INTRODUCTION

 

 

The castle of Württemberg was built by an obscure Swabian noble family near Stuttgart.  The family was one of many which profited from the dispute between Konrad IV King of Germany and the papal party, led by Willem II Count of Holland as its figurehead and anti-king, in the mid-13th century.  The reaction against Staufen control in Swabia enabled the local nobility to assert their autonomy, the duchy of Swabia virtually disappearing as a territorial unit and dissolving into a collection of territorial fragments[1].  The eventual fall-out was the establishment of the Markgrafen von Baden and the Dukes of Württemberg as the major Swabian lords. 

 

The gau in the Baden-Württemberg area are best described in three lines from west to east. In the southern line lay Breisgau in which the castle of Zähringen was built, Alpgau around the monastery of St Blasius, Hegau to the north-west of Lake Constance north of the river Rhine, Linzgau, Nibelgau and Argengau to the north and north-east of Lake Constance, and Alpengau in the east bordering the Bavarian/Carinthian territories.  The nobility in the area east of Zähringen are grouped together into the chapter “Southern Württemberg” in the present document.  To the north of this line, lay Ortenau east of the river Rhine and Alsace to the west, Bertoldsbaar between the rivers Neckar and Danube, Duria, and Augstgau along the river Lech south of the town of Augsburg, shown in the chapter “Central Württemberg”.  In the extreme northern part of Swabia lay Neckargau, Swiggerstal, Trachgau, Flisgau, Alb and Ries, grouped into the chapter "North-east Württemberg" in the present document. 

 

 

 

 

Chapter 1.    GRAFEN von WÜRTTEMBERG, early 12th century to 1495

 

 

 

1.         ADALBERT (-before 1120)Graf von Württemberg.  The Chronicon Wirtembergense (which records events until the early 16th century, so is probable unreliable in respect of events 300 years earlier) records that “Adelbertus comes Wirtembergensis” lived “circa 1100[2]m LUITGARD, daughter of [HEINRICH von Wasserberg & his wife Gisela ---] (-after 1120).  The Chronicon Wirtembergense records that “Adelbertus comes Wirtembergensis” married “Luitgardam nobilissimam comitissam, sororem Engelberti de Hallone ex Norico”, adding that as a widow she became a nun “in monasterio Berone non longe a sancto Blasio in Hercinio[3].  This parentage appears impossible from a chronological point of view.  One possibility is that Luitgard was a member of the previous generation of the family, although it is also possible that the source is completely inaccurate.  Adalbert & his wife had four children: 

a)         BERTHOLD .  The Chronicon Wirtembergense names “Berchtoldum, Conradum, Adelbertum et N. filiam” as the four children of “Adelbertus comes Wirtembergensis” and his wife “Luitgardam nobilissimam comitissam, sororem Engelberti de Hallone ex Norico[4]

b)         KONRAD .  The Chronicon Wirtembergense names “Berchtoldum, Conradum, Adelbertum et N. filiam” as the four children of “Adelbertus comes Wirtembergensis” and his wife “Luitgardam nobilissimam comitissam, sororem Engelberti de Hallone ex Norico”, adding that and “sororis suæ filius” donated property to “monasterium S.

d)         daughter .  The Chronicon Wirtembergense names “Berchtoldum, Conradum, Adelbertum et N. filiam” as the four children of “Adelbertus comes Wirtembergensis” and his wife “Luitgardam nobilissimam comitissam, sororem Engelberti de Hallone ex Norico[7]m ---.  One child: 

i)          son .  The Chronicon Wirtembergense names “Berchtoldum, Conradum, Adelbertum et N. filiam” as the four children of “Adelbertus comes Wirtembergensis” and his wife “Luitgardam nobilissimam comitissam, sororem Engelberti de Hallone ex Norico”, adding that and “sororis suæ filius” donated property to “monasterium S.

B.      GRAFEN von AICHELBERG, GRAFEN von MERKENBURG

 

 

1.         --- (-after 1228).  Graf von Aichelberg.  He is referred to, but not named, in the charter dated 1228 quoted below.  [“...Comes C. de Eichelberg...” witnessed the charter dated 1232 under which Heinrich VII King of Germany converted "villam Tatinriet" in "oppidum"[181].  It is uncertain whether “C” in this document represents the father of Graf Egino [I], or whether it is a mistranscription for “E” and refers either to Egino [I]’s father or Egino [I] himself.  “...Comes E. de Aichelberc...” witnessed the charter dated 26 Oct 1232 issued by Heinrich VII King of Germany for Kloster Kreuzlingen[182].  As with the previous document, it is not known whether this charter refers to Egino [I] or his father.]  m --- von Otterswang, daughter of MANEGOLD von Otterswang & his wife ---.  “Rudolfus minister de Rammesperc” relinquished “curtem in Hallendorf”, which he held from “comite de Eichelberc” whose wife had inherited the property after the death of “patre domino Manegoldo de Otolfeswanc” and who now donated it to “S. Petro in Augia”, with the consent of “uxoris sue et filii sui comitis Egenonis, quem tunc unicum habebat”, by charter dated 1228[183].  --- & his wife had [two or more] children: 

a)         EGINO [I] (-before 1259).  Rudolfus minister de Rammesperc” relinquished “curtem in Hallendorf”, which he held from “comite de Eichelberc” whose wife had inherited the property after the death of “patre domino Manegoldo de Otolfeswanc” and who now donated it to “S. Petro in Augia”, with the consent of “uxoris sue et filii sui comitis Egenonis, quem tunc unicum habebat”, by charter dated 1228[184].  [“...Comes C. de Eichelberg...” witnessed the charter dated 1232 under which Heinrich VII King of Germany converted "villam Tatinriet" in "oppidum"[185].  It is uncertain whether “C” in this document represents the father of Graf Egino [I], or whether it is a mistranscription for “E” and refers either to Egino [I]’s father or Egino [I] himself.  “...Comes E. de Aichelberc...” witnessed the charter dated 26 Oct 1232 issued by Heinrich VII King of Germany for Kloster Kreuzlingen[186].  As with the previous document, it is not known whether this charter refers to Egino [I] or his father.]  Graf von Aichelberg.  "E. comes de Aichelberc" confirmed an exchange of property by “ministerialis noster Hainricus miles de Otolswane” with Kloster Boze by charter dated 24 May 1237[187].  "Egeno comes de Aychelberc" donated property “apud Azenberc” to Kloster Boze by charter dated 24 May 1237, witnessed by “Otto de Otolveswanc...” [presumably a maternal relative of the donor][188].  "E. dictus comes de Aichilberc" renounced rights over property in favour of Kloster Adelberg by charter dated 1245[189]m ---.  The name of Egino’s wife is not known.  The reference to “Merkenberg” in relation to her son suggests that she may have been heiress of this property.  Egino [I] & his wife had one child: 

