes…avo suo Thymone" and "uxor eius Mathilt…patrui sui Adalberonis episcopi"[547].  The Vita Adalberonis Episcopi Wirziburgensis records that "Gotfridum…marchionem [filium comitis Arnoldi…in Lambacensi loco]…filia" married "Ekkeberto comiti cuius castrum Niwenburc dictum", specifying that she had "urbs Putina" as dowry[548]

-        see below

b)         [daughter .  Her parentage and marriage is suggested by the charter dated 1313 under which "Graf Heinrich von Leonberch…und unser…Ohaim Graf Albert von Hals" confirmed a donation to Fürstencelle[582].  The primary source which more precisely confirms the relationship has not yet been identified.  m WERNHARD [I] Graf von Leonberg (-1257).] 

3.         ALBERT [V] .  1215/1232. 

 

 

ALBERT [VI] von Hals, son of ALRAM [IV] Graf von Hals & his wife --- (-5 Oct 1305, bur Osterhofen).  "Albertus de Hals" donated property to Osterhoven monastery, for the soul of "patrem nostrum Alramum de Hals", by charter dated 1259[583]Graf von Hals.  The Ratisponensis Annales record that "Albertus de Hals" was made count "a rege Rodulfo" in 1281[584].  "Dominus Albertus dictus de Hals Comes…Advocatus noster" donated property to Aspach monastery, for the souls of "uxoris sue Elisabethe iam viventis et duarum defunctarum Alheidis et Agnetis et puerorum suorum", by charter dated 1282[585].   The necrology of Seligenthal records the death "III Non Oct" of "dominus Albertus de Hals"[586]

m secondly AGNES, daughter of --- (-1 or 3 Mar before 1282).  "Dominus Albertus dictus de Hals Comes…Advocatus noster" donated property to Aspach monastery, for the souls of "uxoris sue Elisabethe iam viventis et duarum defunctarum Alheidis et Agnetis et puerorum suorum", by charter dated 1282[589].   The necrology of St Salvator records the death "Kal Mar" of "Agnes com de Halse"[590].  The necrology of Seligenthal records the death "V Non Mar" of "Agnes von Halse"[591].  Wegener suggests that the second wife of Graf Albert [VI] was Agnes von Hirschberg, daughter of Gebhard [IV] Graf von Hirschberg & his [second] wife Sophie von Sulzbach, as her husband is named at Rosenberg with her supposed nephew Graf Gebhard [VI][592]

m thirdly (contract 8 Jul 1282) as her second husband, ELISABETH von Truhendingen, widow of BERTHOLD von Schlüsselberg, daughter of FRIEDRICH Graf von Truhendingen & his wife Margareta von Andechs-Merano (-[21] Dec 1308).  "Dominus Albertus dictus de Hals Comes…Advocatus noster" donated property to Aspach monastery, for the souls of "uxoris sue Elisabethe iam viventis et duarum defunctarum Alheidis et Agnetis et puerorum suorum", by charter dated 1282[593].   The Annales Osterhovenses record the death "1308 circa festum beati Thome apostoli" of "Elyzabet comtissa de Hals", naming her two sons[594].  Her parentage is suggested by the charter dated 1296 under which "Graf Albrecht von Hals" confirmed a donation to Fürstencelle by "Graf Rapot von Ortenberch, mein Schwager" by charter dated 1296[595].  According to secondary sources, the wife of Albrecht Graf von Hals at that time was the sister of Friedrich [IV] Graf von Truhendingen not of Graf Rapoto.  Consistency with this charter therefore requires a loose interpretation of the German "Schwager" (brother-in-law), but it is assumed that other primary sources (not yet identified) confirm the relationship.  The necrology of Asbach records the death "XIX Kal Jan" of "Elisabeth com de Hals"[596]

Graf Albert [VI] & his first wife had two children: 

1.         KUNIGUNDE (-after 1322).  The marriage contract between "Chunegundem filiam…Al. de Halse" and "Heinricus de Horbach" is dated 12 Jan 1268[597]m (contract Straubing 12 Jan 1268) HEINRICH von Horbach, son of --- (-[1283]).

a)         [HARTWIG [II] (-[1068/69]).  Wegener highlights the absence of proof that Hartwig [II] was the son of Hartwig [I], but emphasises that this looks likely both because of the onomastics and the connection with Eichstädt[617].  Graf an der unteren Ampar.  von Berghofen 1035.  Vogt von Eichstätt 1049/53.] 

          -        see below

c)         [GOTAPOLD (-1063).  Wegener cites a source dated [1061/62] which names "Hartwigus frater patriarchæ"[620], presumably referring to Hartwig [II] although if there is doubt about the parentage of the latter the same doubts must apply in the case of Gotapold.  Patriarch of Aquileja 1048.] 

 

 

HARTWIG [II], son of [HARTWIG [I] & his wife Beliza ---] (-[1068/69]).  Wegener highlights the absence of proof that Hartwig [II] was the son of Hartwig [I], but emphasises that this looks likely both because of the onomastics and the connection with Eichstädt[621].  Graf an der unteren Ampar.  von Berghofen 1035.  Vogt von Eichstätt 1049/53.  The necrology of Freising Cathedral records the death "V Id Sep" of "Hartvigus com"[622].  The necrology of Freising Weihenstephan records the death "V Id Sep" of "Haertwicus com"[623]

-        see below

3.         UDALSCHALK (-20 Nov [1115], bur Suben).  Wegener cites a donation dated 2 Apr 1068 by "nobilis Udalscalh" at the request of his brother Ernst, and another of the same date by Haertwic Vogt von Eichstätt in which Ernst and Udalschalk are first witnesses[626].  Graf im Lurngau.  The Codex Traditionum of Suben monastery records that "Comes Udalscalchus et coniunx Adalheit" transferred the monastery to "Altmanno suo"[627].  The necrology of St Andreas an der Traisen records the death "XI Kal Dec" of "Oudalscalcus com"[628]m firstly EMMA, daughter of --- (-[1100]).  Wegener cites a source which names (in order) "Wodalscalcus comes, Emma comitissa"[629].  According to Wegener, she may have been Emma von Lechsgemünd, daughter of Kuno Graf von Lechsgemünd & his wife Mechtild von Horburg, citing a donation by Udalschalk dated [1115] which is witnessed by Friedrich [II] Graf von Tengling and his son Konrad which, he suggests, indicates a close relationship.  His explanation is that the wives of Graf Friedrich and Graf Udalschalk were sisters[630], although this appears highly speculative.  m secondly as her second husband, ADELHEID of Carniola, widow of FRIEDRICH Domvogt von Regensburg, daughter of ULRICH I Markgraf of Carniola & his wife Sophia of Hungary (-Kloster Tegernsee before 1124, maybe [1122]).  The Historia Welforum refers to "aliam sororem eius quidam comes [=Poponem marchionem]" having been taken from her cloister by "quidam comes" by whom she had "Fridericum Ratisponensem advocatum"[631].  The primary source which corroborates her second marriage has not so far been identified.  The Codex Traditionum of Suben monastery records that "Comes Udalscalchus et coniunx Adalheit" transferred the monastery to "Altmanno suo"[632].  "Adelhaid commitissa…cum filio suo Altmanno" donated property to Suben priory by charter dated to before 1124[633].  Graf Udalschalk & his first wife had four children: 

a)         KONRAD (-before 20 Jan 1112).  The primary source which confirms his parentage has not yet been identified.  The anti-archbishop of Salzburg Berthold, son of Burchard, granted the castle of Attems (near Udine) to his relatives Konrad and his wife Mathilde by charter dated 8 Nov 1106[634].  Vogt at Aquileja.  m (before 3 Oct 1102) MATHILDE of Istria, daughter of BURKHARD II Markgraf of Istria [Moosburg] & his wife Acica --- (-after 20 Jan 1112).  "Acica relicta quondam Pucardi marchisi…cum propinquo meo Wilelm de loco Puzolo" [Pozzuolo] donated her property in Italy to "Conradus et Mactilt ambo jugales filia et genere meo" by charter dated 13 Feb 1107, signed by "Torincus vicecomes et Regenardus filius eius…"[635].  Wegener refers to a source dated 3 Oct 1102 which names "Conradus advocatus Aquilegiensis" and his wife Mathilde[636].  He also refers to Archbishop Berthold "filius quondam Purchardi" granting Schloß Attems in Friulia to his relatives Konrad and Mathilde dated 8 Nov 1106[637].  "Mattild filia quondam Purcardi" sold her properties in Italy inherited from "patris vel matris seu fratris" to "Petrus sacerdos" by charter dated 20 Jan 1112, subject to her lifetime use and that of "filii et filie predicte Mattilde…ex Cuonorado viro suo"[638].  Graf Konrad & his wife had [four or more] children: 

i)          sons (-died after 20 Jan 1112).  Their existence is confirmed by the charter dated 20 Jan 1112 under which their mother "Mattild filia quondam Purcardi" sold her properties in Italy inherited from "patris vel matris seu fratris" to "Petrus sacerdos" subject to her lifetime use and that of "filii et filie predicte Mattilde…ex Cuonorado viro suo"[639]

ii)         daughters (-died after 20 Jan 1112).  Their existence is confirmed by the charter dated 20 Jan 1112 under which their mother "Mattild filia quondam Purcardi" sold her properties in Italy inherited from "patris vel matris seu fratris" to "Petrus sacerdos" subject to her lifetime use and that of "filii et filie predicte Mattilde…ex Cuonorado viro suo"[640]

d)         ADALBERO .  The Codex Traditionum of Suben monastery records that "Adalbero Comes filius Udalscalci Comitis" donated property to Suben monastery[642].  Graf im Lurngau [1135]. 

Graf Udalschalk & his second wife had [three] children: 

e)         [WILLIBIRG .  According to Wegener[643], the wife of Graf Konrad was probably the daughter of Udalschalk Graf im Lurngau & his second wife, suggesting that the title Duke of Merano may have been transmitted through her mother to Willibirg's son.  However, this assumes that the transmission of the title had some hereditary basis which, as can be seen from the case of other ducal appointments in Germany in the 11th and 12th centuries, is not inevitable.  The necrology of Undensdorf records the death "III Id Jan" of "Willibirch coma" and "IX Kal Oct" of "Willebirch coma"[644]m KONRAD Graf von Dachau, son of ARNOLD von Scheyern Graf von Dachau & his wife Beatrix von Reipertshofen (-5 Nov, after 1130, bur Scheyern).] 

f)          [ADELHEID (-10 Mar before 1120).  According to Wegener, the first wife of Graf Burkhard [IV] was the daughter of Graf Udalschalk by his second wife (after whom she was named), basing his theory on their son being named "Uto", a shortened form of his maternal grandfather's name[645].  The necrology of Salzburg St Rudpert records the death "VI Id Mar" of "Adelheit de Mosiburch"[646]m as his first wife, BURKHARD [IV] Graf von Moosburg, son of BURKHARD [III] von Moosburg Vogt von St Castulus und von Isen & his wife --- (-[1138]).  Vogt von St Castelus.] 

g)         ALTMANN (-27 Mar 1149).  The Codex Traditionum of Suben monastery records that "Comes Udalscalchus et coniunx Adalheit" transferred the monastery to "Altmanno suo"[647].  The relationship between the donors and Altmann is clarified in the same source which records a donation by "Adelhaid Commitissa…cum filio suo Altmanno Cholomunzi"[648].  "Adelhaid commitissa…cum filio suo Altmanno" donated property to Suben priory by charter dated to before 1124[649].  Bishop of Trient 1123.

5.         [ADALBERT (-[Aug 1096]).  The primary source which confirms his parentage has not yet been identified.  An indication that Adalbert may have belonged to the family of the Grafen von Grögling is provided by the witness list of his marriage treaty, quoted below, in which “Ernust comes” can probably be identified as Ernst Graf von Grögling (see above).  Vizedom zu Freising.  von Ortenburg in Kärnten 1093.  m BERTHA, daughter of [OTTO [I] von Diessen & his wife ---].  Wegener quotes the witness list of the marriage treaty of Adalbert Vizedom von Freising and Bertha, dated [1070], which lists in order "Heinrih filius Marchwardi Carinthiensis comitis, Arnolt comes de Diezan, Meginhart comes de Giltichingen, Otto comes de Daningan, Otto comes de Skyryn, Ernust comes"[650] and assesses that the names indicate that Bertha must have been a member of the family of the Grafen von Diessen.  He speculates that Otto [I] must have been her father as she named her second son Otto[651].]

ERNST, son of [HARTWICH [II] Graf an der unteren Ampar & his wife Avisa ---] (-12 Nov [1096/97]).  Wegener highlights the absence of proof that Ernst was the son of Hartwig [II], but emphasises that this looks likely both because of the onomastics and the connection with Eichstädt[652].  Graf 1070.  Vogt zu Eichstätt 1085.  Graf von Grögling 1096.  Graf von Ottenburg.  The Liber Oblagiorum of Freising Cathedral records the death "II Id Nov" of "Ernest com", and his donation of "Druchtering"[653]

m (after Aug 1078) as her second husband, LIUTGARD von Zähringen, widow of DIEPOLD [II] von Giengen Markgraf im Nordgau, daughter of BERTHOLD I Duke of Carinthia, Markgraf of Verona & his first wife Richwara of Swabia (-18 Mar [1119]).  Wegener refers to the "tabula consanguinitatis" of Wibald von Corvey which names Liutgard as the daughter of "Bertolfus cum Barba" and mother of "marchio Theobaldus"[654].  The Fundatio Monasterii Richenbacensis names "Lukardis" as mother of "marchio Dietpaldus" in connection with the foundation of Reichenbach[655].  The primary source which confirms her second marriage has not yet been identified. 

Graf Ernst & his wife had four children:

a)         [GERHARD [I] (-[1170]).  Wegener highlights the absence of documentary proof that Gerhard [I] was the son of Hartwig [III] but confirms that he possessed all the same properties as his supposed father[659]Graf von Grögling [1140].  Graf von Dollnstein 1149.] 

          -        see below

b)         [GEBHARD [I] (-1158 or after).  Wegener highlights the absence of documentary proof that Gebhard [I] was the son of Hartwig [III] but says "he could only have been a brother of Graf Gerhard [I]"[660], which certainly looks likely considering the curious naming pattern in this family.  Graf von Grögling.] 

3.         ERNST [II] (-27 Oct [1123/30] or after).  Wegener cites a source which names "Ernest comes de Chegelingen frater Hartwici advocati"[661].  Graf von Grögling.  "Nobilis quidam Ernestus", brother of Bishop Gebhard and of Vogt Hertwic, founded the Benedictine monastery of Plankstetten in 1129[662]

GERHARD [I], son of [HARTWIG [III] Graf von Grögling & his wife --- von Mainz] (-[1170]).  Wegener highlights the absence of documentary proof that Gerhard [I] was the son of Hartwig [III] but confirms that he possessed all the same properties as his supposed father[663].  According to Europäische Stammtafeln[664], Gerhard [I] was the possible son of Graf Hartwig [III].  Graf von Grögling [1140].  Graf von Dollnstein 1149.  Vogt von Plankstetten [1140/48].  Vogt von Eichstätt 1142.  Vogt von St Walburg [1145]. 

[m firstly ---.  Wegener bases his theory of a first marriage of Graf Gebhard [I] on the fact that Gebhard's son Gebhard [I] reached his majority in 1179, which means that Gebhard's marriage to Sophie von Sulzbach would probably have been late for it to have been his first[665].] 

m [secondly] SOPHIE von Sulzbach, daughter of GEBHARD [III] Graf von Sulzbach & his wife Mechtild von Bayern (-after 1 Aug 1227).  The primary source which confirms her parentage has not yet been identified.  Wegener cites a source dated 1 Aug 1227 which names "Gebehardus comes de Hirzberc filius Sophie, Gebehardus comes de Sulzbach fratruelis eius"[666]

Graf Gerhard [I] & his [second] wife had three children: 

1.         GEBHARD [II] ([1160] or after-[1232]).  Wegener cites a source dated 1 Aug 1227 which names "Gebehardus comes de Hirzberc filius Sophie, Gebehardus comes de Sulzbach fratruelis eius"[667]Graf von Grögling 1179/1226.  Graf von Dollnstein 1186/[1230].  Graf von Hirschberg 1205.  Vogt von Eichstätt und von St Walburg 1188.  [m firstly ---.  Wegener bases his theory of a first marriage of Graf Gebhard [II] on the basis of his wife Agnes being named in a document dated 1232 together with two sons both named Gebhard, and the unlikelihood that both were born from the same marriage[668].]  m [secondly] AGNES, daughter of ---.  The primary source which confirms her marriage has not yet been identified.  Wegener suggests that she was a member of the family Trühendigen in which the name Friedrich, given to her son, was commonly used and because she held property in Aha[669].  1222/32.  Graf Gebhard [II] & his [first] wife had two children:

          Graf Gebhard [II] & his [second] wife had [four] children: 

c)         [AGNES (-before 1282).  Wegener suggests that the second wife of Graf Albert [VI] was the daughter of Graf Gebhard [II], named after his [second] wife, as her husband is named at Rosenberg with her supposed nephew Graf Gebhard [VI][672].  "Dominus Albertus dictus de Hals Comes…Advocatus noster" donated property to Aspach monastery, for the souls of "uxoris sue Elisabethe iam viventis et duarum defunctarum Alheidis et Agnetis et puerorum suorum", by charter dated 1282[673].   The necrology of St Salvator records the death "Kal Mar" of "Agnes com de Halse"[674].  The necrology of Seligenthal records the death "V Non Mar" of "Agnes von Halse"[675]m as his second wife, ALBERT [VI] Graf von Hals, son of ALRAM [IV] Graf von Hals & his wife --- (-5 Oct 1305, bur Osterhofen).]

Chapter 13.  GRAFEN von HOHENBURG

 

 

 

The first reference to the Grafschaft von Hohenburg im Nordgau is dated [1115].  The earlier history of the county has not been researched, nor is it known when the castle of Hohenburg was built.  The brothers Ernst [II] and Friedrich [I] Grafen von Hohenburg donated the castle to the church of Regensburg St Emmeram in [1147].  However, this arrangement must have been changed subsequently as the son of Friedrich [I], Friedrich [II], was referred to as Graf von Hohenburg in the record of his death in [1209].  After he died, Hohenburg was inherited by his widow and transmitted to her children by her second marriage, who were known as "Markgrafen von Hohenburg", the title Markgraf being a hang-over from the discontinued Markgrafschaft im Nordmark which had previously been held by the family of Vohburg und Cham. 

