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 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. 

 

For presentational purposes, the families in this document are divided geographically, corresponding approximately to the Bavarian duchies of Ingolstadt, Landshut, Munich and Straubing which were created as apanages for the Bavarian ducal family in the mid-14th century.  In addition, families in the Nordgau and the area around Regensburg are shown separately.  It is recognised that this division is anachronistic so far as the earlier period is concerned.  In addition, the landholdings of many families became fragmented over the whole of Bavarian territory through the process of inheritance, grant and donation to religious institutions. 

 

Many of the families set out in this document were studied in detail by Wilhelm Wegener in the mid-1960s[1].  Wegener’s work is difficult to use as he includes many speculative connections without in all cases making it clear that they are speculative.  Attention has therefore been given to “deconstructing” the earlier generations of several of these Bavarian noble families, after verifying the primary source documentation cited by Wegener. 

 

 

 

Chapter 1.    INGOLSTADT

 

 

 

A.      GRAFEN von ABENSBERG

 

 

The town of Abensberg is located a couple of kilometres east of Neustadt, south of the Danube river, about 35 kilometres east of Ingolstadt.  It first emerges in the sources as the headquarters of a noble family in the early 12th century.  Altmann [I] is referred to as Graf von Abensberg in the 1180s, but the title was not inherited by succeeding members of his family.  As will be seen below, it is likely that the Abensberg family was descended from the Ratzenhofen family, although the primary sources are insufficiently explicit to prove the relationship.  There are several important gaps in the family’s descent which cannot be confirmed, as will be seen.  The family became extinct in the male line in 1485. 

 

 

No connection has been established between the following family group and the later Abensberg family, but the names Eberhard and Altmann suggest that they were related. 

 

1.         EBERHARD [I] m ROTRUD, illegitimate daughter of UDALRICH Graf [von Ebersberg] Marchese di Carniola & his mistress ---.  The Chronico Eberspergense names "miles Eberhardus suum filium, Altmannum…quem genuit de Ruottrude quæ fuit Oudalrici filia ex concubina"[2].  Eberhard & his wife had one child: 

a)         ALTMANN (-16 Jun [1046]).  The Chronico Eberspergense names "miles Eberhardus suum filium, Altmannum…quem genuit de Ruottrude quæ fuit Oudalrici filia ex concubina", specifying that Altmann was educated at a monk under "Reginpoldus Augustensis abbas"[3].  Abbot of Ebersberg.  The necrology of Ebersberg records the death "XVI Kal Iul" of "Altman abbas", the Chronico Eberspergense recording his death together with that of Richlind (who died in 1046)[4]

 

 

Two siblings.  Their parents have not been identified, but the name Eberhard suggests a connection with the preceding family.  The chronology does not appear to favour Eberhard [II] being the same person as Eberhard [I]. 

 

1.         EBERHARD [II] (-after 1065)Graf [von ---].  "Nobilis vir Wolftrergil" donated property to Geisenfeld monastery "in manus Heberhardi comitis sororisque eius Wichperge abbatisse" by undated charter[5].  Wegener dates this document to [1065][6].  "Engilrait" donated property to Geisenfeld monastery "in potestatem comitis Eberhardi" by charter dated 1065[7]

2.         WICHPERG (-after [1065]).  Abbess of Geisenfeld.  "Nobilis vir Wolftrergil" donated property to Geisenfeld monastery "in manus Heberhardi comitis sororisque eius Wichperge abbatisse" by undated charter[8]

 

 

Two siblings.  From a chronological point of view, it is possible that Eberhard [III] was the same person as Eberhard [II]. 

 

1.         EBERHARD [III] von Ratzenhofen (-[1095/97]).  Vogt of Kloster Geisenfeld.  A charter dated 1087 records an agreement between Udalrich Bishop of Eichstätt and "Friderunam Gisenveldensem abbatissam", who donated property “in loco Wolfbuoch” to Geisenfeld monastery "per manum advocati sui Heberhardi"[9].  Erchanger Abbot of Weihenstefan exchanged property with “Eberhardo de Razinhovan” by undated charter, witnessed by “nobiles Gerolt filius eiusdem Eberhardi, Altman frater eius...[10].  “Eberhard” donated property “in vicu S---“ to [Münchsmünster] “in manum Altmanni eiusdem cenobii advocati”, for the burial and the soul of “fris sui Altmanni”, by charter dated to [1094][11].  “Nobilis femina...Wezila” donated property “in villa H---nilbach“ to [Münchsmünster], for the soul of “mariti ---Altmanni cenobialis advocati” on his anniversary, by charter dated 1095, witnessed by “Ebirhart de Razinhouin --- Eberhart ---cenobialis eiusdem Altmanni...[12].  m MATHILDE, daughter of --- (-after 1097).  “Eberhardus de Razinhovin cum matris sue Mathhilde fratrum suorum” donated property “ad Neftheinriuth“ to [Münchsmünster] “in manum advocati Heinrici”, for the burial of “patris sui Eberhardi”, by charter dated 1097, witnessed by “Purchart...[13].  "Nobilis matrona Mahthilt de Rœcenhouen" donated property “in loco Swarzolvesdorf” to Geisenfeld monastery "per manus filii sui Heberhardi advocati", for the soul of “mariti sui Heberhardi”, by undated charter[14].  Eberhard [III] & his wife had two children: 

a)         EBERHARD [IV] von Ratzenhofen .  “Eberhardus de Razinhovin cum matris sue Mathhilde fratrum suorum” donated property “ad Neftheinriuth“ to [Münchsmünster] “in manum advocati Heinrici”, for the burial of “patris sui Eberhardi”, by charter dated 1097, witnessed by “Purchart...[15].  Vogt of Kloster Geisenfeld.  "Nobilis matrona Mahthilt de Rœcenhouen" donated property “in loco Swarzolvesdorf” to Geisenfeld monastery "per manus filii sui Heberhardi advocati", for the soul of “mariti sui Heberhardi”, by undated charter[16]m [CHRISTIANA, daughter of ---.  "Christiana de Razehoven" entrusted “predium in Hazhoven” to “Ruoberti de Geisenvelt” so that, after her death, [possesses the said monastery of Eberhard] ("ut post terminum vite sue Eberhardi prefatum monasterium quiete possideat"), by undated charter[17].  This document appears to omit text, in particular the subject of “possideat” is difficult to identify.  The donor’s name and the reference to “Eberhardi” suggest a close connection with Eberhard [IV] von Ratzenhofen: maybe she was Eberhard’s wife.] 

b)         GEROLD .  Erchanger Abbot of Weihenstefan exchanged property with “Eberhardo de Razinhovan” by undated charter, witnessed by “nobiles Gerolt filius eiusdem Eberhardi, Altman frater eius...[18]

2.         ALTMANN von Ratzenhofen (-[1094]).  Erchanger Abbot of Weihenstefan exchanged property with “Eberhardo de Razinhovan” by undated charter, witnessed by “nobiles Gerolt filius eiusdem Eberhardi, Altman frater eius...[19].  “Eberhard” donated property “in vicu S---“ to [Münchsmünster] “in manum Altmanni eiusdem cenobii advocati”, for the burial and the soul of “fris sui Altmanni”, by charter dated to [1094][20]m WEZILA, daughter of --- (-after 1095).  “Nobilis femina...Wezila” donated property “in villa H---nilbach“ to [Münchsmünster], for the soul of “mariti ---Altmanni cenobialis advocati” on his anniversary, by charter dated 1095, witnessed by “Ebirhart de Razinhouin --- Eberhart ---cenobialis eiusdem Altmanni...[21].  Altmann & his wife had [two children]: 

a)         [ALTMANN (-[1094/97]).  Vogt of Münchsmünster.  “Eberhard” donated property “in vicu S---“ to [Münchsmünster] “in manum Altmanni eiusdem cenobii advocati”, for the burial and the soul of “fris sui Altmanni”, by charter dated to [1094][22].  His succession as Vogt of Münchsmünster suggests that he was the son of the older Altmann.] 

b)         [HEINRICH .  Vogt of Münchsmünster.  “Eberhardus de Razinhovin cum matris sue Mathhilde fratrum suorum” donated property “ad Neftheinriuth“ to [Münchsmünster] “in manum advocati Heinrici”, for the burial of “patris sui Eberhardi”, by charter dated 1097, witnessed by “Purchart...[23].  His succession as Vogt of Münchsmünster suggests that he was the brother of the younger Altmann.] 

 

 

Wegener shows Gebhard von Abensberg as the son of Eberhard [IV] von Ratzenhofen[24].  He cites no sources which confirm this parentage.  Europäische Stammtafeln shows the affiliation as possible[25].  The use of the names Altmann and Eberhard for Gebhard’s two sons indicates a family connection, but the relationship could have been through Gebhard’s wife.  Until more information comes to light, it is preferable to show Gebhard’s parentage as unknown. 

 

1.         GEBHARD von Abensberg .  [Vogt of Kloster Rohr.  Heinrich Bishop of Regensburg appointed “Geboarde” as “Rorensi ecclesia...advocatum” by charter dated 1138[26].]  “Gebehardus de Haebensperch...” witnessed the undated charter under which “Hernest de Scherenpach” donated property to Kloster Rohr[27].  Konrad Bishop of Regensburg recorded that “Gebhardum de Abensperg” had been appointed Vogt of Kloster Rohr, that “nepos prædicti Gebhardi...comes Meinhardus” had challenged the monastery’s privileges, and that “frater suus Bernherus” had succeeded as Vogt, by charter dated 19 Jan 1209[28]m SOPHIA, daughter of ---.  “Domina Sophia de Abensperch...cum filiis suis Altmanno et Eberhardo” donated property “apud Geunacher” to Kloster Rohr by undated charter[29].  A charter dated 1181 records that “nobilis matrona...Sophia de Abensperg” had donated serfs to Kloster St. Emmeran, annulled without her consent by “filius eius Eberhard” who later confirmed the donation for his mother’s soul, that “fratris eius Altmanni” invaded the monastery before a settlement of the dispute was agreed[30].  Gebhard & his wife had two children: 

a)         ALTMANN [I] von Abensberg (-after 1186).  “Domina Sophia de Abensperch...cum filiis suis Altmanno et Eberhardo” donated property “apud Geunacher” to Kloster Rohr by undated charter[31].  “...Comes Fridericus de Rietenburch...Marchio de Voheburch, Diepolt frater eius...Altman et Eberhardt de Abinesperch...” witnessed the charter dated 1171 under which Heinrich Duke of Bavaria and Saxony confirmed the donation of “prædii Hovehaim” to Kloster Admont[32].  A charter dated 1181 records that “nobilis matrona...Sophia de Abensperg” had donated serfs to Kloster St. Emmeran, annulled without her consent by “filius eius Eberhard” who later confirmed the donation for his mother’s soul, that “fratris eius Altmanni” invaded the monastery before a settlement of the dispute was agreed[33]Graf von Abensberg.  “Comes Diepoldus de Lechsgemunde, comes Arnoldus de Dachowe, comes Heinricus de Altindorf, comes Altmannus de Abinsperc et frater eius Eberhardus” witnessed the charter dated 1183 under which “domina Agnes vidua Ottonis ducis Bavariæ” consented to “filius suus Ludovicus dux...” donating property to Schyre, Ensdorf and Indersdorf[34].  Altmann was alive in 1186 as shown by the following document: “Ulricus vicedominus, Eberhardus frater comitis de Abinsperch” witnessed the charter dated 1186 which records that Waldsassen monastery incorporated “parochiam in Tursinruth” whose “patronatum” it already held[35]m ---.  The primary source which confirms the identity of Altmann’s wife has not been identified.  Altmann [I] & his wife had two children: 

i)          MEINHARD [I] von Abensberg (-before 18 Mar 1237).  Konrad Bishop of Regensburg recorded that “Gebhardum de Abensperg” had been appointed Vogt of Kloster Rohr, that “nepos prædicti Gebhardi...comes Meinhardus” had challenged the monastery’s privileges, and that “frater suus Bernherus” had succeeded as Vogt, by charter dated 19 Jan 1209[36]Graf von Rottenegg.  Siegfried Bishop of Regensburg recorded that “Meinhardo comite de Rotenek” had molested Kloster Rohr which had settled the dispute after his death with “filium eius comitem...Meinhardum” by charter dated 18 Mar 1237[37]

-         GRAFEN von ROTTENEGG

ii)         WERNHER von Abensberg .  Konrad Bishop of Regensburg recorded that “Gebhardum de Abensperg” had been appointed Vogt of Kloster Rohr, that “nepos prædicti Gebhardi...comes Meinhardus” had challenged the monastery’s privileges, and that “frater suus Bernherus” had succeeded as Vogt, by charter dated 19 Jan 1209[38]

b)         EBERHARD [von Abensberg] (-after 1186).  “Domina Sophia de Abensperch...cum filiis suis Altmanno et Eberhardo” donated property “apud Geunacher” to Kloster Rohr by undated charter[39].  “...Comes Fridericus de Rietenburch...Marchio de Voheburch, Diepolt frater eius...Altman et Eberhardt de Abinesperch...” witnessed the charter dated 1171 under which Heinrich Duke of Bavaria and Saxony confirmed the donation of “prædii Hovehaim” to Kloster Admont [40].  A charter dated 1181 records that “nobilis matrona...Sophia de Abensperg” had donated serfs to Kloster St. Emmeran, annulled without her consent by “filius eius Eberhard” who later confirmed the donation for his mother’s soul, that “fratris eius Altmanni” invaded the monastery before a settlement of the dispute was agreed[41].  “Comes Diepoldus de Lechsgemunde, comes Arnoldus de Dachowe, comes Heinricus de Altindorf, comes Altmannus de Abinsperc et frater eius Eberhardus” witnessed the charter dated 1183 under which “domina Agnes vidua Ottonis ducis Bavariæ” consented to “filius suus Ludovicus dux...” donating property to Schyre, Ensdorf and Indersdorf[42].  “Ulricus vicedominus, Eberhardus frater comitis de Abinsperch” witnessed the charter dated 1186 which records that Waldsassen monastery incorporated “parochiam in Tursinruth” whose “patronatum” it already held[43]

 

 

The precise relationship between the family von Stein and the Abensberg family has not been ascertained.  The brothers Otto and Ulrich von Abensberg (see below) are also called Otto and Ulrich von Stein in primary source documentation, indicating their inheritance of the Stein properties.  Wegener indicates that their mother was the daughter of Heinrich von Stein[44].  He cites no primary source which confirms this information.  It is assumed that the connection is speculative, although it would satisfactorily explain the transmission of Stein into the Abensberg family. 

 

1.         ULRICH [I] von Steinm BENEDICTA, daughter of ---.  “Nobilis matrona...Benedicta” donated “predium...Pezenpach” to Kloster Obermünster “per manum filii sui Alberti de Steine”, for the souls of “sue et mariti sui Ulrici de Steine”, by undated charter[45].  Ulrich [I] & his wife had one child: 

a)         ALBRECHT von Stein .  “Nobilis matrona...Benedicta” donated “predium...Pezenpach” to Kloster Obermünster “per manum filii sui Alberti de Steine”, for the souls of “sue et mariti sui Ulrici de Steine”, by undated charter[46]

 

2.         HEINRICH von Stein (-after 23 Sep 1220).  “Heinricus de Lapide, Ulricus filius eius, Heinricus de Randeke, Menhardus comes de Roteneke...Altmannus de Abensperch...” witnessed the charter dated 23 Sep 1220 under which Ludwig Pfalzgraf am Rhein divided the properties of Kloster Glink[47]m ---.  The name of Heinrich’s wife is not known.  Heinrich & his wife had one child: 

a)         ULRICH [II] von Stein .  “Heinricus de Lapide, Ulricus filius eius, Heinricus de Randeke, Menhardus comes de Roteneke...Altmannus de Abensperch...” witnessed the charter dated 23 Sep 1220 under which Ludwig Pfalzgraf am Rhein divided the properties of Kloster Glink[48]

 

 

Wegener indicates that Altmann [II] von Abensberg could “only be” the son of Wernher von Abensberg who is named above[49].  This suggestion is speculative and there must be other possibilities. 

 

1.         ALTMANN [II] von Abensberg (-after 23 Sep 1220).  “Heinricus de Lapide, Ulricus filius eius, Heinricus de Randeke, Menhardus comes de Roteneke...Altmannus de Abensperch...” witnessed the charter dated 23 Sep 1220 under which Ludwig Pfalzgraf am Rhein divided the properties of Kloster Glink[50]

 

 

No primary source has been identified which confirms the parentage of the brothers Otto and Ulrich von Abensberg.  Wegener indicates that they were the sons of Altmann [II] von Abensberg[51], but this is clearly speculative.  Heinrich Bishop of Regensburg (grandson of Meinhard [I] von Abensberg Graf von Rottenegg, see above) calls Otto von Abensberg his “patruus” in the charter dated 27 Feb 1285 quoted below.  The primary sources quoted below name three sons of Meinhard [I], without any indication that he had other sons.  The family relationship with the bishop of Regensburg was presumably more remote than “paternal uncle”.  It is likely therefore that Otto and Ulrich were descended from a brother of Meinhard [I].  No primary source has been found which suggests that they were the sons of Altmann [II] and the absence of the name Altmann among their descendants suggests that this descent is incorrect. 