i)          DIEPOLD [I] von Merkenberg (-[1268/7 Mar 1270]).  "...Diepoldi de Merkenbec..." witnessed the charter dated 19 Apr 1254 which records an exchange between Ulrich Graf von Württemberg and Heinrich Graf von Fürstenberg[190]Graf von Aichelberg.  “Diepoldus comes de Aichelberc” donated property “in villa Tagebrechtiswillar” to Kloster Salem, in compensation for damage caused by “pie memorie Egenone patre quondam suo”, by charter dated 1259[191]m AGNES von Spitzenberg, daughter of EBERHARD Graf von Helfenstein & his wife --- (-after 7 Mar 1270).  Her family origin and marriage are confirmed by the charter dated 7 Mar 1270 under which [her brother] "Ludewicus dictus comes de Spizzinberg et filius noster Eberhardus" sold property “in Beringin” to “sorori nostre Agneti quondam comitisse de Aichilberch[192].  Her deceased husband is not named in this document, but the chronology suggests that it is more likely that he was Diepold [I] than Egino [I]. 

b)         --- (-before 1228).  The existence of other children, then deceased, is suggested by the wording of the charter dated 1228 quoted above. 

 

 

Two brothers: 

1.         DIEPOLD [II] (-after 16 Jan 1289).  Graf von Aichelberg"D[iepoldus] comes de Aichelberg" confirmed a sale of property to Kloster Bebenhausen by charter dated 30 Apr 1272[193].  Assuming that the wife of Diepold [I] is correctly identified as suggested above, Diepold [II] was presumably his successor.  The primary source which confirms his parentage has not been identified, although it looks likely that he was the son of Diepold [I].  "Graf Diepold von Aichelberg" donated property in Mannsberg to Kloster Baindt, for the souls of his parents, by charter dated 1282, sealed (in the absence of his own seal) by the seal of “Alberti comitis de Hohemberc avunculi mei[194].  The latter is identified as Albrecht [II] "der Minnesänger" Graf von Hohenberg.  The precise family relationship between the two has not been ascertained, although one possibility is that Graf Albrecht’s first wife (who has not otherwise been identified) was the aunt of Diepold [II] (either on his father’s or mother’s side of the family, depending on whether the term “avunculus” was used in its strict sense of maternal uncle or not).  "Diepoldus et Ulricus de Aichelberg comites fratres" granted freedoms to property in Altbach by charter dated 8 Feb 1283[195].  "Diepoldus comes de Aichilberc..." witnessed the charter dated 16 Jan 1289 under which Hermann Herzog von Teck donated property to Kloster Kirchheim[196]m ---.  The name of Diepold’s wife is not known.  Diepold [II] & his wife had one child:

C.      GRAFEN von BERG, MARKGRAFEN von BURGAU

 

The main centre of operations of the Grafen von Berg was near the town of Ehingen, on the river Danube, about 15 kilometres south-west of Ulm and about 40 kilometres south-east of Tübingen.  The family acquired the Markgrafschaft von Burgau (about 20 kilometres east of Ulm) in the early 13th century, and the county of Schelklingen to the north of Ehingen in the mid-13th century.  The Grafen von Berg enjoyed sufficient influence in the early 12th century to arrange marriages into the Polish and Bohemian royal families.  The reason why a relatively obscure Swabian comital family was able to arrange these high profile marriages has not been explained.  Stälin suggests that they were arranged by Otto Bishop of Bamberg who, before his appointment as bishop, had accompanied Judith of Germany (sister of Emperor Heinrich IV) for her marriage to Władysław Herman Prince of Poland and subsequently maintained his contacts with the eastern European Slavic rulers.  Stälin speculates that Bishop Otto, whose family origin is not known with certainty, was closely related to the Berg family[200].  The family’s influence in imperial court circles persisted during the later 12th century with four of the sons of Diepold [II] being appointed bishops of Passau (two), Würzburg and Freising. 

 

 

1.         POPPO (-11 Jul ----, bur ---, transferred to Zwiefalten)Graf von BergThe necrology of Zwiefalten records the death "V Id Jul" of "Bobbo com de Berge, pater Hainrici senioris comitis de Berge"[201]m SOPHIA, daughter of --- (-26 Jun [1110], bur ---, transferred to Zwiefalten).  Ortlieb's Chronicon of Zwiefalten names "Bobbonis comitis et Sophiæ ipsius uxori", when recording that their son Heinrich transferred their remains to Zwiefalten[202]The necrology of Zwiefalten records the death "VI Kal Jul" of "Sophia com de Berge"[203]Europäische Stammtafeln[204] shows Sophia, wife of Graf Poppo, as Zsófia of Hungary, daughter of Salomon King of Hungary.  The source on which this is based has not so far been identified, but it appears unlikely chronologically.  The granddaughter of Poppo and Sophia, Salome (second wife of Bolesław III Duke of Poland), was born "before 1101" which, assuming she was her parents' oldest child (which is not known), would place the birth of her father in [1080] at the latest.  If it is assumed that her paternal grandmother bore her own first child at the early age of 15, this would still place Sophia's birth in [1065] at the latest, when the wife of King Salamon was only about 11 years old.  Until further evidence comes to light, it is assumed that the Hungarian affiliation of Poppo's wife was originally proposed as a hypothesis to explain the unusual first name "Salome" borne by Sophia's supposed daughter and granddaughter.  However, the necrologies of Swabian monasteries show that the name "Salome", although not common, did exist on its own, not as a female form of "Salamon", during this period.  Poppo & his wife had three children: 

