Heinrich I von Sponheim Graf von Sponheim-Starkenburg1

M, #93484, b. between 1235 and 1240, d. 1 August 1289
FatherJohann I von Sponheim2,3 b. b 1206, d. a 22 Nov 1266
MotherAdelheid von der Mark4
Last Edited5 Mar 2020
     Heinrich I von Sponheim Graf von Sponheim-Starkenburg was born between 1235 and 1240.5 He married Blancheflor von Jülich, daughter of Wilhelm IV (?) Graf von Julich and Richardis (?) van Gelre, in 1265.1,6,5
Heinrich I von Sponheim Graf von Sponheim-Starkenburg died on 1 August 1289.1,5
     ; Per Genealogics:
     :Heinrich I, Graf von Sponheim in Starkenburg, was born between 1235 and 1240, the son of Johann I, Graf von Sayn und Starkenburg, and Adelheid von der Mark. He ruled the county of Sponheim from 1266 to his death.
     :In 1265 Heinrich married Blancheflor von Jülich, daughter of Wilhelm IV, Graf von Jülich, and Richardis van Gelre. They had three, possibly four sons, of whom Johann II would succeed his father and continue the line, and the other sons had Church careers.
     :Heinrich's father, who had inherited the county of Sayn, was still living when his sons agreed to a division. Heinrich inherited his father's share of Sponheim with Winningen on the Moselle from the Sayn inheritance, and after his father's death an annuity of 50 Cologne marks.
     :In 1267 Heinrich became embroiled in a bitter feud with the city of Trier and took several Trier citizens into captivity. For this the administrators of Trier arrested Nikolaus, steward of the abbey of Hunolstein, holding him responsible. When they became convinced of his innocence they let him go, but Nikolaus, his brother Johannes and their cousin Hugo, and all knights and stewards of Hunolstein, had to pledge not to avenge the imprisonment of Nikolaus. This oath was sworn on 6 April 1267. On 21 August the same year Nikolaus was guarantor for a ransom of 200 marks for three henchmen of Heinrich's held captive by the count of Bar. It is believed that Heinrich was very quarrelsome at the beginning of his rule.
     :On 25 December 1274 Rudolf I von Habsburg, the emperor-elect, mortgaged to Heinrich the Kröver Reich (a royal estate on the Moselle comprising a remnant of the former great kingdom of the Carolingians and the emperors who followed them), and he later enfeoffed Heinrich with it. Heinrich increased his holdings in 1269 when he reacquired extensive Sponheim fiefs from Ritter Wilhelm von Schwarzenberg. In 1278 Heinrich allied with his cousin Johann I von Sponheim zu Kreuznach in a feud against Archbishop Werner of Mainz.
     :On 20 April 1287 Heinrich also received from King Rudolf the burgraviate of Kaiserswerth on the Lower Rhine, a position which Heinrich and his successors held until June 1291, when the king pledged Kaiserswerth to his niece Katharina von Ochsenstein as her dowry. Katharina was Heinrich's daughter-in-law, the second wife of his son Johann II, and so this position remained with the Sponheim family until 39 May 1293, when the terms for the release of Kaiserswerth were negotiated between the emperor-elect Adolf, Graf von Nassau, Archbishop Siegfried of Cologne, and Heinrich's son Johann II. As compensation for the loss of this Rhenish position and associated toll rights, the counts of Sponheim accepted the sum of 6,000 marks.
     :Heinrich died on 1 August 1289."5

     "Adolf was born about 1220, the eldest son of Heinrich IV, duke of Limburg, and Irmengard von Berg, heiress of Berg. He was co-ruler of the county of Berg from an early age, and from 1246 he ruled it alone, while his younger brother Walram V was duke of Limburg. In 1234 Adolf participated in the Crusade against the Stedingers.
     "About 1240 Adolf married Margarete von Hochstaden, daughter of Lothar I, Graf von Hochstaden, and Mechtild von Vianden, and sister of the archbishop of Cologne, Konrad von Hochstaden. Of their four children, Heinrich and Irmgard would have progeny.
     "From 1246 Adolf joined his brother-in-law Archbishop Konrad, and became a supporter of Heinrich Raspe, Landgraf von Thüringen, chosen as emperor-elect in 1246, against the deposed Emperor Friedrich II. After Heinrich's death in 1247, Adolf supported Willem II, Graaf van Holland, the new emperor-elect, from whom in 1248 he received the imperial estates of Rath and Mettman, the imperial rights to Remagen and the investiture in his other Berg possessions.
     "In 1248 Adolf was present when the foundation stone for the Cologne Cathedral was laid by his brother-in-law Archbishop Konrad. In 1255 he and his brother Walram, duke of Limburg, laid the foundation stone of the monastery church in Altenberg. He rebuilt the castle of Bensberg, conquered and destroyed in 1226.

     "He died a prisoner. Engelbert I was the son of Adolf I, Graf von Altena, Graf von der Mark, and Irmgard of Gelre. As his brother Otto, who had been a canon of the cathedral of Liège, had returned to secular life after his father's death, Engelbert had to give him some castles such as Altena and Blankenstein, and their associated lands. The threat of fragmentation of ownership was prevented by Otto's death without issue in 1262. After that Engelbert again ruled the whole county.
     "A short time later Engelbert came into conflict with Archbishop Engelbert II van Valkenburg of Cologne, the successor to Archbishop Konrad von Hochstaden. This led to a series of battles and the troops on each side ravaged the territory of the other. In 1265 the two sides agreed to a peace.
     "Before 1 May 1251 Engelbert married Kunigunde von Blieskastel, daughter of Heinrich, Graf von Blieskastel, and Gräfin Agnes von Sayn. Of their six children, Eberhard I, Richardis, Agnes and Sophie would have progeny. In 1265 Engelbert married his second wife Elisabeth van Valkenburg, daughter of Dirk II van Heinsberg, Heer van Valkenburg, and Bertha de Montjoie; Elisabeth was also a niece of the archbishop of Cologne; their marriage secured the peace between Engelbert and the archbishop. Engelbert and Elisabeth had two daughters of whom Mechtild would have progeny, marrying Floris Berthout, Heer van Mechelen.
     "Conflicts arose again with Cologne under Archbishop Siegfried von Westerburg, the successor to Archbishop Engelbert. Archbishop Siegfried sought to expand his influence on the Rhine and in Westphalia. In 1277 a number of rulers in that area joined an alliance under the leadership of Simon, bishop of Paderborn. Engelbert was also involved in it.
     "In that year Engelbert was attacked while travelling by Hermann von Lon and severely wounded. He died at the castle of Bredevoort on 16 November 1277. His son Eberhard I was Engelbert's successor. He transferred his father's body to the abbey of Cappenberg, where he was buried."3



