Chapter 26.  GRAFEN von NELLENBURG

MANEGOLD, son of [BURKHARD [I] Graf im Zürichgau & his wife ---] (-1 May 991, bur Quedlinburg Cathedral).  According to Europäische Stammtafeln, Manegold was the possible son of Burkhard [I] Graf im Zürichgau[698].  "Otto…rex" gave property "in loco Badon…in pago Ufgouue…comitatu Cuonradi comitis" to "Managoldo comiti" by charter dated 27 Aug 987[699]

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

Graf Manegold & his wife had [two] children: 

1.             [son .  patruus of Graf Eberhard [IV][700]m ---.  The name of ---'s wife is not known.  --- & his wife had one child:] 

a)             [LIUTGARD].  m BEZZELIN von Villingen Graf in der Ortenau, son of LANDOLT & his wife Bertha --- (-15 Jul [1024]). 

2.             [EBERHARD [IV] (-[1030/34]).  According to Europäische Stammtafeln, Manegold was the possible father of Graf Eberhard [IV], Vogt of Kloster Einsiedeln and ancestor of the Grafen von Nellenburg[701].  This is certainly indicated by the charter dated 11 Mar 992 under which "Otto…rex" donated property "Saramaresheim in pago Alsaciæ ac comitatu Eberhardi comitis " to Kloster Selz after the death of "Manegoldo comiti", Manegold having started the process before he died[702]m (1009) HEDWIG, daughter of ---.  The Annales Scafhusenses record the marriage in 1009 of "Ebbo comes de Nellenburc" and "consobrinam Heinrici regis Hedewigam…de curie regis"[703].  If "consobrinam" is here used in its precise sense, Hedwig would have been the daughter of one of the sisters of Gisela, daughter of Conrad I King of Upper Burgundy.  According to the early 12th century Vita Eberhardi[704], the mother of Eberhard Graf von Nellenburg (son of Eberhard [IV] Graf im Zürichgau) was --- of Hungary, daughter of István I King of Hungary, although it is somewhat surprising that such a prominent figure as King István, in far off Hungary, would have married his daughter to someone who appears to have been an obscure Swiss count.  If Hedwig was the daughter of King István, there is a remote possibility that she was the same daughter who supposedly married Edmund ætheling, although if this is correct she would have been much older than her second husband.  She founded Kloster Pfaffenschwabenheim as a widow[705].]  Graf Eberhard [IV] & his wife had [four] children: 

a)             BURKHARD [II] (-killed in battle Civitate 18 Jun 1053, bur Reichenau). 

b)             MANEGOLD (-killed in battle Falkenstein, Schwarzwald 17 Aug 1030, bur Reichenau).  The Annales Sangallenses name "Manegolt comes" in 1030[706]

c)             EBERHARD (-26 Mar [1076/79]).  According to Europäische Stammtafeln, Eberhard was the son of Graf Eberhard [IV], built the castle of Nellenburg before 1050 and was ancestor of the Grafen von Nellenburg[707].  Graf im Zürichgau.  The Annales Scafhusenses record that "Eberhardus comes de Nellinburc" founded "Scafhusensem locum" in 1052[708].  "Heinricus…rex" granted property "in villa Kiricheim in pago Nechargovve in comitatu Eberhardi comitis" to "prefatus Eberhardus comes" by charter dated 22 Nov 1059[709].  "Heinricus…rex" granted property "duas villas Hochfeld et Suueichusen cum foresto Heiligenforst in comitatu Gerhardi comitis in pago Nortcowe" to "Eberhardo comiti" by charter dated 22 May 1065[710].  "Heinricus…rex" granted property "in pagis Cletgowe et Hegowe in comitatibus Gerungi et Lodawici comitis" to "comiti Eberhardo" by charter dated 1067[711]m ITA, daughter of --- (-26 Feb or 2 May after 1105).  Nun at St Agnes, Schaffhausen [1080].  The necrology of Zwiefalten records the death "VI Non Mai" of "Ita com de Nellinburc"[712].  Graf Eberhard & his wife had eight children: 

i)               UDO (-killed in battle Tübingen 11 Nov 1078, bur Monastery St Peter).  Archbishop of Trier 1066.  The Gesta Treverorum records the death "13 Nov 1078" and burial in "monasterio St Petri" of "domnus Cuono [error for Udo]…ex Alamannorum prosapia oriundus…patre Everhardo comite, matre Ita"[713]

ii)             EKKEHARD (-24 Nov 1088).  Abbot of Reichenau 1073.  Anti-bishop of Augsburg 1088. 

