About Gotfrid, duke of the Alemannians

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gotfrid

http://fmg.ac/Projects/MedLands/SWABIA.htm#_Toc155861484

Gottfrid (?-709), Duke of the Alemannians. His parentage is speculative, but he is known to have belonged to the Agilolfings. Some sources call him the 13th Merovingian Duke of Alemannia, which seems to be a wishful exaggeration of the evidence.

Controversy About His Wife

"There is no direct evidence regarding Gottfried's wife or wives." Stewart Baldwin summarizes the evidence as follows:

"The suggestion that he [Gottfrid] was married to a daughter of duke Theodo (II not V) is based on a string of conjectures:

1. It has been conjectured that duke Odilo of Bavaria was a son of Gottfried. This conjecture has been accepted by many scholars, and I am inclined to regard it as probably true, but the evidence is not that strong.

2. Assuming that the first conjecture is correct, it has been conjectured on top of that that Odilo's mother was an Agilolfing, in order to explain his possession of the duchy of Bavaria and to explain the Agilolfing name that he gave to his son Thassilo.

3. Assuming that the second conjecture is correct, it has been conjectured on top of that that Gottfried's wife was a daughter of Theodo II, Agilolfing duke of Bavaria. Based on the same string of guesses, Settipani has conjectured that Gottfried's wife was a sister of Theodo rather than his daughter. Although both conjectures are based on very slender evidence, Settipani's version is chronologically more plausible.

To accept the above line [omitted here], you would have to accept all of the above string of conjectures, and accept in addition that Huoching and Odilo had the same mother, when we have no evidence whether or not Gottfried was married more than once."

Unattributed biography

Godefroy Duke of Alamannia - ruled the region of western Europe, on both sides of the Upper Rhine (modern E. France and W. Germany) home of the Alamanni in the time of Clovis I, a Frankish Province, later in 1000 it became a Duchy. The Alamanni (having lived by the Lake Laman) were of the Sueva stock on the upper Rhine River in southern Germany.

At the death of Godefroy of the Alamanni in 730, his kingdom was joined to the Frankish empire as a dukedom. His son, Houching was the 1st dux. (duke)

Godefroy was seen 679-708 and dead in 709. The Alamanni were defeated (486) and conquered by the Franks under Clovis (q.v.) in 502/507; Frankish administration (Counts) and Christianity were introduced. The territory of the Alemanni remained a distinctive administrative unit, the Duchy of Alamannia, (Swabia) which stretched along both banks of the Rhine from the Alps to Strassburg or beyond.

Wikipedia (English)

Gotfrid, Gotefrid, or Gottfried (Latin: Gotfridus or Cotefredus; died 709) was the Duke of Alemannia in the late seventh century and until his death. He was of the house of the Agilolfing, which was the dominant ruling family in Bavaria.

In a document dated to the year 700 in Cannstatt, Gotfrid at the request of a priest named Magulfus donated the castle of Biberburg to the monastery of Saint Gall.

Gotfrid fought a war over his de facto independence with the mayor of the palace Pepin of Heristal. The war was unfinished when Gotfrid died in 709. His sons, Lantfrid and Theudebald, had the support of Pepin and succeeded him.

Gotfrid married a daughter of Theodo of Bavaria and his third son, Odilo, later ruled in Bavaria. From his son Huoching (Huocin, Houchi, or Hug) came the later stock of the Ahalolfings. His daughter Regarde married Hildeprand of Spoleto, and he left a youngest son named Liutfrid.

Gotfrid aber auch Gotefrid, Gotefred oder Gottfried (lat. Gotfridus oder Cotefredus; * ?; † 709) war bis 709 alamannischer Herzog aus dem Hause der Agilolfinger. Er war Vater des Lantfrid und Theudebald. Nach einer Urkunde aus dem Jahr 700 schenkte Gotfrid auf Bitten eines Priesters Magulfus in Cannstatt den Ort Biberburg an die Zelle des Heiligen St. Gallus.

Gotfrid stand in ihrem Amt den fränkischen Hausmeiern in erbitterter Feindschaft gegenüber und verteidigte ihnen gegenüber die Unabhängigkeit seines Herzogtums.

Als Gotfrid im Jahre 709 starb, erhoben seine Söhne Lantfrid und Theudebald gemeinsam Anspruch auf das Herzogsamt.

