About Conrad I "the Elder", count of Auxerre

Conrad I "l'Ancien" was the count of several counties, most notably the Aargau and Auxerre, around Lake Constance, as well as Paris from 859 to 864. He was also the lay abbot of Saint-Germain in Auxerre.

He was one of the early Welfs, a member of the Bavarian branch, and his sister Judith was the second wife of Louis the Pious. In 858, he and his family — his wife Adelaide and his sons Hugh and Conrad the Younger — abandoned their sovereign Louis the German and went over to Charles the Bald, Judith's son. They were generously rewarded and Conrad was appointed to many countships. Louis the German confiscated his Bavarian fiefs and lands.

Conrad's father was Welf.

CONRAD "l'Ancien" (-22 Mar [862/66]). Thegan's Vita Hludowici Imperatoris names (in order) "Chuonradum et Ruodolfum" as brothers of Empress Judith[973]. Graf von Linz- und Argengau. Dux. Nithard records that Conrad and his brother Rudolf were forcibly tonsured in [Apr 830] by their sister's stepson, Lothar, then in revolt against his father, and sent to Aquitaine "to be held by Pepin"[974]. Comte de Paris. The Miraculis Sancti Germani record that "Chuonradus princeps" was cured of an eye problem by the saint, and that he built the church of Saint-Germain at Auxerre in thanks[975]. An agreement between Charles II "le Chauve" King of the West Franks and his brother Ludwig II "der Deutsche" King of the East Franks dated Jun 860 names "nobilis ac fidelibus laicis…Chuonradus, Evrardus, Adalardus, Arnustus, Warnarius, Liutfridus, Hruodolfus, Erkingarius, Gislebertus, Ratbodus, Arnulfus, Hugo, item Chuonradus, Liutharius, Berengarius, Matfridus, Boso, Sigeri, Hartmannus, Liuthardus, Richuinus, Wigricus, Hunfridus, Bernoldus, Hatto, Adalbertus, Burchardus, Christianus, Leutulfus, Hessi, Herimannus, item Hruodulfus, Sigehardus"[976]. "Ludowicus…rex" confirmed an exchange between Grimald abbot of St Gallen and "quidam comis…Chuonratus" relating to property in Linzgau and Argengau, by charter dated 1 Apr 861[977]. A poem by Walahfridus Strabus records the epitaph of "Chonradum comitem"[978]. The necrology of Auxerre cathedral records the death 22 Mar of "Conradus comes"[979].

m ADELAIS [de Tours], daughter of HUGUES Comte [de Tours] & his wife Ava ---. The Miraculis Sancti Germani name "Adheleid" as wife of "Chuonradus princeps"[980]. A poem by Walahfridus Strabus records the epitaph of "Adelheidam"[981]. The primary source which confirms her parentage has not yet been identified. Some secondary works[982] assert that the second husband of Adelais was Robert "le Fort" [Capet]. If this is correct, Adelais must have been Comte Robert's second or third wife as his known children were already born by the time Adelais's husband Conrad died. The assertion appears based on the Chronicle of St Bénigne de Dijon which names "duo filii Rotberti Andegavorum comitis, frs Hugonis abbatis, senior Odo…Robertus alter"[983]. Settipani states that the passage is a 12th century interpolation and has little historical value, although he does suggest that it is likely that the wife of Comte Robert was a close relation of Adelais without providing the basis for this statement[984]. A family connection between Comte Robert and Conrad Comte de Paris is also suggested by the former being invested with the county of Auxerre in 865, after this county was confiscated from the latter (as recorded by Hincmar[985]), on the assumption that there was some basis of heredity behind the transmission of counties in France at that time (which is probable, but remains unproven). Comte

Conrad & his wife had [five] children:

a) WELF (-before 876). The primary source which confirms his parentage has not yet been identified. Graf im Linzgau 842/850. Graf im Alpgau 852/858. m ---. The name of Welf's wife is not known. Graf Welf & his wife had [two possible children]:

i) [CONRAD . The primary source which confirms his parentage has not yet been identified. Graf im Linzgau.] ii) [ETICHO (-after 911, bur Ammergau). The primary source which confirms his parentage has not yet been identified. Graf im Ammergau.]

- see below.

b) CONRAD (-876). His parentage is deduced from Regino who names "Ruodolfus filius Chuonradi, nepos Huggonis abbatis"[986], the latter being recorded in the Miraculis Sancti Germani as "Hugo" one of the sons of "Chuonradus princeps", the patron of the church of Saint-Germain at Auxerre[987]. He helped save Charles II "le Chauve" King of the West Franks after the invasion of Ludwig II "der Deutsche" King of the East Franks. Comte d'Auxerre. He fell into disgrace in 861, and passed into the service of the sons of Emperor Lothar. He received from Emperor Louis the territories of Genève, Lausanne and Sion. Marquis de Transjurane in Dec 864 after he killed comte Hubert [Bosonide][988]. - KINGS of BURGUNDY.