iii)            EBERHARD (-killed in battle Homburg, Unstrut 6 Jun 1075). 

iv)           HEINRICH (-killed in battle Homburg, Unstrut 6 Jun 1075). 

v)             ADALBERT .  1050. 

vi)           BURKHARD [III] (-21 Jan [1106]).  Graf von Nellenburg.  Vogt von Allerheiligen 1080.  A charter dated "1086 Kal Apr" quoted in the Fundatio Monasterii S Georgii in Nigra Silva names "comes Burchart de Nellenburg"[714].  Vogt von Beuron 1092.  m HADEWICH, daughter of --- (-26 Feb after 1105). 

vii)          ADELHEIDm ARNOLD Graf [von Arnstein].  1051/1053. 

viii)        IRMENGARDm DIETHELM [II] von Toggenburg, son of ---.  1092/1102. 

Graf Eberhard had one illegitimate child by an unknown mistress: 

ix)             BERNHARD von Rissdorf .  1102/1116.  m HILTGARD, daughter of ---. 

d)             [IRMGARD.  According to Europäische Stammtafeln[715], the wife of Werner [I] was sister of "Graf Eppo a. d. H. der Gf von Nellenburg", although the primary source on which this is based has not been identified.  The Graf Eppo [Eberhard] to which this refers has not been identified, although from a chronological point of view it is likely that Irmgard was the daughter of Graf Eberhard [IV] if she was a member of this family.  m WERNER [I] Vogt von Kaufungen, son of [ADALBERT & his wife ---] (-killed in battle 23 Aug 1040). 

nepotes of Burkhard [III] Graf von Nellenburg in 1108[716]

Chapter 27.  GRAFEN von OLTINGEN

- see possible earlier family line, Franconia Nobility, Chapter 4 Grafen von Wetterau

1.             BRUNO [BUCCO] (-1050).  Graf von Oltingen, believed to be the son of Megingoz [Meingaud](- 1010) von Wetterau. (see Frankish Nobilty Chapter 4)  The name of Bruno's wife is not known.  Graf Bruno & his wife had two children:

a)             KUNO (-after 24 Dec 1089).  The Gesta Episcoporum Lausannensium records the donation of "Cononi comiti de Oltudengas fratris suo [Borcardi Lausannensis episcopus]"[721], implying that this was made after the death of his brother.  Graf von Oltingen.  [1080/89].  1086.  m --- de Luxembourg, daughter of GISELBERT Comte de Luxembourg & his wife ---.  The primary source which confirms her parentage and marriage has not yet been identified.   Graf Kuno & his wife had one child: 

i)               REGINA [Kuniza] (-after 12 Apr 1107).  "Regina ex prosapia non obscura…comitis Cononis filia qui frater extit Conraldi viri…in itinere Jerosolimitano defuncti, generi nimirum comitis Pictaviensis" donated property to the abbey of Marcigny-sur-Loire where she was about to become a nun by charter dated 1088, which states that "me maritalis jugi sarcina exoneravit" suggesting an amicable separation from her husband[722].  The references in this charter to "Conraldi" and "comitis Pictaviensis" have not been deciphered.  The charter dated 1095 under which "Guillelmus comes" donated property to Marcigny-sur-Loire names "mater mea Cuniza Cononis filia"[723].  She is named "mater mea Regina" in her son's 1107 charter which also names her father "avi ac nutritoris mei Cononis comitis"[724].  In a charter dated 1139, "Albero…Leodiensium episcopus" notes a donation of property to the abbey of Marcigny-sur-Loire by "domna Ermensendis comitissa de Musalt, quæ uxor extitit…comitis Alberici" on the suggestion of "quadam nobili et religiosa fœmina nomine Regina, sibi enim consanguinea"[725], the original donation presumably being dated before [1109] when Ermesinde married her second husband.  It is likely that "Regina" in this charter was Regina von Oltingen, whose mother was first cousin to Ermesinde.  m (before [1085]) RENAUD II Comte Palatin de Bourgogne, son of GUILLAUME I "le Grand" Comte Palatin de Bourgogne & his wife Etiennette --- (-Palestine 1097 or Summer 1101). 