 

 

ERNST [I] von Poigen, son of HERMANN [I] Graf von Poigen & his [second wife ---] (-1122 or after).  Wegener quotes a source dated [1121/22] which names "Gebehardus comes de Piugin et frater eius Ernist"[690].  "Ernestus de Hohenburch" donated property to Geisenfeld monastery "in manus amite sue Abbatisse Friderune", on the occasion of the entry of one of his sisters in the monastery, witnessed by "frater eius Adalbreth…"[691]Graf von Hohenburg

m ADELHEID von Regensburg, daughter of FRIEDRICH [II[ Domvogt von Regensburg & his wife Liutgard von Ratelberg (-[1157]).  The Notæ Genealogicæ Bavaricæ name "Alheidem de Hohenburch et monialem in Nidermunster et Fridericum advocatum" as children of "Fridericus advocatus Ratispon senior"[692].  On the other hand, the Historia Cremifanensis names "domina Alhaidis de Wiltperg" as widow of "comitis Ernstonis de Hohenburch" when recording her donation[693].  The Codex Traditionum of Formbach monastery records a donation by "Domna Liutkart cometissa cum manu filii sui Friderici Ratisponensis advocate ac filie ipsius domne Adelheidis de Wiltperge"[694].  A charter of Admont dated to [1157] records donations by "Fridericus Ratisponensis advocatus", when setting out for Jerusalem, by "matrem suam Liutkardam" after her son died on the journey, by "uxor eius…Judith", and by "soror predicti advocate cometissa de hohenburch Adelheit…et filii eiusdem cometisse comes…Ernst et domnus Fridericus"[695]

Graf Ernst [I] & his wife had three children: 

1.         ERNST [II] von Hohenburg (-1162 or after).  A charter of Admont dated to [1157] records donations by "Fridericus Ratisponensis advocatus", when setting out for Jerusalem, by "matrem suam Liutkardam" after her son died on the journey, by "uxor eius…Judith", and by "soror predicti advocate cometissa de hohenburch Adelheit…et filii eiusdem cometisse comes…Ernst et domnus Fridericus"[696]Graf von Hohenburg.  "Comes Ernest de Hohenburg et frater eius Fridericus cum ambo essent sine uxoris et filiis" donated property "castrum suum quod dicitur Hohenburc" to Regensburg St Emmeram by charter dated [1147][697]

2.         FRIEDRICH [I] von Hohenburg (-26 Jan 1178, bur Kastl).  A charter of Admont dated to [1157] records donations by "Fridericus Ratisponensis advocatus", when setting out for Jerusalem, by "matrem suam Liutkardam" after her son died on the journey, by "uxor eius…Judith", and by "soror predicti advocate cometissa de hohenburch Adelheit…et filii eiusdem cometisse comes…Ernst et domnus Fridericus"[698]Graf von Hohenburg.  "Comes Ernest de Hohenburg et frater eius Fridericus cum ambo essent sine uxoris et filiis" donated property "castrum suum quod dicitur Hohenburc" to Regensburg St Emmeram by charter dated [1147]695m (after [1147]) --- von Regensburg, daughter of HEINRICH Burggraf von Regensburg & his second wife --- von Öttingen.  The Notæ Genealogicæ Bavaricæ name "Ottonem et duas filias" as children of "purcravius" & his second wife "de Otingen", specifying that one daughter married "Fridericus de Hohenburch"[699].  Graf Friedrich [I] & his wife had one child:

Chapter 15.  GRAFEN von KASTL

 

 

The county of Kastl lay in the Bavarian Nordgau, based around the town of Kastl south-west of Amberg in the present-day Bavarian region of Oberpfalz west of the border with the Czech Republic. 

 

 

1.         HERMANN [I] (-21 Apr [1056]).  Wegener cites the 14th century Kastler Reimchronik which refers to the father of Hermann Graf von Kastl as a son of Ernst I Duke of Swabia[704].  There is presumably confusion with Hermann IV Duke of Swabia, the son of Duke Ernst.  Graf von Kastl.  Wegener suggests that Hermann was the brother of Gebhard [I] Graf von Sulzbach, and that they were both sons of Hermann IV Duke of Swabia.  However, this is difficult to sustain chronologically considering that Duke Hermann married in [1035] while Graf Hermann had at least two children before his death in [1056].  The Chronicon Schirense names "nobilis quidam comes de Chastelin Hermannus" as owner of property "apud Willingan…Helingerswenga…autem Interior Cella"[705].  The necrology of Scheyern records the death "XI Kal Mai" of "Hermannus com, huic copulate est Haziga coma, sed minima ab eo cognita"[706].  [m firstly ---.  There is no direct proof of this supposed first marriage of Graf Hermann [I].  However, if his children had been born from his marriage to Haziga it would be surprising that they are not named as her sons in the detailed account which is given in the Chronicon Schirense.]  m [secondly] as her [second] husband, HAZIGA von Scheyern, [widow of ---,] daughter of --- (-1104).  The Chronicon Schirense records the marriage of "Haziga…de castro Schyren…[vidua] comiti Hermanno de Chastel...[et] comiti Ottoni de Schyren"[707].  A charter dated to [1030] records the donation of "Comes de Chastelin Hermannus…et…sueque uxori Comitisse felicis memorie Hazige" to the monastery of Scheyern, adding that she later married "Comiti Ottoni de Schyren" by whom she had three sons "Ottonem…Pernhardum et Ekkardum Comites"[708].  She married [secondly/thirdly] Otto I Graf von Scheyern.  Graf Hermann [I] & his [first] wife had [three] children: 

a)         [HERMANN [II] (-1071 or after).  Wegener highlights the absence of proof that Hermann [II] was the son of Hermann [I][709]Graf von Kastl.  Markgraf von Banz.]  m (before 7 Jul 1069) as her first husband, ALBERADA [Bertha] von Schweinfurt, daughter of OTTO Markgraf von Schweinfurt & his wife Irmgard di Susa (-11 Jan [1103]).  The Annalista Saxo names (in order) "Eilica, Iudhita, Beatrix, Gisla, Berta" as the five daughters of Otto von Schweinfurt and Immula, referring to Berta's husband as "quidam de principus Bawariorum, qui agnominatus fuit de municione sua Havekesberh dicta"[710].  The Fundatio Monasterii Banzensis names "marchio Hermannus…uxorem Alberadam" as founders of the monastery of Banz in [1071], and their two children "Heinricum, Ottonem"[711].  She married secondly her brother-in-law, Friedrich Graf von Kastl.  The primary source which confirms her second marriage has not yet been identified.  Graf Hermann [II] & his wife had four children: 

i)          HEINRICH (-after [1071]).  The Fundatio Monasterii Banzensis names "marchio Hermannus…uxorem Alberadam" as founders of the monastery of Banz in [1071], and their two children "Heinricum, Ottonem"[712].  The same passage later clarifies that Alberada had three sons "Heinricus et Otto…Conradum" and one daughter[713]

ii)         OTTO (-26 Sep [1125?]).  The Fundatio Monasterii Banzensis names "marchio Hermannus…uxorem Alberadam" as founders of the monastery of Banz in [1071], and their two children "Heinricum, Ottonem"[714].  Graf von Habsberg.  m ADELHEID, daughter of --- (-9 Aug ----).  The primary source which confirms her marriage has not yet been identified. 

iii)        KONRAD .  The Fundatio Monasterii Banzensis names "Heinricus et Otto…Conradum" and one unnamed daughter as the children of Alberada[715], presumably by her first husband. 

iv)        JUDITH .  She is named daughter of Berta von Schweinfurt & her unnamed husband in the Annalista Saxo, which specifies that she unhappily married a ministerialis, by whom she had two daughters "Iuditam que Fortis est dicta et eius sororem, quam Folradus de Hantorp accepit"[716]m ---. 

b)         FRIEDRICH (-11 Nov 1103).  The primary source which confirms his parentage has not yet been identified.  Graf von Kastlm as her second husband, his sister-in-law, ALBERADA [Bertha] von Schweinfurt, widow of HERMANN [II] Graf von Kastl Markgraf von Banz, daughter of OTTO Markgraf von Schweinfurt (-11 Jan [1103]).  The Annalista Saxo names (in order) "Eilica, Iudhita, Beatrix, Gisla, Berta" as the five daughters of Otto von Schweinfurt and Immula, referring to Berta's husband as "quidam de principus Bawariorum, qui agnominatus fuit de municione sua Havekesberh dicta"[717].  The Fundatio Monasterii Banzensis names "marchio Hermannus…uxorem Alberadam" as founders of the monastery of Banz in [1071], and their two children "Heinricum, Ottonem"[718].  The primary source which confirms her second marriage has not yet been identified.  Graf Friedrich & his wife had [one] child: 

i)          [HERMANN (-23 Sep ----).  Wegener quotes the Kastler Reimchronik which records that "Hermannus comes filius Friderici fundatoris" was killed[719], although there may be some confusion with Friedrich's brother Hermann who is recorded elsewhere as founder of Banz.  If this is correct, "Hermann" would be an error for "Heinrich" or "Konrad", two of the sons assigned to Hermann in the Fundatio Monasterii Banzensis as shown above.  No other record has been found of Friedrich having a son.]   

c)         [daughter .  According to Wegener[720], Graf Ratpoto's second wife was the daughter of Hermann [I] Graf von Kastl, but he appears to base this only on the transmission of the name Hermann to the couple's son, for which there must be other explanations (assuming that this son was Graf Ratpoto's son by his second marriage which, as mentioned below, has not yet been confirmed in the primary sources so far consulted).  m as his second wife, RATPOTO [IV] Graf von Cham, son of Graf DIETPOLD [I] & his wife --- (-killed in battle Hohenmölsen 15 Oct 1080).  1074.] 

 

 

 

 

Chapter 16.  GRAFEN von LECHSGEMÜND, HORBURG und GRAISBACH

 

 

 

HEINRICH, son of [HEINRICH Graf von Schweinfurt Markgraf auf dem Bayerischen Nordgau & his wife Gerberga [von Hammerstein]] (-after 1043).  Wegener argues that Heinrich was the son of Markgraf Heinrich as his county lay in the Markgrafschaft Nordgau, but he does identify any more specific source on which his suggestion is based[721].  Graf an der Pegnitz 1021/43.  "Heinricus…rex" confirmed rights in "abbatiam Bargi in pago Nortgouue in comitatu Henrici comitis" to the church of Bamberg by charter dated 12 Jan 1025[722].  "Heinricus…rex" donated property "Rotenuels in pago Ufgowi in comitatu Adalberti comitis" to the church of Speyer left to him by "Heinricus comes" by charter dated 6 Jun 1041[723].  "Heinricus…rex" donated property "quatuor mansos Tragesindorf, Mogenriut, Mazelinesriut…et Bilingesriut…in pago…Nortgowe in comitatu Heinrici comitis" to "Beringero eius fideli militi" by charter dated 14 Apr 1043[724].  "Heinricus…rex" granted property "quale domna Adalheit eiusque filius Gebehardus comes…in villis Wormerischa, Hegina, Fvrhenriet…in pago Nortgove et in comitatu Heinrici comitis" to "ministro nostro Pardoni" by charter dated 28 Nov 1043[725].  Graf an der oberen Naab 1043. 

m ---.  Wegener suggests that the wife of Graf Henrich [I] was --- im Sualafeld, daughter of KUNO [II] Graf im Sualafeld & his wife ---, to explain why Heinrich's son was named Kuno[726]

Graf Heinrich & his wife had [three] children: 

1.         [HEINRICH [II] (-after 22 Jul 1080).  Wegener suggests that Heinrich [II] was the son of Graf Heinrich [I][727].  Graf an der Pegnitz 1052/79.  "Heinricus…Romanorum imperator augustus" donated property "in villa Wolframmesdorf…et…Lideren et…in Ratmaresrivt…in pago Nortkove et in comitatu Heinrici comitis" to "Hartvvico" by charter dated 14 Apr 1054[728].  "Heinricus…Romanorum imperator augustus" donated property "in locis Skeitdorf et Geroluingen…Aribo palatinus comes ad beneficium habuit in montibus Ratispone sitas et unum in pago Nortgewe in comitatu Heinrici comitis" to the church of Eichstätt by charter dated 12 Mar 1055[729].  "Heinricus…rex" granted the right to a market "in villa Haderichesbrucca…in pago Nortgowe in comitatu Heinrici comitis" to the church of Bamberg by charter dated 17 Aug 1057[730].  "Heinricus…rex" confirmed the grant of a market in "Vvrte dictum in pago Nortgouee situm in comitatu Heinrici comitis" to the church of Bamberg by charter dated 19 Jul 1062[731].  "Heinricus…rex" granted property "in villa Dieprehdesdorf in pago Nortgowe in comitatu Heinrici" to "servienti nostro Ebbo" by charter dated 19 Oct 1079[732].  According to Wegener[733], Heinrich was the same person as the Graf von Weissenburg named in a charter dated 22 Jul 1080 under which "Heinricus…rex" granted rights to game "in pago Rodmaresperch et in pago Solzgowe in comitatu Heinrici comitis de Wizenburch et in comitatu Heinrici comitis de Sinzingen" to the church of Eischstätt, on the basis that the same county was later held by his supposed brother Kuno[734]

2.         KUNO von Lechsgemünd (-before 1094).  The necrology of Kaisheim "V Id Mar" names "Hainrici comitis de Lechgemünd primi fundatoris et Conradi filii eius"[735]

-        see below.   

3.         [FRIEDRICH [I] von Lengenfeld .  The primary source which confirms his parentage has not yet been identified.  Friedrich was the son of Heinrich Graf an der Pegnitz according to Wegener[736], although he cites no primary source to support the suggestion.  m ([1050]) as her first husband, SIGENA von Leige heiress of Morungen und Gatersleben, daughter of GOSWIN "dem Älteren" Graf von [Gross-]Leinungen & his wife --- (-Kloster Vitzenburg [24 Feb 1110/1121-23]).  The Annales Pegavienses name "domni Goswini comitis senioris de Leige filiam suam…Sigenam" as the wife of "Wicperti marchionis", specifying that she married secondly "comiti Friderico de Lengenvelt"[737], although the chronology of their descendants suggests that Friedrich must have been her first not her second husband.  She married secondly Wiprecht [I] im Balsamgau [Groitzsch].  Friedrich [I] & his wife had [two] children: 

a)         FRIEDRICH [II] von Lengenfeld .  The Annales Pegavienses name "filium eiusdem nominis" as son of "comiti Friderico de Lengenvelt" & his wife[738]

b)         [EILIKA] von Lengenfeld .  The Annales Pegavienses refer to the daughter of "comiti Friderico de Lengenvelt" & his wife Sigena as the wife of "Ruotgerus comes"[739].  The primary source which confirms her name has not yet been identified.  m RUOTGER von Feldheim, son of ---. 

 

 

KUNO von Lechsgemünd, son of HEINRICH Graf an der Pegnitz & his wife --- im Sualafeld (-before [1092/94]).  The necrology of Kaisheim "V Id Mar" names "Hainrici comitis de Lechgemünd primi fundatoris et Conradi filii eius"[740]

m MATHILDE [von Horburg], daughter of RUDOLF Graf von Achalm & his wife Adelheid von Wülflingen (-30 Sep [1092/1094]).  Ortlieb's Chronicon of Zwiefalten names (in order) "Willibirc, Mahthilt atque Beatrix" as the three daughters of "Rudolfus [et] Adelheid", in a later passage naming one of them "Mahthildis de Horeburc"[741], although it is not clear whether the latter name relates to her own property or a title of her husband.  Berthold's Chronicon of Zwiefalten names "Mahtilt soror Liutoldi comitis" as wife of "Counoni comiti de Lechisimundi"[742].  The necrology of Zwiefalten records the death "11 Kal Oct" of "Mahthilt com soror Liutoldi comitis"[743]

Graf Kuno & his wife had [eight] children: 

1.         [HEINRICH von Lechsgemünd (-killed in battle near Mellrichstadt 7 Aug 1078).  The primary source which confirms his parentage has not yet been identified.  Wegener suggests that Heinrich was the son of Graf Kuno, which is chronologically probable, but highlights the absence of proof that this is correct[744].  Heinrich is, however, not named in Berthold's Chronicon of Zwiefalten as one of the children of "Counoni comiti de Lechisimundi" and his wife "Mahtilt soror Liutoldi comitis"[745]m ---.  According to Wegener, Heinrich married as her first husband, Irmgard von Rott, daughter of Kuno [I] von Rott Pfalzgraf von Bayern & his wife Uta --- (-14 Jun [1101], bur Kastl).  He cites no primary source on which this is based, but see below under Heinrich's supposed brother Kuno for the probable reason why Wegener may have considered that this was correct.]  Graf Heinrich & his wife had [two] children: 

a)         [HEINRICH [I] (-11 Mar 1142, bur Kaisheim).  "…Otto Comes de Me—n et frater eius Heinricus…" witnessed a charter dated 28 Apr 1137 relating to Kloster Schaumhaupt[746].  There appears to be no source which confirms the name of their father.  It does not appear that they could have been the sons of Kuno von Horburg [Lechsgemünd] and his wife Irmgard von Rott as this would leave two questions unanswered: (1) why Kuno von Horburg was not referred to in the sources as Kuno von Lechsgemünd, which would presumably have been appropriate if his supposed older brother Heinrich had died without heirs; (2) why Kuno von Horburg junior, son of Kuno von Horburg did not inherit Lechsgemünd und Frontenhausen, bearing in mind that he must have been his parents' oldest son as he shared in the foundation of the monastery of Berchtesgaden with his older half-brother Berengar Graf von Sulzbach.  A better explanation is therefore that Heinrich and Otto were sons of Heinrich von Lechsgemünd.  Graf von Lechsgemünd und Frontenhausen.]

b)         [OTTO (-12 Jan before 1144).  "…Otto Comes de Me—n et frater eius Heinricus…" witnessed a charter dated 28 Apr 1137 relating to Kloster Schaumhaupt[747].  Graf von Möhren.  m G---.  Wegener cites a source dated 2 Feb [1144] which names "G" widow of Graf Otto[748].] 

2.         OTTO von Horburg .  Berthold's  Chronicon of Zwiefalten names (in order) "Ottonem comitem, Counonem Horburgensem, Burchardum episcopum Traioctensem, Bertholdo" as children of "Counoni comiti de Lechisimundi" and his wife "Mahtilt soror Liutoldi comitis"[749].  Ortlieb's Chronicon of Zwiefalten names "duo fratres germani Burchart et Otto filii sororis eius [=Counono comite cum frater eius Liutoldus comes] Mahthildis de Horeburc"" when recording a donation "in memoriam Bouch avunculus eorum", the latter not yet having been identified[750].  Graf an der unteren Naab 1115. 