Gottfried (Gotefrid), Herzog (dux) der Alamannen

+ 709

Gehörte zu der Gruppe von (rechtsrheinischen) duces, die mit legitimistischen Begründungen es ablehnten, sich dem karolingischen Hausmeier zu fügen. Daher hat Gottfriedangesichts des schwachen merowingischen Königtums offenbar eine weitgehend unabhängige Herrschaft über das ganze Alamannien ausgeübt, wovon zum Beispiel die Datierung nach Herzogsjahren in einer Urkunde Gottfrieds für die Kirche von St. Gallen zeugt; der Ausstellungsort Cannstatt weist die Gegend am oberen Neckar als Wirkungsbereich des Herzogtums aus. Der dem Verwandtschaftskreis der AGILOLFINGER zugerechnete Gottfried galt im frühen 9. Jh. als Spitzenahn Hildegards, der Gemahlin KARLS DES GROSSEN. Von Gottfrieds Söhnen folgte Lantfrid später im alemannischen Dukat, während Odilo offenbar die agilolfingische Linie der Herzöge von Bayern fortsetzte.

In English:

Gottfried (Gotefrid) belonged to the Right Bank dukes who rejected the legitimacy of the Carolingian House. Given the weak Merovingian Kingdom, Gottfried maintained a largely independent sovereignty over the whole of Swabia. As shown by a document about the founding of a church at St. Gallen, the area from Cannstatt Neckar downward was under the purview of the Duke.

Hildegard, wife of Charlemagne, in the early ninth century, considered Gottfried to be the Patriarch of the Agilolfings. Of Gottfried's sons, Lantfrid followed him as Duke of Alamannia, followed by Odilo.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gotfrid

Gotfrid (also Gotefrid, modernized Gottfried; or Cotefredus; died 709) was the Duke of Alemannia in the late seventh century and until his death. He was of the house of the Agilolfing, which was the dominant ruling family in the Frankish Duchy of Bavaria.

In a document dated to the year 700 in Cannstatt, Gotfrid at the request of a priest named Magulfus donated the castle of Biberburg to the monastery of Saint Gall.

Gotfrid fought a war over his de facto independence with the mayor of the palace Pepin of Heristal. The war was unfinished when Gotfrid died in 709. His sons, Lantfrid and Theudebald, had the support of Pepin and succeeded him.

Gotfrid married a daughter of Theodo of Bavaria and his third son, Odilo, later ruled in Bavaria. From his son Huoching (Huocin, Houchi, or Hug) came the later stock of the Ahalolfings. His daughter Regarde married Hildeprand of Spoleto, and he left a youngest son named Liutfrid

Über Gottfrid, herzog der Alemannen (Deutsch)

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gotfrid

http://fmg.ac/Projects/MedLands/SWABIA.htm#_Toc155861484

Gottfrid (?-709), Duke of the Alemannians. His parentage is speculative, but he is known to have belonged to the Agilolfings. Some sources call him the 13th Merovingian Duke of Alemannia, which seems to be a wishful exaggeration of the evidence.

Controversy About His Wife

"There is no direct evidence regarding Gottfried's wife or wives." Stewart Baldwin summarizes the evidence as follows:

"The suggestion that he [Gottfrid] was married to a daughter of duke Theodo (II not V) is based on a string of conjectures:

1. It has been conjectured that duke Odilo of Bavaria was a son of Gottfried. This conjecture has been accepted by many scholars, and I am inclined to regard it as probably true, but the evidence is not that strong.

2. Assuming that the first conjecture is correct, it has been conjectured on top of that that Odilo's mother was an Agilolfing, in order to explain his possession of the duchy of Bavaria and to explain the Agilolfing name that he gave to his son Thassilo.

3. Assuming that the second conjecture is correct, it has been conjectured on top of that that Gottfried's wife was a daughter of Theodo II, Agilolfing duke of Bavaria. Based on the same string of guesses, Settipani has conjectured that Gottfried's wife was a sister of Theodo rather than his daughter. Although both conjectures are based on very slender evidence, Settipani's version is chronologically more plausible.

To accept the above line [omitted here], you would have to accept all of the above string of conjectures, and accept in addition that Huoching and Odilo had the same mother, when we have no evidence whether or not Gottfried was married more than once."

Unattributed biography

Godefroy Duke of Alamannia - ruled the region of western Europe, on both sides of the Upper Rhine (modern E. France and W. Germany) home of the Alamanni in the time of Clovis I, a Frankish Province, later in 1000 it became a Duchy. The Alamanni (having lived by the Lake Laman) were of the Sueva stock on the upper Rhine River in southern Germany.