b)             BURCHARD (-killed in battle Gleichen 24 Dec 1089).  Bishop of Lausanne 1057.  Imperial chancellor for Italy 1079.  The Gesta Episcoporum Lausannensium records the death "in vigilia natalis Domini 1089" of "Borcardus Lausannensis episcopus", recording that he was "filius comitis Bucconis de Oltudengas"[726]

LUDWIG von Pfullendorf (-murdered Tübingen 28 Jan 1135, bur Reichenau).  Abbot of Reichenau 1131. 

1.             ULRICH (-1155 or after).  Graf von Ramsperg.  Graf im Hegau.  m ADELHEID, daughter of --- (-before 28 Jun 1125).  According to Europäische Stammtafeln[727], the wife of Graf Ulrich may have been ADELHEID von Bregenz, daughter of ULRICH [X] Graf von Bregenz & his wife Bertha von Rheinfelden.  Her name was certainly Adelheid as the Casus Monasterii Petrishusensis records the donation by "Roudolfus comes de Rammisberch" dated 1163 which names "matris meæ Adilheide"[728].  The same source, in an earlier passage, records the marriage of Ulrich [X] Graf von Bregenz which suggests that there might be a family connection.  Graf Ulrich & his wife had three children: 

a)             [ULRICHGraf von Pfullendorf 1157-1158.] 

b)             RUDOLF (-9 Jan 1181).  Graf von Ramsperg.  The History of Salem Monastery lists those present at a court of "duce Friderico", including "comite Rudolfo de Ramsperc", undated but dateable to [1152][729]Graf von Pfullendorf.  Graf von Bregenz.  Graf von Lindau.  Vogt von St Gallen 1166.  Vogt of Chur until 1170.  After the death of his only son from malaria in Italy, Graf Rudolf agreed to the transfer of his possessions to Emperor Friedrich I "Barbarossa" between 1167 and 1180[730]m [as her second husband,] ELISABETH, daughter of --- (-11 Oct [1164/80]).  The Casus Monasterii Petrishusensis records the donation of "apud Rinisgimunde" by "Roudolfus comes de Rammisberch" dated 1163 which names "matris meæ Adilheide", witnessed by "uxor mea Elisabeth, frater meus Arnoldus…"[731].  She married [firstly] SIGMOND von Wetter [von Rheinfelden], father of KUNO III [von Wetterau of Rheinfelden][732].  Graf Rudolf & his wife had two children:

KONRAD [Kuno I] ([915/20]-26 Apr 982).  Regino records that in 950 "Chuonradis filius Gebehardis comitis quoniam cum quadem nepte regis se concubuisse sibi imposuit, a quodam Burchardo Saxone monomachia victus, fefellise patuit".  His birth date range is estimated for consistency with the careers of the other known members of his family.  Thietmar records that "a certain Cono defamed the emperor's daughter Conrad's wife and claimed that she had secretly become his wife", but that he lost his right hand in the duel with "Count Burchard" which resulted.  It has been assumed that "Cono" should be identified with Konrad son of Gebhard.  Vogt von Schwarzach.  Graf im Rheingau 948-951.  "Otto…rex" granted property to Worms St Peter, among which "tertiam parte…in castello Lobodunburg…in pago Lobodungouue in comitatu Counradi", by charter dated 13 Jan 953.  Graf in der Ortenau 973, Graf im Rheinfelden.  The necrology of Fulda records the death "982 VI Kal Mai" of "Cuonrat com".  m ---.  The name of Konrad's wife is not known.  Graf Konrad & his wife had two child: 

1.             KONRAD [Kuno II] ([940/45]-1030). KUNO .  Graf von Wetterau and Rheinfelden before 1034.  According to Europäische Stammtafeln, he was the stepbrother of Ida, wife of Graf Ratbod, ancestor of the Grafen von Habsburg.  m JUDITH von Wetterau, daughter of KONRAD I von Wetterau Duke of Swabia.  Graf Kuno & his wife had four children: 

a)             RUDOLF von Wetterau of Rheinfelden (-killed in battle near Hohenmölsen near Merseburg 16 Oct 1080, bur Merseburg cathedral).  The primary source which confirms his parentage has not yet been identified.  He was installed as Duke of Swabia in 1057.  He was elected RUDOLF King of Germany in 1077. 

