INTRODUCTION

The disparate development of Saxony as a territory, contrasting with the more centralised evolution of the other ancient German provinces in particular Bavaria, is discussed in the Introduction to the document SAXONY.  Early sources reveal the names of numerous counts in Saxony between the 9th and 11th centuries, details of whom are set out in the document GERMANY, EARLY NOBILITY in which the sparse amount of available information on the family relationships of the early nobility is striking.  This means that, not only is reliable family reconstruction virtually impossible, but also the way in which titles and territories were transmitted between generations is unclear.  It is reasonable to suppose that, just as in later centuries, the nobility was a close-knit community and that their successors in the 11th century onwards were descendants of their 9th and 10th century counterparts.  However, no example has so far been found of a proven family connection between these early individuals and later noble families in Saxony.  A tantalising glimpse into the possibilities is provided by what could be termed "parallel" families which can be partially reconstructed from relationships between ecclesiastical dignitaries which are referred to in primary sources.  As an example, the Annalista Saxo records the family connections of the first four bishops of Hildesheim although it names no lay individuals in their families apart from the parents of the first bishop[1].  It is unimaginable that such church families were not closely related to their noble lay counterparts, but proving such family relationships is impossible because of the absence of sufficiently precise contemporary documentation. 

The current document sets out the families of later Saxon nobility, mainly dating from the 10th century or later, from which time the available records permit more reliable reconstruction of family relationships.  The process of noble enfeoffment in Saxony evolved over time.  Several distinct phases in this evolution can be identified as follows: 

This brief analysis reveals a continuous process of enfeoffment and reconsolidation by the dukes of Saxony during the 11th and 12th centuries.  New counties were created to reward service or increase administrative control.  Old counties were reabsorbed into the ducal land-holdings by inheritance or aggression.  In addition, particular local landowners combined skill in acquiring new territories with the good fortune of producing sufficient male heirs, ensuring that their families survived well into modern times.  The best examples are the extensive families of the counts (later princes) of ANHALT, dukes of BRUNSWICK, counts of HOLSTEIN and counts of OLDENBURG, all of whom started from small beginnings.  Details of each of these families are set out in their own respective documents. 

 

 

Chapter 1.    GRAFEN von ALSLEBEN

Jackman suggests that Gero Graf von Alsleben was the son of Siegfried (died [959]), son of Markgraf Gero [I] [Meissen][6] (see MEISSEN).  Although this is not impossible, the chronology would be tight considering the date of Siegfried's marriage ([952]), Gero's death (979), and that Gero's daughter was married in [994].  In addition, it seems surprising that the existence of surviving infant children would not have been mentioned in the sources which relate Siegfried's death, his father's subsequent transfer of all his property to the church and foundation of Kloster Gernrode in his memory[7], and the installation of Siegfried's widow as abbess. 

Brother and sister, parents not known: 

1.     GERO (-executed 11 Aug 979).  Graf von Alsleben.  Thietmar records that Count Gero was captured at Sömmering, killed Waldo in battle, and was executed on 11 Aug[8].  The necrology of Lüneburg records the death "11 Aug" of "Gero com"[9]m ADELA, daughter of ---.  "Otto…imperator augustus" granted privileges to Kloster Alsleben founded by "comes Gero…cum consensus…coniugis suæ Adala" by charter dated 20 May 979[10].  Thietmar names Adela wife of Gero when recording that she established a monastery at Alsleben in memory of her brother, jointly with her sister-in-law Tetta[11].  Graf Gero & his wife had one child: 

a)     ADELA von Alsleben (-1 May ----).  The wife of "Sigefrido filio Heinrici comitis de Stathen" is named "Athela" in the Annalista Saxo, which also names their son and two daughters.  She is named "Adhelam filiam Geronis comitis de Alesleve" in a later passage[12]m ([994]) SIEGFRIED [II] Graf von Stade, son of HEINRICH "der Kahle" Graf im Heiangau & his first wife Judith von der Wetterau [Konradiner] ([965]-6 Jan or 1 May 1037).

A.      GRAFEN von ARNSBERG (WERLE)

KONRAD von Werl, son of BERNHARD Graf von Werl[-Arnsberg] & his wife --- (-killed in battle Friesland 10 Jul 1092).  Graf von Werl[-Arnsberg].  The primary source which confirms his parentage has not yet been identified.  Vogt of Paderborn Cathedral 1066.  He was killed fighting the Frisians. 

m MATHILDE von Northeim, daughter of OTTO I Graf von Northeim Duke of Bavaria & his wife Richenza [Ezzonen].  The Annalista Saxo names "Heinricum Crassum comitem…Sifridum de Boumeneburh et Cononem comitem de Bichlinge et tres filias, terciam vero duxit Conradus comes de Arnesberge" as children of Otto von Northeim & his wife[26].  The Annales Stadenses also refers to the four daughters of Otto, specifying that "secunda mater fuit Frederici comitis de Arnesberch" but does not name her[27].  The primary source which confirms her name has not yet been identified. 

Graf Konrad & his wife had three children: 

1.      HERMANN von Werl (-killed in battle 19 Jul 1092).  The primary source which confirms his parentage has not yet been identified.

a)      IDA [Jutta] von Arnsberg .  The Vita Godefridi comitis Capenbergensis refers to "Friderici comitis filiam" as the wife of Gottfried Graf von Cappenburg[31].  The Annales Stadenses specifies that "unam filiam [Frederici comitis de Arnesberch]", without naming her, was wife of "Godefridus de Cuc, pater comitem Heinrici et Frederici de Arnesburch" while "secundam filiam [Frederici comitis de Arnesberch]", without naming her either, was wife of "Otto de Cappenburch, cuius filia Eilica uxor Eilmari"[32]Europäische Stammtafeln[33] conflates these two possible daughters into one, married twice.  No source has been identified which confirms that this is correct, although the death of Gottfried Graf von Cappenberg shortly before the marriage to Gottfried van Kuyc suggests that it is a possibility.  This is the solution which is shown here.  The Annales Stadenses contain many inaccuracies and it is preferable not to rely exclusively on this source in the absence of independent corroboration.  This unreliability is illustrated by the reference to "Otto de Capenburch", which must be an error for Gottfried, and by the suggestion that the couple were parents of Eilika, later Gräfin von Oldenburg.  The latter point contradicts the Vita Godefridi comitis Cappenbergensis which names Heinrich Graf von Rietberg (see below) as Eilika's father, which is a more acceptable possibility from a chronological point of view.  Heiress of Arnsberg.  m [firstly] GOTTFRIED [II] Graf von Cappenberg, son of GOTTFRIED [I] Graf von Cappenberg & his wife Beatrix von Hildrizhausen (-27 Jan 1127).  [m secondly (1129) GOTTFRIED von Malsen gt van Kuyc, son of HEINRICH Heer van Kuyc & his wife Alveradis [von Hochstaden] (-1168 or after).  Graf von Arnsberg [1130].]

a)      EILIKA von Rietberg (-bur Jadelo).  The Vita Godefridi comitis Capenbergensis names "Eileke" as daughter of "Heinricum comitem de Ryetbeke" & his wife Beatrix, specifying that she married "comes Eigelmarus de Aldenburg"[37].  Another passage in the same source names "Beatricem, quæ conversa est in Capenberg et sepulta cum Eilica comitissa de Aldenburch ad sanctæ Mariam Magdalenam, et Gerbergim quam clam abduxit domnus Bernherus de Erperode" as sisters of "comites Godefridus et Otto"[38].  The precise wording of this passage is not inconsistent with Eilika being the uterine half-sister of Beatrix and Gerberga.  m EGILMAR [II] Graf im Lerigau [Oldenburg], son of Graf EGILMAR [I] & his wife Richeza --- (-before 1145). 

 

B.      GRAFEN von ARNSBERG (KUYC)

m (1129) as her second husband, IDA [Jutta] von Arnsberg, widow of GOTTFRIED [II] Graf von Cappenberg, daughter of FRIEDRICH "der Streitbare" Graf von Arnsberg & his wife Adelheid van Limburg.  The Vita Godefridi comitis Capenbergensis refers to "Friderici comitis filiam" as the wife of Gottfried Graf von Cappenburg[41].  The Annales Stadenses specifies that "unam filiam [Frederici comitis de Arnesberch]", without naming her, was wife of "Godefridus de Cuc, pater comitem Heinrici et Frederici de Arnesburch" while "secundam filiam [Frederici comitis de Arnesberch]", without naming her either, was wife of "Otto de Cappenburch, cuius filia Eilica uxor Eilmari"[42]Europäische Stammtafeln[43] conflates these two possible daughters into one, married twice.  No source has been identified which confirms that this is correct, although the death of Gottfried Graf von Cappenberg shortly before the marriage to Gottfried van Kuyc suggests that it is a possibility.  This is the solution which is shown here.  The Annales Stadenses contain many inaccuracies and it is preferable not to rely exclusively on this source in the absence of independent corroboration.  This unreliability is illustrated by the reference to "Otto de Capenburch", which must be an error for Gottfried, and by the suggestion that the couple were parents of Eilika, later Gräfin von Oldenburg.  The latter point contradicts the Vita Godefridi comitis Cappenbergensis which names Heinrich Graf von Rietberg (see below) as Eilika's father, which is a more acceptable possibility from a chronological point of view.  Heiress of Arnsberg.