; Per Wikipedia:
     "Engelbert I, Count of the Mark (died 16 November 1277 at Castle of Bredevoort) was a German nobleman. He was the ruling Count of the Mark from 1249 until his death.
Life
     "He succeeded his father, Adolf I as the ruling count in 1249. His brother Otto, who had been a canon in Liège, returned to the lay state after their father's death and claimed a share of the inheritance. Engelbert ceded the castles at Altena and Blankenstein and the surrounding land to Otto. He was afraid that this might be the first step in the fragmentation of the county. However, Otto died without a male heir in 1262, and his possessions fell back to Engelbert.
     "Early in his reign, a feud broke out between Engelbert II and his namesake, Archbishop Engelbert II of Cologne. They fought a number of battles and their troops devastated each other's territory; in 1265, they made peace. In 1262 Engelbert and William IV, Count of Jülich, came to the assistance of the Teutonic Knights during the Siege of Königsberg.
     "Engelbert I was married twice. His first wife was Kunigunde of Blieskastel. His second wife, Elisabeth of Valkenburg, was a niece of the Archbishop of Cologne. This marriage ensured peace between Cologne and the Mark.
     "In 1274, Archbishop Engelbert II of Cologne died. His successor, Siegfried II of Westerburg tried to expand his influence in Westphalia and the Rheinland. This led to a conflict with the other rulers in the area. In 1277, they formed an alliance, led by Bishop Simon I of Paderborn. Engelbert II of the Mark joined this alliance.
     "Later that year, he was attacked by Herman of Lohn while travelling near Tecklenburg. He was seriously wounded in the attack, and died of his wounds on 16 November 1277, at the Castle of Bredevoort, where he was held captive by Herman. He was buried in Cappenberg Abbey and was succeeded by his son

     "ENGELBERT von der Mark, son of ADOLF Graf von der Mark [Altena] & his second wife Irmgard van Gelre (-Bredevoort 16 Nov 1277, bur Cappenberg). Levoldus’s mid-14th century Chronica Comitum de Marka names “Everhardum, Engelbertum, Gerardum et Ottonem” as the sons of “comes Adulphus” and his wife “sorore comitis Gelrie”, adding in a later passage that Engelbert succeeded his father[1702]. “Adolphus comes de Marcha...cum...filiis nostris Ottone, Engelberto nec non Gerardo” sold property “hac parte Reni que nobis hereditario iure a domino de Crikenbeke attinebant”, for “Mechtildem et filiam eius relictam pie memorie domini Everardi quondam...filii nostri”, by charter dated 3 Mar 1243[1703]. Graf von der Mark. Engelbert Graf von der Mark, son of Adolf, names "fratrem nostrum Ottonem comitem de Althena…uxore nostra Kunegundi" in a charter dated 1250[1704]. “Engelbertus comes de Marca” donated “ecclesiam in Marca cum filia sua in Hammona” to Kloster Cappenberg, with the consent of “fratrum nostrorum comitis de Altena Ottonis et Gerhardi prepositi sancte marie in Traiecto Superiori”, by charter dated 6 Jun 1254[1705]. "Godefridus comes de Arnesberg cum uxore nostra Alheydi et…Engelbertus comes de Marcha cum uxore nostra Cunegundi" donated "patronatus ecclesie de Lussenich" to the Teutonic Knights, for the soul of "quondam comitis Henrici Seynensis", by charter dated Jul 1258[1706]. "Otto de Altena et Engilbertus de Marcha, fratres comites" agreed an exchange with Berta Abbess of Essen by charter dated 23 Oct 1261[1707]. Levoldus’s mid-14th century Chronica Comitum de Marka records that Engelbert was “manburnus [regent?] comitatus de Tekeneborch” after the death of “uxore sua prima Cunegunde” and was proposed for “sede Osnaburgensis ecclesie vacante, in episcopum”[1708]. “Engelbertus comes de Marka” sold property to “Adolphi comitis de Monte”, with the consent of “nostrorum heredum Everhardi nostri filii, Sophie, Agnetis et Richardis”, by charter dated 15 Nov 1265[1709]. “Engelbertus...comes in Marcha” donated “domum in Thudinchusen” to Kloster Cappenberg, with the consent of “domine Elizabet comitisse uxoris nostre et filiorum nostrorum Everhardi et Gerhardi”, by charter dated 1270[1710]. "…Engelbertus de Marka, Godefridus [error for Eberhardus] filius eius…" were among those who declared war against Sifrid Archbishop of Köln by charter dated 8 Apr 1277[1711]. Levoldus’s mid-14th century Chronica Comitum de Marka records the death “circa festum omnium sanctorum” 1277 of “comes Engelbertus...in captivitate”, recording in a later passage that his son Eberhard recovered his father’s body from “castrum Bredenvort” the following year and buried it “in Cappenberch”[1712].
     "m firstly (before 1250) KUNIGUNDE, daughter of --- (-before 1265). Engelbert Graf von der Mark names "fratrem nostrum Ottonem comitem de Althena…uxore nostra Kunegundi" in a charter dated 1250[1713]. There is some doubt about the family origin of Kunigunde. Levoldus’s mid-14th century Chronica Comitum de Marka records that Engelbert was “manburnus [regent?] comitatus de Tekeneborch” after the death of “uxore sua prima Cunegunde”[1714], which suggests that she was related to the Grafen von Tecklenburg. However, under a charter dated Jul 1258, "Godefridus comes de Arnesberg cum uxore nostra Alheydi et…Engelbertus comes de Marcha cum uxore nostra Cunegundi" donated "patronatus ecclesie de Lussenich" to the Teutonic Knights, for the soul of "quondam comitis Henrici Seynensis"[1715]. This latter documents suggests that she was a joint heiress of Heinrich Graf von Sayn, maybe Kunigunde, daughter of Heinrich Graf von Bliescastel & his wife Agnes von Sayn. This parentage is also indicated by the charter dated 2 Sep 1263 under which “Godefridus comes de Arnesberg” agreed an alliance with Engelbert Archbishop of Köln, except respecting his obligations towards “domino Simone Paderbornensis ecclesie episcopo, domino Engelberto comite de Marcha consanguineo meo, genero meo domino Bernhardo seniore de Lippia et Bernardo nato ipsius dominis...genero meo domino Henrico comite de Waltegge et viro nobili Ottone de Ravensberg”[1716]: no other family relationship has been identified between Engelbert [I] Graf von der Mark and Gottfried [III] Graf von Arnsberg, although it is unusual for a relative by marriage to be described as “consanguineus”.
     "m secondly ([1264/65]) ELISABETH van Valkenburg, daughter of DIRK [II] Heer van Valkenburg & his first wife Bertha van Limburg. Levoldus’s mid-14th century Chronica Comitum de Marka records that Engelbert Graf von der Mark married secondly “Elisabeth neptis domini archiepiscopi filia domini de Valkenborch” as part of the peace settlement of the war with Engelbert van Valkenburg Archbishop of Köln[1717]. “Engelbertus...comes in Marcha” donated “domum in Thudinchusen” to Kloster Cappenberg, with the consent of “domine Elizabet comitisse uxoris nostre et filiorum nostrorum Everhardi et Gerhardi”, by charter dated 1270[1718]."

