Many people list him as Hugo (Hugh) VI or VI/IV, but the Foundation for Medieval Genealogy lists him as Hugo VIII Graf im Nordgau und zu Egisheim (son of Hugo VII) and also Count of Egisheim, which may account for the second numbering. He apparently also acquired control over Dagsburg (Dachsburg) upon his marriage.

His son Bruno became POPE LEO IX in 1049.

HUGO [VIII]

HUGO [VIII], son of HUGO [VII] "Raucus" Graf im Nordgau & his wife --- ([970/75]). The Notitiæ Altorfenses names "comitis Eberhardi sive comitis Hugonis vel istorum fratrum Gerhardi et Maffridi". His birth date range is estimated from the birth of his son Pope Leo in 1002. Graf im Nordgau und zu Egisheim.

m HEILWIG, daughter of --- (-1046). The Vita Leonis names "patre Hugone, matre Heilewide" as parents of Pope Leo IX.

Hugo [VIII] & his wife had [eight] children:

1. GERHARD [I] (-killed in battle 1038). His parentage is confirmed by the charter dated 18 Nov 1050 under which Pope Leo IX donated property to Heiligenkreuz Kloster in Woffenheim, near Egisheim, naming "patris mei Hugonis et matris meæ Heilwigdis, amborumque fratrum meorum Gerardi et Hugonis…iam defunctorum" and "nepoti meo Heinrico, castrum Egensheim". Graf von Egisheim. m KUNIZA, neptis of RUDOLF III King of Burgundy, daughter of ---. She is recorded in Europäische Stammtafeln as neptis of RUDOLF III King of Burgundy but the primary source on which this is based has not yet been identified. 1038.

2. [MATHILDE . The Gesta Episcoporum Tullensium names "Udonis" as successor of Bruno as Bishop of Toul and "pater eius comes Riquinus ex Reubariorum regione ortus, mater Mathildis ex Alemannia…genus". The wife of Richwin may have been the daughter of Hugo [VIII], if it is correct that her son Louis was the same person as Louis Comte de Mousson, and also if it is correct that Pope Leo IX was the maternal uncle of the latter as suggested by Picard. If this is correct, Mathilde would have been one of her parents´ older children considering the probable birth date of her son Louis. m RICHWIN Comte de Charpeigne, son of LOUIS [I] & his wife --- ([980/90]-after 2 May 1028).]

3. HUGO [IX] (-[1046/18 Nov 1049]). His parentage is confirmed by the charter dated 18 Nov 1050 under which Pope Leo IX donated property to Heiligenkreuz Kloster in Woffenheim, near Egisheim, naming "patris mei Hugonis et matris meæ Heilwigdis, amborumque fratrum meorum Gerardi et Hugonis…iam defunctorum" and "nepoti meo Heinrico, castrum Egensheim"[228]. Graf von Dachsburg. m MATHILDE, daughter of ---. Pope Leo IX donated property to Hesse by charter dated 1050 which names his brother Hugues, Hugues's wife Mathilde, and their son Henri "nostri quondam nepotis"[229]. Carutti identifies her as Mathilde, daughter of Conrad I King of Burgundy & his second wife Mathilde de France [Carolingian], but he cites no primary source on which this hypothesis is based[230]. Hugo [IX] & his wife had two children:

a) HEINRICH [I] (-28 Jun [before 1050]). Pope Leo IX donated property to Hesse by charter dated 1050 which names his brother Hugues, Hugues's wife Mathilde, and their son Henri "nostri quondam nepotis"[231]. Graf von Egisheim und Dachsburg.

- see below.

b) GERBERGA . The primary source which confirms her parentage has not yet been identified. Abbess of Hesse[232].

4. BRUNO (21 Jun 1002-Rome 19 Apr 1054). The Chronicle of Alberic de Trois-Fontaines names "sancti Leonis pape" as son of "comes Hugo de Daburg". The Annales Argentinenses record the birth of "Leo Papa, qui et Bruno, de castro Egenheim" was born in 1002. The Annalista Saxo names Bruno "Conradi inperatoris consobrinus…oriundus de Alsatia ex castello…Egenesheim", when recording his election as Pope. Canon at Toul. Bishop of Toul 1027/1051. The Chronicle of Alberic de Trois-Fontaines records the election of "Bruno Tullensis episcopus…filius comitis Hugonis Daburgensis" as Pope Leo IX. Pope LEO IX 1049.

5. ADELHEID . Her origin is deduced from the Annalista Saxo naming "comitem Adalbertum" as son of the sister of Pope Leo IX, and more specifically the Historia Hirsaugiensis Monasterii naming "Leo papa avunculus eiusdem Adalberti [de Kalwa]", but her name is given in neither of these sources. m ADALBERT [I] Graf im Ufgau [Calw], son of --- (-[1046/49]).

6. GERTRUD (-21 Jul 1077). The Annales Stadenses refers to the mother of "Ida [de Elsthorpe]" as "sororis Leonis papa qui et Bruno". The Libro Memoriarum Sancti Blasii records the death in Jul 1077 of "Ghertrudis marchionissa senior". m LIUDOLF Markgraf von Friesland, son of BRUNO [I] [von Braunschweig] & his wife Gisela of Swabia ([1103/05]-23 Apr 1038).

7. [daughter . A possible daughter of Hugo [VIII] is shown as possible wife of Otto in Europäische Stammtafeln, but the primary source on which this is based has not so far been identified. m OTTO Graf im Deutzgau, son of EZZO Pfalzgraf of Lotharingia & his wife Mathilde of Germany (-Tomburg 7 Sep 1047). He succeeded in 1035 as OTTO Pfalzgraf von Lothringen. He relinquished the Pfalzgrafschaft in 1045 when he was installed as OTTO Duke of Swabia.]

8. [235][GEPA . The primary source which confirms her parentage has not yet been identified. Abbess of St Quirin at Neuss [1050].]
