Siegfried of Luxembourg

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Siegfried or Sigefroy (c.922–28 Oct 998) is considered the first count of Luxembourg. He was actually count in the Moselgau and the Ardennes. He was also the advocate of the abbeys of Saint-Maximin de Trêves and Saint-Willibrod d'Echternach. He was a son of the Count Palatine Wigeric of Lotharingia and Cunigunda. He is the founder of the House of Luxembourg, a cadet branch of the House of Ardennes.

He had possessions from his father in Upper Lorraine. At the centre of his dominions he constructed the fortress of Luxembourg in 963. A town soon grew up around the castle. Though he used the title of count, the title "count of Luxembourg" was only applied to William some 150 years later.

Around 950, he married Hedwig of Nordgau (937–992), daughter of Eberhard IV of Nordgau. They had the following issue:

Henry I of Luxembourg Siegfried, cited in 985 Frederick I, Count of Salm and Luxembourg, married Ermentrude of Gleiberg, daughter of Heribert I, Count of Gleiberg and Ermentrud (Imizi). Thierry II, Bishop of Metz Adalberon, canon of Trier Poloaner, count in the Moselgau, married Lolital Gislebert (d.1004), count in the Moselgau Cunigunda, married Henry II, Holy Roman Emperor Eve, married Gerard, Count of Metz Ermentrude, abbess Luitgarde, married Arnulf, Count of Holland a daughter, married Thietmar a son, married Mietzer

-------------------- Sigefroy d'Ardennes, né vers 922, mort en 998, fut le premier comte d'un territoire qui allait devenir le comté de Luxembourg. Il était fils de Wigéric, comte de Bigdau, puis comte palatin de Lotharingie, et de Cunégonde.

De son père, il reçut des biens en Haute-Lotharingie. Afin de les protéger efficacement, il fit construire en 963 au centre de ses domaines une forteresse, qui est le château de Luxembourg. Une ville se créa rapidement autour du château.

Il portait le titre de comte, mais ce fut un de ses descendants, Guillaume qui s'intitula 150 ans plus tard comte de Luxembourg. Il fut également avoué des abbaye Saint-Maximin de Trêves et Saint-Willibrod d'Echternach.

Il épousa vers 950 Hedwige de Nordgau (937 † 992), fille d'Ebberhard IV , comte de Nordgau -------------------- Död: 993 Family: 1 Hedwig

Getrouwd met: Hedwig N.N. (van de Noordgouw ?), overl. 13-12-ca. 993.

=========================

Ondersteunde zijn bisschoppelijke broer Adalbert van Metz (zie hieronder), volgeling van Otto III bij diens machtsstrijd om de kroon; was door sterke vervlechting van zijn bezit met de kerk voortdurend in strijd met allerlei bisschoppen in zijn gebied (o.a. Saarburg), werd door hen regelmatig gevangen gezet en zelfs tijdelijk verbannen; ruilde met het klooster St.-Maximin goederen waardoor hij Luxemburg verwierf (17-4-963) en bouwde op een strategische plek een burcht op de plaats van de huidige stad Luxemburg; deze burcht werd geleidelijk het middelpunt van een groot landencomplex dat zich tot ver buiten de grenzen van het huidige groothertogdom uitstrekte. Zij wordt soms verm. als dr. van Everhard IV van de Noordgouw en Luitgard van Lotharingen (nrs. 7466402880/81), maar dan zou hij met zijn nicht zijn geh. hetgeen tamelijk onwaarsch. is.

