Somewhat amusingly, this article has "Babenberg" as the lowest-scoring house. I think they mean "Barenberg" a much more obscure German lineage which only comes to historians' attention through its similarity to the afforementioned house Babenberg. Babenberg was actually quite famous: in the 1100s Leopold V united much of modern day Austria, took part in the Third Crusade, captured Richard I Lionheart. His son, Leopold VI, united the rest of Austria, created Vienna as the centre of German culture and brokered a peace between the Emperor and the Pope. The importance of this Babenberg dynasty is underlined by the fact that Leopold V married into the Kommenos family and later into the house of Habsburg. So scoring a few more than 1000 points...

Seeing as the game makes a note not to confuse the two, perhaps we should leave the error. Or should I check and correct next time I finish the game? — Preceding unsigned comment added by (Talk) 13:35, 14 August 2014 (CEST)

The score says that it is the Babenberger house - not Babenberg and not Barenberg. In game, it specifically says that they are not the slightly more famous House of Babenberg. But I don't care to correct it. - Purgatoryness (talk) 08:58, 2 June 2015 (CEST)
After checking in-game, I found they're referring to the House of Henneberg. In-game, the Babenbergers are Barons of Henneberg, so not even playable. —Yendor (talk) 13:43, 20 April 2018 (CEST)