b)             ADALBERO (-6 Aug 1070).  The primary source which confirms his parentage has not yet been identified.  Monk at St Gallen.  Bishop of Worms 1066. 

c)             UDA .  "Dux Cuno de Beckilnheim" and his wife "Jutta" donated property to Disibodenburg in memory of their daughter Uda.  daughter .  m ---. 

i)               JUDITHm ---. 

d)          ADELGAUD .  The Chronicon Ebersheimense names "Adelgaudum abbatem…filius Iudite, filia sororis Ruodolfi [dux Alemannorum]" when recording that Emperor Heinrich expelled him from the abbey[736].  Abbot of Ebersteinmünster. 

 

2.             [ADELHEID (-7 Dec after 1057, bur Alsleben).  The Annales Stadenses name "Adelheithim amitam Rodolfi [von Rheinfelden]" as wife of "comitem Luderum"[737], although the other parts of these Annals appear unreliable and this statement should be treated with caution until corroborated by another source.  If the relationship with King Rudolf is correctly stated, it is possible that she was his maternal aunt.  m ([1025]) LOTHAR-UDO von Stade, son of SIEGFRIED II Graf von Stade & his wife Adela von Alsleben (after 994-7 Nov 1057).  He succeeded in 1037 as LOTHAR-UDO II Graf von Stade, and in 1056 as LOTHAR-UDO I Markgraf der Nordmark.] 

RUDOLF von Wetterau of Rheinfelden, son of Graf KUNO II & his wife Judith (-killed in battle near Hohenmölsen near Merseburg 16 Oct 1080, bur Merseburg cathedral).  The primary source which confirms his parentage has not yet been identified.  He was installed as Duke of Swabia in 1057 by Agnes de Poitou, widow of Emperor Heinrich III[738].  He became rector of Burgundy, entrusted with the administration of the kingdom, in 1060[739].  He introduced the stricter monastic rules from Fruttuaria[740] into the monastery of St Blasien in 1072.  Graf im Wetterau. He was one of the nobles opposed to his brother-in-law King Heinrich IV.  He was elected RUDOLF King of Germany at Forcheim in Feb 1077 by the German nobility who were affronted by Pope Gregory VI's withdrawal of the order of excommunication against King Heinrich[741].  The Pope remained neutral, but after the king's defeat near Flarcheim on the Unstrut 27 Jan 1080, he renewed the excommunication of the king and impliedly declared support for Rudolf as anti-king by granting remission to the sins of Rudolf's supporters[742].  The Chronicon of Bernold records the death "1080 Id Oct" of "Roudolfus rex", and his burial "apud Merseburc"[743].  The necrology of St Peter im Schwarzwald records the death "XVII Kal Nov" of "Ruodolfus rex"[744].  The identification of this entry with Rudolf von Rheinfelden is rendered more probable by another entry referring to his daughter Agnes as "filia Ruodolfi regis de Arle". 

m firstly (1059) MATHILDE of Germany, daughter of Emperor HEINRICH III King of Germany & his second wife Agnès de Poitou (1045-12 May 1060).  The Annales of Berthold record the marriage in 1059 of "Roudolfus Alemmanorum dux" and "Mahthildam, Heinrici regis sororem" and the death in 1060 of "Mahthilt soror regis"[745].  The Annales Sancti Blasii record the marriage in 1059 of "Roudolfus dux" and "Mahtildam regis sororem" and the death of "Mahtilt uxor Roudolfi ducis" in 1060[746]