     ; Per Med LANDS:
     "ENGELBERT von der Mark, son of ADOLF Graf von der Mark [Altena] & his second wife Irmgard van Gelre (-Bredevoort 16 Nov 1277, bur Cappenberg). Levoldus’s mid-14th century Chronica Comitum de Marka names “Everhardum, Engelbertum, Gerardum et Ottonem” as the sons of “comes Adulphus” and his wife “sorore comitis Gelrie”, adding in a later passage that Engelbert succeeded his father[1702]. “Adolphus comes de Marcha...cum...filiis nostris Ottone, Engelberto nec non Gerardo” sold property “hac parte Reni que nobis hereditario iure a domino de Crikenbeke attinebant”, for “Mechtildem et filiam eius relictam pie memorie domini Everardi quondam...filii nostri”, by charter dated 3 Mar 1243[1703]. Graf von der Mark. Engelbert Graf von der Mark, son of Adolf, names "fratrem nostrum Ottonem comitem de Althena…uxore nostra Kunegundi" in a charter dated 1250[1704]. “Engelbertus comes de Marca” donated “ecclesiam in Marca cum filia sua in Hammona” to Kloster Cappenberg, with the consent of “fratrum nostrorum comitis de Altena Ottonis et Gerhardi prepositi sancte marie in Traiecto Superiori”, by charter dated 6 Jun 1254[1705]. "Godefridus comes de Arnesberg cum uxore nostra Alheydi et…Engelbertus comes de Marcha cum uxore nostra Cunegundi" donated "patronatus ecclesie de Lussenich" to the Teutonic Knights, for the soul of "quondam comitis Henrici Seynensis", by charter dated Jul 1258[1706]. "Otto de Altena et Engilbertus de Marcha, fratres comites" agreed an exchange with Berta Abbess of Essen by charter dated 23 Oct 1261[1707]. Levoldus’s mid-14th century Chronica Comitum de Marka records that Engelbert was “manburnus [regent?] comitatus de Tekeneborch” after the death of “uxore sua prima Cunegunde” and was proposed for “sede Osnaburgensis ecclesie vacante, in episcopum”[1708]. “Engelbertus comes de Marka” sold property to “Adolphi comitis de Monte”, with the consent of “nostrorum heredum Everhardi nostri filii, Sophie, Agnetis et Richardis”, by charter dated 15 Nov 1265[1709]. “Engelbertus...comes in Marcha” donated “domum in Thudinchusen” to Kloster Cappenberg, with the consent of “domine Elizabet comitisse uxoris nostre et filiorum nostrorum Everhardi et Gerhardi”, by charter dated 1270[1710]. "…Engelbertus de Marka, Godefridus [error for Eberhardus] filius eius…" were among those who declared war against Sifrid Archbishop of Köln by charter dated 8 Apr 1277[1711]. Levoldus’s mid-14th century Chronica Comitum de Marka records the death “circa festum omnium sanctorum” 1277 of “comes Engelbertus...in captivitate”, recording in a later passage that his son Eberhard recovered his father’s body from “castrum Bredenvort” the following year and buried it “in Cappenberch”[1712].
     "m firstly (before 1250) KUNIGUNDE, daughter of --- (-before 1265). Engelbert Graf von der Mark names "fratrem nostrum Ottonem comitem de Althena…uxore nostra Kunegundi" in a charter dated 1250[1713]. There is some doubt about the family origin of Kunigunde. Levoldus’s mid-14th century Chronica Comitum de Marka records that Engelbert was “manburnus [regent?] comitatus de Tekeneborch” after the death of “uxore sua prima Cunegunde”[1714], which suggests that she was related to the Grafen von Tecklenburg. However, under a charter dated Jul 1258, "Godefridus comes de Arnesberg cum uxore nostra Alheydi et…Engelbertus comes de Marcha cum uxore nostra Cunegundi" donated "patronatus ecclesie de Lussenich" to the Teutonic Knights, for the soul of "quondam comitis Henrici Seynensis"[1715]. This latter documents suggests that she was a joint heiress of Heinrich Graf von Sayn, maybe Kunigunde, daughter of Heinrich Graf von Bliescastel & his wife Agnes von Sayn. This parentage is also indicated by the charter dated 2 Sep 1263 under which “Godefridus comes de Arnesberg” agreed an alliance with Engelbert Archbishop of Köln, except respecting his obligations towards “domino Simone Paderbornensis ecclesie episcopo, domino Engelberto comite de Marcha consanguineo meo, genero meo domino Bernhardo seniore de Lippia et Bernardo nato ipsius dominis...genero meo domino Henrico comite de Waltegge et viro nobili Ottone de Ravensberg”[1716]: no other family relationship has been identified between Engelbert [I] Graf von der Mark and Gottfried [III] Graf von Arnsberg, although it is unusual for a relative by marriage to be described as “consanguineus”.
     "m secondly ([1264/65]) ELISABETH van Valkenburg, daughter of DIRK [II] Heer van Valkenburg & his first wife Bertha van Limburg. Levoldus’s mid-14th century Chronica Comitum de Marka records that Engelbert Graf von der Mark married secondly “Elisabeth neptis domini archiepiscopi filia domini de Valkenborch” as part of the peace settlement of the war with Engelbert van Valkenburg Archbishop of Köln[1717]. “Engelbertus...comes in Marcha” donated “domum in Thudinchusen” to Kloster Cappenberg, with the consent of “domine Elizabet comitisse uxoris nostre et filiorum nostrorum Everhardi et Gerhardi”, by charter dated 1270[1718]."

