Although married, he was childless, and in 1122, by a grant confirmed by the Emperor henry v, he left all his property to the house of All Saints at Schaffhausen on the Rhine. The date of his death is unknown but was after 1127, when his name last appears in the records. He was buried in the oratory that he had founded at Hiltensweiler.

Citation styles gives you the ability to cite reference entries and articles according to common styles from the Modern Language Association (MLA), The Chicago Manual of Style, and the American Psychological Association (APA).

Within the “Cite this article” tool, pick a style to see how all available information looks when formatted according to that style. Then, copy and paste the text into your bibliography or works cited list.

Because each style has its own formatting nuances that evolve over time and not all information is available for every reference entry or article, cannot guarantee each citation it generates. Therefore, it’s best to use citations as a starting point before checking the style against your school or publication’s requirements and the most-recent information available at these sites:
