Linzgau was situated north of Lake Constance, and east of Hegau, in southern Württemberg.

The Genealogia Welforum[960], the first genealogy of the Welf family, was compiled in the mid-1120s in upper Germany and a decade later in Lüneburg. A document comprising ten short paragraphs, it is uncertain whether the earlier parts of the family are accurately represented: in particular there is an apparent conflation of one generation (see below). This was followed in [1170] by the Historia Welforum, written by an anonymous Swabian cleric in the entourage of Duke Welf [VI]. This repeats the often stated Trojan origin of the Franks, with the migrants settling on the banks of the Rhine, and more specifically the descent of the Welf family from "filiamဦsenatoris RomaniဦKatilina"[961]. The name Welf was not applied to the whole dynasty until the 12th century, this unusual first name being an abbreviation of "Welfhard" or "Bernwelf" and signifying puppy[962]. Migrating into Swabia from the area of Metz, the family's territories were at first centred around the Argen and Schussen, districts north-east of Lake Constance. They expanded northwards along the Lech river, acquiring a second power-base in the Ammer and Augst districts on the border with Bavaria[963]. The reduction in the central authority of the dukes of Swabia within their duchy enabled the Welf family to increase its own power from the end-11th century, from which time they exercised the authority of dukes in their extensive territories without the ducal title.

WELF [I], son of ROTHARD Graf & his wife --- (-[824/25]). Settipani names Welf [I] as son of Rothard[964] but does not cite the primary source on which this is based. The Annalista Saxo names "de principibus Bawarorum qui fuit binomius, name et Eticho et Welfus dicebatur" who was father of Empress Judith[965]. From the area of Metz. Moved to Bavaria. Graf in Swabia.
m HEILWIG, daughter of ---. Thegan's Vita Hludowici Imperatoris names "filiam Hwelfi ducis sui, qui erat de nobilissima progenie BawariorumဦIudithဦex parte matrisဦEigilwi nobilissimi generic Saxonici" as second wife of Emperor Ludwig[966]. She was installed as Abbess of Chelles, near Paris, through the influence of her daughter Empress Judith.
Welf [I] & his wife had four children:
1. RUDOLF [I] (-15 Oct 866). Thegan's Vita Hludowici Imperatoris names (in order) "Chuonradum et Ruodolfum" as brothers of Empress Judith[967]. He was given the abbeys of Saint-Riquier and Jumièges, through the influence of his sister Empress Judith. The Chronique de Saint Riquier records that "Rodolpheဦdu sang imperialဦoncle du glorieux roi Charles" succeeded abbé Louis as lay abbot of Saint-Riquier[968]. The Annales Alamannicorum record "Hruodolfus frater Iudith Augustæ" among those who swore allegiance in 864[969]. Comte de Sens. The Annales Bertiniani record the death in 866 of "Rodulfus Karoli regis avunculus"[970]. The Adonis Continuatio records the death in 866 of "avunculus quoque eius [Carolo, Ludovici filii"] Radulfus, consiliarius primusque palatii"[971]. Two contemporary Epitafia commemorate "nobilisဦRhuodulfus", the second recording his death "Idus octavo"[972]. m HRUODUN, daughter of --- (-after 867). The primary source which confirms her marriage has not yet been identified. - COMTES de SENS.