m secondly ([after Jun 1066]) ADELAIDE de Savoie, daughter of ODDON Comte de Chablais, Marchese di Susa & his wife Adelaida Marchese di Susa ([1052/53]-[Schloß Twiel] early 1079, bur St Blasius).  The Annales of Berthold, which record the death in 1079 of "uxor…regis Roudolfi…Adelheit, filia Adelheidæ marchionissæ, soror Berhtæ reginæ uxoris Heinrici", prove that she was the daughter of Adelaida di Susa[747].  Her daughter Adelheid is named with "progenitoribus Rodolfo…rege et Adelheida…regina matertera Heinrici quarti inperatoris" in a charter dated [1079/10 Oct 1086][748]Europäische Stammtafeln[749] shows Adelaide's birth date as "after 1052", presumably based on the likelihood that she was born after her sister Berthe as Heinrich IV King of Germany would no doubt have married the older daughter.  Concerning her marriage date, it is likely that the marriage took place after the marriage of her older sister.  She is named "Adalheid coniux Ruodulfi ducis" in the Annales Weissemburgenses, which records that she was accused of being unchaste, was repudiated by her husband two years later, and found asylum at the court of Pope Alexander[750].  The Annales of Berthold record that "rex…Roudolfus…uxor" was "in partes Burgundiæ a Turego divertens", suffering "iniurias" in "quodam castello suo"[751].  The wife of "Rudolfus rex de Arle" is named "Adelheidis" in a list of founders of the monastery of St Peter in Schwarzwald[752].  The Annales Sancti Blasii record the death in 1079 of "Adelheit uxor Roudolfi regis" and her burial "apud Sanctum Blasium"[753].  The Annales of Berthold record the death in 1079 of "uxor…regis Roudolfi…Adelheit, filia Adelheidæ marchionissæ, soror Berhtæ reginæ uxoris Heinrici" and her burial "ad monasterium Sancti Blasii"[754].  According to Europäische Stammtafeln[755], Adelaide married firstly Guigues Comte d'Albon.  Another table in Europäische Stammtafeln[756] shows the first wife of Guigues Comte d'Albon as "Adelais (von Turin)" and their son Guigues II Comte d'Albon as co-heir of Adelaida Marchese di Susa in 1091.  The basis for this alleged first marriage has not been found but it is unlikely to be correct considering Adelaide's likely birth date. 

Rudolf & his second wife had six children: 

1.             ADELHEID von Wetterau of Rheinfelden ([1067/70]-3 May 1090, bur St Blasien).  Given her likely birth date, Adelheid must have been her parents' oldest child.  "Filia eorum Adilheida regina que nupsit regi Ungariorum" and "progenitoribus Rodolfo…rege et Adelheida…regina matertera Heinrici quarti inperatoris" are named in a donation to Sankt-Blasien by charter dated [1079/10 Oct 1086] which also names "cuius filius [Rodolfo et Adelheida] Bertholfus…dux frater regine nostre…cum fratre suo Ottone"[757].  Her birth date is estimated from the estimated birth date range of her daughter Piroska.  The Chronicon of Bernold records that "soror quoque præfati ducis [Berthaldus dux Alemanniæ, filius Roudolfi regis] regina Ungarorum" died in the same month and year as her brother[758].  Her marriage was arranged by King László as part of his policy of seeking papal support, at a time when her father was receiving papal support for his candidacy for the German throne[759].  The necrology of Seeon records the death "V Non May" of "Adelheit regina Ungariorum"[760]m (1077) LÁSZLÓ I King of Hungary, son of BÉLA I King of Hungary & his wife [Ryksa] of Poland (in Poland [1046/50]-Nitra 20 Jun 1095, bur Somogyvár, transferred 1192 to Nagyvárad Cathedral). 

2.             BERTHOLD (-18 May 1090, bur St Blasius).  He was appointed BERTHOLD I Duke of Swabia in 1079 in succession to his father, in opposition to Heinrich IV King of Germany who appointed Friedrich von Staufen to the Swabian duchy.  The Chronicon of Bernold records that "Bertaldi ducis, filii regis Roudolfi" was besieged by supporters of King Heinrich in 1084[761].  The Annales Rosenveldenses records the death in 1090 of "Bertolfus dux filius Rudolfi"[762].  The Chronicon of Bernold records the death in "1090…Maio mense" of "Bertholdus dux Alemanniæ, filius Roudolfi regis"[763].  The necrology of Schaffhausen records the death "XV Kal Jun" of "Bertaldus dux Alemannia"[764]

