  • ID: I50145
  • Name: Adelheid von Tyrol
  • Sex: F
  • Note:

    The bishops had to exercise their temporal rights [in Tirol] through lay vassals, of whom the most powerful in the course of the 12th century were the lords of Andechs, near Munich.
    On the extinction of this family in 1248, most of their fiefs were given by the two bishops to the father-in-law of the last lord of Andechs, Albert, count of Tirol. This new family took its name from the still existing castle of Tirol (Later Roman, Teriolis), above Meran, in the upper Adige valley, and is mentioned for the first time in 1140. Albert's elder daughter, Adelaide, married Meinhard, count of Gorz (north of Trieste); their elder son Meinhard (d. 1295) took Tirol, and the younger Gorz; but in 1500 the latter's line became extinct, and the elder line inherited its possessions.
