History




























The House of Billung was a dynasty of Saxon noblemen in the 9th - 12th centuries.

In the 10th century, the property of the family was centered in the Bardengau around Luneburg and they controlled the march named after them. King Otto the Great entrusted  his ducal authority to Hermann Billung. For five generations, the House of Billung ruled the Duchy of Saxon.
