ADELHEID, daughter of --- (-14 Jun ----). The Codex Traditionum of Formbach monastery records a donation by "Domnus Dietricus comes de Viehtensteine" for the soul of "uxoris sue domne Adelheide". Wegener suggests that she was the daughter of Luitpold III Markgraf of Austria, on the basis of her husband's death being recorded in the necrology of Scheftlarn, a foundation of Markgraf Luitpold's son Otto Bishop of Freising with which the Grafen von Formbach had no other known connection. However, this hypothesis is difficult to sustain from a chronological point of view as Markgraf Luitpold III second marriage took place in 1105 while Adelheid was already married to Dietrich in 1120. The necrology of Melk records the death "XVIII Kal Jul" of "Adalheid com". 1
Adelheid married Dietrich von Viechtenstein Graf von Viechtenstein, son of Heinrich II von Schweinachgau and Adelheid. (Dietrich von Viechtenstein Graf von Viechtenstein died about 29-30 Nov 1145 1 and was buried in Kloster Vornbach, Vornbach, Bayern, 94152, DE 1.)
