     ; Per Med Lands:
     "AYMAR [I] de Poitiers . Comte de Valentinois. It is assumed that he inherited the county of Valentinois from his wife’s family, although the primary source which confirms that this is correct has not yet been identified. An enquiry dated 1421 by the parliament at Poitiers records that "Raimon Duc de Narbonne, Comte de Tolose et Marquis de Provence" granted "la comté de Dioys" to "Aimart Comte de Valentinois" in 1189[900]. "Aemarus Pictaviensis" placed the monks of Léoncel under his protection by an undated charter, but dateable to the mid-12th century, sealed by "A Pictaviensis comitis Valentini"[901]. The Historia Albigensis records "Ademarus Pictavensis" as one of the supporters of the comte de Toulouse who fortified his castles against threat [from Simon de Montfort][902].
     "m [RIXENDE], daughter of ---. The name and origin of Aymar’s wife are unknown. According to Europäische Stammtafeln[903], she was Rixende, possible sister of Eustache Bishop and Comte de Valentinois, daughter of ---. Julien Chevalier refers to speculation that Bishop Eustache introduced Aymar de Poitiers into the region and gave him his daughter, presumably illegitimate, in marriage but emphasises that there is no documentary evidence to support this[904]. Aymar's use of the name Eustache for his second son does suggest there may be a family relationship. The relationship appears to be confirmed by the charter dated 1217 under which her son "Eustachius prepositus Valentinus" confirmed the donation of "W[illelm]us Valentinus prepositus avunculus meus" of "Clivum" to the abbey of Saint-Chaffre, Saint-Guy du Puy[905], although the same donation was confirmed earlier by another charter in which "Wilelmus Pictaviensis et…Eustachius frater Wilelmi" name the donor "patruus noster Wilelmus Vivariensis episcopus"[906]. The charter dated Mar 1138 under which her supposed brother "Wilelmus Valencie prepositus" confirmed a donation to the Templars at Richerenches at the request of "Riperto de Charrovalis", confirmed by "comes Eustachius frater W. prepositi predicti"[907], suggests that "avunculus" should be preferred over "patruus" and that the donor was the maternal uncle of the brothers Guillaume and Eustache de Poitiers. Another perspective is provided by an enquiry dated 1421 by the parliament at Poitiers which records that "aux anciens des pays de Valentinois et de Dioys…la Comtesse de Marsanne" was challenged "estant veuve , son of Guillaume (?) de Poitiers, Cte de Valentinois and (?) de Beziers, les evesques de Valence et de Dye" and that she married her daughter to "un surnommé de Poitiers", who was passing through the town of Montélimar, to enlist his support and that "Guillaume de Poitiers…comte de Valentinois et de Dioys" was the son of this marriage[908]. According to the charter dated 22 Sep 1099, under which "Guillelmus Hugo Adhemarii de Montilio et Giraudus Adhemarii de Montilio fratres…filii…defunctorum…Giraudeti Adhemarii de Montilio et Alisiæ de Poligniaco" confirmed the donations of "patres et avunculi nostri" dated 21 Mar 1094 and of "avum nostrum" dated 22 Sep 1099 to Montélimar, witnessed by "Guillelmus de Pictavia comes Valentinensis et Diensis, Eustachius de Pictavia, præpositus ecclesiæ cathedralis civitatis Valentiæ, fratres et filii defunctorum…Aymarii de Pictaviæ et Veronicæ Adhemarii de Montilio amitæ…contrahentium, quondam comitum Valentinen. et Dyens"[909], she was Véronique Adémar de Monteil, daughter of Giraud Adémar de Monteil & his wife [Anne d’Albon]. This charter is classified as spurious in the compilation, along with other similar charters in the same series, and it is uncertain how much of the genealogical information contained therein is based on historical fact."

; Per Genealogics:
     "Albrecht was born about 1177, the youngest son of Otto I, Markgraf von Brandenburg, and his second wife Adelheid whose origins are unknown. He took over the margraviate after the death of his eldest half-brother Otto II in 1205. In August that year he married Mathilde, Markgräfin von der Nieder-Lausits, daughter of Konrad, Markgraf von der Nieder-Lausitz, and Elisabeth of Poland. Of their four children, Johann I, Otto III and Matilde would have progeny.
     "From 1184 Albrecht was count of Arneburg in the Altmark claimed by Otto II and belonging to Brandenburg. He was temporarily imprisoned in 1194 by his brother for unrecorded reasons, then took part in the Third Crusade (1189-1192). He was present at the foundation ceremony of the Order of Teutonic Knights on 5 March 1198 at Acre's Tempel which was attended by secular and clerical leaders of the Latin kingdom. In the disputes over the German throne between the Hohenstaufen and Welfs early in the 14th century Albrecht, like his brother Otto before him, initially supported King Philipp von Hohenstaufen, son of Emperor Friedrich Barbarossa, but after Philipp's assassination in 1208 he went over to the Welfs, as Emperor Otto IV promised his assistance in securing the margraviate of Brandenburg against the Danes, which he confirmed in a document of 1212.
     "During this time, Albrecht was continually in dispute with Archbishop Albrecht I of Magdeburg.
     "Albrecht secured the regions of Teltow, Prignitz and parts of the Uckermarck for the march of Brandenburg, but he lost Pomerania.
     "At his death on 25 February 1220 his two sons were still under age. The guardianship over them was first taken by Archbishop Albrecht, and from 1221 by their mother Mathilde. From her death in 1225 the brothers ruled the margraviate together."3

     "ALBRECHT von Brandenburg, son of OTTO I Markgraf von Brandenburg & his second wife Adelheid [Ada of Holland?] ([1172/76]-25 Feb 1220, bur Kloster Lehnin). The Cronica Principum Saxonie names (in order) "Ottonem, Henricum et Albertum" as the three sons of "Otto primus [filius Alberti Ursi]"[171]. No primary source has yet been found which names his mother. Albrecht was not born in 1170, the date of the charter under which "Otto…Brandenburgensis marchio et Judita uxor mea, filiique nostri Otto maior et Henricus minor" granted customs privileges to the town of Brandenburg by charter dated 1170[172]. By that time Markgraf Otto I´s first wife Judyta would have been nearly 40 years old. It is therefore unlikely that she was his mother. A charter of Markgraf Otto I dated 1 Jan 1177 names "Adelheida conjugis mea et…heredibus meis Ottone et Heinrico et Adelberto"[173]. "Otto Brandenburgensis marchio" founded Kloster Arendsee, with the consent of "meis heredibus Ottone, Heinrico, Adelberto filiis meis et uxore mea Adelheide", by charter dated 1184[174]. An undated memorial of the foundation of Kloster Arendsee recalls "Ottonis Marchionis et Alheydis uxoris eius" as founders of the church and names "Ottonis, Heynrici et Adelberti filiorum suorum"[175]. Graf von Arneburg: "Otto…secundus marchio in Brandenburch" donated property to the Domkapitel, Brandenburg by charter dated 28 May 1197, which names "patris mei Ottonis, marchionis Brandenburgensis…frater meus Albertus comes in Arneburch"[176]. "Otto secundus marchio" devastated the land of "Albertum fratrem suum", and captured and imprisoned him, but was obliged to release him and declare him his heir[177]. "Adelbertus comes in Arneborch" confirmed the donation to Kloster Ilsenburg of "bona eorum in Pulcriz" made by "avus noster Adelbertus…marchio in Brandenborch" by charter dated 1204[178]. He succeeded his [half-]brother in 1205 as ALBRECHT II Markgraf von Brandenburg.