 

1.         OTTO von Abensberg (-before 27 Feb 1285).  “Heinricus de Randecke” sold property to Regensburg St. Katharina “per manum legatoris nobilis viri Ottonis de Abensberch” by charter dated 7 Sep 1251, witnessed by “Otto et Ulricus fratres nobiles vires de Abensperch[52].  Herr von Stein.  “Nobiles de Stein Ottonem et Ulricum” settled a dispute with the church of Biburg, mentioning their joint possession of “castrum Abensperch”, by charter dated 13 Mar 1256[53].  “Otto de Stein et Ulrich dictus de Abensperch” granted the Vogteischaft “in Peising” to Kloster St. Emmeran by charter dated 1268[54].  Heinrich Bishop of Regensburg recorded that “nobilis vir Otto de Lapide piæ memoriæ noster patruus” held “de ecclesia Schamhaupten ratione advocatiæ”, that “Ulricus de Lapide patruelis noster” renounced rights in favour of Kloster Rohr on the day of burial of “prædicti Ottonis patris sui”, by charter dated 27 Feb 1285, sealed by “patrui nostri Ulrici de Abensperg”, witnessed by “...Wimmer de Abensperch[55]m --- von Moosburg, daughter of KONRAD [III] Graf von Moosburg & his wife ---.  Her parentage and marriage are confirmed by the charter dated 1284 under which Heinrich Bishop of Regensburg combined the churches of Semerskirchen and Sillsdorf, which had been in the patronage of “comites de Mosburch” whose properties “castrorum Mosburch et Rotenburch” were bought by Heinrich Duke of Bavaria, noting that "nobili viro Ulrico de Lapide filio sororis pie memorie Chuonradi comitis [Graf von Moosburg]" was the nearest heir to “prefato comite avunculo suo” and objected to the transaction but agreed a settlement of the dispute, sealed by “Ulrici de Lapide cum...sigillo...Ottonis patris sui de Lapide et Ulrici de Abensperch patrui sui[56].  Otto & his wife had one child:

2.         ULRICH [I] von Abensberg (-after [27 Mar or 24 Sep] 1299/1300).  “Heinricus de Randecke” sold property to Regensburg St. Katharina “per manum legatoris nobilis viri Ottonis de Abensberch” by charter dated 7 Sep 1251, witnessed by “Otto et Ulricus fratres nobiles vires de Abensperch[61].  “Nobiles de Stein Ottonem et Ulricum” settled a dispute with the church of Biburg, mentioning their joint possession of “castrum Abensperch”, by charter dated 13 Mar 1256[62].  “Otto de Stein et Ulrich dictus de Abensperch” granted the Vogteischaft “in Peising” to Kloster St. Emmeran by charter dated 1268[63].  “Chunradus...comes Mosburgensis” agreed the marriage between “militem nobilis viri Ulrici de Abensperch dictum Sne.” and “filiam Ulrici de Waechelchoven”, agreeing to divide the children of the marriage with “præfatum Ulricum de Abensperch”, by charter dated 21 May 1279[64].  “Ulricus dictus de Abensperch” notified his possession of “jurisdictionem advocatiæ...villam Gebriching...sitæ” by charter dated 23 Feb 1282[65].  Heinrich Bishop of Regensburg recorded that “nobilis vir Otto de Lapide piæ memoriæ noster patruus” held “de ecclesia Schamhaupten ratione advocatiæ”, that “Ulricus de Lapide patruelis noster” renounced rights in favour of Kloster Rohr on the day of burial of “prædicti Ottonis patris sui”, by charter dated 27 Feb 1285, sealed by “patrui nostri Ulrici de Abensperg”, witnessed by “...Wimmer de Abensperch[66].  “Ulricus dictus de Abensperch” reached agreement with Kloster Rohr “post obitum nobilium virorum patruorum nostrorum pie memorie...comitis Meynhardi advocati ecclesie Rorensis nec non fratris sui comitis Gebhardi” by charter dated 8 Feb 1287, witnessed by “Wernh. nobilis d.

B.      GRAFEN von ROTTENEGG

 

 

Rottenegg is located about 5 kilometres south-east of Geisenfeld, and about 25 kilometres south-east of Ingolstadt.  As shown below, the son of Altmann [I] Graf von Abensberg adopted the title Graf von Rottenegg in the early 13th century.  No indication has been found of earlier counts in the area and it is possible that the Abensberg family extended their existing comital title to Rottenegg, presumably another family property, without any formal creation by the Dukes of Bavaria.  One possibility is that Rottenegg was the dowry of the wife of Graf Meinhard [I], who has not otherwise been identified. 

 

 

MEINHARD [I] von Abensberg, son of ALTMANN [I] Graf von Abensberg & his wife --- (-before 18 Mar 1237).  Konrad Bishop of Regensburg recorded that “Gebhardum de Abensperg” had been appointed Vogt of Kloster Rohr, that “nepos prædicti Gebhardi...comes Meinhardus” had challenged the monastery’s privileges, and that “frater suus Bernherus” had succeeded as Vogt, by charter dated 19 Jan 1209[89]Graf von Rottenegg.  “Heinricus de Lapide, Ulricus filius eius, Heinricus de Randeke, Menhardus comes de Roteneke...Altmannus de Abensperch...” witnessed the charter dated 23 Sep 1220 under which Ludwig Pfalzgraf am Rhein divided the properties of Kloster Glink[90].  Siegfried Bishop of Regensburg recorded that “Meinhardo comite de Rotenek” had molested Kloster Rohr which had settled the dispute after his death with “filium eius comitem...Meinhardum” by charter dated 18 Mar 1237[91]

C.      MARKGRAFEN von VOHBURG

 

 

The Markgrafschaft von Nordgau in Bavaria, located along the Bavarian frontier with Bohemia, lost its military significance as relations with the kingdom of Bohemia improved.  After the death of Markgraf Diepold [III] in 1146, his sons retained the title "Markgraf" which they applied to their domains in Bavaria itself.  This provides an example of the apparently free-standing nature of titles such as Markgraf in Germany in the 11th and 12th centuries, and their transferability from one geographical entity to another with no need for imperial consent, other similar cases being the creation of the Markgrafschaft of Baden and the so-called duchy of Dachau, which had originated in the March of Verona and the duchy of Merano respectively. 

 

 

DIEPOLD [III] [von Giengen], son of DIEPOLD [II] von Giengen Markgraf im Nordgau & his wife Liutgarde von Zähringen (-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"[111].  The documents dated Feb 1111 relating to the coronation of Heinrich V King of Germany as emperor name "Fridericum filium sororis suæ, marchionem Engilbertum, marchionem Thiebaldus, comitem Hermannum, Fridericum palatinum comitem de Saxonia, Berlingarium de Bavaria, Godefridum comitem, Fridericum Saxonum, Albertum cancellarium, Cononem fratri Berengarii, Sigebot de Bavaria, Henricum ducem Carinthie, Bertoldum filium ducis Bertoldi" as the emperor's guarantors[112].  Markgraf von Nabburg 1118.  He founded Kloster Reichenbach in 1119.  A charter relates the founding of Kloster Reichenbach in 1118 by "Marchio Dietpaldus…ac nobilis rogatu matris sue Liucardus, consensus uxoris sue Adalheidis"[113]Markgraf von Vohburg [1120].  “...Marchio Dipoldus...” witnessed the donation of “predium Hovesteten” to Ensdorf made by “Pilgrimo de Ebermundestorf” by charter dated to [1129][114].  He founded the Cistercian monastery of Waldsassen in 1133.  Vogt von St Paul, Regensburg.  Markgraf von Cham 1144.  The necrology of Oberaltaich records the death "VI Id Apr" of "Dietpoldus marchio et m"[115].  The necrology of the Obermünster, Regensburg records the death "VI Id Apr" of "Dietpoldus marchio com"[116].  The necrology of Admont records the death "VI Id Apr" of "Diepoldus marchio"[117]

m firstly (before 1118) ADELAJDA of Poland, daughter of [WŁADYSŁAW I HERMAN Prince of Poland & his second wife Judith-Maria of Germany] ([1090/91]-25/26 Mar 1127).  The Notæ Genealogicæ Bavaricæ refers to the first wife of "Marchio Dietpoldus" as "de Polonia"[118].  The primary source which confirms her parentage more specifically has not yet been identified.  She is not one of Władysław's daughters referred to in the Chronicæ Polanorum[119].  The Fundatio Monasterii Richenbacensis names "Adelheidis" as wife of "marchio Dietpaldus" in connection with the foundation of Reichenbach[120].  The necrology of Admont records the death "VIII Kal Mar" of "Adelheit marchyonissa"[121]

m thirdly ZSÓFIA [of Hungary, daughter of ---].  She is named “Sophia” in Europäische Stammtafeln[124], but the source on which this is based has not been identified.  The Notæ Genealogicæ Bavaricæ refers to the third wife of "Marchio Dietpoldus" as "sororem Stephani comitis Ungarie", although it does not name her[125].  It is not known to whom this refers.  The only known "István" at this time in the Hungarian royal family was King István II, son of King Kálmán, who died in 1131.  No other reference has been found to a king of Hungary being referred to as "comes Ungarie".  However, there are only isolated references to other noble families in Hungary at the time, which suggests that István and Zsófia may have been children of a younger son of one of the Hungarian kings. 

Diepold [III] & his first wife had four children: 

1.         DIEPOLD [IV] (-[1128]).  The Notæ Genealogicæ Bavaricæ names "filium…Diepoldum et quatuor filias" as children of "Marchio Dietpoldus" and his wife "de Polonia"[126]Markgraf von Vohburgm as her first husband, MATHILDE of Bavaria, daughter of HEINRICH IX "dem Schwarzen" Duke of Bavaria [Welf] & his wife Wulfhild of Saxony (-16 Feb or 16 Mar [1183], bur Kastl).  The Historia Welforum names (in order) "Iuditham, Sophiam, Mahtildem, Wulfildem" as the four daughters of "Heinricus dux ex Wulfilde", specifying that Mathilde married firstly "Theopaldo filio Theopaldi marchionis de Voheburch" and secondly "Gebehardo de Sulzbach"[127].  The Annalista Saxo names "Heinricum inclitum ducem Saxonie et Bawarie et Welfonem et quatuor filias" children of Duke Heinrich & his wife Wulfhild, specifying that "Quarta Machtildis nomine" married firstly "Thieppoldo iuniori, filio Thieppoldi marchionis senioris" and secondly "Gebehardus filius Beringeri comitis de Sulzbach"[128].  She married secondly ([24 Oct 1129]) Gebhard [III] Graf von Sulzbach.  Diepold [IV] & his wife had [one] child:

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][202].  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"[203], but this appears to be inaccurate.  The Vita Wirntonis names "Eckebertus comes, avo suo Thymone"[204].  "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[205].  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[206].  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…"[207].   "Heinricus…Romanorum imperator augustus" confirmed market and customs rights "in villa Helmgerisberk…in comitatu Theimonis" to Kloster Niedaltaich by charter dated 19 Feb 1049[208].  The Codex Traditionum of Formbach monastery records that "domna Hymildrud...matrona" appointed “Tiemonem comitem in advocatum sibi” in respect of “villam...Cheminata...” and that later “Eckebertus comes quarto loco a prenominato avo suo Thymone” became adviser[209].  The Codex Traditionum of Formbach monastery records that "bone memorie Odalricus de Windeperge frater domni Herimanni" donated “partem ecclesie sancti Martini” as “Thiemo avus suus” had exchanged with Egilbert Bishop of Passau (who had permitted the burial of “comes Thiemo” in the church), with the consent of “fratrueles Ekkeberti Dietricus et Gebehardus[210].  Wegener dates this exchange of property to [1045/50][211].  The necrology of the Niedermünster at Regensburg records the death "Non Mar" of "Diemar com"[212]

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"[213]

-        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"[214].  "Chunigundæ imperatricis augustæ" donated property to the church of Freising by charter dated 1025, witnessed by "…Tiemo comes…Heinrih filius Tiemonis comitis…"[215]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"[216].  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"[217]

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"[218], and the second the same source which records a dispute with Suben monastery and names "due…sorores Touta et Himildrud…nobilissimis"[219].  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[220].  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[221] 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"[222]).  He bases his argument on connections with the monastery of Suben founded in 1040.   He explains[223] 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"[224], 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"[225].  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[226]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"[227], and the second the same source which records a dispute with Suben monastery and names "due…sorores Touta et Himildrud…nobilissimis"[228].  The basis for assuming that "Hesso" is the same person as "Heinrich [I]" is unclear.  She founded Kollegiatstift Vornbach before 1050.  1070.]

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"[234]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[235].  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"[236].  Graf Friedrich & his wife had one child: 

a)         HEDWIG (-[1090/93]).  The Vita Wirntonis names "Fridericus" as father of "Hedwigis, mater Lotharii regis"[237].  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[238].  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"[239], 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[240], Duke Simon was the son of his father's first wife Hedwig.  Poull[241] 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 (-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"[242], 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].  This is confirmed by Meginhard’s son Ulrich naming his supposed father Thiemo [I] his “avus” in the source quoted below.] 

-        GRAFEN von RATELBERG und WINDBERG

 

 

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"[243].  According to the 14th century Genealogia comitum Neuburgensium sive Formbacensium, "Tiemo senior genuit iuniorem Tiemonem, Hermannum Bambergensem prepositum, Dietricum clericum, Fridericum, Heinricum"[244].  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[245]

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[246], 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[247], 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"[248]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[249].  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][250], 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"[251] which suggests the separate existence of Reginhard.  If this is correct, the only link with this family is broken.  According to Europäische Stammtafeln[252], 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"[253].  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"[254].  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][255].  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[256].  This suggestion must be considered highly speculative.  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"[257].  Wegener refers to a donation dated [1074] witnessed by "comes Ekkebertus et puer Gebehardus nepos eius"[258].  Wegener refers to a donation by brothers Gebhard and Dietrich to Göttweig after the death of their mother Adelheid dated [1090][259]Graf von Formbach.  Wegener refers to a donation to Göttweig by Dietrich brother of Graf Gebhard for the soul of the latter dated [1105][260]

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[261]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"[262].  Wegener refers to a donation by brothers Gebhard and Dietrich to Göttweig after the death of their mother Adelheid dated [1090][263].  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"[264].  The necrology of Seeon records the death "III Kal Dec" of "Dietricus com"[265].  The necrology of Scheftlarn records the death "III Kal Dec" of "Dietricus com"[266].  The necrology of Melk records the death "II Kal Dec" of "Dietricus com"[267]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"[268].  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[269].  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"[270].  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][271].  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"[272], 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[273].  "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][274].  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"[275]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"[276].  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[277].  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"[278]same person as…?   IDA von Ratelberg (-Asia Minor [Sep] 1101 or after).  According to Europäische Stammtafeln[279], 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[280].  Albert of Aix records that "Willelmus comes et princeps Pictaviensium, de sanguine et origine Henrici tertii imperatoris Romanorum" crossed Hungary peacefully with "duce Bawariorum Welfone et…comitissa…Ida de marchia Osterrich", entered the territory of the Bulgars in which "duce Bulgarorum Guz" refused their passage into Adrianople, when "Rodulfus…de Scegonges ortus, cognatus ipsius Willelmi principis" was killed and "Hardewinus…de Sancto Medardo" captured, undated but in a passage adjacent to text which records events in 1101[281].  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[282].  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"[283]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"[284].  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"[285]Graf von Formbach [1070].  “...Ekkebertus comes de Formbahc...” witnessed the charter dated to [1073] under which “Ernestus Austriæ marchio” donated revenue from “prædium...in Wykendorff” to Kloster Melk[286].  The Annales Reicherspergenses record that in 1078, during the war between Rudolf von Rheinfelden and Emperor Heinrich IV, the latter destroyed "Niwenburch castrum"[287].  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"[288].  The Codex Traditionum of Formbach monastery records a donation by "domnus Ekkebertus comes", witnessed by "Ekkeberti et Eberhardi filiorum Ekkeberti comitis…"[289].  The Annales Reicherspergenses record the death in 1109 of "Ekkebetus comes"[290]

[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[291].] 

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"[292].  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"[293].  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[294]

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

1.         EBERHARD (-4 May [1100]).  According to the 14th century Genealogia comitum Neuburgensium sive Formbacensium, "Ekkebertus genuit Dietmarum, Eberhardum, Ekkebertum iuniorem, Gotfridum monachum, Chunigundam"[295].  The Codex Traditionum of Formbach monastery records a donation by "domnus Ekkebertus comes", witnessed by "Ekkeberti et Eberhardi filiorum Ekkeberti comitis…"[296].  The necrology of Oberaltaich records the death "IV Non Mai" of "Eberhardus com"[297]m ---.  The name of Eberhard's wife is not known.  Graf Eberhard & his wife had [one child]: 

a)         [LEOPOLD .  “Comes Ekkebertus” donated property to Formbach, with the consent of “Willebirga et filia ipsorum Chunigunda”, by undated charter, witnessed by “...Liupoldus troie[298].  Wegener dates this charter to [1120] and identifies the witness as the son of Eberhard[299].  In prison [1120].] 