     ; Per Wikipedia:
     "Adolf I, Count de la Mark (German: Adolf I. Graf von der Mark und Krickenbeck) (c. 1182? – 28 June 1249), until 1226 also known as Adolf I, Count of Altena-Mark. He was son of Frederick I, Count of Berg-Altena and Alveradis of Krickenbeck, daughter of Reiner of Krieckenbeck-Millendonk.[1][2]
     "Adolf belonged to a collateral line of the counts of Berg and was founder of the new noble branch of the Counts de la Mark.
     "Following the year 1226, he reunited the lands of the Counts of Berg-Altena, which had been in possession of the counts of Altena and Isenberg, the senior lines of the family ever since the division of their heritage in 1180, thereby forming the county of Mark with its capital city of Hamm. Moreover, Adolf I was reeve of the monasteries of Cappenberg and Werden.
Date of birth
     "Adolf's date of birth is unclear. Commonly accepted is the year 1194,[3][4] though sometimes an earlier date has been assumed.[5]
     "In his book Die Landstände der Grafschaft Mark bis zum Jahre 1510: Mit Urkundlichen Beilagen, Rudolf Schulze determined Adolf's date of birth to be in 1164. This assertion does not tie with his parents' life data.
     "Referring to various sources, the year 1199 is proposed by Genealogie Mittelalter.[2]
     "At that time Adolf must have been born already, though; in 1198 his father Frederick had erected Burg Mark on the hill belonging to Oberhof Mark near Hamm on behalf of his son.[6]
     "In fact Adolf signed as a witness a charter in 1194,[7] and thus logic requires that he had reached majority by that time. In medieval Germany majority was bound to the ability to serve in battle or bearing arms. This was usually between 12 and 15, so that Adolf had to be born at least 12 years before signing the charter in 1194. Referring to this Adolf was born in the period between 1179 and 1182.
     "Another legal fact supporting this theory is that Adolf's father died either in 1198 or 1199 and he became the new Count of Altena-Mark and Krickenbeck. If he was not old enough to rule by that time his mother or a close relative would have become regent for him. But there is no sign of this in any charters of the time. Instead Adolf is signing further charters; in 1202 he names himself in another charter Adolfus puer comes de Marke. The puer comes was often translated as "young Count" but in medieval times the Latin word puer is also used for the social status known as knave or squire, or by simpler means as Knight in apprenticeship. In 1205 he signs again a charter but this time only using his legal name and title as Adolphus com. de Marka without the puer prefixed to the title. His time as squire was seemingly over. So any assumed date of birth after 1182 becomes more unlikely. Noble boys started their career at age 12, but more normally at 14 years, the same age they gained their majority. The apprenticeship lasted usually until the age of 20 or 21, before the squire was finally knighted. This fits perfectly with Adolf being puer comes... in 1202 and com. de Marka in 1205, even by means of the age, if he was born in 1182 he would have been 20 by 1202 and about 23 by 1205.
Life
     "Like his father Adolf I became Count of Berg-Altena and Krickenbeck and reeve of the monasteries of Werden and Cappenberg.
     "From 1202, Adolf took on the sobriquet of "von der Mark", after this new main residency which his father had built on land originally acquired from either the Archbishop of Cologne (Philipp of Heinsberg) or the noble family of Rüdenberg.
     "As with the whole family, Adolf was drawn into the German Crown Heritage Dispute. Sources differ for which side he fought. Stirnberg has it that Adolf was on the Staufers side right from the beginning. Possibly Adolf stayed undecided until he finally decided with the Staufer in 1212.
     "However, in 1225 Adolf seemed to have established himself as loyal kinsman of the Emperor and the Archbishop of Cologne.
     "After the conflict opposing his cousins Frederick of Isenberg and Engelbert II of Berg, Archbishop of Cologne, which ended with the murder of the Archbishop and the condemnation and execution of Frederick, Adolf was awarded large portions of his cousin's, Frederick of Isenberg, properties, thereby re-uniting most of the Berg inheritance.
Death
     "Adolf died on 28 June 1249; he is buried in Cappenberg Abbey.[8] He was succeeded by his son:
** Engelbert I, Count of the Mark.

