About Princess Richlint von Sachsen, Herzogin von Schwaben

There is some uncertainty about her parentage. Most sources identify her as a daughter of the Emperor Otto. Some sources suggest she might have been a daughter of his son Liudulf. She was appointed the first Princess-Abbess (Reichsäbtissin) of Quedlinburg. She also acted as "domina imperialis, " and followed her brother Otto II on his journey to Italy. She acted regent for her nephew, Otto III and as his representative in Saxony with the additional titles of Metropolitana of Quedlinburg and Matrixcia of Saxony (Substitute and Representive of the Emperor). She is documented 955-999.,%20Kings.htm#RichlintMKonra...

[RICHLIND (-[after 1 Nov 1007]). The Historia Welforum names "filia Ottonis magnis imperatoris…Richlint" as wife of "Couno comes"[333]. "Otto…imperator augustus" granted property by the spurious charter dated 13 Jan 965 to the church of Oehningen, built according to the document by "domnus Chono comes de Oningen" with the consent of "uxoris sui Richlinde…"[334]. She may be "domna Rilint" from whom "Heinricus…rex" acquired property "in Halla in pago Salzburcgouui in comitatu Thiemonis comitis", which he donated to the bishopric of Bamberg by charter dated 1 Nov 1007[335]. Jackman[336] identifies her as daughter of Liudolf [of Saxony] Duke of Swabia, son of Emperor Otto I, but the question is not without controversy. In view of the clear statement in the Historia Welforum and the spurious charter, it has been decided to show her here as the child of Emperor Otto I despite the unreliability of these sources, but in square brackets to indicate doubt. If this is correct, she must presumably have been the child of the emperor's second marriage, unless she was illegitimate. m ([968][337]%29 KONRAD [Kuno] von Öhningen, son of --- (-20 Aug 997).
