Bertha, Lady of Attinghausen (or Berchton or Berchta) is one of the earliest known ladies of the Castle of Attinghausen. She was likely born in the first half of the 1100s or sooner.
The exact genealogy around Bertha is uncertain. She appears in the ancient Necrologies of Attinghausen. It appears that the Lady of the Castle was generally the only woman afforded inclusion in the church books. As the later wives of this family appear to be known, Bertha was likely the wife of one of the earliest lords of Attinghausen. She appears in the same ancient Necrologies as three very early lords of Attinghausen: Albrecht, Heinrich, and Lamprecht. She was thus likely married to one of these men, but it is impossible to know which.
She could be the mother of one of these men, or the mother of Werner, Baron of Attinghausen, but this is uncertain.