     "Adolf I, Graf von Altena, was born about 1194, the son of Friedrich I, Graf von Altena, Herr von der Mark, and Alveradis von Jülich. He was a count of Berg and Altena, and was the count von der Mark. Adolf's first marriage (from 1210) was with Lutgardis, possibly the daughter of Gerhard von Looz. With his second wife Irmgard van Gelre, daughter of Otto I, Graaf van Gelre, and Richardis von Scheyern-Wittelsbach, he had five children of whom Engelbert, Adelheid and Richarda would have progeny.
     "Like the entire line of Berg-Altena, Adolf was drawn into the conflict over the German throne. However there are differences of opinion about his allegiance. On one view he favoured the Hohenstaufen from the outset. On another, Adolf initially swung between the Welfs and Hohenstaufen, and only committed to the latter in 1212. Adolf was then a faithful supporter of the emperor and the archbishops of Cologne.
     "After the destruction of the castle of Nienbrügge of his cousin Friedrich II, Graf von Altena, Graf von Isenburg, Adolf received a large part of Friedrich's estates. This followed the assassination of Archbishop Engelbert I of Cologne in November 1225 by Friedrich's men. Adolf took the advantage of the resulting power vacuum to take over the estates of the counts of Altena south of the river Lippe. Adolf made obvious his allegiance to the new archbishop of Cologne, Graf Heinrich I von Müllenark, and symbolically gave up use of the names Berg and Altena, and from 1226 he referred to himself only as Graf von der Mark. As punishment for the murder, Adolf on behalf of the archbishop of Cologne destroyed the fortifications belonging to Friedrich, including Nienbrügge, from which Friedrich, as count of Hövel, had secured the rule over his lands in the Lippe area.
     "The residents of Nienbrügge offered Adolf a new home on nearby land in the fork between the Lippe and Abse rivers. With their help Adolf, on Ash Wednesday, March 1226, founded the town of Hamm there. From his new capital he ruled his county of Mark, comprising large parts of the former county of Hövel and other lands that Adolf acquired over time. He also built the castle of Blankenstein (Hattingen), as another centre of power for his Isenburg estates.
     "When Friedrich von Isenburg's son Dietrich laid claims to his father's former estates, an inheritance war broke out that lasted until 1243. In the course of it, Adolf turned at times for support to Archbishop Heinrich's successor Konrad von Hochstaden, and he finally won control of Altena-Isenburg. Dietrich, on the other hand, only won the co-rule of the small land of Hohen-Limburg in Bochum; later Adolf also gave up the county of Berg in his favour. In addition, Adolf had to vacate the lands north of the Lippe (around the parishes of Bockum Hövel and Heessen); these remained with the bishopric of Münster. Later Adolf won the county of Krumme near Dortmund, and parts of Rüdenberg. His territory was one of the greatest in Westphalia, and therefore over time it came ever more in competition with the archbishops of Cologne. For some areas, however, Adolf was their vassal.
     "Adolf died on 28 June 1249. He is buried in the abbey of Cappenberg."2

Adolf IV von Hövel Graf von Berg & Hövel was buried after 12 October 1160 at Altenberg.1


     ; Per Genealogics:
     "Adolf was born after 1095, the son of Adolf III, Graf von Berg und Hoevel, and Adelheid von Kleve. In 1127 he married Irmgard/Margarethe von Schwarzenburg-Sponheim, daughter of Engelbert von Schwarzenburg and niece of Friedrich I von Schwarzenburg, archbishop of Cologne. Of their six sons Eberhard I and Engelbert I would have progeny, and divided his estates after his death. Their eldest son Adolf died without issue in 1148 at the failed siege of Damascus in the Second Crusade, to which he accompanied his father. Their other sons Friedrich II and Bruno III would both become archbishops of Cologne, and Arnold would become bishop of Osnabrück.
     "Adolf was first mentioned in sources in 1115; he was then the steward of a Benedictine abbey and about 20 years old. He was the builder of the castle of Berg. In 1133 he gave the old seat of the counts of Berg, the castle of Berge Odenthal-Altenberg, to the Cistercian Order.
     "In 1138 he was steward of the Abbey of Siegburg. He was also steward of the abbeys of Werden, Dünnwald, Deutz and Cappenberg and the estates of the Cologne Cathedral on the right bank of the Rhine.
     "Of great economic and political significance for the county of Berg was control of the Hanseatic commercial routes between Cologne and Dortmund as well as the silver wealth of the Berg lands, which is documented through coins struck from the second third of the 11th century. Adolf also had coins struck in Wildberg, Bensberg and Siegburg.
     "In 1152 Adolf developed the castle of Altena. In 1160 he gave up his rule and became a monk in Altenberg. He died probably on 12 October 1161, and was buried first in the Markuskapelle, the oldest building in Altenberg, dating from 1125. After the transept of the Altenberg Cathedral was finished, his remains were transferred to the cathedral in 1313 by provost Konrad."2

Friedrich [I] Archbishop of Köln confirmed the dismissal of "comes Gerhardus et frater eius Heinricus" from the Vogteischaft of Kloster Siegburg by charter dated 5 Apr 1118 witnessed by "Comes Gerhardus et frater eius Heinricus, Comes Adolfus de Monte, Comes Adolfus de Saphenberg, Comes Gerhardus de Iuliaco, Gerhardus iunior filius Gerhardi, Gerhardus de Caesle, Arnulfus de Odenkirche"[119]. Vogt von Dunwald: Friedrich [I] Archbishop of Köln confirmed donations to Kloster Dunwald and shared the Vogteischaft with "comitis Adolphi" by charter dated 1118 witnessed by "Adolfus comes de Monte et frater eius Euerhardus, Gerardus comes de Wassenberg […et filius eius Gerardus], Theodericus comes de Thonburch, Theodericus comes de Ara, domnus Goswinus de Hennesberg et frater eius Gerardus…Gerardus de Wyckerode…"[120]. Friedrich [I] Archbishop of Köln donated Kloster Rolandswerth on an island in the river Rhine to Kloster Siegburg by charter dated 1 Aug 1126 witnessed by "Tiedericus comes de Are, Adolfus comes de Berge, Adolfus comes de Safenberg, Arnoldus comes de Cleue, Cunradus comes de Bunna, Gerardus comes de Iuleche et filius eius Gerardus, Gerardus comes de Hostade…"[121].