Chapter 4.    GRAFEN von BALLENSTEDT

The original power base of the Ballenstedt family was in Saxony.  After the extinction in the male line of the Billung Dukes of Saxony in 1106, their territories were broken up.  Otto Graf von Ballenstedt, one of the sons-in-law of the last Billung Duke, inherited extensive territories centred on Aschersleben which became their stronghold and from which the name "Askanian", often applied to the dynasty, derives[50]


[ADALBERT] von Ballenstedt, son of ---.

Chapter 7.    GRAFEN von CALVELAGE

1.      HERMANN von Calvelage, son of --- (-after 1144).  Graf im Westmünsterland.  m [firstly] (after 1070) as her second husband, ETHELINDE von Northeim, divorced wife of WELF [IV] I Duke of Bavaria, daughter of OTTO I Graf von Northeim Duke of Bavaria & his wife Richenza of Swabia [Ezzonen].  The Annalista Saxo names "Heinricum Crassum comitem…Sifridum de Boumeneburh et Cononem comitem de Bichlinge et tres filias, ex quibus unam nomine Ethilindam accept Welpho dux Bawarie et postquam eam repudiavit duxit eam Herimannus comes de Calverla" as children of Otto von Northeim & his wife[102].  The Annales Stadenses refer to the four daughters of Otto, specifying that "tertia fuit uxor Hermanni de Calvela, que genuit Ottonem et Heinricum comites de Ravenesberch" without naming her[103].  Her first husband repudiated her immediately after the disgrace of her father whom Heinrich IV King of Germany deprived of the dukedom of Bavaria[104].  [m secondly ---.  No record has been found of a second marriage of Hermann Graf von Calvelage.  However, it looks highly probable.  The chronology associated with Ethelinde von Northeim being the mother of the children of Graf Hermann is stretched.  Ethelinde must have been born in [1055/58] at the latest, assuming that she was as young as 12 at the time of her first marriage.  The date of her second marriage is not known, but it would presumably not have taken place after she was aged 30/35 at the latest.  This would place the births of any children by her second marriage during the 1080s, and certainly not later than [1095/1100].  If this is correct, the three children shown below would have been in their eighties or nineties when they died in 1170, 1185 and after 1166 respectively.  Assuming that these death dates are accurate, it is more probable that they were born in the period [1100/1120].  This is also more consistent with the likely birth date of Hermann Graf von Ravensberg, son of Hermann's older son Otto [I].]  Graf Hermann & his [second] wife had three children:

a)      OTTO [I] von Calvelage (-1170).  The Annales Stadenses names "Ottonem et Heinricum comites de Ravenesberch" as sons of "Hermanni de Calvela" & his wife[105]Graf von Ravensberg

c)      HEDWIG von Calvelage (-1166 or after).  The primary source which confirms her parentage has not yet been identified.  Heiress of Dale.  The Chronicon Hanoniense names "Balduinum primum et Gerardum secundum" as sons of "Balduinus comes Hanoniensis" & his wife, in a later passage specifying that he received "ex parte matris suo Yolandis…comitatum de Dodewerde et comitatum de Dala"[108]m GERARD de Hainaut, son of BAUDOUIN III Comte de Hainaut & his wife Yolande van Geldern (-1166).

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

Graf Gottfried & his wife had one child: 

1.      HERMANN von Cappenberg (-[1082/91]).  The primary source which confirms his parentage has not yet been identified.  The Vita Godefridi comitis Capenbergensis specifies that Gottfried Graf von Cappenberg "avum habuit Hermannum comitem"[111]Graf von Cappenbergm GERBERGA von Huneburg, daughter of [GOTTFRIED von Huneburg Vogt von Neuweiler].  The Vita Godefridi comitis Capenbergensis names "Hermannum comitem [et] coniuge eius Gerberge de Huneburg"[112].  Graf Hermann & his wife had three children: 

a)      two sons (-murdered [1082/85]).  The primary source which confirms their parentage has not yet been identified. 

b)      GOTTFRIED [I] von Cappenberg (-killed in battle 1106).  His parentage can be reconstructed from the Vita Godefridi comitis Capenbergensis which specifies that the father of Gottfried [II] Graf von Cappenberg was "Godefridus" and that "avum habuit Hermannum comitem"[113]Graf von Cappenberg.  Vogt von Werden.  m as her first husband, BEATRIX von Hildrizhausen, daughter of HEINRICH Graf von Hildrizhausen & his wife Beatrix von Schweinfurt (-[1115/22]).  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"[114].  The Vita Godefridi comitis Capenbergensis names "pater eius Godefridus, mater Beatrix" as parents of Gottfried Graf von Cappenberg[115].  The Vita Godefridi comitis Capenbergensis names "Heinricum comitem de Ryetbeke" as second husband of Beatrix after the death of "Godefrido"[116].  She married secondly Heinrich Graf von Rietberg.  Graf Gottfried [I] & his wife had five children: 

i)       [ADELHEID .  Adelheid is shown in Europäische Stammtafeln[117] as the daughter of Gottfried [I] Graf von Cappenberg and his wife Beatrix von Hildrizhausen.  However, another table[118] shows Adelheid as the daughter of Beatrix by her second husband Heinrich Graf von Rietberg.  The primary source which confirms her parentage and marriage has not yet been identified.  It is not therefore possible at this moment to judge which version is more likely to be correct.  m as his first wife, ADOLF [II] Graf von Berg, son of ADOLF [I] Graf von Berg & his wife Adelheid von Laufen (-12 Oct after 1160).  Vogt von Cappenberg.] 

ii)       GOTTFRIED von Cappenberg (-27 Jan 1127).  The Vita Godefridi comitis Capenbergensis names "pater eius Godefridus, mater Beatrix" as parents of Gottfried Graf von Cappenberg, specifying also "avum habuit Hermannum comitem"[119]Graf von Cappenburgm [as her first husband,] IDA [Jutta] von Arnsberg, daughter of FRIEDRICH Graf von Arnsberg [Werle] & his wife Adelheid van Limburg.  The Vita Godefridi comitis Capenbergensis refers to "Friderici comitis filiam" as the wife of Gottfried Graf von Cappenburg[120].  The Annales Stadenses specifies that "unam filiam [Frederici comitis de Arnesberch]", without naming her, was wife of "Godefridus de Cuc, pater comitem Heinrici et Frederici de Arnesburch" while "secundam filiam [Frederici comitis de Arnesberch]", without naming her either, was wife of "Otto de Cappenburch, cuius filia Eilica uxor Eilmari"[121]Europäische Stammtafeln[122] conflates these two possible daughters into one, married twice.  No source has been identified which confirms that this is correct, although the death of Gottfried Graf von Cappenberg shortly before the marriage to Gottfried van Kuyc suggests that it is a possibility.  This is the solution which is shown here.  The Annales Stadenses contain many inaccuracies and it is preferable not to rely exclusively on this source in the absence of independent corroboration.  This unreliability is illustrated by the reference to "Otto de Capenburch", which must be an error for Gottfried, and by the suggestion that the couple were parents of Eilika, later Gräfin von Oldenburg.  The latter point contradicts the Vita Godefridi comitis Cappenbergensis which names Heinrich Graf von Rietberg (see below) as Eilika's father, which is a more acceptable possibility from a chronological point of view.  Heiress of Arnsberg.  [She married secondly (1129) Gottfried von Malsen gt van Kuyc, who was Graf von Arnsberg from [1130].]

iii)      OTTO von Cappenberg (-26 Nov 1171).  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"[123]

iv)      BEATRIX von Cappenberg (-29 Jul ----, bur Cappenberg, St Maria Magdalena).  The Vita Godefridi comitis Capenbergensis names "Beatricem, quæ conversa est in Capenberg et sepulta cum Eilica comitissa de Aldenburch ad sancatæ Mariam Magdalenam, et Gerbergim quam clam abduxit domnus Bernherus de Erperode" as sisters of "comites Godefridus et Otto"[124].  Nun at Cappenberg.  She founded Ilberstadt.

