Richlind of Altdorf
Richlind (died June 1045) was a member of the Swabian line of the Elder House of Welf.
When Richlind’s husband, Adalbert, was dying (in March 1045) he made a donation to the monastery of Ebersberg and left his remaining property to his wife. Richlind enlisted the help of Emperor Henry III, to transfer this property to her nephew, Welf III.
Richlind died in June 1045, when a building in which she was standing collapsed.
