Chapter Summary

Austrian and German historians have demonstrated several decades ago that before the end of the first millennium prominent noble families from the lands north of the Alps included in the Ottonian and Salian empire already occupied important positions in the southeastern borderlands of that empire, in Carinthia, Carniola, Istria, and Friuli. The counts of Andechs stand out among the Bavarian families that established themselves in the area under study in a somewhat later period-the 12th and first half of the 13th centuries. What is less known is that other Bavarian noble families were intensively engaged in the southeastern parts of the empire and that they acquired important properties there. The beginnings of Ljubljana, once the capital of the Duchy of Carniola and today of the Republic of Slovenia, reveal a surprisingly wide range of Bavarian families of the high nobility holding extensive property and rights.
