About ÁRPÁD(házi) Zsófia - Sophie, Princess of Hungary



SOPHIA ([1045/50]-18 Jun 1095, bur Lüneburg St Michaelis).

SOPHIA ([1045/50]-18 Jun 1095, bur Lüneburg St Michaelis). The Annalista Saxo names "sororem Ladizlai regis Ungarie Sophiam" as wife of Ulrich, and in a later passage records her second marriage[479]. Sophia has therefore generally been assumed to be the daughter of Béla I King of Hungary[480]. According to Wegener[481], she was the daughter of King Béla by Tuta von Formbach, whom he suggests was the king's second wife. His argument is based on connections with the monastery of Suben (near Schärding in Upper Austria), founded in 1040. He explains that Tuta is named in 1153 as "die Gründerin von Suben, Königin", and that in a later document at the monastery she is more specifically referred to as "Königin von Ungarn". The author makes the connection with Sophia by highlighting the burial at Suben of Udalschalk Graf im Lurngau and his wife Adelheid. He identifies the latter as Sophia's daughter by her first husband who, he suggests, married Udalschalk after the death of her earlier husband Friedrich I Domvogt von Regensburg. The major difficulty with this hypothesis is Sophia's own estimated birth date. She must have been born before [1050], at the very latest, given the birth of her three (possibly four) children by her first husband, who died in early 1070. If Sophia was King Béla's daughter, her mother must have been his Polish wife who, according to Europäische Stammtafeln[482], died after 1059. An alternative possibility is that she was Tuta's daughter, but by another king of Hungary. Europäische Stammtafeln[483] shows Tuta as the wife of Péter Orseolo King of Hungary. Contemporary political realities suggest that a prominent marriage for a daughter of the disgraced King Péter is unlikely. Until more information comes to light, it is safer to assume that Sophia was the daughter of King Béla and [Ryksa] of Poland, and that another (so far unidentified) factor explains the apparent connection between Tuta and Sophia through Suben monastery. Sophia's second marriage is confirmed by the Chronicon Sancti Michaelis Luneburgensis which names "Sophia filia regis Ungarorum Wadreslai" as wife of "Magnus dux"[484], although King László was her brother not her father. Sophia's second marriage presumably took place soon after the death of her first husband in Mar 1070 as Duke Magnus was imprisoned later in 1070. The Annalista Saxo records the death of "Sophia quoque ductrix…XIV Kal Iunii"[485].

Sophia van Hongarije (±1050 - 18 juni 1095) was een dochter van koning Béla I van Hongarije en van Richezza van Polen. Sophia was verloofd met Willem IV van Meißen, maar deze stierf nog voor hun huwelijk onderweg om zijn bruid op te halen. Zij huwde dan een eerste maal rond 1062 met Ulrich I van Weimar, markgraaf van Carniola, graaf van Istrië (-1070) en een tweede maal rond 1071 met Magnus van Saksen.

Haar kinderen waren:

  1. Ulrich II van Weimar (1064-1112)

  3. Richardis van Weimar, gehuwd met Otto II van Scheyern

i) [SOPHIA (-26 Jun [1110], bur Zwiefalten). Europäische Stammtafeln[442] shows Sophia, wife of Graf Poppo who was ancestor of the Grafen von Berg, as daughter of King Salomon. The source on which this is based has not so far been identified, but it appears unlikely chronologically. The granddaughter of Poppo and Sophia, Salome (second wife of Bolesław III Duke of Poland), was born "before 1101" which, assuming that she was her parents' oldest child (which is not known), would place the birth of her father in [1080] at the latest. If it is assumed that her paternal grandmother bore her own first child at the early age of 15, this would still place Sophia's birth in [1065] at the latest, when the wife of King Salamon was only about 11 years old. Until further evidence comes to light, it is assumed that the Hungarian affiliation of Poppo's wife was originally proposed as a hypothesis to explain the unusual first name "Salome" born by Sophie's daughter and granddaughter. However, the necrologies of Swabian monasteries show that the name "Salome", although not common, did exist on its own, not as a female form of "Salamon", during this period. m POPPO Graf, Herr von Roggenstein, son of --- (-11 Aug [1110], bur Zwiefalten).]
