Leben [Bearbeiten]

Politik [Bearbeiten]

Seit 1184 war Albrecht II. Graf von Arneburg in der von Otto II. beanspruchten und zu Brandenburg gehörenden Altmark. Als solcher wurde er 1194 von Otto aus ungeklärten Gründen zeitweilig inhaftiert, nahm dann am Dritten Kreuzzug (1189-1192) teil und war bei der Gründungsversammlung des Deutschen Ordens 1198 in Akkon anwesend. In den Thronstreitigkeiten zwischen Staufern und Welfen Anfang des 13. Jahrhunderts unterstützte Albrecht zunächst wie sein Bruder Otto vor ihm den Staufer König Philipp von Schwaben; nach dessen Ermordung 1208 ging er zu den Welfen über, da Kaiser Otto IV. ihm Unterstützung in der Sicherung der Markgrafschaft Brandenburg gegen die Dänen zusagte, die er 1212 urkundlich bestätigte. In dieser Zeit war Albrecht immer wieder in Streitigkeiten mit Erzbischof Albrecht I. von Magdeburg verwickelt. Albrecht II. sicherte die Regionen von Teltow, Prignitz und Teile der Uckermark endgültig für die Mark Brandenburg, verlor allerdings Pommern.

Gilt der Großvater Albrecht der Bär als Gründer der Mark Brandenburg und der Vater Otto I. als Förderer und Lenker der Siedlungsbewegung, resümiert Stephan Warnatsch zu den Söhnen: „[Sie] trieben den eingeleiteten Territorialisierungsprozeß fort und begannen ab dem Ende des 12. Jahrhunderts, als im Zuge der Ostbewegung der Zuzug von Siedlern immer stärker anwuchs und damit viel mehr «Personal» für den Landesausbau zur Verfügung stand, in die Lande Ruppin und vor allem Barnim und Teltow auszugreifen. Darüber hinaus waren die Oder und die südliche Uckermark Ziele des askanischen Expansionsbestrebens. Überall aber geriet man dabei mit den Ansprüchen konkurrierender Fürsten in Konflikt.“ [1]

Familie [Bearbeiten]

Verheiratet war Albrecht seit 1205 mit Mathilde von Groitzsch (1185 - 1225), Tochter des Grafen Konrad von Groitzsch aus dem Geschlecht der Wettiner und der polnischen Herzogstochter Elisabeth aus dem Geschlecht der Piasten; das Paar hatte vier Kinder:

   * Johann I. (ca. 1213 - 4. April 1266)
   * Otto III. der Fromme (1215 - 9. Oktober 1267)
   * Mechthild (? - 10. Juni 1261) ∞ 1228 Welfen Herzog Otto I. von Lüneburg (1204 - 1252), auch Otto das Kind genannt
   * Elisabeth (ca 1206 - ca. 1231) ∞ 1228 Landgraf Heinrich Raspe von Thüringen (1201 - 1247)

Bei seinem Tod waren die beiden Söhne noch unmündig. Die Lehnsvormundschaft übernahm zunächst Erzbischof Albrecht von Magdeburg, ab 1221 die Mutter, Gräfin Mathilde. Seit ihrem Tod im Jahre 1225 führten die Brüder die Markgrafschaft gemeinsam.

Denkmal Albrecht II. in der Berliner Siegesallee [Bearbeiten]

Das oben abgebildete Denkmal Albrechts stand in der ehemaligen Siegesallee im Tiergarten in Berlin, dem 1895 von Kaiser Wilhelm II. in Auftrag gegebenen „Prachtboulevard“ mit Denkmälern aus der Geschichte Brandenburgs und Preußens. Unter der Leitung von Reinhold Begas schufen zwischen 1895 und 1901 27 Bildhauer 32 Standbilder der Brandenburger und Preußischen Herrscher von jeweils 2,75 m Höhe. Jedes Standbild wurde flankiert von zwei kleineren Büsten mit der Darstellung von Personen, die im Leben des jeweiligen Herrschers oder für die Geschichte Brandenburgs/Preußens eine wichtige Rolle gespielt hatten.

Nebenfigur Eike von Repgow, Verfasser des Sachsenspiegels

Bei der Denkmalgruppe 4 waren das die Büsten von Eike von Repgow, dem Verfasser des Sachsenspiegels, und von Hermann von Salza, Hochmeister des Deutschen Ordens. Wie die Teilnahme Albrechts an dessen Gründungsversammlung zeigt (s.o.), hatte er zum Deutschritterorden eine enge Beziehung gewonnen, die in der gleichen politischen Zielsetzung hinsichtlich der Ostgebiete begründet lag. Hermann von Salza hatte er bereits auf dem Palästinakreuzzug kennengelernt und die Beziehung zeitlebens vertieft – die Wahl der Nebenfigur soll diese Beziehung ausdrücken.