3.         KUNO (-[1110] or after).  Berthold's  Chronicon of Zwiefalten names (in order) "Ottonem comitem, Counonem Horburgensem, Burchardum episcopum Traioctensem, Bertholdo" as children of "Counoni comiti de Lechisimundi" and his wife "Mahtilt soror Liutoldi comitis"[751].  1083/1103.  Graf von Horburg.  Wegener cites a donation to Hirsau dated [1110] by Kuno and his son Konrad[752]m (after [1085]) as her second husband, IRMGARD von Rott, widow of GEBHARD [II] Graf von Sulzbach, daughter of KUNO [I] von Rott Pfalzgraf von Bayern & his wife Uta --- (-14 Jun [1101], bur Kastl).  The argumentation for this second marriage of Irmgard is complex.  The Fundatio Monasterii Berchtesgadensis refers to her second marriage after "patre comitis Perengarii defuncto" but does not name her second husband[753].  Irmgard's second husband was presumably the father of "fratris sui Cunonis de Horburc" who is named in the same source as co-founder of the monastery with his brother Berengar Graf von Sulzbach.  The necrology of Baumburg records the death "XVII Kal Jul" of "Irengardis com de Sultzpach sor na"[754], which suggests that she was still the widowed "Gräfin von Sulzbach" when she died.  If this is correct, her other husband must have been Heinrich von Lechsgemünd, supposed brother of Kuno, who was killed in battle in 1078 (see above).  This is the marriage proposed by Wegener[755], although he does not go through the present argumentation in reaching his conclusion.  It would, however, contradict the explicit, although incomplete, statement in the Fundatio concerning Irmgard's marriage after the death of Graf Berengar's father.   Another probably relevant factor is the fact that "Cunonis de Horburc" is named in the Fundatio after his brother Berengar, which suggests that Kuno was the junior partner in the foundation and also the younger brother.  Until further information comes to light, it is assumed that Irmgard's Lechsgemünd marriage was her second, and that her husband was therefore Kuno von Horburg.  The Baumburg necrology entry must be explained either because Irmgard had separated from her second husband before her death, reviving her previous title, or because the compiler of the necrology considered her first husband of more importance than her second and referred to her by his name.  Graf Kuno & his wife had two children: 

a)         KUNO von Horburg (-30 Jun [1138/39]).  Son of Irmgard [von Rott], according to the Fundatio Monasterii Berchtesgadensis which names "fratris sui Cunonis de Horburc" as co-founder of the monastery of Berchtesgaden with his brother Berengar Graf von Sulzbach in [1102/05][756].  As noted above, the primary source which confirms the identity of his father has not yet been identified.  The documents dated Feb 1111 relating to the coronation of Heinrich V King of Germany as emperor name "…Cononem fratri Berengarii…" as the emperor's guarantors[757], "Berlingarium de Bavaria" being the uterine half-brother of "Cononem fratri Berengarii" if the reconstruction is accepted as shown here.  "Chuno de Horberch…cum uxore sua Adelheit" donated property to Osterhove monastery[758].  “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[759].  The necrology of Zwiefalten records the death "II Kal Jul" of "Cuono de Horburc"[760], although this could alternatively refer to this Kuno's father.  He was the possible ancestor of the Herren von Horburg, extinct in the male line in the early 15th century[761]m ([Feb 1124/1130]) as her second husband, ADELHEID van Limburg, widow of FRIEDRICH "der Streitbare" Graf von Arnsberg, daughter of HENDRIK I Graf van Limburg Duke of Lower Lotharingia & his second wife Adelheid von Botenstein (-6 Feb [1144/46], bur Bamberg St Michael).  The Annalista Saxo records the second of the two daughters of "Heinricus dux de Lintburh" and his wife Adelheid von Botenstein as the wife of "Fridericus comes de Arnesberge" but does not name her[762].  "Chuno de Horberch…cum uxore sua Adelheit" donated property to Osterhove monastery[763].  The primary source which confirms Adelheid, wife of Kuno, as the widow of Friedrich Graf von Arnsberg has not yet been identified.  The primary source which confirms her third marriage has not yet been identified.  She married thirdly (before 19 Mar 1140) Konrad II Graf von Dachau

b)         KONRAD (-murdered near Dachau [1128]).  Wegener cites a donation to Hirsau dated [1110] by Kuno and his son Konrad[764], and another source which states that he was dead in 1130[765].  If this is correct, Konrad must have been a different person from his supposed brother Kuno.  According to Europäische Stammtafeln[766], Konrad who was murdered in [1128] was the son of Berthold (see below).  It is not known whether this is based on any specific primary source.  However, it would fit neatly with Konrad son of Kuno being dead in 1130 if the two were in fact the same person. 

4.         BURKHARD (-16 May 1112, bur Utrecht St Martin).  Berthold's  Chronicon of Zwiefalten names (in order) "Ottonem comitem, Counonem Horburgensem, Burchardum episcopum Traioctensem, Bertholdo" as children of "Counoni comiti de Lechisimundi" and his wife "Mahtilt soror Liutoldi comitis"[767].  Ortlieb's Chronicon of Zwiefalten names "duo fratres germani Burchart et Otto filii sororis eius [=Counono comite cum frater eius Liutoldus comes] Mahthildis de Horeburc"" when recording a donation "in memoriam Bouch avunculus eorum", the latter not yet having been identified[768].  Provost at Strasbourg Cathedral 1089.  Bishop of Utrecht 1100. 

5.         BERTHOLD (-25 Oct before 1123).  Berthold's  Chronicon of Zwiefalten names (in order) "Ottonem comitem, Counonem Horburgensem, Burchardum episcopum Traioctensem, Bertholdo" as children of "Counoni comiti de Lechisimundi" and his wife "Mahtilt soror Liutoldi comitis", specifying that Berthold inherited Wittilingen from his mother[769].  Graf von Burgeck.  Co-founder and in 1104 Vogt of Kloster Eisenhofen an der Glonn.  m BEATRIX [von Dachau], daughter of [ARNOLD von Scheyern Graf von Dachau & his wife Beatrix von Reipertshofen].  The primary source which confirms her parentage and marriage has not yet been identified.  She is named as daughter of Graf Arnold in Europäische Stammtafeln[770] but not referred to as such in Wegener[771].  Graf Berthold & his wife had two children: 

a)         BURKHARD (-21 Jan after 1150).  Berthold's  Chronicon of Zwiefalten specifies that "Bertholdo [filio Counoni comiti de Lechisimundi]…genuit Burchardum", that the latter donated "villulam Hofestettin" to the monastery, and that he was "natura simplex et minus callidus a propinquo suo Heinrico comite de Lechisimunde"[772].  Graf [1125].  von Horburg 1150.  The necrology of Zwiefalten records the death "XII Kal Feb" of "Burchart comes"[773]

b)         HEILIKA .  The primary source which confirms her parentage and marriage has not yet been identified.  m GERHARD [I] Graf von Schauenburg (-before 1168). 

6.         [MATHILDE (-19 Oct ----).  Acording to Wegener, the wife of Friedrich [II] Graf von Tengling was the daughter of Kuno von Lechsgemünd, but his basis appears only to be the transmission of the name Konrad into the family of the Grafen von Tengling[774].  The necrology of Salzburg St Rudpert records the death "XIV Kal Nov" of "Mathil com"[775]m FRIEDRICH [II] Graf von Tengling, son of FRIEDRICH [I] Graf von Tengling & his wife Mathilde von Vohburg (-23 Jul [1120]).] 

7.         ADELHEID (-24 Feb [1108]).  The Fundatio Monasterii Baumburgensis names "in Bawarie provincial comes…Cuno…filiam Adilheit" as founder of Kloster Baumburg, naming her first husband "comes Marcohardus de castro…Marcarstain", her second husband "comes Udalricus de Pactavia" and her third husband "Berngero comiti de Sulzphach"[776].  "Cometissa…Adilheit" donated property to Bamburg, for the soul of "mariti sui Marcwardi", by charter dated to [1095][777].  The necrology of Baumburg records the death "VI Kal Mar" of "Alheidis com fundatrix"[778]m firstly MARKWARD Graf im Chiemgau, son of SIEGHARD [VII] or [VIII] Graf im Chiemgau & his first wife --- (-murdered 5 Dec [1085]).  m secondly ULRICH Graf von Passau, son of RATPOTO [IV] Graf von Cham [Ratpotonen] & his first wife Mathilde im Chiemgau [Sieghardinger] (-Regensburg 24 Feb 1099).  m thirdly ([1100]) as his first wife, BERENGAR Graf von Sulzbach, son of GEBHARD [II] Graf von Sulzbach & his wife Irmgard von Rott (-3 Dec [1125]). 

8.         [EMMA (-[1100]).  According to Wegener, the first wife of Graf Udalschalk was the daughter of Kuno von Lechsgemünd.  He cites a donation by Udalschalk dated [1115] which is witnessed by Friedrich [II] Graf von Tengling and his son Konrad which, he suggests, indicates a close relationship.  His explanation is that the wives of Graf Friedrich and Graf Udalschalk were sisters[779], although this appears highly speculative.  m as his first wife, UDALSCHALK Graf im Lurgau, son of HARTWICH [II] Graf an der unteren Ampar & his wife Avisa --- (-20 Nov [1115]).] 

 

 

HEINRICH [I] von Lechsgemünd, son of [HEINRICH [I] von Lechsgemünd] & his wife --- (-12 Mar 1142, bur Kaisheim).  Wegener cites a source dated 28 Apr 1137 which names "Otto comes de Meren et frater eius Heinricus"[780].  The reasoning behind his supposed parentage is explained above.  Graf von Lechsgemünd und Frontenhausen.  He and his wife founded Kloster Kaisheim in 1135[781].  "Comes…Hainricus de Lecgesmunde…" donated property to Bamburg by charter dated to [1150][782].  Emperor Friedrich I confirmed the foundation of Kloster Kaisersheim by "comes…Henricus de Lechsgemunde et uxor eius comitissa Luicardis ac filius eius Volchradus" by charter dated to [1155][783].  The necrology of Kaisheim "V Id Mar" names "Hainrici comitis de Lechgemünd primi fundatoris et Conradi filii eius"[784], the name of his son presumably being an error as there appears little doubt that Graf Heinrich [I] was the founder of Kaisheim.  The necrology of Baumburg records the death "VI Id Mar" of "Hainricus com de Frantenhausen"[785]

m LIUKARD, daughter of --- (-4 Feb after [1163]).  Wegener cites the foundation of Kloster Kaisheim by Graf Heinrich, his wife Liucard and son Volcrad by charter dated 21 Sep 1135[786].  Emperor Friedrich I confirmed the foundation of Kloster Kaisersheim by "comes…Henricus de Lechsgemunde et uxor eius comitissa Luicardis ac filius eius Volchradus" by charter dated to [1155][787].  The necrology of Kaisheim records the death "II Non Feb" of "Adelhaidis com fundatricis"[788], and as the same source names "Hainrici comitis de Lechgemünd primi fundatoris" it is assumed this refers to the wife of Graf Heinrich [I] although the other sources cited above indicates that her name was Liukard. 

Graf Heinrich [I] & his wife had three children: 

1.         VOLKRAT (-killed in battle before 1160).  Wegener cites the foundation of Kloster Kaisheim by Graf Heinrich, his wife Liucard and son Volcrad by charter dated 21 Sep 1135[789].  Emperor Friedrich I confirmed the foundation of Kloster Kaisersheim by "comes…Henricus de Lechsgemunde et uxor eius comitissa Luicardis ac filius eius Volchradus" by charter dated to [1155][790]Graf von Lechsgemündm LIUTGARD von Vohburg, daughter of DIEPOLD III Markgraf von Vohburg & his first wife Adelajda of Poland (-25 Sep ----).  "Comes Diepoldus de Lexgimunde cum fratre suo Heinrico et matre sua Luicarde" donated property to Tirol Neustift by charter dated 1163[791].  The necrology of Kaisheim "Kal Mar" names "comitis de Matheya et uxoris eius Luitgardis"[792], it being assumed that this refers to Volkrad Graf von Lechsgemünd, whose son was referred to as "Graf von Matrei".  Graf Volkrat & his wife had two children: 

a)         DIEPOLD (-11 Jul [1192], bur Kaisheim).  "Diepholdus filius Volhardi Comitis de Lechsgemunde…" witnessed a charter dated 1156 which donated property to Au monastery[793].  Wegener refers to an inheritance agreement dated 1160 between the brothers Heinrich and Konrad on the one side and their nephews Dietpold and Heinrich on the other[794]Graf von Lechsgemünd 1150.  "Comes Diepoldus de Lexgimunde cum fratre suo Heinrico et matre sua Luicarde" donated property to Tirol Neustift by charter dated 1163[795].  "Comes Heinricus de Frantenhusen" donated property to Bamburg by charter dated to [1165], witnessed by "Diepoldus filius fratris eiusdem comitis…"[796].  "Comes Otto de Chirberg, Teobaldus comes de Lechesgemunde, Ludewicus comes de Helphenstein, Degehardus de Helonstein, Diemo et Godefridus frater eius de Gundelfingen…" witnessed the charter dated 1 May 1171 under which Emperor Friedrich I confirmed property of Kloster Herbrechtingen[797]m AGATHA [798][von Teck, daughter of ADALBERT I Herzog von Teck [Zähringen] & his wife ---] (-after 1192, bur Kaisheim).  The primary source which confirms her parentage and marriage has not yet been identified.  ducissa Deccensis 1188.  Widow in 1192.  The necrology of Kaisheim "Kal Jul" names "Diepoldi comitis et Agathæ de Lechsgemündt"[799].  Graf Diepold & his wife had one child:

2.         HEINRICH [II] (-26 Jan [1208]).  Wegener cites a source dated [1145] which names Volchrad Graf von Lechsgemünd and his brother Heinrich[805]Graf von Lechsgemünd.  Graf von Frontenhausen [1150].  "Comes Heinricus de Frantenhusen" donated property to Bamburg by charter dated to [1165], witnessed by "Diepoldus filius fratris eiusdem comitis…"[806].  von Teisbach, von Mittersill 1167/1194, von Rattenberg.  The necrology of Baumburg records the death "VII Kal Feb" of "Hainricus com de Frantenhausen"[807].  The necrology of Kaisheim records the death "VII Kal Feb" of "Siffridi comitis de Frantenhausen"[808], it being assumed that this is a copyist's error for Heinrich given the previous Baumburg necrology entry and the absence of other references to a Siegfried Graf von Frontenhausen.  m (before [1170]) ADELHEID, daughter of --- (-6 Jan after 1206).  According to Europäische Stammtafeln[809], the wife of Heinrich [II] Graf von Lechsgemünd was Adelheid von Plain, daughter of Liutold I Graf von Plain.  The necrology of Kaisheim records the death "VII Id Jan" of "Adelhaidis com de Mitternsee"[810], which it is assumed refers to a member of the Lechsgemünd family although the reference to "Mitternsee" is unclear.  Graf Heinrich [II] & his wife had three children: 

a)         OTTO .  The primary source which confirms his parentage has not yet been identified.  Wegener cites a source dated [1185] which names "Otto comes de Vrantenhusen"[811], commenting that he could only have been the son of Graf Heinrich [II].

Graf Berthold & his first wife had two children:

ii)         ADELHEID .  A charter dated to [1170] records the donation to Au monastery by "Chuno de Megelingen" for "coniugis sue nec non liberorum suorem…etiam posteritatis sue", with the consent of "Adelheidem et filiam eius Adelheidam et filios ipsius Rudebertum, Pernhardum, Arnoldum, Pertholdum, Sibothonem"[881]m ---. 

iii)        KUNO von Megelingen (-after 1220).  A charter dated to [1180] records the donation to Au monastery by "Adelheidi Cometissa de Megelingen, eiusque filii Chuono maior et Chuono minor uterini fratres" for the soul of "Domine Chuononis"[882].  The reference to "uterini fratres" suggests that they did not share the same father.  If this is correct, the older Kuno must have been born from an earlier marriage of her mother, as her son "Kuno von Megelingen" who is recorded in later charters must have been the son of her husband of the same name.  Graf von Megelingen.  A charter dated 1181 records the presence of "Domino Chunone de Megelingen" at a grant to Au monastery[883].  A charter dated 1210 records a donation by "pia memoria…Cometissa de Meglingen Domina Alhaydis…cum filio suo Chuonone" to the monastery of Au[884].  A charter dated 1220 records the donation to Au monastery by "Dominus Chuno Comes Megelingen"[885]

2.         HEINRICH von Megelingen .  "Heinricus…frater Chonnonis de Megelingen" donated property to the monastery of Au by charter dated to [1125], in the presence of "Advocato Chuonone"[886]

Chapter 19.  GRAFEN von MOOSBURG

 

 

 

BURKHARD [I], son of --- .  Wegener suggests that Burkhard [I] was the son of Graf Bucco, younger brother of Heinrich von Schweinfurt[888].  "Heinricus…Romanorum imperator augustus" granted property "cum ipsis enim aliquando Otto marchio precarium fecit et dedit…in loco Leian inter Montana in comitatu Popponis et in loco Ufchirchin in comitatu Friderici et in loco Ebarhusen in comitatu Burchardi" to Freising Cathedral by charter dated 10 Dec 1055[889]

m ---.  The name of Burkhard's wife is not known. 

Burkhard [I] & his wife had [five] children: 

1.         [BURKHARD [II] (-[1106/13 Feb 1107]).   His parentage is confirmed by the Vita Chuonradi Archiepiscopi which names "Perhtoldo…de Mosburch…fratrem principis Purchardi"[890], and the source cited by Wegener which refers to Archbishop Berthold "filius quondam Purchardi"[891].  However, one potential difficulty is presented by the charter of Emperor Heinrich III dated 12 May 1093 which names "…Burchardi marchionis…Burchardi fratris Burchardi marchionis…"[892].  Although this would not be a unique example of full brothers having the same names, it would be unusual and does suggest a more remote fraternal relationship, maybe uterine brothers.  For this reason both Marchese Burkhard and his brother Burkhard are shown in square brackets in this document.  He succeeded as BURKHARD Marchese di Istria in 1093, until 1101.  Vogt of Aquileia 1101.]   

