From the Foundation for Medieval Genealogy page on Saxony:

IMMED [I] . Widukind names (in order) "Widukind, Immed et Reginbern" as brothers of Queen Mathilde[40].

According to the German Wikipedia page on Ringelheim:

Ringelheim existed before Frankish times at a crossroad of two military and trade routes (between Brunswick, Goslar, and Hildesheim). It had jurisdiction over the salt district of Saltzgitteraner.

Widukind records that Meinwerk Bishop of Paderborn (the supposed grandson of Immed [III], see below) was "paterno genere a Thiedrico Mathilde reginæ fratre"[76]. It is possible that "Thiedrico" in this source is an error for "Immed", as this is the only reference to Queen Mathilde having a brother named Theoderich. As will be seen below, it has not been possible to corroborate many of the dates relating to his supposed descendants, as shown in the same table in Europäische Stammtafeln, against primary sources. “Ymmadus comes” donated property “in Lithingi, in pago ---” to Corvey monastery, witnessed by “Thuring comes, Amalung comes…”[77].
