About Ordulf - Otto III von Sachsen, Herzog

Bernhard

Ordulf av Sachsen (født 1022, død 28. mars 1072), også kalt Otto, latinisert Orthilius, av huset Billung, var en av sønnene til hertug Bernhard II av Sachsen og Eilica av Schweinfurt. Ordulf etterfulgte faren som hertug i 1059 og hans tid som regent ble preget av striden mot venderne, en kamp han førte sammen med de kristne danskene. I 1061 bygde han seg en borg i Hamburg, den såkalte Wasserburg (også kalt Neue Burg) rett utenfor byvollen. Dette var en oppblomstringstid for Hamburg, og byen var året før blitt delt slik at erkebiskopen regjerte gamlebyen (Altstadt) og billungerhertugene den nye by (Neustadt). Hamburg var på nytt blitt utgangspunkt for misjon både mot øst og nord.

Det området som på 1000-tallet utgjorde Sachsen lå betydelig lenger nordvest i Tyskland enn den moderne delstaten Sachsen. Det lå hovedsakelig mellom elvene Rhinens og Elbes nedre løp og dekket områder som i moderne tid faller under Westfalen, Niedersachsen, Bremen, Hamburg, Holstein og den nordlige del av Sachsen-Anhalt.

Ordulf hadde i november 1042 giftet seg med Ulvhild (på tysk kjent som Wulfhild), datter av Olav den hellige og halvsøster av den da regjerende kong Magnus den Gode av Norge (1035-1047) og Danmark (1042-1047). Dette ekteskapet styrket alliansen med skandinavene. Med henne fikk han sønnen Magnus, som etterfulgte ham som hertug. Før Magnus ble hertug drev han gjennom avsettelsen av erkebiskop Adalbert av Hamburg og Bremen i 1066 fordi han hadde utnyttet sin herskermakt til å berike kirken med krongods.

Ordulf hadde gjennom Magnus-grenen mange etterkommere, bl.a. i fyrstehuset Oldenburg, slik at via den linjen kan det nåværende norske kongehuset regne sine aner tilbake til sagatidens norske konger.

Ulvhild døde den 24. mai 1071. Ordulf ble da ennå i samme år gift for annen gang med Gertrud av Haldensleben, datter av grev Konrad, enke etter grev Fredrik av Formbach. Med henne fikk han sønnen Bernhard. Bernhard døde etter et fall fra sin hest den 15. juli i Lüneburg i et ikke nærmere angitt år, kanskje i 1083.

Ordulf ble begravet i St.-Michaelis-kirken i Lüneburg.

Ordulf, Duke of Saxony

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Ordulf (sometimes Otto) (c. 1022–28 March 1072) was the duke of Saxony from 1059, when he succeeded his father Bernard II, until his death. He was a member of the Billung family.

His entire reign was occupied by wars with the Wends. He was allied with Denmark, which alliance he strengthened by marrying (1042) Wulfhild (died 24 May 1071), the daughter of Olaf II of Norway.

He had a second wife in Gertrude of Haldensleben, daughter of a Count Conrad, who was imprisoned in Mainz in 1076 and died 21 February 1116. By Wulfhild he had a son named Magnus who succeeded him. He had a son named Bernard by Gertrude who died of a fall from a horse at Lüneburg on 15 July in some unknown year. Ordulf himself is buried the church of Saint Michael at Lüneburg.

--------------------

Another name for Ordulf was Otto of Brunswick.

General Notes:

Ordulf was married a second time, with Gertrud of Nordmark who died in 1116.

BILLUNG DYNASTY:

The primary ruling dynasty in Saxony in the 10th and 11th centuries. It was founded by Hermann Billung, who in 936 received from the German king (and future emperor) Otto I a march, or border territory, on the lower Elbe River to be held against the pagan Slavic Wends. In 961 Otto granted Hermann the Saxon ducal title, which on Hermann's death (973) passed to his son and thereafter to his descendants, who continued the struggle against the Slavs.

Although the family extended its conquests toward the Oder River, thus preparing these territories for Christianization, their lands consisted of only the northeastern part of the former stem duchy of Saxony. Hermann's son Bernard I (d. 1011) obtained guarantees of the special privileges and customs of the Saxons from the emperor Henry II; Bernard II (d. 1059) obtained similar guarantees from the emperor Conrad II. Both Bernard II and his son Ordulf (d. 1072) had to defend their territories against the encroachments of Adalbert, archbishop of Bremen. The family came to embody the Saxon national resentment toward the Salian kings and emperors Henry III and particularly Henry IV, who wanted to reestablish imperial authority in Saxony. In August 1106, with the death of Magnus Billung, the family died out.

Noted events in his life were:

• Acceded: Duke of Saxony, 1059.

Wikopedia:

Ordulf (auch Otto genannt) (* 1022; † 28. März 1072) aus der Familie der Billunger war Herzog von Sachsen von 1059 bis 1072.

Er folgte seinem Vater Bernhard II. nach dessen Tod im Jahre 1059 als Herzog. Seine Regierungszeit war beherrscht vom Kampf gegen die Wenden, der zusammen mit den christlichen Dänen geführt wurde. Die Heirat Ordulfs mit der norwegischen Prinzessin Wulfhild stärkte dieses Bündnis.

Ordulf wurde in der St.-Michaelis-Kirche in Lüneburg beigesetzt.

Nachkommen [Bearbeiten]

Ordulf war zweimal verheiratet, mit beiden Frauen hatte er einen Sohn. Seine erste Frau war seit November 1042 Wulfhild von Norwegen († 24. Mai 1071), eine Tochter des Königs Olav II. Haraldsson. Beider Kind war sein Nachfolger, der spätere Herzog Magnus. Eine zweite Ehe schloss er mit Gertrud von Haldensleben, einer Tochter des Grafen Konrad und Witwe eines Friedrich (wohl von Formbach), die 1076 in Mainz gefangen gesetzt wurde und am 21. Februar 1116 starb. Beider Sohn war Bernhard, der am 15. Juli eines unbekannten Jahres in Lüneburg nach einem Sturz vom Pferd starb.