-        MARCHESI di ISTRIA

2.         BERTHOLD (-[1115]).  The Vita Chuonradi Archiepiscopi names "Perhtoldo…de Mosburch…fratrem principis Purchardi" as son of "avunculus" when recording that he opposed Gebhard Archbishop of Salzburg[893].  Anti-Bishop of Salzburg 1085/90 and 1097/1106.  Wegener refers to Archbishop Berthold "filius quondam Purchardi" granting Schloß Attems in Friulia to his relatives Konrad and Mathilde dated 8 Nov 1106[894]

3.         [BURKHARD [III] von Moosburg (-[11 Jan] after 1133).  "Heinricus…tertius Romanorum imperator augustus" confirmed the donation of property "predio quod nobis dux Heinricus de Carinthia filius domini Marquardi dedit" to Kloster St Gallen at the request of "Odalrici patriarche consanguinei nostri…Dieboldi marchionis, Werinheri marchionis, Burchardi marchionis, Heinrici de Houerdorf, Burchardi fratris Burchardi marchionis, Adelberti de Hortenburc, Emelrici de Bosco" by charter dated 12 May 1093[895].  He is shown in square brackets in this document for the reasons explained under his supposed brother Burkhard [II] Marchese of Istria (see above).  Vogt von St Castulus und von Isen.  The necrology of Salzburg St Rudpert records the death "III Id Jan" of "Burchardus de Mosiburch"[896], which may either refer to Burkhard [III] or [IV].]  m ---.  The name of Burkhard's wife is not known.  Burkhard [III] & his wife had [three] children: 

a)         BURKHARD [IV] von Moosburg (-[11 Jan] [1138]).  Wegener refers to a source which records the appointment of Burchard as Vogt of Aquileia in 1101, witnessed by "Purcardus frater advocati et filius eius Purcardus"[897].  Vogt von St Castulus 1133.  "Engilbertus Hallensium Comes" restored "monasterii Atilensis…in territorio Frisingensi", with the advice of "nobilium Bavarie comitis…Perchtoldi de Andechs, Sifridi Comitis de Hochenburch, Chunonis de Megelingen, Herrandi de Amrangi, Burchardi de Mospurc", by charter dated to [1137] which records its foundation by "quodam Friderico cognomento Roche"[898].  The necrology of Salzburg St Rudpert records the death "III Id Jan" of "Burchardus de Mosiburch"[899], which may either refer to Burkhard [III] or [IV].  m firstly ADELHEID, daughter of --- (-10 Mar before 1120).  The necrology of Salzburg St Rudpert records the death "VI Id Mar" of "Adelheit de Mosiburch"[900], which is assumed to refer to the wife of Burkhard [IV] although this is not without doubt.  According to Wegener, the first wife of Graf Burkhard [IV] was Adelheid, daughter of Udalschalk Graf im Lurngau & his second wife Adelheid of Carniola (after whom she would have been named), basing his theory on their son being named "Uto", which he considers was a shortened form of his maternal grandfather's name[901]m secondly GERTRUD, daughter of --- (-16 Feb [1175]).  "Nobilis femina Gertrud…de Moseburch" donated property to the monastery of Au, with the consent of "filii sui Adalberti", by charter dated to [1125][902].  Wegener suggests that Gertrud was the daughter of Adalbert von Gern, to explain the introduction of the name Adalbert (and possibly Heinrich) into the Moosburg family[903], although this cannot be the only explanation for this name transmission.  "Dominus Purchardus huius ecclesie advocatus" donated property "quam matris sue Gerdrudis…habuit in pago Merningen" to St Castelus, with the consent of "uxoris sue domine Benedicte", by charter dated 17 Sep 1161[904].  The necrology of Salzburg St Rudpert records the death "XIV Kal Mar" of "Gerdrudis de Mosburch"[905].  "Chuonradus Moseburgensis ecclesie advocatus" donated property "predium quoddam Sconembuch" to St Castelus after the death of "avie sue Gertrudis" and for her soul by undated charter[906].  Wegener dates this charter to [1175][907].  Burkhard [IV] & his [first] wife had one child: 

i)          UTO .  Wegener refers to a source dated 1142 naming "Uto et Albertus fratres de Mosaburch"[908], presumably deciding that, if these were sons of Burkhard [IV], Uto must have been born from his first marriage because of the similarity to the name Udalschalk. 

Burkhard [IV] & his second wife had [three] children: 

ii)         ADALBERT [I] von Moosburg (-3 Nov [1147]).  "Nobilis femina Gertrud…de Moseburch" donated property to the monastery of Au, with the consent of "filii sui Adalberti", by charter dated to [1125][909].  "…Adalpreht de Mosepurch…" witnessed a charter dated to [1130] donating property to the monastery of Au[910].  Vogt von St Castulus [1145]. 

iii)        BURKHARD [V] von Moosburg (-killed in battle near Milan 11 May 1162).  Wegener refers to a source dated Feb 1147 which names "Albertus de Moosburg et frater eius Burchart"[911].  Vogt von St Castulus 1148. 

-         see below

iv)       [HEINRICH (-[8 Apr] ----).  The necrology of Salzburg St Rudpert records the death "VI Id Apr" of "Heinricus de Mosburch"[912], Wegener suggesting that he was the son of Gertrud[913].] 

b)         [KONRAD (-[1135]).  Wegener refers to the donation dated [1135] by "der Edle Purchard" to Ebersberg for the burial of his brother Chonrad[914].] 

c)         [HEILIKA .  The primary source which confirms her parentage and marriage has not yet been identified.  m ULRICH [I] von Biburg und Stein . 

4.         MATHILDE .  The primary source which confirms her parentage and marriage has not yet been identified.  m EBERHARD [I] von Ratzenhofen [Abensberg]. 

5.         [daughter .  Wegener refers to the donation dated [1135] by Dietpold von Kager to Kloster Au am Inn, witnessed by "Purchart de Mosipurch, Kuno de Rihpoldisperga"[915], suggesting that this indicates that Diepold's mother was closely related to the Moosburg family and was maybe the daughter of Berthold [I].  m --- von Kager .] 

 

 

BURKHARD [V] von Moosburg, son of BURKHARD [IV] von Moosburg & his second wife Gertrud --- (-killed in battle near Milan 11 Feb 1162).  Wegener refers to a source dated Feb 1147 which names "Albertus de Moosburg et frater eius Burchart"[916].  Vogt von St Castulus 1148.  "Dominus Purchardus huius ecclesie advocatus" donated property "quam matris sue Gerdrudis…habuit in pago Merningen" to St Castelus, with the consent of "uxoris sue domine Benedicte", by charter dated 17 Sep 1161[917].  The necrology of Salzburg St Rudpert records the death "III Id Feb" of "Burchardus de Mosiburch"[918].

m (before 17 Sep 1161) as her first husband, BENEDIKTA von Roning, daughter of KONRAD Graf von Roning & his wife --- (-[11 Aug] [1205]).  "Dominus Purchardus huius ecclesie advocatus" donated property "quam matris sue Gerdrudis…habuit in pago Merningen" to St Castelus, with the consent of "uxoris sue domine Benedicte", by charter dated 17 Sep 1161[919].  The primary source which confirms her parentage and two marriages has not yet been identified.  She married secondly Ulrich [von Lutzmann] Stein (-[1186/89]).  The Liber Anniversariorum of Moosburg records the death "III Id Aug" of "Benedicta com" and his donation of property "in Steyg"[920], although it is not certain that this refers to the wife of Graf Burkhard [V]. 

Burkhard [V] & his wife had one child: 

1.         KONRAD [II] von Moosburg (-31 Mar [1218]).  "Chuonradus Moseburgensis ecclesie advocatus" donated property "predium quoddam Sconembuch" to St Castelus after the death of "avie sue Gertrudis" and for her soul by undated charter[921].  Wegener dates this charter to [1175][922]Graf von Moosburg 1179.  Vogt von St Castulus.  The Liber Anniversariorum of Moosburg records the death "II Kal Apr" of "Chunradus comes advocatus noster" and his donation of property "in Altham"[923]m firstly BENEDIKTA, daughter of --- (-2 Jun ----).  "Comitis et advocati nostri Chunradi" donated property "predium…in loco..:Stige" to St Castelus, for the soul of "uxoris sue domine et comitisse Benedicte" and to found an anniversary for her, by charter dated [1207][924].  The Liber Anniversariorum of Moosburg records the death "IV Non Jun" of "Benedicta coma"[925]m secondly HEDWIG [von Moosen, daughter of BERNHARD [III] von Moosen] (-4 Jul ----).  "Chuonrat de Mosburc et advocatus huius ecclesie" donated property "in loco…Lohern" to St Castelus, for the soul of "uxoris sue Haduwigis comitisse" by undated charter[926].  Wegener dates this charter to [1215][927].  The primary source which confirms her parentage has not yet been identified.  The Liber Anniversariorum of Moosburg records the death "IV Non Jul" of "Haytwigis coma"[928].  Graf Konrad [II] & his first wife had [four] children: 

a)         KONRAD [III] (-[1 Dec] after 1245).  The primary source which confirms his parentage has not yet been identified.  Graf von Moosburg 1219.  The Liber Anniversariorum of Moosburg records the death "Kal Dec" of "Chunradus comes advocatus noster" and his donation of property "in Erelpach"[929].  Although it is not certain to which Graf Konrad this entry refers, it is likely that the death of Graf Konrad [III] is recorded in the necrology as both his father and his supposed descendants are recorded there.  m ---.  The name of Konrad's wife is not known.  Graf Konrad [III] & his wife had [three] children: 

i)          [ALBERT [II] (-15 Apr 1260).  The primary source which confirms his parentage has not yet been identified.  Graf von Moosburg 1249.  The Liber Anniversariorum of Moosburg records the death "XVII Kal Mai 1260" of "Alb comes advocatus noster"[930].  The necrology of Seligenthal records the death "XVII Kal Mai" of "Albertus com de Mosburch"[931]m [MATHILDE, daughter of --- (-30 Oct ----).  The necrology of Seligenthal records the death "III Kal Nov" of "Machtild von Mooburch"[932].  This has not been linked to any other Gräfin von Moosburg and may refer to the wife of Graf Albert [II].]  Graf Albert [II] & his wife had one child: 

(a)       KONRAD [V] (-19 Aug 1281).  The primary source which confirms his parentage has not yet been identified.  Graf von Moosburg 1279.  The Liber Anniversariorum of Moosburg records the death "XIV Kal Sep 1281" of "Ch comes Mospurgensis iunior et ultimus"[933]m as her first husband, SOPHIA von Wangen, daughter of BERAL von Wangen & his wife --- (-6 or 12 Sep after 1325).  She married secondly Hartmann [VI] Graf von Kirchberg und Brandenburg (-before 1308).  The primary source which confirms her parentage and second marriage has not yet been identified.  The Liber Anniversariorum of Moosburg records the death "VI Id Sep" of "Sophya com de Mospurge" and her donation of property "in Pachorn"[934].  The necrology of Seligenthal records the death "II Id Sep" of "domina Sophia coma de Mospurch"[935].  If her second marriage is correct, it is surprising that Sophie should be referred to by the title from her first husband in both these entries. 

ii)         [KONRAD [IV] (-[3 Feb] before 29 Jan 1280).  Graf von Moosburg 1249.  Canon at Regensburg Cathedral before 1257, resigned.  Graf von Rottenburg 1257.  The necrology of Seligenthal records the death "III Non Feb" of "Chunradus com de Mosburch"[936].  This entry has not been linked to another Graf von Moosburg and may refer to Graf Konrad [IV].]

d)         [GERTRUD (-[13 Jul or 25 Aug] ----).  The primary source which confirms her parentage and marriage has not yet been identified.  Her parentage may speculative, based on the transmission of the names Konrad and Burkhard to her sons, although this is presumably not the only family connection which would explain this.  The necrology of Benedictbeuern records the deaths "Jul III Id" and "VIII Kal Sep" of "Gertrudis com de Eschenloch"[939]m as his third wife, BERTHOLD [III] Graf von Eschenlohe, son of BERTHOLD [II] von Eschenlohe & his wife Heilwig [von Leuchtenberg] (-24 Apr [1260]).] 

 

 

 

 

Chapter 20.  MARKGRAFEN im NORDGAU

 

 

A.      MARKGRAFEN auf dem BAYERISCHEN NORDGAU, MARKGRAFEN von SCHWEINFURT

 

 

The "Bayerischen Nordgau" was located around Nürnberg, Bamberg and the adjacent area along the river Main.  The territory formed part of the duchy of Bavaria until the death of Duke Arnulf in 937.  In 938, Emperor Otto I placed it in the hands of Berthold, administrator of the east Franconian districts of Radenzgau and Volkfeld, Schmeidler asserting that it is incorrect that the Nordgau was first separated from Bavaria in 976 in consequence of the revolt of Heinrich "the Wrangler" Duke of Bavaria[940].  It appears chronologically unlikely that this was the same person as Berthold who died in 980.  The Markgrafschaft was a relatively short-lived creation.  After the rebellion of Heinrich von Schweinfurt, Heinrich II King of Germany installed the bishopric of Bamberg as the controlling influence in the area.  However, the title "Markgraf" survived the political change and was retained by the head of this family and its successors, as was the case with other titles in Germany in the middle medieval period, notably that of the dukes of Zähringen in Swabia in the late 11th century after their loss of the duchy of Swabia. 

 

 

1.         BERTHOLD (-after 938).  In 938, Emperor Otto I placed the "bayerischer Nordgau" in the hands of Berthold, administrator of the east Franconian districts of Radenzgau and Volkfeld[941].  It appears chronologically unlikely that this was the same person as Berthold who died in 980, shown below. 

 

 

BERTHOLD, son of --- (-15 Jan 980).  According to Wegener[942], Berthold was the son of Arnulf Duke of Bavaria [Luitpoldinger] although he cites no primary source to support this.  From a chronological point of view, this seems unlikely.  The children of Duke Arnulf must have been born between [910] and [930], which appears incompatible with Markgraf Berthold's only known marriage in [970].  According to Europäische Stammtafeln[943], Berthold was the possible son of Graf Heinrich [alte Babenberger] and brother of Heinrich Archbishop of Trier.  Graf im Radenzgau 960: "Otto…rex" donated property "in pago Ratinzgouue in comitatu Berchtoldi" held by "Diotmarus…soror ipsius…Gerbirg" to Kloster Drübeck by charter dated 10 Sep 960[944].  Graf an der unteren Naab 961.  Graf im Nordgau 961: "Otto…rex" donated property "hereditatis nobilis vir Diotmar…in loco Priemperch…in pago Nortgouue in comitatu Bertoldi comitis" to Regensburg St Emmeram by charter dated 4 Feb 961[945].  "Otto…imperator augustus" granted property "Emmele et Winteriche in pago Muselgowe in comitatu Bertholdi comitis" to Kloster St Maximin, Trier by charter dated 8 Jan 966[946].  Graf im Volkfeld 973.  Markgraf 976.  Graf des Ostlichen Franken 980.  The necrology of Fulda records the death in 980 of "Berahtolt com"[947]

m ([970]) EILIKA [Eiliswintha or Eila] von Walbeck, daughter of LOTHAR [II] Graf von Walbeck [Nordmark] & his wife Mathilde von Arneburg (-19 Aug 1015).  The Annalista Saxo records that "Eila" daughter of "Lotharius comes senior de Walbike" married "Bertoldus comes", their son being named Heinrich[948].  She built the Münster at Schweinfurt.  During her son's rebellion in 1003, she secured favourable treatment during the siege of her castle by threatening to take refuge inside the church and let herself be burned alive there[949].  The death of "Eila filia Lotarii de Waldbike, mater Heinrici marchionis" is recorded in the Annalista Saxo on "XIV Kal Sep", which specifies that she was buried in Kloster Schweinfurt which she had founded[950].  Thietmar records the death of "Countess Eila" on 19 Aug and her burial in the monastery which she had constructed[951]

Markgraf Berthold & his wife had [three] children: 

1.         HEINRICH von Schweinfurt ([970/75]-18 Sep 1017, bur Schweinfurt).  His parentage is specified in the Annalista Saxo[952].  His birth date range is based on his parents' estimated marriage date.  Graf an der unteren Naab 981.  Graf an der unteren Altmühl 983.  Markgraf auf dem bayerischen Nordgau 994.  Graf im Radenzgau 1002.  He rebelled against Heinrich II King of Germany in 1003 on the grounds that he had not been granted the duchy of Bavaria as promised and allied himself with Bohemia and Poland.  His rebellion was crushed and King Heinrich set up the bishopric of Bamberg to provide central control in the area in place of the margravate of bayerischen Nordgau[953].  Graf an der Pegnitz 1009 and 1011.  Graf an der oberen Naab 1015.  Thietmar records the death 18 Sep 1017 of "Markgraf Heinrich my aunt's son and the glory of eastern Franconia"[954]m (before 1003) GERBERGA [von Hammerstein], daughter of HERIBERT Pfalzgraf Graf im Kinziggau & his wife Imiza --- ([975/80]-after 1036).  Thietmar names "Ottone germano sui", referring to Gerberga wife of Heinrich von Schweinfurt, whose captivity is recorded in the preceding paragraph, an earlier paragraph referring to "Heriberti comitis filio Ottone" which appears to refer to the same Otto[955].  An alternative possibility is that Gerberga was the daughter of Otto Graf von Grabfeld, the solution chosen by Europäische Stammtafeln[956], but this assumes that the two references to "Otto" in Thietmar were to different individuals.  It is also less likely chronologically as it would appear that Otto Graf von Grabfeld was several decades older than Otto Graf von Hammerstein.  Her birth date range is estimated on the basis of her daughter Eilika having given birth to her first child in [1020].  Thietmar states that Gerberga and her children were guarded by her husband's brother Bukko during their rebellion against Heinrich II King of Germany in 1003[957].  Markgraf Heinrich & his wife had [five] children: 

a)         OTTO von Schweinfurt (-28 Sep 1057, bur Schweinfurt).  The Annalista Saxo names "Otto marchio de Suinvorde" as son of "marchionis Heinrici et Gerberge marchionisse", when recording his appointment as Duke of Swabia[958].  Graf an der unteren Altmühl 1014.  Markgraf auf dem Nordgau 1024-1031.  Graf an der unteren Naab 1034.  Graf an der oberen Naab 1040.  He succeeded in 1048 as OTTO Duke of Swabia

-        see below

b)         EILIKA ([1000/05][959]-10 Dec after [1055/56]).  The Annalista Saxo names "Eilica…filia marchionis Heinrici de Suinvorde" as wife of "Bernhardus iunior"[960].  The necrology of Lüneburg records the death "10 Dec" of "Eila ducissa"[961]m ([1020]) BERNHARD II Duke in Saxony, son of BERNHARD I Duke in Saxony [Billung] & his wife Hildegard von Stade (after 990-29 Jun 1059, bur Lüneburg St Michael). 

c)         JUDITH (-2 Aug 1058, bur [1061 or after] Prague St Veit).  The Annalista Saxo names "Iudhitam, sororem Ottonis de Suinvorde, filiam…marchionis Heinrici" when recording that she was kidnapped by her future husband from the monastery of St Peter and St Paul "super montem Hasunkun"[962].  In a later passage, her death is recorded "IV Non Aug" as well as her later burial in Prague by her son Vratislav.  The same source also specifies that she had been expelled from Bohemia by her son Duke Spytihnĕv and married "Petri regi Ungariorum" to spite him[963].  The Chronica Boemorum records the death "1058 IV Non Aug" of "Iudita coniunx Bracizlavi, ductrix Boemorum", specifying that she had been expelled from Bohemia by her son "Spitigneus", that to spite her son she had married "Petro regi Ungarorum", and that her son Wratizlas had brought back her body to be buried next to her husband in Prague[964].  The marriage is not mentioned in Wegener, although he refers cryptically to "Lui von Frizberg, I. Tuta Regina. II. Judith von Schweinfurt"[965].   m [firstly] (after 1021) BŘETISLAW of Bohemia, illegitimate son of OLDRICH Duke of the Bohemians & his mistress --- (-Chrudim 10 Jan 1055, bur Prague St Veit).  He succeeded in 1034 as BŘETISLAW I Duke of Bohemia.  [m secondly ([1055]) as his second wife, PÉTER Orseolo King of Hungary, son of PIETRO OTTONE Orseolo Doge of Venice & his wife Maria [Grimelda] of Hungary ([Venice] [1010/15]- Székesfehérvár late 1046[966], bur Pécs, St Peter's Cathedral).  As referred to above, this marriage is mentioned in the Annalista Saxo but is impossible assuming King Péter's death date is correct.]      

d)         [BURKHARD (-18 Oct 1059).  The Gesta Episcoporum Halberstadensium records the appointment of "Borchardus, carnis progenie nobilis…ex altissimo Bawarie principum sanguine originem ducens" as Bishop of Halberstadt in 1036[967].  The same source specifies that he was born "in loco qui Napburch dicitur".  Wegener assumes that he was the son of Markgraf Heinrich as this town was located in the Markgrafschaft der Nordgau but provides no other justification for this affiliation[968].  Chancellor of Emperor Konrad II.  Bishop of Halberstadt 1036.] 

e)         [HEINRICH (-after 1043).  Wegener argues that Heinrich was the son of Markgraf Heinrich as his county lay in the Markgrafschaft der Nordgau but he does not identify any specific source on which he bases this information[969].  Graf an der Pegnitz 1021/43.  "Heinricus…rex" confirmed rights in "abbatiam Bargi in pago Nortgouue in comitatu Henrici comitis" to the church of Ba mberg by charter dated 12 Jan 1025[970].]