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

2.         EKBERT [II] (-24 Nov 1144).  According to the 14th century Genealogia comitum Neuburgensium sive Formbacensium, "Ekkebertus genuit Dietmarum, Eberhardum, Ekkebertum iuniorem, Gotfridum monachum, Chunigundam"[300].  The Codex Traditionum of Formbach monastery records a donation by "domnus Ekkebertus comes", witnessed by "Ekkeberti et Eberhardi filiorum Ekkeberti comitis…"[301].  “Comes Ekkebertus” donated property to Formbach, with the consent of “Willebirga et filia ipsorum Chunigunda”, by undated charter[302].  Wegener dates this charter to [1120][303].  Graf von Pitten 1120/1142.  "Conradus…Romanorum rex secundus" granted the right to market and minting coins in Dorf Neunkirchen to "consanguinei nostri Ekkerbti comitis" by charter dated [Jun/Jul] 1141[304].  The Annales Reicherspergenses record the death in 1144 of "Ekkebertus comes"[305].  The necrology of St Lambert records the death "VIII Kal Dec" of "Ekkebertus com et m"[306].  The necrology of Oberaltaich records the death "VIII Kal Dec" of "Eggibertus conversus et monachus comes"[307]m (before 1120) WILLIBIRG, daughter of --- (-18 Jan [1145]).  The Codex Traditionum of Formbach monastery records a donation by "comes Eckebertus" of "cappellam…in castello Niuwenburch" to "Fornbacensi cenobio", with the consent of "coniuge sua Williberga"[308].  “Comes Ekkebertus” donated property to Formbach, with the consent of “Willebirga et filia ipsorum Chunigunda”, by undated charter[309].  Wegener dates this charter to [1120][310].  The Codex Traditionum of Formbach monastery records a donation by "Comes Ekkebertus", with the consent of "Willebirga et filia ipsorum Chunigunda"[311].  Wegener suggests that she was Willibirg of Styria, daughter of Otakar II Markgraf of Styria & his wife Elisabeth of Austria [Babenberg], because of the connection of this name with the family of the Markgrafen of Styra, and also in order to explain why Otakar III Markgraf of Styria added Pitten to his territories after 1158.  The Codex Traditionum of Formbach monastery records a donation by "Willibirga relicta comitis Ekkeberti…cum filio suo iuniore Ekkeberto"[312].  She became a nun at Admont.  The necrology of Admont records the death "VI Id Jan" of "Willibirch con na excoma de Puten"[313].  The necrology of Traunkirchen records the death "XII Kal Jan" of "Wilbirgis com"[314], which may refer to this Willibirg.  The necrology of St Lambert records the death "VIII Kal Feb" of "Willibirch com"[315], which may refer to this Willibirg.  Graf Ekbert [II] & his wife had three children: 

a)         EKBERT [III] (-killed in battle Milan 5 Aug 1158, bur Vornbach).  According to the 14th century Genealogia comitum Neuburgensium sive Formbacensium, "Ekkebertus iunior de se progenuit item Ekkebertum", was killed in battle in Milan fighting for Emperor Friedrich I and was buried at Formbach with "pater eius et avus eius et sororius eius dux Dalmacie et marchio Istrie Pertoldus"[316].  The Codex Traditionum of Formbach monastery records a donation by "Willibirga relicta comitis Ekkeberti…cum filio suo iuniore Ekkeberto"[317].  Graf von Pitten 1148.  Graf von Neuburg 1151.  The Vita Wirntonis records that "comes Eckebertus" was killed at Milan in 1160, specifying that he was "huius ecclesiæ fundator" and was buried at Vornbach[318].  The Annales Reicherspergenses record that "Ekkebertus comes de Putine" was killed at Milan "1158 Non Aug"[319].  The necrology of Traunkirchen records the death "Non Aug" of "Erbertus com"[320]

b)         MATHILDE (-7 Nov [1160]).  The primary source which confirms her parentage and marriage has not yet been identified.  m as his first wife, BERTHOLD [II] Graf von Bogen, son of ADALBERT [I] Graf von Bogen & his second wife Hedwig von Windberg (-21 Mar 1167).

B.      GRAFEN von MOOSBURG

 

 

 

BURKHARD [I], son of --- .  Wegener suggests that Burkhard [I] was the son of Graf Bucco, younger brother of Heinrich von Schweinfurt[327].  "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[328]

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

Burkhard [I] & his wife had [four] 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"[329], and the source cited by Wegener which refers to Archbishop Berthold "filius quondam Purchardi"[330].  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…"[331].  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

i)          UTO .  "Fridericus...Suevorum et Alsacie dux" donated “decimam...in parrochia...Walehusen” to Kloster Odenheim, in exchange for property donated by "Gertrudis soror nostra...contectalis Heremanni comitis de Stahelekke", by charter dated 1143, witnessed by “...Uto et Albertus fratres de Mosaburch...[348].  Wegener shows Uto as the son of his father’s first marriage, presumably based on the similarity of his name to Udalschalk, possible father of Burkhard [IV]’s first wife[349].     

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][350].  "…Adalpreht de Mosepurch…" witnessed a charter dated to [1130] donating property to the monastery of Au[351].  Vogt von St Castulus [1145].

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"[371].  The necrology of Seligenthal records the death "XVII Kal Mai" of "Albertus com de Mosburch"[372]m [MATHILDE, daughter of --- (-30 Oct ----).  The necrology of Seligenthal records the death "III Kal Nov" of "Machtild von Mooburch"[373].  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:

D.      GRAFEN im TRAUNGAU

 

 

The relationships between the early Grafen im Traungau are uncertain, as shown below.  Wegener attempts a reconstruction[429].  Another possible outline, different in the details, is shown in Europäische Stammtafeln[430].  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. 

 

 

1.         ULRICH [I]  (-after 8 May 860).  "Hludouuicus…rex" donated property "in comitatu Odolrici" to Kloster Mattsee by charter dated 8 May 860[431]

1.         MEGINHARD [II] (-after [947/55]).  Wegener refers to a document dated 30 Mar 930 relating to property "im Traungau in der Grafschaft des Meginhard"[438], although this could alternatively refer to Meginhard [I].  The De Advocatis Altahensibus names "tempore Heinrici ducis Meinhardus comes fuit advocatus" specifying that "hic habuit fratrem Ulricum comitem"[439], referring to Heinrich I Duke of Bavaria from 947-955.  Graf, Vogt von Niederaltaich.

a)         BERTHOLD .  Wegener refers to Graf Berthold, son of Graf Ulrich, transferring his bondsman Rihgart on his deathbead into the hands of his son Graf Tiemo by charter dated [1000/05][443].  Wegener refers to the donation by Babo Burggraf von Regensburg & his wife Mehtild to St Emmeram dated [1000/05] for their souls and that of his wife's brother Perahtold, which also names her mother Kunigunde[444].  Graf 1000/1005.  m ---.  The name of Berthold's wife is not known.  Graf Berthold & his wife had one child:

b)         MATHILDE .  "Papo urbis præfectus cum conjuge sua Mahthilda" donated property "prædium Gunduneshusa quod fuit eidem Mahthildæ ex largitione matris eius Chunigundæ" to Regensburg St Emmeram by charter dated [996] "pro remedio animarum…Pabonis et Mahtildæ, ac fratris eius Perhtoldi"[446]m [as his third wife,] BABO [I] Graf [von Regensburg], son of --- (-[1002]). 

3.         [HERMANN .  Wegener refers to an exchange of property im Schweinachgau und im Rottgau dated [947/70] witnessed by (in order) "Odalrich, Heriman, Meginhart", suggesting that the three witnesses were brothers[447].] 

 

 

1.         MEGINHARD [III] (-after [985/991]).  Wegener refers to an exchange of property at Winkeln and Ottenham dated [963] witnessed by "Meginhard comes"[448], although this could alternatively refer to Graf Meginhard [II].  Wegener refers to Heinrich II Duke of Bavaria establishing rights in the Ostmark by charter dated [963] witnessed by "Meginhart comes, Papo comes…Tiemo comes, Perhtolt"[449], although this could alternatively refer to Graf Meginhard [II].  Wegener refers to Pilgrim Bishop of Passau confirmed the rights of the bishopric between Enns and Wiener Wald by charter dated [985/91], the first witnesses being "Meginhart comes, Pabo comes"[450]

 

2.         MEGINHARD [IV] (-[1030] or after).  Vogt von Niederaltaich [1020].  Wegener refers to the widow of Himildrud donating property to St Emmeram, reserving rights to her son Herimann, dated [1030], the first witness being "Meginhart comes"[451]

 

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[452].  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][453], 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)[454].  Christian Bishop of Passau and "comes Arnolf" settled a dispute concerning a disputed wood by charter dated to [993][455].  Graf im Rotagau.  The necrology of Lambach records the death "Kal Mar" of "Arnolfus com avus ep Alberonis"[456]

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"[459].  On the other hand, the necrology of Diessen records the death "Feb XVI Kal" of "Irmilgardis, mater domini Perchtoldi"[460], 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][461].  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"[462].  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"[463]

3.         GEBHARD [I] (-4 Dec 1164).  Pope Innocent III took Kloster Michaelbeuren under his protection 7 Jun 1137 at the request of Gräfin Ida and her sons Grafen Gebehard and Sigehard, nephews of Emperor Lothar[532]Graf von Burghausen [1129].  The Codex Traditionum of Formbach monastery records a donation by "Sirus qui et Sigehardus Comes de Scala et eius consors…domna Sophia…cum filio suo Henrico", for the soul of "prioris mariti sui Karinthiorum quondam ducis Heinrici", witnessed by "Gebehardus comes de Purchusen frater eius, Heinricus filius ipsius Sighardi comitis…"[533].  The necrology of Michaelbeuern records the death "II Non Dec" of "Gebhardus com"[534].  The Liber sepulturarum of Raitenhaslach monastery records the burial there in 1155 of "Gebhardus Comes de Burghausen, gentis ultimus. Sophia uxor eius"[535].  The Annales Sancti Rudberti Salisburgenses record the death in 1164 of "Gebhardus de Burchousen"[536]m ([1144]) SOPHIE von Wettin, daughter of KONRAD I "der Grosse" Graf von Wettin, Brehna, Camburg und Eilenburg, Markgraf der Ober- und Niederlausitz & his wife Luitgard von Elchingen (-16 Apr after 1190).  The Genealogica Wettinensis names (in order) "Odam et Bertam abbatissam Gerbestadensem, Agnetam Quidelingenburgensem abbatissam, quarta…Gerdrudis…quinta Adela…sexta Sophia" as the six daughters of "Conradus Misnensis et Orientalius marchio [filius Thiemonis]" & his wife, naming "Gebehardo comiti de Bavaria, filio sororis Luderi imperatoris" as husband of Sophie[537].  "Gebhardus…comes de Burchusen cum…coniuge mea Sophia" donated property to Raitenhaslach by charter dated 1156, witnessed by "Comes Sighardus, Comes Hainricus de Schalkach…"[538].  The necrology of Michaelbeuern records the death "XVI Kal May" of "Sophia com de Burchusen"[539].  Graf Gebhard [I] & his wife had three children: 

a)         GEBHARD [II] (-1 May 1168).  Wegener records that "Sophia comitissa" donated property to Michaelbeuern for the soul of her son who was buried there[540]Graf von Burghausen.  The necrology of Michaelbeuern records the death "Kal May" of "Gebhardus com"[541]

b)         IDA (-28 Jan after 1210).  Wegener refers to the confirmation by Walther Abbot of Michaelbeuern of a donation by Gräfin Sophia before the marriage of her daughter to Graf Liupold[542].  Wegener refers to a donation to Raitenhaslach by Gräfin Ida von P with her sons dated [1195], witnessed by "Hainricus comes, Luitoldus et Gebehardus comites"[543].  Wegener refers to a donation by Gräfin Ida von Pleien to Kloster Michaelbeuern with her sons Graf Lutold and Gebehard canon at Passau cathedral[544].  The necrology of Michaelbeuern records the death "VII Kal Jan" of "Ita com"[545]m ([1164]) LUITPOLD Graf von Plain, son of LIUTOLD [I] Graf von Plain & his second wife Uta von Peilstein (-17 Jun [1193]).  Graf von Hardegg 1188. 

c)         LIUTGARD (-24 Feb [1195]).  The primary source which confirms her parentage has not yet been identified.  The De Advocatis Altahensibus names "Leutkarde" as wife of "Perhtoldum [comes]"[546].  A charter dated 1168 records the death of "Perhtoldus comes de Pogene" and the donation to Admont by "uxor…illius Liukart"[547].  "Albertus filius Bertholdi comitis de Bogen" donated property to Kloster Viktring, with the advice of "Lewcardis genitrix mea", by charter dated 1171[548].  The necrology of Michaelbeuern records the death "VI Kal Mar" of "Laichardis com de Pogen"[549].  The necrology of Windberg records the death "VI Kal Mar" of "Liukardis ex coma cva sor n"[550]m ([1164]) as his second wife, BERTHOLD [II] Graf von Bogen, son of ADALBERT [I] Graf von Bogen & his second wife Hedwig von Windberg (-21 Mar 1167). 

 

 

1.         HEINRICH [III] (-12 Apr ----).  Graf von Burghausen.  The necrology of Michaelbeuern records the death "II Id Apr" of "Heinricus com de Purchusen"[551].  His parentage is not known.  He could not have been the son of either Graf Sieghard [IX] or Graf Sieghard [X], the deaths of whose sons named Heinrich are recorded in the necrology of Michaelbeuern on other dates.  He may have been the son either of Graf Heinrich [I] or of Graf Gebhard [I]. 

 

 

 

C.      GRAFEN von DACHAU

 

 

 

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"[552], 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[553].  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[554] and there seems little reason why another adult son should have been omitted.  Europäische Stammtafeln[555] 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"[556].  According to Wegener, her father was Graf an der oberen Ampar, which later became the Grafschaft Dachau so she was the heiress who passed this property to her husband[557].  The necrology of Undensdorf records the death "III Id Feb" of "Beatrix coma"[558]

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"[559].  Otto Bishop of Freising confirmed an exchange of property, confirmed by “Otto Palatinus comes senior et filius eius Otto”, by undated charter, witnessed by “...Chunrat de Dahhove...Purchart de Moseburch...[560]Graf von Dachau.  The necrology of Undensdorf records the death "Non Dec" of "Chunradus com"[561]m WILLIBIRG, daughter of --- (-11 Jan or 23 Sep ----).  The primary source which confirms her marriage has not yet been identified.  According to Wegener[562], 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"[563].  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[564].  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"[565].  "Oudilhilt eius vidua" donated property to the monastery of Scheyern after the burial there of "Chounrado Duce de Dachawe"[566]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[567].  "Chuno de Horberch…cum uxore sua Adelheit" donated property to Osterhove monastery[568].  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"[569].  "Machtildis Ducissa de Dachaue…cum filio suo Conrado" donated property to Undensdorf monastery, witnessed by "Arnoldus Comes de Dachau et Chunradus puer filius Conradi…"[570].  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"[571].  "Machtildis Ducissa de Dachaue…cum filio suo Conrado" donated property to Undensdorf monastery, witnessed by "Arnoldus Comes de Dachau et Chunradus puer filius Conradi…"[572]Graf von Dachau, Duke of Merano.  “Conradus junior dux de Dachowwe...per manum patrui sui Arnoldi comitis tunc advocati et tutoris prænominati ducis” confirmed that “Fritilonis de Isimannigne...in manum comitis Conradi de Valeje” had donated property to Freising by undated charter, witnessed by “Friderich Palatinus comes et frater eius Otto junior, comes Bertholdus, Heinricus Ratisponensis urbis præfectus...[573].  The Annales Schaftlarienses record the death of "Chounradus dux de Dachau" in 1182[574].  The necrology of Undensdorf records the death "VIII Id Oct" of "Chunradus dux de Dachawe"[575]m UDELHILDE, daughter of ---.  The Chronicon Schirense names "Oudilhilde" as widow of "Chonradus"[576]

b)         ARNOLD von Dachau (-1 Nov, after 1185).  The Chronicon Schirense names (in order) "Arnoldum et Chounradum" as the two sons of "Chounradus"[577]Graf von Dachau 1156-1172.  “Conradus junior dux de Dachowwe...per manum patrui sui Arnoldi comitis tunc advocati et tutoris prænominati ducis” confirmed that “Fritilonis de Isimannigne...in manum comitis Conradi de Valeje” had donated property to Freising by undated charter, witnessed by “Friderich Palatinus comes et frater eius Otto junior, comes Bertholdus, Heinricus Ratisponensis urbis præfectus...[578].  "Machtildis Ducissa de Dachaue…cum filio suo Conrado" donated property to Undensdorf monastery, witnessed by "Arnoldus Comes de Dachau et Chunradus puer filius Conradi…"[579].  “Comes Diepoldus de Lechsgemunde, comes Arnoldus de Dachowe, comes Heinricus de Altindorf, comes Altmannus de Abinsperc et frater eius Eberhardus” witnessed the charter dated 1183 under which “domina Agnes vidua Ottonis ducis Bavariæ” consented to “filius suus Ludovicus dux...” donating property to Schyre, Ensdorf and Indersdorf[580].  The necrology of Undensdorf records the death "Kal Nov" of "Arnoldus com"[581]

D.      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[585].  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[586], 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[587].  "Razo comes" heads a long list of family members associated with the monastery of Diessen which is also included in the De Fundatoribus[588].  The necrology of Diessen records the death "Jun XIII Kal" of "Raze com qui cenobium in Werde construxit"[589]

 

 

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"[590], 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][591].  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"[592], 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[593].  Wegener refers to "Fridericus comes, Dietricus comes" witnessing a charter relating to land at Weiher, near Wasserburg, dated [1010/20][594]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"[595].  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"[596].  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"[597].  On the other hand, the Chronico Eberspergense names "Rihcardem sororem Marhwardi presidis de Carinthia"[598].  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"[599]

 

2.         DIETRICH (-[1010/20] or after).  Wegener refers to "comes Dietricus" named in a charter dated [1003/12][600].  "...Dietricus comes qui dedit Pfans..." witnessed the undated charter under which “comes...Arnoldus” donated property “in villa Taerzina” to Kloster Benediktbeuren dated [1015][601].  Wegener dates this document to [1015][602].  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[603]

 

 

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[604].  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[605].  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[606].  [“Comes...Friderich” donated “molendinam...in pago Prisingine” to Kloster Obermünster by undated charter, witnessed by “salaman, comes Friderich et filius eius Friderich...[607].  Wegener dates this document to [1030][608]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…"[609].   Wegener quotes a reference to "comes Perhtoldus de Diezan" dated [1050][610]Graf von Diessen.  Wegener quotes a reference to "Otto son of Graf Perhtold" dated 16 May 1060[611]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[612].  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[613].  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"[614]

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[615].  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][616]m [as his first wife,] HERMANN [I] Graf von Poigen, son of ---.] 

b)         OTTO [I] von Diessen (-17 Jan [1057/62 or after]).  Wegener quotes a reference to "Otto filius Friderici" dated [1027][617]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"[618] 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[619]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[620].  The necrology of St Lambert records the death "VI Kal Mar" of "Beatrix fundatrix h l"[621]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).  [“Comes...Friderich” donated “molendinam...in pago Prisingine” to Kloster Obermünster by undated charter, witnessed by “salaman, comes Friderich et filius eius Friderich...[622].  Wegener dates this document to [1030][623].] 