3.             AGNES von Wetterau of Rheinfelden (-19 Dec 1111).  The Gesta Friderici of Otto of Freising records that "Berhtolfus de castro Zaringen" married "Radolfi filia" but does not name her[765].  The Annales of Berthold record the marriage in 1079 of "Berhtoldus marchio, ducis Berhtoldi filius, adolescens" and "Agnetem, Roudolfi regis filiam"[766].  The Genealogia Zaringorum names "Agnes filia regis Rudolfi Arulacensis" wife of "Berchtoldus", specifying that she was buried with her husband at St Peter in 1111[767].  The necrology of St Peter im Schwarzwald records the death "XIV Kal Jan" of "Agnes uxor ducis Berchtoldi et filia Ruodolfi regis de Arle"[768].  [Betrothed (1077, contract broken) to HERMANN Pfalzgraf von Lotharingen, son of HEINRICH "Furiosus" Pfalzgraf von Lothringen [Ezzonen] & his wife Mathilde of Lotharingia (-20 Sep 1085).  The Annales of Berthold name "Herimannus comes Palatinus, qui gener regis Roudolfi futurus erat" in 1077[769].  It is assumed that this passage indicates that Pfalzgraf Hermann was betrothed to one of the daughters of Rudolf von Rheinfelden, although no other reference to this fact has been found.  If this is correct, the daughter was presumably Agnes as Adelheid was already married in 1077.]  m (1079) BERTHOLD, son of BERTHOLD I [von Zähringen] Duke of Carinthia & his first wife Richwara of Swabia [Babenberg] ([1050]-12 Apr 1111, bur St Peter in Schwarzwald).  He was installed as BERTHOLD II Duke of Swabia in 1092 by Emperor Heinrich IV.  He renounced his claims to Swabia in favour of Friedrich I von Staufen, although he retained the title of Duke[770].  Herzog von Zähringen 1100. 

4.             BERTHA von Wetterau of Rheinfelden (-20 Jan after 1128, bur Mehrerau).  The Casus Monasterii Petrishusensis names "comes Oudalricus…Brigantium", records his betrothal to "filiam Wernheri comitis de Habichisburc" but states that he "concubit latenter cum Berhta filia Ruodolfi regis"[771].  Gräfin von Kellmunz.  The Casus Monasterii Petrishusensis names "Bertha relicta Oudalrici" and "filiorum suorum Roudolfi et Oudalrici" recording their donation after her husband died[772].  The necrology of Augiæ Maioris records the death "XIII Kal Feb" of "Bertha com"[773]m (before 1077) ULRICH [X] Graf von Bregenz, son of ULRICH [IX] Graf von Bregenz & his wife --- (-[28/29] Oct [1097], bur Mehrerau). 

5.             OTTO [IV] von Wetterau of Rheinfelden (-young, bur St Blasius).  "Filia eorum Adilheida regina que nupsit regi Ungariorum" and "progenitoribus Rodolfo…rege et Adelheida…regina matertera Heinrici quarti inperatoris" are named in a donation to Sankt-Blasien by charter dated [1079/10 Oct 1086] which also names "cuius filius [Rodolfo et Adelheida] Bertholfus…dux frater regine nostre…cum fratre suo Ottone"[774]. OTTO von Wetterau of Rheinfelden & his wife had one child:

a)              RUDOLF [II] von Wetterau (1070 - 1130 bur Wettingen Abbey). [Graf im Wetterau 1090 - 1130], [Graf im Rheinfelden 1079 -1130]. Wettingen Abbey manuscripts dated 1150 states that a Rudolf Graf of Wetterau comes south to his cousins the von Tegerfeldens in hiding after the death of his uncle Berthold I Duke of Swabia in 1090. One must note the major change in families first names probably due to the truth of the facts that they were in hiding with the death of his grandfather Rudolf King of Germany 1079/80. And with the murder of his father that same year, and the change of power for the Duke of Swabia that was in opposition with another claimant. m unknown. RUDOLF Graf in Wetterau, Graf im Rheinfelden and his wife had two children:

i)               SIGMOND von Wetterau (1100 Schloss Tegerfelden - 1151 bur Muir). Abbey records that Sigmond, son of Rudolf von Wetterau, Graf im Rheinfelden Graf im Wetterau became one of the knights of Baldingen, who were employed by the Barons of Tegerfelden. Note by this time the family's title Graf of Wetterau was purely in name only for they had lost most of their land in that area. m ELIZABETH, daughter of ---.  Sigmond, Graf of Wetterau & wife had two children: 

a)               KONRAD [KUNO III] von Wetterau, Graf im Rheinfelden (?1140 - 1205 bur Wettingen Abbey, but not identified) The primary source which confirms his parentage has not yet been identified.