Paganus dux, Franco burgicomes, Gerhardus comes de Gelre, Adolfus comes de Monte, Adolfus comes de Saffenberg…"[122]. He founded the Cistercian Kloster Altenberg in 1133. Wolbero Abbot of Köln St. Pantaleon restored "subadvocat[um] in villa nostra Huttorp", removed from “subadvocatus...Gumpertus cum matre sua Gerdrude”, to “comite Adolpho” by charter dated to [1151/53], witnessed by “ipse comes Adolphus, filius eius Euerhardus...”[123]. "Adolfus comes de Monte" confirmed a donation to Köln St Pancraz by charter dated 1160 witnessed by "meus filius…Engilbertus…"[124]. Levoldus’s mid-14th century Chronica Comitum de Marka records that “Adulphus...comes de Altena” founded “cenobium Montis Veteris” and was buried there[125]. A memorial in Altenburg records the death “IV Id Oct” 1152 of “Adolphus ex comite monachus et fundator hujus cœnobii”[126], although if the 1160 charter is correctly dated the year is incorrect.
     "m firstly ([before 1115]) ADELHEID, daughter of [GOTTFRIED [I] Graf von Cappenberg] & his wife Beatrix von Hildrizhausen]. Adelheid is shown in Europäische Stammtafeln[127] as the daughter of Gottfried [I] Graf von Cappenberg and his wife Beatrix von Hildrizhausen. However, another table[128] shows Adelheid as the daughter of Beatrix by her second husband Heinrich Graf von Rietberg. The primary source which confirms her parentage and marriage has not yet been identified. It is not therefore possible at this moment to judge which version is more likely to be correct. The answer may lie in the transmisison of the advocatiam of Werden abbey, previously held by Gottfried Graf von Cappenberg and which the following charter was transmitted to Adolf [II] Graf von Berg: Lüdbert Abbot of Werden and "domnum Thuringum" confirmed “precarii nostri in Dale” to Werden by charter dated 1115, witnessed by “Adolfus advocatus noster...Euerhardus frater eius, Bernherus comes...”[129]. It appears probable therefore that Adelheid was the daughter of Graf Gottfried [I] and that the advocatiam of Werden was her dowry. If that is correct, Adelheid presumably married before the date of this charter. It should be noted that Adolf was recorded as Vogt of Werden in 1093 when he was still a boy (see above), which suggests that arrnagements for the marriage were made when the parties were children.
     "m secondly ([1130]) [--- von Sponheim, daughter of ENGELBERT [II] von Sponheim Marchese of Istria, Duke of Carinthia & his wife Uta von Passau [Ratpotonen]]. The Chronicle of Alberic de Trois-Fontaines names "comitissa Mathildis Campaniensis et uxor Renaldi comitis Nivernensis et comitissa Montis Veteris iuxta Coloniam et mater illorum Romanorum qui Froiepain dicuntur" as sisters of "archiepiscopi Coloniensis Frederici"[130]. In the case of the two sisters named first, other sources confirm that they were daughters of Engelbert Marchese of Istria, Duke of Carinthia. It is possible therefore that the other two named sisters (of which the countess of Berg was one) were also Engelbert’s daughters. Ascertaining the precise family relationship between all four presumed sisters and Friedrich [I] Archbishop of Köln depends on interpreting apparently contradictory sources which link the archbishop with the Sponheim and Schwarzenberg/Regensberg families, a problem which is discussed in detail in the document BAVARIA NOBILITY. Europäische Stammtafeln indicates that Adolf [II]’s second wife was the daughter of Engelbert, son of Berthold [I] [von Schwarzenberg][131]. No primary source has been identified which confirms that this is correct: it is presumably consistent with another theory about the origin of Archbishop Friedrich."

Lothar King of Germany confirmed property of Duisburg by charter dated 8 May 1129 witnessed by "…Comites: …Godefridus et Hermannus de Cuch…"[1970]. “Alveradis mulier nobilis” donated property to Marienweerd, with the consent of “filiis suis Godefrido et Herimanno”, by charter dated 1129[1971].

The Vita Godefridi comitis Capenbergensis refers to "Friderici comitis filiam" as the wife of Gottfried Graf von Cappenburg[1975]. The Annales Stadenses specifies that "unam filiam [Frederici comitis de Arnesberch]", without naming her, was wife of "Godefridus de Cuc, pater comitem Heinrici et Frederici de Arnesburch" while "secundam filiam [Frederici comitis de Arnesberch]", without naming her either, was wife of "Otto de Cappenburch, cuius filia Eilica uxor Eilmari"[1976]. Europäische Stammtafeln[1977] conflates these two possible daughters into one, married twice. No source has been identified which confirms that this is correct, although the death of Gottfried Graf von Cappenberg shortly before the marriage to Gottfried van Kuyc suggests that it is a possibility. This is the solution which is shown here. The Annales Stadenses contain many inaccuracies and it is preferable not to rely exclusively on this source in the absence of independent corroboration. This unreliability is illustrated by the reference to "Otto de Capenburch", which must be an error for Gottfried, and by the suggestion that the couple were parents of Eilika, later Gräfin von Oldenburg. The latter point contradicts the Vita Godefridi comitis Cappenbergensis which names Heinrich Graf von Rietberg (see below) as Eilika's father, which is a more acceptable possibility from a chronological point of view.

