  • Married: Before 1153
  • Died: 16 Jul 1174
  • Buried: Diessen am Ammersee, Bayern

  Research Notes:

The Notæ Diessenses record the death "XVII Kal Aug" of "Hadewic comitissa", specifying that she was buried "in capitolio". The De Fundatoribus Monasterii Diessenses records the death in 1176 of "Hiadwigis uxor eius [=Pertoldi marchio Ystrie]". The necrology of Diessen records the death "1176 Kal Aug XVII" of "Hadewic com sepulta in capitolio…uxor Berhtoldi marchionis". Her origin is less clear. Wegener refers to the testament of Friedrich Pfalzgraf von Wittelsbach which names Berthold [II] Graf von Andechs as his near relative and concludes that Hedwig must therefore have been Friedrich's sister, and therefore Hedwig von Wittelsbach, daughter of Otto [II] Pfalzgraf von Wittelsbach & his wife Heilika von Lengenfeld-Hopfenohe-Pettendorf. However, there must be other possibilities. 1

  Marriage Information:

Hedwig married Gf. Berthold II VON ANDECHS, Marchese (I) di Istria, son of Gf. Berthold I VON DIESSEN, Graf von Andechs, and Sophie VON WEIMAR of Istria, before 1153. (Berthold II VON ANDECHS died on 14 Dec 1188 and was buried in Diessen am Ammersee, Bayern.)