Chapter 22.  GRAFEN von SEEBURG

CHRISTIAN, son of [GEBHARD I Graf von Querfurt/BURCHARD I Graf von Querfurt] & his wife --- .  "Cristinus comes, frater Gebehardi de Quernvorde" is named father of Graf Wichmann in the Annalista Saxo[423], although according to Europäische Stammtafeln[424] Cristin was the possible son of Gebhard I Graf von Querfurt.  It is possible that he was the uterine brother of Graf Gebhard, especially as his is the only example of the name "Christian" in the Querfurt family.  Graf. 

m ODA von Haldensleben, daughter of BERNHARD von Haldensleben Markgraf der Nordmark & his wife --- Vladimirovna of Kiev. 

Graf Christian & his wife had two children: 

1.     WICHMANN von Seeburg (-[1115]).  "Cristinus comes, frater Gebehardi de Quernvorde" is named as father of Graf Wichmann in the Annalista Saxo[425]Graf von Seeburgm firstly GISELA von Schweinfurt, daughter of OTTO Markgraf von Schweinfurt Duke of Swabia & his wife Irmgard [Aemilia/Immula] di Susa.  The Annalista Saxo names (in order) "Eilica, Iudhita, Beatrix, Gisla, Berta" as the five daughters of Otto von Schweinfurt and his wife Immula, naming Gisela's husband as "Wigmanno comiti de Seburch"[426]Europäische Stammtafeln[427] says that Gisela's first husband was Arnold Graf von Diessen.  The Annalista Saxo makes no mention of such an earlier marriage.  In addition, Gisela, wife of Arnold, was described as "uxor comitis Arnoldi" in the record of her death in the Diessen necrology, which suggests that she predeceased Arnold or at least that Arnold had been her only husband.  In any case, if Gisela, wife of Arnold, had left Bavaria for Saxony to marry a second time it is less likely that her death would have been recorded at Diessen.  m secondly ([1096]) BERTHA von Camburg, daughter of WILHELM Graf von Camburg [Wettin] & his wife Geva Gräfin von Seeburg ([1075]-before [1152/56]).  The primary source which confirms her parentage and marriage has not yet been identified.  Graf Wichmann & his second wife had three children: 

a)     GERO von Seeburg (12 Jul 1097-19 Sep 1133, bur Kloster Kaldenborn).  The Annalista Saxo names "Geronem comitem, patrem Wigmanni Magdaburgensis archiepiscopi, et Hathwigam abbatissam de Geronrothe" as children of Wichmann and Gisela von Schweinfurt[428]Graf von Seeburgm as her first husband, MATHILDE von Brehna, daughter of THIEMO Graf von Brehna [Wettin] & his wife Ida von Northeim (-21 Jan 1155, bur Petersberg bei Halle).  The Gesta Archiepiscoporum Magdeburgensium names "Mechildis, soror Conradi comitis de Misen" as wife of "Gero comes de Seborch"[429].  The Genealogica Wettinensis names "Dedonem comitem et Conradum et filiam nomine Machthildem" as the children of "Thiemo comes" & his wife, naming "Gero comes de Bavaria" as first husband of Mathilde[430].  Assuming that her first marriage is correct, she was the first cousin of her husband's maternal grandfather, which seems surprising.  She married secondly Ludwig [II] von Wippra (-1151).  Graf Gero & his wife had three children: 

i)      KONRAD von Seeburg (-[17 Mar 1172/1182]).  The Genealogica Wettinensis names "Wichmannum archiepiscopum et Conradum" as the children of "Gero comes de Bavaria" & his wife[431]Graf von Seeburgm ---.  The name of Konrad's wife is not known.  Graf Konrad & his wife had one child: 

(a)    KONRAD von Seeburg .  The primary source which confirms his parentage has not yet been identified.  Provost at Seeburg 1191.

iii)     EKKEHART von Seeburg (-20 Jan 1158).  The primary source which confirms his parentage has not yet been identified.  Graf von Gleiss. 

b)     HEDWIG von Seeburg (-after 14 Feb 1152).  The Annalista Saxo names "Geronem comitem…et Hathwigam abbatissam de Geronrothe" as children of Wichmann and Gisela von Schweinfurt[435].  Abbess of Gernrode 1118. 

c)     GEVA von Seeburg (-after 14 Feb 1152, bur Ichtershausen).  The primary source which confirms her parentage and marriage has not yet been identified.  m [as his second wife,] BERENGAR [I] Graf von Lohra, son of DIETRICH Graf von Linderbach & his wife Uta von Thüringen (-[1107/16]). 

2.     WILHELM von Seeburg .  The Annalista Saxo names "Willehelmus comes de Lutisburh" as brother of Graf Wichmann[436].  Graf von Lutisburg.  1067/75. 

 

 

Chapter 23.  GRAFEN von STADE

Stade had developed since the 8th century as a principal centre of trade and communications[437].  The Grafen von Stade created their domain between the lower Elbe and Weser rivers.  They extended their power northwards with the acquisition of Dithmarschen in the mid-11th century[438].  They became Markgrafen of the Nordmark in 1056.  The Annales Stadenses recount a major dispute in the early 12th century, concerning the inheritance of the county of Stade, between the heir of Ida von Elstorp [Brunswick], her grandson Egilmar II Graf von Oldenburg, and the incumbent Grafen von Stade[439].  It is assumed that Graf Egilmar prevailed in the dispute, at least temporarily, although this is not explicitly stated in the narrative, as the Annales record that he granted administration of the county to his representative Friedrich, presumably while the Graf von Stade concentrated his attention on responsibilities to the east in his capacity as Markgraf der Nordmark.  The family of this Friedrich is set out in Part B below.  This transfer of power, if it occurred at all, was presumably short-lived as descendants of Graf Lothar-Udo III are recorded as Grafen von Stade until 1144/45.  No further mention is made of Friedrich, apart from the record of the death of "Fridericus comes Stadensis" in the Annales Stadenses in 1135, presumably the same person.  Some corroboration of a transfer of power in Stade is found in the Annalista Saxo which records that Heinrich Graf von Stade, after his death in 1087, gave "comitatum suum Stadhe" to "Friderico, quem habuit quadraginta annis" while his brother Lothar-Udo succeeded as Markgraf[440].  This is chronologically inconsistent with the involvement of Egilmar II Graf von Oldenburg, who only succeeded his father as Graf in or after 1108.  Other sources which record the history of the family of the Grafen von Stade make no mention of the episode.  After the death of Rudolf II Graf von Stade in 1144, his brother and successor Hartwig transferred his inheritance to the archbishopric of Bremen in return for a regrant of a life interest, presumably to obtain a powerful protector against the aggression of Heinrich "der Löwe" Duke of Saxony.  The move was ineffective, as Duke Heinrich challenged the grant, took possession of the lands and captured both Hartwig and the archbishop, releasing them only after they agreed to recognise his claim.  The absence of references in the sources to any claim by successors of Friedrich at this time also suggest that the rise to power of his family had been ephemeral.  Duke Heinrich enclosed Stade in a ring of fortifications and conferred civic rights on the town in the [1160s].  These were confirmed in 1209 by his son Otto IV King of Germany[441]

A.      GRAFEN von STADE (family of LOTHAR)

LOTHAR [I] von Stade, son of --- (-killed in battle near Ebstorf 2 Feb 880).  Graf von Stade.  The Gesta Francorum lists "Liutharium" as one of the twelve counts who were killed fighting the Danes in 880[442]

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

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

1.             [LOTHAR [II] von Stade (-killed in battle near Lenzen an der Elbe 5 Sep 929).  No proof has been found that Lothar [II] was the son of Lothar [I] but this looks likely.  Thietmar records the death of two of his great grandfathers "both named Liuthar" at the battle of Lenzen 5 Sep[443].]  m SWANEHILD, daughter of --- (-13 Dec ----).  The primary source which confirms her marriage has not yet been identified.   Graf Lothar [II] & his wife had four children: 

a)             HENRICH [I] "der Kahle" von Stade (-11 May 976, bur Kloster Heeringen).  The paternity of Heinrich is determined from Thietmar recording the death of two of his great grandfathers "both named Liuthar" at the battle of Lenzen 5 Sep[444]Graf von Stade.  He constructed Burg Harsefeld in 964. (Below)