2. CONRAD "l'Ancien" (-22 Mar [862/66]). Thegan's Vita Hludowici Imperatoris names (in order) "Chuonradum et Ruodolfum" as brothers of Empress Judith[973]. Graf von Linz- und Argengau. Dux. Nithard records that Conrad and his brother Rudolf were forcibly tonsured in [Apr 830] by their sister's stepson, Lothar, then in revolt against his father, and sent to Aquitaine "to be held by Pepin"[974]. Comte de Paris. The Miraculis Sancti Germani record that "Chuonradus princeps" was cured of an eye problem by the saint, and that he built the church of Saint-Germain at Auxerre in thanks[975]. An agreement between Charles II "le Chauve" King of the West Franks and his brother Ludwig II "der Deutsche" King of the East Franks dated Jun 860 names "nobilis ac fidelibus laicisဦChuonradus, Evrardus, Adalardus, Arnustus, Warnarius, Liutfridus, Hruodolfus, Erkingarius, Gislebertus, Ratbodus, Arnulfus, Hugo, item Chuonradus, Liutharius, Berengarius, Matfridus, Boso, Sigeri, Hartmannus, Liuthardus, Richuinus, Wigricus, Hunfridus, Bernoldus, Hatto, Adalbertus, Burchardus, Christianus, Leutulfus, Hessi, Herimannus, item Hruodulfus, Sigehardus"[976]. "Ludowicusဦrex" confirmed an exchange between Grimald abbot of St Gallen and "quidam comisဦChuonratus" relating to property in Linzgau and Argengau, by charter dated 1 Apr 861[977]. A poem by Walahfridus Strabus records the epitaph of "Chonradum comitem"[978]. The necrology of Auxerre cathedral records the death 22 Mar of "Conradus comes"[979]. m ADELAIS [de Tours], daughter of HUGUES Comte [de Tours] & his wife Ava ---. The Miraculis Sancti Germani name "Adheleid" as wife of "Chuonradus princeps"[980]. A poem by Walahfridus Strabus records the epitaph of "Adelheidam"[981]. The primary source which confirms her parentage has not yet been identified. Some secondary works[982] assert that the second husband of Adelais was Robert "le Fort" [Capet]. If this is correct, Adelais must have been Comte Robert's second or third wife as his known children were already born by the time Adelais's husband Conrad died. The assertion appears based on the Chronicle of St Bénigne de Dijon which names "duo filii Rotberti Andegavorum comitis, frs Hugonis abbatis, senior OdoဦRobertus alter"[983]. Settipani states that the passage is a 12th century interpolation and has little historical value, although he does suggest that it is likely that the wife of Comte Robert was a close relation of Adelais without providing the basis for this statement[984]. A family connection between Comte Robert and Conrad Comte de Paris is also suggested by the former being invested with the county of Auxerre in 865, after this county was confiscated from the latter (as recorded by Hincmar[985]), on the assumption that there was some basis of heredity behind the transmission of counties in France at that time (which is probable, but remains unproven). Comte Conrad & his wife had [five] children:
a) WELF (-before 876). The primary source which confirms his parentage has not yet been identified. Graf im Linzgau 842/850. Graf im Alpgau 852/858. m ---. The name of Welf's wife is not known. Graf Welf & his wife had [two possible children]:
i) [CONRAD . The primary source which confirms his parentage has not yet been identified. Graf im Linzgau.] ii) [ETICHO (-after 911, bur Ammergau). The primary source which confirms his parentage has not yet been identified. Graf im Ammergau.]
- see below.
b) CONRAD (-876). His parentage is deduced from Regino who names "Ruodolfus filius Chuonradi, nepos Huggonis abbatis"[986], the latter being recorded in the Miraculis Sancti Germani as "Hugo" one of the sons of "Chuonradus princeps", the patron of the church of Saint-Germain at Auxerre[987]. He helped save Charles II "le Chauve" King of the West Franks after the invasion of Ludwig II "der Deutsche" King of the East Franks. Comte d'Auxerre. He fell into disgrace in 861, and passed into the service of the sons of Emperor Lothar. He received from Emperor Louis the territories of Genève, Lausanne and Sion. Marquis de Transjurane in Dec 864 after he killed comte Hubert [Bosonide][988].