OTTO von Schweinfurt, son of HEINRICH Graf von Schweinfurt Markgraf auf dem Bayerischen Nordgau & his wife Gerberga [von Hammerstein] (-28 Sep 1057, bur Schweinfurt).  The Annalista Saxo names "Otto marchio de Suinvorde" as son of "marchionis Heinrici et Gerberge marchionisse", when recording his appointment as Duke of Swabia[973].  Graf an der unteren Altmühl 1014.  Markgraf auf dem Nordgau 1024-1031.  Graf an der unteren Naab 1034.  Graf an der oberen Naab 1040.  He succeeded in 1048 as OTTO Duke of Swabia.  The Annalista Saxo records the death of "Otto de Suinvorde dux Suevorum" on "IV Kal Oct" and his burial in Schweinfurt[974]

[975]Betrothed (18 May 1035, contract broken 1036) MATYLDA of Poland, daughter of BOŁESLAW I "Chrobry/the Brave" King of Poland & his [fourth/fifth] wife Oda von Meissen (-[1036]).  This betrothal was broken by the council of Tribur in 1036, presumably on the grounds of consanguinity[976].  The Annalista Saxo records the end of the betrothal with "Machtildem" but does not give her origin[977]

m (1036) as her first husband, IRMGARD [Aemilia/Immula] di Susa, daughter of MANFREDO UDALRICO Marchese di Susa and Turin & his wife Berta degli Obertenghi (-1078 before 29 Apr).  The Annalista Saxo names "Emilias vel Immula seu Irmingardis" as wife of Otto von Schweinfurt and sister of "Adelas [uxor] Ottoni marchioni de Italia"[978].  She married secondly (1058) Ekbert I Graf von Braunschweig Markgraf von Meissen (-11 Jan 1068), although the primary source which confirms this second marriage has not yet been identified. 

Markgraf Otto & his wife had [six] children: 

1.         JUDITH (-[1 Mar 1104]).  The Annalista Saxo names (in order) "Eilica, Iudhita, Beatrix, Gisla, Berta" as the five daughters of Otto von Schweinfurt and Immula, and names both Judith's husbands[979]m firstly KUNO [Konrad], son of LUDOLF Vogt von Brauweiler [Ezzonen] & his wife (-Hungary [15 Dec] 1055, bur Köln St Maria ad gradus).  He succeeded in 1049 as KUNO Duke of Bavaria, deposed 1053.  m secondly (1056) BOTHO Graf von Botenstein, son of HARTWIG [II] Pfalzgrafen von Bayern [Aribonen] & his wife Friderun [Immedinger] (before Dec 1024-1 Mar 1104). 

2.         BEATRIX (-Wadderoth 17 Jun 1102).  The Annalista Saxo names (in order) "Eilica, Iudhita, Beatrix, Gisla, Berta" as the five daughters of Otto von Schweinfurt and Immula, referring to Beatrix's husband as "marchioni" without naming him[980].  Heiress of Schweinfurt.  The Gesta Archiepiscoporum Magdeburgensium records the death "1102 XV Kal Iul" at "Wadderoth" of "Beatrice, filia Ottonis ducis Suevorum"[981]m HEINRICH Graf von Hildrizhausen, son of --- (-1078).  He became Markgraf auf dem Nordgau after the death of his father-in-law.  1054/89.  "Heinricus…rex" granted property "in comitatu Heinrici comitis in pago Nordgove et in marchia Napvrg" to "nostro servineti Otnant" by charter dated 13 Feb 1061[982].  "Heinricus…rex" granted property "in pago Nortgowe comitatu vero Heinrici" to the church of Bamberg by charter dated 27 Oct 1069[983].  The Bernoldi Chronicon records the death in 1078 of "Heinricus marchio"[984].  Graf Heinrich & his wife had two children: 

a)         EBERHARD (-1112).  The primary source which confirms his parentage has not yet been identified.  Bishop of Eichstätt 1099.  Wegener says that Eberhard transferred the Markgrafschaft auf dem Nordgau to the bishopric of Eichstätt[985]

b)         BEATRIX .  The Annalista Saxo refers to the unnamed daughter of Beatrix von Schweinfurt and her husband as the wife of "Godefridus de Cappenberch", and mother of "duos filios Gotefridum et Ottonem"[986].  The Vita Godefridi comitis Capenbergensis names "pater eius Godefridus, mater Beatrix" parents of Gottfried Graf von Cappenberg[987].  The Vita Godefridi comitis Capenbergensis names "Heinricum comitem de Ryetbeke" second husband of Beatrix after the death of "Godefrido"[988]m firstly GOTTFRIED Graf von Cappenberg, son of HERMANN Graf [von Cappenberg] & his wife Gerberga von Huneburg (-killed in battle 1106).  m secondly HEINRICH Graf von Rietberg, son of KONRAD Graf von Werl[-Arnsberg] & his wife Mathilde von Northeim (-[1115/18]).   

3.         GISELA (-before [1096]).  The Annalista Saxo names (in order) "Eilica, Iudhita, Beatrix, Gisla, Berta" as the five daughters of Otto von Schweinfurt and Immula, naming Gisela's husband as "Wigmanno comiti de Seburch"[989]Europäische Stammtafeln[990] co-identifies Gisela, wife of Arnold Graf von Diessen, with Gisela daughter of Markgraf Otto.  Wegener further complicates the picture by suggesting that Gisela, daughter of Markgraf Otto, married as her first husband Berthold [II] Graf von Andechs[991], although this contradicts an entry recording the death of Gisela "uxor comitis Arnoldi" in the Diessen necrology[992].  He cites the Kastler Reimchronik of [1323/24] according to which "Sophie, daughter of Graf Otto" married a Graf von Andechs[993].  As this is the only reference to Otto Markgraf von Schweinfurt having a daughter named Sophie, Wegener identifies her with Otto's daughter Gisela, in an apparent attempt to make the facts fit his theory.  Presumably the compiler of Europäische Stammtafeln adopted the same solution without too much enquiry into the background.  There is no reason to suppose that the Annalista Saxo would have failed to mention such a first marriage if it had existed.  In addition, the description of Gisela, wife of Arnold, as "uxor comitis Arnoldi" in the Diessen necrology suggests that she predeceased Arnold, or at least that Arnold had been her only or last husband.  In any case, if this Gisela had left Bavaria for Saxony for a second marriage it is less likely that her death would have been recorded at Diessen at all.  There is also a strong chronological argument against any supposed first marriage of Gisela von Schweinfurt.  Arnold Graf von Diessen died after 1091.  This raises the unlikely prospect that Wichmann Graf von Seeberg married, as his first wife, a widow probably in her late 30s/early 40s with limited prospects of further child-bearing.  The case against Graf Berthold [II] as her first husband is conclusive as Graf Berthold died in [1100] or after whereas Graf Wichmann married his second wife (presumably after the death of Gisela) in [1096].  m [secondly] as his first wife, WICHMANN Graf von Seeburg, son of Graf CRISTIN & his wife Oda von Haldensleben (-[1115]).

4.         ALBERADA BERTHA (-11 Jan [1103]).  The Annalista Saxo names (in order) "Eilica, Iudhita, Beatrix, Gisla, Berta" as the five daughters of Otto von Schweinfurt and Immula, referring to Berta's husband as "quidam de principus Bawariorum, qui agnominatus fuit de municione sua Havekesberh dicta"[994].  The Fundatio Monasterii Banzensis names "marchio Hermannus…uxorem Alberadam" as founders of the monastery of Banz in [1071], and their two children "Heinricum, Ottonem"[995].  The primary source which confirms her second marriage has not yet been identified.  m firstly (before 7 Jul 1069) HERMANN [II] Graf von Kastl Markgraf von Banz, son of HERMANN [I] Graf von Kastl & his wife Haziga von Diessen .  1069/71.  m secondly her brother-in-law, FRIEDRICH Graf von Kastl, son of HERMANN [I] Graf von Kastl & his wife Haziga von Diessen (-11 Nov 1103, bur Kastl).   

5.         EILIKA (-5 Jul ----).  The Annalista Saxo names (in order) "Eilica, Iudhita, Beatrix, Gisla, Berta" as the five daughters of Otto von Schweinfurt and Immula, specifying that Eilika was an abbess[996].  Abbess of Niedermünster at Regensburg.  The necrology of Regensburg St Emmeram records the death "III Non Jul" of "Heilika abbatissa"[997].  The necrology of Weltenburg records the death "III Non Jul" of "Eilika abbatissa de inferiori monasterio"[998]

6.         [SOPHIE .  Wegener refers to the Kastler Reimchronik of [1323/24] according to which Sophie, daughter of Graf Otto, married a Graf von Andechs[999].  This appears to be the only reference to Graf Otto having a daughter of this name.  Wegener uses this as part of the justification for his theory concerning the Schweinfurt origin of Gisela, whom he identifies as the wife of Berthold [II] Graf von Andechs.  The difficulties with this co-identification have been fully explored above.  However, the reference to the Kastler Reimchronik still needs to be explained.  The author has insufficient knowledge about the Reimchronik to be able to comment on its reliability as a source.  However, if the reference is correct, a convenient explanation would be that Sophie was the wife of Graf Berthold [II].  m BERTHOLD Graf von Andechs, son of --- (-[1100] or after).] 

 

 

 

B.      MARKGRAFEN im NORDGAU (RATPOTONEN)

 

 

The date of Graf Diepold [II]'s installation as Markgraf is not known, but it likely took place in or soon after 1048 when Markgraf Otto von Schweinfurt was installed as duke of Swabia.  The reason for the choice of successor as Markgraf is not clear either.  After the death of Markgraf Dietpold [III], the Markgrafschaft was reintegrated into the duchy Bavaria, although his sons continued to use the title Markgraf which they applied to the family's territories of Vohburg und Cham in Bavaria. 

 

 

DIEPOLD [II] von Cham, son of DIETPOLD [I] Graf [von Cham] [Ratpotonen] & his wife --- (-killed in battle Mellrichstadt 7 Aug 1078).  The primary source which confirms his parentage has not yet been identified.  von Giengen.  Markgraf im Nordgau.  "Heinricus…rex" granted "comitatum Histrie" and "marchiam Carniole" to the church of Aquileia at the request of "ducibus autem Writizlao Boemie ac Liudolfo Carintie, Cuonone quoque palatino comite et Tieboldo marchione" by two charters dated 11 Jun 1077[1000]

m as her first husband, LIUTGARDE von Zähringen, daughter of BERTHOLD I Duke of Carinthia, Herzog von Zähringen & his first wife Richwara of Swabia (-18 Mar [1119]).  The Tabula consanguinitatis Friderici I regis et Adelæ reginæ (which provided the basis for their divorce) names "Liutgardim" as daughter of "Bertolfum cum Barba" and mother of "marchionem Theobaldum"[1001].  The Fundatio Monasterii Richenbacensis names "Lukardis" as mother of "marchio Dietpaldus" in connection with the foundation of Reichenbach[1002].  She married secondly Ernst von Grögling Graf von Ottenburg.  The necrology of the Obermünster, Regensburg records the death "XV Kal Mar" of "Liutkard marchiocoma"[1003].  The necrology of Augsburg St Ulrich records the death "XV Kal Mar" of "Liutgart marchionissa"[1004]

Markgraf Diepold [II] & his wife had [four] children: 

1.         DIEPOLD [III] (-8 Apr 1146).  The Tabula consanguinitatis Friderici I regis et Adelæ reginæ (which provided the basis for their divorce) names "Liutgardim" as daughter of "Bertolfum cum Barba" and mother of "marchionem Theobaldum"[1005]Markgraf von Nabburg 1118.  He founded Kloster Reichenbach in 1119.  Markgraf von Vohburg [1120].  He founded the Cistercian monastery of Waldsassen in 1133.  Vogt von St Paul, Regensburg.  Markgraf von Cham 1144. 

-        MARKGRAFEN von VOHBURG

2.         KONRAD .  [1110].  Wegener refers to a source dated [1110] which names "Chounradus frater marchionis Dipoldi" suggesting that he may have been illegitimate[1006]

3.         [ADELHEID von Mochental (-1 Dec [1125]).  The primary source which confirms her parentage has not yet been identified.  She became a nun.  The necrology of Zwiefalten records the death "Kal Dec" of "Adelheit com de Mochintal et c v, mater Salome ducisse"[1007].  It appears unusual to refer to a deceased noble lady by her unmarried title.  There must be a question whether "von Mochental" was the name of a second husband.  m HEINRICH I Graf [von Berg], son of POPPO Graf & his wife Sophie --- (-Zwiefalten 24 Sep before 1116, bur Zwiefalten).] 

4.         HEDWIG .  The Vita Chuonradi Archiepiscopi records that "Chuonradus…frater…comitum Ottonis et Wolframmi, quorum alter sine liberis mortuus est, alter comitem Rapotonem de Abinperch, advocatum Babenbergensis episcopatus, ex sorore marchionis Dietpaldi heredem reliquit"[1008].  Wegener suggests that Hedwig may alternatively have been a daughter of Ratpoto [IV] Graf von Cham, but he does not explain his reasoning[1009]m WOLFRAM [II] Graf von Abenberg

B.      BURGGRAFEN von NÜRNBERG (ZOLLERN)

 

 

KONRAD [I] von Zollern, son of FRIEDRICH I Burggraf von Nürnberg & his wife Sophie von Raabs (-[24 Aug 1260/10 Mar 1261]).  Graf von Zollern.  KONRAD I Burggraf von Nürnberg 1208.  Emperor Otto IV confirmed the donation made by "Cunradus comes de Zolre qui et Burggravius de Nurenberg" to the church of Speyer by charter dated 29 Aug 1210[1015].  Heinrich VII King of Germany confirmed the donation of a mill at Nürnberg to the Teutonic Order made by "Conradus Burcgravius de Nuernberg" by charter dated 30 Aug 1234[1016].  Emperor Friedrich II confirmed the sale of "castrum Virnespurc" made by "Gotfrido de Hohenloch" to "Cunradus burgravius de Nurenberc" as compensation for damage to "Ludewico de Virnesperc", by charter dated Sep 1235[1017].  "…Conradus burgravius de Norenberch senior et junior burgravius filius filius suus…" witnessed the charter dated Dec 1243 under which Konrad King of Germany confirmed the donation to the Teutonic Order made by his father Emperor Friedrich II[1018].  "C burgravius senior de Nurenberch" confirmed a sale of property made by "quandam ministerialem nostram Adelheidem…de Aspach" by charter dated 20 Mar 1246 witnessed by "Fridericus junior Burgravius…"[1019].  "Corraudus burgravii de Nuremberch et Fredericus filius eius" granted their rights "in comitatu Burgundie…et in regno Francie excepta advocatia Bisuntina", received from "Elisabeth uxore nostra sorore Ottonis quondam ducis Meranie", when agreeing the marriage of "Alis nata nostra burgravii iunioris" and "Johanne nato nobilis viri Johannis comitis Burgundie et domini Salinensis", by charter dated 3 Jul 1255[1020].  "Conradus senior et Conradus junior Burgravii de Nurenberc" bought rights in "in castro Firnsperc…et in villis Egenhusen, Eben et in Tagsteten" from "dominus Albertus et dominus Ludewicus fratres de Uffenheim", the purchase price being paid by "Fr[idericus] Burgravius et Fr[idericus] de Truhendingen", with the consent of "soror…dictorum fratrum domina Adelheidis matrona in Ahalmingen", by charter dated 16 Oct 1259, witnessed by "Friderici iunioris Burgravii, Friderici de Truhendingen…Alberti de Hohenloch…"[1021]

m [firstly] ---.  The name of Konrad´s [first] wife is not known.  The wide difference in the probable birth dates of Konrad´s children suggests that they were born from two different marriages. 

m [secondly] ---.  The name of Konrad´s [second] wife is not known.  The wide difference in the probable birth dates of Konrad´s children suggests that they were born from two different marriages. 

Konrad I & his [first] wife had [four] children: 

1.         ELISABETH (-14 Nov 1255).  Her parentage and marriage are indicated by the charter dated 2 Jun 1284 under which her son "Fridericus Lantgravius de Lukenberch" granted "feoda nostra…Manlehen…circa Nappurch…exceptis duobus castris Werdenberch et Bliestein" to "Fridericio Burcgravio de Nurenberch avunculo nostro"[1022], although the term "avunculus" is used loosely in this document.  The primary source which confirms her parentage and marriage more precisely has not yet been identified.   m GERHARD [III] Landgraf von Leuchtenberg, son of DIEPOLD [I] Landgraf von Leuchtenberg & his wife --- (-before 7 Apr 1244). 

