  • Notes 
    • Count of Altdorf.

      "The Swabian Welfs emerge from obscurity with Rudolf (d. 992), who established a church at Altdorf, north of Lake Constance, where, until 1126, he and his descendants, including Barbarossa's maternal grandparents, were buried. The family was known in the twelfth century, accordingly, as the Altdorfer rather than as the Welfs." [Frederick Barbarossa: The Prince and the Myth, citation details below.]
