The Sponheims
Machine translation

For the first time the Sponheim are specifically brought in Carinthia in connection. There were 1020 two counts to Carinthia and obtained there by rich Erbheiraten the counties of Lavant and of Ortenburg. In our area a Eberhard von Sponheim was first mentioned in 1044, the church is founded on the Feldberg in Sponheim, which became a monastery later. He had already owned at Wörresbach in Birkenfeldischen.

There then follow another Eberhard, then Stephan died,. 1118, Meginhard, d. 1155, his brother Rudolf, Godfrey I mentioned 1160, Gottfried II., 1181, John I. and his sons Gottfried and Heinrich. This is the sequel to Sex Count the back county Sponheim (so Witte). As far as the here we are interested Starkenburg on the Mosel, as seems certain that Count Henry she had and she applied in a so-called Präkarienvertrag the Archbishop of Trier, but only halfway to Lehn.
But this feud extended only to the outer bailey, the big tower, the chapel, the Johann was doomed to Baptist and near the burial site was located on the castle servants, like skeletal remains have shown, and the part to lies to Enkirch.

The other half to south-facing was a fief of the monastery Corvey. There one or more buildings must have been with several rooms, as they were in 1332 determined as a widow's residence. This division of the Starkenburg in 2 Lehnshälften is expected to decline to a division of the former parish of Enkirch by the later erected parish Traben a part of the territory from the older parish Enkirch exited, leaving the east-west running border running right through the Starkenburg.

In the north, according to Enkirch, was a moat. A southern moat was immediately below the new building of the restaurant -To beautiful Views- with a drawbridge, where the access to the castle led, and their repair was required even in 1658. A document from 1338 mentions a "suburbium" that had to be to reach the Enkircher page because it says: "castrorum et suburbii, que in parochia sink Rich Sita sunt".
As far as the division of Sponheim possession, so is well established that this was 1234 and later carried out and the administrative center of the rear Starkenburg County of Sponheim. They came to John I (1233-66). That the castle Starkenburg was called, arises once a Trierischer Goods Classification of 1200 and the other in a document of 1247, in the Count Gottfried renames itself after Starkenburg. Also appearing on a Burgmann seal of 1328 the name Starkenburg.
To back county Sponheim was in the mid-13th century Enkirch, Traben, Trarbach, Wolf, Irmenach, Beuren, the Birkenfeld-Brombacher care, Dill, Mr. Stone, the abbey villages (Mettlach), Göttschied, Regulshausen, Gerach, Hintertiefenbach and Höhweiler- now desolate Velvet Ritzberg, Allenbach, Wirchweiler and Winningen.
After all, the Sponheim counts also bailiffs of Himmerod in which Abbey many are buried by them and which office they probably acquired due to their possessions in the West Eifel (Ham on the Prüm) and in Luxembourg (Oure and Clervaux). Because a Vogt had also, if necessary, establish by force of law and order in the areas entrusted to him and to this end he needed Burgmannen and servants. He could find only in his castles.
It should be mentioned that John I and Gottfried 1248 the document "The Rich by Encke frijheid" built in which they especially the gunmen gave assurances that they need in fulfilling their allegiance and to assert their own interests. 1274 (Heinrich 1267-1289) received the Sponheim the Kröver Reich as Mannslehn of King Rudolf, which led to constant friction with Kurtrier later.
Still of 1324 divided the counts of the front and rear county common vassals. Count Henry (1267-89) served from then on 43 vassals with their weapons servants. Johann II. (1290-1324) has confirmed this treaty.
1294 agreed Johann II. With the Cistercian monks of Himmerod that henceforth will provide the chaplain of the castle. The monks had in Traben a courtyard with real estate (Mönchhof). The chaplain was obliged to read in the chapel the exhibition. But the court was freed with his Wingerten and fields of the Graf tax and also received a grant to natural history of the Count of Wahlenau courtyards and Enkirch.
The previous description of the historical sequence is a prime example of the resolution of Gaugrafschaften, which were originally intended only as administrative areas, but then by heredity as the root territory of individual families were considered and eventually eroded by the many donations, evaded the last Gaugrafen the new territorial rulers , the archbishops of Trier, the Count of Sponheim, etc. The Carolingian state constitution had been laid to rest and the sovereign prince arrived on the scene, with so many royal and permits.
