Bishop of Troyes 1145.

3. ULRICH (-7 or 11 Apr 1144, bur Rosazzo). The Fundatio Monasterii Baumburgensis names "Bernhardus dux Charintie, Eingelpertus marchio Ystrie, Hartwicus postea Ratisponensis episcopus et comes Rapoto de Chregeburc" as the four sons of "Eingelperto duci de Chraieburc" & his wife Uta, "Bernhardus" presumably being a mistake for "Ulricus"[113]. He succeeded his brother in 1135 as ULRICH I Duke of Carinthia. The necrology of Salzburg St Rudpert records the death "III Id Apr" of "Vdalricus dux"[114]. m JUDITH von Baden, daughter of HERMANN II Markgraf von Baden & his wife Judith [von Dillingen] (-1162, bur Backnang Stiftskirche). Her parentage and marriage are confirmed by the charter dated May 1149 under which Konrad III King of Germany confirmed the church of Seckau, witnessed by "Hainricus dux de Karinthia et avunculus eius Herimannus marchio de Baden…"[115]. The primary source which confirms her name has not yet been identified. Duke Ulrich & his wife had [four] children:

a) HEINRICH (-12 Oct 1161). Heinrich is shown in some secondary sources as the son of Engelbert von Sponheim Marchese of Istria. However, the source quoted below confirms that his father was Ulrich Duke of Carinthia. He was installed in 1144 as HEINRICH IV Duke of Carinthia. The document dated 17 Sep 1156 established the duchy of Austria is witnessed by "…Heinricus dux Carinthie…"[116]. Roman Bishop of Gurk granted "castrum Gravenstaine" and the Vogtei of Gurk to "ducem Karintie Hainricum cum germanis suis" by charter dated 20 Jun 1158, which names "pater ipsorum pie memorie duce Odalrico"[117]. The necrology of Salzburg St Rudpert records the death "IV Id Oct" of "Heinricus dux Karinthie"[118]. m as her second husband, ELISABETH of Styria, widow of RUDOLF II Graf von Stade Markgraf der Nordmark, daughter of LEOPOLD I "der Starke" Markgraf of Styria & his wife Sophie of Bavaria [Welf] ([1124]-25 Dec after 1138). The Annales Stadenses names "Elizabeth sororem Ottokkar de Stire" as wife of "Rodolfum [filius Rodulfi]"[119]. Her second marriage is deduced from the necrology of Seckau which records the death "VIII Kal Jan" of "Elitzabeth ducissa Carinthiæ sor ducis Styriæ"[120].

b) ULRICH (-before 1161). "Heinricus dux Charinthie, Odelricus frater eius" witnessed a charter dated to [1144] under which Konrad Archbishop of Salzburg confirmed the possessions of Chiemsee priory[121]. Graf von Laibach.

c) [GOTTFRIED (-before 1144). The primary source which confirms his parentage has not yet been identified. A priest. It is possible that the assessment about his supposed parentage is based on a charter dated to [1130] under which "Mehtilt Wdalrichi relicta et filius eius Hainric" donated property to Kloster St Paul "especially for love of filii sui monachi Gotfridi"[122]. It is not known how accurate the dating of this document is, but if it is correct the description of the donor as "relicta" means that she could not have been the mother of Heinrich IV Duke of Carinthia. In addition, the document makes no mention of any titles of the donor or the family members who are named. This would be unusual in the case of the upper aristocracy. Unless other primary source information comes to light, it is suggested that Gottfried was not the son of Ulrich I Duke of Carinthia.]

d) HERMANN (-4 Oct 1181). "Dux Karinthie Heremannus" sold "castrum Hohenwart" to Roman Bishop of Gurk, for the soul of "germani sui pie memorie ducis Hainrici", by charter dated 3 May 1162[123]. He was appointed to succeed his brother in 1161 as HERMANN II Duke of Carinthia.

4. MATHILDE von Sponheim (-[13 Dec 1160/1161]). She is named by Orderic Vitalis, who calls her father "Duke Engelbert", when recording her marriage[124].

"Teobaudus Blesensis comes" made a donation to Montiérender by charter dated 1139 with the consent of "Matildis comitissa uxor mee et Henricus filius meus"[126]. "Comitissa Mathildis et filius eius Henricus et Theobaudus et Stephanus" donated property to the abbey of Fontevraud by charter dated to [1125/49][127].

