ENGELBERT [I] von Sponheim, son of SIEGFRIED Graf von Sponheim und im Pustertal ex-Markgraf & his wife Richgard [Sieghardinger] (-1 Apr 1096). The Fundatio Monasterii Sancti Pauli in Carinthia names "comes Engelbertus ex patre Sigfrido Francorum civis, ex matre Rihkarda maiorum Karinthia primus". Graf im Kraichgau. Graf von Sponheim . Graf im Pustertal 1070. Vogt of Salzburg. The necrology of Regensburg St Emmeram records the death "Kal Apr" of "Engilbertus ex comite m". The necrology of Seckau records the death "Kal Apr" of "Engelbertus fundator s Pauli in Lavant".
m HEDWIG, daughter of --- (-1 Jun [after 1100]). The Fundatio Sancti Pauli in Carinthia names "Hadwich cometissa Engelberti relicta", and lists (in order) "Engelbert et Pernhart et Hainrich filii ipsius" as witnesses to the related diploma. The necrology of Regensburg St Emmeram records the death "Kal Jun" of "Hadewich coma". The Genealogia ex stirpe Sancti Arnulfi names "Idam Namucensem…uxorem Angelberti marchionis et Gertrudem comitissam Flandrensem" as children of "Bernardum". It is not certain to whom "Angelberti marchionis" refers, but it is possible that it is Engelbert [I] Graf von Sponheim whose father was Markgraf. If this is correct, she would have been Hedwig of Saxony, daughter of Bernhard II Duke of Saxony [Billung] & his wife Eilika von Schweinfurt. Wegener points out that a Saxon origin for Hedwig is consistent with the introduction of the names Bernhard and Heinrich into the family of the Grafen von Sponheim. However, if Hedwig was the daughter of Duke Bernhard, she must have been born in the range [1020/40]. This seems early in light of the known career dates of Hedwig's children.
Graf Engelbert [I] & his wife had seven children: Engelbert, Richgard, Hatrwig, Siegfried, Friedrich, Bernhard and Heinrich. 1