Ancient and medieval periods The earliest human remains found in present-day Luxembourg date from about 5140 BC, but little is known about the people who first populated the area. Two Belgic tribes, the Treveri and Mediomatrici, inhabited the country from about 450 BC until the Roman conquest of 53 BC. The occupation of the country by the Franks in the 5th century AD marked the beginning of the Middle Ages in the locality. St. Willibrord played a very important role in the area's Christianization in the late 7th century. He founded the Benedictine abbey of Echternach, which became an important cultural centre for the region. The area successively formed part of the Frankish kingdom of Austrasia, of the Holy Roman Empire under Charlemagne and Louis I the Pious, and then of the kingdom of Lotharingia. Luxembourg became an independent entity in 963, when Siegfried, Count de Ardennes, exchanged his lands for a small but strategically placed Roman castle lying along the Alzette River. This castle became the cradle of Luxembourg, whose name is itself derived from that of the castle, Lucilinburhuc ("Little Fortress"). Siegfried's successors enlarged their possessions by conquests, treaties, marriages, and inheritances. About 1060 Conrad, a descendant of Siegfried, became the first to take the title of count of Luxembourg. Conrad's great-granddaughter, Countess Ermesinde, was a notable ruler whose great-grandson, Henry IV, became Holy Roman emperor as Henry VII in 1308. This Luxembourg dynasty was continued on the imperial throne in the persons of Charles IV, Wenceslas, and Sigismund. In 1354 the emperor Charles IV made the county a duchy. In 1443 Elizabeth of Görlitz, duchess of Luxembourg and niece of the Holy Roman emperor Sigismund, was forced to cede the duchy to Philip III the Good, duke of Burgundy.

He was a son of the Count Palatine Wigeric of Lotharingia and Cunigunda. He is the founder of the House of Luxembourg, a cadet branch of the House of Ardennes.

He had possessions from his father in Upper Lorraine. At the centre of his dominions he constructed the fortress of Luxembourg in 963. A town soon grew up around the castle. Though he used the title of count, the title "count of Luxembourg" was only applied to William some 150 years later.

-------------------- Sigefroy d'Ardennes, né vers 922, mort en 998, fut le premier comte d'un territoire qui allait devenir le comté de Luxembourg. Il était fils de Wigéric, comte de Bigdau, puis comte palatin de Lotharingie, et de Cunégonde.

De son père, il reçut des biens en Haute-Lotharingie. Afin de les protéger efficacement, il fit construire en 963 au centre de ses domaines une forteresse, qui est le château de Luxembourg. Une ville se créa rapidement autour du château.

Il portait le titre de comte, mais ce fut un de ses descendants, Guillaume qui s'intitula 150 ans plus tard comte de Luxembourg. Il fut également avoué des abbaye Saint-Maximin de Trêves et Saint-Willibrod d'Echternach.

Siegfried or Sigefroy (c.922–28 Oct 998) is considered the first count of Luxembourg. He was actually count in the Moselgau and the Ardennes. He was also the advocate of the abbeys of Saint-Maximin de Trêves and Saint-Willibrod d'Echternach. He was a son of the Count Palatine Wigeric of Lotharingia and Cunigunda. He is the founder of the House of Luxembourg, a cadet branch of the House of Ardennes.

He had possessions from his father in Upper Lorraine. At the centre of his dominions he constructed the fortress of Luxembourg in 963. A town soon grew up around the castle. Though he used the title of count, the title "count of Luxembourg" was only applied to William some 150 years later.

Around 950, he married Hedwig of Nordgau (937–992), daughter of Eberhard IV of Nordgau. They had the following issue:

  • Henry I of Luxembourg
  • Siegfried, cited in 985
  • Frederick I, Count of Salm and Luxembourg, married Ermentrude of Gleiberg, daughter of Heribert I, Count of Gleiberg and Ermentrud (Imizi).
  • Thierry II, Bishop of Metz
  • Adalberon, canon of Trier
  • Poloaner, count in the Moselgau, married Lolital
  • Gislebert (d.1004), count in the Moselgau
  • Cunigunda, married Henry II, Holy Roman Emperor
  • Eve, married Gerard, Count of Metz
  • Ermentrude, abbess
  • Luitgarde, married Arnulf, Count of Holland
  • a daughter, married Thietmar
  • a son, married Mietzer

Graf Siegfried I. (* um 918/929[1]; † wohl 28. Oktober 998[2]) gilt als Gründer von Luxemburg: den Namen „Graf von Luxemburg“ führt er jedoch nicht[3], die Bezeichnung ist erstmals im Jahr 1083 bezeugt[4] Inhaltsverzeichnis [Anzeigen]

Leben [Bearbeiten]

Er war wahrscheinlich der Sohn des Pfalzgrafen Wigerich von Lothringen (Wigeriche), Graf im Bidgau, sicher aber der Kunigunde, einer Enkelin des Königs Ludwig der Stammler Tochter der Ermentrud und vielleicht des Grafen Reginar I..