HENRICH [I] "der Kahle" von Stade, son of LOTHAR [II] Graf on Stade & his wife Swanehild --- (-11 May 976, bur Kloster Heeringen).  The paternity of Heinrich is determined from Thietmar recording the death of two of his great grandfathers "both named Liuthar" at the battle of Lenzen 5 Sep[446].  The Annalista Saxo refers to "Heinricus Calvus comes de Stathen" as "consanguineus" of Emperor Otto I[447], but the precise relationship between the two has not been identified.  Graf von Stade.  Graf im Heilangau 959: "Otto…rex" granted property "in pago…Helinge et Moside in locis…Buochstadon et Rinchurst in comitatu et legatione Heinrici comitis" to Magdeburg St Moritz by charter dated 2 Jul 959[448].  He constructed the castle of Harsefeld [Herseveld][449] in 964.  Thietmar names his "grandfather Heinrich" when recording that he tried to capture Duke Hermann Billung at Magdeburg allegedly in response the duke's "arrogance" in certain ceremonial matters[450]

m firstly ([946]) JUDITH, daughter of GEBHARD Graf im Ufgau [Konradiner] & his wife [Adela] de Vermandois (-16 Oct [973]).  "Iuditham sororem Udonis ducis qui postmodum in Calabria sub Ottone Rufo cum multis occubuit" is named in Annalista Saxo, which specifies that she had three sons "Heinricum, Udonem et Sigefridum" and three daughters (unnamed), constructed the castle "qui Herseveld dicitur" and was buried with her husband (unnamed) at Heslinge[451].  Her husband is named "Heinricus Calvus comes de Stathen" in a later passage[452].  Thietmar records that his grandmother Judith died 26 Oct and "rests in a church which her daughter had constructed"[453].  The necrology of Lüneburg records the death "16 Oct" of "Juthita com"[454]

m secondly HILDEGARD [von Reinhausen, daughter of ELLI [I] Graf von Reinhausen & his wife ---] (-11 Jun ----).  The Annales Stadenses name "Hildigardam" as wife of "Heinricus calvus" and mother of "Bonus Heinricus"[455].  The primary source which confirms her parentage has not yet been identified. 

Graf Heinrich [I] & his first wife had seven children: 

1.    HEINRICH [II] "der Gute" von Stade ([946]-2 Oct 1016, bur Harsefeld).  "Heinricum, Udonem et Sigefridum" are named as the three sons of Judith in the Annalista Saxo, Siegfried being named "filio Heinrici comitis de Stathen" in a later passage[456].  Thietmar also names his three maternal uncles "Heinrich, Udo and Siegfried", specifying that Heinrich and Siegfried were captured by pirates together with Count Adalgar when their brother Udo was killed [23 Jun 994][457]Graf von Stade.  The Annalista Saxo records that "Henricus comes, filius Heinrici de Stathe" destroyed the castle of Hersefeld and founded a monastery on the site[458].  The Annales Stadenses name "Heinricus canonicus in Hildensem" as only son of "Heinricus Calvus [et] uxorem Hildegardam" (although it appears chronologically impossible for Heinrich [II] to have been the son of Heinrich [I] by his second wife), specifying that he left the church, was known as "Bonus Heinricus" and had two sons "Sifridum comitem qui Stade ædificavit" and a brother who was captured by pirates, the remaining parts of the passage contradicting the genealogy of the family as set out in the Annalista Saxo[459].  The death of "Heinricus comes, filius Heinrici de Stathe" is recorded in the Annalista Saxo "VI Non Oct 1016"[460].  The necrology of Lüneburg records the death "2 Oct" of "Heinricus com"[461]m ([970]) MECHTILD, daughter of --- (-19 Oct ----, bur Harsefeld).  "Mactilidis" is named wife of "Heinricus comes, filius Heinrici de Stathe" in the Annalista Saxo[462].  Graf Heinrich [II] & his wife had [two] children: 

a)    [SIEGFRIED] [III] von Stade ([970]-26 Oct 994).  The Annales Stadenses name "Sifridum comitem qui Stade ædificavit" as one of the two sons of "Bonus Heinricus"[463].  However, as noted above, the remaining parts of this passage contradict the genealogy of the family set out in the Annalista Saxo.  It is unclear therefore whether this Siegfried existed as a separate person.  Some corroboration is found in Adam of Bremen who names "marchio Sigafridus, comes Thiadricus" among the Saxons captured by Danes at "apud Stadium", although as noted below it is more likely that this refers to Heinrich [II] "der Gute" and his brother Siegfried.  Adam specifies that "marchio Sigafridus" was the only captive who was able to escape to seek help, returning with "dux Benno" with whom he was victorious[464].  The passage is undated but adjacent paragraphs suggest that it relates to an incident in the late 980s/early 990s.  Thietmar records that, after the payment of the ransom for the release of Heinrich, the latter was "replaced by his only son" (unnamed), and in a later passage that, after the escape of Siegfried, his captors "cut off the noses, ears and hands of the priest my cousin" and the other captives before throwing them into the water[465].  The necrology of Lüneburg records the death "26 Oct" of "Sigifrith com"[466].] 

b)    [son .  The Annales Stadenses name "Sifridum comitem qui Stade ædificavit" as one of the two sons of "Bonus Heinricus"[467], although as noted above it is not certain that this is correct.  The existence of the second unnamed son is therefore not certain and is not corroborated in other sources.] 

2.    LOTHAR-UDO [I] von Stade ([950]-killed in battle near Stade 23 Jun 994).  "Heinricum, Udonem et Sigefridum" are named as the three sons of Judith in the Annalista Saxo, Siegfried being named "filio Heinrici comitis de Stathen" in a later passage[468].  Thietmar also names his three maternal uncles "Heinrich, Udo and Siegfried", specifying that Udo was killed in battle "with the pirates"[469]Graf von Stade.  The necrology of Lüneburg records the death "23 Jun" of "Udo com"[470]m --- im Liesgau, daughter of SIEGBERT Graf im Liesgau & his wife ---.  The primary source which confirms her parentage and marriage has not yet been identified.  Graf Lothar-Udo [I] & his wife had two children: 

a)    HEINRICH [III] von Stade .  The Annalista Saxo names him brother of Udo, when recording that they (among others) were the murderers of Ekkehard I Markgraf von Meissen in 1002, but does not give their parentage[471].  Graf im Liesgau 997.  Canon at Hildesheim Cathedral after 1002. 

b)    UDO von Stade (before 986-after 1040).  The Annalista Saxo names him brother of Heinrich, when recording that they (among others) were the murderers of Ekkehard I Markgraf von Meissen in 1002, but does not give their parentage[472].  Graf im Liesgau 1013/1033.  Graf im Rittegau 1020.  m BERTRADA, daughter of ---.  She is named as wife of Udo in the Annalista Saxo, which specifies that she was "de Suevia" but does not give her parentage[473].  Graf Udo & his wife had one child:

-         GRAFEN von KATLENBURG

3.    GERBERG von Stade ([950]-[1000]).  The primary source which confirms her parentage and marriage has not yet been identified.  According to Europäische Stammtafeln[475], she married secondly Bruno [VI] Graf von Braunschweig.  Presumably this is incorrect, as the wife of Bruno von Braunschweig who died in the early years of the 11th century is recorded in other sources as Gisela of Swabia, who married as her third husband Konrad II King of Germany.  The marriage is also inconsistent with the dates accorded to the first husband of Gerberg.  m ([975]) DIETRICH [I] von Querfurt, son of BRUNO Graf von Arneburg & his wife Frederuna ---. 

4.    KUNIGUNDE von Stade ([956]-13 Jul 997, bur Germersleben).  The Annalista Saxo records the death in "Germersleve" on "III Id Iul 998" of "Cunigund comitissa uxor Sigefridi de Waldbike", specifies that she was sister of "Heinrici, Sigefridi et Udonis" and names her five sons (in order) "Thietmarum, Sigefridum, Brunonem, Heinricum, Fridericum"[476]m (end 972) SIEGFRIED [I] "der Ältere" Graf von Walbeck, son of LOTHAR I Graf von Walbeck [Nordmark] & his wife Mathilde von Arneburg (-15/16 Mar 991).

