Editor's Notes

This is the last documented mention of margrave Ulrich I and it comes from a document of donation that could only have been made after Ulrich's death (died in March of 1070), as Welf IV was made duke of Bavaria in December of 1070. There are two possible solutions to this problem: either the "quidem" was supposed to write "quondam" (a very possible copyist error); or the time-honored phrase "in Comitatu Ǒdalrici marchionis" remained in use for some time even after the margrave's death - a very likely scenario since there was no immediate heir to the March of Carniola and the property went back to the direct potestas of the crown, that is Henry IV.