; Per Genealogics:
     “Konrad was the son of Dedo V, Markgraf der Nieder-Lausitz, and Matilde von Heinsberg, heiress of Sommerschenburg. On his father's death in 1190 he inherited Lausitz and the county of Eilenburg, and in 1207 Groitzsch and Sommerschenburg from his brother Dietrich. In 1195 Emperor Heinrich IV repealed the margraviate of Meissen, and Konrad became the highest-ranking margrave in Saxony and the senior member of the House of Wettin.
     “After 29 January 1180 Konrad married Elisabeth of Poland, daughter of Mieszko III, high duke of Poland, and Elisabeth of Hungary. Their son Konrad died unmarried before 6 May 1210; of their two daughters, Mathilde would have progeny, marrying Albrecht II, Markgraf von Brandenburg.
     “From 1196 to 1198 Konrad took part in the crusade of Emperor Heinrich VI, and in Italy on the journey to and from the Holy Land. In 1207 he held an event at the castle of Deiulitzsch for the hearing of rights disputes and the reaffirment of fiefs ('Gerichts- und Lehnstag').
     “Konrad died on 6 May 1210, and was buried at the monastery of Zschillen. Elisabeth, who had died in 1209, was buried in the convent of Dobrilugk. Since Konrad died without male heirs, his property passed to his cousin Dietrich IV 'der Bedrängte', Markgraf von Meissen. There was now no longer an independent margraviate of Lausitz (Lusatia).”.6

; Per Med Lands:
     "ADA (-after 1205). The Chronologia Johannes de Beke names (in order) "Theodricum succedentem comitem Hollandie, Wilhelmum comitem Orientalis Frisie, Florencium prepositum Traiecetensis ecclesie, Robertum presidium Kenemarie, Beatricem, Elizabeth, Adelheydim et Margaretam comitissam Clivie" as the children of Count Floris III & his wife[493]. "Ada…marchionissa de Brandebrug" donated land "in Pole" to Rijnsburg abbey, with the consent of "Wilhelmi comitis et Florentii fratrum meorum et Ade comitisse matris mee et Ade neptis mee", by charter dated 1205[494]. The identity of Ada´s Brandenburg husband is difficult to establish with complete certainty. According to Europäische Stammtafeln[495], he was Otto I Markgraf von Brandenburg. Markgraf Otto I´s second wife is named "Adelheid" in Brandenburg sources ("Otto Brandenburgensis marchio" founded Kloster Arendsee, with the consent of "meis heredibus Ottone, Heinrico, Adelberto filiis meis et uxore mea Adelheide", by charter dated 1184[496]). The similarity between "Ada" and "Adelheid" appears at first sight to establish the connection. However, the chronology is not ideal. It is most likely that "Adelheid" was the mother of Markgraf Otto I´s youngest son Markgraf Albrecht II. Albrecht II was named in the charter dated 1 Jan 1177 quoted above, so was born in the mid-1170s. Albrecht is named in an 1197 document in his own capacity, indicating that he had already reached the age of majority. If Ada of Holland was his mother, she would have been 12 years old at the most when he was born, assuming that she was her parents´ oldest child which appears unlikely: the order of birth of her parents´ daughters as set out in the Chronologia Johannes de Beke, quoted above, suggests that "Adelheydim" was the third daughter. While it is acknowledged that the order of births as recorded in such sources is not consistently reliable, the order in which Count Floris´s sons are named in the Chronologia does appear to correspond to the order of their births. If Ada was her parents´ third daughter, it is unlikely that she was born before [1166/68], also bearing in mind that the birth of the couple´s oldest son Dirk should probably be placed in the 1160s in view of his marriage which is recorded in 1186. This date [1166/68] makes it impossible that Ada was the mother of Markgraf Albrecht II. A second possibility for Ada´s Brandenburg husband is Otto II Markgraf von Brandenburg, stated to be the case by Alfred Riedel who compiled the Codex Diplomaticus Brandenburgensis series in the mid-19th century. In his index volume, he lists "Ada Margräfin v. Brandenburg, Gemahlin Otto´s II, Schwester des Grafen Wilhelm von Holland", although he cites no primary source which confirms that this statement is correct[497]. This possibility was also discussed by Hermann Krabbo in the early 20th century[498]. All problems of chronology would be resolved if Otto II was Ada´s husband. In addition, the timing of her 1205 donation to Rijnsberg abbey would have followed her husband´s death. It would also be easier to explain her return to Holland (why would she have gone back if Markgraf Albrecht II had been her son?) and also the absence of any reference to Brandenburg relatives in the 1205 charter. References to the wife of Markgraf Otto II are found in the Cronica Principum Saxonie which records that "Otto secundus" had "uxorem cum magna sibi in Werda gloria presentatam"[499], and Pulchawa´s Böhmischer Chronik which states that "Otto secundus, filius primi Ottonis" married "uxorem…sibi traditam cum magna gloria in Verdn"[500]. Both sources say that she was childless. She is also referred to in three charters, the first in which Pope Innocent III summoned Otto II to treat his wife with love, the second dealing with an attempt to murder Ada, the third Otto´s participation in a crusade hoping that God will favour him with the birth of an heir[501].