Leben und Wirken [Bearbeiten]

Engelbert war ein jüngerer Sohn von Graf Engelbert I. und der Hedwig, aus einem Adelsgeschlecht aus Friaul.

Durch seine erste Ehe mit der Erbtochter Uta, Tochter des einstigen Passauer Burggrafen Ulrich, erwarb er große Besitzungen südwestlich von Passau, im Rottal und im Isengau. Mit seiner zweiten Ehe mit der reichen Adelheid von Lechsgemünd, Witwe des verstorbenen Markwart von Marquartstein, erwarb Engelbert weitere Besitzungen im Chiemgau. Aus diesen Besitzungen schuf Engelbert die Grafschaft Kraiburg-Marquartstein und wurde Vogt zu Baumburg. Auf dem strategisch günstigen Hügel über dem Ort Kraiburg errichtete er um das Jahr 1100 eine wehrhafte Burg, welche das Zentrum dieser Grafschaft bildete.

1091 holte Engelbert im Auftrag seines Vaters aus Hirsau Mönche zur Besiedlung des neu errichteten Hausklosters St. Paul, 1099 wurde er dessen Vogt. 1100 wurden ihm vom Gurker Gegenbischof Berthold zwei Trixener Burgen übertragen, 1106 der Markt Friesach.

1106 wurde Engelbert durch Heinrich IV. als Nachfolger des Moosburgers Burkhard mit der Markgrafschaft Istrien belehnt. Diese sollte sich nun bis ins Jahr 1173 in Spanheimer Besitz befinden. Diese Belehnung legte den Grundstock für die reichen und ausgedehnten Besitzungen im benachbarten Krain. Ebenso ist darin die gestiegene Bedeutung der Spanheimer zu erkennen, da der Kaiser, der Engelbert I. noch der Grafschaft im Pustertal enthoben hatte, nun um die Gunst der mächtigen Spanheimer warb; wie es scheint erfolgreich, denn Engelbert II. fand sich bald im Gefolge Heinrichs V. und nahm am 13. April 1111 an dessen Kaiserkrönung teil.

Am 23. September 1122 wurde der Investiturstreit des Kaisers und des Papstes durch das Wormser Konkordat beigelegt. Engelbert II. und dessen Bruder Hartwig I., Bischof von Regensburg, nahmen an der Zeremonie als Zeugen teil.

Nach dem Tode seines Bruders Heinrich, der am 14. Dezember 1123 verstorben war, folgte ihm Engelbert als Herzog von Kärnten. Aus diesem Grund teilte er seine Besitzungen unter seinen Söhnen auf und trat ihnen die meisten Titel ab. Im Jahre 1135 verzichtete Engelbert II. jedoch auf das Amt des Herzogs und Kaiser Lothar III. belehnte seinen Sohn Ulrich I. Anschließend trat Engelbert in das Benediktinerkloster Seeon im Chiemgau ein. Dort verstarb er im Jahre 1141 als Mönch und wurde dort auch begraben.

Er war – anders als sein Vater – treue Salier-Stütze, mit seinen Brüdern scharfer Gegner der Salzburger Erzbischöfe und Gurker und Bamberger Bischöfe und stritt oft mit den Patriarchen von Aquileia.

Familie [Bearbeiten]

Engelbert war verheiratet mit Uta, Tochter des Grafen Ulrich von Passau († 1099) und der Adelheid von Lechsgemünd, Witwe (seit ca. 1085) nach Markwart von Marquartstein.

Kinder:

   * Ulrich I. († 1144), Herzog von Kärnten
   * Engelbert III. († 1173), Markgraf von Istrien (1124–1171), Markgraf von Tuszien
   * Heinrich († 1169), Bischof von Troyes (1145–1169)

   * Adelheid († um 1178), Äbtissin von Göss

Engelbert II was the Count of Sponheim from 1096 and Margrave of Istria and Carniola from sometime between 1101 and 1107 until 1124. In 1108 he was founder of the county of Kraiburg in Bavaria. In 1124, he was raised to the Duchy of Carinthia and held it until his retirement in 1135.

His younger brother Henry III was created Duke of Carinthia in 1122, and Engelbert succeeded him in 1124, having already replaced Poppo II in Carniola.

In February 1111, Engelbert stood as guarantor of Henry V at his imperial coronation.

Engelbert married Uta, daughter of Ulric of Passau. Together they were the parents of the 7 children, including our ancestor Matilda.
