Huoching (c675-c744), an Alemannian nobleman, and a brother of Dukes Lantfrid and Theutbald.

Ben M. Angel's summary

Relationships:

Father: Gottfrid, Duke of Alamannia (d. 709)

Mother: Unknown

Siblings:

1. Lantfrid, Duke of Alamannia (ruled 709-730)

2. Teotbald, Duke of Alamannia (ruled 730-745)

(Oatillo is asserted on several online trees, etc., but haven't seen source associating this person as his brother. This may be the assertion that Odilo, Duke of Bavaria 739-748, was one of their brothers. However, there is nothing that I've seen that supports this; still, certainly, Odilo's parents haven't been identified as yet.)

Spouse: Unknown

(Spouse has been asserted as Regine, but again, without backing.)

Children:

1. Hnabi (Nebe)

Basic information and justifications:

Birth: c.675 - this is likely an estimate. Location could be asserted as Canstatt, or present Stuttgart, as the difficulties associated with the Alamannian push for independence (against Pepin of Herstal) hadn't begun yet at that time.

Death: 744 - asserted by English Wikipedia. Location unknown. This would be during the time frame in which Charles Martel would have invaded Alamannia.

Occupation: Not Duke of Alamannia. His brother Theotbald was Duke of Alamannia following the death of their older brother, Lantpert in 730, remaining so until 745, when he was deposed and fled to Odilo's Bavaria. This may be an indication that Theotbald was the elder brother of Huoching.

Alternate names: Huocin, Houchi, and Hug have been asserted, but I've not seen any sources backing this. Still, it's possible.

Wikipedia (Ahalolfings)

The Ahalolfings or Alaholfings were a noble family of Alemannia in the Early Middle Ages.

The family rose in the Carolingian Empire to possess lands in not only Alemannia, but Bavaria, Franconia, and Italy. Their original power base was around the upper Neckar and Danube rivers.

The Ahalolfings are divided into two groups, the older and the younger. It is not certain how the two groups are related.

The older group descends from a Berthold who was the joint founder, with Hnabi, of Reichenau Abbey in 724. His most famous descendant was Cadolah, Duke of Friuli, who defended the Pannonian plains into Italy from the Avars.

The younger branch of the family itself contains two branches. Richardis, the empress of Charles the Fat, descends from Erchanger. Her sister married Berthold I and was the mother of the other branch of the family, which included the famous Erchanger, Duke of Swabia, and his brother Berthold II. The Ahalolfings died out when Berthold III died in 973, though the Zähringen may be descended from them.

Wikipedia

Huoching of Alamannia (ca. 675-744) was an Alamannic nobleman. According to the 9th century Vita Hiudowici by Thegan, he was the son of Gotfrid Agilolfing (ca. 650-709).

Huoching's son Hnabi (Nebi) was the founder of the Ahalolfings dynasty which rose to prominence in Alamannia in the Carolingian period.

The Agilofing descent has been doubted in scholarship. Wenskus ([year needed]:497-500) has suggested a connection of Huoching and Hnabi to the historical Nibelungs. Jänichen (1976) compares the father-and-son pair Hoc and Hnaef in Old English heroic poetry (Beowulf, Finnsburgh fragment, Widsith) suggesting that Huoching and Hnabi are the historical template for these names in later heroic poetry. In this, Jäching is following a suggestion made as early as 1849 by John Mitchell Kemble in History of the Saxons in England (p. 419).

Hnabi "Dux" (~715-788)

Not to be confused with:

Hnabi or Nebi (c. 710 – c. 788) was an Alemannic duke in the eighth century. He was a son of Huoching and perhaps a grandson of the duke Gotfrid, which would make him a scion of the Agilolfing dynasty of Bavaria. He himself was the founder of the "old" line of the Ahalolfings.

From the Wikipedia for Hnabi, father of Imma mother of Hildegard, wife of Charlemagne.

was an Alamannic nobleman. According to the 9th century Vita Hiudowici by Thegan, he was the son of Gotfrid Agilolfing (ca. 650-709). Huoching's son Hnabi (Nebi) was the founder of the Ahalolfings dynasty which rose to prominence in Alamannia in the Carolingian period. The Agilofing descent has been doubted in scholarship. Wenskus ([year needed]:497-500) has suggested a connection of Huoching and Hnabi to the historical Nibelungs. Jänichen (1976) compares the father-and-son pair Hoc and Hnaef in Old English heroic poetry (Beowulf, Finnsburgh fragment, Widsith) suggesting that Huoching and Hnabi are the historical template for these names in later heroic poetry.

Huoching (c675-c744), an Alemannian nobleman, and a brother of Dukes Lantfrid and Theutbald.

Ben M. Angel's summary

Relationships:

Father: Gottfrid, Duke of Alamannia (d. 709)

Mother: Unknown

Siblings:

1. Lantfrid, Duke of Alamannia (ruled 709-730)

2. Teotbald, Duke of Alamannia (ruled 730-745)

(Oatillo is asserted on several online trees, etc., but haven't seen source associating this person as his brother. This may be the assertion that Odilo, Duke of Bavaria 739-748, was one of their brothers. However, there is nothing that I've seen that supports this; still, certainly, Odilo's parents haven't been identified as yet.)

Spouse: Unknown

(Spouse has been asserted as Regine, but again, without backing.)

Children:

1. Hnabi (Nebe)

Basic information and justifications:

Birth: c.675 - this is likely an estimate. Location could be asserted as Canstatt, or present Stuttgart, as the difficulties associated with the Alamannian push for independence (against Pepin of Herstal) hadn't begun yet at that time.

Death: 744 - asserted by English Wikipedia. Location unknown. This would be during the time frame in which Charles Martel would have invaded Alamannia.

Occupation: Not Duke of Alamannia. His brother Theotbald was Duke of Alamannia following the death of their older brother, Lantpert in 730, remaining so until 745, when he was deposed and fled to Odilo's Bavaria. This may be an indication that Theotbald was the elder brother of Huoching.

Alternate names: Huocin, Houchi, and Hug have been asserted, but I've not seen any sources backing this. Still, it's possible.

Wikipedia (Ahalolfings)

Wikipedia Ahalolfings The Ahalolfings or Alaholfings were a noble family of Alemannia in the Early Middle Ages.

The family rose in the Carolingian Empire to possess lands in not only Alemannia, but Bavaria, Franconia, and Italy. Their original power base was around the upper Neckar and Danube rivers.

The Ahalolfings are divided into two groups, the older and the younger. It is not certain how the two groups are related.

The older group descends from a Berthold who was the joint founder, with Hnabi, of Reichenau Abbey in 724. His most famous descendant was Cadolah, Duke of Friuli, who defended the Pannonian plains into Italy from the Avars.

The younger branch of the family itself contains two branches. Richardis, the empress of Charles the Fat, descends from Erchanger. Her sister married Berthold I and was the mother of the other branch of the family, which included the famous Erchanger, Duke of Swabia, and his brother Berthold II. The Ahalolfings died out when Berthold III died in 973, though the Zähringen may be descended from them.