-        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[624] 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[625]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[626].  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][627].  The necrology of Salzburg St Rudpert records the death "X Kal Nov" of "Pilhilt com"[628]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[629].  According to Europäische Stammtafeln[630], 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[631].  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).  [“Comes...Friderich” donated “molendinam...in pago Prisingine” to Kloster Obermünster by undated charter, witnessed by “salaman, comes Friderich et filius eius Friderich...[632].  Wegener dates this document to [1030][633].]  Wegener identifies Friedrich with Friedrich Domvogt von Regensburg named in [1035][634].  "Heinricus…Romanorum imperator augustus" granted property "in loco Lanthartesdorf in comitatu Friderici comitis" to Kloster Ebersberg by charter dated 13 Mar 1055[635].  "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[636]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"[637].  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"[638], 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[639], 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"[640], 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"[641], 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[642].  The Vita Sancti Marini et Anniani names "Chonradus alias Chuno comes palatinus" as founder of the monastery of Rott immediately followed by "Werta fundatrix"[643], implying that the latter was Kuno's wife.  The necrology of Seeon records the death "V Id Feb" of "Uta"[644], 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[645].  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"[646].  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"[647]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[648].  The relationship is confirmed by the necrology of Diessen recording the death "Mar VIII Kal" of "Gisila com uxor comitis Arnoldi"[649].  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[650], 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[651], citing in support the Kastler Reimchronik of [1323/24] according to which Sophie, daughter of "Graf Otto", married a Graf von Andechs[652].  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[653].  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[654] 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"[655].  On the other hand, the necrology of Diessen records the death "Feb XVI Kal" of "Irmilgardis, mater domini Perchtoldi"[656], 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. 

-        GRAFEN von ANDECHS

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)[657], 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]).] 

2.         [HEMMA .  Wegener refers to a source dated [1105] which names Graf Arnold as avunculus of Walter Graf von Chling junior, suggesting that the mother of the latter was Arnold's sister[658]m WALTER [von Chling].] 

3.         BERTHOLD [II] (-[1100] or after).  Wegener cites a reference to "Chounradus clericus de Jaubisperc germanus Perhtoldi comitis de Andehse senioris" dated [1095][659], and a reference to "Perhtolt de Andehse, Liupolt de Dieze" dated [1100][660].  [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[661].  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[662].   "Perhtoldus Comes et eius patruus Chonradus de Iagobesberg" donated a serf to Weihenstefan monastery, dated to [1097/1114][663].  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"[664].  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"[665].  The necrology of Seeon records the death "X Kal Feb" of "Fridericus com"[666], 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"[667], 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. 

 

 

 

E.      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[668], 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[669].  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"[670].  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?][671].  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[672].  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"[673]

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"[674].  The Chronico Eberspergensi Posteriore names "comes Sighardus" in Bavaria specifying that he was "de genere regum [Karlomanni filii Ludwici Regis]"[675].  "Arnolfus…rex" gave a chapel at Ebersberg to "comes noster…Sigihart" by charter dated 1 Jan 888[676].  "Arnolfus…imperator augustus" gave land in "comitatu Regingarii…Chaganinga" to "comiti et propinquo nostro…Sigihardo" by charter dated 8 Jul 896[677].  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[678].  "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"[679], 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[680].  The necrology of Ebersberg records the death "VI Id Oct" of "Sigihardus com pater Ratoldi"[681]m GOTINA, daughter of --- (-20 Dec 906, bur Freising).  According to Europäische Stammtafeln[682], 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[683].  The necrology of Ebersberg records the death "XIII Kal Dec" of "Cotini com uxor Sigihardi"[684].  Graf Sieghard [II] & his wife had two children: 

a)         RATOLD [I] (-20 Jan 919, bur Salzburg St Amand).  The Chronico Eberspergensi Posteriore names "Ratoldus…Sighardi filius" specifying that he possessed "Eberspengensi castri"[685].  Markgraf in der Kärtner Mark.

a)         KUNO von Megelingen (-before [1180]).  "Chuno Iunior de Megelingen…" witnessed a charter dated to [1130] donating property to the monastery of Au[805].  "Advocato Chuonone…Advocati filius Chuono" witnessed a charter dated 1130 which records a donation of property to the monastery of Au[806].  A charter dated to [1130] records the donation to Au monastery by "magne nobilitatis homines Chuono et uxor eius Hiltigardis", with the consent of "filii sui Chuononis suarumque filiarum et uxoris"[807].  [“Nobilis homo Chono de Megelingen cum uxore sua Sophia et filiabus Willeberch et Hiltegart” donated “predium...Hessenpach” to Berchtesgaden by undated charter, witnessed by “...Arnold de Megelingen...”[808].  It is uncertain whether this charter refers to the same Kuno von Megelingen who is named in the other documents quoted in this section.]  Graf von Megelingen.  A charter dated to [1150] names "Advocato et Comite Chuonone de Megelingen" as present at a donation to Au monastery[809].  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"[810].  The necrology of Au monastery names "Cuno de Megdling et Alhaydis Comes de Eppan coniux eius" as benefactors of the monastery[811].  [m firstly SOPHIE, daughter of ---.  [“Nobilis homo Chono de Megelingen cum uxore sua Sophia et filiabus Willeberch et Hiltegart” donated “predium...Hessenpach” to Berchtesgaden by undated charter, witnessed by “...Arnold de Megelingen...”[812].  It is uncertain whether this charter refers to the same Kuno von Megelingen who is named in the other documents quoted in this section.]  m [secondly] [as her second husband,] ADELHEID von Eppen, [widow of ---,] daughter of --- (-before 1210).  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…"[813].  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"[814].  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.  A charter dated 1210 records a donation by "pia memoria…Cometissa de Meglingen Domina Alhaydis…cum filio suo Chuonone" to the monastery of Au which names "Comes Egeno de Eppan…dicte Cometisse frater et filius eius Udalricus et Gotfridus cum matre ipsorum Domina Irmgarde"[815].  The necrology of Au monastery names "Cuno de Megdling et Alhaydis Comes de Eppan coniux eius" as benefactors of the monastery[816].  [Kuno & his first wife had two children:]

ii)         [HILDEGARD .  “Nobilis homo Chono de Megelingen cum uxore sua Sophia et filiabus Willeberch et Hiltegart” donated “predium...Hessenpach” to Berchtesgaden by undated charter, witnessed by “...Arnold de Megelingen...”[818].  It is uncertain whether this charter refers to the same Kuno von Megelingen who is named in the other documents quoted in this section.] 

Kuno & his wife had [three] children: 

iii)        [KUNO (-after [1180]).  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"[819].  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 his 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. 

iv)       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"[820]m ---.

H.      HERREN von ROTT, GRAFEN an der SEMPT und an der MANGFALL [PILGRIMIDEN]

 

 

Rott is located in southern Bavaria, south of Wasserburg. 

 

 

1.         PILGRIM [I] (-950 or after).  Graf an der Sempt 926/37.  "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"[828].  Graf an der Mangfall 950. 

 

2.         POPPO [I] (-after 980).  Wegener shows Poppo [I] as the son of Pilgrim [I] but cites no authority in support.  While continuity of the name Pilgrim in the family suggests a connection, this could be through either the male or female line.  Wegener refers to an exchange between Graf Pobbo and the bishopric of Freising of land near Munich in return for land at Rott[829].  Wegener cites a charter dated [980] relating to land "in der Grafschaft an der Sempt des Poppo"[830]m --- (-[1002/03] or after).  Wegener refers to a request dated [1002/03] from Eberhard Abbot of Tegernsee to King Heinrich II for help against the brothers Poppo and Piligrim and their mother over the right to property in Tegernsee[831].  Graf Poppo [I] & his wife had three children: 

a)         POPPO [II] von Rott (-[1040] or after).  The Vita Sancti Marini et Anniani names "utriusque Popponis avi scilicet et patris eius [Chonradi alias Chuno comitis palatine]"[832].  Wegener refers to a request dated [1002/03] from Eberhard Abbot of Tegernsee to King Heinrich II for help against the brothers Poppo and Piligrim and their mother over the right to property in Tegernsee[833].  "Chunigundæ imperatricis augustæ" donated property to the church of Freising by charter dated 1025, witnessed by "…Poppo comes, Piligrim comes…"[834]m ---.  The name and origin of the wife of Poppo [II] is not known.  Wegener suggests that she was --- im Sualafeld, daughter of KUNO [I] Graf im Sualafeld, whose other daughter may have married Heinrich [I] Graf von Pegnitz, based on the fact that both had sons named Kuno.  Graf Poppo [II] & his wife had three children: 

i)          KUNO [I] von Rott (-27 Mar [1086]).  The Vita Sancti Marini et Anniani names "utriusque Popponis avi scilicet et patris eius [Chonradi alias Chuno comitis palatine]"[835].  von Vohburg [1040].  Pfalzgraf von Bayern 1059.  Graf an der unteren Isar 1079.  He founded Kloster Rott. 

-         PFALZGRAFEN von BAYERN

ii)         POPPO (-Palestrina 9 Aug 1048).  The primary source which confirms his parentage has not yet been identified.  Bishop of Brixen 1039.  Pope DAMASUS II 25 Dec 1047. 

iii)        PILGRIM [III] (-[1055]).  The primary source which confirms his parentage has not yet been identified.  Wegener refers to the settlement of a dispute between Nitker Bishop of Freising and Eberhard Bishop of Augsburg dated [1039/47] which names "Piligrim comes"[836].  Graf im Wiptal und im Nortal [1039]/1047.  It is possible that the record of the death "VIII Id Jan" of "Pigrimus com" in the necrology of Lambach refers to this Graf Pilgrim[837]m ---.  The name of Pilgrim's wife is not known.  Pilgrim [III] & his wife had one child: 

(a)       POPPO [III] (-[1075] or after).  The primary source which confirms his parentage has not yet been identified.  Wegener states that Poppo [III] can only be a nephew of Poppo Bishop of Brixen, and therefore son of Pilgrim [III], but does not give a basis for this reasoning[838].  "Heinricus…Romanorum imperator augustus" donated property "in loco…Leian inter Montana in comitatu Popponis et in loco…Ufkirchin in comitatu Fridirici et in loco…Ebarhusen in comitatu Burchardi" to Freising Cathedral by charter dated 10 Dec 1055[839].  Graf im Wiptal und im Nortal 1055/[1070]. 

b)         [daughter .  Wegener suggests that the wife of Chadalhoh [IV] was the daughter of Graf Poppo [I] as the name Pilgrim passed to his son[840]m CHADALHOH [IV] Graf im Rottgau, son of ARIBO [I] Pfalzgraf von Bayern & his wife Adela --- (-11 Sep [1030]).] 

c)         PILGRIM [II] (-24 Dec [1039]).  Wegener refers to a request dated [1002/03] from Eberhard Abbot of Tegernsee to King Heinrich II for help against the brothers Poppo and Piligrim[841].  Graf an der Mangfall 1004/09.  "Henricus…rex" granted property "monasterio…Worngowe, quam Piligrim comes actenus in beneficium habuit" to Kloster Tegernsee by charter dated 22 May 1009[842].  Graf im Mattiggau 1014.  "Heinricus…Romanorum imperator augustus" donated property "que Gebehardus comes in beneficium habuit, in comitatu Piligrimi et in pago Matihgowe" to the bishopric of Bamberg by charter dated 21 Jun 1014[843].  "Chunigundæ imperatricis augustæ" donated property to the church of Freising by charter dated 1025, witnessed by "…Poppo comes, Piligrim comes…"[844], the juxtaposition of the two names possibly indicating that Poppo and Pilgrim were brothers.  "Chuonradus…Romanorum imperator augustus" granted property "in loco Metemenhaa in pago Matgouue in comitatu eiusdem Biligrimi" to "fideli nostro comiti Biligrimo" by charter dated 1 May 1039[845].  Wegener cites the Bamberg Cathedral necrology which records the death 24 Dec of "Piligrimus comes" and the death 30/31 Dec of "Piligrimus Piligrimi comitis filius"[846]m ---.  The name of Pilgrim's wife is not known.  Pilgrim [II] & his wife had one child:

i)          PILGRIM [IV] (-30/31 Dec before 1039).  Wegener cites the Bamberg Cathedral necrology which records the death 24 Dec of "Piligrimus comes" and the death 30/31 Dec of "Piligrimus Piligrimi comitis filius"[847]

3.         ARIBO .  Wegener cites a reference to "Poppo comes, frater eius Aribo" dated 973[848]

 

 

1.         MEGINHARD [I] (-after 987, bur Benediktbeuern Monastery).  Wegener refers to a document dated [987] which concerns property in the county of Meginhard "an der Mangfall", which suggests that Graf Meginhard succeeded Graf Poppo [I] in the area and was possibly his son[849].  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" and "Meginhardus frater senioris Tiemonis genuit Oudalricum, Hermannum provincie comitem et Chunradum", the last named capturing Rome in the name of Heinrich IV King of Germany[850].  Vogt von Benediktbeuern.  Graf an der Mangfall 987.  m [--- of Bavaria, daughter of ARNULF Pfalzgraf in Bavaria & his wife ---.  The wife of Graf Meginhard is shown by Wegener as the daughter of Pfalzgraf Arnulf but he quotes no primary source to support this assertion[851].]  Graf Meginhard [I] & his wife had three children: 

a)         ARNOLD (-11 Jan [1030], bur Benediktbeuern Monastery).  The Notæ Buranæ records the burial of "duos comites…Arnolfum…cum patre suo Meginhardo"[852].  Graf nordlich des Starnberger Sees.  Vogt von Benediktbeuern [1000]/1027.  The Chronicon Benedictoburanum records that "Arnoldus comes" donated property to the monastery "in villa Viscon"[853].  "Heinricus…Romanorum imperator augustus" donated property "in pago [blank] et in comitatu Arnoldi" to the bishopric of Bamberg by charter dated 28 Apr 1017[854].  "Chunigundæ imperatricis augustæ" donated property to the church of Freising by charter dated 1025, witnessed by "…Arnolt comes…"[855].  The necrology of Seeon records the death "III Id Jan" of "Arnoldus com"[856]m firstly ADELHEID, daughter of ---.  Wegener refers to a letter of Gozpert abbot of Tegernsee which names Adelheid as wife of Graf Arnold, specifying that she was "neptis" of the abbot[857]m secondly IRMGARD, daughter of --- (-[1000]).  The Chronicon Benedictoburanum lists (in order) "…Arnoldus huius loci defensor, Irminkardis comitissa…"[858], which suggests that the latter may have been the wife of the former.  Graf Arnold & his [second] wife had [three] children: 

i)          MEGINHARD [III] von Reichersbeuern (-killed 27 Feb 1066).  The primary source which confirms his parentage has not yet been identified.  Graf an der Mangfall.  The Annales Mellicenses record that "Meginhardus comes occiditur" in 1066[859].  The necrology of Salzburg St Rudpert records the death "III Kal Mar" of "Meginhart comes et frater eius Pilgrimus occisi sunt"[860]

ii)         PILGRIM [VI] (-27 Feb 1066).  The necrology of Salzburg St Rudpert records the death "III Kal Mar" of "Meginhart comes et frater eius Pilgrimus occisi sunt"[861], the year being provided by the record of his brother's death in the Annales Mellicenses (see above). 

iii)        [IRMGARD] .  The primary source which confirms her parentage and marriage has not yet been identified.  m [as his first wife,] FRIEDRICH [III] Graf von Diessen, son of FRIEDRICH [II] Graf & his wife --- (-30 Jun 1075, bur Seeon). 

b)         THIEMO (-25 Mar [1010]).  The primary source which confirms his parentage has not yet been identified.  "Otto…imperator augustus" addressed a letter to "Dieomoni amico nostro" requiring him to abstain from further damage to Kloster Tegernsee, undated but placed in the compilation with charters dated 1000[862].  Difficulties with the monastery evidently continued, as Wegener refers to a request from Peringer abbot of Tegernsee to Heinrich V Duke of Bavaria to order Graf Diemo to return a transport ship on the Inn to the monastery[863].  "Heinricus…rex" donated property inherited from his mother "in loco Halla dicto et in pago Salzburcgouui in comitatu Thiemonis comitis" to the bishopric of Bamberg by charter dated 1 Nov 1007[864].  Graf an der Mangfall [1000]/1007.  The necrology of the Niedermünster at Regensburg records the death "VIII Kal Apr" of "Tiemo com"[865]m ---.  The name of Thiemo's wife is not known.  Thiemo & his wife had [one] child:

i)          [UDALRICH .  "Heinricus…Romanorum imperator augustus" granted property "in orientali pago iuxta flumen Suarzaha…quam ibi possidet Odalricus filius Tiemonis comitis" to Kloster Niederaltaich by charter dated 8 Apr 1048[866].] 

c)         MEGINHARD [II] .  The primary source which confirms his parentage has not yet been identified.  Wegener refers to Meginhard von Gilching losing his claim to property of Tegernsee at Trens by charter dated [May/Jun 1011][867], presumably basing his affiliation on his name and on the connection with Tegernsee which is common to many members of this family. 

