  Research Notes:

Richgard's origin is confirmed by the following document: "Rihkart cometissa" donated "curtis ad Gurk" to Kloster St Paul by charter dated to [1106], witnessed by “Bernhart et Heinrih fratres eius...”. Her first marriage is indicated by the Fundatio Sancti Pauli in Carinthia which names "Poppo gener comitis" as first witness to a charter of Engelbert dated 2 Dec 1092, although this document does not name Poppo’s wife. Her second marriage is indicated by the following document: "Rihkart uxor Gebehardi comitis et filius eius Engilpreht" donated a mill “apud Chlotheim” to Ebersberg by undated charter. Richgard’s possible third marriage requires some explanation. Wegener speculates that she married Berthold [I] von Schwarzenberg as her first husband. The chronology of Richgard herself and of her first and second husbands suggests that she could only have married Berthold as her third husband.... One difficulty is that Richgard would have had sons named Engelbert by both her second and third husbands, which seems unlikely. 1

  Marriage Information:

Richgard married Poppo II VON WEIMAR, Marchese di Carniola e Istria, son of Ulrich I VON WEIMAR, Marchese di Carniola e Istria, and Zsófia ÁRPÁD, Princess of Hungary, about 1090. (Poppo II VON WEIMAR Margraf von Istrien died about 1095.)

  Marriage Information:

Richgard also married Gf. Gebhard I VON DIESSEN, son of Gf. Arnulf VON DIESSEN and Adelheid VON SULZBACH, after 1095. (Gf. Gebhard I VON DIESSEN was born about 1071 in Diessen am Ammersee, Bayern and died on 3 Oct 1102.)
