About Folchaide von Salzburg

From German Wikipedia:

http://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Folchaid

Folchaid (7./8. Jahrhundert) war die Gattin des bayerischen Herzogs Theodo II. Sie stammte wahrscheinlich aus der Umgebung von Worms, und bei ihren Eltern handelte es sich um Theutacar und Freiheida, und ihre Schwester, Uta, war Nonne. Mit Theodo II. hatte Folchaid mehrere Kinder: Theudebert, Theudebald, Grimoald und Tassilo.

In English:

Folchaid (from the 7th or 8th century) was the wife of Theodosius II, Duke of Bavaria. She probably came from the vicinity of Worms. Her parents were Theutacar and Freiheida, and her sister Uta was a nun. With Theodo II (second husband), Folchaid had several children: Theudebert , Theudebald , Grimoald, and Tassilo .

From Karl-Heinz Schreiber's "Die Genealogie der Franken und Frankreichs:

http://www.mittelalter-genealogie.de/agilolfinger/folchaid_herzogin_von_bayern.html

Folchaid, Herzogin von Bayern

Tochter des N.N. (RUPERTINER? ROBERTIAN?)

Störmer Wilhelm: Seite 18, "Adelsgruppen"

Dass Folchaid Theodos Frau gewesen ist, wird neuerdings bezweifelt, da man mit gutem Gründen eine Regintrud als Gemahlin Theodos annimmt. Man glaubt, Folchaid sei die Gattin des Theodo-Sohnes Theodebert gewesen; im Salzburger Verbrüderungsbuch sei der Name irrtümlich nach oben verschoben worden. Das ist meines Erachtens keineswegs zwingend, denn Theodo kann ja durchaus zweimal verheiratet gewesen sein. Interessanter wäre jedenfalls zu erfahren, woher diese Folchaid kam. In diesem Zusammenhang muß eine große Schenkung (Besitz in 8 Orten im Rhein-Neckar-Gebiet und 30 Manicipien) an das Kloster Lorsch im Jahre 779 auffallen, in der eine Folcheith begegnet. Tradentin ist eine Vda deo sacrata, die offenbar eine Nonne war. Sie gibt in der Urkunde ihre Familienmitglieder an:

Theutacar oo Freiheida

Vda Folcheith

Unter den Zeugen dieses Rechtsgeschäfts begegnet nicht nur der in Bayern von bedeutenden Personen getragene Name Orendil, sondern auch der AGILOLFINGER-Name Hucbert. Der Name der Tradentin Vda aber ist derselbe, den die Tochter Herzog Theodos und möglicherweise auch Folchaids trägt. Wir erinnern uns, dass auch der heilige Rupert, der unter Herzog Theodo das kirchliche Leben in Salzburg erneuerte, aus diesem Wormser Raum kam, wie E. Zöllner gezeigt hat. Mehr als Indizien für die Herkunft der Herzogsgattin Folchaid können wir zunächst nicht geben, aber sie sind immerhin auffällig.

(Admittedly) very poorly translated into English:

The assertion that Folchaid was Theodosius' wife was recently question, since there are good reasons to assume that Regintrude held this role. It is believed that Folchaid was the wife of Theodosius' son, Theodebert, as in the book of the Salzburg brotherhood, the name had been moved up by mistake. In any case, it may be that Theodo was married twice. It would be interesting to know from where this Folchaid came. It was from her that a large donation (8 possessions in the Rhine-Neckar area and 30 in Manicipien) was given to the Lorsch Monastery in 779. She later became a nun. These are known to be part of her family:

Theutacar, m. Freiheida

Vda Folcheith

This transaction provides not only a connection to Bavaria through the Orendil name, but also the Algofinger name Hucbert. The name may have been passed down to the daughter of Duke Theodosius. Again, under Duke Theodo, St. Rupert created the church in the renewed Salzburg, and had come from the region of Worms, as had E., who had been a tax collector. This is nothing more than circumstantial evidence of the origin of the Duke's wife Folchaid, the best that could be done, but it is nevertheless striking.

Ben M. Angel notes: With reference to her having come from Salzburg, if she were born in the seventh century, this is likely not the case. From the English Wikipedia page on Salzburg:

---

Around 15 BC the separate settlements were merged into one city by the Roman Empire. At this time the city was called Juvavum and was awarded the status of a Roman municipium in 45 AD. Juvavum developed into an important town of the Roman province of Noricum. After the collapse of the Norican frontier, Juvavum declined so sharply that by the late 7th century it had become a "near ruin".

The Life of Saint Rupert credits the 8th-century saint with the city's rebirth. When Theodo of Bavaria asked Rupert to become bishop c. 700, Rupert reconnoitered the river for the site of his basilica. Rupert chose Juvavum, ordained priests, and annexed the manor Piding. Rupert named the city "Salzburg". He traveled to evangelise among pagans.

The name Salzburg means "Salt Castle". It derives its name from the barges' carrying salt on the Salzach River, which were subject to a toll in the 8th century, as was customary for many communities and cities on European rivers.

As suggested by Schreiber's passage and German Wikipedia, she probably came from Worms. She probably saw the restoration of Salzburg in her lifetime. And she probably lived longer than 20 years, given that she's credited with 4-6 children...