 

 

 

I.        GRAFEN von SCHEYERN und WITTELSBACH

 

 

According to Wegener[868], Otto [I] Graf von Scheyern was the possible son of Heinrich [I] Graf an der Pegnitz (son of Heinrich von Schweinfurt Duke of Swabia).  From their ancestral seat at Scheyern on the river Inn, the family built up a fairly compact domain between the Lech and Isar rivers, expanding to the west later with the castle of Wittelsbach.  They were hereditary Pfalzgrafen of Bavaria from the early 12th century[869]

 

 

1.         ---.  m ---. 

a)         HAZIGA [Hadagunda] [von Scheyern] (-1100 or after).  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"[870].  The only indication of the origin of Haziga is provided by the Chronicon Schirense which names "Heinricus patriarcha Aquileiensis et supradictus episcopus Polensis [=Ellenhardo] duo fratres" as sons of "matertere ipsius Hazige"[871].  Wegener suggests that she was the daughter of Friedrich [III] Graf von Diessen[872].  He bases this on a misreading of this passage in the Chronicon Schirense, assuming that it refers to Sieghard Patriarch of Aquileja who was the son of Sieghard Graf im Chiemgau & his wife Pilihild whom Wegener suggests was the sister of Graf Friedrich [III].  [m firstly ---.]  This first marriage of Haziga is not certain.  However, as explained below, the apparently contradictory references in the sources to the family relationship of Arnold Graf von Dachau to the family of the Grafen von Scheyern are best explained by his being the son of Haziga by an otherwise unknown first marriage.  m [secondly] [as his second wife,] HERMANN [I] Graf von Kastl, son of --- (-21 Apr [1056]).  The Chronicon Schirense records the marriage of "Haziga…de castro Schyren…[vidua] comiti Hermanno de Chastel...[et] comiti Ottoni de Schyren"[873].  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"[874].  The necrology of Scheyern records the death "XI Kal Mai" of "Hermannus com, huic copulate est Haziga coma, sed minima ab eo cognita"[875]m [secondly/thirdly] (after [1056]) OTTO, son of --- (-4 Dec ----, before Jul 1072, bur 1127 Scheyern Abbey).  The Schirenses Annales records that "Haziga comitissa" built "monasterium Vispach" in 1100[876].  child [of first marriage:]

i)          [ARNOLD (-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"[877], 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[878].  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[879] and there seems little reason why another adult son should have been omitted.  Europäische Stammtafeln[880] 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.] 

                             -        GRAFEN von DACHAU

 

 

1.         OTTO [I], son of --- (-4 Dec ----, before Jul 1072, bur 1127 Scheyern Abbey).  Vogt of Freising Cathedral [1047].  Graf von Scheyern.  The necrology of Scheyern records the death "II Non Dec" of "Otto com de Scheyren, maritus domine Hatzige"[881].  This reference to Otto in an apparently subordinate position to his wife suggests that she was heiress of Scheyern and brought the property to her husband who, before his marriage, was of lesser birth and importance in the social scale of local nobility.  This impression is reinforced by the necrology entry of the couple's son Bernhard which also emphasises his mother rather than his father.  m (after [1056]) as her second husband, HAZIGA [von Scheyern], widow of HERMANN [I] Graf von Kastl, daughter of --- & his wife --- (-1100 or after).  The Chronicon Schirense records the marriage of "Haziga…de castro Schyren…[vidua] comiti Hermanno de Chastel...[et] comiti Ottoni de Schyren"[882].  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"[883].  The necrology of Scheyern records the death "XI Kal Mai" of "Hermannus com, huic copulate est Haziga coma, sed minima ab eo cognita"[884].  The Chronicon Schirense names "Heinricus patriarcha Aquileiensis et supradictus episcopus Polensis [=Ellenhardo] duo fratres" as sons of "matertere ipsius Hazige"[885].  The Schirenses Annales records that "Haziga comitissa" built "monasterium Vispach" in 1100[886].  Wegener suggests that Haziga was the daughter of Friedrich [III] Graf von Diessen[887].  He bases this on his reading of the Chronicon Schirense which he says states that Sieghard Patriarch of Aquileja was the son of Haziga's aunt, Patriarch Sieghard being the son of Sieghard Graf im Chiemgau & his wife Pilihild, whom Wegener suggests was the sister of Graf Friedrich [III].  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"[888], referring to the patriarch who succeeded Patriarch Sieghard.  Graf Otto [I] & his wife had three children: 

a)         OTTO [II] von Scheyern (-[1107/08], bur Scheyern).  The Chronicon Schirense names (in order) "Ottonem, Pernhardum et Ekkardum comites" as the three sons of "comiti Ottoni de Schyren" and his wife Haziga[889]Graf von Scheyern.  Vogt of Freising Cathedral 1078.  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[890]

b)         EKKEHARD von Scheyern (-before 1088, bur Fischbachau, transferred 1127 to Scheyern).  The Chronicon Schirense names (in order) "Ottonem, Pernhardum et Ekkardum comites" as the three sons of "comiti Ottoni de Schyren" and his wife Haziga[891].  Vogt von Fischbachau und Weihenstephan.  Graf von Scheyern

c)         BERNHARD (-2 Mar [1101], bur Scheyern).  The Chronicon Schirense names (in order) "Ottonem, Pernhardum et Ekkardum comites" as the three sons of "comiti Ottoni de Schyren" & his wife Haziga[892].  Wegener cites a source dated [1070] which names "Pernhart de Sciren filius advocati"[893]Graf von Scheyern.  Vogt of Freising Cathedral.  The necrology of Scheyern records the death "VI Non Mar" of "Bernhardus com de Scheyern, filius domine Hatzige"[894]m ---.  The name of Bernhard´s wife is not known.  Bernhard & his wife had [three] children: 

According to Wegener, the following brothers were sons of Ekkehard, whereas Europäische Stammtafeln[895] shows them as sons of Bernhard.  The latter appears marginally more probable because of the early death of Ekkehard, which means it is unlikely that he had many children. 

i)          [OTTO von Scheyern (-on pilgrimage to Jerusalem).  Graf von Scheyern.  “Domnus Hodalricus advocatus ecclesiæ nostræ” donated property “Imichinhovin...Zimuvafin vel Werda...” to Freising church, with the consent of “fratris sui Ottonis”, by undated charter dated to the late 11th/early 12th century, witnessed by “Otto frater advocati, iterum comes Otto de Sciren, comes Ekkiperht...[896].  A charter dated 26 Mar 1123 names "fratres Otto, Bernhardus et Ekkahardus" in connection with a donation to Scheyern monastery[897].  Another charter dated 25 Apr 1124 names "Palatinus Comes Otto et patrueles sui Otto, Bernhardus et Ekkehardus" in connection with a donation to Scheyern monastery[898].]

ii)         [BERNHARD [II] von Scheyern .  A charter dated 26 Mar 1123 names "fratres Otto, Bernhardus et Ekkahardus" in connection with a donation to Scheyern monastery[899].  Another charter dated 25 Apr 1124 names "Palatinus Comes Otto et patrueles sui Otto, Bernhardus et Ekkehardus" in connection with a donation to Scheyern monastery[900].  Wegener cites a source dated [1135] which names "Berenhardus comes de Scirin"[901]  He also cites a list of canons at Freising dated 1139 which includes "Pernhardus Skirensis"[902].  He assumes that this is a different person, whose parentage he is unable to identify.  A simpler solution would be that the references are to the same person, assuming that the latter did belong to the family of the Grafen von Scheyern.] 

iii)        [EKKEHARD (-11 Jul after [1133/35]).  A charter dated 26 Mar 1123 names "fratres Otto, Bernhardus et Ekkahardus" in connection with a donation to Scheyern monastery[903].  Another charter dated 25 Apr 1124 names "Palatinus Comes Otto et patrueles sui Otto, Bernhardus et Ekkehardus" in connection with a donation to Scheyern monastery[904].  Wegener cites sources dated [1116/17], 1133, 1135 and [1135] which name Ekkehart as Vogt of Ebersberg, "Ekkehard comes de Sciren", and "Ekkehardus comes", and record the entry of Ekkehard as a monk at Scheyern, respectively[905].  The necrology of Undensdorf records the death "V Id Jul" of "Ekkardus com"[906].]  m ---.  The name of Ekkehard's wife is not known.  Ekkehard & his wife had [one] child: 

(a)       [EKKEHARD .  Wegener cites sources dated [1145] and [1150] which name "Ekehardus comes" as Vogt of Ebersberg and "Ekkehart comes de Skiren" as Graf um den Ebersberger Forst[907].] 

 

 

EKKEHARD von Scheyern, son of OTTO [I] Graf von Scheyern & his second wife Haziga [Hadagunda] von Scheyern (-20 Jun ----, before 1088, bur Fischbachau, transferred 1127 to Scheyern).  The Chronicon Schirense names (in order) "Ottonem, Pernhardum et Ekkardum comites" as the three sons of "comiti Ottoni de Schyren" and his wife Haziga[908]Graf von Scheyern, Vogt von Fischbachau und Weihenstephan.  Vogt of Freising Cathedral.  The necrology of Undensdorf records the death "XII Kal Jul" of "Ekkehardus com" and his donation of property at "Ilhdorf"[909]

m RICHGARD of Carniola and Istria, daughter of ULRICH I Marchese di Carniola e Istria & his wife Zsófia of Hungary ([1063/70]-).  The Historia Welforum refers to the four daughters of "Sophia ex duce Maginone", specifying that "terciam…duxit dux Maravie, quartam quam Egenhardus comes de Scirin a quodam monaterio…in Ratispona abstulit"[910].  It is clear from many other sources that Zsófia and her second husband Magnus of Saxony only had two daughters, Wulfhild and Eilika.  It is assumed therefore that the two other daughters referred to were her children by her first marriage with Ulrich of Istria, although the primary source which corroborates this clearly has not so far been identified.  While there appears to be some confusion in this text, it does clarify that the daughter of Zsófia of Hungary married Graf Ekkehart not his brother Graf Otto, the latter being favoured by Wegener[911].  The primary source which names her has not so far been identified, although the necrology of Undensdorf records the death "XII Kal Jun" of "Wichart coma"[912] which may refer to Richgard. 

Graf Ekkehard & his wife had two children: 

1.         OTTO [III] von Scheyern (-22 Aug [1123], bur Indersdorf).  Wegener cites a source dated [1095] which names "Otto filius Ekihardi"[913].  The Chronicon Schirense names "Otto et Oudalricus fraters de Schyren" specifying "postea castrum Wittelenspech possederunt"[914]Graf von Scheyern.  Vogt von Fischbachau 1102.  Vogt of Freising Cathedral.  Graf von Wittelsbach 1115.  Pfalzgraf of Bavaria 1110-1120.

J.      GRAFEN von TENGLING

 

 

The county of Tengling was situated near Tittmoning in Upper Bavaria.  It included a castle on the river Salzach and estates on both sides of the river.  It was an important base on the trading route from Reichenhall northwards towards the Danube, via the Salzach and Inn rivers.  It was inherited in [1165] by Heinrich "der Löwe" Duke of Saxony and Bavaria on the death of his kinsman Gebhard von Burghausen[917]

 

 

FRIEDRICH [I], son of [SIEGHARD [VII] or [VIII] Graf im Chiemgau] & his wife Pilihild [von Andechs] (-17 Jul 1071).  "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[918].  Wegener refers to a donation by Graf Friedrich, with the consent of his mother Pilihild, his wife Mathild and his brother Syrus [=Sieghard], to Michaelbeuren dated [1060][919]Graf von Tengling.  “...Fridericus comes de Tengelingen et filii eius Sigehardus et Fridericus...” witnessed the charter dated to [1073] under which “Ernestus Austriæ marchio” donated revenue from “prædium...in Wykendorff” to Kloster Melk[920].  The necrology of Seeon records the death "XVI Kal Aug" of "Fridericus com"[921]

m MATHILDE von Cham, daughter of DIETPOLD [I] Graf von Cham & his wife --- (-30 Sep after 1092).  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][922].  The primary source which confirms her parentage has not yet been identified.  Widow and nun 1072.  The necrology of Michaelbeuren records the death "II Kal Oct" of "Mechtildis com"[923]

Graf Friedrich [I] & his wife had four children: 

1.         SIEGHARD [X] von Tengling (-murdered Regensburg 5 Feb 1104).  “...Fridericus comes de Tengelingen et filii eius Sigehardus et Fridericus...” witnessed the charter dated to [1073] under which “Ernestus Austriæ marchio” donated revenue from “prædium...in Wykendorff” to Kloster Melk[924].  Wegener refers to a donation by "Sigehart et Fridericus frater eius de Thengelingen" dated 14 Jan 1104[925]Graf von Tengling.  Graf von Schala.  Graf von Burghausen.

a)         KONRAD [I] von Tengling (-16 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"[934].  Graf von Peilstein [1118].

b)         [HILDBURG [Hizila] (-31 Jul ----, bur Seeon).  Wegener suggests that the wife of Graf Siegfried [II] was the daughter of Friedrich [II] Graf von Tengling[935]. The necrology of Seeon records the death "II Kal Aug" of "Hiltipurch com…hic iacet" and her donation[936].  This is another of the entries written in capital letters in the necrology, presumably indicating that she was a major donor to the monastery.  m as his first wife, SIEGFRIED [II] Graf von Arch, son of ENGELBERT I von Sponheim Graf im Krainchgau, im Pustertal und von Sponheim & his wife Hadwig --- (-6 May [1130]).] 

c)         JUTTA (-1151).  The primary source which confirms her parentage has not yet been identified.  The Continuatio Claustroneoburgensis records the death in 1151 of "Iutta uxor Ottonis"[937], which Wegener assumes to refer to Jutta wife of Otto von Machland[938] although this is not certain.  m OTTO von Machland (-before 16 May 1147). 

d)         daughter .  Wegener refers to a charter of Eberhard II Archbishop of Salzburg relating to property "in prediis comitis Chunradi fundatoris et nepotum suorum procerum de Sleunz" which he takes as indicating that Babo von Schleinitz married a sister of Graf Konrad[939] although this presumably is not the only possible interpretation.  m BABO von Burg-Schleinitz, son of ---. 

e)         FRIEDRICH [III] .  The primary source which confirms his parentage has not yet been identified.  Graf von Peilstein.  1140/46.  The sources cited by Wegener show the existence of Graf Friedrich but not his affiliation[940]

L.      GRAFEN von WASSERBURG (HALLGRAFEN)

 

 

 

The territories of the Hallgrafschaft covered Reichenhall and its surroundings.  It also enjoyed a share in the dues paid to the Salzburg mint.  The last Hallgraf entered the community of Augustinians at Reichersberg in 1169.  Heinrich "der Löwe" Duke of Saxony and Bavaria is subsequently referred to as "Hallgraf" so it seems likely that he took over the Hallgrafschaft, overriding the rights of the younger brother of the last count[966]

 

 

---.  [same person as…? HEINRICH Graf von Wasserburg (-28 Jan ----).  The necrology of Ättl records the death "V Kal Feb" of "Hainricus com de Wasserburg"[967], who has not been otherwise identified.] 

m [as her first husband,] GISELA, daughter of ---.  Gisela was the wife of Arnold Graf von Diessen.  The possibility of this first marriage of Gisela to an unknown husband is speculative.  Europäische Stammtafeln[968] shows the four children below as possible children of Graf Arnold.  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 shows 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 to the end of his father's life assuming that there was not a large difference of age between him and his first wife, who it is unlikely could have been born much before [1095/98].  On the other hand, the dates of death of three of the children shown below indicate that they are unlikely to have been born after the early 1070s.  One possible explanation is that they 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 Heinrich] & h is wife had three children: 

1.         GEBHARD [I] von Wasserburg ([1070/75][969]-3 Oct [1102]).  von Diessen [1099].  The necrology of Diessen records the death "V Non Oct" of "Gebehardus com frater Berhtoldi comitis fundatoris nostri"[970]

-        see below

2.         OTTO von Wasserburg (-killed in battle Iringisheim 3 Nov [1112] or after).  The necrology of Diessen records the death "III Non Nov" of "Otto com frater Berhtoldi comitis fundatoris nostri, occisus Yringisheim"[971].  The necrology of Seeon records the death "III Non Nov" of "Otto com"[972], which presumably refers to the same individual. 

3.         DIETRICH (-1 Jun after [1091/98]).  The necrology of Diessen records the death "Jun Kal" of "Dheodericus com nostras frater Berhtoldi comitis fundatoris nostri"[973].  [Graf] von Wasserburg. 

