Albert IV, “The Wise” Count of Habsburg

August 10, 2014 , , , ,

Albert IV Habsburg married an heiress from Zurich.  He died on a crusade in a place near Tel Aviv.  How wise was it for him to be on a crusade?  This guy Theobald from Navarre that was leading the Crusade sounds like one of my ancestors too.  How crazy for them to trot off to the Holy Land as if they had some business there.  This is what it took to be called wise at the time.

Albrecht IV Count Of HABSBURG was born about 1188 in Of Schloss Limburg, A.d. Rh., Freiburg, Baden. He died on 22 Nov 1240. He married Hedwige Countess Of KYBURG.

Hedwige Countess Of KYBURG was born about 1192 in Of, Kyburg, Zurich, Switzerland. She died on 30 Apr 1260. She married Albrecht IV Count Of HABSBURG.

They had the following children: F i Kunigunde Von HABSBURG was born about 1208 in Of Schloss Limburg, A.d. Rh., Freiburg, Baden. She died in 1228 in Kl. Adelhausen, Freiburg, , Baden.
M ii Hartmann Von HABSBURG was born about 1222 in Of Schloss Limburg, A.d. Rh., Freiburg, Baden. He died in 1252.
M iii Albrecht V Count Of HABSBURG was born about 1220 in Of Schloss Limburg, A.d. Rh., Freiburg, Baden. He died on 1 Jan 1256.
F iv Kunigunde Countess Of HABSBURG was born about 1226 in Of Schloss Limburg, A.d. Rh., Freiburg, Baden.

Albert IV (or Albert the Wise) (ca. 1188 – December 13, 1239) was Count of Habsburg in the Aargau and a progenitor of the royal House of Habsburg.

He was the son of Count Rudolph II of Habsburg and Agnes of Staufen. About 1217 Albert married Hedwig (Heilwig), daughter of Count Ulrich of Kyburg (died 1237) and Anna of Zähringen. Upon the death of his father in 1232 he divided his family’s estates with his brother Rudolph III, whereby he retained the ancestral seat at Habsburg Castle. A follower of Emperor Frederick II of Hohenstaufen, he died on the 1239 crusade of King Theobald I of Navarre near Ashkelon.

Albert was the father of King Rudolph I of Germany, and a mutual ancestor of Archduke Franz Ferdinand of Austria and of his wife Sophie, Duchess of Hohenberg. He is also an ancestor of Queen Elizabeth II of the United Kingdom.

Notes
^ Ferdinand was descended from Rudolph I and Sophie was descended from Rudolph’s sister Elisabeth.

I was interested to find your post about the Habsburgs, as I too descend from the Sears mentioned. Unfortunately, the records linking Sears to Egmond (and therefore the Habsburgs) seem to be flawed. See the note on the Wiki page: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Richard_Sears_(pilgrim)#cite_note-3

If you’ve additional information the Wiki page has missed, I’d love to know about it! 🙂 ~Your cousin

Thank you very much. I have had quite a few errors to correct over the years…I am very interested in the information you are bringing, even if it leads me to chop the Habsburgs off the tree.
