Biography

Gisele (Schwaben) Braunschweig has German Roots.

DOB note

Her DOB has been variously claimed to be between about 989 and about 999. this original profile has it as 999, but this is impossible since her son Liudolf was born c1003 to c1005. Her parentage of Liudolf is confirmed by the sources, and her marriage was c1002, so her DOB here has been changed to c989.

Gisela of Swabia (989 or 990 – February 14, 1043 in Goslar) was the daughter of Herman II of Swabia and Gerberga of Burgundy.

She first married Bruno I, Count of Brunswick, in 1002. Her second marriage was to Ernest I, Duke of Swabia, and she became regent for their son Ernest II after his death in 1015. She was then removed from the regency on grounds of her being too closely related to her late husband.

Her third marriage, in 1016 or 1017, was to Conrad, who later became Emperor. She played an active part in politics, attending imperial councils and having her relative Rudolph III of Burgundy transfer the succession of his realm to her husband. Also, she participated in several synods of the church.

Gisela died of dysentery in the royal palace in Goslar in 1043. She is interred in the grotto of the Imperial Cathedral of Speyer, Germany along with several emperors and other members of the imperial family. Her tomb was opened in 1900 and Gisela's mummified body was found to be 172 cm tall, with long blond hair.

Chapter 12. MARCH of FRISIA

The March of Frisia was presumably established by the kings of Germany as a response to the activities of Dirk III Count of Holland, whom Thietmar records (as "Dietrich the empress's nephew") attacked Adalbold Bishop of Utrecht in 1018, before his forces were attacked by the Frisians and suffered numerous casualties[815].

The precise date when the March was first established is not known. Liudolf von Braunschweig is the first person who appears with the title, from 1028.

His candidature was presumably approved because his paternal grandfather, Ekbert [I] "der Einäugige", held counties in Frisia (see the introductions to Chapters 8 and 9 above). According to Vanderkindere, Liudolf's son and grandson, both named Ekbert, were also installed in the march of Frisia[816]. Although the primary sources indicate that they held land in Frisia, their march was Meissen.

Heinrich Graf von Northeim, whose wife was heiress of the Brunswick family, was installed as Markgraf in Frisia in 1101 but was killed while trying to subdue the territory.


LIUDOLF von Braunschweig, son of BRUNO [I] [von Braunschweig] & his wife Gisela of Swabia ([1003/05]-23 Apr 1038).

  • The Annalista Saxo names "Liudolfus comes Saxonicus, filius Brunonis de Bruneswic et Gisle inperatricis", when recording his death[817].
  • His parentage is confirmed by the charter dated 1051 under which "Heinricus…Romanorum imperator augustus" donated "comitatum quem Brun eiusque filius noster frater Liutolfus nec non et eius filius Echbreht comites…in pagis Northduringen, Darlingen, Valen, Salthga, Grethe, Mulbeze" to the church of Hildesheim[818].

Gisele's DOB might be wrong, considering the DOB of son Liudolf. Or she may not be his mother.
