    Other Events:

    • Alternate death: Aft 1068

    Notes:

    Count in the Riesgau and Swabian Count Palatine. "He is generally seen as the ancestor of the Hohenstaufen dynasty, also called the Staufer dynasty, which ruled the Holy Roman Empire from 1138 to 1208 and from 1212 to 1254." [Leo van de Pas]

    Frederick married Hildegard of Egisheim-Dagsburg about 1042. Hildegard (daughter of Gerhard I) was born about 1028; died about 1095. [Group Sheet] [Family Chart]


  2. 9.  Hildegard of Egisheim-Dagsburg was born about 1028 (daughter of Gerhard I); died about 1095.

    Notes:

    Also called Hildegard von Schlettstadt. "Her naming as 'von Schlettstadt' arises from her foundation between 1087 and 1094 of the abbey of St. Fides (Sainte Foy) in Schlettstadt, the oldest burial place of the Hohenstaufen in Alsace, where she was probably buried." [Leo van de Pas]

    Also from LVDP: "Her parentage is not established with certainty, but according to recent researches she was probably the daughter of Graf Gerhard III von Egisheim-Dagsburg. [...] The brother of her probable father was Bishop Bruno of Toul, the later Pope Leo IX." This is a bit confusing, since according to both van de Pas's own site and German-language Wikipedia, the Gerhard who was brother to Leo IX was Gerhard I, not III, but quite possibly he was both a I and a III depending on which of several titles or dignities one is counting.

    Given in Ancestral Roots, 8th ed., as a daughter of Richard III, Duke of Normandy, and Adele of France, but Stewart Baldwin's overview of the evidence at The Henry Project demonstrates that she was almost certainly a daughter of Baldwin IV's second marriage to an unknown sister of Richard's.