 

 

GEBHARD [I] [von Wasserburg], son of --- & his wife Gisela --- (-3 Oct [1102]).  Graf von Diessen [1099].  The necrology of Diessen records the death "V Non Oct" of "Gebehardus com frater Berhtoldi comitis fundatoris nostri"[974]

m (after 1098) as her [second/third] husband, RICHGARD von Sponheim, widow firstly of [BERTHOLD [I] von Regensburg und Schwarzenburg] and secondly of POPPO II Marchese di Carniola e Istria, daughter of ENGELBERT Graf von Sponheim Graf im Pustergau & his wife Hadwig --- (-10 Apr [1130]).  Richgard's origin is confirmed by the source dated [1106], cited by Wegener, in which Richkart widowed Gräfin von Wasserburg donated property to Kloster St Paul witnessed by her brothers Bernhard and Heinrich[975].  Wegener refers to a source which names "Richkart uxor Gebehardi comitis et filius eius Engilpreht"[976]

Graf Gebhard [I] & his wife had one child: 

1.         ENGELBERT ([1099/1102]-20 Sep 1161).  The Chronicon Magni Presbiteri names "domnus Gebhardus Hallensis comes filius domni Engelberti item Hallensis comitis"[977].  Wegener refers to a source which names "Richkart uxor Gebehardi comitis et filius eius Engilpreht"[978].  Hallgraf 1116/1124.  von Lindburg 1129.  "Engilbertus Hallensium Comes" restored "monasterii Atilensis…in territorio Frisingensi" [Ättl], 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"[979]Graf von Wasserburg 1138.  "Enchelbertus Comes Hallensis et filius eius Gebehardus…" witnessed a charter dated to [1140] recording a donation to Reichersberg monastery[980].  "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][981].  The necrology of Ättl records the death "XII Kal Sep" of "Engelbertus com secundus fundator huius monasterii Ättle 1087 et Mathildis uxor eius, Ekhardus et Dietricus filii eius"[982].  Although the date 1087 must be incorrect, the charter dated to [1137] quoted above shows that this entry must refer to Engelbert Graf von Wasserburg.  m (before 1145) HEDWIG, daughter of DIETRICH [Graf von Viechtenstein [Formbach] & his wife Adelheid ---] (-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][983].  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"[984], 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[985].  "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][986].  The necrology of Ättl records the death "XII Kal Sep" of "Engelbertus com secundus fundator huius monasterii Ättle 1087 et Mathildis [error for Hadewigis] uxor eius, Ekhardus et Dietricus filii eius"[987].  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"[988].  Graf Engelbert & his wife had six children:

M.     GRAFEN von WOLFRATSHAUSEN

 

 

 

OTTO von Diessen, son of [BERTHOLD [II] Graf von Diessen & his wife ---] (-24 Apr ----, bur [Diessen] St Stefan).  Wegener quotes a reference to Otto son of Graf Perhtold dated 16 May 1060[1027].  Graf von Thanning [1073].  Graf von Ambras 1078/1093.  Graf von Wolfratshausen 1098/1116.  Graf von Diessen 1100/1107.  The De Fundatoribus Monasterii Diessenses records the death "VIII Kal Mai" of "Otto comes de Wolfraczhausen maior domus", specifying that he was buried "in…Sancti Stephani…iuxta fratrem suum"[1028].  The necrology of Diessen also records the death "Mar VIII Kal" of "Otto com senior et maior domus, sepultus ecclesia S Stephani, pater Ottonis fundatoris nostri"[1029]

m JUSTIZIA, daughter of --- (-30 Jan ----, bur Thanning).  The De Fundatoribus Monasterii Diessenses names "Iusticia cometissa" as wife of "Otto comes senior de Wolfratshausen" and in a later passage records her death "18 Kal Feb" and burial at "Danningen"[1030].  The necrology of Diessen records the death "Feb III Kal" of "Justicia com, sepulta Daniggen, mater Hainrici Ratisponensis ep et Ottonis comitis fundatoris nostri"[1031]Europäische Stammtafeln[1032] suggests that Justizia was JUSTIZIA von Babenberg, daughter of ERNST Markgraf of Austria [Babenberg] & his first wife Adelheid von Wettin, presumably to explain the transmission of the name Luitpold into the family.  According to Wegener, she was the daughter of Luitpold, older brother of Markgraf Ernst, proceeding on the assumption of the need for her father to be named Luitpold as a basis for the name transmission[1033].  It is not certain that such an assumption is correct, and in any case the evidence for this Luitpold having been married is slim.  Wegener suggests that Graf Otto [II] married secondly Adelheid, whom he supposes was the daughter of Heinrich [I] Burggraf von Regensburg, and that she was the mother of his children Otto, Heinrich, Adelheid and Elisabeth[1034].  He apparently bases this theory solely on the need to justify the transmission of the name Heinrich into the family, although this name is certainly not unique to the Burggrafen von Regensburg. 

Graf Otto & his wife had five children: 

1.         OTTO [III] von Diessen (-28 May 1122, bur Seeon).  The Fundatio cœnobis Dietrammi-Cellæ names "Ottone et Henrico" as the two sons of "comes Otto de Dyessen"[1035].  Graf und Vogt von Tegernsee 1121.  Graf von Wolfratshausen 1122/27.  He was the co-founder of Kloster Diessen.  He became a monk at Seeon zu Baumburg.  The Notæ Diessenses record the death "1122 5 Kal Iun" of "Otto comes", specifying that he was later a monk, was "fundator loci istius" and was buried at Seeon[1036].  The necrology of Diessen records the death "V Kal Jun 1122" of "Otto com post m factus fundator loci istius sepultus Sewen"[1037].  The necrology of Admont records the death "V Kal Jun" of "Otto ex com m"[1038]m LAURITTA, daughter of --- (-[21 Aug or 1 Sep] 1145).  The De Fundatoribus Monasterii Diessenses records the death "II Kal Sep" of "Lauritta uxor comitis…Ottonis"[1039].  She is also named "Lauritta cometissa" immediately after "Otto comes", and before the three known children of "Otto comes", in a long list of names linked with the family which is set out in a preceding passage in the De Fundatoribus, which has the appearance of having been copied from an earlier record[1040].  The necrology of Diessen records the death "II Kal Sep" of "Lauritta com fundatrix loci huius mater Ottonis et Heinrici comitum fundatorum nostrum"[1041].  The necrology of Admont records the death "Kal Sep" of "Lauretta com"[1042].  The necrology of Salzburg St Rudpert records the death "Kal Sep" of "Lauritta com"[1043].  Graf Otto [III] & his wife had three children: 

a)         HEINRICH (-2 May 1158, bur Diessen).  "Heinricus comes…mater sua Domina Lauretta Cometissa" donated property to Diessen monastery[1044]Graf von Wolfratshausen 1132.  “...Heinricus comes de Wolfratedhufen...” witnessed the charter dated 1138 under which Heinrich Bishop of Regensburg issued instructions relating to “Rorensi ecclesia...advocatorum[1045].  Vogt von Tegernsee [1140].  Vogt von St Emmeram 1150.  The Notæ Diessenses record the death "VI Non Mai" of "Hainricus comes de Wolfratehusin", specifying that he was buried "in capitolio"[1046].  The necrology of Diessen records the death "1158 May VI Non" of "Hainricus com de Wolfratehusin filius fundatoris nostri Ottonis comitis"[1047].  The necrology of Tegernsee records the death "VI Non May 1158" of "Hainricus com de Wolfrathusen advocatus" and his donation of property "in Alrays"[1048]

b)         OTTO [IV] (-killed in battle Pavia 10 Nov 1136, bur Diessen).  The Notæ Diessenses name "Otto comes iunior…frater Hainrici comes de Wolfratshausen" when recording his death "IV Id Nov", specifying that he was buried "in capitolio"[1049].  Graf von Wolfratshausen 1132.  The sources are contradictory concerning the year in which Otto [IV] was killed.  The necrology of Diessen records the death "IV Id Nov" of "Otto com iunior Papie sagitta confossus 1127, frater Heinrici comitis de Wolfratshusen filius Ottonis fundatoris nostris sep in capitolio"[1050].  The Annales Admuntenses record that "Otto comes de Diessen" was killed in 1136[1051].  The De Fundatoribus Monasterii Diessenses names "Otto comes frater Hainrici comitis de Wolfraczhausen" when recording his death in 1141[1052]m --- von Wittelsbach, daughter of OTTO [I] Graf von Scheyern und Wittelsbach, Pfalzgraf of Bavaria & his wife --- von Ratzenhofen.  The primary source which confirms her parentage and marriage has not yet been identified. 

c)         AGNES (-1169 or after).  The Vita Gebehardi names "Agnetam filiam Ottonis comitis de Diezen et Wolfrathuosen" as nun at Admont[1053].  Nun at Admont 1127/52.  A charter dated to [1130] records donations to Admont by "Otto comes de Wolfrathusen" to "filiam suam domnam Agnetem" when she became a nun[1054].  A charter dated 1152 records "domna Agnes filia comitis Ottonis, fratris episcopi Ratisponensis" as a nun at Admont[1055].  Abbess of Neuburg an der Donau 1165/69. 

2.         HEINRICH (-11 May 1155, bur Regensburg).  The De Fundatoribus Monasterii Diessenses names "Hainricum episcopum Ratisponensem" as one of the children of "Otto comes senior de Wolfratshausen" and his wife Iusticia[1056].  Deacon at Bamberg 1124.  Bishop of Regensburg 1132.  The De Fundatoribus Monasterii Diessenses records the death in 1155 of "Hainricus Ratisponensis episcopus, filius comitis Ottonis" and in a later passage his burial in Regensburg[1057].  The necrology of Diessen records the death "1155 May V Id" of "Hainricus Ratisponensis eps frater Ottonis fundatoris nostri"[1058]

3.         LUITPOLD (-19 Feb ----, bur St Stefan).  The necrology of Diessen records the death "Mar XI Kal" of "Liupoldus com, sepultus in ecclesie S Stephani protomartyris, frater Ottonis fundatoris nostri"[1059]

4.         ADELHEID (-11/12 Jan 1126, bur Kastl).  The 14th century Deutsche Reimchronik of Kloster Kastel names “Von Wolfratshusen...Alhait” as wife of “Hern Pernger[1060].  Some indirect corroboration of a connection between the Grafen von Sulzbach and the Grafen von Wolfratshausen is found in the De Fundatoribus Monasterii Diessenses which inaccurately names "Richentzam Lotharii imperatoris uxorem et Mariam imperatricem Grecorum" as daughters of "Ottonis de Wolfarthausen"[1061].  Some creative interpretation of this text is required: firstly, that it confuses the wife of Emperor Lothar and his successor Konrad III King of Germany (the latter being married to a daughter of Berengar Graf von Sulzbach); secondly, that "Mariam" is an error for "Bertam" the name of another daughter of Berengar Graf von Sulzbach who was married to Emperor Manuel I; and thirdly, that it omits reference to the intervening generation of the daughter of Graf Otto.  “Comes...Peringarius unacum uxore sua Adelheida ac filio Gebehardo” donated “ex hereditate matris...in villa Grettich et in Sconeberge et in Grauingadem” to Berchtesgaden by undated charter[1062].  Wegener dates this charter to early Dec 1125[1063].  The necrology of Tegernsee records the death "II Id Jan" of "Alhaidis comitissa de Sulzpach"[1064], the Liber Oblationum recording the death "III Id Jan" of "Alhaidis com de Sultzbach sor nra" and her burial "in capitolio nostro"[1065].  The necrology of Salzburg St Rudpert records the death "III Id Jan" of "Adelheit com"[1066]m as his second wife, BERENGAR [III] Graf von Sulzbach, son of GEBHARD [II] Graf von Sulzbach & his wife Irmgard von Roth (-3 Dec 1125, bur Kastl).  

5.         ELISABETH .  Wegener refers to Walchoun von Eulenschwang being the son of the sister of Heinrich Bishop of Regensburg[1067]m BERNHARD von Eulenschwang, son of ---. 

 

 

 

 

Chapter 4.    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[1068].  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[1069].  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[1070], 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[1071], 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[1072].  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[1073].  "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[1074].  Graf im Volkfeld 973.  Markgraf 976.  Graf des Ostlichen Franken 980.  The necrology of Fulda records the death in 980 of "Berahtolt com"[1075]

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[1076].  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[1077].  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[1078].  Thietmar records the death of "Countess Eila" on 19 Aug and her burial in the monastery which she had constructed[1079]

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[1080].  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[1081].  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"[1082]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[1083].  An alternative possibility is that Gerberga was the daughter of Otto Graf von Grabfeld, the solution chosen by Europäische Stammtafeln[1084], 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[1085].  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[1086].  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][1087]-10 Dec after [1055/56]).  The Annalista Saxo names "Eilica…filia marchionis Heinrici de Suinvorde" as wife of "Bernhardus iunior"[1088].  The necrology of Lüneburg records the death "10 Dec" of "Eila ducissa"[1089]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"[1090].  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[1091].  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[1092].  The marriage is not mentioned in Wegener, although he refers cryptically to "Lui von Frizberg, I. Tuta Regina. II. Judith von Schweinfurt"[1093].   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[1094], 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[1095].  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[1096].  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[1097].  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[1098].]   

-        GRAFEN von WEISSENBURG und LECHSGEMÜND

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[1101].  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[1102]

[1103]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[1104].  The Annalista Saxo records the end of the betrothal with "Machtildem" but does not give her origin[1105]

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"[1106].  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[1107]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[1108].  Heiress of Schweinfurt.  The Gesta Archiepiscoporum Magdeburgensium records the death "1102 XV Kal Iul" at "Wadderoth" of "Beatrice, filia Ottonis ducis Suevorum"[1109]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[1110].  "Heinricus…rex" granted property "in pago Nortgowe comitatu vero Heinrici" to the church of Bamberg by charter dated 27 Oct 1069[1111].  The Bernoldi Chronicon records the death in 1078 of "Heinricus marchio"[1112].  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[1113]

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"[1114].  The Vita Godefridi comitis Capenbergensis names "pater eius Godefridus, mater Beatrix" parents of Gottfried Graf von Cappenberg[1115].  The Vita Godefridi comitis Capenbergensis names "Heinricum comitem de Ryetbeke" second husband of Beatrix after the death of "Godefrido"[1116]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"[1117]Europäische Stammtafeln[1118] 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[1119], although this contradicts an entry recording the death of Gisela "uxor comitis Arnoldi" in the Diessen necrology[1120].  He cites the Kastler Reimchronik of [1323/24] according to which "Sophie, daughter of Graf Otto" married a Graf von Andechs[1121].  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"[1122].  The Fundatio Monasterii Banzensis names "marchio Hermannus…uxorem Alberadam" as founders of the monastery of Banz in [1071], and their two children "Heinricum, Ottonem"[1123].  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[1124].  Abbess of Niedermünster at Regensburg.  The necrology of Regensburg St Emmeram records the death "III Non Jul" of "Heilika abbatissa"[1125].  The necrology of Weltenburg records the death "III Non Jul" of "Eilika abbatissa de inferiori monasterio"[1126]

6.         [SOPHIE .  Wegener refers to the Kastler Reimchronik of [1323/24] according to which Sophie, daughter of Graf Otto, married a Graf von Andechs[1127].  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[1128]

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"[1129].  The Fundatio Monasterii Richenbacensis names "Lukardis" as mother of "marchio Dietpaldus" in connection with the foundation of Reichenbach[1130].  She married secondly Ernst von Grögling Graf von Ottenburg.  The necrology of the Obermünster, Regensburg records the death "XV Kal Mar" of "Liutkard marchiocoma"[1131].  The necrology of Augsburg St Ulrich records the death "XV Kal Mar" of "Liutgart marchionissa"[1132]

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"[1133]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[1134]

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"[1135].  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"[1136].  Wegener suggests that Hedwig may alternatively have been a daughter of Ratpoto [IV] Graf von Cham, but he does not explain his reasoning[1137]m WOLFRAM [II] Graf von Abenberg, son of --- [WOLFRAM [I] Graf im Rangau [Abenberg] & his wife --- von Regensburg].  The Vita Chuonradi Archiepiscopi names "prefectus Ratisponensis Otto senior" as son of "avunculus" of Konrad Archbishop of Salzburg[1138], who was the son of Graf Wolfram, indicating that his mother was sister of Burggraf Otto's father, assuming that avunculus is used in the strict sense of the word.  The chronology suggests some difficulty with the relationships set out in the Vita Chuonradi.  Maybe there was an additional generation between Wolfram [I] Graf im Rangau and Wolfram [II] Graf von Abenberg, in which case avunculus may have indicated great-uncle. 

