About Richgard of Weimar-Istrien

POPPO von Weimar, son of WILHELM II "der Große" Graf im Visichgau [Weimar] & his wife --- (-13 Jul before 1044). ... m HADAMUT of Istria, daughter of WERIAND Conte di Istria e Friulia & his wife Willibirg [Sieghardinger] (-after 1040). Marchese Poppo & his wife had one child:

  • 1. ULRICH (-6 Mar 1070). ... m ([1062/63]) as her first husband, SOPHIA of Hungary, daughter of BÉLA I King of Hungary & his wife [Ryksa] of Poland ([1045/50]-18 Jun 1095, bur Lüneburg St Michaelis).
    • a) POPPO (-1098). ... POPPO II Marchese di Carniola e Istria. m ([1090]) as her [first/second] husband, RICHGARD von Sponheim, [widow of BERTHOLD [I] von Regensburg und Schwarzenburg,] daughter of ENGELBERT Graf von Sponheim Graf im Pustergau & his wife Hadwig --- (-10 Apr [1130]).
      • ...
    • b) ULRICH (-13 May 1112). ... He succeeded his brother in 1098 as ULRICH II Marchese di Carniola e Istria. ... m (before 1102, repudiated) ADELHEID von Thüringen, daughter of LUDWIG "der Salier/der Springer" Graf in Thüringen & his wife Adelheid von Stade ([1087]-1146).
    • c) (dght) --- (-after 1091). ... Her husband has generally been identified as Konrad of Bohemia Duke of Brno, son of Břetislav Duke of the Bohemians & his wife Judith von Schweinfurt (-6 Sep 1092). ... Another possibility which is more acceptable from a chronological point of view is that this daughter's husband was Udalrich Duke of Moravia, son of Duke Konrad & his wife Wirpirk [Hildburg] --- (-27 Mar 1113), who is recorded as having a daughter alive in 1096.
    • d) RICHGARD (-before 1128). The Historia Welforum refers to the four daughters of "Sophia ex duce Maginone", specifying that "terciam…duxit dux Maravie, quartam quam Egenhardus comes de Scirin a quodam monaterio…in Ratispona abstulit"[284]. It is clear from many other sources that Sophia and her second husband Magnus of Saxony only had two daughters, Wulfhild and Eilika. It is assumed therefore that the two other daughters referred to were her children by her first marriage with Ulrich of Istria, although the primary source which confirms this clearly has not yet been identified. While there appears to be some confusion in this text, it does clarify that the daughter of Sophia of Hungary married Graf Ekkehard not his brother Graf Otto, the latter being favoured by Wegener[285]. The primary source which names her has not yet been identified, although the necrology of Undensdorf records the death "XII Kal Jun" of "Wichart coma"[286] which may refer to Richgard. m EKKEHARD Graf von Scheyern, son of OTTO [I] Graf von Scheyern [Wittelsbach] & his second wife Hazziga [Hadagunda] von Scheyern (-before 1088, bur Fischbachau, transferred 1127 to Scheyern).
    • e) ADELHEID (-Kloster Tegernsee before 1124, maybe [1122]). ... m firstly as his first wife FRIEDRICH Domvogt von Regensburg, son of FRIEDRICH [I] & his wife [Tuta] von Regensburg. 1095. m secondly as his second wife, UDALSCHALK Graf im Lurngau und Gündlkofen [Hirschberg], son of HARTWIG [II] Graf an der unteren Ampar & his wife Avisa --- (-20 Nov [1115]).

She was never married to Graf Otto II, but to his brother Graf Ekkehard von Scheyern. Se link above for the best info we have at the moment. Please sever all links between her and Otto as her husband. (Remi Pedersen)
