  • Marriage (1): Willibirg 1
  • Died: Bef 1044 1

  General Notes:

LIUTOLD (-before 1044). Graf im Sundgau. He held the castle of Montbéliard. Hlawitschka suggests that he was Liutold, son of Konrad I Duke of Swabia [Konradiner] & his wife Richlint [Regenlindis], but this assumes that the son of Duke Konrad of this name existed in the first place.

m WILLIBIRG, daughter of [UNRUOCH & his wife ---]. Her marriage is confirmed by the charter dated 1044 under which her son "Hunfredus…non infirmus ortus natalibus…Argentinensis ecclesia canonia" appointed the church of Strasbourg as his heir, excluding "patris mei Lutoldo meeque matris Willebirge fratris quoque mei chare memorie Wottonis" who had attempted to disinherit him. Ortlieb's Chronicon of Zwiefalten names "Willibirgæ de Mumpilgart seu de Wulvelingen" as wife of "comitis Liuthoni". Jackman speculates that Willibirg was the daughter of Adalbert II associate King of Italy & his wife Gerberge de Chalon, his reasoning being the onomastic connection between the Ivrean name 'Berengar', imported into the family of Liutold, and the use of 'Willa' among the ancestors of Adalbert King of Italy. However, another origin is suggested by the necrology of Zwiefalten which records the death "XIV Kal Dec" of "Unruoch proavus Liutoldi comitis". If this great grandfather were the father of Willibirg, it may also explain how the name Berenger entered the family, assuming that Unruoch was related to the Unruochingi Counts of Friulia.

Liutold & his wife had seven children: Hadamot, Gerberga, Liutgard, Otto, Hunfried, Berengar and Adelheid. 1