     "OTTO von Brandenburg, son of ALBRECHT "der Bär" Markgraf von Brandenburg [Ballenstedt] & his wife Sophie von Winzenburg ([1126/28]-7 Mar 1184, bur Kloster Lehnin). The Cronica Principum Saxonie names (in order) "Ottonem, Bernardum ducem Saxonie, Sifridum episcopum Brandenburgensem, postea archiepiscopum Bremensem et Hadewigem [uxor] Otto marchio Misenensis" as children of "Albertus Ursus"[122]. He was co-ruler with his father in 1144. Rudolf Bishop of Halberstadt confirmed an exchange between Hillersleben and Walbeck by charter dated 11 Apr 1145, which names "Adelbertus marchio et Otto filius eius" among the representatives of Hillersleben[123]. "Adelbertus…marchio Brandenburgensis" donated property to the convent at Magdeburg, with the consent of "filiorum meorum Heinrici canonici sancti Mauritii in Magdaburg, Ottonis marchionis, Hermanni, Adelberti, Theoderici et Bernhardi comitum", by charter dated [end May/early Jun] 1151[124]. "Adelbertus, Brandenburgensis Marchio, et Otto Marchio, filius meus" donated property to Kloster Leitzlau, for the repose of "mee coniugis Sophie", by charter dated 1162[125]. "Alberto Brandenburgensi marchione, Ottone filio eius…Hermanno comite de Horlemunde filio eius, Theoderico comite de Werben filio eius, Alberto comite de Balstede filio eius, Bernardo comite de Anehalt filio eius…" witnessed the charter dated 1170 under which "Cazimerus…Pomeranorum princeps" donated property to the church of Havelberg, with the consent of "fratre nostro Boguzlao"[126]. He succeeded his father in 1170 as OTTO I Markgraf von Brandenburg. "Otto Brandenburgensis marchio" donated property to the bishopric of Havelberg, for the souls of "…Judithe…nostre conjugis", by charter dated 1170[127]. "Otto…Brandenburgensis marchio et Judita uxor mea, filiique nostri Otto maior et Henricus minor" granted customs privileges to the town of Brandenburg by charter dated 1170[128]. "Otto…Brandenburgensis marchio" donated churches "in villa Cechowe" to the bishop of Brandenburg by charter dated 28 Dec 1170, witnessed by "Juditha marchionissa, Otto et Heirnicus filii eius…"[129]. The Cronica Principum Saxonie records that "Otto primus [filius Alberti Ursi]" founded "cenobium Leninense ordinis Cisterciensis", where he was buried, in 1180, and in 1184 "Arnesse claustrum dominarum ordinis Benedicti"[130]. "Otto Brandenburgensis marchio" founded Kloster Arendsee, with the consent of "meis heredibus Ottone, Heinrico, Adelberto filiis meis et uxore mea Adelheide", by charter dated 1184[131]. An undated memorial of the foundation of Kloster Arendsee recalls "Ottonis Marchionis et Alheydis uxoris eius" as founders of the church, confirmed by "Ottonis, Heynrici et Adelberti filiorum suorum"[132]. Pulchawa´s Böhmischer Chronik records that "Otto filius Alberti" died in 1184 and was buried "in Leninensi monasterio"[133].
     "m firstly (6 Jan 1148) as her second husband, JUDYTA of Poland, divorced wife of LÁSZLÓ of Hungary [later LÁSZLÓ II King of Hungary], daughter of BOLES?AW III "Krzywousty/Wrymouth" Prince of Poland & his second wife Salome von Berg-Schelklingen ([1133]-8 Jul [1171/75], bur Brandenburg Cathedral). The Annales Polanorum name "[filiam] Iuditham" in addition to naming the six sons of Prince Boles?aw[134]. The Annales Cracovienses Compilati record that "Boleslaus dat filiam suam regi Ungarie" in 1136, but does not name her[135]. She is shown as King László's possible wife in Europäische Stammtafeln which also names her Judyta[136], but the source on which this is based has not been identified. "Otto…Brandenburgensis marchio et Judita uxor mea, filiique nostri Otto maior et Henricus minor" granted customs privileges to the town of Brandenburg by charter dated 1170[137]. "Otto…Brandenburgensis marchio" donated churches "in villa Cechowe" to the bishop of Brandenburg by charter dated 28 Dec 1170, witnessed by "Juditha marchionissa, Otto et Heirnicus filii eius…"[138]. The Regesta Historia Brandenburgensis records the death "VIII Id Jul" of "Juditha marchionissa gemma Polonorum"[139]. An undated charter, dated to [1190], refers to rights previously granted by "marchio Otto Brand." for the soul of "uxoris sue Juditte marchionisse"[140].
     "m secondly ([1171/75]) ADELHEID, daughter of ---. A charter of Markgraf Otto I dated 1 Jan 1177 names "Adelheida conjugis mea et…heredibus meis Ottone et Heinrico et Adelberto"[141]. "Otto Brandenburgensis marchio" founded Kloster Arendsee, with the consent of "meis heredibus Ottone, Heinrico, Adelberto filiis meis et uxore mea Adelheide", by charter dated 1184[142]. An undated memorial of the foundation of Kloster Arendsee recalls "Ottonis Marchionis et Alheydis uxoris eius" as founders of the church[143]. According to Europäische Stammtafeln[144], she was Ada of Holland, daughter of Floris III Count of Holland & his wife Ada of Scotland. Ada´s marriage into the Brandenburg family is confirmed by the charter dated 1205 under which "Ada…marchionissa de Brandebrug" donated land "in Pole" to Rijnsburg abbey, with the consent of "Wilhelmi comitis et Florentii fratrum meorum et Ade comitisse matris mee et Ade neptis mee"[145]. The similarity between "Ada" and "Adelheid" appears at first sight to establish the connection. However, the chronology is not ideal. It is most likely that "Adelheid" was the mother of Markgraf Otto I´s youngest son Markgraf Albrecht II, as discussed more fully below. Albrecht II was named in the charter dated 1 Jan 1177 quoted above, so was born in the mid-1170s. Albrecht is named in an 1197 document in his own capacity, indicating that he had already reached the age of majority. If Ada of Holland was his mother, she would have been 12 years old at the most when he was born, assuming that she was her parents´ oldest child (which appears unlikely). The Chronologia Johannes de Beke names (in order) "Theodricum succedentem comitem Hollandie, Wilhelmum comitem Orientalis Frisie, Florencium prepositum Traiecetensis ecclesie, Robertum presidium Kenemarie, Beatricem, Elizabeth, Adelheydim et Margaretam comitissam Clivie" as the children of Count Floris III and his wife[146]. This suggests that "Adelheydim" was the third daughter. While it is acknowledged that the order of births as recorded in such sources is not consistently reliable, the order in which Count Floris´s sons are named in the Chronologia does appear to correspond to the order of their births. If Ada was her parents´ third daughter, it is unlikely that she was born before [1166/68], also bearing in mind that the birth of the couple´s oldest son Dirk should probably be placed in the 1160s in view of his marriage which is recorded in 1186. This date [1166/68] makes it impossible that Ada was the mother of Markgraf Albrecht II. A second possibility for Ada´s Brandenburg husband is Otto II Markgraf von Brandenburg (see below), stated to be the case by Alfred Riedel who compiled the Codex Diplomaticus Brandenburgensis series in the mid-19th century: in his index volume, he lists "Ada Margräfin v. Brandenburg, Gemahlin Otto´s II, Schwester des Grafen Wilhelm von Holland", although he cites no primary source which confirms that this statement is correct[147]. All problems of chronology would be resolved if Otto II was Ada of Holland´s husband, and "Adelheid", second wife of Markgraf Otto I, was a different person. In addition, the timing of Ada´s 1205 donation to Rijnsberg abbey would have followed her husband´s death. It would also be easier to explain Ada´s return to Holland (why would she have gone back if Markgraf Albrecht II had been her son?) and also the absence of any reference to Brandenburg relatives in the 1205 charter."

     BIRTH     1128
     DEATH     8 Jul 1184 (aged 55–56)
     Otto I was the second Margrave of Brandenburg. Otto I was the eldest son of Albert I ("Albert the Bear"), who founded the Margraviate of Brandenburg in 1157, and his wife Sophie of Winzenburg. He had three sisters and six brothers, the best known of whom were Prince-Archbishop Siegfried of Bremen, and Count Bernhard of Anhalt, later Duke of Saxony. Around 1148, Otto married Judith of the Piast dynasty, sister of the Dukes of Poland Boleslaw IV and Mieszko III. Arrangements for the marriage were agreed upon during the Wendic Crusade (one of the Northern Crusades) in a meeting of January 6, 1148, in which Archbishop Friedrich of Wettin participated. After Judith's death in 1175, Otto married Ada of Holland in 1176, daughter of Floris III, Count of Holland and Ada of Huntingdon. Otto had two sons from the first marriage, Otto II and Heinrich, and a third son from the second marriage, Albert. Otto II became his successor as Margrave of Brandenburg at Otto I's death in 1184
Heinrich became Count of Gardelegen. Albert II became Margrave of Brandenburg after the death of his brother Otto II in 1205. Otto was buried in the Lehnin Abbey, which he had helped build.