a)         HEINRICH [I] (-Zwiefalten 24 Sep before 1116, bur Zwiefalten).  Ortlieb's Chronicon of Zwiefalten names "Heinricus de Berge" as son of "Bobbonis comitis et Sophiæ ipsius uxori"[205]Graf von Berg.  He became a monk at Zwiefalten.  The necrology of Zwiefalten records the death "VIII Kal Oct" of "Heinricus com senior de Berge…sepultus in Capitolio...cum patre suo Poppone et fratribus suis" and his donation of “curiam Oppinthal[206]m ADELHEID von Mochental, daughter of [DIEPOLD [II] von Giengen Markgraf im Nordgau & his wife Liutgarde von Zähringen] (-1 Dec [1125]).  The primary source which confirms her precise parentage has not yet been identified, although the following necrology entry indicates her possible family origin.  It is, however, unusual for a deceased married lady to be referred to in contemporary necrologies with a comital title derived from her birth family.  It is therefore possible that the reference to “Mochental” relates to an otherwise unrecorded second husband.  The necrology of Zwiefalten records the death "Kal Dec" of "Adelheit com de Mochintal et c v, mater Salome ducisse"[207].  Heinrich & his wife had six children: 

i)          HEINRICH [II] (-24 Feb before 1127, bur Zwiefalten).  Berthold's Chronicon of Zwiefalten names "Heinricus comes" as son of "Heinricus senior comes de Monte"[208]Graf von BergThe necrology of Zwiefalten records the death "VI Kal Mar" of "Heinricus n c m com iunior de Berge…huius sorores Salome ducissa, Richinza ducissa et Sophia ducissa" and his donation of “predium Anchilehouen[209]

ii)         DIEPOLD [II] (-19 May [1160/65]).  His parentage is confirmed by the Translatio Manus sancti Stephani which names "Salome uxor [Bolezlai Bolionorum ducis] filia Heinrici comitis de Berge sororque Diepoldi"[210]Graf von Berg

-         see below

iii)        RAPOTO (-25 Jun after 1163).  Berthold's Chronicon of Zwiefalten names "Rapto eius alter filius [=Heinricus senior comes de Monte]"[211].  "…Diepoldo et fratre eius Rapotone comitibus de Berge…" signed the charter dated [1134/37] which records the foundation of Kloster Salem[212].  "…Comes Diepoldus de Berge ac frater suus Rapado…" witnessed the charter dated 14 Oct 1139 under which Konrad III King of Germany granted protection to the church of Denkendorf[213].  The History of Salem Monastery lists those present at a court of "duce Friderico", including "Diepoldo et fratre eius Rapotone comitibus de Berge", undated but dateable to [1152][214]Graf von Berg.  "Sex comites…comes Diepoldus et frater suus Rappoto…" witnessed the charter dated 1163 under which Ulrich Abbot of Reichenau confirmed donations to the abbey[215].  According to Europäische Stammtafeln, he was possible ancestor of the Grafen von Wartstein[216]Presumably this is based on the coincidence of the name in the necrology of Zwiefalten which records the death "VII Kal Jul" of "Rapoto comes de Wartstein"[217]

iv)       SALOME (before 1101-27 Jul 1144).  The Chronica Boemorum names "Almuse" as wife of "dux Bolezlaus"[218]Berthold's Chronicon of Zwiefalten names (in order) "Richinza ductrix Boemiæ, Sophia ductrix Moraviæ, Salome ductrix Poloniæ" as sisters of "Heinricus comes [et] Rapot", specifying that Salome was "uxor Bolezlaus dux Boloniæ"[219].  The Chronica principum Polonie records that the second wife of "Boleslaus" was "ex Theutunica"[220]The necrology of Zwiefalten records the death "VI Kal Aug 1144" of "Salome ducisse Bolonie"[221]m ([Mar/Jul] 1115) as his second wife, BOLESŁAW III "Krzywousty/Wrymouth" Duke of Poland, son of WŁADYSŁAW I HERMAN Prince of Poland & his second wife Judith of Bohemia (20 Aug [1086]-28 Oct 1138). 

v)        RICHINZA (-27 Sep 1125).  Berthold's Chronicon of Zwiefalten names (in order) "Richinza ductrix Boemiæ, Sophia ductrix Moraviæ, Salome ductrix Poloniæ" as sisters of "Heinricus comes [et] Rapot", specifying in the subsequent paragraph that Richinza was "uxor Vlatizlaus qui et Lauzlan dux Boemiæ"[222]The necrology of Zwiefalten records the death "V Kal Oct" of "Richinza ductrix Boemie filie Heinrici comitis senioris"[223]m ([1110]) VLADISLAV I Duke of the Bohemians, son of VRATISLAV II Duke of the Bohemians & his third wife Swiętoslawa [Svatana] of Poland (-12 Apr 1125, bur Prague St Maria). 

vi)       SOPHIE (-31 May [1126]).  Berthold's Chronicon of Zwiefalten names (in order) "Richinza ductrix Boemiæ, Sophia ductrix Moraviæ, Salome ductrix Poloniæ" as sisters of "Heinricus comes [et] Rapot", specifying in the subsequent paragraph that Sophia was "uxor Ottonis ducis"[224]The necrology of Zwiefalten records the death "II Kal Jun" of "Sophia cv et ductrix Moravie, soror Salome ducisse"[225]m (after 1113) OTTO II "Niger" Duke of Moravia in Olmütz und Brünn, son of OTTO I "der Schöne" Duke of Moravia in Olmütz and Brno & his wife Ludmilla [Euphemia] of Hungary (-28 Feb 1126). 

b)         [SALOME (-13 Jun ----).  The primary source which confirms her parentage and marriage has not been identified.  The suspicion is that her suggested family origin is speculative, based on her supposed niece bearing the same unusual name.  She became a nun at Zwiefalten.  m (before 1103) HEINRICH von Emerkingen, son of --- (-5 Aug ----).] 

c)         DIEPOLD (-bur ---, transferred to Zwiefalten).  Ortlieb's Chronicon of Zwiefalten names "parvuli filii [=Bobbonis comitis et Sophiæ ipsius uxori] Diepoldi", when recording that Graf Heinrich [I] transferred his remains to Zwiefalten[226]

 

 