Graf von Berg. "Liberi: Tiedrich comes de Ara, Gerart de Guileche, Gerart de Blanchinheim, Gerard de Hohstade, Adolf comes de Saphinberk, Adolf de Berge, Engelbreit de Kente..." witnessed the charter dated 1115 under which Friedrich Archbishop of Köln confirmed revenue and tolls to Münstereisel[115]. Lüdbert Abbot of Werden and "domnum Thuringum" confirmed “precarii nostri in Dale” to Werden by charter dated 1115, witnessed by “Adolfus advocatus noster...Euerhardus frater eius, Bernherus comes...”[116]. Friedrich [I] Archbishop of Köln donated property to Kloster Siegburg by charter dated 1116 witnessed by "Franco burgicomes, comes Fridericus de Arnesberg, comes Adolfus de Monte, Theodericus de Gladbach, Arnulfus de Odenkirche…"[117]. Friedrich [I] Archbishop of Köln confirmed donations to Kloster Siegburg by charter dated 29 Mar 1117 witnessed by "Comes Fridericus de Arnesburg, Comes Adolfus de Monte, Comes Adolfus de Saphfenberg, Comes Gerhardus de Iuliaco, Theodericus de Gladebach et Edelgerus frater eius…"[118]. Friedrich [I] Archbishop of Köln confirmed the dismissal of "comes Gerhardus et frater eius Heinricus" from the Vogteischaft of Kloster Siegburg by charter dated 5 Apr 1118 witnessed by "Comes Gerhardus et frater eius Heinricus, Comes Adolfus de Monte, Comes Adolfus de Saphenberg, Comes Gerhardus de Iuliaco, Gerhardus iunior filius Gerhardi, Gerhardus de Caesle, Arnulfus de Odenkirche"[119]. Vogt von Dunwald: Friedrich [I] Archbishop of Köln confirmed donations to Kloster Dunwald and shared the Vogteischaft with "comitis Adolphi" by charter dated 1118 witnessed by "Adolfus comes de Monte et frater eius Euerhardus, Gerardus comes de Wassenberg […et filius eius Gerardus], Theodericus comes de Thonburch, Theodericus comes de Ara, domnus Goswinus de Hennesberg et frater eius Gerardus…Gerardus de Wyckerode…"[120]. Friedrich [I] Archbishop of Köln donated Kloster Rolandswerth on an island in the river Rhine to Kloster Siegburg by charter dated 1 Aug 1126 witnessed by "Tiedericus comes de Are, Adolfus comes de Berge, Adolfus comes de Safenberg, Arnoldus comes de Cleue, Cunradus comes de Bunna, Gerardus comes de Iuleche et filius eius Gerardus, Gerardus comes de Hostade…"[121]. Friedrich [I] Archbishop of Köln confirmed a donation to Kloster Siegburg by charter dated 1129 witnessed by "…Liberi. Paganus dux, Franco burgicomes, Gerhardus comes de Gelre, Adolfus comes de Monte, Adolfus comes de Saffenberg…"[122]. He founded the Cistercian Kloster Altenberg in 1133. Wolbero Abbot of Köln St. Pantaleon restored "subadvocat[um] in villa nostra Huttorp", removed from “subadvocatus...Gumpertus cum matre sua Gerdrude”, to “comite Adolpho” by charter dated to [1151/53], witnessed by “ipse comes Adolphus, filius eius Euerhardus...”[123]. "Adolfus comes de Monte" confirmed a donation to Köln St Pancraz by charter dated 1160 witnessed by "meus filius…Engilbertus…"[124]. Levoldus’s mid-14th century Chronica Comitum de Marka records that “Adulphus...comes de Altena” founded “cenobium Montis Veteris” and was buried there[125]. A memorial in Altenburg records the death “IV Id Oct” 1152 of “Adolphus ex comite monachus et fundator hujus cœnobii”[126], although if the 1160 charter is correctly dated the year is incorrect.
     "m firstly ([before 1115]) ADELHEID, daughter of [GOTTFRIED [I] Graf von Cappenberg] & his wife Beatrix von Hildrizhausen]. Adelheid is shown in Europäische Stammtafeln[127] as the daughter of Gottfried [I] Graf von Cappenberg and his wife Beatrix von Hildrizhausen. However, another table[128] shows Adelheid as the daughter of Beatrix by her second husband Heinrich Graf von Rietberg. The primary source which confirms her parentage and marriage has not yet been identified. It is not therefore possible at this moment to judge which version is more likely to be correct. The answer may lie in the transmisison of the advocatiam of Werden abbey, previously held by Gottfried Graf von Cappenberg and which the following charter was transmitted to Adolf [II] Graf von Berg: Lüdbert Abbot of Werden and "domnum Thuringum" confirmed “precarii nostri in Dale” to Werden by charter dated 1115, witnessed by “Adolfus advocatus noster...Euerhardus frater eius, Bernherus comes...”[129]. It appears probable therefore that Adelheid was the daughter of Graf Gottfried [I] and that the advocatiam of Werden was her dowry. If that is correct, Adelheid presumably married before the date of this charter. It should be noted that Adolf was recorded as Vogt of Werden in 1093 when he was still a boy (see above), which suggests that arrnagements for the marriage were made when the parties were children.
     "m secondly ([1130]) [--- von Sponheim, daughter of ENGELBERT [II] von Sponheim Marchese of Istria, Duke of Carinthia & his wife Uta von Passau [Ratpotonen]]. The Chronicle of Alberic de Trois-Fontaines names "comitissa Mathildis Campaniensis et uxor Renaldi comitis Nivernensis et comitissa Montis Veteris iuxta Coloniam et mater illorum Romanorum qui Froiepain dicuntur" as sisters of "archiepiscopi Coloniensis Frederici"[130]. In the case of the two sisters named first, other sources confirm that they were daughters of Engelbert Marchese of Istria, Duke of Carinthia. It is possible therefore that the other two named sisters (of which the countess of Berg was one) were also Engelbert’s daughters. Ascertaining the precise family relationship between all four presumed sisters and Friedrich [I] Archbishop of Köln depends on interpreting apparently contradictory sources which link the archbishop with the Sponheim and Schwarzenberg/Regensberg families, a problem which is discussed in detail in the document BAVARIA NOBILITY. Europäische Stammtafeln indicates that Adolf [II]’s second wife was the daughter of Engelbert, son of Berthold [I] [von Schwarzenberg][131]. No primary source has been identified which confirms that this is correct: it is presumably consistent with another theory about the origin of Archbishop Friedrich."