; Per Med Lands:
     "ADA (-after 1205). The Chronologia Johannes de Beke names (in order) "Theodricum succedentem comitem Hollandie, Wilhelmum comitem Orientalis Frisie, Florencium prepositum Traiecetensis ecclesie, Robertum presidium Kenemarie, Beatricem, Elizabeth, Adelheydim et Margaretam comitissam Clivie" as the children of Count Floris III & his wife[493]. "Ada…marchionissa de Brandebrug" donated land "in Pole" to Rijnsburg abbey, with the consent of "Wilhelmi comitis et Florentii fratrum meorum et Ade comitisse matris mee et Ade neptis mee", by charter dated 1205[494]. The identity of Ada´s Brandenburg husband is difficult to establish with complete certainty. According to Europäische Stammtafeln[495], he was Otto I Markgraf von Brandenburg. Markgraf Otto I´s second wife is named "Adelheid" in Brandenburg sources ("Otto Brandenburgensis marchio" founded Kloster Arendsee, with the consent of "meis heredibus Ottone, Heinrico, Adelberto filiis meis et uxore mea Adelheide", by charter dated 1184[496]). The similarity between "Ada" and "Adelheid" appears at first sight to establish the connection. However, the chronology is not ideal. It is most likely that "Adelheid" was the mother of Markgraf Otto I´s youngest son Markgraf Albrecht II. Albrecht II was named in the charter dated 1 Jan 1177 quoted above, so was born in the mid-1170s. Albrecht is named in an 1197 document in his own capacity, indicating that he had already reached the age of majority. If Ada of Holland was his mother, she would have been 12 years old at the most when he was born, assuming that she was her parents´ oldest child which appears unlikely: the order of birth of her parents´ daughters as set out in the Chronologia Johannes de Beke, quoted above, suggests that "Adelheydim" was the third daughter. While it is acknowledged that the order of births as recorded in such sources is not consistently reliable, the order in which Count Floris´s sons are named in the Chronologia does appear to correspond to the order of their births. If Ada was her parents´ third daughter, it is unlikely that she was born before [1166/68], also bearing in mind that the birth of the couple´s oldest son Dirk should probably be placed in the 1160s in view of his marriage which is recorded in 1186. This date [1166/68] makes it impossible that Ada was the mother of Markgraf Albrecht II. A second possibility for Ada´s Brandenburg husband is Otto II Markgraf von Brandenburg, stated to be the case by Alfred Riedel who compiled the Codex Diplomaticus Brandenburgensis series in the mid-19th century. In his index volume, he lists "Ada Margräfin v. Brandenburg, Gemahlin Otto´s II, Schwester des Grafen Wilhelm von Holland", although he cites no primary source which confirms that this statement is correct[497]. This possibility was also discussed by Hermann Krabbo in the early 20th century[498]. All problems of chronology would be resolved if Otto II was Ada´s husband. In addition, the timing of her 1205 donation to Rijnsberg abbey would have followed her husband´s death. It would also be easier to explain her return to Holland (why would she have gone back if Markgraf Albrecht II had been her son?) and also the absence of any reference to Brandenburg relatives in the 1205 charter. References to the wife of Markgraf Otto II are found in the Cronica Principum Saxonie which records that "Otto secundus" had "uxorem cum magna sibi in Werda gloria presentatam"[499], and Pulchawa´s Böhmischer Chronik which states that "Otto secundus, filius primi Ottonis" married "uxorem…sibi traditam cum magna gloria in Verdn"[500]. Both sources say that she was childless. She is also referred to in three charters, the first in which Pope Innocent III summoned Otto II to treat his wife with love, the second dealing with an attempt to murder Ada, the third Otto´s participation in a crusade hoping that God will favour him with the birth of an heir[501].

; Per Genealogics:
     "Otto I, Markgraf von Brandenburg, was born about 21 June 1126, the eldest son of Albrecht 'the Bear', Herzog von Sachsen, and Sophia von Winzenburg. He had three sisters and six brothers, the best known of whom was Prince-Archbishop Siegfried of Bremen, and Bernhard III, count of Anhalt, later duke of Saxony.
     "On 6 January 1147 Otto married Judyta of Poland, the divorced wife of Laszlo II, king of Hungary, and daughter of Boleslaw III Krzywousty, king of Poland, and Salome von Berg-Schelklingen, and sister of the dukes of Poland Boleslaw IV and Mieszko III, and Kazimierz II 'the Just', duke of Sandomierz, Kraków and Masovia. Arrangements for the marriage were agreed upon during the Wendish Crusade (one of the Northern Crusades) in a meeting of 6 January 1148, in which Archbishop Friedrich of Wettin participated with Otto and the two dukes of Poland. Of their three sons only Albrecht would have progeny. After Judyta's death in 1174, in 1176 Otto married Ada van Holland, daughter of Floris III, Graaf van Holland, and Aleida of Scotland. The marriage did not result in progeny.
     "Otto governed from 1144 alongside his father Albrecht. He did not officially take the title Margrave of Brandenburg until his father's death in 1170, but as early as 1144 he is mentioned by that title along with Albrecht in a royal document, although Albrecht himself did not claim it until 1157. The father and son together shaped the House of Ascania's policy over several decades, together participating in meetings and decisions, and they are both frequently mentioned in documents of the period. The pair were accompanied and supported in many cases by Otto's brothers, in particular the second-eldest, Hermann. Otto outlived his father, who lived to the very old age of 70, by only 14 years.
     "The margraviate of Brandenburg, which Otto finally took over from his father in 1170, did not at the time correspond to the later territory of Brandenburg. The old margraviate was essentially only the eastern portion of Havelland and the Zauche. In the following 150 years under the Ascanians, it would expand to include many more regions, but during Otto's years as margrave, his main goal was to stabilise and secure the margraviate by intensifying settlement in the regions he controlled.
     "In 1180 Otto founded the Lehnin Abbey in Zauche as the margraviate's first monastery, in which he would be buried four years later when he died on 7 March 1184.
     "The Cistercian monastery became the house monastery and burial ground of the house of Ascania, and later also of the house of Hohenzollern. The first monks took up residence in 1183, coming from the Sittichenbach Abbey; construction of the church and cloisters began around 1190. The abbey quickly grew in wealth and strengthened the position of the Ascanians both by its great economic means and by the missionary work of its monks to the Slavs. By the time the abbey was secularised in 1542, it owned _inter alia_ 39 villages and the city of Werder."3