2.         [[AGNES] (-[18 Feb 1251/10 Mar 1263]).  Her supposed parentage and marriage are indicated by the charter dated 1262 under which her son "Bertholdus…Babenbergensis ecclesie episcopus" conferred property of "avunculus noster Ch. Burgravius de Nurenberch" on "avunculus noster Fridericus Burgravius de Nurenberch"[1023].  This conclusion assumes that "avunculus" should be interpreted in this document in its strict sense of maternal uncle.  Another possibility is that it indicates a more remote relationship of cousin.  In view of the date of death of her husband, and the fact that she gave birth to at least two children, it is likely that this possible daughter was one of her father´s older children.  The likelihood of Graf´s Friedrich [III]´s second marriage is also indicated by the probable date of birth of his [first] wife, and bearing in mind the chronology of the careers of his younger children.  A charter dated 18 Feb 1251 records a dispute between Otterberg and "Heinricus…Spirensis electus, E--- comes de Liningen et --- relicta quondam Friderici comitis de Liningen" concerning property "apud Bockenheim"[1024].  Brinckmeier quotes a charter of "Emichs IV und Friedrichs III" dated 10 Mar 1263 which refers to "post obitum nobilis domine Agnetis comitisse"[1025]m [as his second wife,] FRIEDRICH [III] Graf von Leiningen, son of SIMON [II] Graf von Saarbrücken & his wife Luitgard von Leiningen (-1237).] 

3.         FRIEDRICH (-14 Aug 1297).  The various documents under which Berthold von Leiningen Bishop of Bamberg, son of Friedrich´s supposed sister, appointed the daughters of Friedrich as his heirs suggest that the bishop´s supposed mother and Friedrich may have been born from the same marriage of their father.  He succeeded as FRIEDRICH III Burggraf von Nürnberg, jointly with his father from 1243 until his father´s death.  "C burgravius senior de Nurenberch" confirmed a sale of property made by "quandam ministerialem nostram Adelheidem…de Aspach" by charter dated 20 Mar 1246 witnessed by "Fridericus junior Burgravius…"[1026]

-        see below

4.         ADELHEID (-19 Oct 1304, bur Nürnberg Barfüsserkloster).  Her parentage and marriage are confirmed by the charter dated 1254 under which "Alhaidis relicta quondam Comitis Palatini Bawarie Rapotonis et filia nostra Elizabet" donated property to Raitenhaslach, with the consent of "fratris nostri Friderici iunioris Burgravii de Nuernberch"[1027].  "Fridericus Burgravius de Nurenberg" exchanged property with the bishop of Eichstätt, with the consent of "domine Elizabeth uxori nostre et Adelhaidi sorori nostre relicte Palatini Comitis de Ortenberch", by charter dated 8 Dec 1265[1028].  The linking of Friedrich´s sister in this document suggests that she may have had an interest in the property in question and therefore that she and Friedrich may have been born from the same marriage of their father.  "Fridericus Burgravius de Nureberch" freed "villam Wibelsheim", belonging to Kloster Ahusen, from obligations, with the consent of "nostrorum liberorum…Johannis et Friderici", by charter dated 3 Jan 1297, witnessed by "Domine Elene, Burgravie Domine Alheidis Palatine de Creiburch, Domine Anne de Nassawe"[1029]m (before 8 Jul 1241) RAPOTO [III] Graf von Ortenberg Pfalzgraf von Bayern, son of RAPOTO [II] Graf von Ortenberg Pfalzgraf von Bayern & his wife Udilhilde von Dillingen (-4 Jun 1248). 

Konrad I & his [second] wife had two children: 

5.         KONRAD ([1235/45]-6 Jul 1314, bur Spalt St Nikolaus).  The probable age of Konrad´s first wife suggests that he may have been considerably younger than his brother Friedrich, who married before May 1251 as shown above.  It is possible therefore that Konrad was born from a second marriage of his father.  "Conradus senior et Conradus junior Burgravii de Nurenberc" bought rights in "in castro Firnsperc…et in villis Egenhusen, Eben et in Tagsteten" from "dominus Albertus et dominus Ludewicus fratres de Uffenheim", the purchase price being paid by "Fr[idericus] Burgravius et Fr[idericus] de Truhendingen", with the consent of "soror…dictorum fratrum domina Adelheidis matrona in Ahalmingen", by charter dated 16 Oct 1259[1030]KONRAD II Burggraf von Nürnberg.  Leo Bishop of Regensburg granted "forum Spalt…et tres partes civitatis Orengaev" {Oehringen} to "Fridericum Burcravium de Nurenberch…Chunradum Burcravium iuniorem" and "foro Rietvelden" to "filiam ispius Burcravii senioris Elizabetam iuniorem" by charter dated 7 Feb 1272[1031].  "Chunradus burgravius de [Nurnberch]" requested help from "fratri suo Friderico burchgravio de Nurnberch" in repaying a debt to "noster sororius Gotfridus de Hohenloch" by charter dated to [Jan 1280][1032].  Burggraf von Abenberg 1283.  "Burggraf Konrad der jüngere…cum uxore nostra Agnete et…K. et G. de Hohinloch" donated property to Kloster Schäftersheim by charter dated 20 Jun 1288[1033].  The bishops of Regensburg and Eichstätt exchanged property "in Spalt. advocatias villarum" held by "Chunradus Burcgravius de Nurenberch junior" by charter dated 17 Feb 1294[1034].  "Cunrath der Junger Burggrave zu Nurmberg und Fraw Agnes unser Hausfraw" donated "unser Burg zu Viernsperg" to the Teutonic Order by charter dated 16 Jun 1294[1035].  "Cunrat der Burcgrave von Nurenberc und…Agnes die Burcgravin sin vrawe" donated property at Ikelnheim to the Teutonic Knights of Virnsperg by charter dated 1299, witnessed by "…bruder Friderich unser sun Commenture ze Virnsperc…"[1036]m firstly AGNES von Hohenlohe, daughter of ALBRECHT von Hohenlohe zu Uffenheim & his first wife Kunigunde von Henneberg (before 1257-).  Her parentage and marriage are confirmed by the charter dated to [Jan 1280] under which "Chunradus burgravius de [Nurnberch]" requested help from "fratri suo Friderico burchgravio de Nurnberch" in repaying a debt to "noster sororius Gotfridus de Hohenloch"[1037].  The dates of death of her two oldest daughters indicate that she must have been the daughter of her father´s first marriage.  "Burggraf Konrad der jüngere…cum uxore nostra Agnete et…K. et G. de Hohinloch" donated property to Kloster Schäftersheim by charter dated 20 Jun 1288[1038]m secondly ([before 16 Jun 1294]) AGNES von Hirschberg, daughter of GEBHARD [IV] Graf von Hirschberg & his second wife Sophie of Bavaria [Wittelsbach].  "Cunrath der Junger Burggrave zu Nurmberg und Fraw Agnes unser Hausfraw" donated "unser Burg zu Viernsperg" to the Teutonic Order by charter dated 16 Jun 1294[1039].  "Cunrat der Burcgrave von Nurenberc und…Agnes die Burcgravin sin vrawe" donated property at Ikelnheim to the Teutonic Knights of Virnsperg by charter dated 1299, witnessed by "…bruder Friderich unser sun Commenture ze Virnsperc…"[1040].  Konrad II & his first wife had eight children:

a)         daughter (-before 7 Feb 1272). 

b)         daughter (-before 7 Feb 1272). 

c)         FRIEDRICH (-23 Mar 1303).  Knight of the Teutonic Order 1294.  Comtur of the Teutonic Knights at Virnsberg 1296/1303.  "Cunrat der Burcgrave von Nurenberc und…Agnes die Burcgravin sin vrawe" donated property at Ikelnheim to the Teutonic Knights of Virnsperg by charter dated 1299, witnessed by "…bruder Friderich unser sun Commenture ze Virnsperc…"[1041]

Chapter 24.  GRAFEN von PEILSTEIN, MÖRLE und KLEEBERG

 

 

The Grafen von Peilstein were descendants of a younger branch of the Grafen von Ebersberg, the whole family often referred to collectively as the "Sieghardinger" from their frequent use of the first name Sieghard.  The town of Peilstein (also known as Beilenstein or Pilastein), which no longer exists, was located next to St Leonhard am Forst in Lower Austria[1188].  According to the Landbuch von Österreich und Steier [1255], Peilstein was given to Konrad von Tengling by his father-in-law Luitpold II Markgraf of Austria as dowry (see below)[1189].  The family appears to have moved their centre of operations to Franconia, probably in the mid-12th century, following their acquisition of the county of Kleeberg.  This is shown by the possible marriages into the Leiningen and Isenburg families, both of which were Franconian.  It is not known how Kleeberg was acquired but it may have been through the marriage of Graf Konrad [I] into the family of the Grafen von Orlamünde, which although originally Thuringian may have held property in Franconia. 

 

 

KONRAD [I] von Tengling, son of FRIEDRICH [II] Graf von Tengling [Sieghardinger] & his wife [Mathilde von Lechsgemünd] (-15/16/17 Mar [1168]).  The Codex Traditionum of Suben monastery records that "Comes Udalscalchus et coniunx Adalheit" transferred the monastery to "Altmanno suo" witnessed by "Fridericus Comes de Tengilingen et filius eius Chunrat"[1190]Graf von Peilstein [1118].  "Comes Chunradus de Pilstaine", before leaving for Jerusalem, sold property to Admont "cum coniuge sua Adela et cum filiis Friderico, Sigifredo et Chounrado" by charter dated to [1147][1191].  The necrology of Admont records the death "Id Mar" of "Chunradus com et m" and "XVII Kal Apr" of "Chunradus com"[1192].  The necrology of Salzburg St Rudpert records the death "XVI Kal Apr" of "Chonradus com de Pilstein"[1193].  The necrology of Michaelbeuern records the death "XVII Kal Apr" of "Conradus com"[1194]

m firstly EUPHEMIA of Austria, daughter of LUITPOLD II Markgraf of Austria & his wife Ita von Ratelburg (-[1130]).  Wegener quotes the Landbuch von Österreich und Steier [1255] which records that "der marchgrave Liupolt von Osterrich het zwo tochter…den graven Chunrat…gab im der tochter ein, unt gab im zu der tochter Peilstein"[1195].  The primary source which confirms her name has not yet been identified. 

m secondly ADELA von Orlamünde, daughter of SIEGFRIED Graf von Orlamünde [Ballenstedt] & his wife Gertrud von Northeim (-10 Aug [1155]).  "Clementia comitissa de Glizberg cum meis nepotibus Ottone et Wilhelmo" confirmed the foundation of Schiffenberg, with the consent of "domne Gertrudis palatine…[et] Adela filia eiusdem palatine", by charter dated 1141[1196].  "Wilhelmus et Otto comites de Glizperch, consanguinei" confirmed the foundation of Schiffenberg, by "domna Clementia quondam in Glizpurch comitissa, consanguinea nostra", with the consent of "domne Gertrudis palatine comitisse…et…domna Adala filia eiusdem domnæ palatine", by charter dated 1141, which names "Sifridus…filius predicte Adale"[1197].  The primary source which confirms her marriage has not yet been identified.  Heiress of Mörle and Cleeberg.  "Comes Chunradus de Pilstaine", before leaving for Jerusalem, sold property to Admont "cum coniuge sua Adela et cum filiis Friderico, Sigifredo et Chounrado" by charter dated to [1147][1198].  The necrology of Melk records the death "IV Id Aug" of "Adala com"[1199].  The necrology of Admont records the death "IV Id Aug" of "Adala com"[1200]

Graf Konrad [I] & his first wife had [one probable] child: 

1.         [UTA (-22 Nov before 1170, bur Stift Göttweig).  Wegener suggests that Uta, wife of Graf Liutold [I], was the daughter of Luitpold III Markgraf of Austria, basing this on the transmission of the names Luitpold and Berta into the family of the Grafen von Plain.  According to Europäische Stammtafeln[1201], she was the daughter of Konrad [I] Graf von Peilstein [Sieghardinger], presumably by his first wife Euphemia of Austria.  It is not known on what information this proposed origin is based but it would provide an alternative explanation for the introduction of the name Luitpold into the family of the Grafen von Plain, as Graf Konrad's first wife was a Babenberg.  m [as his second wife,] LIUTOLD Graf von Plain, son of WERIGAND Graf von Plain & his wife --- (-22/23 Jan 1164).  The Salzburg Annals record the death in 1164 of "Liutoldus de Plein comes"[1202].]

Graf Konrad [I] & his second wife had five children:

2.         FRIEDRICH [IV] .  "Comes Chunradus de Pilstaine", before leaving for Jerusalem, sold property to Admont "cum coniuge sua Adela et cum filiis Friderico, Sigifredo et Chounrado" by charter dated to [1147][1203]Graf von Peilstein und Kleeberg/Nassau.  1145/62. 

3.         SIEGFRIED [I] (-1174 or after).  "Wilhelmus et Otto comites de Glizperch, consanguinei" confirmed the foundation of Schiffenberg, by "domna Clementia quondam in Glizpurch comitissa, consanguinea nostra", with the consent of "domne Gertrudis palatine comitisse…et…domna Adala filia eiusdem domnæ palatine", by charter dated 1141, which names "Sifridus…filius predicte Adale"[1204].  "Comes Chunradus de Pilstaine", before leaving for Jerusalem, sold property to Admont "cum coniuge sua Adela et cum filiis Friderico, Sigifredo et Chounrado" by charter dated to [1147][1205]Graf von Peilstein und Kleeberg.  Graf von Mörle 1158.  The necrology of Michaelbeuern records the death "VI Kal Jun" of "Sifridus com"[1206].  The necrology of Reitenhaslach records the death "VI Kal Jun" of "Syffridus com"[1207]m ---.  The name of Siegfried's wife is not known.  Graf Siegfried [I] & his wife had one child:

i)          [[SIEGFRIED] (-before 1196).  Wegener speculates that the husband of Alveradis was an older brother of Graf Friedrich [VI] and assumes that his name must have been Siegfried[1209].  This appears to be a reasonable speculation but there appears to be no proof that it is correct.  One difficulty is the absence of a reference to a second son from the donation of his supposed mother Euphemia (see above).  Graf von Kleeberg.  m ALVERADIS von Leiningen, daughter of --- Graf von Leiningen & his wife ---.  Ulrich Provost at Worms confirmed the donation of Bockenheim church to Kloster Wadgassen made by "comes Simon de Saarbrucken et uxor eius Lutgardis…[et] comitissa Alberadis de Cleberc soror prenominate comitisse, marito et liberis orbata zelo pietatis agitata" by charter dated 1196[1210].  "Alueradis…comitissa de Molbach" donated property "in Nuinkerchen quod ad me ab avo et matre mea" to Kloster Niederprüm, in which her mother was buried, by charter dated 22 Jul 1207, witnessed by "Gerardus clericus filius comitis de Viannen, Fridericus et Gerardus clerici filii comitis de Salemene…"[1211].  1235.]

Chapter 26.  PFALZGRAFEN von BAYERN

 

 

A.      PFALZGRAFEN von BAYERN (10th CENTURY)

 

 

The title "Pfalzgraf von Bayern" first emerged in the later 10th century, and was passed through different families until 1248 when it died out with the last Pfalzgraf of the family of the Grafen von Ortenberg.  The role of the holder of the title "Pfalzgraf", of which there was only one in each of the original German provinces, is not known although it is possible that it related to a function at the ducal court similar to that of the palatine at the court of the Carolingian emperors[1234].  Whatever the origin and original reason for the title, it became attached as an honorific to the name of the geographical base of the family who held it from time to time.  Thus, during the period when the Wittelsbach family were Pfalzgrafen of Bavaria the holders of the title were most frequently referred to in contemporary sources as "Pfalzgrafen von Wittelsbach" instead of the more strictly correct "Pfalzgrafen von Bayern, Grafen von Wittelsbach". 

 

 

1.         ---.  m WICBURG, daughter of --- (-17 Mar ----).  The necrology of Seeon records the death "XVI Kal Apr" of "Wicpurch com hic iacet mater Hartwici"[1235].  Although it is not certain that this entry refers to the mother of Pfalzgraf Hartwig [I], it would certainly explain the introduction of the first name "Wicburg" into the family of Pfalzgraf Aribo [I] if it was correct.  It is not possible that the entry refers to the mother of Pfalzgraf Hartwig [II] who is known to have been named Adela (supposed granddaughter of this Wicburg). 

a)         HARTWIG [I] (-985)Pfalzgraf von Bayern 977.  [same person as…?  HARTWIG (-after 3 Apr 965).  "Otto…rex" transferred property "qua…comes…Hartuuic de manu Vuarmunti comitis…in loco Grabanastat…in pago Chiemichouve in comitatibus Otacharii, Sigihardi ac Vuillihalmi comitum" to the church of Salzburg by charter dated 8 Jun 959[1236].  "Otto…rex" granted property "inter duos montes Curozton et Cozine…in pago Crauuati et in ministerio Hartuigi comitis" to "clerico Diotpert" by charter dated 13 Feb 961[1237].  "Otto…imperator augustus" granted property "ad Vuirzsosah in partibus Karantanie in comitatu Hartuuigi comitis" to "episcopi Abrahe…suo vasallo Negomir" by charter dated 3 Apr 965[1238].]  m ---.  Hartwig's wife has not been identified.  Pfalzgraf Hartwig [I] & his wife had one child: 

i)          ADELA (-7 Sep after 1020).  The primary source which confirms her parentage has not yet been identified.  The necrology of Seeon records the death "VII Id Sep" of "Adala com ux Aribonis" and her donation[1239].  According to Wegener[1240], she married secondly Graf Engelbert [III].  However, the Seeon necrology entry appears to exclude the possibility that this second marriage is correct.  m [firstly] ARIBO [I] Pfalzgraf von Bayern, son of Graf CHADALHOH & his wife --- (-13 Feb 1000).  [m secondly ENGELBERT [III] Graf im Chiemgau, son of SIEGHARD [V] Graf im Chiemgau [Sieghardinger] & his wife Willa --- (-1020).] 