c) HUGO (-Orléans 12 May 886, bur Saint-Germain d'Auxerre). The Annales Bertiniani name "Hugoni clerico, avunculi sui [=Karoli regis] Chonradi filio" when recording that he received the counties of Tours and Angers in 866[989]. Abbot of Saint-Germain d'Auxerre 853. The Miraculis Sancti Germani names "Hugo" as one of the sons of "Chuonradus princeps" who continued to patronise the church of Saint-Germain at Auxerre after their father's death[990]. Imperial missus in Auxerre in 853. Abbot of Saint-Riquier until 861. Abbot of Saint-Bertin 859/62. He was a supporter of King Lothar 861/865. He was elected Archbishop of Köln in 864. The Annales Xantenses record that "quidam tirannicus Hugo…filius predicti Cuonradi" (the previous paragraph naming "Cuonradi fratris quondam Iuthit reginæ") succeeded as archbishop of Köln[991]. Marquis de Neustrie, Comte de Tours et d'Angers 866. Comte d'Auxerre in [866], assuming that Hugues was appointed to succeed Robert "le Fort" in this as well as the latter's other counties, although the primary source which confirms this beyond doubt has not yet been identified. Abbot of Saint-Martin de Tours 866. Abbot of St Vaast, Arras [874]. Abbot of Saint-Aignan, Orléans before 876. Abbot of Saint-Julien d'Auxerre 877. Chaplain of the imperial chapel in [880]. "Hugo consobrinus eius [Conradi]" succeeded his cousin [as Abbot of Saint-Colombe de Sens] in 882, recording that he was "clericatus in Palatio"[992]. "Karolus…imperator augustus" confirmed a donation by "Hugo…propinquus noster" of property "villam Apiarias in pago Aurelianensi" to "episcopo Adalaldo archiepiscopo simulque Rainoni episcopo, fratri eiusdem" at the request of "Odo comes" by charter dated 27 Oct 886[993]. Regino records the death in 887 of "Hugo abba" at Orléans and his burial "apud Sanctum Germanum Autisiodoro"[994]. The necrology of Auxerre cathedral records the death 12 May of "Hugo abbas"[995].

d) RUDOLF . The primary source which confirms his parentage has not yet been identified.

e) [JUDITH]. The identity of Udo's wife is not known with certainty. According to Jackman[996], she may have been the daughter of Konrad Graf im Linz- und Argengau, whom he speculates was named Judith. King Arnulf in a charter dated 19 May 891 names "Chonradi…comitis et nepotis nostri"[997]. The speculation is that the relationship may have been through Konrad's mother who, if identified as the daughter of Graf Konrad, was the niece of King Arnulf's paternal grandmother Queen Hemma. m UDO Graf im Lahngau, son of GEBHARD Graf im Niederlahngau [Konradiner] & his wife ---. 860/879.]

http://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Konrad_I._%28Welfen%29 Konrad I. († 21. September nach 862) war ein Sohn des Grafen Welf I. und der Heilwig, ein Bruder der Kaiserin Judith († 843) und der Königin Hemma. Aufgrund dieser Verwandtschaft wurde er einer der engsten Vertrauten des Kaisers Ludwig der Fromme († 840), der auch dessen Haft 833/834 teilte, und dem es gelang, in Oberschwaben seiner Familie eine starke Machtposition aufzubauen.

Er war einer der drei Gesandten, die 842 von Karl dem Kahlen und Ludwig dem Deutschen mit außerordentlichen Vollmachten ausgestattet zu deren Bruder Lothar I. geschickt wurden, um über die Teilung des fränkischen Reiches zu verhandeln und Lothar den von ihnen bestimmten dritten Teil des Reiches anzubieten. Die beiden anderen Gesandten waren der Seneschall Adalhard und Graf Cobbo der Ältere.

Nach dem Tod Ludwigs des Frommen war er am Zustandekommen des Vertrags von Verdun (843) beteiligt. Er war nun Berater seines anderen Schwagers, Ludwigs des Deutschen, bis er diesen 859 während eines Feldzugs im Westfrankenreich verließ und sich gemeinsam mit seinen Söhnen dessen Halbbruder auf der Gegenseite, seinem leiblichen Neffen Karl dem Kahlen anschloss. Er war bereits zehn Jahre zuvor nach seiner Heirat mit Aelis, einer Tochter des Grafen Hugo von Tours aus der Familie der Etichonen, als Graf von Paris in das Königreich seines Neffen einbezogen. Aufgrund dieses Seitenwechsels verlor Konrad sämtliche Ämter und Grafschaften im Ostfrankenreich, wurde aber später im Westen durch die Grafschaft Auxerre entschädigt.

Konrad führte folgende Titel:

   * 830 „Dux nobilissimus“ (d.h. Herzog in Alemannien),
   * 839 – nach 849 Graf im Argengau,
   * 839 Graf im Alpgau,
   * 844 Graf im Linzgau,
   * 849 Graf von Paris,
   * nach 860 Graf von Auxerre als Gefolgsmann Karls des Kahlen;

Konrad und Aelis hatten mindestens drei Söhne:

   * Konrad II., Markgraf von Transjuranien
   * Hugo Abbas, † 12. Mai 886
   * Rudolf, † vor 864, Abt von Saint-Riquier, 849 Abt von Jumièges

sowie vermutlich auch

   * Welf II. (der aber auch ein Sohn von Konrads Bruder Rudolf sein könnte), 842/850 Graf im Linzgau, 852-858 Graf im Alpgau, der wahrscheinliche Stammvater der schwäbischen Welfen.

Aelis heiratete nach dem Tod Konrads in zweiter Ehe 864 den Robertiner Robert den Starken (le Fort), Graf von Tours und Paris († 15. September 866), womit sie Konrads Sohn Hugo Abbas, weniger Konrad II., der bei Karl dem Kahlen in Ungnade gefallen war und das Reich verlassen hatte, durch die Anbindung an die Robertiner erneut ins Machtzentrum des Westfrankenreichs rückte.

The Miracula Sancti Germani calls Conrad Chuonradus princeps (prince, sovereign), when recording his marriage. By some accounts his wife re-married to Robert the Strong after his death. [edit] Sources