Siegfried tritt erstmals um 950 auf, falls man ihn nicht mit Kunigundes Sohn Sigebert gleichsetzt, der einzig 942 erwähnt wird, wobei man davon ausgeht, dass es sich in dem entsprechenden Dokument um einen Schreibfehler handelt[5]. Zu der Zeit (950) war Siegfried Laienabt des Klosters Echternach[6]. Er ist 982 als Graf im Moselgau nachgewiesen[7], darüber hinaus Vogt der Reichsabtei St. Maximin zu Trier und des Klosters Echternach [8] (nachdem er als Laienabt wohl abgetreten war). Am 17. April 963 erwarb er die Burg Lucilinburhuc (in der heutigen Stadt Luxemburg an der Alzette) im Tausch gegen Ländereien in Feulen bei Ettelbrück (Sauer) mit dem Kloster St. Maximin[9]. Um 964 beerbte er seinen Bruder Ardennengrafen Giselbert[10]. 964 erwarb er vom Trierer Erzbischof Heinrich Ländereien bei Saarburg mit dem Inselberg, auf dem sich die Saarburg befand[11]. 984 kämpfte er bei den Auseinandersetzungen um die Nachfolge des Kaisers Otto II. in Lothringen auf der Seite Ottos III., geriet in die Gefangenschaft der Gegenseite in Person des westfränkischen Königs Lothar. Nach dessen Tod 986 gelang Siegfried die Flucht.[12] Am 26. Oktober 997 wird Siegfried letztmalig als lebend erwähnt.[6]

In der Legende ist die Person Siegfrieds mit der Sagengestalt Melusine verknüpft.[13] Ehe und Nachkommen [Bearbeiten]

Siegfried heiratete um 950/963[14] Hadwig (* um 935/945[15]; † 13. Dezember nach 993[16]), deren Herkunft unbekannt ist[17]. Das Paar hatte elf (bezeugte) Kinder[18]:

   * Heinrich († 1026), Graf in den Ardennen, Vogt von St. Maximin, 1004-1009 und 1017-1024 Herzog von Bayern
   * Siegfried, 985 bezeugt, vielleicht Stammvater der Grafen von Northeim (siehe dort)
   * Giselbert (X 1004), Graf im Moselgau
   * Friedrich († 1019), Graf im Moselgau, Vogt Stablo und Malmedy, Graf im Hessengau[19]
   * Dietrich († 1047), Bischof von Metz
   * Adalbero (†nach 1037) Elekt von Trier
   * Liutgard († nach 1005); ∞ 980 Graf Arnulf von Holland (X 993) (Gerulfinger)
   * Kunigunde die Heilige († 1033); ∞ 1001 Heinrich II. der Heilige († 1024), Herzog von Bayern, 1002 deutscher König, 1014 Kaiser (Liudolfinger)
   * Eva († nach 1029); ∞ Gerhard Graf von Metz († 1021/23) (Matfriede)
   * Ermentrude, Äbtissin
   * Tochter; ∞ Graf Thietmar

Siegfrieds Herkunft [Bearbeiten]

Dass Kunigunde seine Mutter ist, ist gesichert[20]. Wer sein Vater ist, ist nicht belegt, erschließt sich lediglich aus den Ehen seiner Mutter, wobei die zweite, die sie nach dem Tod Wigerichs mit dem Grafen Richwin von Verdun schloss, als kinderlos angesehen wird. René Klein verfasste im Jahr 1998 eine Arbeit, mit der er nachzuweisen versuchte, dass Kunigunde nach dem Tod Richwins mit Giselbert, dem späteren Herzog von Lothringen, eine dritte Ehe einging, aus der Siegfried stammt (zu den Details siehe Kunigunde (Enkelin Ludwigs des Stammlers)).
