  General Notes:

HEDWIG, daughter of DIETRICH [Graf von Viechtenstein [Formbach] & his wife Adelheid ---] (-4 Feb 1170, bur Reichersberg). "Dominus Engelbertus Hallensis Comes…cum uxore sua Hadewiga et duobus filiis suis Gebehardo et Diterico" donated property to Reichersberg monastery by charter dated to [1150]. Her parentage is confirmed by the charter dated to [1160] under which "Domina Hadewick Comitissa" donated property to Reichersberg monastery, for the souls of "senioris sui Comitis Engelberei et patris sui Comitis Diterici", on the assumption that "Comitis Diterici" was Dietrich Graf von Viechtenstein although this is probably not without all doubt. Wegener refers to the uncertainty about the identity of Hedwig´s father, but adds that this is indicated by Graf Engelbert owning Viechtenstein and Kreizenstein after Graf Dietrich's death. "Nobilis Princeps Dominus Gebehardus Hallensis Comes…cum matre sua Domina Hadewiga comitissa" donated property to Reichersberg monastery, with the consent of "fratre suo comite Diterico", by charter dated to [1160]. The necrology of Ättl records the death "XII Kal Sep" of "Engelbertus com secundus fundator huius monasterii Ättle 1087 et Mathildis [error for Hadewigis] uxor eius, Ekhardus et Dietricus filii eius". She became a nun at Reichersberg. The Chronicon Magni Presbiteri records the burial "VI Id Feb 1170" of "domna Hadewich ex comitissa conversa" in "capitolio canonicorum". 1

Hedwig married Engelbert von Wasserburg Graf von Wasserburg, son of Gebhard I von Wasserburg Graf von Diessen and Richgard von Sponheim.1 (Engelbert von Wasserburg Graf von Wasserburg was born between 1099 and 1102 1 and died on 20 Sep 1161 1.)
