Genealogical table for the House of Ribeaupierre (Rappoltstein)

Arbre généalogique de la Maison de Ribeaupierre d'Alsace

This page presents a genealogical chart for the Ribeaupierre, a noble family in Alsace from the twelfth to seventeenth centuries. I built it from the references listed below primarily to get a more complete outline. This table picks up where the Eguisheim table ends. Here I have made a more workaday table without adding any family connections to other important noble families. The principal reference data is from an excellent web publication from the Rappoltstein CV of Catholic German Students' Association, (chronik.rappoltstein.de). Other references are used to check and add depth.

Note: I have some nagging reservations about the Rappoltstein CV. While I believe the data and analysis are excellent and have gratefully incorporated it, the group itself puzzles me somewhat. They seem a bit over-conservative, and for Germany I worry about things too conservative. In their publications dealing with the 20th century*, I get the impression they mourn «Jahres der Trauer 1918» rather overmuch about the "loss" of their brethren in Elsaß.
Germany already has tried Anschluss, it did not work out well for them. I think the time for mourning is past.

My historical references concerning the Ribeaupierre are found in Tome VI above.