 

 

 

C.      GRAFEN von CHAM (RATPOTONEN)

 

 

 

1.         RATPOTO [I], son of --- (-after 7 Oct 984).  Graf im oberen Traungau.  "Otto…imperator augustus" donated property "de rivolo Erilipach usque ad acutum montem qui Diutisce vocatur Vuassinperch, prope Iscalam in illo loco ubi terminus forestis Ratpotoni comitis" to the church of Salzburg by charter dated 1 Oct 977[1139], confirmed by Otto III King of Germany by charter dated 7 Oct 984[1140]

 

2.         RATPOTO [II] (-[13 Jun] after [1020]).  His name suggests that he was closely related to Graf Ratpoto [I] but this has not been verified by any primary source which has been consulted.  "Henricus…rex" granted property "predium Slierbach in comitatu Radpotonis in pago Oliupestale" to the church of Salzburg by charter dated 7 Dec 1006[1141].  Graf im oberen Traungau.  Wegener refers to a source dated [1020] which names Graf Ratpoto and his son Dietbald[1142].  The necrology of Mondsee records the death "Id Jun" of "com Ratpoto"[1143]m ---.  The name of Ratpoto's wife is not known.  Graf Ratpoto [II] & his wife had [two] children: 

a)         [RATPOTO [III] (-18 Jun [1050]).  His name suggests that he was closely related to Graf Ratpoto [II] but this has not been verified by any primary source which has been consulted.  Graf von Diessen.  Wegener refers to a document dated 19 Jun [1050] confirming that "comes Razo de Diezen felicis memorie" had granted property to "dem Priester Heribert einem Verwandten"[1144].  The necrology of Salzburg St Rudpert records the death "XIV Kal Jul" of "Ratpoto com"[1145].]  Two alternatives wives have been suggested for Graf Ratpoto [III]:

m HEMMA of Austria, daughter of LUITPOLD Markgraf der Bayerischen Ostmark [Babenberg] & his wife Richwara ---.  She is named as wife of Graf Ratpoto [III] in Europäische Stammtafeln[1146], but the primary source which confirms her parentage and marriage has not yet been identified. 

m --- von Diessen, sister of FRIEDRICH [II] Graf [von Diessen], daughter of ---.  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[1147]

b)         DIETPOLD [I] (-18 May [1060]).  Wegener refers to a source dated [1020] which names Graf Ratpoto and his son Dietbald[1148]

-        see below

 

 

DIETPOLD [I], son of RATPOTO [II] Graf im oberen Traungau & his wife --- (-18 May [1060]).  Wegener refers to a source dated [1020] which names Graf Ratpoto and his son Dietbald[1149].  The Chronici Herimanni Continuatio records that András King of Hungary sent his son to King Heinrich IV "per Tiedbaldum comitem"[1150].  The necrology of Zwiefalten records the death "XV Kal Jun" of "Diepolt com de Monte"[1151]

a)         RATPOTO [V] (-Regensburg 14 Apr 1099).  Wegener refers to the document dated 17 Jul 1072 relating to the renewal of Kloster Michaelbeuern which is witnessed by "Ratpoto senior et Uodalrich et iunior Ratpoto filii eius"[1153].  Vogt of St Emmeram.  Pfalzgraf von Bayern 1082/83.  The Chronicon of Bernold records the death in 1099 of "Rapoto Palatinus comes de Baioaria"[1154].  The necrology of Augsburg St Ulrich records the death "XVIII Kal Apr" of "Rapoto com palatinus"[1155]m (after 1081) as her second husband, ELISABETH, widow of KUNO [II] von Rott Pfalzgraf von Bayern, daughter of ---.  The Vita Sancti Marini et Anniani names "Chuno iunior comes filius [Chonradi alias Chuno comitis palatine], Elizabeth uxor filii de Lotring"[1156].  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.  1086/99. 

b)         ULRICH (-Regensburg 24 Feb 1099).  Wegener refers to the document dated 17 Jul 1072 relating to the renewal of Kloster Michaelbeuern which is witnessed by "Ratpoto senior et Uodalrich et iunior Ratpoto filii eius"[1157].  Graf von Finningen.  Graf von Passau.  The necrology of Baumburg records the death "X Kal Feb" of "Ulricus fil palatine fundator"[1158], "fil" presumably being an error for "frater".  m as her second husband, ADELHEID von Lechsgemünd, widow of MARKWARD Graf im Chiemgau, daughter of KUNO von Lechsgemünd & his wife Mathilde von Horburg [Achalm] (-Regensburg 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"[1159].  She married thirdly ([1100]) as his first wife, Berengar [III] Graf von Sulzbach  The necrology of Baumburg records the death "VI Kal Mar" of "Alheidis com fundatrix"[1160].  Graf Ulrich & his wife had one child:

c)         MATHILDE (-[1125]).  The primary source which confirms her parentage has not yet been identified.  The Codex Traditionum of Formbach monastery records a donation by "domnus Odalricus de Windeperge frater domni Herimanni", names "Thiemo avus suus", and records that the donation was confirmed by "coniux illius domna Mathilt et filius eius Chonradus" after the donor´s death[1165].  The necrology of Oberaltaich records the death "VII Id Nov" of "Mathild com"[1166], which may refer to this Mathilde as the death of her son Konrad is recorded in the same necrology.  m ULRICH [III] Graf von Ratelberg-Windberg, son of MEGINHARD IV Vogt von Niederaltaich [Formbach] & his wife Mathilde von Reinhausen (-1097).

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[1179].  Graf an der unteren Ampar.  von Berghofen 1035.  Vogt von Eichstätt 1049/53.]

2.         [ERNST (-12 Nov [1096/97]).  Wegener highlights the absence of proof that Ernst was the son of Hartwig [II], but emphasises that this parentage looks likely both because of the onomastics and the connection with Eichstädt[1186].  Graf 1070.  Vogt zu Eichstätt 1085.  Graf von Grögling 1096.  Graf von Ottenburg.]   

-        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[1187].  Graf im Lurngau.  The Codex Traditionum of Suben monastery records that "Comes Udalscalchus et coniunx Adalheit" transferred the monastery to "Altmanno suo"[1188].  The necrology of St Andreas an der Traisen records the death "XI Kal Dec" of "Oudalscalcus com"[1189].]  m firstly EMMA, daughter of --- (-[1100]).  Wegener cites a source which names (in order) "Wodalscalcus comes, Emma comitissa"[1190].  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[1191], 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 Zsófia 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"[1192].  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"[1193].  "Adelhaid commitissa…cum filio suo Altmanno" donated property to Suben priory by charter dated to before 1124[1194].  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[1195].  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…"[1196].  Wegener refers to a source dated 3 Oct 1102 which names "Conradus advocatus Aquilegiensis" and his wife Mathilde[1197].  He also refers to Archbishop Berthold "filius quondam Purchardi" granting Schloß Attems in Friulia to his relatives Konrad and Mathilde dated 8 Nov 1106[1198].  "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"[1199].  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"[1200]

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"[1201]

b)         UDALSCHALK (-13 Nov 1108 or after).  The primary source which confirms his parentage has not yet been identified.  Abbot of Tegernsee 1091/[1107/08]. 

c)         [daughter .  Wegener explains that property owned by Wildgraf Otto could only have been inherited from the family of Udalschalk Graf im Lurngau, and also that Otto’s son was named Udalschalk[1202]m OTTO Wildgraf Graf an den unteren Ampar.] 

d)         ADALBERO .  The Codex Traditionum of Suben monastery records that "Adalbero Comes filius Udalscalci Comitis" donated property to Suben monastery[1203].  Graf im Lurngau [1135]. 

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

e)         [WILLIBIRG .  According to Wegener[1204], 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"[1205]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[1206].  The necrology of Salzburg St Rudpert records the death "VI Id Mar" of "Adelheit de Mosiburch"[1207]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"[1208].  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"[1209].  "Adelhaid commitissa…cum filio suo Altmanno" donated property to Suben priory by charter dated to before 1124[1210].  Bishop of Trient 1123. 

4.         daughter (-[1115]).  The primary source which confirms her parentage and marriage has not yet been identified.  m as his first wife, SIGIBOTO [II] von Weyarn, son of SIGIBOTO [I] Graf an der Mangfall & his wife Liutgard --- (-10 Feb 1136). 

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"[1211] 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[1212].]

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[1213].  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"[1214]

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"[1215].  The Fundatio Monasterii Richenbacensis names "Lukardis" as mother of "marchio Dietpaldus" in connection with the foundation of Reichenbach[1216].  The primary source which confirms her second marriage has not yet been identified. 

Graf Ernst & his wife had four children: 

1.         ALTMANN (-2 Oct [1115]).  “...Altman filius Ernusti comitis...” witnessed the undated charter under which “nobilis matrona...Perichta” donated property “in loco Asinchoven” to Freising church[1217].  Wegener dates this charter to [1096/98][1218]Graf von Grögling.  The Liber Oblagiorum of Freising Cathedral records the death "VI Non Oct" of "com Almannus", and his donation of "Perchooven"[1219].  “Comes Hartvic” donated property “apud Perchoven” [Berghofen] to Freising church, for the soul of “fratris sui...Altmanni comitis”, by undated charter[1220].  Wegener dates this charter to [1115][1221]

2.         HARTWIG [III] (-1139 or after).  “Comes Hartvic” donated property “apud Perchoven” [Berghofen] to Freising church, for the soul of “fratris sui...Altmanni comitis”, by undated charter[1222].  Wegener dates this charter to [1115][1223]Graf von Grögling.  Graf an der Glonn 1130.  Vogt at Eichstätt 1122.  Vogt at Plankstetten 1136.  m ---.  Graf Hartwig [III] & his wife had [two] 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[1224]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]"[1225], 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"[1226].  Graf von Grögling.  "Nobilis quidam Ernestus", brother of Bishop Gebhard and of Vogt Hertwic, founded the Benedictine monastery of Plankstetten in 1129[1227]

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[1228].  According to Europäische Stammtafeln[1229], 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[1230].] 

m [secondly] SOPHIE von Sulzbach, daughter of GEBHARD [III] Graf von Sulzbach & his wife Mechtild von Bayern (-after 1 Aug 1227).  The 14th century Deutsche Reimchronik of Kloster Kastel names “Fraw Sophie” as one of the daughters of “Her Gebhart”, records her marriage to “der Grave von Kreglingen”, and names their children “Her Hainrich...der Pischof...datz Eistet...Her Gebhart...Grave von Hirsperk[1231].  Wegener cites a source dated 1 Aug 1227 which names "Gebehardus comes de Hirzberc filius Sophie, Gebehardus comes de Sulzbach fratruelis eius"[1232]

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][1242].  "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[1243].   The necrology of St Salvator records the death "Kal Mar" of "Agnes com de Halse"[1244].  The necrology of Seligenthal records the death "V Non Mar" of "Agnes von Halse"[1245]m as his second wife, ALBERT [VI] Graf von Hals, son of ALRAM [IV] Graf von Hals & his wife --- (-5 Oct 1305, bur Osterhofen).]

E.      GRAFEN von HOHENBURG

 

 

The first reference to the Grafschaft von Hohenburg im Nordgau is dated to [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"[1275].  "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…"[1276]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"[1277].  On the other hand, the Historia Cremifanensis names "domina Alhaidis de Wiltperg" as widow of "comitis Ernstonis de Hohenburch" when recording her donation[1278].  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"[1279].  “Nobilis matrona Adelheid de Hohenburg” donated “duos mansos Moeringen sitos” to Kloster Obermünster, with the consent of “filiorum suorum”, for the souls of “sue et filie eius Sophie”, by undated charter[1280].  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"[1281]

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"[1282]Graf von Hohenburg.  “...Ernistus de Hohenburk...” witnessed the charter dated 28 Sep 1138 under which Heinrich Bishop of Regensburg issued instructions relating to “Rorensi ecclesia...advocatorum[1283].  "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][1284]

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"[1285]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"[1286].  Graf Friedrich [I] & his wife had one child: 

a)         FRIEDRICH [II] von Hohenburg (-15 May [1209]).  The necrology of Altenburg records the death "Id May" of "Fridericus com de Hochenburck iunior"[1287].  "Luipoldus…dux Austrie et Stirie" confirmed a donation to Kloster Altenburg by "Fridericus comes de Hohenburch pie memorie", in the presence of "Chunrado comite de Hartekke", by charter dated to [1210], which specifies that Graf Friedrich had died "absque herede"[1288]m as her first husband, MECHTILD von Wasserburg, daughter of DIETRICH Graf von Wasserburg & his wife Heilika von Wittelsbach (-after Feb 1237).  "Comes Dietricus de Wazzerburch et uxor sua Hailka et filie mee Haidewich et Methilt" donated property to Scheftlarn monastery by charter dated 1192[1289].  Her parentage and two marriages are confirmed by the charter dated Feb 1237 under which “Mathildis marchionissa de Hohenburg” transferred “jura et actiones contra fratrem suum comitem de Wasserburg” to “filiis suis Bertoldo et Diupoldo[1290].  She married secondly Diepold [VII] Markgraf von Vohburg

3.         SOPHIE von Hohenburg ([1122/23]-).  “Nobilis matrona Adelheid de Hohenburg” donated “duos mansos Moeringen sitos” to Kloster Obermünster, with the consent of “filiorum suorum”, for the souls of “sue et filie eius Sophie”, by undated charter[1291].  Wegener suggests that she was born posthumously and dates this donation to [1123][1292].  The addition of the donor’s own name linked to the name of her daughter (in relation to whom the wording provides no indication that she was deceased) suggests that both were alive at the date of the donation. 

 

 

 

F.      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[1293].  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"[1294].  The necrology of Scheyern records the death "XI Kal Mai" of "Hermannus com, huic copulate est Haziga coma, sed minima ab eo cognita"[1295].  [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"[1296].  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"[1297].  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][1298]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"[1299].  The Fundatio Monasterii Banzensis names "marchio Hermannus…uxorem Alberadam" as founders of the monastery of Banz in [1071], and their two children "Heinricum, Ottonem"[1300].  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"[1301].  The same passage later clarifies that Alberada had three sons "Heinricus et Otto…Conradum" and one daughter[1302]

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"[1303].  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[1304], 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"[1305]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"[1306].  The Fundatio Monasterii Banzensis names "marchio Hermannus…uxorem Alberadam" as founders of the monastery of Banz in [1071], and their two children "Heinricum, Ottonem"[1307].  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[1308], 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[1309], 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.] 

 

 

 

G.      GRAFEN von LECHSGEMÜND, HORBURG und GRAISBACH

 

 

 

1.         BERTHOLD (-after 16 Jun 1065).  Graf von Graisbach.  “Bertholdus...comes de Greisbach” acknowledged fiefs “mediam partem castri in Greisbach...in Lechsgemünd duas vineas...” held from the church of Eichstätt by charter dated 16 Jun 1065[1310]

 

 

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[1311].  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[1312].  "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[1313].  "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[1314].  "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[1315].  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[1316]

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][1317].  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[1318].  "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[1319].  "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[1320].  "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[1321].  "Heinricus…rex" granted property "in villa Dieprehdesdorf in pago Nortgowe in comitatu Heinrici" to "servienti nostro Ebbo" by charter dated 19 Oct 1079[1322].  According to Wegener[1323], 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[1324]

2.         KUNO von Lechsgemünd (-before 1094).  The necrology of Kaisheim "V Id Mar" names "Hainrici comitis de Lechgemünd primi fundatoris et Conradi filii eius"[1325]

-        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[1326], 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"[1327], 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[1328]

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"[1329].  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"[1330]

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"[1331], 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"[1332].  The necrology of Zwiefalten records the death "11 Kal Oct" of "Mahthilt com soror Liutoldi comitis"[1333]

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[1334].  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"[1335]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).  Heinrich Bishop of Regensburg donated “predium...Schamhob”, renounced by “nobilis vidua Gerdrudis...cum unica filia sua Luicarde”, by charter dated 28 Apr 1137, witnessed by "...Otto comes de Me--n et frater eius Heinricus..."[1336].  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.] 

-        see below

b)         [OTTO (-12 Jan before 1144).  Heinrich Bishop of Regensburg donated “predium...Schamhob”, renounced by “nobilis vidua Gerdrudis...cum unica filia sua Luicarde”, by charter dated 28 Apr 1137, witnessed by "...Otto comes de Me--n et frater eius Heinricus..."[1337].  Graf von Möhren.  m G---.  Wegener cites a source dated 2 Feb [1144] which names "G" widow of Graf Otto[1338].] 

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"[1339].  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[1340].  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"[1341].  1083/1103.  Graf von Horburg.  Wegener cites a donation to Hirsau dated [1110] by Kuno and his son Konrad[1342]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[1343].  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"[1344], 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[1345], 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][1346].  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[1347], "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[1348].  “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[1349].  The necrology of Zwiefalten records the death "II Kal Jul" of "Cuono de Horburc"[1350], 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[1351]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[1352].  "Chuno de Horberch…cum uxore sua Adelheit" donated property to Osterhove monastery[1353].  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[1354], and another source which states that he was dead in 1130[1355].  If this is correct, Konrad must have been a different person from his supposed brother Kuno.  According to Europäische Stammtafeln[1356], 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.

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[1359].  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[1360] but not referred to as such in Wegener[1361].  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"[1362].  Graf [1125].  von Horburg 1150.  The necrology of Zwiefalten records the death "XII Kal Feb" of "Burchart comes"[1363]

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[1364].  The necrology of Salzburg St Rudpert records the death "XIV Kal Nov" of "Mathil com"[1365]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"[1366].  "Cometissa…Adilheit" donated property to Bamburg, for the soul of "mariti sui Marcwardi", by charter dated to [1095][1367].  The necrology of Baumburg records the death "VI Kal Mar" of "Alheidis com fundatrix"[1368]m firstly MARKWARD Graf im Chiemgau, son of SIEGHARD [VII] or [VIII] Graf im Chiemgau & his [second wife Tuta ---] (-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 [III] 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[1369], 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]).]

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[1376].  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][1377].  The necrology of Kaisheim records the death "II Non Feb" of "Adelhaidis com fundatricis"[1378], 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:

H.      LANDGRAFEN von LEUCHTENBERG

 

 

Leuchtenberg is located in the district of Neustadt in north-eastern Bavaria, about 30 kilometres east of Sulzbach, and is now a suburb of Weiden in der Oberpfalz close to the border with what is today the Czech Republic.  In medieval times, it lay in the Bavarian Nordgau. 

 

 

1.         GEBHARD [I] von Leuchtenberg (-1146, bur Kloster Ensdorf).  The Vita Ottonis records that Otto Bishop of Bamberg, on his way to Pomerania (dated to [1124]), dedicated the church of “illustri viro Gebehardo Waldekkensensi” and another church “Vohendrecetensem” after spending the night at Kloster Michelfeld[1438].  Another chronicle clarifies that these two churches consecrated were “unam in Luckenperge et aliam in Vohendrese[1439], suggesting that Gebhard von Waldeck was the same person as Gebhard [I] von Leuchtenberg.  “Fridericus advocatus, Gebehardus de Lukenberge, Gebehard de Rittenburc, Pertoldus de Scaminhobt, Udalricus de Steine, Gozpertus de Holinsteine, Werinherus de Labere, Altmannus de Siginburch, Meginhardus de Parchsteine, Erchinbertus de Altindorf...” witnessed the undated charter under which “Marchio Dietpaldus” donated property to Reichenbach monastery which was under construction[1440].  “Gebehardus de Lukenberge, Megenhardus de Phrime [Pfreimt]...” witnessed the undated charter under which “Marchio Dietpaldus” donated “predium...Denchilingen” to Reichenbach[1441].  Wittmann dates this charter to [1130][1442].  Wittmann states that “eine noch ungedrückte gleichzeitige Chronik des Kl. Schäftlarn” records the death of Gebhard [I] in 1146[1443].  A charter dated 4 Aug 1155 records that “Fridericus pater Palatine et domina Heilwic soror Palatine et Gebehardus maritus eius de Lewkenberge et filii illorum Fridericus et Gebehardus” were buried at Ensdorf[1444]m HEILWIG von Pettendorf, daughter of [Graf] FRIEDRICH von Pettendorf & his wife [Heilika von Staufen] (-before [1166], bur Ensdorf).  The Fundatio Monasterii Ensdorfensis names "domna Heilwic soror palatine" as wife of "Gebehardus…de Leukenberge" in connection with the foundation of Ensdorf[1445].  A charter dated 4 Aug 1155 records that “Fridericus pater Palatine et domina Heilwic soror Palatine et Gebehardus maritus eius de Lewkenberge et filii illorum Fridericus et Gebehardus” were buried at Ensdorf[1446].  A charter dated to [1166] records that “Marqwardo de Lewgenberge” donated “predium Wartberch” to Ensdorf for the funeral of “matris sue Heylwic”, refers to earlier donations for the funerals of “mariti sui Gebehardi...Friderici filii sui”, and records that “Gebehardus...frater eius” donated property in memory of Marquard who died “in expeditione Friderici Imperatoris apud Longobardos[1447].   Gebhard [I] & his wife had [four] children:

The relationship between the following two individuals and the main Leuchtenberg family, if any, has not been ascertained. 