 

 

 

B.      PFALZGRAFEN von BAYERN 1059-1081 [PILGRIMIDEN]

 

 

KUNO von Rott, son of POPPO [II] von Rott & his wife --- im Ramgau (-27 Mar [1086]).  The Vita Sancti Marini et Anniani names "utriusque Popponis avi scilicet et patris eius [Chonradi alias Chuno comitis palatini]"[1241].  von Vohburg [1040].  Pfalzgraf von Bayern 1059.  "Heinricus…rex" granted "comitatum Histrie" and "marchiam Carniole" to the church of Aquileia at the request of "ducibus autem Writizlao Boemie ac Liudolfo Carintie, Cuonone quoque palatino comite et Tieboldo marchione" by two charters dated 11 Jun 1077[1242].  "Heinricus…rex" granted property "Beringen in pago Brisgouve in comitatu Cuononis palatine comitis" to Kloster Nieder-Altaich by charter dated 16 Aug 1079[1243].  Graf an der unteren Isar 1079.  He founded Kloster Rott.  The necrology of Seeon records the death "VI Kal Apr" of "Chuno palatinus fundator"[1244]

m UTA, daughter of --- (-9 Feb ----).  The Vita Sancti Marini et Anniani names "Chonradus alias Chuno comes palatinus" as founder of the monastery of Rott immediately followed by "Werta fundatrix"[1245], implying that the latter was Kuno's wife.  The necrology of Seeon records the death "V Id Feb" of "Uta"[1246], although it is not certain that this refers to the wife of Kuno.  Wegener speculates that she was Uta von Diessen, daughter of Graf FRIEDRICH [III] & his first wife [Irmgard] von [Gilching], but his speculation is tenuous[1247]

Pfalzgraf Kuno & his wife had two children: 

1.         KUNO [II] von Rott (-killed in battle Höchstätt 11 Aug 1081).  Wegener cites a reference naming "palatinus comes Chuono et filius eius Chuono"[1248].  The Fundatio Monasterii Berchtesgadensis names "fratris sui [mater comitis Perengarii, Irmingart] Cunonis de Horburc" but it is possible that the source confuses Irmgard's brother Kuno with her third husband Kuno[1249]Pfalzgraf von Bayern.  The Casus Monasterii Petrishusensis records that "dux Suevorum Fridericus et Couno palatinus de Fohiburch" were killed "de bello apud Hoste"[1250]m as her first husband, ELISABETH, daughter of ---.  The Vita Sancti Marini et Anniani names "Chuno iunior comes filius [Chonradi alias Chuno comitis palatine], Elizabeth uxor filii de Lotring"[1251].  The reference in this text to "de Lotring" has not been explained, but could refer to Lotharingia.  The primary source which confirms her second marriage has not yet been identified.  She married secondly Ratpoto [V] Pfalzgraf von Bayern (-1099). 

2.         IRMGARD (-14 Jun [1101]).  The Vita Sancti Marini et Anniani names "Irmgart filia [Chonradi alias Chuno comitis palatine], soror iunioris palatini"[1252].  By charter dated 5 Sep 1073, marked "unecht" in the compilation, "Heinricus…Romanorum imperator augustus" confirmed the foundation of Kloster Rott "in comitatu Arnolfi comitis" by "Cononis palatini", specifying that the latter had two children "Cononem…et Irmingardam"[1253].  It is clear that the date of this charter must be incorrect as the document refers to the death without children of Kuno junior.  However, there is no reason to believe that the brief genealogical details recorded therein are incorrect.  The Fundatio Monasterii Berchtesgadensis names "mater comitis Perengarii, Irmingart" as founder of Berchtesgaden monastery[1254], which confirms her marriage to Gebhard [II] Graf von Sulzbach.  The more difficult question is to decide the identity of her other husband.  The Fundatio Monasterii Berchtesgadensis also refers to a second marriage of Irmgard after "patre comitis Perengarii defuncto" but does not name this second husband[1255].  He was presumably the father of "fratris sui Cunonis de Horburc" who is named in the same source as co-founder of the monastery with his brother Berengar Graf von Sulzbach.  The necrology of Baumburg records the death "XVII Kal Jul" of "Irengardis com de Sultzpach sor na"[1256], which suggests that she was still the widowed "Gräfin von Sulzbach" when she died.  If this is correct, her other husband must have been Heinrich [I] von Lechsgemünd, son of [Kuno Graf von Lechsgemünd and his wife Mathilde von Horburg [Achalm] (-killed in battle near Mellrichstadt 7 Aug 1078), married as her first husband before Graf Gebhard.  This, however, contradicts the explicit, although incomplete, statement in the Fundatio concerning her marriage after the death of Graf Berengar's father.   Another factor is the reference to "Cunonis de Horburc" occurring in the Fundatio after it names his brother Berengar, which suggests that he was the junior partner in the foundation and also the younger brother.  Until further information comes to light, it is assumed that Irmgard's Lechsgemünd marriage was her second and that her husband must therefore be identified as Kuno von Horburg.  The Baumburg necrology entry must therefore be explained either because Irmgard had separated from her second husband before her death, reviving her previous title, or because the compiler of the necrology considered her first husband of more importance than her second and referred to her by his name.  The necrology of Salzburg St Rudpert records the death "XVIII Kal Jul" of "Irmingardis com"[1257]m firstly GEBHARD [II] Graf von Sulzbach, son of GEBHARD [I] Graf von Sulzbach & his wife --- (-[1085]).  m secondly KUNO Graf von Horburg, son of KUNO Graf von Lechsgemünd & his wife Mechtild von Horburg (-1103 or after). 

 

 

 

C.      PFALZGRAFEN von BAYERN [ARIBONEN] 985-1102

 

 

ARIBO [I], son of [CHADALHOH Graf im Isengau & his wife ---] (-13 Feb 1000, bur Seeon).  The primary source which confirms his parentage has not yet been identified.  It is assumed that it is no more than speculation, based on transmission of the name Chadalhoh to his son.  Pfalzgraf von Bayern 985.  He founded Seeon in 974 and Göss in 999.  "Otto…Romanorum imperator augustus" granted privileges to Kloster Seeon founded by "Arbonis comitis" by charter dated 15 Apr 999[1258].  The necrology of Seeon records the death "XVI Kal Mar" of "Aribo palatinus fundator hic iacet"[1259]

m as her first husband, ADELA, daughter of HARTWIG [I] Pfalzgraf von Bayern & his wife --- (-7 Sep after 1020).  The primary source which confirms her parentage has not yet been identified.  The necrology of Seeon records the death "VII Id Sep" of "Adala com ux Aribonis" and her donation[1260].  According to Wegener[1261], she married secondly Engelbert [III] Graf im Chiemgau [Sieghardinger].  However, the Seeon necrology entry appears to exclude the possibility that this second marriage is correct. 

Pfalzgraf Aribo [I] & his wife had seven children: 

1.         HARTWIG [II] (-24 Dec 1024, bur Seeon).  The primary source which confirms his parentage has not yet been identified.  Pfalzgraf von Bayern.  The necrology of Seeon records the death "IX Kal Jan" of "Hartwicus fil Aribonis hic iacet"[1262]m FREDERUNA, daughter of RETING [Immedinger] & his wife ---.  Her parentage and marriage are confirmed by Ekkehard who names "duo fratres Aerbo…et Boto paterno de sanguine Noricæ gentis…Hartwici palatini comitis filii…maternum…stemma de Saxonia Immidingorum tribus…mater a Retingo filio Botonis filii Retingi de secundo Botone nati procreatur" when recording the death of her son "Boto comes cognomento fortis Aerbonis…germanus"[1263].  She is named as wife of Pfalzgraf Hartwig in Europäische Stammtafeln[1264].  The primary source which confirms her name has not yet been identified.  Pfalzgraf Hartwig [II] & his wife had two children: 

a)         ARIBO [II] (before 1024-18 Mar 1102, bur Seeon).  His parentage is confirmed by Ekkehard who names "duo fratres Aerbo…et Boto paterno de sanguine Noricæ gentis…Hartwici palatini comitis filii" when recording the death of his brother "Boto comes cognomento fortis Aerbonis…germanus"[1265]Pfalzgraf von Bayern.  Graf im unteren Salzburggau.  "Heinricus…Romanorum imperator augustus" donated property "in locis Skeitdorf et Geroluingen…Aribo palatinus comes ad beneficium habuit in montibus Ratispone sitas et unum in pago Nortgewe in comitatu Heinrici comitis" to the church of Eichstätt by charter dated 12 Mar 1055[1266].  Graf von Haigermoos 1074.  He founded Millstatt.  The necrology of Milstatt records the death "XV Kal Apr" of "Aerbo com palatinus et fundator huius ecclesie"[1267].  The necrology of Seeon records the death "XV Kal Apr" of "Aribo palatinus com hic iacet"[1268]m (before 1070) LUITGART, daughter of --- (-[22 Feb] ----).  1066/77.  The necrology of Seeon records the death "VIII Kal Mar" of "Liukart com"[1269].  Although it is not certain that this entry refers to the wife of Pfalzgraf Aribo [II], many entries in this necrology relate to members of this family and no other "Liukart com" has been identified among his relations to whom this could refer.  According to Wegener[1270], Luitgard was the widow of Engelbert [IV] Graf im Pustertal [Chiemgau].  However, "Engilbertus comes" donated property to Brixen at the request of "fratris sui Hartwici…episcopi" for the soul of "Liudkarde coniugis sue"[1271] which appears to confirm that Engelbert survived his wife.  Pfalzgraf Aribo [II] & his wife had one child: 

i)          HARTWIG .  The primary source which confirms his parentage has not yet been identified.  He died before his father. 

b)         BOTHO (before Dec 1024-1 Mar 1104).  His parentage is confirmed by Ekkehard who names "duo fratres Aerbo…et Boto paterno de sanguine Noricæ gentis…Hartwici palatini comitis filii" when recording the death of "Boto comes cognomento fortis Aerbonis…germanus"[1272].  Graf von Botenstein 1074.  The necrology of Milstatt records the death "Kal Mar" of "Poto com et fundator huius ecclesie"[1273]m (1056) as her second husband, JUDITH von Schweinfurt, widow of KUNO [Konrad] Duke of Bavaria [Ezzonen], daughter of OTTO Graf von Schweinfurt & his wife Irmgard [Aemilia/Immula] di Susa (-[1 Mar 1104]).  The Annalista Saxo names (in order) "Eilica, Iudhita, Beatrix, Gisla, Berta" as the five daughters of Otto von Schweinfurt and Immula, naming Judith's two husbands[1274].  "Heinricus…tertius Romanorum imperator augustus" confirmed the donation of property "villa Rounueld…in pago Vueringeon in comitatu Vueringeri" by "Boto Noricus natione vivens Bauarica…coniugis sue Iudithæ" by charter dated 2 Sep 1094[1275].  Graf Botho & his wife had one child: 

i)          ADELHEID (-after 13 Aug 1106).  She is named in the Annalista Saxo, which also specifies her parentage and names her husband[1276]m as his second wife, HENDRIK I Graf van Limburg, son of --- (-1119).  He was installed as HEINRICH I Duke of Lower Lotharingia in 1101. 

2.         WICHBURG (-12 Aug or 5 Dec ----).  The necrology of Seeon records the death "II Id Aug" of "Wicpurch filia Aribonis"[1277].  Another entry in the same necrology records the death "Non Dec" of "Wichpurch filia Aribonis"[1278].  It is assumed that Aribo had two daughters of this name, the older one presumably dying young before the birth of her younger sister. 

3.         WICHBURG (-12 Aug or 5 Dec ----).  The necrology of Seeon records the death "Non Dec" of "Wichpurch filia Aribonis"[1279].  Another entry in the same necrology records the death "II Id Aug" of "Wicpurch filia Aribonis"[1280].  It is assumed that Aribo had two daughters of this name, the older one presumably dying young before the birth of her younger sister.

a)         CHADALHOH (-30 Oct [1050]).  The primary source which confirms his parentage has not yet been identified.  "Preses Chadalhoh" donated property to Tegernsee monastery, naming "fratris sui Pilgrimi Archiepiscopi Coloniensis"[1284].   Graf im Isengau 1030.  Vogt von St Emmeram.  "Heinricus…Romanorum imperator augustus" granted property "forestum Heit…in comitatu Kadalhohi et Ozini comitis" to the church of Salzburg by charter dated 16 Dec 1049[1285].  The necrology of Salzburg St Rudpert records the death "4 Kal Nov" of "Chadalhoh com"[1286].  The necrology of Seeon records the death "III Kal Nov" of "Kadelhohus com" and his donation[1287].  The necrology of Regensburg St Emmeram records the death "III Kal Nov" of "Chadlahoh com"[1288]m IRMGARD von Aspel, daughter of BERTHOLD von Walbeck & his [second] wife --- (-[5 Feb 1075]).  A charter dated to [1074/87] records various donations to Admont including the donation by "Irmgart comitissa vidua Chadilhohi comitis"[1289].  The primary source which confirms her parentage has not yet been identified.  Graf Chadalhoh & his wife had [one] child:

m --- von Ratzenhofen, daughter of EBERHARD von Ratzenhofen & his wife Mathilde von Reipertshofen.  It is possible that she was named Kunigunde, as the necrology of Undensdorf records the death "IV Id Jul" of "Chunegunt com"[1303].  This necrology records almost exclusively members of the Wittelsbach family and this entry cannot be linked to any other known person in the family.

OTTO [IV] von Scheyern, son of OTTO [III] Graf von Scheyern & his wife --- von Ratzenhofen (-4/5 Aug 1156, bur Ensdorf).  The primary source which confirms his parentage has not yet been identified.  Wegener conflates Graf Otto [III] and Graf Otto [IV] into one person[1304]Europäische Stammtafeln shows them separately[1305].  The latter is more probable from a chronological point of view.  If it is correct that Graf Otto [III] was the son of Graf Ekkehard, he must have been born just before the death of his father in [1087/88], given the age of his mother.  On the other hand, Otto I Duke of Bavaria married in [1156/58].  The difference between these two dates would be unusually great if Duke Otto was the son of Otto [III].  No primary sources have so far been found to confirm the matter one way or another.  Vogt of Freising Cathedral.  Vogt von Ensdorf, Ober Pfalz.  He founded Ensdorf Monastery in 1121, and Indersdorf Convent 1124.  Pfalzgraf von Wittelsbach 1124.  Vogt von Geisenfeld [1130].  The necrology of Thierhaupt records the death "Non Aug" of "Otto com de Wittelspach"[1306].  The necrology of Undensdorf records the death "II Non Aug" of "Otto palatinus pater ducis"[1307].  The necrology of Weltenburg records the death "II Non Aug" of "Otto palatinus com"[1308]

Pfalzgraf Otto [IV] & his wife had [seven] children:

4.         KONRAD von Wittelsbach (-Riedfeld [26 Oct] 1200).  The Chronicon Schirense names "Chounradus, primo Magontinus episcopus, post Salzburgensis" as one of the four sons of "Ottonem…palatinus comes"[1324].  Canon at Salzburg Cathedral.  Archbishop of Mainz 1161-1177, in exile from 1165.  Cardinal of San Marco 1165.  Cardinal-Bishop of Sabina and Bishop of Sora 1166-1200.  Archbishop of Salzburg 1177-1183.  Archbishop of Mainz 1183-1200.  "…duo fratres mei palatine Fridericus et Otto…" witnessed the charter dated 1189 under which Konrad [I] Archbishop of Mainz confirmed the rights of Nonnenkloster Weende[1325].  The necrology of Undensdorf records the death "VII Kal Oct" of "Chunradus de Witlinspach" and his donation of "predium Wrmhershoe"[1326].  If this entry refers to Archbishop Konrad it is surprising that no reference is made to his archiepiscopal status.  However, no other known Konrad has yet been identified in the family to whom this could apply. 

5.         OTTO [VI] von Wittelsbach (-18 Aug 1189, bur Indersdorf).  The Chronicon Schirense names "Otto…iunior dicebatur palatinus comes de Witilininspach" as one of the four sons of "Ottonem…palatinus comes", specifying that he was buried "Undinstorf"[1327].  Vogt von Kühbach 1156.  He was installed as Pfalzgraf in 1180 after his brother had been created Duke of Bavaria[1328].  The necrology of Thierhaupt records the death "XV Kal Sep" of "Otto de Witelspach palatinus 1200"[1329], although the year appears inaccurate.  The necrology of Undensdorf records the death "XV Kal Sep" of "Otto palatinus nr advocatus"[1330].  The necrology of Weltenburg records the death "XV Kal Sep" of "Otto palatinus de Wittelinspach"[1331]m BENEDIKTA von Wörth, daughter of MANGOLD Graf von [Donau-]Wörth & his wife --- (-12 Feb or 6 Apr----).  Her parentage is confirmed by the necrology of Thierhaupt which records the death "Non Apr" of "Manegoldus comes de Werdea…pater Benedictæ uxoris com Ottonis de Witelsbach"[1332].  The necrology of Thierhaupt records the death "II Id Feb" of "Benedicta coniunx comitis de Wittelspach"[1333].  The necrology of Weltenburg records the death "VIII Id Apr" of "Benedicta palatine"[1334].  Pfalzgraf Otto [VI] & his wife had five children: 

a)         UDALSCHALK .  The primary source which confirms his parentage has not yet been identified.  1158/72. 

b)         OTTO [VII] (-executed 5 Mar 1209, bur Indersdorf).  The Chronicon Schirense names "palatinus comes Otto iuvenis" as son of "Otto…iunior dicebatur palatinus comes de Witilininspach", specifying that he killed King Philipp[1335].  He succeeded in 1193 as Pfalzgraf von Wittelsbach.  The Continuatio Admuntensis names "Ottone palatino comite" as the murderer of Philipp King of Germany[1336].  The necrology of Scheyern records the death "III Non Mar" of "Otto palatinus com iunior occisus"[1337]Betrothed [firstly] (1202) to BEATRIX von Staufen, daughter of PHILIPP King of Germany Duke of Swabia & his wife Maria [Eirene] Angelina ([1198]-11 Aug 1212, bur Braunschweig Cathedral).  The Annales Marbacenses record that one of the four daughters of King Philipp (first in the list) married "Ottoni postea imperatoris", having been first betrothed to "palatino de Witilisbach"[1338].  Her betrothal with Otto von Wittelsbach was ended to enable her betrothal with a nephew of Pope Innocent III, being negotiated in Rome as part of the settlement arrangements with her father's rival Otto of Brunswick, which prompted Otto [VII] to assassinate King Philipp[1339].  [Betrothed secondly ([after 1207]) to GERTRUD of Silesia, daughter of HEINRICH I Duke of Lower Silesia, Krakow and Greater Poland & his wife Hedwig von Andechs-Merano ([1200]-30 Dec [1268]).  The Chronica principum Polonie names "tres filios et tres filias…Boleslaum, Agnetem et Sophiam, sepultos in Lubens, necnon Henricum, Conradum et Girdrudim" as children of Heinrich and his wife, adding that Gertrud was betrothed to "palatino Reni, qui regem Almanie Philippum occidit" and later became "abbatissam Trebnicensem"[1340].] 

c)         AGNES (-5 Mar ----).  1172/1219.  The Chronicle of Alberic de Trois-Fontaines refers to the wife of "Albertum [filius comiti Alberto de Everstein ultra Coliniam]" as "neptem archiepiscopi Moguntini que fuerat comitissa Silvestris sororem scilicet illius comitis Ottonis de Withhelebac qui interfecit Philippum de Suavia"[1341].  The primary source which confirms the name of her first husband has not yet been identified.  m firstly GERHARD [I] Wildgraf und Graf von Kyrburg, son of KONRAD Wildgraf, Graf von Kyrburg & his wife Mathilde de Bar.  1172/98.  m secondly ([1198/1202]) as his second wife, ALBERT [IV] Graf von Everstein, of ALBERT [III] Graf von Everstein & his [first] wife Ryksa of Silesia (-19 Sep before 1217).  

d)         HEILIKA (-13 Aug after 1189).  The primary source which confirms her parentage and marriage has not yet been identified.  The necrology of Undensdorf records the death "Id Aug" of "Heilika ducisse Pohemie"[1342]m (before 1176) KONRAD III OTTO Duke of Moravia, son of KONRAD II Duke of Moravia & his wife Maria of Serbia (-near Naples 9 Sep 1191).  He succeeded in 1189 as KONRAD I OTTO Duke of Bohemia.    

e)         EUPHEMIA .  Wegener cites a source dated [1182] which records "Otto palatinus et uxor illius Benedicta et filia eius Euphemia fratres nostri facti sunt"[1343]

6.         [HEDWIG (-16 Jul 1174).  The Notæ Diessenses record the death "XVII Kal Aug" of "Hadewic comitissa", specifying that she was buried "in capitolio"[1344].  The De Fundatoribus Monasterii Diessenses records the death in 1176 of "Hiadwigis uxor eius [=Pertoldi marchio Ystrie]"[1345].  The necrology of Diessen records the death "1176 Kal Aug XVII" of "Hadewic com sepulta in capitolio…uxor Berhtoldi marchionis"[1346].  Her origin is less clear.  Wegener refers to the testament of Friedrich Pfalzgraf von Wittelsbach which names Berthold II Graf von Andechs as his near relative and concludes that Hedwig must therefore have been Friedrich's sister[1347].  However, there must be other possibilities.  m (before 1153) as his first wife, BERTHOLD [II] Graf von Andechs, son of BERTHOLD [I] Graf von Andechs & his first wife Sophia of Istria (-14 Dec 1188).  Markgraf von Istria 1173.]  

