  • Notes 
    • "The Brave." Margrave of Austria. Genealogist Charles Evans proved that he was a son of his father's first wife Glismond, not of his second wife Frozza Orseolo, descendant of the Orseolo Doges of Venice.

      From Wikipedia:

      He increased the territory of his margraviate by amalgamating the Bohemian and Hungarian frontier marches up to the Thaya, March and Leitha rivers in what is today Lower Austria. In his time, the colonisation of the remote Waldviertel region was begun by his ministeriales, the Kuenring knights.

      Ernest received his epithet due to his fighting against King Béla I of Hungary and his son Géza I on behalf of their rival Solomon according to the chronicler Lambert of Hersfeld. In the commencing Investiture Controversy, he sided with King Henry IV of Germany and battled against the Saxons, dying at the Battle of Langensalza.