DIEPOLD [II] von Berg, son of HEINRICH Graf von Berg & his wife Adelheid von Mochenthal (-19 May [1163/65]).  His parentage is confirmed by the Translatio Manus sancti Stephani which names "Salome uxor [Bolezlai Bolionorum ducis] filia Heinrici comitis de Berge sororque Diepoldi"[227]Graf von Berg.  "…Diepoldo et fratre eius Rapotone comitibus de Berge…" signed the charter dated [1134/37] which records the foundation of Kloster Salem[228].  "…Comes Diepoldus de Berge ac frater suus Rapado…" witnessed the charter dated 14 Oct 1139 under which Konrad III King of Germany granted protection to the church of Denkendorf[229].  “Dipoldus comes et filius eius Bertholdus de Berge” witnessed a charter dated 1160 for the church of Roggenburg[230].  "Sex comites…comes Diepoldus et frater suus Rappoto…" witnessed the charter dated 1163 under which Ulrich Abbot of Reichenau confirmed donations to the abbey[231]The necrology of Zwiefalten records the death "XIV Kal Jun" of "Diepoldus com de Monte…huius fuere sorores Salome, Sophia, Richinza ducisse"[232]

m GISELA von Andechs, daughter of BERTHOLD Graf von Andechs & his first wife Sophie of Istria (-8 Apr after 1150).  The De Fundatoribus Monasterii Diessenses names "Gisilam comitissam de Perg" as one of the daughters of "Bertoldus comes de Andehs" and his wife Sophia, listed her last of their children[233].  The necrology of Zwiefalten records the death "VI Id Apr" of "Gisila com de Berge"[234]

Graf Heinrich [III] & his wife had five children: 

1.         ULRICH [II] (-[15 Nov 1264/13 Dec 1267]).  “Heinricus marchio de Burgovve” donated property to Kloster Kaisheim by charter dated 1231, subscribed by “Heinricus senior marchio et filii sui Vlricus et Heinricus[263].  “Heinricus marchio de Burgowe” donated property “in villa Kezze” to the church of Würzburg, with the consent of “consorte sua Adelheidi et filiis suis Ulrico et Heinrico”, by charter dated 11 Jan 1240[264]Graf von Berg.  Heinrich Bishop of Constanz confirmed that "comes Vlricus de Berga" renounced rights in the Vogtei of Kloster Marchthal by charter dated 15 May 1242[265].  "Ulricus…comes de Berga" confirmed commitments made to Kloster Marchthal by "Heinricus marchio de Burgowe pater meus bone memorie" by charter dated 8 Mar 1249[266].  Graf von Schelklingen:  “Heinricus marchio de Burgowe, Vlricus comes de Schelchelingen” witnessed the charter dated 6 Jul 1251 under which “[der] Graf Ulrich von Helfenstein [=Hellenstein] mit seinen Söhnen Degenhard und Ulrich” relating to the pledging of property in Nördlingen[267].  "Adilhadis quondam marchionissa…de Burgowe" donated property at Bierlingen to Kloster Kaisheim, for the soul of "bone memorie…mariti mei H. marchionis", with the consent of "H. marchionis de Burgowe nec non…Wl. comitis de Berge filiorum meorum", by charter dated 1252[268].  “Ulricus comes de Berge” donated his part of “decimæ in Volckersheim” by charter dated 15 Nov 1264[269]m ---.  The name of Ulrich’s wife is not known.  Ulrich [II] & his wife had four children: 

a)         ULRICH [III] (-[10/11] Nov 1319)Graf von Berg.  “Comes Ulricus de Berge, Heinricus et Egino fratres comitis” issued a charter dated 13 Dec 1267 concerning property at Maselheim[270].  “Ulricus...comes de Berge” exchanged property with “Sigboto und Rudolf von Hundersingen”, with the consent of “fratrum suorum Heinrici, Eginonis et Gebehardi”, by charter dated 3 Mar 1268[271].  "Hainricus…comes…de Schalkelingen" donated property to the Teutonic Knights of Ulm, with the consent of "Ulricus…frater noster comes de Schalkelingen", by charter dated 26 May 1270[272].  Schmid records that “Ulrich, Heinrich und Konrad Grafen Berg genannt von Schelklingen...mit ihrem Vater Ulrich” sold “daz halb Tail an der Burg und Stadt Calw” to Eberhard Graf von Württemberg by charter dated 1308[273]m ---.  The primary source which confirms the identity of Ulrich’s wife has not been identified.  The following documents suggest that she was closely related to the comital families of Calw and Tübingen.  Schmid quotes a charter dated 25 Nov 1301 issued by “Gotfridus C. de T.” at the request of “fratrum nostrorum Ulr. H. et Cun. comitum de Schaeklingen[274], and in a charter dated 2 Apr 1302 “Gotfridus comes de Thuwingen“ recorded an alliance with Kloster Bebenhausen, noting among other matters that “nostri fratres --- comites de Schalkelingen” owed payments due to him “apud civitatem Calwe[275].  Schmid also records that “Ulrich, Heinrich und Konrad Grafen Berg genannt von Schelklingen...mit ihrem Vater Ulrich” sold “daz halb Tail an der Burg und Stadt Calw” to Eberhard Graf von Württemberg by charter dated 1308[276].  The Tübingen family must also have sold their share in Calw to Württemberg at a later date as, in a charter dated 30 Dec 1345, “Grave Wilhalme von Tüwingen“ recorded that “Eberhart und Ulrich Gr. von W. gebrüder unser...Oheime” owed money for “der burg und stat zu Calwe[277].  The most likely explanation for all these references is that Ulrich [III] married, as her second husband, --- von Calw, widow of Rudolf [I] Graf von Tübingen.  If that is correct, their wife was presumably the daughter of Gottfried [II] Graf von Calw or possibly the granddaughter of Adalbert [VI] Graf von Calw. Ulrich [III] & his wife had four children: 

i)          LIUTGARD von Berg ([after 1272]-23 May after 1304).  If Liutgard’s mother is correctly identified above as belonging to the Calw family, her marriage date suggests Liutgard must have been one of her parents’ oldest children.  Another possibility is that she was born from an otherwise unrecorded earlier marriage of her father.  The Chronicon Sindelfingensis records that Rudolf King of Germany attended “in vigil. Katrinæ...ad nuptias comitis Rudolfi Scerer dicti[278].  “Lutgardis...Ulrici comitis de Schelkelingen filia...Rudolfi comitis palatini de Tuwingen dicti Schaerer comitissa” renounced rights over property “in Obernkilch et Rusten” given by her husband “propter nuptias” in favour of Kloster Bebenhausen, by charter dated 29 Aug 1293, witnessed by “Ulrici et Hainrici filiorum præfati Ulrici comitis...[279].  “Rudolfus comes de Tuwingen dictus Schærer” sold “curias...in Altingen sitas dictas Oberfronhof et Niderfronhof...” to Bebenhausen, with the consent of “domine Liugardis comitisse de Schælklingen thori nostri...Cunradi, Ulrici et Hainrici comitum de Schælklingen [...sive de Berge] fratrum germanorum predicte consortis nostre” by charter dated 7 Jul 1299[280]m (24 Nov 1286) RUDOLF [V] "der Scherer" Graf von Tübingen, son of RUDOLF [II] "der Scherer" Graf von Tübingen & his [second wife Adelheid von Eberstein] (-1317 or after).