7.         ADELHEID (-8/9 Feb ----).  The Notæ Genealogicæ Bavaricæ refers to the wife of "Otto lancravius" as "filiam palatine de Witelinsbach"[1348].  The necrology of Melk records the death "V Id Feb" of "Alheidis de Stefling so na"[1349].  The necrology of Undensdorf records the death "VI Id Feb" of "Alhaeit com" and her donation[1350]m OTTO [II] Landgraf von Steffling, son of OTTO [I] Burggraf von Regensburg & his wife Adelheid von Plötzkau (-16 Aug [1175]).

 

 

The necrology of Undensdorf records the deaths "IV Kal Nov" of "Ulricus com", "II Kal Nov" of "Otto com", "II Non Dec" of "Otto com", and "Non Dec" of "Chunradus com"[1351].  As most of the entries in this necrology relate to members of the Wittelsbach family it almost certain that these four records also refer to family members.  They cannot, however, be linked with certainty to any of the known individuals listed above.

m (after Jun 1151) as her second husband, KUNIGUNDE von Formbach, widow of BERTHOLD [I] von Andechs Graf von Diessen, daughter of EKBERT [II] Graf von Formbach & his wife Willibirg ---.  The Codex Traditionum of Formbach monastery records a donation by "Comes Ekkebertus", with the consent of "Willebirga et filia ipsorum Chunigunda"[1367].  The Vita Wirntonis names "dux Dalmatie et marchio Ystrie Berchtoldus" as brother-in-law of "comes Eckebertus" but does not name his wife[1368].  The primary source which confirms her two marriages has not yet been identified. 

Ulrich [III] & his wife had one child: 

1.         EKBERT (-19 Jan [1200]).  The primary source which confirms his parentage has not yet been identified.  Graf 1180.  The necrology of Pernegg records the death "XIV Kal Feb" of "Ekbertus com de Pernegg fundator"[1369]m HEDWIG, daughter of --- (-13 Jun ----).  The necrology of Windberg records the death "Id Jun" of "Haedewic de Tekendorf coma"[1370].  Her origin is not known.  However, Wegener suggests that she was Hedwig von Bogen, daughter of Berthold [II] Graf von Bogen & his wife Liutgard von Burghausen, without giving the basis for this speculation other than stating that the wife of Ekbert von Deggendorf "must be from the family of the Grafen von Bogen"[1371].  Ekbert & his wife had [four] children: 

a)         ULRICH [IV] (-25 Jan [1218]).  The necrology of Pernegg records the death "VIII Kal Feb" of "Ulricus com de Pernegg fil Ekberti comitis de Pernegg fundator"[1372]m ---.  The name of Ulrich's wife is not known.  Ulrich [IV] & his wife had one child:

Chapter 28.  GRAFEN von POIGEN, BERGTHEIM und VELBURG

 

 

 

1.         HERMANN [I], son of [GEBHARD [I] Graf von Sulzbach & his wife --- .  Wegener suggests that Hermann [I] Graf von Poigen was the son of Gebhard [I] Graf von Sulzbach in order to explain the transmission of the name Gebhard into the family of the Grafen von Poigen[1376]Graf von Poigenm [firstly] --- .  Wegener suggests that Graf Hermann married twice, his first wife being --- von Diessen, daughter of Berthold [I] Graf von Diessen & his wife ---, in order to explain the transmission of the name Berthold to his second son[1377].  Unfortunately, Wegener reduces the effect of his own argument when, on the next page, he highlights the absence of proof that Berthold was in fact the son of Graf Hermann [I][1378].  [m secondly --- .  Wegener suggests that Graf Hermann married twice, his second wife being --- of Austria, daughter of Ernst I Markgraf of Austria & his first wife Adelheid von Wettin, in order to explain the transmission of the names Ernst and Adalbert to his two younger sons[1379].  Graf Hermann [I] & his [first/second] wife had [five] children: 

a)         GEBHARD [I] von Poigen (-19 Nov [1143]).  The primary source which confirms his parentage has not yet been identified.  Wegener quotes a source dated [1121/22] which names "Gebehardus comes de Piugin et frater eius Ernist"[1380]Graf von Poigen.  The necrology of Altenburg records the death "XIII Kal Dec" of "Gebhardus com de Boige maritus næ fundatricis post cuius obitum ipsa cum filio suo Hermanno com de Lapide fundavit cœnobium 1144"[1381]m HILDBURG von Rebegau, daughter of [ADALBERT Graf von Rebegau & his wife ---] (-4 Dec after 1144).  Wegener quotes a source dated [1122] which names "Gebehardus comes de Piugin", his wife Hiltipurg, son Hermann and brother Adelbert[1382].  "Domina Hildeburch…cum filio suo…Hermanno" founded Kloster Altenburg, after the death of "viro suo…comite Gebehardo de Bouige", by charter dated 25 Jul 1144, witnessed by "…comes Adelbertus de Rebegou…"[1383].  The necrology of Altenburg records the death "II Non Dec" of "Hildiburgis de Rebegaw in Svevia fundatrix h m", with the date 1144 although this presumably refers to the foundation of the monastery (as shown by another entry in the same necrology which records her husband's death) rather than her own death[1384].  The necrology of Altenburg also records the death "VII Kal Mar" of "Albertus come de Rebegau", which may refer to Hildburg's father[1385].  Graf Gebhard [I] & his wife had one child: 

i)          HERMANN [II] von Poigen (-after 1144).  Wegener quotes a source dated [1122] which names "Gebehardus comes de Piugin", his wife Hiltipurg, son Hermann and brother Adelbert[1386]Graf von Poigen.  The necrology of Altenburg names "filio suo [Geberhari comitis de Boige] Hermanno com de Lapide" in the record of his father's death, noting that he and his mother founded the monastery in 1144[1387].  "Domina Hildeburch…cum filio suo…Hermanno" founded Kloster Altenburg, after the death of "viro suo…comite Gebehardo de Bouige", by charter dated 25 Jul 1144, witnessed by "…comes Adelbertus de Rebegou…"[1388]

b)         [BERTHOLD (-28 Feb or 10 Oct [1140/44]).  Wegener highlights the absence of sources which prove that Graf Berthold was the son of Hermann [I] Graf von Poigen, but suggests this affiliation to explain the transmission of the name Hermann to Berthold's son[1389].  Graf von Bergtheim.  Wegener cites a source dated 28 Sep 1108 which names "comes Pertolfus de Berhtheim"[1390].  Wegener cites the necrology of Michelsberg which records the deaths "II Kal Mar" and "VI Id Oct" of "Bertholdus com" and "Bertholdus com et m" respectively[1391], either of which may refer to Berthold Graf von Bergtheim.  He also cites the deaths in the same necrology "VII Id Aug" and "IX Kal Aug" of "Tiemo pater Berhtoldi comitis" and "Adelheit mater Berhtoldi comitis" respectively[1392], although it is not clear to which of the previously mentioned Graf Berthold this refers.  m BEATRIX, daughter of --- (-4 Feb [before her husband]).  Wegener cites the necrology of Michelsberg which records the death "II Non Nov" of "Beatrix com pro cuius anima dedit maritus eius Berth com predium Richpach"[1393].  Wegener suggests that she was Beatrix von Mainz, daughter of Gerhard Stadtgraf von Mainz, presumably on the basis of the name Gerhard having passed to her older son[1394].  Graf Berthold & his wife had two children: 

i)          GERHARD (-10 Nov ----).  Wegener refers to a source which names Gerhard and Hermann as sons of Graf Berthold when recording that they divided his property after their father's death[1395].  He quotes another source dated 1156 which names "Gerhardus comes de Velburc et Herman frater eius"[1396].  Graf von Bergtheim und Velburg.  Wegener cites the necrology of Michelsberg which records the death "IV Id Nov" of "Gerhardus comes"[1397]

ii)         HERMANN (-[22 Jul] ----).  Wegener refers to a source which names Gerhard and Hermann as sons of Graf Berthold when recording that they divided his property after their father's death1387.  He quotes another source dated 1156 which names "Gerhardus comes de Velburc et Herman frater eius"1388.  1186.  Graf von Bergtheim und Velburg.  The necrology of Admont records the death "XI Kal Aug" of "Hermannus com"[1398], although it is not certain that this entry refers to this Graf Hermann.  m ADELHEID von Klamm, daughter of WALCHUN von Klamm & his wife Beatrix von Wilhering (-18 Feb 1154).  Wegener cites the necrology of Michelsberg which records the death "XIV Kal Dec" of "Adelheit com de Bercheim"[1399].  Graf Hermann & his wife had one child: 

(a)       OTTO (-[1197/98]).  The primary source which confirms his parentage has not yet been identified.  Graf von Bergtheim und Velburg.  m ELISABETH, daughter of ---.  The primary source which confirms her marriage has not yet been identified.   Graf Otto & his wife had [two] children: 

(1)       ULRICH (-11 Jul [1218]).  Wegener cites a source which names "Ulricus puer filius Ottonis comitis de Velburc"[1400].  Graf von Velburg und Klamm. 

(2)       [daughter .  The primary source which confirms her parentage and marriage has not yet been identified.  m ALBERT von Endsee.] 

c)         daughters .  Nuns at Geisenfeld [1115].  "Ernestus de Hohenburch" donated property to Geisenfeld monastery "in manus amite sue Abbatisse Friderune", on the occasion of the entry of one of his sisters in the monastery, witnessed by "frater eius Adalbreth…"[1401]

d)         ERNST [I] von Poigen (-1122 or after).  Wegener quotes a source dated [1121/22] which names "Gebehardus comes de Piugin et frater eius Ernist"[1402].  "Ernestus de Hohenburch" donated property to Geisenfeld monastery "in manus amite sue Abbatisse Friderune", on the occasion of the entry of one of his sisters in the monastery, witnessed by "frater eius Adalbreth…"[1403].  Graf von Hohenburg. 

-        GRAFEN von HOHENBURG

e)         ADALBERT [I] von Poigen (-[6 Jan] ----).  Wegener quotes a source dated [1122] which names "Gebehardus comes de Piugin", his wife Hiltipurg, son Hermann and brother Adelbert[1404].  "Ernestus de Hohenburch" donated property to Geisenfeld monastery "in manus amite sue Abbatisse Friderune", on the occasion of the entry of one of his sisters in the monastery, witnessed by "frater eius Adalbreth…"[1405].  [1115].  [1137].  Wegener highlights two references to Adalbert Graf von Rebegau, which he assumes refer to this Adalbert.  However, it appears that this is not correct and that Adalbert Graf von Rebegau was probably the father of Hildburg, wife of Gebhard [I] Graf von Poigen who was Adalbert's older brother (see above).  The necrology of Traunkirchen records the death "VIII Id Jan" of "Albertus com"[1406], which Wegener links to this Graf Adalbert[1407] although it is not certain that this is the only possibility.  [m firstly --- von Nalb, daughter of [WOLFGER [I] von Nalb & his wife ---].  See below, for the explanation provided by Wegener for the existence of this first wife of Graf Adalbert [I].]  m [secondly] GERTRUD, daughter of ---.  The primary source which confirms her marriage has not yet been identified.  Graf Adalbert [I] & his [first] wife had [one] child:   

i)          [WOLFGER (-21 Jul ----).  Wegener cites sources, dated [1157/58] and 1161 respectively, which name "comes Woifkerus et frater eius Gebehardus de Stain" and "Wolfger de Naliube, Adelbertus et Gebehardus comites"[1408].  He assumes therefore that Wolfger was the son of Graf Adalbert by a first marriage with a daughter of Wolfger [I] von Nalb, who transmitted Nalb to her son.  It is, however, curious that Wolfger is not mentioned with his brothers Adalbert and Gebhard as another son of Graf Adalbert in the source referred to below.  A better explanation for this would be that Graf Adalbert was married once with the widow of Wolfger [I] von Nalb and that Wolfger [II] was her son by her first marriage.  Graf von Stein.  Graf von Nalb.] 

Graf Adalbert [I] & his [second] wife had two children: 

ii)         ADALBERT [II] von Poigen (-23 Feb ----).  Wegener cites a source which names Adalbert and Gebhard as sons of Adalbert and their patruelis Ernst von Hohenberg[1409].  1173.  Wegener cites a source in which Leopold Duke of Austria confirms 4 Jan 1189 that the brothers Adelbert and Gebehard Graf von Rebgowe were deceased[1410].  The coincidence is striking between the reference to these sons of Graf Adalbert as Grafen von Rebegau and the reference to Hildburg, wife of Gebhard [I] Graf von Poigen (see above), as "von Rebegau".  It is possible that this family is constructed completely differently from as shown by Wegener, as follows: (1) Adalbert, brother of Graf Gebhard [I] and Graf Ernst [I] died without issue; (2) a sister of Graf Gebhard [I] and Graf Ernst [I] married Adalbert Graf von Rebegau, who was the brother of Hildburg wife of Graf Gebhard [I].  (3) this sister may have married Wolfger [I] von Nalb as her first husband.  In this way, Graf Ernst [II] could still be described as patruelis of the brothers Adalbert and Gebhard, and the connection between these brothers and the monastery of Altenburg would be more easily explained as it would have been founded by their paternal aunt. 

iii)        GEBHARD [II] von Poigen (-10 Feb ----).  Graf von Stein.  1186.  The necrology of Altenburg records the donation "IV Id Feb" by "Gebehardus comes" of "ecclesiam Stroegen et ecclesiam ad Sta Margaretham"[1411], which may refer to this Graf Gebhard.  The necrology of Asbach records the death "IV Id Feb" of "Gebhardus com"[1412]

2.         [FREDERUNA .  Abbess of Geisenfeld [1115].  Her parentage is suggested by the donation by "Ernestus de Hohenburch" to Geisenfeld monastery "in manus amite sue Abbatisse Friderune", witnessed by "frater eius Adalbreth…"[1413].]

MEGINHARD [IV], son of [THIEMO [I] Graf von Schweinachgau, in Reichenhall und im Salzburggau [Formbach] & his wife ---] (-killed in battle 1066).  According to the 14th century Genealogia comitum Neuburgensium sive Formbacensium, "Meginhardus frater senioris Tiemonis genuit Oudalricum, Hermannum provincie comitem et Chunradum"[1414], although it appears chronologically more probable that Meginhard was the son rather than brother of "senioris Tiemonis" considering that it is unlikely that Meginhard's sons were born much before [1045/50].  Wegener refers to abbot Wirnto's description of the foundation of the abbey of Vornbach dated [1108/27] which names "Meginhardus comes, Ekibertus comes, Oudalricus comes supranominati [Meginhardi] filius et frater eius Hermannus comes et nepos Chounradi comes filius supradicti Oudalrici, Ekibertus comes, Heinricus comes et filius eius Dietricus comes"[1415].  Graf.  Vogt von Niederaltaich [1060].  "Heinricus…rex" donated property "villam Geroltisdorf in pago Bunnaha in comitatu Meginhardi comitis" to Kloster Gurk by charter dated 1066[1416]

a)         RUPRECHT (-[13 Dec] [1035]).  No source has been identified which states specifically that Ruprecht was the son of Babo [I].  However, this is suggested by the continuity of possession of the town of Regensburg and Ruprecht naming his own son Babo.  Burggraf von Regensburg 990.  "Chuonradus…rex" donated property "in septentrionali parte Danubii fluminis et in comitatu Rotperti comitis sitas" to Egilbert Bishop of Freising by charter dated 6 May 1025[1440].  "Vir nobilis…Gotscalc cum uxore sua Halika" donated property "in loco Simaningen" to Regensburg St Emmeram "quatenus filiis suis duobus Adalberto et Rutperto…præbenda daretur" by charter dated 1028 subscribed by "Ruotperht Ratisponensis Comes cum filiis suis duobus Heinrico et Babone"[1441].  The necrology of Regensburg St Emmeram records the death "Id Dec" of "Ruotpertus com"[1442], which may refer to Ruprecht.  m ---.  The name and origin of the wife of Graf Ruprecht are not known.  Wegener suggests that she was the daughter of Heinrich von Schweinfurt in order to explain the arrival of the names Heinrich and Otto in the family[1443], but presumably this is only one of many possibilities as these names are not exclusive to the Schweinfurt family.  Ruprecht & his wife had four children:
