    The Billung Dynasty was the primary ruling dynasty in Saxony in the 10th and 11th centuries. It was founded by Hermann Billung, who in 936 received from the German king (and future emperor) Otto I a march, or border territory, on the lower Elbe River to be held against the pagan Slavic Wends. In 961 Otto granted Hermann the Saxon ducal title, which on Hermann's death (973) passed to his son and thereafter to his descendants.

    Hermann Billung was probably married twice, first to a woman named Oda (who died on 15 March in an unknown year), and second to Hildegarde of Westerbourg.
    He had five children.