At the death of Godefroy of the Alamanni in 730, his kingdom was joined to the Frankish empire as a dukedom. His son, Houching was the 1st dux. (duke)

Godefroy was seen 679-708 and dead in 709. The Alamanni were defeated (486) and conquered by the Franks under Clovis (q.v.) in 502/507; Frankish administration (Counts) and Christianity were introduced. The territory of the Alemanni remained a distinctive administrative unit, the Duchy of Alamannia, (Swabia) which stretched along both banks of the Rhine from the Alps to Strassburg or beyond.

Gottfried (Gotefrid), Herzog (dux) der Alamannen

+ 709

Gehörte zu der Gruppe von (rechtsrheinischen) duces, die mit legitimistischen Begründungen es ablehnten, sich dem karolingischen Hausmeier zu fügen. Daher hat Gottfriedangesichts des schwachen merowingischen Königtums offenbar eine weitgehend unabhängige Herrschaft über das ganze Alamannien ausgeübt, wovon zum Beispiel die Datierung nach Herzogsjahren in einer Urkunde Gottfrieds für die Kirche von St. Gallen zeugt; der Ausstellungsort Cannstatt weist die Gegend am oberen Neckar als Wirkungsbereich des Herzogtums aus. Der dem Verwandtschaftskreis der AGILOLFINGER zugerechnete Gottfried galt im frühen 9. Jh. als Spitzenahn Hildegards, der Gemahlin KARLS DES GROSSEN. Von Gottfrieds Söhnen folgte Lantfrid später im alemannischen Dukat, während Odilo offenbar die agilolfingische Linie der Herzöge von Bayern fortsetzte.

In English:

Gottfried (Gotefrid) belonged to the Right Bank dukes who rejected the legitimacy of the Carolingian House. Given the weak Merovingian Kingdom, Gottfried maintained a largely independent sovereignty over the whole of Swabia. As shown by a document about the founding of a church at St. Gallen, the area from Cannstatt Neckar downward was under the purview of the Duke.

Hildegard, wife of Charlemagne, in the early ninth century, considered Gottfried to be the Patriarch of the Agilolfings. Of Gottfried's sons, Lantfrid followed him as Duke of Alamannia, followed by Odilo.

Gottfried (Gotefrid), Herzog (dux) der Alamannen

+ 709

Gehörte zu der Gruppe von (rechtsrheinischen) duces, die mit legitimistischen Begründungen es ablehnten, sich dem karolingischen Hausmeier zu fügen. Daher hat Gottfriedangesichts des schwachen merowingischen Königtums offenbar eine weitgehend unabhängige Herrschaft über das ganze Alamannien ausgeübt, wovon zum Beispiel die Datierung nach Herzogsjahren in einer Urkunde Gottfrieds für die Kirche von St. Gallen zeugt; der Ausstellungsort Cannstatt weist die Gegend am oberen Neckar als Wirkungsbereich des Herzogtums aus. Der dem Verwandtschaftskreis der AGILOLFINGER zugerechnete Gottfried galt im frühen 9. Jh. als Spitzenahn Hildegards, der Gemahlin KARLS DES GROSSEN. Von Gottfrieds Söhnen folgte Lantfrid später im alemannischen Dukat, während Odilo offenbar die agilolfingische Linie der Herzöge von Bayern fortsetzte.

In English:

Gottfried (Gotefrid) belonged to the Right Bank dukes who rejected the legitimacy of the Carolingian House. Given the weak Merovingian Kingdom, Gottfried maintained a largely independent sovereignty over the whole of Swabia. As shown by a document about the founding of a church at St. Gallen, the area from Cannstatt Neckar downward was under the purview of the Duke.

Hildegard, wife of Charlemagne, in the early ninth century, considered Gottfried to be the Patriarch of the Agilolfings. Of Gottfried's sons, Lantfrid followed him as Duke of Alamannia, followed by Odilo.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gotfrid

Gotfrid (also Gotefrid, modernized Gottfried; or Cotefredus; died 709) was the Duke of Alemannia in the late seventh century and until his death. He was of the house of the Agilolfing, which was the dominant ruling family in the Frankish Duchy of Bavaria.

In a document dated to the year 700 in Cannstatt, Gotfrid at the request of a priest named Magulfus donated the castle of Biberburg to the monastery of Saint Gall.

