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.

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]