6.    EMNILDE von Stade .  Thietmar records that his "maternal aunt Emnilde" educated him at Quedlinburg (where she was presumably a nun), noting that she "had long suffered from paralysis"[478]

7.    SIEGFRIED [II] von Stade ([965]-6 Jan or 1 May 1037).  "Heinricum, Udonem et Sigefridum" are named as the three sons of Judith in the Annalista Saxo, Siegfried being named "filio Heinrici comitis de Stathen" in a later passage[479]Graf von Stade. (Below)

Graf Heinrich [I] & his second wife had one child: 

8.    HILDEGARDE von Stade ([974/77]-3 Oct 1011, bur Lüneburg St Michaelis).  The primary source which confirms Hildegarde's parentage and her marriage has not so far been identified.  The necrology of Lüneburg records the death "3 Oct" of "Hildegarth ducissa"[480]m ([990]) BERNARD I Herzog in Sachsen, son of HERMANN Billung dux in Saxony & his [first/second] wife [Oda ---/Hildesuit---] (-Corvey 9 Feb 1011, bur Lüneburg St Michaelis (-Corvey 9 Feb 1011, bur Lüneburg St Michaelis).

m (before 23 Jun 994) ADELA von Alsleben, daughter of GERO Graf von Alsleben & his wife Adela --- (-1 May ----).  The wife of "Sigefrido filio Heinrici comitis de Stathen" is named "Athela" in the Annalista Saxo, which also names their son and two daughters.  She is named "Adhelam filiam Geronis comitis de Alesleve" in a later passage[486].  Thietmar records that Siegfried was welcomed back by "his wife Adela" after his escape from captivity[487]

Graf Siegfried [II] & his wife had three children: 

1.    LOTHAR-UDO [II] von Stade (after 23 Jun 994-7 Nov 1057).  He is named "Liutgerum comitem", and his parentage specified, in the Annalista Saxo[488].  His birth date is estimated from Thietmar recording that his father Siegfried had no sons for use as hostages at the time of his capture by pirates in Jun 994[489].  He succeeded his father in 1037 as Graf von Stade.  He succeeded in 1056 as LOTHAR-UDO I Markgraf der Nordmark.  The necrology of Lüneburg records the death "6 Nov" of "Udo com"[490]m ([1025]) ADELHEID [von Rheinfelden], daughter of --- (-7 Dec after 1057, bur Alsleben).  The Annales Stadenses name "Adelheithim amitam Rodolfi [von Rheinfelden]" as wife of "comitem Luderum"[491], although the other parts of these Annals appear unreliable and this statement should be treated with caution until corroborated by another source.  Graf Lothar-Udo [II] & his wife had one child: 

a)    LOTHAR-UDO [III] von Stade ([1020/30]-4 May 1082).  The Annales Stadenses name "Udonem primum" as son of "comitem Luderum" & his wife Adelheid[492]Graf von Stade.  He succeeded his father in 1057 as LOTHAR-UDO II Markgraf der Nordmark.  (Below)

4.    SIEGFRIED von Stade (-17 Jun [1110]).  The Annalista Saxo names (in order) "Heinricum, Udonem, Sigifridum, Rodulfum et filiam Adelheidis" as children of Lothar Udo [III] & his wife Oda[545].  The Annales Stadenses specifies that "Sifridum" was "præpostium Magdaburgensem ad Sancti Nicholaum et canonicum in ecclesia maiori"[546].  Provost at Magdeburg. 

5.    ADELHEID von Stade (-8 Oct or 14 Nov 1110, bur Reinhardsbrunn).  The Annalista Saxo names (in order) "Heinricum, Udonem, Sigifridum, Rodulfum et filiam Adelheidis" as children of Lothar Udo [III] & his wife Oda, naming the first husband of Adelheid as "Fridericus palatinus comes de Putelenthorp" and the second husband "comes Lodowicus senior de Thuringia"[547]m firstly FRIEDRICH [II] von Goseck, son of FRIEDRICH [I] von Goseck Pfalzgraf [von Sachsen] & his wife Hedwig --- (-murdered near Scheiplitz 5 Feb 1085, bur Goseck).  m secondly (1087) LUDWIG "der Salier/der Springer" Graf in Thuringia, son of LUDWIG "mit dem Barte" Graf in Thuringia & his wife Caecilie von Sangerhausen (-[6/8] May 1123).

B.      GRAFEN von STADE (family of FRIEDRICH)

1.             --- .  m ---.   

a)    daughter .  The Annales Stadenses record that the "avia et mater" of "Fridericus [comes Stadensis]" sailed from England, were shipwrecked on the coast of the county of Stade and were taken to the court of Oda, wife of Lothar-Udo III Graf von Stade, where the Annales record that "mater nupsit" and had three daughters, also recording their descendants as shown below[549].  The chronology is unclear from the passage but, if the narrative is correct, the events must have occurred after [1065], the estimated date of the marriage of Oda and Graf Lothar-Udo.  The date suggests that the family left England to escape the Normans after the accession of King William I.  The name "Friedrich" is untypical of an Anglo-Saxon family, although it could conceivably be a distortion of a Danish name.  The marriage was presumably her second, as the narrative clearly refers to her as "mater" of Friedrich while only specifying the birth of her three daughters from the marriage in Stade.  As pointed out in the introduction to this chapter, no corroboration has been found of these events in other sources, although the detailed recording in the Annales of the names of the descendants of the three daughters inspires some confidence in the accuracy of the source.  m firstly ---.  m secondly (after [1065]) ---.  child of first marriage: 

i)      FRIEDRICH (before [1065]-13 Apr 1135).  The Annales Stadenses record that Egilmar II Graf von Oldenburg granted administration of the county of Stade to "Friedrich", presumably after prevailing (at least temporarily) in the dispute concerning the inheritance of his maternal grandmother Ida von Elstorp [Brunswick][550].  Some corroboration of a transfer of power in Stade is found in the Annalista Saxo which records that Heinrich Graf von Stade, after his death in 1087, gave "comitatum suum Stadhe" to "Friderico, quem habuit quadraginta annis" while his brother Lothar-Udo succeeded as Markgraf[551], although this is inconsistent with the involvement of Graf Egilmar II who only succeeded his father in or after 1108.  As mentioned above, Friedrich was presumably born from an earlier marriage of his mother before the arrival of the family in Stade.  The Annales Stadenses record the death "1135 Id Apr" of "Fridericus comes Stadensis"[552], although if the age referred to in the Annalista Saxo is correct it would be unlikely that this refers to the same Friedrich.  The absence of further references to the family in the records suggests that Friedrich died without direct heirs. 

children of second marriage, the descendants as shown below are recorded in the Annales Stadenses[553].  No record has yet been found of any of these individuals in any other primary sources so far consulted.

Chapter 24.  GRAFEN von SÜPPLINGENBURG

A family of minor nobility in Saxony whose county was located in the Harzgau, the adjacent north-eastern foreland of the Harz mountains, centred on their ancestral castle of Süpplingenburg near Königslutter.  The choice of Lothar von Süpplingenburg to succeed as duke of Saxony, after the extinction of the male line of the Billung family in 1106, was presumably designed to limit the growing influence of the two more obvious candidates, Heinrich "der Schwarze" of the Welf dynasty and Otto Graf von Ballenstedt of the Askanian dynasty, the two sons-in-law of the last Billung Duke Magnus.  From his maternal grandmother, Duke Lothar inherited the important county of Haldensleben in the north-eastern foreland of the Harz, and from his mother-in-law the Brunswick territories which included the castle of Katlenburg to the east of Northeim[554].   

1.    LIUTGER .  Graf 1013.  Graf im Harzgau 1021.  1031. 

2.    LIUTHER (-after 2 Jan 1049).  According to Europäische Stammtafeln[555], Liuther and Bernhard were possible sons of Graf Liutger.  The proposed relationship between Liuther and Bernhard is presumably based on their being named together in a charter dated 1063 (see below), and the connection with Liutger because both he and Bernhard are recorded as counts in Harzgau, although other examples demonstrate that the common holding of countships in the same area is not inevitably based on family relationship.  "Heinricus…Romanorum imperator augustus" granted property "villam Vpelingon in pago Nortvringon in comitatu Liuthari comitis" to the church of Halberstadt by charter dated 2 Jan 1049[556].  "Heinricus…rex" confirmed privileges to the church of Halberstadt by charter dated 7 Aug 1063, which records the prior grant of two counties to the church "unum Bernhardi sive filii eius Gebehardi comitum, alterum Liutherii comitis" by Emperor Heinrich III[557].  There is no proof that Graf Liuther was related to the Süpplingenburg family.  However, his being named in the 1063 charter with Graf Bernhard suggests that there may have been a family connection.  It is not clear from the text of the 1063 charter whether Graf Liuthar was still alive at that date. 

