Liutpold or Leopold, Lord of Bavaria (d 09.908)
m. Cunigunda (dau of Erkangerus or Berthold, Count in Schwabia)

  m1. (??) Agnes of Hungary (dau of Taksony, King of Hungary)
  m2. Judith of Friuli (d after 04.936, dau of Eberhard, Count of Friuli)
  GenEU (Luitpold1) shows only Arnulf's marriage to Judith of Friaul (Friuli). The order (by birth date) of his children is not clear and the allocation of children to his wives is not certain.
A. Arnulf, Palatine of Scheyern, Duke of Upper Bavaria (d 940/85)
  m. Gerberge (dau of Rudoph I, Duke of Lower Bavaria)
  i. Welpho II, Duke of Lower Bavaria (d 980)

(a) Rudolph, Count of Zollern
  m. (1115) Agnes, baroness of Gundalfingen
  ((1)) Conrad, Burgrave of Nurnberg (a 1200)
  m. Countess of Wohburg
ROYL shows Conrad as father of Frideric I, Burgrave of Nurnberg, who married Sophia (dau of Otto, Margrave of Meissn/Misnia). GenEU (Hohenzollern1) shows "Sofie von Raabs, heiress of the last of the old Burggraves of Nurnberg Konrad von Raabs" as wife of Friedrich, Bggf von Nurnberg, whose parentage is given differently. We follow GenEU and assume that ROYL mistook Frideric as being Conrad's son when he was his son-in-law.

  m. Henry, Duke of Bavaria (d 955) EGHJRSWY
  C. Herman I, Palatine of the Rhine (d 959/996)
  GenEU (Cleves2) shows Herman's ancestry differently. That will be considered in due course.

  D. Eberhard shown by ROYL (table CCXXIII)
  This Eberhard is shown by various web sites as having been Duke of Eastern Bavaria for a short time before he was deposed.
  i. Leopold I, Margrave of Austria (d 988/94) EGHJSWY
  m. Richwara or Richardis EGHJSWY
  ii. ??
  The following Adam was identified in Griffith's Pedigrees (Llyweni, p222) as "grandson of Eberhard, the deposed Duke of Eastern Bavaria, who came to England with William the Conqueror". It is possible that he was son of Leopold. It is noted that BLG1952 (Salusbury of Firgrove) does not mention this connection which suggests that it may not be viewed as valid.
