  • Notes 
    • [BRUNO ([905/15]-after 16 Nov 958, maybe after 30 Dec 979).  There is no proof that Bruno was the brother of Hermann Billung but this looks probable.  It is assumed that Bruno's sons were adolescent or young adults when mentioned with their father in the two sources referred to below.  This would place Bruno's birth in the range [905/15], which is too early for him to have been the son of Wichmann [II].  The reference to "pago Derlingum" in the [951/57] charter is a clear indication of a family connection as this territory appears several times in documents in which the supposed descendants of Wichmann [II] are named (see below).  "Otto…rex" granted property "Hebesheim in pago Derlingum in comitatu Brunonis" to Moritzkirche, Magdeburg by undated charter, but dated to [951/57] as it names "coniugis nostræ Aelheidis…filii nostri Liudolfi", in the presence of "eiusdem Brunonis comitis filiique Liudolfi, Geronis marchionis, Cristiani comitis nec non Liutharii et Friderici comitum". "Otto…rex" gave property "in pago Hessi in comitatu comitis qui dicitur Bern in loco Uuestnetri" which "ibidem Bruninc comes filiusque eius Amalunc in beneficium habere visi sunt" to "fideli nostro Retolt" by charter dated 16 Nov 958. "Otto…imperator augustus" gave judgment in a dispute between Werner Abbot of Fulda and Gozbert Abbot of Hersfeld, concerning ship travel along the Hörsel, by charter dated 30 Dec 979, which names "comites nostros Sigebertum, Sigefridum et Brunonem", although if this refers to the same Count Bruno he would have been very old at the time.  He married ---.  The name of Bruno's wife is not known.]  Bruno and his wife had [two] children.
