HERMANN ([1015]-28 Jul 1038). The Chronicle of Otto of Freising names "geminosque ex ea [Ernusto duci Suevorum] filios Ernustum et Herimannum", although it is not certain that this should be taken as meaning that the two brothers were twins, reference to which has not yet been identified in other sources. Herimannus names "frater eius [=Ernust dux] iunior Herimannus" when recording his succession as Duke of Swabia in 1030 when his brother was deprived of the title. He succeeded his brother in 1030 as HERMANN IV Duke of Swabia. He succeeded his father-in-law as Marchese di Susa in 1036.