Zu Eike von Repgow standen laut Mitteilung von Gustav Albrecht weder Albrecht II. noch die Mark Brandenburg in Verbindung. Die Wahl der Nebenfigur ist wahrscheinlich der Tatsache geschuldet, dass der Sachsenspiegel als das bedeutendste Rechtsbuch des deutschen Mittelalters großen Einfluss auch auf Brandenburg und Norddeutschland hatte. Allerdings hatte Eike eine enge Verbindung zum Haus der Askanier, denn er stand im Dienst von Heinrich I., Fürst von Anhalt.

Bildhauer der Denkmalgruppe war Johannes Böse. Die Enthüllung fand am 22. März 1898 statt. Das Denkmal Albrechts beschrieb Gustav Albrecht 1900 wie folgt: „Der Markgraf, im Kettenpanzer mit hoch geschlagener Kapuze, ist in kampfbereiter Stellung aufgefaßt, wie er mit gezogenem Schwerte eine Burg, vermutlich die im Jahre 1215 errichtete Grenzfeste Oderberg schützt. Das Haupt des energisch blickenden Fürsten schmückt ein schmaler Kronreif; um das mit dem märkischen Adler geschmückte Waffenhemd schlingt sich ein breiter Ziergürtel, ein langer Mantel fällt, von der Linken zusammengehalten, malerisch nach hinten herunter.“ [2]

ALBRECHT von Brandenburg, son of OTTO I Markgraf von Brandenburg & his second wife Adelheid [Ada of Holland?] ([1172/76]-25 Feb 1220, bur Kloster Lehnin). The Cronica Principum Saxonie names (in order) "Ottonem, Henricum et Albertum" as the three sons of "Otto primus [filius Alberti Ursi]"[167]. No primary source has yet been found which names his mother. Albrecht was not born in 1170, the date of the charter under which "Otto…Brandenburgensis marchio et Judita uxor mea, filiique nostri Otto maior et Henricus minor" granted customs privileges to the town of Brandenburg by charter dated 1170[168]. By that time Markgraf Otto I´s first wife Judyta would have been nearly 40 years old. It is therefore unlikely that she was his mother. A charter of Markgraf Otto I dated 1 Jan 1177 names "Adelheida conjugis mea et…heredibus meis Ottone et Heinrico et Adelberto"[169]. "Otto Brandenburgensis marchio" founded Kloster Arendsee, with the consent of "meis heredibus Ottone, Heinrico, Adelberto filiis meis et uxore mea Adelheide", by charter dated 1184[170].

Their right to Pomorze was recognised 17 Jul 1307 by Peter Święca of Nowe, a powerful local aristocrat, who rebelled against the rule of Wladysław "Łokietek/the Short" Prince of Poland[218]. Pulcawa's Bohemian Chronicle records the death of "Hermannus" at "castri Eldemburg" and his burial "in Leninensi monasterio"[219]. m (Graz Oct 1295) as her first husband, ANNA of Austria, daughter of ALBRECHT I Duke of Austria [later King of Germany] & his wife Elisabeth von Görz-Tirol ([1275/80]-Breslau 19 Mar 1327, bur Breslau, Kloster St Anna/St Klara). Pulcawa's Bohemian Chronicle records the marriage of "Hermannus filius Ottonis longi" and "filiam Alberti Regis Romanorum, quondam ducis Austrie"[220]. The Necrologium Austriacum records "Annam ducissam Bratislavie" third in its list of the daughters of King Albrecht & his wife, after "Agnetam reginam Ungarie, Elyzabet ducissam Lotharingie"[221]. This appears improbable assuming that the birth date of her sister Agnes is correct as shown below. Considering that Anna gave birth to her fourth child by her first marriage in 1302, it is unlikely that she could have been born after 1282. If this is correct, it is probable that she was her parents' first child. An undated memorial of the foundation of Kloster Arendsee names "Hermanni et Anne uxoris eius" among donors to the monastery[222]. She married secondly (1310, dispensation Avignon 28 May 1322) Heinrich VI Duke of Breslau [Piast]. The Chronica principum Polonie records that "Heinrico" married "filia ducis Austrie, que fuit quondam marchionissa Brandenburgensis"[223]. "Anna…ducissa Slesie dominaque Wratizlauensis et Arneborch" donated property to Kloster Arendsee by charter dated 31 May 1320[224]. The necrology of Königsfelden records the death "XIV Kal Apr" of "Anna ducissa Preslavie, soror dominarum duci Austrie et Styrie"[225]. Markgraf Hermann & his wife had four children: (a) AGNES ([1296/98]-28 Nov 1334). Pulcawa's Bohemian Chronicle names "Agnes" as the oldest of the three daughters of "Hermannus filius Ottonis longi" & his wife, specifying that she married "Woldemaro" but was childless[226]. An undated memorial of the foundation of Kloster Arendsee names "Woldemari et Agnetis uxoris eius" among donors to the monastery[227]. "Agnes ducissa Brunswiccensis" donated property to Kloster Arendsee with the consent of "domini et ducis Brunswiccensis conthoralis noster" by charter dated 6 Jun 1322 for the souls of "nostrorum progenitorum dominorum marchionum quondam Brandenburgensium"[228]. "Otto Dux in Bruneswich…Agnes conthoralis nostra" renounced rights in territories Brandenburg by charter dated 4 May 1323[229].