     "OTTO von Brandenburg, son of ALBRECHT "der Bär" Markgraf von Brandenburg [Ballenstedt] & his wife Sophie von Winzenburg ([1126/28]-7 Mar 1184, bur Kloster Lehnin). The Cronica Principum Saxonie names (in order) "Ottonem, Bernardum ducem Saxonie, Sifridum episcopum Brandenburgensem, postea archiepiscopum Bremensem et Hadewigem [uxor] Otto marchio Misenensis" as children of "Albertus Ursus"[122]. He was co-ruler with his father in 1144. Rudolf Bishop of Halberstadt confirmed an exchange between Hillersleben and Walbeck by charter dated 11 Apr 1145, which names "Adelbertus marchio et Otto filius eius" among the representatives of Hillersleben[123]. "Adelbertus…marchio Brandenburgensis" donated property to the convent at Magdeburg, with the consent of "filiorum meorum Heinrici canonici sancti Mauritii in Magdaburg, Ottonis marchionis, Hermanni, Adelberti, Theoderici et Bernhardi comitum", by charter dated [end May/early Jun] 1151[124]. "Adelbertus, Brandenburgensis Marchio, et Otto Marchio, filius meus" donated property to Kloster Leitzlau, for the repose of "mee coniugis Sophie", by charter dated 1162[125]. "Alberto Brandenburgensi marchione, Ottone filio eius…Hermanno comite de Horlemunde filio eius, Theoderico comite de Werben filio eius, Alberto comite de Balstede filio eius, Bernardo comite de Anehalt filio eius…" witnessed the charter dated 1170 under which "Cazimerus…Pomeranorum princeps" donated property to the church of Havelberg, with the consent of "fratre nostro Boguzlao"[126]. He succeeded his father in 1170 as OTTO I Markgraf von Brandenburg. "Otto Brandenburgensis marchio" donated property to the bishopric of Havelberg, for the souls of "…Judithe…nostre conjugis", by charter dated 1170[127]. "Otto…Brandenburgensis marchio et Judita uxor mea, filiique nostri Otto maior et Henricus minor" granted customs privileges to the town of Brandenburg by charter dated 1170[128]. "Otto…Brandenburgensis marchio" donated churches "in villa Cechowe" to the bishop of Brandenburg by charter dated 28 Dec 1170, witnessed by "Juditha marchionissa, Otto et Heirnicus filii eius…"[129]. The Cronica Principum Saxonie records that "Otto primus [filius Alberti Ursi]" founded "cenobium Leninense ordinis Cisterciensis", where he was buried, in 1180, and in 1184 "Arnesse claustrum dominarum ordinis Benedicti"[130]. "Otto Brandenburgensis marchio" founded Kloster Arendsee, with the consent of "meis heredibus Ottone, Heinrico, Adelberto filiis meis et uxore mea Adelheide", by charter dated 1184[131]. An undated memorial of the foundation of Kloster Arendsee recalls "Ottonis Marchionis et Alheydis uxoris eius" as founders of the church, confirmed by "Ottonis, Heynrici et Adelberti filiorum suorum"[132]. Pulchawa´s Böhmischer Chronik records that "Otto filius Alberti" died in 1184 and was buried "in Leninensi monasterio"[133].
     "m firstly (6 Jan 1148) as her second husband, JUDYTA of Poland, divorced wife of LÁSZLÓ of Hungary [later LÁSZLÓ II King of Hungary], daughter of BOLES?AW III "Krzywousty/Wrymouth" Prince of Poland & his second wife Salome von Berg-Schelklingen ([1133]-8 Jul [1171/75], bur Brandenburg Cathedral). The Annales Polanorum name "[filiam] Iuditham" in addition to naming the six sons of Prince Boles?aw[134]. The Annales Cracovienses Compilati record that "Boleslaus dat filiam suam regi Ungarie" in 1136, but does not name her[135]. She is shown as King László's possible wife in Europäische Stammtafeln which also names her Judyta[136], but the source on which this is based has not been identified. "Otto…Brandenburgensis marchio et Judita uxor mea, filiique nostri Otto maior et Henricus minor" granted customs privileges to the town of Brandenburg by charter dated 1170[137]. "Otto…Brandenburgensis marchio" donated churches "in villa Cechowe" to the bishop of Brandenburg by charter dated 28 Dec 1170, witnessed by "Juditha marchionissa, Otto et Heirnicus filii eius…"[138]. The Regesta Historia Brandenburgensis records the death "VIII Id Jul" of "Juditha marchionissa gemma Polonorum"[139]. An undated charter, dated to [1190], refers to rights previously granted by "marchio Otto Brand." for the soul of "uxoris sue Juditte marchionisse"[140].
     "m secondly ([1171/75]) ADELHEID, daughter of ---. A charter of Markgraf Otto I dated 1 Jan 1177 names "Adelheida conjugis mea et…heredibus meis Ottone et Heinrico et Adelberto"[141]. "Otto Brandenburgensis marchio" founded Kloster Arendsee, with the consent of "meis heredibus Ottone, Heinrico, Adelberto filiis meis et uxore mea Adelheide", by charter dated 1184[142]. An undated memorial of the foundation of Kloster Arendsee recalls "Ottonis Marchionis et Alheydis uxoris eius" as founders of the church[143]. According to Europäische Stammtafeln[144], she was Ada of Holland, daughter of Floris III Count of Holland & his wife Ada of Scotland. Ada´s marriage into the Brandenburg family is confirmed by the charter dated 1205 under which "Ada…marchionissa de Brandebrug" donated land "in Pole" to Rijnsburg abbey, with the consent of "Wilhelmi comitis et Florentii fratrum meorum et Ade comitisse matris mee et Ade neptis mee"[145]. The similarity between "Ada" and "Adelheid" appears at first sight to establish the connection. However, the chronology is not ideal. It is most likely that "Adelheid" was the mother of Markgraf Otto I´s youngest son Markgraf Albrecht II, as discussed more fully below. Albrecht II was named in the charter dated 1 Jan 1177 quoted above, so was born in the mid-1170s.

This suggests that "Adelheydim" was the third daughter. While it is acknowledged that the order of births as recorded in such sources is not consistently reliable, the order in which Count Floris´s sons are named in the Chronologia does appear to correspond to the order of their births.

In addition, the timing of Ada´s 1205 donation to Rijnsberg abbey would have followed her husband´s death. It would also be easier to explain Ada´s return to Holland (why would she have gone back if Markgraf Albrecht II had been her son?) and also the absence of any reference to Brandenburg relatives in the 1205 charter."

