Name: William von Gleiburg
Prefix: Count 1
Change Date: 5 MAR 2007
In contemporary sources the Gleiberg cognomen is first attested around 1070. Hermann of Salm, the anti-king, was count of Gleiberg, and the identity of the senior Luxembourgs seems to have been conceived primarily in terms of Gleiberg. But we must wait until the mid-twelfth century for one whose identity is based solely there. The individual in question is Count William of Gleiberg (fl. 1139-58), who can be affiliated with considerable confidence as Hermann II of Salm?s eldest son. The inheritance then passed cognatically.