Gotfrid fought a war over his de facto independence with the mayor of the palace Pepin of Heristal. The war was unfinished when Gotfrid died in 709. His sons, Lantfrid and Theudebald, had the support of Pepin and succeeded him.

Gotfrid married a daughter of Theodo of Bavaria and his third son, Odilo, later ruled in Bavaria. From his son Huoching (Huocin, Houchi, or Hug) came the later stock of the Ahalolfings. His daughter Regarde married Hildeprand of Spoleto, and he left a youngest son named Liutfrid

About Gotfridus (Latin)

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gotfrid

http://fmg.ac/Projects/MedLands/SWABIA.htm#_Toc155861484

Gottfrid (?-709), Duke of the Alemannians. His parentage is speculative, but he is known to have belonged to the Agilolfings. Some sources call him the 13th Merovingian Duke of Alemannia, which seems to be a wishful exaggeration of the evidence.

Controversy About His Wife

"There is no direct evidence regarding Gottfried's wife or wives." Stewart Baldwin summarizes the evidence as follows:

"The suggestion that he [Gottfrid] was married to a daughter of duke Theodo (II not V) is based on a string of conjectures:

1. It has been conjectured that duke Odilo of Bavaria was a son of Gottfried. This conjecture has been accepted by many scholars, and I am inclined to regard it as probably true, but the evidence is not that strong.

2. Assuming that the first conjecture is correct, it has been conjectured on top of that that Odilo's mother was an Agilolfing, in order to explain his possession of the duchy of Bavaria and to explain the Agilolfing name that he gave to his son Thassilo.

3. Assuming that the second conjecture is correct, it has been conjectured on top of that that Gottfried's wife was a daughter of Theodo II, Agilolfing duke of Bavaria. Based on the same string of guesses, Settipani has conjectured that Gottfried's wife was a sister of Theodo rather than his daughter. Although both conjectures are based on very slender evidence, Settipani's version is chronologically more plausible.

To accept the above line [omitted here], you would have to accept all of the above string of conjectures, and accept in addition that Huoching and Odilo had the same mother, when we have no evidence whether or not Gottfried was married more than once."

(Stewart Baldwin, soc.genealogy.medieval, May 18, 2012)

Unattributed biography

Godefroy Duke of Alamannia - ruled the region of western Europe, on both sides of the Upper Rhine (modern E. France and W. Germany) home of the Alamanni in the time of Clovis I, a Frankish Province, later in 1000 it became a Duchy. The Alamanni (having lived by the Lake Laman) were of the Sueva stock on the upper Rhine River in southern Germany.

At the death of Godefroy of the Alamanni in 730, his kingdom was joined to the Frankish empire as a dukedom. His son, Houching was the 1st dux. (duke)

Godefroy was seen 679-708 and dead in 709. The Alamanni were defeated (486) and conquered by the Franks under Clovis (q.v.) in 502/507; Frankish administration (Counts) and Christianity were introduced. The territory of the Alemanni remained a distinctive administrative unit, the Duchy of Alamannia, (Swabia) which stretched along both banks of the Rhine from the Alps to Strassburg or beyond.

Gotfrid aber auch Gotefrid, Gotefred oder Gottfried (lat. Gotfridus oder Cotefredus; * ?; † 709) war bis 709 alamannischer Herzog aus dem Hause der Agilolfinger. Er war Vater des Lantfrid und Theudebald. Nach einer Urkunde aus dem Jahr 700 schenkte Gotfrid auf Bitten eines Priesters Magulfus in Cannstatt den Ort Biberburg an die Zelle des Heiligen St. Gallus.

Gotfrid stand in ihrem Amt den fränkischen Hausmeiern in erbitterter Feindschaft gegenüber und verteidigte ihnen gegenüber die Unabhängigkeit seines Herzogtums.

Als Gotfrid im Jahre 709 starb, erhoben seine Söhne Lantfrid und Theudebald gemeinsam Anspruch auf das Herzogsamt.

3. Assuming that the second conjecture is correct, it has been conjectured on top of that that Gottfried's wife was a daughter of Theodo II, Agilolfing duke of Bavaria. Based on the same string of guesses, Settipani has conjectured that Gottfried's wife was a sister of Theodo rather than his daughter. Although both conjectures are based on very slender evidence, Settipani's version is chronologically more plausible.

To accept the above line [omitted here], you would have to accept all of the above string of conjectures, and accept in addition that Huoching and Odilo had the same mother, when we have no evidence whether or not Gottfried was married more than once."