     "HERMANN von Thüringen, son of LUDWIG II "der Eiserne" Landgraf of Thuringia & his wife Judith [Jutta] von Staufen (-Burg Friedenstein bei Gotha 25 Apr 1217, bur Schloß Friedenstein). The Chronicle of Alberic de Trois-Fontaines in 1193 names "Hermannum lantgravium" as son of "lantgravie Thuringie Ludovico" & his wife[210]. Pfalzgraf of Saxony 1180. He succeeded his brother in 1190 as HERMANN I Landgraf of Thuringia. "Heremannus…lantgravius Thuringie et palatinus comes Saxonie" confirmed a donation to Kloster Kaufungen made by "Helmwicus in Rorenvort et fratres sui ministeriales nostri" by charter dated 1199, witnessed by "comes Fridericus frater lantgravii, comes Wilkerus, comes Heinricus de Cigenhagen…"[211]. "Hermannus…lantgravius et Saxonie comes palatinus" confirmed the donation by "familia nostra matrona quedam de Vargla, Hedewiga, vidua Cunimundi" to Kloster Ichtershausen by charter dated 15 Nov 1199[212]. The Historia Brevis Principum Thuringiæ records that "Hermanno fratri [Ludewici tertii]" died in Gotha and was buried at Eisenach[213]. The Chronicle of Alberic de Trois-Fontaines records the death in 1218 of "lantgravius Toringie et Hermannus pater Ludovici lantgravii"[214]. The necrology of Thuringia records the death "VII Kal Mai" of "Hermannus lantgravius Thuringie"[215].
     "m firstly ([1182]) as her second husband, SOPHIE, widow of HEINRICH Graf von Wettin, daughter of --- (-1189, bur Reinhardsbrunn). The Genealogica Wettinensis names "Sophiam filiam cuiusdam nobilis de Austria" as wife of "Heinricus comes de Witin", specifying that she married secondly "Hermannus tunc comes palatinus Saxonie, postmodem etiam comes provincialis Thuringie"[216]. The Cronica Reinhardsbrunnensis records the death in 1189 of "Sophie palatina uxor Hermanni lantgravii" and her burial at Reinhardsbrunn[217], the word "palatina" maybe providing a potential clue to her origin.
     "m secondly (1196) SOPHIE von Bayern, daughter of OTTO I Duke of Bavaria [Wittelsbach] & his wife Agnes van Looz (-10 Jul 1238, bur Eisenack St Katharina Kloster). The Genealogia Ottonis II Ducis Bavariæ names "Sophiam" as first of the five daughters of "Otto dictus de Schiren…dux Bawarie", although the order appears inaccurate in view of Sophie's marriage date, and her husband "Hermannus langravius Thuringie"[218]. "Heinricus Thur. lantgravius et Saxonie comes palat." confirmed a donation by charter dated 16 May 1228, with the consent of "matris nostre Sophie, uxoris nostre Elisabeth, fratris nostri Cunradi" and names "frater noster beate memorie Ludewicus lantgravius"[219]. “Henricus...Landgravius Thuringiæ et Saxoniæ comes palatinus...manibus matris nostæ et Conradi fratris nostri” donated property “in Ludirsburnin” to Reinhardsbrunn, for the salvation of “contectalis nostræ Elisabeth” on the day of her burial, by charter dated 1231[220]. The Annales Erphordenses record the death "1238 VI Id Iul" of "Sophia mater Heinrico lantgravii" and her burial at Eisenach "in ecclesia beate Catharine"[221]. The necrology of Thuringia records the death "VI Id Jul" of "Sophia lantgravia"[222]."

     "Charting their respective ancestries, I find that three of Count Friedrich II's great-grandparents are unknown, which makes it difficult at best to be certain how the two men were related. Regardless, I find that one of Count Friedrich's great-grandparents, Bernard II, Count of Hövel, was in fact uncle to the ancestral line of Duke Heinrich. If this is the kinship intended, the two men were related in the 4th and 7th degrees of kindred, or if you prefer third cousins thrice removed, by virtue of common descent from Gerbege (or Guepa) of Burgundy, died 1018/9, but by different husbands, as charted below.

In 1120 or 1121 he succeeded his father as Pfalzgraf von Sachsen, and in 1123-1124 he became Pfalzgraf von Sommerschenburg. He was also governor of Gandersheim, Quedlinburg (in 1150) and Schöningen. With his wife Liutgard von Stade, daughter of Graf Rudolf I von Stade and Richardis, daughter of Hermann, Burggraf von Magdeburg, he had a son and two daughters. His son Adalbert would succeed him, marry but not have progeny. Of his two daughters, Adelheid became abbess of Gandersheim and Quedlinburg, and Sophie would have progeny, marrying Hermann I, Landgraf von Thüringen. Friedrich and Liutgard were divorced in 1142 on grounds of consanguinity.
     "Friedrich had good relations with the bishopric of Halberstadt, and in 1132 he achieved the restoration of Bishop Otto. In 1125 he was involved in the election of Lothar von Supplinburg, Herzog von Sachsen, as King of the Germans, and he ranked next to Albrecht 'the Bear', Herzog von Sachsen, as the most prominent prince at the imperial court. The denomination 'Pfalzgraf von Sommerschenburg' he mainly used made clear the final change of the rank of Count Palatine into the status of a territorial statehood; this position of Count Palatine seems to a great extent to have been stripped of its original function of an imperial representative.
     "In 1138 Friedrich opposed the Hohenstaufen and fought their supporter Albrecht 'the Bear', though this was also over clashes between their territorial interests. In 1139 he looted Bremen and destroyed Anhalt. He submitted to the Hohenstaufen but was banished in 1153/54 over his many disputes with abbeys, particularly Corvey, though he later submitted again to the Church. He again allied himself with the archbishops of Magdeburg and Albrecht 'the Bear' over the increasing power of Heinrich 'the Lion', Herzog von Sachsen, whom he had accompanied in 1147 on the Wendish Crusade in Saxony, but who became a threat to Friedrich's scattered estates in the Harz mountains. Friedrich, who represented the climax and turning point in the power and standing of the Saxon Count Palatines, finally withdrew from the politics of his time. Founder of the Abbey of Marienthal, he died in 1162 and was buried there."1 EDV-26. Friedrich II von Sommerschenburg Pfalzgraf von Sachsen, Pfalzgraf von Sommerschenburg was also known as Friedrich II Ct Palatine of Saxony, Count von Sommerschenburg.9,10,2

