INTRODUCTION

 

 

The county of Nassau emerged in the mid-12th century on the banks of the lower river Lahn, near its confluence with the Rhine, in the present-day German state of Rheinland-Pfalz.  The precise process by which the Nassau family gained possession of the county is obscure.  In a charter dated 1 Apr 1158, Hillin Archbishop of Trier records that "castrum de Nassouwe" had previously belonged to the church of Worms but that "Ruberti et Arnoldi de Luremburg" had built a castle against the wishes of the church, and that "postmodum…Beatrix comitissa et coheredes eius…filii Ruberti et Arnoldi de Luremburg" had requested settlement of the dispute which was mediated by "Gerlaci de Isemburch et Everhardi de Burgensheim"[1]The family of the Grafen von Nassau were descended from the Grafen von Laurenburg.  The family estates were divided in 1255 between the brothers Walram [II] Graf von Nassau and Otto [I] Graf von Nassau, ancestors of the two prolific branches of the family which became extinct in the male line in 1912 (with the death of Wilhelm IV Grand Duke of Luxembourg) and 1890 (with the death of Willem III King of the Netherlands) respectively.  

 

This document also shows the Grafen von Diez, whose territories were inherited by the Grafen von Nassau, the Grafen von Isenburg, Grafen von Sayn und Wittgenstein, Grafen von Solms and Grafen von Wied, all of whose lands were adjacent to the county of Nassau.

m (before 1135) BEATRIX van Limburg, daughter of WALRAM [II] Graaf van Limburg Duke of Lower Lotharingia & his wife Jutta van Gelre (-12 Jul after 1164).  Her parentage and marriage are confirmed by the charter dated 1151 under which Henri Bishop of Liège confirmed the donations by "domina Jutta, nobilissima matrona uxor ducis Walrami de Lemburg" to Rolduc abbey, which records the presence at her burial in Rolduc of "…Arnoldus quoque filius Ruberti comitis de Lunneburg natus ex domina Beatrice filia præfatæ dominæ…"[19]Hillin Archbishop of Trier records, in a charter dated 1 Apr 1158, that "castrum de Nassouwe" had previously belonged to the church of Worms but that "Ruberti et Arnoldi de Luremburg" had built a castle against the wishes of the church, and that "postmodum…Beatrix comitissa et coheredes eius…filii Ruberti et Arnoldi de Luremburg" had requested settlement of the dispute which was mediated by "Gerlaci de Isemburch et Everhardi de Burgensheim"[20].  This document suggests that Beatrix survived both her sons and acted as head of the family on behalf of her grandsons.

1.         ARNOLD [II] von Nassau (-after 1 Apr 1159).  His parentage is confirmed by the charter dated 1151 under which Henri Bishop of Liège confirmed the donations by "domina Jutta, nobilissima matrona uxor ducis Walrami de Lemburg" to Rolduc abbey, which records the presence at her burial in Rolduc of "…Arnoldus quoque filius Ruberti comitis de Lunneburg natus ex domina Beatrice filia præfatæ dominæ…"[21]"…Comes Arnoldus de Lurenburc…" witnessed the charter dated 1148 under which Heinrich [I] Archbishop of Mainz confirmed a donation of property to Kloster Ichtershausen by "Frideruna linea nobis consanguinitatis propinqua et filius eius Marquardus de Grumbach"[22]m ---.  The name of Arnold's wife is not known.  Arnold [II] & his wife had one child: 

a)         RUPRECHT [III] "der Streitbare" (-in Palestine 1191 or after)The Vita Lodewici comitis de Arnstein names "Ruberti comitis…qui in expeditione imperatoris Frederici peregrinus obiit in partibus transmarinis" as the son of "Arnoldus comes", although the source appears to confuse Arnold [II] father of Ruprecht [III] with Arnold [I], son of Dudo[23]Graf von Nassau.  A manuscript dated to end 13th/early 14th century records "Rupertus comes de Nassowe et uxor eius Elysa et filius eorum Hermannus…"[24]"Rupertus comes de Nassowe…" subscribed a charter dated end 1173 under which Christian Archbishop of Mainz confirmed a donation to Kloster Tiefenthal[25]Vogt of Kloster Schönau 1172.  Vogt of Koblenz 1182.  Crusader 1189.  m (before 1169) ELISABETH von Leiningen Gräfin von Schaumburg, daughter of --- (-20 Jun [1235/38]).  A manuscript dated to end 13th/early 14th century records "Rupertus comes de Nassowe et uxor eius Elysa et filius eorum Hermannus…"[26]"Elysa comitissa dicta de Schowenburg, relicta…Ruperti comitis de Nassowe" sold property to Kloster Johannisberg, with the consent of "Hermanni comitis de Virneburg et Luccardis conthoralis ipsius filie nostre advocatiam et iudicium ville Steinheim", by charter dated 27 Feb 1204[27]The necrology of Arnstein an der Lahn records the death 20 Jun of "Elizabetis comitisse de Nassauwe, que legavit nobis elemosinam bonam"[28].  Graf Ruprecht [III] & his wife had two children:
