  • Notes 
    • Called "der Erlauchte," the Illustrious. Count of Württemberg.

      "Eberhard supported the Bohemian nobility in their struggle against Albert I and his successor Henry VII. Vogt Konrad IV von Weinberg, who acted on the orders of Henry VII, declared war on Eberhard, causing much distress in Württemberg. Württemberg was saved from defeat by the death of Henry VII on 24 August 1313 and the 1314 elections Louis IV and Frederick the Fair as rival kings. By maneuvering tactically between the two, Eberhard managed to offset his territorial losses and even gain some more territories. His participation in the war in Bohemia brought in additional funding, which he used to purchase land and towns in Swabia from impoverished noble families, for example, the count palatine of Tübingen."
