About Sophia von Hoya, princess of Polotsk and Kokene

]#Sophia Wlazkovna (ca. 1200-1279), the mother of Sophia de Hoya (ca. 1240-), was married to Bernardus von Hoya (1199-1243). She was enfeoffed in 1254 by Counts Johann and Gerhard von Holstein with the former fief of a certain Bernardus von Hoya in Germany. This can be seen as proof that Sophia de Hoya's father was Bernardus von Hoya, and also the birth and death years support this.

  1. The second husband of Sophia Wlazkovna was Theodoric von Kokenhusen (-1257). Sophia Wlazkovna transfers as a widow in 1269 [or 1279] Theodoric von Kokenhusen's fief to Johannes (Hans) von Tiesenhausen (1235-), who was the husband of Sophia de Hoya.
  3. The book of Anti Selart (2015): Livonia, Rus' and the Baltic Crusades in the Thirteenth Century
  4. Priha page 262,; Alvericus page 36; GHBR Estland I pages 392 & 396.

This source says the father should be Theodoricus:

Finnish Wikipedia authors also interpret the father at Teodericus:

Wjatschko (russisch Вячко, wiss. Transliteration Vjačko; lettisch Vetseka) war ein russischer Prinz, der zu Beginn des 13. Jahrhunderts gegen den Expansionsdrang der livländischen Ordensritter kämpfte.

The family von Tisenhausen's family-news also interprets Sophia von Kokenhusen! Not a v. Hoya. ? Part of the collection is the Latin will of Bartholomäus Tiesenhausen dated May 6, 1379; a memorandum of understanding in German language between the bi-shops Heinrich and Theodoricus and the Tiesenhausen family about the grant of the castles Kokenhusen and Berson; a document in Latin from 1254 in which Bishop Johan of Riga acknowledges the grant to Sophie of Kokenhusen with property of the the counts of Holstein in Germany. Sophie was the wife to Jo-hannes Tiesenhausen the son of Engelbrecht.

Sources: Alvericus, page 36 and GHBR Estland I, pages 392, 396

NB! Two types of information Sophia von Hoya / von Kokenois - Kokenhusen's father! Can someone "upgrade" in the right here? Theodoricus von Kokeshusen is Sophia von Kokenhusen's (von Hoya) the most likely father?