; Per Genealogics:
     “Bernhard III was born about 1140, the youngest of seven sons of Albrecht 'the Bear', Herzog von Sachsen, and Sophia von Winzenburg. He was a member of the House of Ascania and, by paternal inheritance, Graf von Anhalt und Ballenstedt and lord of Bernburg. From 1180 he was also Herzog von Sachsen as Bernhard III.
     “In 1157 Bernhard was present together with his father and brothers at the funeral of Konrad I 'der Grosse', Markgraf von Meissen, a member of the house of Wettin. In 1159 Bernhard, with his brother Otto, followed Emperor Friedrich I Barbarossa in his campaign in Italy. After the death of his father in 1170, Bernhard inherited the states of Anhalt and the district of Ascaria (Aschersleben) as well as the former Gau Serimunt between Saalde, Mulde and the Elbe.
     “According to some sources, Bernhard married three times. There is doubt about the first two of the wives attributed to him. The first was recorded as Brigitte (Jutta), daughter of Knud III Magnusson, king of Jylland, joint king of Denmark. His second wife was recorded as Sophia, daughter of Ludwig II 'der Eiserne', Landgraf von Thüringen. His third, and according to some sources only wife was Judith of Poland, daughter of Mieszko III, duke of Poland, and Elisabeth of Hungary. He had five children of whom two sons, Heinrich and Albrecht, would have progeny.
     “After the death of his brother Albrecht in 1172 without male issue, Bernhard also inherited his county of Ballenstedt. In the same year he solicited Emperor Friedrich Barbarossa in the Reichstag of Goslar for the possession of Plötzkau, which passed to him in 1173. The county of Plötzkau was contested by Heinrich 'the Lion', Herzog von Sachen, and in the ensuing war Heinrich destroyed Aschersleben and Gröningen, and almost destroyed Halberstadt. Nevertheless Bernhard was able to assert his dominion over Plötzkau.
     “When Heinrich 'the Lion' was outlawed by the emperor in 1180, the Reichstag also took under its control his fiefs (Würzburg and the duchies of Bavaria and Saxony). Thereupon Bernhard, on 13 April 1180 in Gelnhausen, was granted the eastern part of the Welf lands, the archbishopric of Bremen-Hamburg and the duchy of Saxony. However this award was without real value. Previously the duchy had been divided, so that he could only receive the region between Meissen and the mark of Brandenburg as his formal possession. With these he received relatively small landholdings: the towns of Aken and Wittenberg and the burgraviate of Magdeburg. The dignity of Duke of Saxony was only an empty title. The rich lands of Engern and Westphalia, as well as the ducal rights, were conferred on the archbishop of Cologne. The counts of Holstein were released from their homage to the dukes of Saxony, the county of Stade was taken by the archbishop of Bremen, Lübeck became an imperial city, the palatinate of Saxony was bestowed on Graf Hermann von Thüringen and the Saxon bishops took back their fiefs. Nevertheless Bernhard was forced to support the emperor in his renewed war against Heinrich 'the Lion' in 1181. Despite his defeat, Heinrich was able to save his allodial title from which the duchy of Brunswick was later formed.
     “In Nordalbingen and the areas between the Elbe and the Baltic Sea, the vassals soon rebelled against Bernhard and gave their support to Heinrich 'the Lion'. Bernhard attempted to assert his claims, with the support of his brothers, particularly Otto I of Brandenburg and Siegfried, now archbishop of Bremen. At first the vassals of Artlenburg swore an oath of fealty. After them, the counts of Ratzeburg, Danneberg, Luckow and Schwerin also swore. However, the most powerful of these vassals, Graf Adolf von Holstein, did not accept the lordship of Bernhard and became his adversary. Bernhard attempted to subdue him but failed.
     “After Bernhard's defeat, he built Lauenburg (Polabenburg) on the lower Elbe to provide a strongpoint on the right bank of the river. Determined to eliminate the hostility against him in his lands, he imposed high taxes on them. This led to an assault on Lauenburg, which was destroyed in 1182. In 1183 another of his brothers, Dietrich, Graf von Werben, died without surviving male issue. His properties fell mostly to Bernhard.
     “The hostilities now also spread to the Slavic countries. Heinrich Burwin I, Fürst von Mecklenburg, the son of Przybyslaw, prince of the Obotrites, was like his father a supporter of Heinrich 'the Lion'; moreover, he was also the husband of Heinrich's natural daughter Mechtild von Sachsen, and remained one of Bernhard's opponents. His cousin Niklot, prince of the Slavs and Rostock, to whom Heinrich 'the Lion' had granted Malchow in 1164, lost part of it to Bernhard. Burwin allied with Bogislaw I, Herzog von Pommern-Stettin, and Niklot allied with Jaromir, Fürst von Rügen, who was a faithful vassal of Denmark. However shortly after, Bogislaw had to punish Burwin because of his refusal to do homage, for which his lands between the Elbe and Oder rivers were split between the empire and Denmark. Burwin was captured by King Knut and was forced, like Niklot, to accept his lands from the king in fief. After incursions by the Danes in Pomerania in 1184 and 1185, Bogislaw shared the same fate.
     “Following the success of the Danes, in 1184 the emperor pressed for a compromise between Bernhard and his vassal, Graf Adolf von Holstein. Adolf was to keep the disputed regions; however he had to pay 700 marks for them to Bernhard and give the oath of fealty he had previously refused. Counts Bernhard of Ratzeburg and Gunzelin of Schwerin were also obliged to make payments. Lauenburg was to be rebuilt.
     “However, after the return of Heinrich 'the Lion' in 1188, hostilities were resumed with Bernhard, who finally lost the town of Bardowick in Lüneburg.
     “As duke of Saxony, Bernhard also became marshal of the Holy Roman Empire. He could hold this important post for the first time in 1190 at the coronation of Emperor Heinrich VI; however he broke his good relations with the emperor by his opposition to the proposal to make the German crown hereditary to the House of Hohenstaufen. In 1198 he favoured Philipp von Hohenstaufen as German king. However Philipp was killed on 21 June 1208 by Otto von Wittelsbach at Bamberg. Thereupon the choice of the emperor was determined in Halberstadt and (with Bernhard's vote counted) Otto von Braunschweig (son of Heinrich 'the Lion') was elected on 22 September, and he was crowned immediately in Frankfurt as Emperor Otto IV.
     “Following the acquisition of the estates in Saxony, Bernhard moved his residence and court to Wittenberg, which continued as a residence of the House of Ascania until 1422. On his death on 2 February 1212 aged seventy-two, he was buried beside his father Albrecht and several of his brothers in the church of the Benedictine monastery in Ballenstedt.”.2

; Per Genealogics:
     "Albrecht 'the Bear' was born about 1100, son of Otto, Graf von Ballenstedt and Eilica von Sachsen. In 1123 he became Graf von Ballenstedt on the death of his father. About 1125 Albrecht married Sophia von Winzenburg, daughter of Hermann I, Graf von Windberg, Rastelberg, Winzenburg, and Hedwig von Krain und Istrien. They had five sons and two daughters who would have progeny. In 1142 after his mother's death he received the central German possessions of the Billung dynasty, but he was unsuccessful in his attempts to win the Saxon duchy.
     "His greatest achievement was in the East; in return for his services to the Holy Roman Emperor Lothar II von Supplinburg in Italy, he received the North Mark, east of the junction of the Elbe and Havel rivers. He spent three years campaigning against the Wenden, and by an arrangement made with Pribislav-Heinrich, the Christian prince of the Slav Hevelli tribe who was the godfather of his eldest son Otto I, he obtained the Hervelli region from Brandenburg an der Havel to Spandau after the prince's death in 1150.
     "Taking the title Markgraf von Brandenburg, Albrecht pressed the war against the Wenden, extended the area of his mark and increased the population and its prosperity by introducing Friesian and Saxon settlers. Albrecht had the help of the Premonstratensian and Cistercian religious orders in clearing the forests and draining the swamps. He coupled colonisation with missionary work among the Slavs, and revived the bishoprics of Havelberg and Brandenburg.
     "There is evidence that Emperor Lothar's successor, Friedrich I Barbarossa, made Albrecht high chamberlain of the empire, an office that later gave the margraves of Brandenburg the rights of an elector. Albrecht died on 18 November 1170, and was succeeded by his son Otto I."2 He was Gf von Ballenstedt, Herr der Mark Lausitz, Mkgf von Stade, Gf von Aschersleben.1

