  • Notes 
    • Margrave of Nieder-Lausitz. Count of Groitzsch.

      From the site of Leo van de Pas:

      Dedo participated in five campaigns of Emperor Friedrich I Barbarossa. In 1177, before Pope Alexander III he took the oath on behalf of the emperor as a witness to the Peace of Venice which ended the schism in the papacy. In the Meissen succession dispute of 1190 he and his sons were on the side of Albrecht 'der Stolze' in his campaign to gain Meissen from his younger brother Dietrich who had been made heir to the margraviate by their father Otto.

      Dedo resided mainly at Rochlitz and from here, like his brother Otto, he pursued a policy of intensive clearing and settlement and the establishment of the new house abbey of Wechselburg as a family burial site.