Chapter 30.  HERREN von STAUFEN

The Swabian "Staufen" family were representative of a new type of nobility which emerged in Germany in the second half of the 11th century.  They were unconnected either with the original German tribes, such as the Saxons or Bavarians, or with the artificial political creations such as Lotharingia.  The family owed its rise to power to strategically placed castles, in particular the castle of Stauf on the Staufenberg near Göppingen, from which the family took its name.  The Staufer broadened their influence by building further castles and eventually centred their activities around the town of Waiblingen in Swabia, from which their Italian supporters eventually adopting the name "Ghibellines". 

1.             FRIEDRICH (-after Jul 1027).  Graf 987.  Graf im Sundergau 1003.  m ---.  The name of Friedrich's wife is not known.  Graf Friedrich & his wife had one child: 

a)             FRIEDRICH.  The name of Friedrich's father is gleaned from a genealogical annotation to the correspondence of Abbot Wibald of Stablo[775].  Pfalzgraf von Schwaben 1053.  He founded the convent of Lorch.  m ---.  The name of Friedrich's wife is not known.  Graf Friedrich & his wife had two children: 

i)               FRIEDRICH von Büren (-[1068]).  The primary source which confirms his parentage has not yet been identified. 

ii)             ADELHEID.  The primary source which confirms her parentage and marriage has not yet been identified.  Founded the convent of Langenau.  m MANEGOLD "der Ältere" Pfalzgraf of Swabia .  1070/76.

2.             BERTHA.  Her existence is based on the genealogical data used to justify the annulment of the first marriage of Friedrich I "Barbarossa" King of Germany on the grounds of consanguinity[776]m LANDOLT, son of ---.  Vogt der Reichenau 992.  This couple were the ancestors of the Zähringen family of Baden. 

FRIEDRICH von Büren, son of FRIEDRICH Pfalzgraf von Schwaben & his wife --- (-[1068]).  The primary source which confirms his parentage has not yet been identified. 

m ([1047]) HILDEGARD, daughter of --- (-[1094/23 Jul 1095]).  "Hildegardis…cum filiis meis, Ottone…Argentinenis ecclesie episcopo Suevorumque duce Friderico, Lodewico, Walthario, Cunrado et filia mea Adalheida" made a donation to the monastery of St Fides at Schlettstadt in Alsace dated 1094, presumably just before she died[777].  She may have been the heiress of the land on which her son later built the castle of Stauf.  Jackman suggests[778] that she was Hildegard, daughter of Graf Otto & his wife Hildegard von Egisheim.  Decker-Hauff suggested[779] that Hildegard was the daughter of Louis de Mousson (who would have been Hildegard's sister if Jackman's theory is correct).  Jackman says that this should be rejected on chronological grounds as Sophie de Lorraine, the wife of Louis de Mousson, must have been born in [1020] and could not therefore have been the grandmother of Friedrich I Duke of Swabia, born in [1050]. 

Friedrich & his wife had six children: 

1.             OTTO (-3 Aug 1100).  The De Fundatione Monasterii Sancti Fides Sletstatensis names "Fredericus dux Alemannorum [qui fuit Friderici ducis Swevie], qui Romani imperatoris filiæ coniugo, et duo eius fratres Argentinensis episcopus Otto et Conradus", in relation to the foundation of the monastery in the diocese of Strasbourg in 1094[780].  Bishop of Strasbourg 1083-1084.  "Ottone Argentinensi…episcopo" and "fratres mei dux…Suetiæ Fridericus, Ledeuvicus et Galtharius" donated property in "Scelstat villa, in pago Alsatiæ et in comitatu Beirricheim" to the abbey of Conques by charter dated 23 Jul 1095, naming "matre…nostra fratreque nostro Conrado…defunctis"[781].  Founded 1094, jointly with his brother Ludwig, the convent of St Fides at Schlettstadt.