iii)        HEINRICH von Berg (-after 1308).  “Rudolfus comes de Tuwingen dictus Schærer” sold “curias...in Altingen sitas dictas Oberfronhof et Niderfronhof...” to Bebenhausen, with the consent of “domine Liugardis comitisse de Schælklingen thori nostri...Cunradi, Ulrici et Hainrici comitum de Schælklingen [...sive de Berge] fratrum germanorum predicte consortis nostre” by charter dated 7 Jul 1299[283].  Schmid records that “Ulrich, Heinrich und Konrad Grafen Berg genannt von Schelklingen...mit ihrem Vater Ulrich” sold “daz halb Tail an der Burg und Stadt Calw” to Eberhard Graf von Württemberg by charter dated 1308[284]

(a)       LUITGARD von Berg (-after 6 Feb 1344)m (before Mar 1335) as his first wife, EBERHARD Graf von Werdenberg, son of HEINRICH [I] Graf von Werdenberg in Albeck und Trochtelfingen & his wife Agnes von Württemberg (-27/28 May 1383).

3.         --- .  Her parentage and marriage are indicated by a source which records that [her son] Wilhelm Abbot of St. Gallen was the son of the sister of Heinrich Burggraf von Burgau[325].  Fickler indicates that her name was Elisabeth, based on the following necrology entry[326]: the necrology of Mehrerau records the deaths “XIV Kal Sep” (19 Aug) of “Elisabeth coma. Hugo com. de Monteforti, qui in partibus transmarinis in insula Ctpro sepultus est 1363[327].  Clearly this represents a misinterpretation as “Hugo com.” who died in 1363 could not be Hugo [II].  In addition, there is no link between the two entries “Elisabeth coma” and “Hugo com...”: if there had been a link, Elisabeth’s name would have appeared after Hugo’s (presumably following “et uxor eius...” or similar).  The conclusion is that the name of the wife of Hugo [II] remains unknown.  m HUGO [II] Graf von Montfort, son of HUGO [I] Graf von Montfort [Tübingen] & his wife Mechtild --- (-[11 Aug] [1257/60]).

F.      GRAFEN von GERHAUSEN

 

 

Gerhausen has not yet been identified.  The donation to Schaffhausen, cited below, suggests that it may have been located in the south-east part of Württemberg near the border with present-day Switzerland.  It is possible that the two counts named below belonged to a junior branch of one of the other local comital families.  However, the names Hartmann and Adalbert were too common among late 11th/early 12th century nobility in Swabia to hazard a guess about the family to which they may have been related.  No further references have been found to this comital family after 1116.

2.         FRIEDRICH [IV] von Truhendingen (-[1246/51]).  "…Gerlacus de Butingin, Fridericus de Truhindigin, Ebirhardus dapifer de Waltpurc…" witnessed the charter dated 24 Apr 1222 under which Heinrich VII King of Germany confirmed a donation to Kloster Salem[740].  "…Fridericus de Truheldigen…Heberhardus dapifer de Walpurc…" witnessed the charter dated 6 Nov 1226 under which Heinrich VII King of Germany confirmed property of Kloster Weissenau[741].  "…Rupertus et Ludewicus fratres et comites de Kastel, Fridericus de Truhendingen, Gerlacus de Butingen, Gotfridus et Cunradus fratres de Hohenloch…" witnessed the charter dated 29 Jan 1227 under which Heinrich VII King of Germany confirmed a sale of property to the Teutonic Knights at Mergentheim made by "Heinricus vir nobilis de Egersperge"[742]m --- von Ortenberg, daughter of HEINRICH [I] Graf von Ortenberg & his first wife Božislawa of Bohemia.  Her parentage is suggested by the charter dated 1296 under which "Graf Albrecht von Hals" confirmed a donation to Fürstencelle by "Graf Rapot von Ortenberch, mein Schwager" by charter dated 1296[743].  According to secondary sources, the wife of Albrecht Graf von Hals at that time was the sister of Friedrich [IV] Graf von Truhendingen.  Consistency with this charter requires a loose interpretation of the German "Schwager" (brother-in-law), but it is assumed that other primary sources (not yet identified) confirm the relationship.  Friedrich [IV] & his wife had [four] children: 

a)         [WILLIBURGIS (-26/27 Jan before 1246)Europäische Stammtafeln suggests that she was the daughter of Friedrich [IV] Graf von Truhendingen[744].  The basis for this speculation is not known.  The primary source which confirms her parentage and marriage has not yet been identified.  The necrology of Neresheim records the death "VI Kal Feb" of "Willibirg com de Dilingen"[745].  The necrology of Zwiefalten records the death "VII Kal Feb" of "Willibirc com de Dilingen"[746]m HARTMANN Graf von Dillingen, son of ADALBERT [III] Graf von Dillingen & his wife --- von Bayern (-11 Dec 1258).]

R.      GRAFEN von TÜBINGEN, PFALZGRAFEN

 

 

The title "Pfalzgraf von Schwaben" was borne by the Grafen von Tübingen from 1146.  The role of the holder of the title "Pfalzgraf", of which there was only one in each of the original German provinces, is not known although it was presumably related to a function at the ducal court similar to that of the palatine at the court of the Carolingian emperors[779].  Whatever the origin and original reason for the title, it became attached as an honorific to the name of the geographical base of the family who bore the title from time to time.  Thus, the Tübingen holders of the title were most frequently referred to in contemporary sources as "Pfalzgrafen von Tübingen" instead of the more strictly correct "Pfalzgrafen von Schwaben, Grafen von Tübingen".  According to Arnold[780], the Grafen von Dillingen held the Pfalzgrafschaft prior to 1146 but no trace of this has yet been found in the references to the Dillingen family in contemporary primary sources. 