3.    BERNHARD (-before 1069).  According to Europäische Stammtafeln[558], Liuther and Bernhard were possible sons of Graf Liutger.  The proposed relationship between Liuther and Bernhard is presumably based on their being named together in a charter dated 1063 (see below), and the connection with Liutger because both he and Bernhard are recorded as counts in Harzgau, although other examples demonstrate that the common holding of countships in the same area is not inevitably based on family relationship.  Graf im Harzgau und Derlingau und in Nordthüringen: "Heinricus…Romanorum imperator augustus" donated "talem comitatum qualem Bernhardus comes in pagis Hartegouwe ac Derlingon partimque in Northuringon nec non Belchesheim obtinuit" to the church of Halberstadt by charter dated 17 Jan 1052[559].  "Heinricus…rex" confirmed privileges to the church of Halberstadt by charter dated 7 Aug 1063, which records the prior grant of two counties to the church "unum Bernhardi sive filii eius Gebehardi comitum, alterum Liutherii comitis" by Emperor Heinrich III[560].  "Heinricus…rex" granted "comitatum Bernhardi comitis" to the church of Bremen-Hamburg by charter dated 24 Oct 1063, with the consent of "Ottonis Baiuuariorum ducis, Bertoldi ducis, Ottonis marchionis, Fritherici comitis palatine, Ekkiberti comitis"[561]m IDA von Querfurt, daughter of GEBHARD [I] Graf von Querfurt & his wife ---.  The Annalista Saxo names "Burchardum et Ida" as children of Gebhard, specifying that Ida was mother of Gerhard and grandmother of "Lotharii inperatoris"[562].  Graf Bernhard & his wife had two children: 

a)             GERHARD von Süpplingenburg (-killed in battle Unstrutt near Homburg 9 Jun 1075).  He is named as son of Ida in the Annalista Saxo[563].  Graf im Harzgau 1052. (Below)

b)             THIETMAR von Süpplingenburg (-1093).  The Annalista Saxo names "Thietmarus, patruus scilicet Lotharii inperatoris" when recording his election as Bishop of Halberstadt and his non-consecration[564].  Elected Bishop of Halberstadt 1090.

GERHARD von Süpplingenburg, son of BERNHARD von Süpplingenburg Graf im Harzgau & his wife Ida von Querfurt (-killed in battle Unstrutt near Homburg 9 Jun 1075).  He is named as son of Ida in the Annalista Saxo[565].  Graf im Harzgau 1052.  A supporter of the nobles who opposed Heinrich IV King of Germany, he incited the rebellion of Saxony and was killed in battle fighting the king's forces[566].  The necrology of Lüneburg records the death "9 Jun" of "Geuehardus com"[567], although it is not known whether this entry refers to this Graf Gerhard. 

m as her first husband, HEDWIG von Formbach, daughter of FRIEDRICH Graf von Formbach & his wife Gertrud von Haldensleben.  The Vita Wirntonis names "Fridericus" as father of "Hedwigis, mater Lotharii regis"[568].  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[569].  She married secondly ([1080]) as his first wife, Thierry II Duke of Lorraine.  The primary source which confirms her second marriage has not yet been identified. 

Graf Gerhard & his wife had two children: 

1.    IDA (-3 Mar [1138], bur Michaelstein).  The Notæ Genealogicæ Bavaricæ name "Lotharii regis et Ite comitisse de Purchausen" as children of "Hadewic"[570].  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, the document also naming Sigehard Patriarch of Aquileja, his mother Bilihilt, Graf Sigehard and his brother Friedrich[571].  The necrology of Salzburg St Rudpert records the death "V Non Mar" of "Ita com de Purchhusen"[572].  The necrology of Michaelbeuern records the death "V Non Mar" of "Ita com"[573].  The necrology of Melk records the death "IV Non Mar" of "Ita com de Scala"[574]m SIEGHARD [X] Graf von Tengling, son of FRIEDRICH [I] Graf von Tengling & his wife Mathilde von Vohburg (-beheaded Regensburg 5 Feb 1104). 

2.    LOTHAR von Süpplingenburg ([1/8] Jun 1075-Breitenwang am Loch in Tirol 4 Dec 1137, bur Königslutter).  He is named as son of Gebhard in the Annalista Saxo[575].  The Notæ Genealogicæ Bavaricæ name "Lotharii regis et Ite comitisse de Purchausen" as children of "Hadewic"[576].  He was invested as LOTHAR Duke of Saxony in 1106 by Heinrich V King of Germany after the death of Magnus Billung Duke of Saxony[577].  He was elected LOTHAR III King of Germany in 1125.

Chapter 26.  GRAFEN von WALBECK

LOTHAR [I] von Walbeck, son of --- (-killed in battle near Lenzen an der Elbe 5 Sep 929).  Thietmar records the death of two of his great grandfathers "both named Liuthar" at the battle of Lenzen 5 Sep[584]

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

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

1.    LOTHAR [II] von Walbeck (-986).  Thietmar names his grandfather "Liuthar", recording that he participated in the plot to assassinate Emperor Otto I for which he exiled to Bavaria "to be held in captivity by Count Berthold" where he remained for a year[585]Graf von Walbeckm MATHILDE von Arneburg, daughter of BRUNO Graf von Arneburg [Querfurt] & his wife Frederuna --- (-3 Dec 992).  The primary source which confirms her parentage has not yet been identified.  Thietmar records the death of his paternal grandmother Mathilde on 3 Dec in the same year in which her son Siegfried died[586].  Graf Lothar [II] & his wife had four children: 

a)    LOTHAR [III] von Walbeck (-25 Jan 1003, bur Köln Cathedral).  Thietmar names his paternal uncle Liuthar, recording that he attempted to deprive his mother of all her possessions after the death of his brother Siegfried[587].  Graf im Derlingau und im Nordthüringgau 982.  He succeeded in 982 as LOTHAR I Markgraf der Nordmark.  The Annalista Saxo records that he was installed as Markgraf after "Teoderici ducis et marchionis" was deprived of the dignity following the destruction by the Slavs of the churches "Branneburch et Havelbergan" and their relapse into paganism[588].  Thietmar records the death on 25 Jan, in the first year of the reign of King Heinrich II (1003), of "Markgraf Liuthar" and his burial at Köln[589]m as her first husband, GODILA, daughter of WERNER [Graf von Rothenburg] & his wife --- (-1015).  Thietmar names a "nobly born woman from the West…Godila" as wife of Lothar, naming her father Werner and specifying that her cousin was Wicfrid Bishop of Verdun[590].  Thietmar records that Godila remained unmarried for four years after her husband died then married secondly "her relative Hermann"[591].  She married secondly (1007) Hermann [II] Graf von Werle.  Godila's second husband has been identified as Hermann [II] Graf von Werl[592].  If this is correct she must have been his second wife as Thietmar records that "she was denied any hope of future offspring" as she was excommunicated for the marriage, her husband being "her relative"[593].  Graf Lothar [III] & his wife had [four] children: 

i)      WERNER von Walbeck (-murdered Allerstedt 11 Nov 1014, bur Welbeck Monastery).  Thietmar records the birth of Werner as first son of Lothar and his wife, born when his mother was "in her thirteenth year"[594].  The Annalista Saxo names "marchio Werinharius" as son of Lothar[595].  He succeeded in 1003 as WERNER Markgraf der Nordmark, until 1009.  After accusations brought against him at Merseburg by Graf Dedo [Wettin], Werner was deprived of his titles[596].  Thietmar records Werner abduction of Reinhild "mistress of Beichlingen" in Nov 1014, his capture and planned trial, his death "on the feast of St Martin having patiently endured whatever misfortunes had hitherto come his way", and his burial[597].  The necrology of Lüneburg records the death "11 Nov" of "Wirinher com"[598]m (Jan 1003) LIUTGARD von Meissen, daughter of EKKEHARD I Markgraf von Meissen & his wife Schwanehild [Billung] (-13 Nov [1012], bur Walbeck Monastery).  Thietmar names Liutgard as first born child of Ekkehard and his wife Swanhild[599].  "Liutgardem" is also named in the Annalista Saxo, which records her parentage[600].  Thietmar describes Liutgard as "on the one side…my niece and on the other my cousin's wife" when recording her death[601], although she was rather remotely related to Thietmar to be described as his niece.  Thietmar records the betrothal of Werner & Liutgard daughter of Ekkehard after Werner abducted her from the fortress of Quedlinburg, and in a later passage their eventual marriage in Jan of the first year of the reign of King Heinrich II (1003)[602].  Thietmar records her death on 13 Nov, in a passage dated to 1012, and her burial at Walbeck monastery[603]

ii)    LOTHAR [IV] von Walbeck (-killed in battle 1033).  The primary source which confirms his parentage has not yet been identified.  He succeeded as LOTHAR II Markgraf der Nordmark, Graf von Walbeckm ---.  The name of Lothar's wife is not known.  Graf Lothar [IV] & his wife had one child: 

