  • Notes 
    • Also called Graf von Hohenburg. Count of the Nordgau, Ortenau, and Aargau.

      "Hugo succeeded his father in 910, augmenting his land holdings with the counties of Egisheim, Hohenburg and Pfirt/Ferrette, the latter by right of his wife. To maintain rights over the properties and revenues of the abbey of Lure which had been seized by his father, he moved harshly against its monks. He was described in the chronicles of his time as tyrannical and a persecutor of monks. Struck down by a severe illness and fearing for his life, Hugo promised to restore all the abbey's rights and privileges if he was spared. Granted his plea, he performed an act of mortification and humility before the abbey, accompanied by his three sons. He then became a monk." [Leo van de Pas, citation details below.]