 

 

1.         --- .  m ---.  An indication of one of her family connections is provided by the charter dated 1 Aug 1087 under which “Bobo” donated property in Gündringen to Kloster Reichenbach, in the presence of “trium comitum...Henrici de Tuingen” in whose county the property was situated “et fratris eius Hugonis et Hermanni eorundem materteræ filii[781].  Her nephew (assuming that “matertera” can be interpreted in its strict sense of maternal aunt), Graf Hermann, has not otherwise been identified.  Hermann was of course a common name among the Swabian nobility, although its association with the family of the Grafen von Sulz should be noted.  Three children: 

a)         HUGO [I] (-after 2 May 1092).  Graf von Tübingen.  He and his brothers founded Kloster Blaubeuren in [1080/85][782].  “Bobo” donated property in Gündringen to Kloster Reichenbach, in the presence of “trium comitum...Henrici de Tuingen” in whose county the property was situated “et fratris eius Hugonis et Hermanni eorundem materteræ filii”, by charter dated 1 Aug 1087[783]"Werinharius de Chilcheim…cum matre mea Richinza" appointed "Ottonis de Chirchberc" to donate property to Schaffhausen St Salvator by charter dated 2 May 1092, witnessed by "comites Hartmannus de Chirchberch, Hartmannus de Gerohusin, Hugo de Tuwingin, Hugo de Cravinegga, Manegoldus de Alshusin…"[784]"Comes Hugo de Tovvingun" donated property "in Sindelingun" to Kloster Reichenbach, for the soul of "fratris sui Heinrici comitis" at the request of "Adelheidis comitisse uxoris eiusdem Heinrici comitis", undated[785].  Pope Urban II granted protection to Kloster Blaubeuren, founded by "Adelheidis comitisse...comitum Hainrici et Hugonis", by charter dated 25 Jan 1099[786]

b)         HEINRICH (-2 Jan before 1103)Graf von Tübingen.  Pope Urban II granted protection to Kloster Blaubeuren, founded by "Adelheidis comitisse...comitum Hainrici et Hugonis", by charter dated 25 Jan 1099[787]The Necrologii Blauburani records the death "IV Non Ian" of "Heinricus com de Thubingen"[788]m [as her first husband,] ADELHEID von Enzberg, daughter of ZEIZOLF von Enzberg Graf im Kraichgau & his wife --- (-11 Mar 1122, bur Kloster Sinsheim).  The Annales Spirenses name "Adilheidis comitissa filius Ceizolfus comes" as wife of "Heinricum palatinum in Tuwingen", specifying that she was childless[789].  The Annales Spirenses record that "Adilheydis comitissa" travelled to Rome after the death of her uncle Bishop Johann to request his absolution from Pope Pascal II for having supported Emperor Heinrich "in scismate", which was granted on payment of a fine[790]Pope Urban II granted protection to Kloster Blaubeuren, founded by "Adelheidis comitisse...comitum Hainrici et Hugonis", by charter dated 25 Jan 1099[791]The Necrologii Blauburani records the donation "IV Id Nov" of "Adelheit com cum viro suo Heinrico comite de Tuwingen"[792]"Adelheidis vidua Heinrici comitis de Touingen" donated property "in Sindelingun et dimidiam ecclesiam in Niferon iuxta Enze fluvium" to Kloster Reichenbach, undated[793].  The Chronicle of Sinsheim records the death in 1122 of "comitissa Adelheidis…benefactrix huius ecclesie" and her burial in the church between "Frideradam amitam patris sui et Adelam, Mechtildem et alias consanguineas suas"[794]

c)         ANSELM (-25 Dec ----).  1078.  The Necrologii Blauburani records the death "VIII Kal Ian" of "Anshelmus com"[795]

 

 

1.         HUGO [II] von Tübingen, son of --- (-[1120])Graf von Tübingen.  [m [firstly/secondly] --- von Arnstein, daughter of LUDWIG [I] Graf von Arnstein/Lahn & his wife ---.  The Vita Lodewici comitis de Arnstein records that "in castro Arnstein…comes…Lodewicus" had seven sisters, of whom the third married "Palatini comitis de Thuyngin"[796].  The identity of the husband of Hemma von Arnstein is not established beyond doubt.  If he was Graf Hugo [II], the sources quoted below indicate that she would have been a second wife.]  m [firstly/secondly] BERTHA, daughter of ---.  The Historia Monasterii Marchtelanensis names "comitissa de Clementia" {Kellmünz an der Iller} as "ava" of "Hugonis palatini comitis de Tuwingen"[797].  "Hugo…comes palatinus de Tuingen" issued a charter dated 29 May 1173 relating to his earlier donation of the church of Bierlingen, inherited from "ava nostra Bertha bonæ memoriæ comitissa de Clementia", to Kloster Marchtal[798].  These documents do not specify whether they refer to Pfalzgraf Hugo´s paternal or maternal grandmother.  However, the name of his maternal grandmother, mother of Hemma von Zollern, appears to be well-established.  It is therefore probable that Bertha was his paternal grandmother, wife of Graf Hugo [II].  Graf Hugo [II] & [his wife Bertha] had one child: 

a)         HUGO [III] (-1152 before 19 Aug)Graf von Tübingen"Marchio Hermannus de Badun, Comes de Lewenstein Adalbertus, Comes Hugo de Duvingun et æquinomius Filius eiusdem…" witnessed the charter dated 1139 under which Konrad II King of Germany issued a charter for “Wormatiensis...Folmarus...ecclesiæ filius[799]"…Comes Hugo de Duingen…" witnessed the charter dated 14 Oct 1139 under which Konrad III King of Germany granted protection to the church of Denkendorf[800].  The History of Salem Monastery lists those present at a court of "duce Friderico", including "Hugone comite palatino de Tuwingen", undated but dateable to [1152][801]Pfalzgraf.  “H. palatinus de Tvingen” witnessed the charter dated to [1149/52] which records the foundation of Kloster Herrenalb[802]m HEMMA von Zollern, daughter of FRIEDRICH [I] Graf von Zollern & his wife Udalhild [von Urach] (-20 Feb ----).  A 13th century genealogy refers to the two daughters of "Burchardus comes de Zolre" as "matrem palentini de Tuwig et alteram [uxorem] Werenherus comes"[803].  The Codex Hirsaugiensis records that “Gemma comitissa de Tuwingen cum filiis suis Heinrico et Hugone” donated property “ad Eckenwiler” to Kloster Hirsau, for the soul of “marito suo Hugone”, undated[804]The necrology of Zwiefalten records the death "X Kal Mar" of "Hemma com"[805]Graf Hugo [III] & his wife had [four] children: 