(a)    SIEGFRIED von Walbeck (-after 1087).  Graf von Derlingau und im Nordthüringgau.  1068/1087.  "Herimannus…rex" donated property "duabus villis…in pago Norththuringau in comitatu Sigefridi comitis" to the church of Halberstadt by charter dated 13 Apr 1083[604]m ---.  The name of Siegfried's wife is not known.  Graf Siegfried & his wife had [one] child:

(1)   [ODA von Walbeck (-1152).  The Annalista Saxo names Oda as daughter of "prenominati Sigefridi de Waldbiki" (who, from the context of the passage, appears to be Siegfried [I] "der Ältere", see below, which must be incorrect), and names her husband Goswin[605].  A further indication that Oda's father must be a different Siegfried is that the chronicler Thietmar, son of Siegfried "der Ältere", does not name Oda as his sister, although he names all his other siblings.  Oda founded Kloster Heinsberg in [1145].  It does not appear chronologically possible for Oda to have been the wife of Goswin [I] Heer van Heinsberg.  It is more likely that she was the wife of his son Gerhard.  m GERHARD [I] Heer van Heinsberg en Valkenburg, son of GOSWIN [I] Heer van Heinsberg & his wife --- (-1 Apr 1128).] 

iii)    BERTHOLD von Walbeck (-1018 or after).  Thietmar names "Berthold, Liuthar's son", when recording that he invaded Burg Monreberg and killed Balderic in 1017, but in a later passage that he surrendered to the emperor voluntarily[606].  1017/18.  m [firstly] IRMGARD von Aspel, daughter of GODIZO Graf von Aspel und Heimbach & his wife --- de Verdun [Wigeriche].  The primary source which confirms Irmgard's origin has not so far been identified.  However, the Vita Meinwerci records a donation (undated, but with other donations dated [1022]) of "comes…Godizo" with the consent of "coniugis suæ Addilæ ac sororis suæ heredis iustissimæ", witnessed by "Liudolfi, Udonis, Hiddonis, Acca comitum"[607], which suggests that any children of Godizo predeceased their father.  [m secondly ---.  No direct reference has been found to this second marriage.  However, if it is correct, as shown above, that the wife of Berthold was the daughter of Godizo Graf von Aspel und Heimbach, the reference in the Vita Meinwerci (see above) indicates that she must have predeased her father.  As the same source records that Godizo's sister was his heiress, Berthold could not have had any surviving children by his supposed marriage to Irmgard.  This indicates that Berthold must have married twice, and that his second wife was the mother of his daughter, who would have been named after his first wife.]  Berthold & his [second] wife had one child: 

(a)    IRMGARD von Aspel (-[5 Feb 1075]).  The primary source which confirms her parentage and marriage has not yet been identified.  m CHADALHOCH Graf im Isengau, son of CHADALHOCH Graf im Isengau & his wife --- (-30 Oct 1050). 

iv)    [DIETRICH .  Thietmar names "my cousin Dietrich", recording that he was a canon at Magdeburg in [1008/09][608].] 

b)     EILIKA [Eiliswintha or Eila] von Walbeck (-19 Aug 1015, bur Schweinfurt Kloster).  The Annalista Saxo records that "Eila" daughter of "Lotharius comes senior de Walbike" married "Bertoldus comes", their son being named Heinrich[609].  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[610].  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[611].  Thietmar records the death of "Countess Eila" on 19 Aug and her burial in the monastery which she had constructed[612]m ([970]) BERTHOLD Markgraf, Graf des Ostlichen Franken [Schweinfurt], son of --- (-15 Jan 980). 

c)     SIEGFRIED [I] "der Ältere" von Walbeck (-Walbeck 15 Mar 992).  Thietmar names his father Siegfried, recording that "then a young man and unmarried" he supported Markgraf Hodo against Miezsko of Poland at the battle of Zehden[613]Graf von Walbeck.  "Otto…imperator augustus" gave judgment in a dispute between Werner Abbot of Fulda and Gozbert Abbot of Hersfeld, concerning ship travel along the Hörsel, by charter dated 30 Dec 979, which names "comites nostros Sigebertum, Sigefridum et Brunonem"[614], Siegfried presumably being Graf Siegfried [I].  Thietmar records his father's death on 15 Mar, in the same year that his mother died, at the fortress of Walbeck[615]m (end 972) KUNIGUNDE von Stade, daughter of HEINRICH "der Kahle" Graf von Stade & his first wife Judith von der Wetterau [Konradiner] ([956]-Burg Germersleben 13 Jul 997, bur Germersleben).  Thietmar records that his father Siegfried "was mourned by his wife Cunegunde", stating that her brother-in-law Liuthar attempted to deprive her of all her possessions after the death of her husband, although all was restored to her with the emperor's help[616].  Her marriage can be dated approximately from Thietmar describing her husband as unmarried at the time of the battle of Zehden[617], which is dated to 24 Jun 972.  The Annalista Saxo records the death in "Germersleve" on "III Id Iul 998" of "Cunigund comitissa uxor Sigefridi de Waldbike", specifies that she was sister of "Heinrici, Sigefridi et Udonis" and names her five sons (in order) "Thietmarum, Sigefridum, Brunonem, Heinricum, Fridericum"[618].  In another passage, the Annalista Saxo records "Iudhithe comitisse filie Heinrici Calvi de Stadhen" as wife of "Sigefridi comitis de Waldbike"[619].  Thietmar records the death of his mother at Burg Germersleben on 13 Jul[620].  Graf Siegfried [I] & his wife had five children: 

i)       HEINRICH von Walbeck (973-killed in battle 1002 or after Sep 1004).  The Annalista Saxo names (in order) "Thietmarum, Sigefridum, Brunonem, Heinricum, Fridericum" as the five sons of "Cunigund comitissa uxor Sigefridi de Waldbike", specifying that Heinrich inherited his father's county suggesting that he was the oldest despite the order in which the brothers are named (which gives the three clerical brothers before the two lay ones)[621].  Thietmar records that "Count Heinrich my brother" was involved in the battle in the "lands of the Milzeni", which from the apparently chronology of the text took place after the installation of Jaromir as Duke of the Bohemians (Sep 1004), and returned the body of "Hemuzo" (whose vassal he was) to the deceased's homeland[622]

ii)     FRIEDRICH von Walbeck (974-after 1012).  The Annalista Saxo names (in order) "Thietmarum, Sigefridum, Brunonem, Heinricum, Fridericum" as the five sons of "Cunigund comitissa uxor Sigefridi de Waldbike", specifying that Friedrich administered Magdeburg as prefect[623]Graf von Walbeck, Burggraf von Magdeburg.  m firstly as her first husband, THIETBURGA, daughter of ---.  The Annalista Saxo names "Thietberga comitissa" wife of "Friderici Magedaburgensis comitis", specifying that she married secondly "quidam nobilis de proceribus Hessorum, genuitque ille Meinfridum, qui predicto fratri suo Conrado, quia filium non habuit, in comitatu successit"[624].  She married secondly ---.  m secondly ---.  Graf Friedrich & his first wife had [two] children: 

(a)    KONRAD von Walbeck .  The Annalista Saxo names "Conradum Magedaburgensem comitem" and gives his parentage[625]Graf von Walbeck, Burggraf von Magdeburg.  m ADELHEID, daughter of ---, from Bavaria.  The Annalista Saxo names Adelheid wife of Konrad, specifying that she was "de Bawaria"[626].  Graf Konrad & his wife had one child: 

(1)    MATHILDE von Walbeck .  The Annalista Saxo names her and gives her parentage, as well as her marriage to "Teodericus comes de Ploceke"[627]m DIETRICH Graf von Plötzkau, son of BERNHARD I von Kakelingen Graf im Harzgau & his wife Irmingard --- (-3 Aug ----, bur Kakelingen). 

(b)    [BRIGIDA .  Thietmar names his niece Brigida "who exercised pastoral care over the monastery of St Lawrence"[628].  There is no proof of her parentage, but Friedrich is the only brother of Thietmar who is recorded as having married and had children.  Another possibility is that she was a descendant of Lothar [III], Thietmar's paternal uncle, assuming that the relationship was more remote than implied by the strict meaning of the term niece. 

