1. [--- . [Graf von Salm?]. The primary source which confirms the parentage of the wife of Friedrich [II] Graf von Vianden has not yet been identified. According to Europäische Stammtafeln she was the daughter of Heinrich [I] Graf von Salm[376]. However, it would have been unusual for a brother and sister to have inherited a county jointly from their father. If that is what happened, the circumstances of the division of Heinrich [I]’s succession have not been ascertained. A more likely explanation is that Elisabeth was the daughter and sole heiress of an otherwise unrecorded older brother of Heinrich [II] who shared the county with her paternal uncle. The dates attributed to the Salm and Vianden families are too imprecise to speculate sensibly on whether the chronology supports this suggestion. m ---. One child:]

The title accorded to her in the document dated 1200 quoted below, and her husband (a younger son) bearing the title Graf von Salm which was not otherwise connected with the Vianden family, suggests that Elisabeth inherited part of the county of Salm (Niedersalm in the Ardenne region) in her own name and transmitted it to her husband.
