Princess Abbess Adelheid I von Sachsen of Quedlinburg

  • Born: 977
  • Died: 1043 at age 66

  General Notes:

Already as a child Adelheid had been placed in the Chapter of Quedlinburg by her aunt, Mathilde. In 984 she was taken hostage by Heinrich of Bavaria, who wanted to be king of Germany and saw the seven year old girl as a possible tool, since she had been considered a candidate for the succession in the event of her brother's death, but she was liberated by a large Sacon force. Her sisters were also Abbesses: Sophia of Gandersheim, Ida of Sankt Marias Köln, Hedwig of Neuss, Theophano of Nevilles and Mathilda of Villach und Didenkirchen.

She was also: 999-1043 Princess-Abbess Adelheid I von Sachsen of Quedlinburg
1014-43 Reigning Abbess of Gernrode, Froshe, Vreden
1039-43 Reigning Abbess of Gandersheim (Germany)
