Gertrude Von Hohenberg

June 3, 2014 , ,

My 20th great grand-mother is buried in the cathedral in Basel, where I have been several times.  It is a very impressive building on the Rhine.  Basel is one of my favorite cities on earth.  The Rhineland has a special kind of mysticism, culture, and history.  I have been to the crypt of St. Verena right up the river in Bad Zurzach.  Now I need to go again to visit my ancestor in the cathedral:

Many of her children were born in Rhinefelden, a mineral spa town with a salt water source next to the river.  I took both my parents there to spa down many years ago.  My father had had a stoke and was impressed with the way he felt after his water soaking and foot treatments in the Swiss therapy center.  I remember telling him to take it all in because it was all part of his cure.  We were sitting at that moment in the gardens (aka kurpark) watching the Rhine flow before dinner with the family.  It was peaceful, beautiful, and my  type A father seemed to get it for that moment.  He was one with nature and the flow of life, and part of his own cure.   I know now that these are not the only ancestors my father had who lived in the tiny town of Rhinefelden.

Gertrude of Hohenburg (c. 1225 – 16 February 1281, Vienna) was the first Queen consort of Rudolph I of Germany.
Family
She was born to Burchard V, Count of Hohenberg (d. 1253) and his wife Mechtild of Tübingen.
Her paternal grandparents were Burchard IV, Count of Hohenberg and his unnamed wife. Her maternal grandparents were Rudolph II, Count palatine and his wife, a daughter of Henry, Margrave of Ronsberg and Udilhild of Gammertingen.
Burchard IV was a son of Burchard III, Count of Hohenberg.
Burchard III was one of two sons of Burchard II, Count of Hohenberg. He was co-ruler with his brother Frederick, Count of Hohenberg. His brother had no known descendants and the two brothers consequently had a single successor.
Burchard II was one of five known sons of Frederick I, Count of Zollern and his wife Udachild of Urach.
Frederich I was the son of Burchard I, Count of Zollern. He was the founder of the so-called Burchardinger family line, male-line ancestors of the House of Hohenzollern.
Marriage and children
In 1245, Gertrude married Rudolph IV, Count of Habsburg. They had nine children:
Albert I of Germany (July 1255 – 1 May 1308), Duke of Austria and also of Styria.
Hartmann (1263, Rheinfelden–21 December 1281), drowned in Rheinau.
Rudolph II, Duke of Austria and Styria (1270–10 May 1290, Prague), titular Duke of Swabia, father of John the Patricide of Austria.
Matilda (ca. 1251/53, Rheinfelden–23 December 1304, Munich), married 1273 in Aachen to Louis II, Duke of Bavaria and became mother of Rudolf I, Count Palatine of the Rhine and Louis IV, Holy Roman Emperor.
Katharina (1256–4 April 1282, Landshut), married 1279 in Vienna to Otto III, Duke of Bavaria who later (after her death) became the disputed King Bela V of Hungary and left no surviving issue.
Agnes (ca. 1257–11 October 1322, Wittenberg), married 1273 to Albert II, Duke of Saxe-Wittenberg and became the mother of Rudolf I, Elector of Saxony.
Hedwig (d. 1285/86), married 1270 in Vienna to Otto VI, Margrave of Brandenburg and left no issue.
Klementia (ca. 1262–after 7 February 1293), married 1281 in Vienna to Charles Martel of Anjou, the Papal claimant to the throne of Hungary and mother of king Charles I of Hungary, as well as of queen Clementia of France, herself the mother of the baby king John I of France.
Jutte/Bona (13 March 1271–18 June 1297, Prague), married 24 January 1285 to King Wenceslaus II of Bohemia and became the mother of king Wenceslaus III of Bohemia, Poland and Hungary, of queen Anna I of Bohemia, duchess of Carinthia, and of queen Elisabeth I of Bohemia, countess of Luxembourg.

Her husband was elected King of Germany in Frankfurt on 29 September 1273, largely due to the efforts of her cousin Frederick III, Burgrave of Nuremberg. Rudolph was crowned in Aachen on 24 October 1273. She served as his Queen consort for the following eight years.
She died early in 1281. Rudolph remained a widower for three years and proceeded to marry Isabelle of Burgundy.
