| ||Notes for Hedwige von Bavaria:|
Stammtafeln says she is the daughter of Henry, Margrave of Mark (d886).
Current consensus (as summarised by E.Hlawitschka, in Rheinische
Vierteljarhrblatter, 1974, p141ff) is that she was a daughter ofMargrave Henry who died at paris against the Normans 28.8.886 (he alsooften appears with other titles: Duke of the Austrasians, is one ofthem). Her mother was according to the same author) was probably agrand-daughter of St.Ida (d.c.820) and the Saxon Count Egbert (flor.809-11).
I can only refer back to the same article: there was a family inSaxony
at this time who historians call the Egbertiner or Cobbonen aftertheir
most distinguished members. The details about Ida and Egbert's family
come from two sources: her Life (written 980/3) and the Translatio
S.Pusinnae (c.860/77). St.Ida was the founder of Herford, a convent
in Saxony. Her Life calls Egbert duke of all saxony between the Rhine
and the weser appointed by Charlemagne. A count Egbert appears in
the Royal frankish annals in 809 and 811 concerned with the boundary
between Saxony and the Denmark. Their children included Warin
abbot of Corvey 826-56, and Count Cobbo the Elder (d. fl 845), and
Addila abbess of Herford. This family continued to be important in
Saxony in the 10th century.
Ida is said to be the daughter of a Frankish count (though Hlawitschkatries to make her a daughter of Carloman I d.771, wrongly I think). AsEgbert of Wessex became king in 802 (?), it would seem unlikely thathe could have two different careers in two different countries, at thesame time. Unless the ASC date 802 is wrong.
PS: the Egbertiner are also mentioned in an article in English (about
the revolt of the Stellinga in Saxony c.840-43), in Speculum 70, 1995,p488.
Speculum is an American journal on Medieval History.
Dutch "Winkler Prins" encyclopedia says Henry was via his mother a
grandson of Louis the German (who was a grandson of Charlemagne). The