Friedrich & his second wife had one child:

(c)    MEINFRIED von Walbeck (-killed in battle 1079).  The Annalista Saxo names "Meinfridum" as son of "Thietberga comitissa" and her second husband "quidam nobilis de proceribus Hessorum", specifying that he succeeded his brother Konrad[629]Graf von Walbeck, Burggraf von Magdeburg. 

iii)     THIETMAR von Walbeck (25 Jul 975-1 Dec1018).  The Annalista Saxo names (in order) "Thietmarum, Sigefridum, Brunonem, Heinricum, Fridericum" as the five sons of "Cunigund comitissa uxor Sigefridi de Waldbike", specifying that Thietmar, Siegfried and Bruno were bishops and in a later passage that Thietmar was Bishop of Merseburg[630].  The historian and chronicler.  Thietmar recalls in his own Chronicon that he was first brought up by his maternal aunt Emnilde at Quedlinburg, transferred to Abbot Rikdag second abbot of St Johann at Magdeburg, and 1 Nov 990 "accepted into the community of St Maurice", in a later passage writing that he was the third son of his parents[631].  Provost of Walbeck 1002.  Bishop of Merseburg 1009. 

iv)    SIEGFRIED von Walbeck (-27 Nov 1032[632]).  The Annalista Saxo names (in order) "Thietmarum, Sigefridum, Brunonem, Heinricum, Fridericum" as the five sons of "Cunigund comitissa uxor Sigefridi de Waldbike", specifying that Thietmar, Siegfried and Bruno were bishops, and in a later passage that Siegfried was Bishop of Münster[633].  Abbot of Berge, near Magdeburg 1009.  Bishop of Münster 1022. 

v)      BRUNO von Walbeck (-21 Aug 1049).  The Annalista Saxo names (in order) "Thietmarum, Sigefridum, Brunonem, Heinricum, Fridericum" as the five sons of "Cunigund comitissa uxor Sigefridi de Waldbike", specifying that Thietmar, Siegfried and Bruno were bishops, and in a later passage that Bruno was Bishop of Verden[634].  Abbot of Nienburg.  Abbot at Magdeburg 1025.  Bishop of Verden 1034. 

Graf Siegfried [I] had one illegitimate child by an unknown mistress: 

vi)      WILLIGIS .  Thietmar names "Willigis who was my brother from my father", recording that he installed him as Provost of Walbeck after his own appointment as bishop in 1009[635]

d)             DIETMAR von Walbeck .  The primary source which confirms his parentage has not yet been identified.  Abbot of Corvey 983-1001.

3.    HERMANN [I] (-[985/86]).  According to Europäische Stammtafeln[639], Hermann [I] was the possible son of Graf Heinrich but the basis for this speculation is not known.  "Otto…rex" confirmed the foundation by "matrone Helmburhe" of Kloster Fischbeck for the soul of "Ricperhti domini sui et Richarddi et Aelfdehe filii sui", including property "in pago Tilithi in comitatu Hirimanni…iterum in pago Merstem in comitatu eiusdem comitis…et in pago Laginga…in comitatu Dodicon et in pago Vuestfala in comitatu Henrici comitis…et in comitatu Hroduuerkes…et in comitatu Vuirinhardi", by charter dated 10 Jan 955[640]Graf von Werlm as her first husband, GERBERGA of Burgundy, daughter of CONRAD I "le Pacifique" King of Burgundy [Welf] & his second wife Mathilde de France [Carolingian] (-7 Jul 1018).  No direct record of this first marriage has so far been identified.  However, "Otto tercius…Romanorum imperator augustus" granted privileges to Kloster Oedingen founded by "matrona Gerberga…in comitatu Herimanni eius filii" to the monks of the Marienkapelle at Aachen by charter dated 18 May 1000[641], and Thietmar names "Count Hermann son of Gerberga" when recording his dispute with Dietrich Bishop of Münster in 1016[642].  These two references relate to Hermann [II] Graf von Werl.  In addition, "Rodulfus et Bernhardus nati in…Werla" are named as brothers of Empress Gisela in the Annalista Saxo, although not specifying that they were her uterine brothers[643].  She founded Kloster Oedingen in 1000.  She married secondly ([986]) Hermann [von Schwaben], who was installed in 997 as Hermann II Duke of Swabia.  "Otto…Romanorum imperator augustus" donated property "in villa Stohchusen in pago Locdorp ac comitatu Herimanni comitis" to Kloster Meschede by charter dated 29 Sep 997 by request of "Gerbirge comitisse"[644].  Graf Hermann [I] & his wife had three children:

Chapter 29.  GRAFEN von WINZENBURG

HERMANN von Windberg, son of MEGINHARD IV Vogt von Niederaltaich [Formbach] & his wife Mathilde von Reinhausen (-Vornbach 1122).  According to the 14th century Genealogia comitum Neuburgensium sive Formbacensium, "Meginhardus frater senioris Tiemonis genuit Oudalricum, Hermannum provincie comitem et Chunradum"[667], although it appears incorrect that their father was brother of "senioris Tiemonis".  Graf von Windberg 1097.  Wegener refers to the donation by "Oudalrich de Windperge" brother of "dominus Hermannus" to Kloster Vornbach, completed after his death by his widow Mathilt and his son Konrad and his brother Hermann[668].  Graf von Windberg 1097.  Graf von Ratelberg 1107.  Graf von Winzenburg 1109.  Markgraf 1112.  Markgraf von Sachsen 1114.  He founded Kloster Reinhausen 1108.  The Annales Reicherspergenses record the death in 1122 of "Hermannus comes provincialis"[669].  The Auctarium Claustroneoburgense records the death in 1122 of "Hermannus comes provincialis de Saxonia"[670]

m firstly --- [von Everstein].  The primary source which confirms her marriage has not yet been identified. 

m secondly HEDWIG, daughter of --- (-Kloster Windberg 1 Dec 1162).  Wegener records that Hadewich, widow of Graf Heriman, donated property to Göttweig with her son Heriman by charter dated [1122], witnessed by Adalbert son of Markgraf Luitpold[671].  The necrology of Windberg records the death "Kal Dec 1162" of "Hadewich coma et fundatrix loci huius"[672].  The necrology of Oberaltaich records the death "Kal Dec" of "Hadewic coma"[673].  It is possible that she was Hedwig of Carniola and Istria, daughter of Poppo II Marchese di Carniola e Istria & his wife Richgard von Sponheim, who married [secondly] ([1123]) as his second wife, Adalbert [II] Graf von Bogen.  The Historia Welforum refers to the two daughters of "Poponem marchionem", specifying that they married "unam Bertholfo comiti de Andehse, aliam Alberto comiti de Bogen"[674].  The De Advocatis Altahensibus names "Hadwigam" as wife of "Aschwinus…comes de Bogen…dicitur Adilpertum comitem", specifying that her husband was "advocatus Altahensis ecclesie"[675].  The primary source which specifies clearly that the wife of Graf Adalbert was the widow of Graf Hermann has not so far been identified, although the [1122] charter referred to above suggests that this might be correct. 

Graf Hermann & his [first] wife had four children:

1.    KONRAD von Winzenburg .  "Cuonradus comitis Heremanni filius" witnessed the charter dated 1122 under which Adalbert Archbishop of Mainz confirmed an exchange of property with the abbot of Hasungen[676].  "Palatinus comes Willelmus, Marchio Adelbertus, comes Herimannus et frater eius Cunradus…" witnessed a charter dated 15 Jul 1128 under which Adalbert Archbishop of Mainz confirmed an exchange of property between "heredes comites Rodulfi…marchionis…prefati comitis filius Rodulfus…matre eius religiosa vidua Richarde…et fratre predicti pueri Udone iam milite facto et uxorato…" and the provost of Jechenburg[677].  It is assumed that the first of these two charters was issued shortly before the death of Konrad's father Hermann, which is recorded in the same year.  If this is correct, the absence of Konrad's brother Hermann [II] suggests that Konrad was the older son and at that date considered as his father's heir.  However, this hypothesis is cast in doubt by the second charter, in which it is unclear why Konrad's brother Hermann is accorded the comital title while Konrad himself is not.  No primary source has been identified which confirms that Konrad was born from his father's supposed first marriage. 

2.    BEATRIX von Winzenburg (-2 Apr 1160).  The Annales Palidenses record the death in 1160 of "domna Sophia marchionissa" and that of "soror eius Beatrix abbatissa Quidlingeburgensis octavo die…subsecuta"[678].  Abbess of Neuenheerse 1123.  Abbess of Quedlinburg 1138/1160. 

3.    DIETRICH von Winzenburg (-28 Feb 1127).  The primary source which confirms his parentage has not yet been identified.  Canon at Münster Cathedral 1110.  Deacon 1118.  Bishop of Münster 1118.
