Hidda DER OSTMARK
- Died: Between 945 and 975, Jerusalem, Palestine
Compiler's 33 x great-grandmother
"Soror eorum [Gero marchiorum et Sigefridus] Hidda nominee" is named in the Annalista Saxo, which records her death in Jerusalem and that she was the mother of "Thietmarum marchionem et Geronem Coloniensem archiepiscopum". Thietmar also records the death in Jerusalem of "Gero's holy mother Hidda", undated but in a passage which records the subsequent invasion of Jerusalem by the Saracens implying that this occurred immediately after her burial. She founded Kloster Nienburg with her sons Thietmar and Gero after her husband died. 1
Hidda married Mgf. Christian DER NORDMARK, Graf im Nordthüringau. (Christian DER NORDMARK died after 945.)