c) HUGO (-Orl√©ans 12 May 886, bur Saint-Germain d'Auxerre). The Annales Bertiniani name "Hugoni clerico, avunculi sui [=Karoli regis] Chonradi filio" when recording that he received the counties of Tours and Angers in 866[989]. Abbot of Saint-Germain d'Auxerre 853. The Miraculis Sancti Germani names "Hugo" as one of the sons of "Chuonradus princeps" who continued to patronise the church of Saint-Germain at Auxerre after their father's death[990]. Imperial missus in Auxerre in 853. Abbot of Saint-Riquier until 861. Abbot of Saint-Bertin 859/62. He was a supporter of King Lothar 861/865. He was elected Archbishop of Köln in 864. The Annales Xantenses record that "quidam tirannicus Hugo·Ä¶filius predicti Cuonradi" (the previous paragraph naming "Cuonradi fratris quondam Iuthit regin√¶") succeeded as archbishop of Köln[991]. Marquis de Neustrie, Comte de Tours et d'Angers 866. Comte d'Auxerre in [866], assuming that Hugues was appointed to succeed Robert "le Fort" in this as well as the latter's other counties, although the primary source which confirms this beyond doubt has not yet been identified. Abbot of Saint-Martin de Tours 866. Abbot of St Vaast, Arras [874]. Abbot of Saint-Aignan, Orl√©ans before 876. Abbot of Saint-Julien d'Auxerre 877. Chaplain of the imperial chapel in [880]. "Hugo consobrinus eius [Conradi]" succeeded his cousin [as Abbot of Saint-Colombe de Sens] in 882, recording that he was "clericatus in Palatio"[992]. "Karolus·Ä¶imperator augustus" confirmed a donation by "Hugo·Ä¶propinquus noster" of property "villam Apiarias in pago Aurelianensi" to "episcopo Adalaldo archiepiscopo simulque Rainoni episcopo, fratri eiusdem" at the request of "Odo comes" by charter dated 27 Oct 886[993]. Regino records the death in 887 of "Hugo abba" at Orl√©ans and his burial "apud Sanctum Germanum Autisiodoro"[994]. The necrology of Auxerre cathedral records the death 12 May of "Hugo abbas"[995]. d) RUDOLF . The primary source which confirms his parentage has not yet been identified. e) [JUDITH]. The identity of Udo's wife is not known with certainty. According to Jackman[996], she may have been the daughter of Konrad Graf im Linz- und Argengau, whom he speculates was named Judith. King Arnulf in a charter dated 19 May 891 names "Chonradi·Ä¶comitis et nepotis nostri"[997]. The speculation is that the relationship may have been through Konrad's mother who, if identified as the daughter of Graf Konrad, was the niece of King Arnulf's paternal grandmother Queen Hemma. m UDO Graf im Lahngau, son of GEBHARD Graf im Niederlahngau [Konradiner] & his wife ---. 860/879.]
3. JUDITH ([805]-Tours 19 Apr 843, bur Tours Saint-Martin). Thegan's Vita Hludowici Imperatoris names "filiam Hwelfi ducis sui, qui erat de nobilissima progenie BawariorumဦIudithဦex parte matrisဦEigilwi nobilissimi generic Saxonici" as second wife of Emperor Louis, specifying that she was "enim pulchra valde"[998]. The Vita Hludowici Imperatoris records the marriage of "Iudith filiam Welponisဦcomitis" and Emperor Louis I[999]. The Annales Xantenses record the marriage in Feb 819 of "Ludewicus imperator" and "Iudith"[1000]. Judith was influential with her husband, which increased the tensions with his sons by his first marriage. Thegan's Vita Hludowici Imperatoris records that "quondam duce Bernhardo, qui erat de stirpe regali" was accused of violating "Iudith reginam" but comments that this was all lies[1001]. Judith was exiled to the monastery of Sainte-Croix de Poitiers during the first rebellion of her stepsons in 830, was released in 831, but exiled again to Tortona in Italy in 833 from where she was brought back in Apr 834[1002]. The necrology of the abbey of Saint-Denis records the death "XIII Kal Mai" of "Judith regina"[1003]. The Annales Xantenses record the death in 843 of "Iudhit imperatrix mater Karoli" at Tours[1004]. m (Aix-la-Chapelle Feb 819) as his second wife, Emperor LOUIS I, son of Emperor CHARLES I "Charlemagne" King of the Franks & his second wife Hildegardis (Chasseneuil-du-Poitou {Vienne} [16 Apr/Sep] 778-island in the Rhine near Ingelheim 20 Jun 840, bur bur Metz, église abbatiale de Saint-Arnoul).
4. EMMA [Hemma] (-31 Jan 876, bur Regensburg St Emmeran). The Annales Xantenses record the marriage in 827 of "Ludewicus rex" and "sororem Iudith imperatricis" but does not name her[1005]. This appears to be the only source in which her origin is given. "Ludowicusဦrex" made a donation to St Felix & Regula in Zurich naming "filia nostra Berthaဦ[et] coniugis nostræ Hemmæ" by charter dated 29 Oct 863[1006]. The Gesta Francorum records that "Hemma quoque regina" became paralysed in 874, died at Regensburg in 876 and was buried in the church of St Emmeran[1007]. The necrology of Regensburg St Emmeran records the death "II Kal Feb" of "Hemma regina hic sepulta"[1008]. The necrology of Augia Divis records the death "II Kal Feb" of "Hemma regina"[1009]. The necrology of Nonnberg records the death "2 Kal Jan" of "Hemma imperatrix sor na"[1010]. m (827) LOUIS King of Bavaria and Carinthia, son of Emperor LOUIS I "le Pieux" & his first wife Ermengardis [de Hesbaye] ([806]-Frankfurt-am-Main 28 Aug 876, bur Kloster Lorsch).