Chapter 35.  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 is possible that it related to a function at the ducal court similar to that of the palatine at the court of the Carolingian emperors[842].  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 held it 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[843], the Grafen von Dillingen held the Pfalzgrafschaft prior to 1146 but no trace of this has so far been found in the references to the Dillingen family in contemporary primary sources.  The primary sources which confirm the parentage and marriages of members of this family have not yet been identified, unless otherwise stated below. 

 

Four brothers, parents not known. 

1.             HUGO [I] .  Graf von Tübingen 1078.  He and his brothers founded Kloster Blaubeuren in [1080/85][844]

2.             HEINRICH (-2 Jan before 1103).  Graf von Tübingen.  The Necrologii Blauburani records the death "IV Non Ian" of "Heinricus com de Thubingen"[845]m ADELHEID von Enzberg, daughter of ZEISOLF von Enzberg Graf im Kraichgau & his wife --- (-11 Mar 1122).  The Annales Spirenses name "Adilheidis comitissa filius Ceizolfus comes" as wife of "Heinricum palatinum in Tuwingen", specifying that she was childless[846].  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[847].  The Necrologii Blauburani records the donation "IV Id Nov" of "Adelheit com cum viro suo Heinrico comite de Tuwingen"[848]

3.             ANSELM (-25 Dec ----).  1078.  The Necrologii Blauburani records the death "VIII Kal Ian" of "Anshelmus com"[849]

4.             SIGIBOTO (-[2 Dec ----).  1078. 

 

1.             HUGO [II] von Tübingen, son of --- (-[1120]).  Graf von Tübingenm HEMMA von Arnstein, daughter of LUDWIG [I] Graf von Arnstein/Lahn (-20 Feb before 1150).  The necrology of Zwiefalten records the death "X Kal Mar" of "Hemma com"[850].  Graf Hugo [II] & his wife had [three] children: 

a)             HUGO [III] (-1152 before 19 Aug).  Graf von Tübingen 1125/39.  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][851]Pfalzgraf 1146.  m HEMMA von Zollern, daughter of FRIEDRICH I Graf von Zollern & his wife Udalhild [von Urach].  A 13th century genealogy refers to the two daughters of "Burchardus comes de Zolre" as "matrem palentini de Tuwig et alteram [uxorem] Werenherus comes"[852].  1152.  Graf Hugo [III] & his wife had [five] children: 

i)               FRIEDRICH (-25 Oct 1162 or after).  Pfalzgraf von Tübingen.  The Necrologii Blauburani records the death "VIII Kal Nov" of "Fridericus palatinus Thubigensis"[853]

ii)             HUGO [II] (-18 Dec 1182).  Pfalzgraf von Tübingen 1153.  

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]"[854].  The necrology of Zwiefalten records the death "VII Id Apr" of "Heinricus com de Duwingin"[855]

iv)           [ADELHEIDm --- Graf von Dachau .]   

v)             [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"[856].  It does not appear that this can be correct.  According to Europäische Stammtafeln[857], 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.] 

b)             HEINRICH .  Graf. 

c)             [WERNER .  Canon at Augsburg Cathedral [1138].

Pfalzgraf Hugo [II] & his wife had four children: 

1.             HEINRICH (-after 1171).  The Historia Monasterii Marchtelanensis names "comes de Tuwingen Hainricus, filius fundatoris nostri" when recording that he was "leprosus effectus" and that he made a donation to the monastery when near death[861].   

2.             RUDOLF [I] (-9 Apr 1219, bur Bebenhusen).  The Historia Monasterii Marchtelanensis records the donation by "dominus Rudolfus palatinus comes, filius fundatoris nostri" and his death "1219 V Id Apr" and burial "in Bebinhusen"[862]Pfalzgraf von Tübingen.  He founded Kloster Bebenhausen in 1180.  The necrology of Augiæ Maioris records the death "V Id Apr" of "Rudolphus palatinus"[863]m (before 30 Jul 1181) MECHTILD von Gleiberg Gräfin von Giessen, daughter and heiress of WILHELM Graf von Gleiberg & his wife Salome von Isenburg (-12 Jan after 1203).  Pfalzgraf Rudolf [I] & his wife had [six] children:
