Burchardinger (Rhaetian noble family)

Speculations about Burchard III.
It is mentioned again and again that Duke Burchard III. had entered into a previous marriage with Hadwig before his documented marriage , from which children had also emerged. This “first marriage” with Wieltrud, an Immedingerin, is scientifically only speculation and cannot be documented. Another argument against this thesis is that Emperor Otto II. After the death of Burchard III. 973 transferred the Swabian duke title Otto I , which came from a completely different line (namely the Liudolfinger ). Had Burchard III. had legitimate descendants, the emperor would hardly have been able to pass them over to the ducal succession.
Alfons Zettler writes about this in his History of the Duchy of Swabia : "But we have no more detailed information about whether Burchard's marriage to Hadwig was his first, nor whether children resulted from it or from a possible earlier marriage." (P. 150)