The Annalista Saxo names "Adelbertum marchionem et filiam Adelheidem" as children of "Ottoni comiti de Ballenstidi" and his wife Eilika[72]. He succeeded his father in 1123 as Graf von Ballenstedt. Lothar von Süpplingenburg Duke of Saxony appointed him Herr der Mark Lausitz and Markgraf von Sachsen in 1123, in usurpation of the rights of Emperor Heinrich V who had granted the fief to Wiprecht Graf von Groitsch[73]. "Palatinus comes Willelmus, Marchio Adelbertus, comes Herimannus et frater eius Cunradus…" witnessed the charter dated 15 Jul 1128 under which Adalbert Archbishop of Mainz confirmed an exchange of property between "heredes comites Rodulfi…marchionis…prefati comitis filius Rodulfus…matre eius religiosa vidua Richarde…et fratre predicti pueri Udone iam milite facto et uxorato…" and the provost of Jechenburg[74]. Graf der Nordmark 1128. He was temporarily deprived of his titles, but rehabilated, by the emperor in 1133. He strongly opposed the Welf family in support of Konrad III King of Germany, who invested him as ALBRECHT Duke of Saxony in 1138 after refusing to enfeoff Heinrich "der Stolze" Duke of Bavaria [Welf] with the duchy[75]. After the death of Duke Heinrich, Albrecht hastened to Bremen where on 1 Nov 1139 he attempted to obtain recognition as duke of Saxony but was driven out of the town[76]. He was finally obliged to relinquish his claim to Saxony in 1142, as part of the compromise reached between the Welf family and King Konrad III, and returned to the Nordmark[77]. Pribislav-Heinrich Prince of the Hevelli appointed Albrecht his heir in Brandenburg, and he succeeded in 1140 as ALBRECHT "der Bär" Markgraf von Brandenburg, although he was obliged to defend the territory against Jaxa Prince of Köpenick in 1157[78]. Markgraf von Stade 1143. "Adelbertus…marchio Brandenburgensis" donated property to the convent at Magdeburg, with the consent of "filiorum meorum Heinrici canonici sancti Mauritii in Magdaburg, Ottonis marchionis, Hermanni, Adelberti, Theoderici et Bernhardi comitum", by charter dated [end May/early Jun] 1151[79]. After a lengthy dispute with Heinrich "der Löwe" Welf Duke of Saxony over the inheritance of the counts of Plötzkau and Hermann von Winzenburg, Friedrich I "Barbarossa" King of Germany assigned the Plötzkauer inheritance to Markgraf Albrecht and the Winzenburger inheritance to Duke Heinrich at the diet of Würzburg in Oct 1153[80]. The document dated 17 Sep 1156 which established the duchy of Austria is witnessed by "…marchio Adelbertus de Staden…"[81]. Graf von Aschersleben 1156: "Adelbertus…comes Asscherslovensis" confirmed a donation to Kloster Ilsenburg by "domino Alberto et fratre suo Tiederico de Crozuch" by charter dated 28 Dec 1156[82]. In 1166, he joined the alliance of Saxon princes against Duke Heinrich, attacking the fortress of Althaldensleben 20 Dec 1166 with Ludwig II Landgraf of Thuringia and Wichmann Bishop of Magdeburg[83]. Markgraf Albrecht was one of the signatories of the alliance of Magdeburg 12 Jul 1167, which formalised the opposition to Duke Heinrich[84].

; Per Genealogics:
     "Henryk VI von Schlesien, Herzog von Breslau, known as 'the Good', was born on 18 March 1294, the second son of Henryk V von Schlesien, Herzog von Liegnitz, and Elisabeth von Kalisch. His father died in 1296, when he was only two. Because he and his brothers Boleslaw III and Wladyslaw (who was born posthumously) were minors, the regency of their lands were taken by their mother and their paternal uncle Bolko I von Schlesien, Herzog von Jauer und Schweidnitz. In 1301-02 the official guardianship of Henryk V's sons was taken by Henryk von Würben, bishop of Wroclaw, and the authority over the duchy of Wroclaw-Legnica (Breslau-Liegnitz) was finally taken personally by Wenceslas II, king of Bohemia and Poland, who brought Boleslaw III to his court in Prague. It is not known what happened with Henryk during this time.
     "The first reference to Henryk was in 1310, when he married the several years older Anna of Austria, widow of Hermann, Markgraf von Brandenburg, and daughter of Albrecht I, emperor-elect and duke of Austria, and Elisabeth von Tirol. Of their three daughters, Elisabeth and Euphemia would have progeny.
     "In 1311, as a result of pressure from the nobility of both Wroclaw and Legnica (frustrated with the neglectful rule of Henryk's brother Boleslaw III), the duchy was divided into three parts: Wroclaw (Breslau), Legnica (Liegnitz) and Brzeg (Brieg). The poorest and least important was Brzeg. The treaty setting out the division stipulated that the brother who took this territory would receive from the other two a payment of 50,000 fines. As the oldest, Boleslaw III was able to choose first; given his financial problems he unexpectedly took Brzeg and the monetary compensation, and Henryk was able to take Wroclaw. He had no problems paying the debt to his older brother (thanks to the help of the rich Wroclaw patricians) and was able to retain his territory. The youngest brother Wladyslaw, who received Legnica, was not able to pay his part of the debt, and for this he was expelled from his land by Boleslaw III.
     "Between 1312 and 1317 conflict erupted between Boleslaw III and the dukes of Glogów. Henryk VI and his brother entered into an alliance with the ruler of Lesser Poland, Wladislaw Lokietek (the future king of Poland), and with their combined forces they began a campaign against the sons of Henryk I-III von Schlesien, duke Glogowski, under the pretext of punishing them for the fact that their late father was directly responsible for the premature death of Henryk V, the father of Henryk VI and Boleslaw III. In the end Wladislaw I Lokietek managed to take almost all of Greater Poland, but his allies only captured the towns of Uraz (given to Henryk VI) and Wolów and Lubiaz (given to Boleslaw III).
     "In 1314 Henryk supported his brother-in-law Friedrich II 'der Schöne' of Austria in the battle for the throne of Germany. The war with Glogów was begun again in 1321. This time, however, Henryk was not convinced of the rightness of his cause, and in 1322 he signed a separate peace with the Glogów dukes, receiving Smogorzew in compensation. The agreement was reinforced with the marriage of Henryk's eldest daughter Elisabeth with Konrad I, Herzog von Schlesien in Öls (Olesnica).
     "By that time the relations between Henryk and his older brother Boleslaw III had seriously deteriorated. The reasons were Henryk's refusal to support the more aggressive politics of his brother (evidenced by Henryk's signing of a peace with Konrad I, Herzog von Schlesien in Öls, and his brothers) and Boleslaw III's claims to wealthy Wroclaw. Boleslaw even put forward an official proposal to exchange his territory of Legnica for Wroclaw. Not surprisingly, Henryk refused this unfavourable transaction. War between the brothers was imminent. Henryk re-established contact with Wladislaw I Lokietek (now king of Poland), promising him homage and offered to make Wladislaw his heir in exchange for assistance. However, fearing a direct confrontation with the kingdom of Bohemia, Wladislaw I declined the offer. Henryk then asked for help from Emperor Ludwig IV 'der Bayer'. On 20 April 1324 he declared himself a vassal of the empire; in return, Henryk gained the right for his daughters to succeed to his lands, and in consequence, the disinheritance of Boleslaw III and his descendants. These decisions provoked Boleslaw to armed attempts to settle the dispute, but he finally failed, unable to breach the formidable walls of Wroclaw.
     "However, Henryk's homage to the Holy Roman Empire did not secure his lands, as the conflict with Boleslaw III continued. In response, un 1325 Henryk arranged the marriage of his second daughter Euphemia with Boleslaw von Schlesien, Herzog von Falkenberg (Niemodlin) and entered into an alliance with the Teutonic Knights.
     "Eventually, under pressure of the Wroclaw nobility, Henryk opted for an alliance with Johann 'the Blind' of Luxembourg, king of Bohemia. The signing of the agreement took place in Wroclaw on 6 April 1327. Under its terms, Wroclaw remained independent, but after the death of Henryk it would be annexed to the Bohemian Crown. In return for these concessions, Henryk obtained from the king the county of Glatz during his lifetime and a large pension.
     "In his internal policies, Henryk was influenced by the powerful Wroclaw nobles, who received many privileges from him. His relations with the Church were tense, and from 1319 to 1321 he was excommunicated.
     "Henryk died on 24 November 1335, and was buried in the chapel of St. Hedwig in Wroclaw."2 Heinrich VI 'the Good' (?) von Schliesien, Herzog von Breslau was also known as Henryk VI 'the Good' von Schlesien Herzog von Breslau.3,2
