Albrecht of Attinghausen was one of the earliest lords of the Castle of Attinghausen. He was likely born in the first half of the 1100s.
His place in the family genealogy is uncertain, as he is known only because he appears in the ancient church necrologies in Uri. Lord Albrecht was prayed for every year on November 11, according to the Necrology of the St. Andreas Church in Attinghausen.
According to The History of the Barons of Attinghausen and Schweinsberg by Theodor Von Liebenau, and supported by the ancient church books of Attinghausen, we know the names of three very early lords of Attinghausen: Albrecht, Heinrich and Lamprecht. According to a 2011 article by Helmi Gasser, Lamprecht can be identified with the founding family of the castle, and thus by default Heinrich and Albrecht must have come inbetween.
There is no way to determine if Heinrich is Albrecht’s father, or vice versa. The younger of the two was likely born around the 1130s or 1140s and the older likely born between 1100-1120.