The information has not been corroborated in any earlier primary source, although it is not known what prior documentation may have been available to the compiler of the Casus. There are several other difficulties with this marriage which suggest that the report in the Casus should be treated with caution. If the information is accurate, it is likely that the bride was a full sister of King Charles, although if this is correct her absence from contemporary documentation is surprising. If she had been Charles's half-sister, it is difficult to see how Charles would have had much influence on her marriage, which would have been arranged by one of her full brothers. In any case, it is unlikely that Emperor Louis's first wife would have had further children after [812/15] at the latest, given the birth of her eldest son in 795. If that estimated birth date is correct, then it is more likely that this daughter's marriage would have been arranged by her father Emperor Louis before his death in 840. Another problem is the potential consanguinity between the parties. Although the precise relationship between the couple's son Udalrich [III] and the earlier Udalrichinger cannot be established from available documentation, it is probable that he was closely related to Hildegard, first wife of Emperor Charles I, who was the paternal grandmother of Emperor Louis's children. Lastly, Udalrich [III] is recorded in charters dated 847 and 854, suggesting a birth date in the 820s assuming that he was adult at the time, which is inconsistent with Charles II "le Chauve" (born in 823) having arranged his parents' marriage.

If the information is accurate, it is likely that the bride was a full sister of King Charles, although if this is correct her absence from contemporary documentation is surprising. If she had been Charles's half-sister, it is difficult to see how Charles would have had much influence on her marriage, which would have been arranged by one of her full brothers. In any case, it is unlikely that Emperor Louis's first wife would have had further children after [812/15] at the latest, given the birth of her eldest son in 795. If that estimated birth date is correct, then it is more likely that this daughter's marriage would have been arranged by her father Emperor Louis before his death in 840. Another problem is the potential consanguinity between the parties. Although the precise relationship between the couple's son Udalrich [III] and the earlier Udalrichinger cannot be established from available documentation, it is probable that he was closely related to Hildegard, first wife of Emperor Charles I, who was the paternal grandmother of Emperor Louis's children. Lastly, Udalrich [III] is recorded in charters dated 847 and 854, suggesting a birth date in the 820s assuming that he was adult at the time, which is inconsistent with Charles II "le Chauve" (born in 823) having arranged his parents' marriage.]"

; Per Med Lands:
     "daughter . The relationship between the sons of Gebhard and Ernst is clarified by the Annales Bertiniani which record that "nepotes ipsius [Ernestus]" were expelled from the kingdom in 861[86]. If the suggestion by Jackman concerning Gebhard's affiliation (see below) is correct, he would have been the brother-in-law not brother of Ernst [I], married to the latter's sister.
     "m GEBHARD, son of [EUDES Comte d'Orléans & his wife Engeltrudis ---] (-after 879). Jackman suggests that Gebhard (ancestor of the Konradiner) was the brother of Ermentrude, first wife Charles II "le Chauve" King of the West Franks, therefore the son of Eudes Comte d'Orléans and his wife Engeltrudis[87]. However, this appears chronologically doubtful if Gebhard is identified with "Gebehardus" who founded Kloster Kettenbach, as recorded in the charter of "Ludowicus…rex" dated 31 Mar [845] in which the king donated property "in pago Heinriche villam…Lierschiet" to Kloster Kettenbach "in pago Logonense iuxta fluvium Arda" by "vir…fidelisque noster Gebehardus" by charter dated 31 Mar 845[88]. Graf im Niederlohngau, east of Frankfurt-am-Main in the Aardbergen[89]. Nevertheless, an interesting possible corroboration for Gebhard's relationship with the Konradiner family is provided by the Annales Bertiniani which record that "Adalardo Yrmintrudis reginæ avunculo" was "propinquo" of the brothers Udo (ancestor of the Franconian Konradiner family), Berengar and Waldo who were expelled from Germany in 865[90], and in a later passage that "Adalardo…et suis propinquis Hugonis et Berengario" fought the Vikings in 865[91]. "Adalardo" was Adalhard [I], maternal uncle of Gebhard assuming the relationship is as shown here, and the brothers Udo, Berengar and Waldo were of course Gebhard's sons. Graf im Niederlahngau. Monk at Gemünden 879."

Her parentage is indicated by her husband's testament under which "Gerardus [comes]" names "coniugis meæ…Berthæ…genitoribus atque parentibus…Luthardi et Grimildis atque…Hugonis et Bavæ…filiis et filiabus ipsorum"[164]. Pope John VIII recalls "Gerardus comes…cum Berta quondam conjuge sua" as founders of the monastery referred to in his letter[165]. Charles II "le Chauve" King of the West Franks confirmed the foundation of the monastery "in pago Avalensi in parrochia Augustudunensis civitatis in loco…Virziliacus" by "Gerardus…comes", with the consent of "coniugis sue Berthæ", by charter dated 6 Jan 868[166]. The Chronico Vezeliacensi records that "Berta comitissa hujus loci fundatrix" died in 844 and was buried "apud Pulterias"[167], although the year is incorrect.
