Barber Grandparents: 125 Kings, 143 Generations, Ted Butler Bernard and Gertrude Barber Bernard, 1978, McKinney TX, p71: "247R Isenbart, Count of Altorf (sic), (S of 236, F of 256); caused St Otmar of St Gall to be put to death in prison; saved the life of Charlemagne when he was attacked by a wild ox during a hunt, and was rewarded with the hand of Charlemagne's sister, Irmentrout. Isenbart's people were called `Welfs' because of the following incident. He met a woman whohad given birth to three children; he declared such an occurrence to be unnatural and accused her of adultery. The insulted woman, in reply, entreated heaventhat the Countess Irmentrout might be delivered of twelve boys. Fearing her husband'sanger when she was later delivered of twelve boys, Irmentrout ordered a female attendant to cast eleven of them into the river. On her way the attendant was met by the Graf (Count), who asked her what she had in the basket, and she replied `welfs' or puppies'. The Graf uncovered the basket and seeing eleven healthy baby boys, he had them brought up in a secret place and when they were grown he presented them to their mother."