i)          FRIEDRICH (-25 Oct [1162/63]).  Pfalzgraf von Tübingen.  “Fridericus palatinus comes de Tuwinge” witnessed the charter dated 19 Aug 1152 under which Friedrich I King of Germany confirmed an agreement between Simon Graf von Saarbrücken and Kloster Schwarzach[806].  “Fridericus palatinus de Tuingen, frater eius comes Hugo” witnessed the charter dated 1154 issued by Friedrich I King of Germany for Kloster Kreuzlingen[807].  “Fridericus palatinus de Tubingen, Hugo comes frater eius” witnessed the charter dated 24 Nov 1162 issued by Friedrich I King of Germany for Kloster Kreuzlingen[808].  The fact that his brother Hugo was named as Pfalzgraf in a charter dated only three days later (see below) suggests that this document may have been finalised after Friedrich’s death.  The Necrologii Blauburani records the death "VIII Kal Nov" of "Fridericus palatinus Thubigensis"[809]

ii)         HUGO [IV] (-18 Dec 1182)"Marchio Hermannus de Badun, Comes de Lewenstein Adalbertus, Comes Hugo de Duvingun et æquinomius Filius eiusdem…" witnessed the charter dated 1139 under which Konrad II King of Germany issued a charter for “Wormatiensis...Folmarus...ecclesiæ filius[810]Pfalzgraf von Tübingen

-         see below

iii)        HEINRICH (-killed in battle Italy 7 Apr 1167).  A 13th century genealogy names (in order) "Hugonem palatinum et Heinricum de Ruke et Itam" as children of "comiti de Tuwig" & his wife "[filiam Burchardi comitis de Zolre]"[811].  The Codex Hirsaugiensis records that “Gemma comitissa de Tuwingen cum filiis suis Heinrico et Hugone” donated property “ad Eckenwiler” to Kloster Hirsau, for the soul of “marito suo Hugone”, undated[812]A charter dated [Sep 1164] records that, during the war between "Welfonem ducem" and "Hugonem comitem", Kloster Hirsau was invaded by "Heinricus prefati comitis germanus", the abbot then requesting protection from the bishop of Konstanz[813]The necrology of Zwiefalten records the death "VII Id Apr" of "Heinricus com de Duwingin"[814].  

iv)       [ITA .  A 13th century genealogy names (in order) "Hugonem palatinum et Heinricum de Ruke et Itam" as children of "comiti de Tuwig" & his wife "[filiam Burchardi comitis de Zolre]", specifying that Ita married "comiti Eberhardo de Nelenburch"[815].  It does not appear that this can be correct.  According to Europäische Stammtafeln[816], Eberhard I "der Selige" Graf von Nellenburg died [1076/79] and his wife Ita (whose origin is not given) after 1105.  Even if the husband of Hemma von Zollern was Hugo [II] instead of Hugo [III], this would still be chronologically inconsistent with Ita's alleged maternal Zollern grandparents dying in the 1130s.  It is of course possible that the 13th century genealogy confused two generations and that Ita was in fact the sister of Hugo [II] Graf von Tübingen not his daughter or granddaughter.] 

 

 

HUGO [IV] von Tübingen, son of HUGO [III] Graf von Tübingen, Pfalzgraf & his wife Hemma von Zollern (-18 Dec 1182)"Marchio Hermannus de Badun, Comes de Lewenstein Adalbertus, Comes Hugo de Duvingun et æquinomius Filius eiusdem…" witnessed the charter dated 1139 under which Konrad II King of Germany issued a charter for “Wormatiensis...Folmarus...ecclesiæ filius[817]The Codex Hirsaugiensis records that “Gemma comitissa de Tuwingen cum filiis suis Heinrico et Hugone” donated property “ad Eckenwiler” to Kloster Hirsau, for the soul of “marito suo Hugone”, undated[818]Graf von Tübingen: “Hugo comes de Thuingen” witnessed a charter of Friedrich I King of Germany for Kloster Erstein dated 12 Jul 1153[819].  “Fridericus palatinus de Tuingen, frater eius comes Hugo” witnessed the charter dated 1154 issued by Friedrich I King of Germany for Kloster Kreuzlingen[820].  “Fridericus palatinus de Tubingen, Hugo comes frater eius” witnessed the charter dated 24 Nov 1162 issued by Friedrich I King of Germany for Kloster Kreuzlingen[821]Pfalzgraf von Tübingen.  “Hugo palatinus comes de Tuingen” witnessed the charter dated 27 Nov 1162 under which Friedrich I King of Germany confirmed an exchange of property involving Kloster Pforta[822].  "Hugo palatinus comes de Tuwingen cum…coniuge mea Elyzabeth et filiis nostris" founded Kloster Marchthal by charter dated 1 May 1171[823].  "Hugo…comes palatinus de Tuingen" issued a charter dated 29 May 1173 relating to his earlier donation of the church of Bierlingen, inherited from "ava nostra Bertha bonæ memoriæ comitissa de Clementia", to Kloster Marchtal[824].  "Hugo…comes palatinus de Tuwingen" donated property to Kloster Marchthal for the entry of "Rudolfus filius noster" by charter dated 29 Jul 1180[825].  "Comitis Ottonis de Hohemberch…cum duobus filiis quorum senior Eberhardus, iunior Otto" confirmed an exchange of property between Kloster Roth and their ministerialis "milite de Lupheim…Bertoldo" by charter dated 12 May 1181, witnessed by "…palatinus comes Hugo de Thuwingen et filius eius comes Rudolfus…"[826]The necrology of Augiæ Maioris records the death "XV Kal Jan" of "Hugo com"[827]

i)          [KONRAD [I] (-before 1253).  His parentage has not been confirmed.  The dispensation for the second marriage of his supposed widow suggests that he may have been the son of Hugo [V]: no record has been found of Wilhelm [I], brother of Hugo [V], and his descendants having borne the title Pfalgraf, and there appears to be no suitable candidate for “C” among the descendants of Pfalgraf Rudolf [II].  It appears therefore that Konrad succeeded Hugo [V] as Pfalzgraf and could therefore have been his son.  He is named in the 26 Feb 1283 charter of his daughter quoted below.  Pfalzgraf von Tübingenm as her first husband, MECHTILD von Hohenlohe, daughter of KONRAD von Hohenlohe Herr von Brauneck & his wife --- (-1293).  She married secondly (Papal dispensation 10 Dec 1253) Ruprecht von DürnPope Innocent IV issued a dispensation for the marriage of “M. relicta quondam C. comitis palatini de Tuingen” and “R. domino de Durne”, despite their 4o consanguinity, dated 10 Dec 1253[852]Rupertus de Durne communicata manu uxoris mee Mehtildis” donated “duas partes decime in Ruchesheim” to Seligenthal by charter dated 28 Aug 1277, sealed by “Ulrici fratris mei et Bopponis fratruelis mei[853]She is named in the 26 Feb 1283 charter of her daughter quoted below.  Pfalzgraf Konrad [I] & his wife had one child:

