Quapropter omnibus Christi nostrique fidelibus tam futuris quam pręsentibus notum esse volumus, qualiter nos Frisingensi Ęcclesiae in honorem Sanctae Marię Sanctique Corbiniani constructae et consecratae ob petitionem ac interventum Berhtę reginae regni thorique nostri consortis dilectissimae, instinctu quoque Epponis Niwenburgensis episcopi, Ekkiberti marchionis, Ǒdalrici marchionis nec non ob fidele meritum Ellenhardi eiusdem sedis episcopi has villas:

Editor's Notes

The villages donated to the Bishopric of Freising are (in order of appearance): Kubed, Predloka, Osp, Rožar, Truške, Šterna and Sveti Peter. All of them are in present-day Slovenia - see the appended map.

This is the last mention of margrave Ulrich I in the official imperial diplomata. The margrave died in March 1070 (see the sources attesting to this here).
