    History Konrad I was the son of Welf, Graf in Bayern und Schwaben, Graf von Altdorf, the oldest known member of the Elder House of Welf. Konrad was the count of several counties, most notably the Aargau and Auxerre, around Lake Constance, as well as Paris from 859 to 863. He was also the lay abbot of Sainte-Germaine in Auxerre.

    Konrad\'s sister Judith was the second wife of Emperor Louis \'the Pious\'. In 858 Konrad and his family, his wife Aelis de Tours and his sons Hugo and Konrad II, abandoned their sovereign Ludwig II \'the German\', king of the East-Franks, and went over to Ludwig\'s half-brother Charles \'the Bald\', Judith\'s son. They were generously rewarded and Konrad was appointed to many countships. Ludwig II confiscated his Bavarian fiefs and lands. Konrad I died on 16 February 863.  [1
