- Grandfather: BEZZELIN [Bertilo] (-15 Jul ). m [LIUTGARD], daughter of ---, patruus of EBERHARD [IV] "dem Seligen" Graf von Nellenburg.
- Father: BERTHOLD (-Limburg 5/6 Nov 1078, bur Hirsau). m firstly RICHWARA, daughter of --- (-before ). According to Wegener, she was Richwara of Swabia, daughter of Hermann IV Duke of Swabia [Babenberg] & his wife Adelaida di Susa. However, this seems unlikely from a chronological point of view.
