Die Grafen von Wettin, von den Anfängen einer Dynastie by Claus-Peter Ganssauge

By Claus-Peter Ganssauge

Die Grafen von Wettin
historische Romanerzählung

Dieses Buch ist zugleich Erzählung wie auch Roman und beruht auf historischen Quellen.
Es erzählt die Geschichte eines Fürstenhauses, das seine ersten Anfänge vermutlich sowohl bei Kaiser Karl dem Großen einerseits als auch bei Karls großem Gegenspieler, Herzog Widukind von Sachsen, gehabt hat. und das 820 Jahre lang speedy ununterbrochen regiert hat. Kontinuierlich haben die Wettiner ihre Machtposition in Europa aufgebaut. Die meisten der geschilderten Personen und Ereignisse beruhen auf belegbaren Fakten. Die Anfänge liegen im Dunkeln.
Die Wettiner sind eine der ältesten Adelsfamilien Deutschlands, die es vom kleinen Burggrafen über Pfalzgrafen, Markgrafen und Kurfürsten bis zu gekrönten Königen gebracht haben. Irgendwann und irgendwo haben sie ihren Anfang gehabt, einen Anfang, an dem ein Familienmitglied aus dem Dunkel der Anonymität herausgetreten ist.

Jahrhundert eine politische Rolle gespielt haben.
1098 warfare das Jahr, in welchem Kaiser Heinrich IV. den Grafen Heinrich I. von Eilenburg, einen Vorfahren der Wettiner mit der Mark Meißen belehnt hat.