c)         [UTA (-after 18 Apr 1301).  The primary source which confirms the parentage and marriage of the wife of Hermann von Geroldseck has not been identified.  The name “von Tübingen”, attributed in primary sources to her son and grandsons, does suggest her relationship with the Tübingen family and this is confirmed by the 18 Apr 1301 charter quoted below.  According to Europäische Stammtafeln[938], she was Uta, daughter of Rudolf [III] Pfalzgraf von Tübingen & his [second] wife Adelheid von Eberstein.  The primary source which confirms that this information is correct has not been identified.  “Johans von Gerolzecke” and “Georgen dem grauen von Valdenzen und hern zu Gerolzecke, Walramen und Eberharden sinen brudern mynen vettern, Uten myner mumen von Tüwingen myns vettern Hermans seligen wirtynne und Walther yrem son myme vettern” agreed to divide the Geroldseck properties by charter dated 18 Apr 1301[939]m HERMANN von Geroldseck, son of [HEINRICH von Geroldseck Graf von Veldenz & his wife Agnes von Veldenz] (-[killed in battle Gölheim 2 Jul 1298], before 18 Apr 1301).] 

d)         daughter .  Her parentage and marriage are confirmed by the charter dated Apr 1263 under which [her father] “Rudolfus...comes de Tuwingen“ confirmed the privileges of Kloster Sindelfingen, sealed by “fratris nostri Hugonis palatini de Tuwingen et...filiastri nostri Ulrici de Helfenstain[940]m (before Apr 1263) ULRICH [II] Graf von Helfenstein, son of ULRICH [I] Graf von Helfenstein & his wife --- (-after 17 May 1294). 

e)         HUGO (-10 Aug 1272, bur Sindelfingen).  The Liber Anniversariorum of Sindelfingen records the death "IV Id Aug 1272" of "Hugo com parvus filius Rudolfi comitis de Tuuingen dicti Scherere hunc advocate nostri et in claustro nostro requiescit"[941]

4.         ULRICH (-after 1243). 

5.         MECHTILD von Tübingen .  1233.  The Annales Sindelfingenses record that "regina Rudolfi" was "filia sororis comitis Rudolfi de Tuwingen"[943]m BURCHARD [V] Graf von Hohenberg, son of [BURCHARD IV Graf von Zollern und Hohenberg & his wife ---] (-14 Jul 1253, bur Kirchberg). 

 

 

RUDOLF [I] von Tübingen, son of WILHELM [I] Graf von Tübingen & his wife Willibirg --- (-[1271/72]).  The Historia Monasterii Marchtelanensis names "comitem Willehelmum de Tüwingen, nostri fundatoris successorem" and "Rudolfum et Ulricum filios suos" when recording their donation to the monastery[944].  “Willehelmus comes de Tuwingen” renounced “jus et dominium suum in monasterio Marthellensi” in favour of the bishop of Konstanz, with the consent of “filiorum suorum Rudolfi et Ulrici”, by charter dated 11 Aug 1240[945].  Heinrich Bishop of Konstanz confirmed the sale by "comes Willehelmus de Tuwingen, Rudolfus et Ulricus filii sui" of the Vogtei of Kloster Marchthal to the bishopric by charter dated 11 Jun 1241[946].  Eberhard Bishop of Konstanz sold property to "comiti Ul. de Wirtenberc" by charter dated 1 Jul 1251, which names “nobilibus viris R. de Asperc et Ul. fratri suo et R. de Tuwingen comitibus, marito sororis sue[947]Graf von Tübingen in Böblingen.  "Fratres Rudolfus comes de Twingin et Ulricus comes de Asperc" confirmed the donation of property in Habsthal made by "H. et R. comitum de Twingin patruelium nostrorum" to Kloster Mengen by charter dated [20 May] 1259, with the approval of "R. marchio de Baden"[948].  “Ul. et Rudolfus comites de Tuwingen” sealed a charter dated 1271 under which “Wolpoto de Ror...” reached agreement with Sindelfingen concerning “advocatiam in Mouchingen[949]It is likely that Rudolf died before 1272, the date of a charter under which [his brother] Ulricus comes de Tuwingen” acted alone[950].  This suggestion is also consistent with the likely date of the second marriage of Rudolf’s widow, assuming that she was a member of the Calw family as suggested below and that she was the mother of Liutgard von Berg whose marriage is dated to 1286. 

m ---.  The primary source which confirms the identity of Rudolf’s wife has not been identified.  The following documents suggest that she was closely related to the comital family of Calw.  Schmid quotes a charter dated 25 Nov 1301 issued by [her son] “Gotfridus C. de T.” at the request of “fratrum nostrorum Ulr. H. et Cun. comitum de Schaeklingen[951], and in a charter dated 2 Apr 1302 “Gotfridus comes de Thuwingen“ recorded an alliance with Kloster Bebenhausen, noting among other matters that “nostri fratres --- comites de Schalkelingen” owed payments due to him “apud civitatem Calwe[952].  Schmid records that Gottfried Graf von Tübingen sold “Burg und Stadt Böblingen und seinen Theil an Calw“ to Albrecht King of Germany, Duke of Austria who regranted the property as an imperial fief[953].  Schmid also records that “Ulrich, Heinrich und Konrad Grafen Berg genannt von Schelklingen...mit ihrem Vater Ulrich” sold “daz halb Tail an der Burg und Stadt Calw” to Eberhard Graf von Württemberg by charter dated 1308[954].  The Tübingen family must also have sold their share in Calw to Württemberg at a later date as, in a charter dated 30 Dec 1345, “Grave Wilhalme von Tüwingen“ recorded that “Eberhart und Ulrich Gr. von W. gebrüder unser...Oheime” owed money for “der burg und stat zu Calwe[955].  The most likely explanation for all these references is that Rudolf [I] married, as her first husband, --- von Calw, who married secondly Ulrich [III] Graf von Berg.  If that is correct, their wife was presumably the daughter of Gottfried [II] Graf von Calw or possibly the granddaughter of Adalbert [VI] Graf von Calw (see below).