Unattributed biography

Godefroy Duke of Alamannia - ruled the region of western Europe, on both sides of the Upper Rhine (modern E. France and W. Germany) home of the Alamanni in the time of Clovis I, a Frankish Province, later in 1000 it became a Duchy. The Alamanni (having lived by the Lake Laman) were of the Sueva stock on the upper Rhine River in southern Germany.

At the death of Godefroy of the Alamanni in 730, his kingdom was joined to the Frankish empire as a dukedom. His son, Houching was the 1st dux. (duke)

Godefroy was seen 679-708 and dead in 709. The Alamanni were defeated (486) and conquered by the Franks under Clovis (q.v.) in 502/507; Frankish administration (Counts) and Christianity were introduced. The territory of the Alemanni remained a distinctive administrative unit, the Duchy of Alamannia, (Swabia) which stretched along both banks of the Rhine from the Alps to Strassburg or beyond.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gotfrid Gotfrid, Gotefrid, or Gottfried (Latin: Gotfridus or Cotefredus; died 709) was the Duke of Alemannia in the late seventh century and until his death. He was of the house of the Agilolfing, which was the dominant ruling family in Bavaria.

In a document dated to the year 700 in Cannstatt, Gotfrid at the request of a priest named Magulfus donated the castle of Biberburg to the monastery of Saint Gall.

Gotfrid fought a war over his de facto independence with the mayor of the palace Pepin of Heristal. The war was unfinished when Gotfrid died in 709. His sons, Lantfrid and Theudebald, had the support of Pepin and succeeded him.

Gotfrid married a daughter of Theodo of Bavaria and his third son, Odilo, later ruled in Bavaria. From his son Huoching (Huocin, Houchi, or Hug) came the later stock of the Ahalolfings. His daughter Regarde married Hildeprand of Spoleto, and he left a youngest son named Liutfrid.

http://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gotfrid Gotfrid aber auch Gotefrid, Gotefred oder Gottfried (lat. Gotfridus oder Cotefredus; * ?; † 709) war bis 709 alamannischer Herzog aus dem Hause der Agilolfinger. Er war Vater des Lantfrid und Theudebald. Nach einer Urkunde aus dem Jahr 700 schenkte Gotfrid auf Bitten eines Priesters Magulfus in Cannstatt den Ort Biberburg an die Zelle des Heiligen St. Gallus.

Gotfrid stand in ihrem Amt den fränkischen Hausmeiern in erbitterter Feindschaft gegenüber und verteidigte ihnen gegenüber die Unabhängigkeit seines Herzogtums.

Als Gotfrid im Jahre 709 starb, erhoben seine Söhne Lantfrid und Theudebald gemeinsam Anspruch auf das Herzogsamt.

Gottfried (Gotefrid), Herzog (dux) der Alamannen

+ 709

Gehörte zu der Gruppe von (rechtsrheinischen) duces, die mit legitimistischen Begründungen es ablehnten, sich dem karolingischen Hausmeier zu fügen. Daher hat Gottfriedangesichts des schwachen merowingischen Königtums offenbar eine weitgehend unabhängige Herrschaft über das ganze Alamannien ausgeübt, wovon zum Beispiel die Datierung nach Herzogsjahren in einer Urkunde Gottfrieds für die Kirche von St. Gallen zeugt; der Ausstellungsort Cannstatt weist die Gegend am oberen Neckar als Wirkungsbereich des Herzogtums aus. Der dem Verwandtschaftskreis der AGILOLFINGER zugerechnete Gottfried galt im frühen 9. Jh. als Spitzenahn Hildegards, der Gemahlin KARLS DES GROSSEN. Von Gottfrieds Söhnen folgte Lantfrid später im alemannischen Dukat, während Odilo offenbar die agilolfingische Linie der Herzöge von Bayern fortsetzte.

In English:

Gottfried (Gotefrid) belonged to the Right Bank dukes who rejected the legitimacy of the Carolingian House. Given the weak Merovingian Kingdom, Gottfried maintained a largely independent sovereignty over the whole of Swabia. As shown by a document about the founding of a church at St. Gallen, the area from Cannstatt Neckar downward was under the purview of the Duke.

Hildegard, wife of Charlemagne, in the early ninth century, considered Gottfried to be the Patriarch of the Agilolfings. Of Gottfried's sons, Lantfrid followed him as Duke of Alamannia, followed by Odilo.