 

1.         ALTMANN von Leuchtenberg .  “Altmannus de Lukenperch...” witnessed the undated charter (dated to the early 12th century) under which “Udalrichus de Wifridishofen” donated “predium...Erchinfridishof” to Reichenbach monastery[1466]

 

2.         ULRICH von LeuchtenbergGraf von Leuchtenberg.  “Theobaldus marchio, Udalricus comes de Leutenberg, Gebhardus de Sulzbach” witnessed an undated charter recording a donation to Freising[1467].  Wittmann suggests that Ulrich was Graf von Abensberg, whose family he suggests was closely related to the Leuchtenberg family and whose name he may have applied to his own comital title[1468]

 

3.         ALBRECHT von Leuchtenberg (-after 1180).  Wittmann notes “Albert [von Leuchtenberg]” who is named in 1180[1469]

 

 

The parentage of Diepold [I] von Leuchtenberg is not known.  From a chronological point of view he could have been the son of Gebhard [II] or Markward von Leuchtenberg.  The circumstances of Diepold’s appointment as Landgraf are unclear.  In the source dated 27 Jan 1900 quoted below, he is called “Landgraf von Steffling”.  As noted in the chapter in this document which shows the Burggrafen von Regensburg and Landgrafen von Steffling, the death of the last holder of this title in the original family is recorded in the mid-1190s.  One possibility is therefore that the title Landgraf was borne in Bavaria by a single office-holder at any one time and, on the extinction of the previous family, was transferred to the Leuchtenberg family.  If that is correct, it is likely that Diepold [I] von Leuchtenberg was related in some way to Otto [VI] Landgraf von Steffling: one possibility is that Diepold married Otto’s sister. 

 

1.         DIEPOLD [I] von Leuchtenberg (-10 Feb, [after 1209])Landgraf von Leuchtenberg.  A charter dated to [1191] records the donation to Ensdorf made by “Dominus Diepoldus Lantgravius de Lwgenberge[1470].   "Lypoldus [error for Dypoldus] lantgravius de Lingenberge" witnessed the charter dated 1198 under which "Fridericus burgravius de Nurenberc" sold "predium in Lipene"[1471].  Philipp King of Germany confirmed the donation to Ensdorf made by Ludwig Duke of Bavaria “in manus...Diepoldi lantgravii de Luckinberc” by charter dated 10 Jul 1199[1472].  “...Zeppoldus [=Diepoldus] landgr. v. Stephininke...” witnessed the charter dated 27 Jan 1200 under which Philipp King of Germany granted privileges to the town of Goslar[1473].  [“...der Landgf. v. Leuchtenberg...” witnessed the charter dated 19 Aug 1209 under which Otto IV King of Germany confirmed property to Verona[1474].  As no name is specified in this document, it is not known to which Landgraf this source refers.]  The necrology of Diessen records the death "IV Id Feb" of "Dietpoldus com de Liugunberch"[1475]m ---.  The name of Diepold's wife is not known.  As noted above, the reference to her husband with the Steffling title suggests that she may have been the heiress of Otto [VI] Landgraf von Steffling.  Diepold [I] & his wife had two children:

a)         GEBHARD [III] (-1244 or after).  The primary source which confirms his parentage has not yet been identified, but no primary source has been identified which names another individual besides Landgraf Diepold [I] who could have been the father of Gebhard [III].  Landgraf von Leuchtenberg.  “...Gebehardus lantgravius de Luchimberg...” witnessed the charter dated 10 Jun 1214 under which Friedrich II King of Germany granted protection to Waldsassen monastery[1476].  “...Gebehardus lantgravius de Liukenberge...” witnessed the charter dated 22 Dec 1215 under which Friedrich II King of Germany confirmed an exchange of property involving the church of Regensberg[1477].  “Gebehardus et frater eius Diepoldus Landgravii de Liukenberge...” witnessed the charter dated 1222 under which “Mechtildis Superioris Monasterii Abbatissa” confirmed donations[1478].  “Gebhardus senior et Dipoldus frater suus Lancgravii de Leukenberge...” witnessed the charter dated 1243 under which Gebhard Graf von Sulzbach donated property to Bamberg[1479].  “Gebhardus Lantgravius de Lukenberge cum Friderici et Gebehardi filiorum consensu” donated property “in Masche” to Waldsassen by charter dated 1244[1480]m ELISABETH, daughter of --- ([1200/10]-14 Nov 1255).  The primary source which confirms her marriage and the date of her death has not been identified.  The origin of Elisabeth is not known.  The following charter suggests a connection with the Burggrafen von Nürnberg: "Fridericus Lantgravius de Lukenberch" [Elisabeth’s son] granted "feoda nostra…Manlehen…circa Nappurch…exceptis duobus castris Werdenberch et Bliestein" to "Fridericio Burcgravio de Nurenberch avunculo nostro" [Friedrich III Burggraf von Nürnberg] by charter dated 2 Jun 1284[1481].  Burggraf Friedrich [III] was probably born in the 1120s, considering his first marriage which is dated to the mid- to late 1240s.  This would be late for the wife of Gerhard [III] Landgraf von Leuchtenberg to have been his sister, considering that her children consented to a donation in 1244 and were therefore probably young adults at that time.  Another possibility is that Elisabeth was related to Friedrich’s mother Clementia, in which case the term "avunculus" must have been used used loosely in the 2 Jun 1284 document.  Gebhard [III] & his wife had two children: 

i)          FRIEDRICH [II] (-after 2 Jun 1284).  “Gebhardus Lantgravius de Lukenberge cum Friderici et Gebehardi filiorum consensu” donated property “in Masche” to Waldsassen by charter dated 1244[1482]Landgraf von Leuchtenberg.  “Fridericus et Gebhardus germani Landgravii de Lukkenberge” donated “Gertrudem Crebzengesitz nuptam” to Waldsassen monastery by charter dated 21 Oct 1255[1483].  “Fridericus et Gebehardus fratres Landgravii de Lukenberge, mediante domino Diepoldo antiquo Landgravio patruo eorum” donated property to Waldsassen “Gebhardi patris antiquam collationem recognescentes” by charter dated 26 Apr 1259[1484].  “Fridericus et Gevehardus fratres Landgravii de Lukenberch” confirmed that “Elisabetha Landgavia” donated property “in villa Lachowe” to Waldsassen by charter dated 21 Dec 1275[1485].  "Fridericus Lantgravius de Luickenberg…cum filio nostro Friderico" pledged "castrum nostrum Culme" to "domino Friderico Burcgravio de Nurenberg" for a loan by charter dated 10 Apr 1281[1486].  "Fridericus Lantgravius de Lukenberch" granted "feoda nostra…Manlehen…circa Nappurch…exceptis duobus castris Werdenberch et Bliestein" to "Fridericio Burcgravio de Nurenberch avunculo nostro" by charter dated 2 Jun 1284[1487]m firstly ELISABETH von Ortenberg, daughter of RAPOTO II Pfalzgraf von Bayern Graf von Ortenberg & his wife Udilhilde von Dillingen (-[10 Jul], [25 Aug 1273/21 Dec 1275]).  The necrology of Kaisheim records the death "VI Id Jul" of "Elizabeth lantgravia soror comitem de Ötingen"[1488].  It is not certain that this entry refers to the first wife of Landgraf Friedrich [II] but her sister was married to a Graf von Oettingen.  Wittmann notes her as “eine[r] geborne[n] Gräfin von Ortenburg[1489].  “Fridericus et Gevehardus fratres Landgravii de Lukenberch” confirmed that “Elisabetha Landgavia” donated property “in villa Lachowe” to Waldsassen by charter dated 21 Dec 1275[1490]m secondly (before 8 Dec 1282) as her first husband, ISENTRUD Vögtin von Strassberg, daughter of --- (-after 1300, bur Waldsassen).  The primary source which confirms her two marriages has not yet been identified.  She married secondly (before 28 Sep 1297) Hermann von Lichtenberg.  Friedrich [II] & his first wife had three children: 

(a)       FRIEDRICH (-27 Mar 1329, bur Waldsassen).  "Fridericus Lantgravius de Luickenberg…cum filio nostro Friderico" pledged "castrum nostrum Culme" to "domino Friderico Burcgravio de Nurenberg" for a loan by charter dated 10 Apr 1281[1491].  Abbot of Langheim 1304.  Abbot of Ebrach 1308.  Bishop of Eichstätt 1328.  The Gesta Episcoporum Eichstetensium records the installation in 1328 of "Fridericus frater domini lantgravii de Lichenberch" as Bishop of Eichstätt[1492]

The relationships between the following two individuals and the main Leuchtenberg family have not been ascertained. 

 

1.         [GEBHARD von Leuchtenberg (-after 23 Feb 1200).  Landgraf von Leuchtenberg.  “Fridericus Burgravius de Nurenberch” pledged “castrum Valchenberch” to Waldsassen monastery “per nobilem virum Gebhardum Landgravium de Lukenberge” by charter dated 23 Feb 1200[1506].  If this document is accurate, the chronology suggests that Gebhard was a brother of Landgraf Diepold [I].  However, this is the only reference found to this Landgraf Gebhard and it is possible that there is a transcription error and that Diepold [I] was intended.] 

 

2.         [HERMANN (-after 27 Mar 1229).  Landgraf von Leuchtenberg.  “...Hermannus lantgravius de Liukinberge...” witnessed the charter dated 27 Mar 1229 under which Ludwig Duke of Bavaria settled a dispute involving property of Passau church[1507].  Wittmann suggests an error in this document and that “Herman von Lichtenberg” was indicated, highlighting the absence of the name Hermann in the main Leuchtenberg family[1508].  This does not explain why the individual is called “lantgravius” in the text: a more likely explanation is that the error lies in “Liukinberge” and that the individual concerned was Hermann II Landgraf of Thuringia, who had succeeded his father in 1227.] 

 

3.         [BERTHOLD (-after 1 Oct 1237).  Landgraf von Leuchtenberg.  “...Bertholdus landgravius de Lucbrenberc [Leuchtenberg]...” witnessed the charter dated 1 Oct 1237 under which Emperor Friedrich II confirmed freedoms of Mantua[1509].  Wittmann suggests an omission of wording in this document which should maybe read “Berthold Markgraf von Hohenburg, Diepold [or Gebhard] Landgraf von Leuchtenberg”, highlighting the absence of the name Berthold in the main Leuchtenberg family[1510].] 

 

 

The primary sources which confirm the parentage and marriages of the following members of this family have not yet been identified, unless otherwise stated below. 

 

GEBHARD [V] von Leuchtenberg, son of GEBHARD [IV] Landgraf von Leuchtenberg & his wife Elisabeth von Ortenberg (-[12 Aug/10 Nov] 1293)Landgraf von Leuchtenberg.  “Gebhardus landgravius dictus de Luckenberg” renounced fiefs he held from the church of Eichstädt by charter dated 5 Aug 1283[1511]

J.      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[1544].  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[1545].  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[1546].  “Chunradus et Fridericus filius suus burggravii de Nüremberg” confirmed a donation to the Teutonic Knights by charter dated 1241[1547].  "…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[1548].  "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…"[1549].  "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[1550].  "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…"[1551]

m [firstly] CLEMENTIA, daughter of ---.  Her marriage is confirmed by the charter dated 8 Sep 1269 under which [her son] “Fridericus burgravius de Nurenberc” donated “curiam suam in Oberndorf”, held in usufruct by “nobilis domina Alheidis quondam Palatina Bawarie ipsius Burcgravii soror” to Kloster Heilsbronn for the anniversary of “bone memorie matris sue Clementis”, with the consent of “uxoris sue Elyszabeth ac predicte sororis et trium quas tunc habuit filiarum[1552].  The property in question being held by the donor’s sister suggests that it was inherited from their mother.  The editor of the compilation indicates that Oberndorf is located in Markt Erlbach, Bavaria, which is about 30 kilometres west of Nürnberg south of Neustadt.  No indication has been found of the ownership is this location, which could provide a clue about Clementia’s family origin. 

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 [three] children.  In addition to these children, Elisabeth wife of Gebhard [III] Landgraf von Leuchtenberg is sometimes shown as the sister of Friedrich III Burggraf von Nürnberg.  This is based on the following charter: "Fridericus Lantgravius de Lukenberch" [Elisabeth’s son] granted "feoda nostra…Manlehen…circa Nappurch…exceptis duobus castris Werdenberch et Bliestein" to "Fridericio Burcgravio de Nurenberch avunculo nostro" [Burggraf Friedrich III] by charter dated 2 Jun 1284[1553].  Burggraf Friedrich was probably born in the 1120s, considering his first marriage which is dated to the mid- to late 1240s.  This would be late for the wife of Gerhard [III] Landgraf von Leuchtenberg to have been his sister, considering that her children consented to a donation in 1244 and were therefore probably young adults at that time.  This would place Elisabeth’s birth in [1200/10].  Another possibility is that Elisabeth was related to Friedrich’s mother Clementia, in which case the term "avunculus" must have been used used loosely in the 2 Jun 1284 document. 

1.         [[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"[1554].  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"[1555].  Brinckmeier quotes a charter of "Emichs IV und Friedrichs III" dated 10 Mar 1263 which refers to "post obitum nobilis domine Agnetis comitisse"[1556]m [as his second wife,] FRIEDRICH [III] Graf von Leiningen, son of SIMON [II] Graf von Saarbrücken & his wife Luitgard von Leiningen (-1237).] 

2.         FRIEDRICH (-1297, after 12 May).  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.  “Chunradus et Fridericus filius suus burggravii de Nüremberg” confirmed a donation to the Teutonic Knights by charter dated 1241[1557].  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…"[1558]

3.         ADELHEID (-19 Oct 1304, bur Nürnberg Barfüsserkloster).  “Alheidis relicta quondam comitis palatini Bawarie Rapotonis et filia nostra Elizabet” founded Kloster Raitenhaslach, with the consent of “Friderici iunioris Burchravii de Nurnberch”, by charter dated 3 Jun 1254[1559].  "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[1560].  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 were born from the same marriage of their father.  This suggestion is corroborated by the charter dated 8 Sep 1269 under which [her brother] “Fridericus burgravius de Nurenberc” donated “curiam suam in Oberndorf”, held in usufruct by “nobilis domina Alheidis quondam Palatina Bawarie ipsius Burcgravii soror” to Kloster Heilsbronn for the anniversary of “bone memorie matris sue Clementis”, with the consent of “uxoris sue Elyszabeth ac predicte sororis et trium quas tunc habuit filiarum[1561].  "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"[1562]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: 

4.         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, indicating that he was probablby 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[1563]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 ipsius Burcravii senioris Elizabetam iuniorem" by charter dated 7 Feb 1272[1564].  "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][1565].  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[1566].  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[1567].  "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[1568].  "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…"[1569].  “Chunrat der alte Burcgraue von Nurnberch” founded anniversaries at Spalt for himself and “unser Hausfrowen frowe Agnesen” after their deaths, naming “unser tohter frowen Agnesen tze Scheftershoim”, by charter dated 29 May 1313[1570].  “Cunrad Burchgraue ze Nurmberg” recommended his foundation at Spalt to “unserm...vœtern hern Fridrichen Burchgrauen ze Nurmberg” by charter dated 30 Mar 1314[1571]m firstly AGNES von Hohenlohe, daughter of ALBRECHT von Hohenlohe zu Uffenheim & his first wife Kunigunde von Henneberg (-after 20 Jun 1288).  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"[1572].  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[1573]m secondly ([before 16 Jun 1294]) AGNES von Hirschberg, daughter of GEBHARD [IV] Graf von Hirschberg & his second wife Sophie of Bavaria [Wittelsbach] ([after 1260]-after 13 Jul 1314).  The primary source which confirms her parentage has not yet been identified.  "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[1574].  "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…"[1575].  “Chunrat der alte Burcgraue von Nurnberch” founded anniversaries at Spalt for himself and “unser Hausfrowen frowe Agnesen” after their deaths, naming “unser tohter frowen Agnesen tze Scheftershoim”, by charter dated 29 May 1313[1576].  “Agnes die alte Burggräfin zu Nürnberg” requested that “unser...Herr Bruder Philipp Bischoff zu Eichstätt” pay the debt owing to her to Spalt, naming “Herr Conrad seeliger der alte Burggraf von Nürnberg unser wirth...dieweil er lebte”, by charter dated 13 Jul 1314[1577].  Konrad II & his first wife had eight children:
